Sarge wrote:MrPopo, did you ever give Fury3 a try? I got that one with my computer, actually. One of the first Windows '95 / DirectX games out there. I also just found out that there was another sequel, Hellbender. Interesting.

Fury3 was the first of the Terminal Reality games I was aware of, in that I was at a buddy's house when he was finishing up a level. I then picked up Terminal Velocity off of a PC Gamer disc that had 12 full classic games (which introduced me to a lot of good stuff) and played it some, but never finished it. Then I snagged it from GOG. I've never actually played Fury3, though.

Dug up a reference to the games that were on it:

- Road & Track Presents: The Need for Speed
- Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss
- Ultima I: The First Age of Darkness
- The Secret of Monkey Island
- Links: The Challenge of Golf
- X-COM: UFO Defense
- Wing Commander
- Alone in the Dark
- Terminal Velocity
- Duke Nukem II
- King's Quest
- Descent

There was another PC Gamer disc I had that had the following free games:

- Battlecruiser: 3000AD
- Betrayal at Krondor
- Descent
- Red Baron
- Star Control II
- Zork
- Zork II
- Zork III

Man, life was more awesome back in the day if you didn't mind playing older games. I fell in love with Star Control II after I installed it and never would have found out about it otherwise.

The remakes are much easier than the originals. You can even set them to remove un-winnable situations and not being able to use items in the wrong place, those two things alone take away so much of the frustration of the original / the Sierra remake.

Fury3 is a spiritual sequel to TV. New areas, slightly different HUD. Exploration is key in both games, you get much better weapons as well as ammo for those weapons.

I beat Legend of Legaia this evening!

Legend of Legaia is the first game by developer Contrail who would go on to help develop Wild Arms 2 & 3. There are some major similarities between the two games. The game's graphics are very early 3D, so there are some rough edges and muddy textures. The game's story is not as crazy as Wild Arms though as it is much more straight forward and simple. It's an early PS1 RPG through and through. The battle system is fun and the game is very solid overall with some enjoyable and humorous moments spread throughout it. However, it is not stellar and does not stand out above the pack. If you like a good, solid, a little boring and similar RPG, then it is worth a play through.

Meh. Not as entertaining as the other DLCs. It doesn't play up the Big Game Hunt aspect in the main story of the DLC, the actual villain is wasted potential, and the overall notion of the Big Game Hunt itself is boring compared to the other DLCs. It's killing dudes with no window dressing.

This used to be slightly different but I accidentally overwrote it with my Duke Nukem II review because I got my windows mixed up.

For awhile I've felt like verbally describing the games I've been finishing has been a losing wager. I don't have much fun writing it up, and it's not of particular interest to anyone.

So, I've decided to do something different with this; it's happening in two ways.

Way number 1, I'll be giving a discrete opinion with some classifications I've made. This will be represented by one of three icons, defined (ish) here:

Image I liked it / It was good
Image I didn't like it / It was bad / Very disappointing
Image Didn't move me / Meh / It was alright

Way number 2, I'll include an anecdote, reference, picture, meme, or whatever, to further describe the way I think about the game, convey the feeling it gave me, or what I think can represent what the game means, in general.

All of this is entirely subjective on my part, and the reader's part (virtually independent of one another). I don't expect any one else to understand this post and that's fine. I hope people do enjoy this, as it's pretty silly, but can still convey some thoughts more succinctly than long winded paragraphs.

People will agree, disagree, and think I'm an idiot. That's fine.
So, here we go.
