    I've never played Wasteland but since i joined here i've heard a lot about it. I havn't seen it in any of the games shops around where i live. Do you know where i could find a copy or possibly down load it?

    Thanks

    Remember guys, we don't distribute pirate warez here. So please don't talk about it. We could get in trouble for it..

    Sorry to be a party pooper, but that's how it is..

    You forgot Sonic Spinall, sport.

    Well my favourite childhood games? Let me think a second...

    -Phantasy Star IV: End of the Millenium
    -Final Fantasy III
    -Final Fantasy II
    -Earthworm Jim 1 & 2
    -Mortal Kombat 1 & 2
    -Sonic 1, 2, 3 (Knuckles was ghey)
    -Legend of Zelda
    -Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    -Street Fighter 2: Turbo (SNES)
    -Ogrebattle
    -Ninja Gaiden
    -Megaman 1, 2, 3


    I could go on, but those are the first games I thought of. I think I spent the most time on the RPG's mentioned (mainly PSIV... what a good game).

    Sometimes I get nostalgic and load up my emulators to play some of these old games... ah well.

    wasteland is abandonware, so it's (almost) legal to distribute it.

    so, if anybody wants Wasteland, let me know and i will mail it to you. the game is fairly small in size. i currently have C64 version, so you'll need some kind of emulator to play it. i have a PC version (with slightly better graphics) somewhere, but i have no idea where :P

    I wish Wasteland was true abandonware, but actually it isn´t. EA still has the rights to Wasteland and asked a few sites to remove it.
    Having said that, trying the game is allways a good idea ;)

    I did buy wasteland again a couple of years ago on the INterplay 10th anniversary compilation.
    Basicaly all their good games before they sold out, back then they would put the emphasis on the game not on the graphics.

    That, my furry friend, is from the classic arcade game named "Metal Slug". I used to play that for hours with a couple of friends while our parents would be in the bar drinking... You can get the "updated" version on Plastation format called "Metal Slug X". Check it out sometime...

    Heh, did you catch the parody game of metal slug over at Newgrounds? The main character goes crazy and decides to go on a killing spree in the metal slug (tank).

    To be honest, I had no idea where my avatar came from. I stole it from www.ar15.com.

    You can check out some more about Metal Slug at this site. Gosh, that brings back the memories...

    On second thought, this should have been on my list earlier, but like I said I had just had a long trip...
