    I haven't gone back and played old GTAs since I played GTAIV. How do they hold up, especially after the release of GTAV?

    Clive Barker's Undying. One of the best game I have ever played in my life. For those who love single player campaigns, I highly recommend it. You can get it from GOG.com these days.

    This is a Tweak Guide video for Star Wars: Tie Fighter Collector's CD from 1995. I will be covering the following:

    - Fullscreen resolution
    - Window resolution
    - Output modes
    - Scaler
    - Aspect ratio for correct 4:3 image
    - CPU cycles to avoid turrets not firing issue
    - Sample rate for better quality Sound Blaster
    - Configuring a MIDI Synth
    - Soundfonts
    - Changing the game to output General MIDI
    - Joystick tweaks for hat and throttle
    - DOSBox key mapper
    - Using the GOG files to create an installation CD
    - Installing and playing the game with the created installation CD

    Fired up Missile Command on a woody 3 switch Atari 2600 - amazingly just as stressful as I remember it! ;)

    You know that there's CorsixTH - Open source Theme Hospital for download, right?

    They've done an awesome job of it too. :thumbup::thumbup:

    Dungeon Keeper and Dungeon Keeper 2, still isn't anything similar unless I've missed something.

    Planescape: Torment, not so much replayed as finally finished, every copy I've had was broken at the same point in the questline due to corrupted data and I never got around to finding a non-corrupted version until a few weeks ago

    Don't know if you'd consider it 'old' but I've been replaying Fallout (first).

    This morning it's been driving me nuts! I haven't played it in so long, and I've been trying to find the leader of Sandy Shades for about 20 minutes :D

    I remember not liking the game much even when it was new.

    Looking at the videos... it must be the nostalgia that makes you like the game now?

    Master of Orion 2 (circa 94?) is my go to.

    I've got it installed on the work laptop - play it on planes occasionally. You'll be amazed who jumps in with tips\questions while sitting next to me!

    Sounds like there's a remake in the works as well with most of the original team.

    Morrowind using Steam's native xbox 360 controller support. Works flawlessly :)

    As this has been necroed, can somebody tell me what an xgame is? There's one at the op shop and I've no clue what it's for. I thought the original xbox games have xbox on them?

    Re-Volt

    Impossible to finish this. Has anyone managed to clock this frustrating as hell gem?

    Also currently doing speed runs for Double Dragon II: The Revenge for the tube.

    1982! ;)

    The last round of levels of revolt come down to luck. Keep at it.

    Now Powerslide is a keyboard busting game. Fuck that game.

    Ahhhh Powerslide that takes me back, made right here in South Australia too. Been playing a bit of Mechwarrior 4 recently since hearing of Mech 5:Mercs but since the initial tease not much else has been said about it :upset:

    In addition to Stunts, I fired up an old install of Teslagrad I got from one of the early IndieBoxes. I remember it being quite a fun platformer, but never ended up finishing it. It's a bit clunky getting back into it cold when my save game is a fair way in, but it should be beatable :thumbup:

    Assassins' Creed (first game). Still haven't finished it after 35 hours or so, been about five years so far.
