Landis: Night Night Cream Puff: BudTheSpud: Crabs_Can_Polevault:

+2 internets to you for being the third person I know who used those chumps to speed-level. Once I hit level 40 or so I'd fly to E4, teleport to the oasis of +50 to all stats (can't remember the real name of it, but it was 2 north and 8 east of where you 'landed'), then fly to C2 and hoof it over to the mountain where they lived. With any luck at least one person would survive the barrage of frenzies and get mad EXP. If I was really lucky, it would be my thief, who could then open the black chest and get the crazy-powerful gear.

And don't forget, always train in Atlantis to get the most HP and MP per level. If only they had allowed you to port your MM2 characters into MM3...

Xeen is still my favorite of the pseudo-3D games, and 7 was the best of the actually 3D ones.


It was always quite exciting the first time you go after the Cuisinarts. Having that one lone survivor usually made me do a little happy dance. Time to crack out the Genesis again.

I'm sure this has been said at least 2 dozen times so far, but I can't be bothered to read the whole thread, so:

1) Zynga can rot in hell

2) excellent headline

SevenizGud: I wonder if GRPN is down in sympathy (down 6%). I am short GRPN, so good!

In other news,

Because People in power are Stupid: In the 1990's I spent thousands of dollars on chess books and for what - a mere 300 point improvement in my game.

d4!

Gordon Bennett: BudTheSpud: Crabs_Can_Polevault: A lovely sentiment and all-really, it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of anthropomorphized ass-cancers-but the damage is done. The momentary success of their "business model" of creating games but charging for playability has spread to a lot of other big-name manufacturers of so-called "games." And degraded the whole notion of "games" for everyone else.

I miss Electronic Arts. And I mean the original, artistically inspired Electronic Arts, not the digital sweatshop that it's become.

/Never forget...


By the time EA were releasing games on console they were already in decline. Their earlier games on Apple II, C64 and Atari 8 bit were truly creative, absolutely original and completely unique.

Archon
Realm of Impossibility
Seven Cities of Gold
Adventure Construction Set
Racing Destruction Set
Mail Order Monsters
Worms
MULE

Plus more. Those were all fantastic games that were like nothing else that had come before and precious little since.


Mind you, by comparison Zynga makes even today's shambolic Electronic Arts look reputable.


Somebody really needs to remake Mail Order Monsters, that game was epic.
