  1. Keep in mind that "seasonal gaming" applies to any point in the year; the Hardball series in July, for instance. I just chose the October example because of my own, personal tradition.
  2. For the past three or so years, I've played Super Castlevania IV over the course of October, in honor of...well, the general spooky nature of the month (especially the last day of it). Fun times. Does anyone else here have traditions in that vein? Playing a certain game at a certain point each year, that sort of thing.
  3. Blood Plasma Pack, E6L2. Need to find one more secret before I beat the level.
  4. I say go for it. Ross has rescued multiple games from extinction, so why not try to get Vietcong 1 and 2 brought back?
  5. Half-Life. Fun fact, trying to force uninstall Sierra Utilities (I have an old copy of the game) without uninstalling the game first will utterly obliterate the directory you installed it. I made the decision to install it to my Games directory, which was subsequently decimated. Damn near everything was wiped out, and I didn't have everything backed up right off the bat. Good thing I didn't try to force the uninstall from the C:\\ drive, otherwise....
  6. Deus Ex. Got the Helios ending. Good times.
  7. I haven't seen Tron Legacy in ages, so I completely forgot that part....granted, in my idea, Lex actually shows up at meetings and has conference-call shouting matches with the Board over his proposals, but other than that, your description of it does make sense. Here's a custom of Lex I made to go with this idea.
  8. So I've been kicking around an idea for what's probably going to be DC Comics Elseworlds fanfiction (there's no way I'm ever going to get to pitch this to the actual heads of DC)....basically, it revolves around Lex Luthor (looking like Jesse Eisenberg, because I refuse to believe he was playing Lex in "Batman v Superman") and Superman actually working together to make Metropolis a better place. The "evil rich people" role would be filled by the LexCorp board of directors (all octogenarians, effectively embodying "status quo" and "the good old days", aka the days of the gas crisis and other such things) and Morgan Edge (because let's be honest, corrupt media moguls are an "in" thing these days). Lex, in my idea, is more of a Steve Jobs (minus the crippling character flaws)/Bill Gates/Elon Musk type, rather than a Boesky or Gordan Gecko; he legitimately wants to help the people of Metropolis, and despite his humanistic tendencies, he ends up more fascinated by Superman than just thinking "ALIEN, KILL IT". I'd go into more detail, but first, I'd just like to know if this makes any sense at all. I've had at least two people tell me "Lex isn't supposed to be a hero", and one tell me to keep going with the idea....maybe this is just me looking for gratification/proof I'm not crazy for thinking a heroic Lex would be cool. I dunno. I figured that if anyone could keep me on an even keel with this, it'd be the fellow fans of Ross Scott (and Ross himself, seeing as how one of the ideas I had for Lex improving Metropolis would be to design an OS that supersedes Windows and follows Ross's ideas of how an OS should be intuitive and user-friendly).
  9. Thankfully, the storm has indeed long since passed, and the town's electricity has been restored since Wednesday. Good stuff. There are two "developing" weather bits in the tropics that won't be threats to my area, but they can still go burn in Hurricane Hell. I'm hoping the Game Dungeon has never been wracked by hurricanes...
  10. Right, so for those who keep track of the national weather patterns, a storm by the name of Delta happened to pass over my area last Friday. Long in a short: the power grid is still a shambles, the ISP has had to install a generator at their head office to keep the fiber-optic Internet working (and the generator has had issues since installation, so Internet use is intermittent at best), and sleeping arrangements have been...really really stupid over the past few days. Only one room in the house has air conditioning (thanks to the generator), and....yeah. We have a roof, we have running water, but a lot of the other stuff is just.... Needless to say, I REALLY hate hurricane season. Hoping everyone else here has been able to avoid the myriad (fun word, that) of storms that've popped up this year, and that anyone who's had to deal with storms has been able to stay safe (and retain their sanity)...but yeah, November 1 can't get here soon enough. It doesn't help that the meteorologist on Channel 3 decided to replay the radar track of Delta last night, in case everyone who's still recovering from it didn't see the live feed....or something. ENGH.
  11. My brother got UNDERTALE and Cuphead on PS4 two weeks ago, if that counts.
  12. My guess is, since the game was moved from Apogee to Homebrew Software, they didn't have a Lee Jackson or a Bobby Prince to make epic tunes for them and had to make do. From what I remember, some of the second and third episodes' tracks aren't as trippy.
  13. I never had a problem with the music; as long as you're using AdLib or Soundblaster, it doesn't really grate on my nerves. You do have to run the game at a pretty high framerate to get smooth scrolling, though, unless you like really choppy movement.
