    Default Speaking of games ..........

    For those who like the old PC games, there is a website called Good Old Games (.com of course) that has a whole slew of old PC games that have been revamped for Windows. I downloaded Panzer General II last night (took about three minutes to set up an account and get the download) and ended up playing it until midnight (silly me!). Very, very inexpensive and once you set up your account, you get four or five free games as well. If you have an old favorite that you wish they still made, it just might be on there.

    Heh ... I don't know. Most games are $6.00 to download. Just heard about this yesterday from #2 son. I haven't browsed the entire catlogue yet. They do have the entire Ultima series (1 - 7), lots of strategy and flight sims ( Red Baron etc.) plus a host of others that I just never played.

    I'll take a look.
    On a side note there are some old Nintendo emulators out there for PC. I downloaded one and got my hands on Tecmo Bowl. Bo Jackson for the win!!

    Nice thing about this is the games have been "modernized" to run on Windows platforms (including XP/Vista/7 and so forth). Played PzGen II on my new laptop with zero problems and no emulator etc.
