That's cool, I didn't know you were at AGWC!
Seller: "Buying Wing 2, eh? Well, you know, all your friends died."My first real game was wing commander 1. I remember being heartbroken with wing2 came out and the sales rep telling me all my friends died.
Heh, it was always kind of funny how the claw being torpedoed was super shocking and heart-wrenching, then everyone you cared about showed up alive one by one. Halcyon and Shotglass were the only characters who didn't survive, weren't they?
Hello all. My name is Lee, and I'm a 54- yr. old Engineer out of South Carolina. I like to consider myself part of the original video game generation, as I weaned off of PONG and still own my Atari 2600 I got as a sophomore in high school, in 1980. My favorite video game was Galaga - my friend and I would flip the game dozens of times, scoring in the millions each, and at one local video game parlor the game's motherboard burned out, and the owner blamed us for that, LOL. Couldn't really blame him though - we'd be on that game for hours playing, off of only 50 cents.
Have always loved FPS games and flight combat style games. I got the Privateer game as a classic CD game from Origin for a Win95 Packard Dell PC I got in '95, and enjoyed the game immensely. When the Privateer 2 game came out, I got that as well, and like the 1st version I played both into the ground until the PC crashed in 2003. Instead of fixing the old box, I replaced it with a WinXP PC, and fell out of playing the games until I found the Privateer gm in DOS format online for downloading, and played it again until the original HD on my PC crashed during a bad winter storm.
Anyhow, I just recently found the Privateer 2 DOS gm at GOG.com and decided to give it a try. Just starting out with it, but enjoying it thus far, bringing back the memories. Cheers!
