Archives for PC Oldies

Implanted memories and a four year lifespan

A bit late to this, as usual, but as it’s now November 2019, it seems like as good a time as any to mention that Blade Runner is now supported by ScummVM. Until recently, the game was technically playable on 64-bit Windows, and I personally found the jiggery-pokery here sufficient to get things up and running […]

Moments in Gaming: Thumbs Down

Warning: spoilers for Fallout New Vegas lie ahead… The Fallout series is set in various locations around the former USA, a couple of centuries after civilisation ended in a nuclear apocalypse. For New Vegas (the fourth in the series), we focus on the Mojave desert. At its heart lies Vegas itself, miraculously largely untouched by […]

Blizzard rejuvenate their orcs and demons

A few pieces of belated Blizzard-related news came to my attention recently. Let’s start with the item that everyone else has known for months: they are working on a new, comprehensively updated release of Warcraft 3. This has me quite excited, ready to lead armies of orcs and trolls once again. WC3 features some excellent […]

Review: I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream

Hi there. For today’s review we have a dark point and click adventure with some literary roots: I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream.

Moments in Gaming: The Laa Laa Goal

Let’s journey back to a weekend evening, sometime in 1998 (or possibly 1999), when a handful of cool dudes are doing what all 17 year-olds should be doing on a Friday or Saturday night: huddling around a beige PC playing computer games. Unusually, virtual football is on the menu, with a shared love of Ubisoft’s […]
