Cool, Tanglewood is supposed to be really good.

Yes.  It finally arrived.  I had a box I did not know where it was from and when I opened it, there was the Tanglewood box!  :)

Trek MD. is Tanglewood good enough to pay for physical copy?

I literally got it yesterday and I've yet to play it.  Haven't had a chance yet.  I plan to test it this weekend.

Got my Tanglewood in yesterday. Saw the Big Evil Corp logo on the box and was delighted.
Been playing on Steam occasionally with the free key they sent out mid August but not near enough time spent on this gem.
Just glad it's here!
Had this # sealing it. I haven't opened it yet as I'm not sure where my Genesis is at but will soon enough.


The other pic wouldn't upload to PB so attaching it.

Crumbled and bought the atari classics thing for the switch. Played it for a few hours yesterday.

I am curious to know why Battlezone is missing. (And possibly others ive not noticed yet :) )

For that matter why isnt Space Invaders for the 2600 on there :(

(Im really going to have to get some kind of retro pie nonsense sorted out :) )

Nothing physical to show but I recently bought Heroes of Might and Magic 1-4 and also Tender Loving Care on GOG.

Having never played any Might and Magic games before, these have taken some trial and error to figure out what I'm doing.

That's cool.  Are you enjoying the games despite the trial and error?

GOG tells me I've almost played it for 6 hours already, so I must be  :D.

Many early attempts I couldn't even defeat a single enemy.  Now I have an easy game going where I have an idea of what I'm doing and managing to keep a strong army for now.

I have my eye on some more old games, maybe you've heard of them and have any thoughts on what they are like?

Dragon Wars
Drakkhen
Realms of Arkania 1 & 2
Ultima Underworld 1 & 2
Forgotten Realms - The Archives (this is a D&D game, here's the link https://www.gog.com/game/forgotten_realms_the_archives_collection_one)
