I have Nethack on my computer, just have played it in a few years. But, too me, it's still one of the best Roguelike adventure game. Heck, I even have Hack which is the predecessor to Nethack.

I'm a fan of the Dark Sun series and I still own a CD copy of both games.

I'm also a fan of D&D, own almost all PC games minus a few games.

Also, own the 2 D&D games on XBOX.

I like both Dark Sun games but I like the first one better.

Found hard to find freeware Dos RPG: Avalon

While searching thru the archives of Gamehippo at archive. org, I found an old DOS game called Avalon which I thought was lost because the author's site went down more than 10+ years ago and I couldn't find a copy. In fact, archive.org even had a copy of Avalon. I download Avalon and put it on a fil...

Well, in my area, we had about 1-2 weeks of 90+ degree weather in early Agust but other than that temps have been steady in the early-late 70's early 80's.

Lost my job in early January and having a tough time finding another one because of how bad the economy is in the USA. Worked for 8 years for the DHL shipping company and then they decide to close down all their sort hubs in the USA.

I think that it's cool that Bethseda Softworks has released Elder Scrolls: Arena and Daggerfall for free download. Both of these games are great so is Morrowind and Oblivion. Bethseda is one company who can give you good graphics and good gameplay in their games, most companies seem to focus on just...

Just another case of the RIAA being greedy again. But to charge her $80,000 per song instead of $9,250 shows how greedy the record companies are. In fact, I buy lots of CD's except, I buy all my cd's used because I don't want to give my money to the RIAA who are greedy idiots who also don't give a c...

I read about what happened to 3D Realms (formally Apogee) a few days ago. Doesn't surprise me though. 3D Realms claimed for the past 12 years that they were working on Duke Nukem Forever. Heck, I knew this game wasn't going to come out, George Broussard is one of the biggest idiots in the video game...

Wally*Won_Kenobie,

I found out about the above site yesterday. I found it in a video game magazine. These senators claim that their sold-called game laws are being made to stop minors from buying games but unfortuntely, they (the US gov't) wants to control the video game industry.
