Runescape Classic to Shut Down August 6th

Jagex is bringing the old school classic Runescape to a close forever in a mere two months time. On August 6th, the Runescape Classic servers, after 17 years of service, close down. Jagex cited unsolvable technical issues as part of the reason in their announcement which you can read here.

There is still two months left. Many people running characters which have been around for more than a decade will have that time to say goodbye.

Unreal Gold is Free on GOG.com!

If you don't have a GOG.com account, now is a good time to set one up. Unreal Gold, recently covered by LGR, is a classic FPS with large atmopheric levels and great combat mechanics. It was the first game I ever played which had built in bots for playing deathmatch multiplayer against the PC, which was very useful back before broadband internet.

Head over to GOG.com and secure a copy now. 

EDIT: It is also currently free on Steam!

DWTerminator: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (+ Tribunal & Bloodmoon Expansions)

Morrowind gets the deep analytical treatment from DWTerminator. This was a treat to see since I really enjoyed when he did this for Daggerfall. It's a lengthy watch at 42 minutes. And some of this review falls prety to "but those old graphics though", it does include coverage of the expansion packs and it also comes from the stand point of someone who has really spent a lot of time with the game. Check it out.

LGR - Unreal 20 Years Later: A Retrospective

LGR dives deep into the game that started the Unreal franchise. I had this game with the Gateway 2000 machine that my family had back in the late 90s. This was the first game I ever laid eyes on that utilized the 3dfx VooDoo card that we had in that rig.

For a classic PC gamer, LGR videos are always an event. Enjoy!
