Howdy folks, and welcome to the Games Acquired 2020 thread where we share our latest gaming acquisitions! As the resident bad-financial-decision-maker of the forums, I figured it was appropriate that I start the thread this year as I did last year. Feel free to share as little or as much as you want in any format you want (within reason). Below are links to previous years' threads if you need an example.

Princess Tomato looking so good! That’s one I still need for my collection, and I always loved the cover art. Let us know your thoughts on how it plays.

Speaking of cover art, Wizardry has the best ever, and I bought my copy of Ultimate Wizardry Archives based on the sweet cover art alone. I’m going to try to get it running on DOSBox in one of my children’s old Android Tablets. (You know, in my spare time...) When I actually play through the first few games, however, I will likely play the Japanese PSX versions, which I recently learned (1) are playable entirely in English without a patch; (2) the best versions of the original games; and (3) not all that expensive.

Finally, how’s Dungeon Explorer? Is it the same as the PSP Dungeon Explorer game? I always assumed it was, but looking into it, I’m not so sure...

@prfsnl_gmr

I actually prefer Wizardry on consoles too. That said, I don't think everything contained on the Ultimate Wizardry Archives has an English console port (I could be wrong here, due to those Japanese games in English, as you noted) and GOG.com just has parts 6-8.
(Actually, wait, what the hell is this?!)

Whatever the case, this disc is pretty swell. I used to have the similar Ultima Collection but unfortunately lost that somewhere along the way. Thankfully, those are all on GOG.

I think the DS and PSP Dungeon Explorer games are actually different. They were given the same title for their American releases, but have different names in Japan. Weird.

@Note

Thanks! I'm a very "visual person" and retro games are cute.

That's the PS3 game. Another one of those Japanese developed Wizardry games.

On an unrelated note, today I learned that the boards can contextually create hyperlinks, without the html flags--.
