Wasteland 2 Kickstarter? Nobody talking about this?!

Hey everybody, I have not been here to hang out with my DOS gaming buddies for ages, but I just figured on the off-chance that someone has been living under an e-rock for the last few weeks, that I should get the word out here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2 Brian Fargo and l...

Thank you, Vangar. I am sorry I did not see this post sooner to give you props when you might have actually seen it. This is exactly the kind of thing I am looking for--though I would indeed want a sound card (unless I wanted to emulate my DOS gaming experiences from 1988 instead of 1992, and really...

I feel like there is a slight chance it is Betrayal at Krondor. Other than "customize your character's spells" everything fits pretty well.

Depending on how you are looking at it, Diablo and Diablo II could be said to automatically save your progress (I noticed you included Lemmings for Windows, so I figured Windows games were not off-limits). I know there was an early-ish CRPG that saved automatically, but I cannot think of which one (...

As I said a few posts back, I understand his need (and am trying to accomplish it myself). For one thing, DOSBox is a great emulator, but still hardly a perfect representation of the original--not only does it feel different to be playing these games on a sleek laptop than on a grungy old pile of cr...

It sounds like a description of King's Bounty made by someone who was drunk when playing and trying to recall the details the next morning with a severe hangover. So, check out King's Bounty (the original, not the recent Russian remake) and see if that was it. Particularly since it is basically the ...

Could you actually play Claw in DOS? Huh, I suppose it WAS out around the same time as Blood (which I remember because I ordered a Blood t-shirt from the Monolith store and they somehow randomly sent me Claw by mistake [yes, they did also send me the shirt later; Monolith rules]).

Is it Planetfall or Stationfall? I cannot imagine it would not be one of those, as the protagonist of both is a janitor on a spaceship.

5.25" / 5 1/4" floppy drive-USB?

Yes, seriously. I have discussed this topic at length with some of my nerdier friends, have used The Google dozens of times, and have generally continually come up with nothing--has anyone anywhere ever made a USB 5.25" floppy drive? Yes, I realize all I have to do is find an old computer that has b...

I do not remember every aspect you mention specifically, but I am about 95% sure this is Hero's Quest I: So You Want to Be a Hero (later renamed to Quest for Glory I, first in the series of 5). It came on 10 disks for me, but they were most likely low-density, and even though I feel like they would ...

I am not the original poster, but considering I came to this exact same place to ask the exact same question, we can just pick up where he left off, with the addition of all the knowledge you imparted. It is hard to blame you for not promoting that he actually buy a laptop; there are definite proble...
