    I vote for RobF.
    I basically agree with everything he's said.

    That said, I'm not willing to jump up and down on Quanta. As Deano said, he's volunteering his time and frankly...

    I really liked Looper.

    Most time travel movies fall down when you think about them too much, and I remember realising on the train home that it had one gigantic logical flaw. But it had done...

    It's worth pointing out that for some unknown reason the Tie Fighter Release doesn't include the 1995 CD-ROM edition.
    That's the definitive version, with SVGA graphics, full voices and the iMuse...

    I imagine it would be controllable with a joypad, but it's not going to feel half as good.

    I just played the first few levels of the Marine Single Player, and it's still really atmospheric and can still scare the crap out of you when an alien suddenly jumps in your face.

    Hmm. I definitely remember a lot of people complaining all the textures were funky. That's why I decided against buying it on steam a few years back.

    See, TRUE DETECTIVE is a show that I wrote off purely because it has a dumb name.

    Wing Commander was never a patch on Tie Fighter when it came to flying. They had a few ideas for the out of combat bits though, even if they did them in a mostly cheesy way.

    There's a lot to what you say. But I do think that the whole "video game plots are terrible" thing gets trotted out too much.
    Video game plots tend to be what they need to be.

    Putting both the DOS and Windows versions in one pack is nice. (Though I already have both on disk for Tie Fighter).

    It's such a shame that the updated windows versions lost iMuse soundtracks......

    It seems that this also means GOG will FINALLY be getting the rest of the Lucasarts back catalogue. I can see myself buying the whole lot of that if they do one of those mega-bundles in the future. ...
