Website devoted to the PC Gamer Demo disks???

Post by Mike 01Hawk » Thu Sep 21, 2006 9:06 pm

Is there a website that delves into all the Demo Releases? You know, lists what is on each Floppy/CD/DVD, which ones had 'exclusive' content back in the day, and even those rare disks that included Full versions of games?
I'll work on it later

If you want to know my age check my profile...:suspicious:
I don't get it why do you want to know if there is a site that delves into demos when at this moment you can get any and I stress ANY game full versioned, warezed or not :suspicious:

Ohhhh, you thought I meant PC demos... no.. I meant "PC Gamer" Demos, as in the packin Floppy/CD/DVD that came with PC Gamer magazine.

And yes, they released a few full versions on their demo cds that I know of... one of the best for vintage gamers is their Classic Games Collection issue, has full registered versions of Duke Nukem 2, Ultima 1, Ultima Underworld, Wing Commander, King's Quest, Descent, Alone in the Dark, Monkey Island, Terminal Velocity, Need for Speed, Links, and X-Com: UFO Defense :D
