Jedi Academy: Yes!

I just saw on the Transgaming forums that someone managed to get Jedi Academy installed and running using WineX. A quick perusal of the Gone Gold forums just happens to show Jedi Academy on sale at Best Buy next week for $39. Gee, and I just happen to be going through Green Bay on Monday. What remarkable coincidences!

Arr! ToEE Impressions

Thanks to Atari and Kazaa I was able to acquire the 6-hour time-limited version of Temple of Elemental Evil this afternoon. I installed it and took a quick spin through the tutorial, which lasts about 15 minutes and gets you into some of the gameplay mechanics.

The game runs very nicely at 1024x768 on my old clunker (800 MHz Athlon, 256 MB RAM, GeForce 3). Graphics are very pretty, though somewhat dark (it is a dungeon, after all). I won't comment on audio, since music is missing from this version. Mouse movement is kind of slow: moving the cursor across the screen takes more mouse movement than it should, but when you're actually playing you don't make such large sweeping movements with the cursor. Tonight I'll start on the game itself and see how I like it. If the tutorial is any indication, I can see that I'm going to have a tough time waiting for a good sale before buying this one.

Ahoy Mateys!

Shiver me timbers, it's Talk Like a Pirate Day! Avast, check out User Friendly's take on the bilge rats at Verisign. Arr, I'm off to get me some grog!

The Master comments: You, sir, need to get whatever that was fixed. Or something :-)

A.T. Hun comments: Pieces of eight! Where's Lake Pahoe?

The Master comments: AAAAAAaaaarrrrr ... (woops)


Boomtown is reporting information from a "highly reliable source" that Unreal Tournament 2004 might be available on DVD-ROM in a limited fashion. I think that would awesome, since I have a DVD-ROM drive. No CD swapping would be A Good Thing. Thanks Shacknews.
