It’s been another long break, while I’ve been distracted with other things. In all honesty, I think this blog is nearly dead as I don’t have much motivation to continue with it. At this rate, I’ll never play Lazarus and if I’m entirely honest I think the reason is that I don’t want the time and effort of writing up such a large and complex game.
So rather than letting this drift indefinitely, I’m going to reduce my aims for the remainder of this blog so that I can at least wrap it up neatly. I’ve still got the option of coming back and doing a few more games at a later date if I want. So I’m now looking to play Longbow 2, Super Wing Commander and I’ll also take a look at the Origin FX Screen Saver which I finally picked up recently. The game I’m starting next is none of these, however. I’ve played most Looking Glass games now so I thought I’d finish them off. I’ll give Flight Unlimited a miss and instead play the final one remaining which is Terra Nova. This is advertised as having Wing Commander 3/4 style production values which sounds right up my street although it’s only on the one CD so there can’t be all that much FMV. I’ll start on that over the weekend with a post on Monday by the latest.
My collection of Origin software is nearly complete now, having picked up Origin FX and also Super Wing Commander recently. Caverns of Callisto still eludes me, I’m keen on trying out Super Wing Commander and owning the original game gives me the option of picking up a real 3DO to play it on if all else fails. They go for about £30 apparently which isn’t going to break the bank. For anyone curious about what the collection looks like these days, I was advised to document it all for insurance reasons. I figured the easiest way to do that was to do a quick video on my phone which I thought I may as well share via youtube (which also means I can’t lose it). It’s less than exciting but for anyone curious here is the collection as it stands these days:-
