    No, but you got the platform right! This was released a bit later, around the final death of those platforms.

    Somewhat obscure this one, mainly thanks to the platforms it was released on, and the date of release.

    I'll provide more hints if needed.

    Definitely Marathon, or Marathon 2 more likely (if we're going for "released for PC in the 90s", since Marathon and Marathon Infinity were only ported to PC later, with Marathon 2 being the only one...

    I thought the current pic might be Pacific Islands, but I vaguely remember that being a team tank game, not solo. Maybe it's the prequel, Team Yankee (which I never played)?

    Whenever anyone talks about "computers in computer games", the first thing I think of is B.A.T. (and its sequel), which were Amiga/ST/PC RPGs. The main character has an actual programmable...

    Right, but I suspect there *was* loading on the console versions, and that's what the pre-rendered cutscenes were for. I suspect that the internal logic of "we prerender cutscenes to cover loading...

    No, it probably is that bridge - I was starting to suspect that I was doing it the "hard" (i.e. wrong) way just before I gave up and posted in this thread!

    My understanding is that the copy of Doom on Steam is the DOS version (running in DOSBox), so there's no way for it to include the Steamworks DRM. In any case, all you're buying is the WAD files...

    No need to be coy about free copies of Doom: it was open sourced some time ago, and there are plenty of free forks of it now. I think Romero even opened the licensing of the art assets a bit later,...

    Cheers, everyone.

    I shall keep an eye out on 650 Ti Boost (although the prices seem bad for them at the moment) and 7790/7850 prices over the next week or two.

  21. Effective for the price graphics card replacements for dying card?

    After 6 or so years of stalwart service, my loyal 8800GT is finally dying (of what I suspect to be failing thermal transfer compound).

    I bought The Stanley Parable, since apparently it's brilliant (and since it's in the daily sale, it'll never be that cheap again during the sale period).
