    Hmm, it definitely wasn't a softcore movie from what I remember. Any other tips?

    I used to have this early 90's TSR PC game that was a sort of battle chess type game, the chessboard was a landmass with different environmental things like a river going down the middle or lava pools that acted as impediments kind of like the Stratego Board Game.

    Turn based or real time?
    Was it Blood & Magic? (That's the very first TSR licensed RTS.)

    It was battlechess like in that you had I want to say 5 or 10 pieces. I do remember elementals acted like rooks and say a water elemental could traverse the river while the fire could the lava pits. When two pieces were in the same square they would combat with a cool battle animation.

    BattleChess II:Chinese Chess?

    @Topic: I have a USB hub with 6 ports, a built in SD card reader ~and a built in stylus [!?]. The stylus lights up when in its cradle; and has two buttons and a plastic nib. When either of these is pressed, it emits an electrical buzzing sound. I have no idea what this thing is, does anyone recognize it?

    No sorry it wasn't the Chinese variant. It was fantasy based. Perhaps it wasn't TSR then for some reason even though I remember that fact though. Hmm this is going to bug me.


    Update: the game I was thinking of was Dark Legions by SSI !!

    How about an anime movie I saw in the early 90s about asian military on a rocky desert planet (Mars I think?). They rode on futuristic 1 wheel motorcycles. There may have been a tank, and a anime typical American woman (blonde bimbo), it's the combat motor-unicycles I remember most.

    Venus Wars, I think.

    Extremely late 80s/early 90s anime.

    That looks like it! Thank you! It bugged me for decades lol.
    I have one other thing bugging me for decades, a post apocalyptic movie that starts out with a grey haired old man and teenaged son, the son has to go out into the wasteland for something, and gets on a motorcycle with a dk sticker (Dead Kennedys punk band if that means anything to you) on the back, puts on a helmet made from a animal skull and rides off. He runs into other people and helps them I think. It was live action not animated. Love those wasteland type movies, but can't remember this one.

    There was this cartoon, maybe a movie or a show, I think it looked like Beavis and Butthead. It was about some guy, like, saving his girlfriend from aliens or something, he had a huge sheet of metal stabbing him through the face and at one point he even uses it as a weapon.
