Week in Geek

This week's theme was retro-gaming. I commented to some friends that I was amused that the first thing I did after getting a blazing-fast new PC was to install the oldest games I could find on it. Command and Conquer, C&C Red Alert, and C&C Tiberian Sun won't run, even in the XP Virtual Machine - might be out of luck on those. But I did lose many hours to Age of Empires 1 and 2.

I also signed up at Steam to take advantage of a weekend sale - all five X-Com games for a whopping $2.

Not to be outdone, City of Heroes has started to claim more of my time again - though with the advent of Star Trek Online this week, that may change.

On an entirely different retro-gaming front, I may have agreed to participate in a first-edition AD&D game. I'm not sure, I may have blacked out.
