  3. You got it @RadioPoultry! Wing Commander III is an excellent space sim that used FMV to great effect! It has a star studded cast, including Mark Hamill, Malcolm Mcdowell, John Rhys-Davies and Tom Wilson ("Biff" from Back to the Future) as Maniac. The main ship is the TCS Victory. On PC, 3DO and Playstation. True story: I made up my mind to get a Saturn over Playstation at least in part because print ads for Wing Commander III had it coming to both platforms. All things being equal, I liked Sega's original exclusive content better than Sony's and figured most third party games would hit both. That version never happened. 🕹️😂

  5. @nosweargamer, you've got it! And I happen to love Blue Lightning on the Jaguar CD so there was only one possible answer! 🕹️🙌😂
  6. Platform: Lynx and Evercade A great game on Lynx And Evercade, if preferred The Jag update stinks
  7. Well done @RickR! From the first haiku: MC3D - particularly the 3D mode - is famous for its JJ Abrams like lens flare. The game has a mix of enemies, including alien ships and a dragon. The game was programmed for use with the cancelled Virtuality headset, JaguarVR. From the hint haiku: A core component of Missile Command is defending cities. Of the Atari Corps era updates for Jaguar, it was one that wasn't done by Minter. And 3D glasses FTW! It's one of my favorites on the Jaguar and my favorite version of Missile Command.
  8. You're both on the right track.... The 🗝️ is "without an ox"...
  9. Here's a hint, also in haiku: Something to defend. An update without an ox. Red and blue glasses.
  10. Nope, it's not AVP either. What an awesome Xmas gift though! A lot of gems in the rough - and some just rough - but most well worth playing!
  11. @Gianna - It's not Protector but I think you should get a point for referencing a post-JTS release from Songbird. 🙌🙌🕹️

  13. R.I.P. Fry's Electronics. 

    Fry's closed all locations on Wednesday with no forewarning. It was one of the last places I could still buy electronics components in-person. Need a 7805 regulator for that ailing 2600? How about a few resistors for that AV mod? Replacements for a leaky cap? They had me covered without the wait of an online order. 

    It was a quirky, hodgepodge type store with a lot of "As seen on TV" products along side computer, electronics and stereo equipment. It shall be missed.

      I agree.  I'm going to miss them. 

      There's a lot of hate on-line about Fry's that I don't quite get.  A lot of people lost jobs.  And I'm really going to miss being able to go and actually see and touch the items I need.  Sometimes, you need that ability to help decide how to solve a particular problem. 

      Fry's.  R.I.P.  You will be missed.

      One of the only stores I would just go to just to browse/walk around.   

      Each store, perhaps a bit outdated, had a decore and even store exterior around a theme with my favorites being the Aztec and ancient Egypt.  For example in the Egypt theme store had some computer display desks where supported by large black ancient cats rather than desk legs and hieroglyphics on the walls.

      Will also miss going there to find cables that other stores don't stock in store.

      For the year prior the pandemic could tell it was going down hill fast as the shelves were half empty and with poor online solution could tell they were not going to make it long when the pandemic hit.

  14. Nice one. I will let someone else go but it ain't Kasumi Ninja!
