Half-Life 2

After too many failed attempts to buy Half-Life 2 Silver via that Steam thing, I decided to just buy the regular DVD version in the store last thursday. Which installed fine, yay!

I'm playing it on Hard to make sure I don't breeze through it too quickly, which seems to be working: I'm already going to have to go back to an earlier saved game because I won't be getting past those manhacks with no ammo + 15% health. An opportunity to enjoy the amazing scenery some more.

A Neko kitty collection - download the original Windows version of Neko from 1991 (zipped .exe). I was always very fond of this early combination of cutesy pixel art and user mouse movement interaction, no doubt at some level an inspiration for many an iambald-number.

The first thing that crossed my mind when trying it today was that I must surely have enough photos of cats in various poses to make a photographic dhtml version of it. :)

Opening screen of a classic 3D game, 1988:
Dark Side, the game

I remember playing Dark Side on our first PC, a 4.77 MHz CGA XT. Was particularly impressed by a (probably very low-poly) modeling of the Egyptian Sphinx at the time. Some more info here.

And via David Chess: a brief game of text-based Tic Tac Toe (part of an interactive story(?) called The Forked Stick). - The Perilous Voyage - a sort of Golden Age version of Paratrooper (remember Paratrooper? 1990 or so, CGA graphics, lots of fun...)

Update: found a review and screenshots of Paratrooper - it's actually from 1982! You can even download the game (bottom of review) - works surprisingly well, pc-speaker music and everything.
