(Re) Building a Windows 98 Pentium III PC

Greetings and welcome to an LGR restoration, repair kind of thing. This is not a very pretty computer. It never has been, that’s never been the point of it, heh. This is just my go-to Windows 98 capture PC, as I’ve referred to it over the years, that I’ve had ever since I started LGR. Before that even, in fact I still have my receipt from when I bought it January 30th, 2009 for $10 at a local Goodwill store.

LGR – Freakin’ Funky Fuzzballs – DOS PC Game Review

[LGR Theme plays] [fizz, sip] Aahhh! [typing] Freakin’ Funky Fuzzballs! Wow, there’s a game with the word “freakin” in the title. When I saw this recently, I absolutely had to own it, so I grabbed it for a couple of bucks on eBay. Just look at this cover art. I have no idea what that is chasing him, but I tell you, that fuzzball strikes me as nothing other than freakin’ funky without a doubt. And come to find out

LGR – Santa Claus in Trouble – PC Game Review

[electronic version of “Little Drummer Boy”] [fizz, sip] Aahhh! [typing] The more I think about it, the less I’m sure what it is about Christmas time that pressures game developers to make more games about it than any other holiday. You’d just think they’d want to cash in on the rampant consumerism and commercially manufactured holiday spirit, but if that were the only reason, then games like THIS wouldn’t exist. Santa Claus in Trouble, developed by Joy Mania Development and

LGR – Ikari Warriors – PC Booter Game Review

[MIDI music plays] [typing] Back in the 1980s, one of the most common types of game to see for personal computers was the arcade port. Sometimes they were awesome. Sometimes they were aw-FUL. And sometimes they were Ikari Warriors, the arcade game by SNK released in 1987 by Data East USA and ported by Elite Systems, Ltd. The box is pretty typical stuff for back then, promising arcade realism at home, and shoving in your face the idea that the

LGR – Dem Bonz – DOS PC Game Review

Greetings! And welcome to LGR Quickies: Reinvigorated. And, yes, this is a series that I attempted to do several years ago. And you may or may not remember it.

LGR – Santa Balls – PC Game Review

[electronic “Little Drummer Boy” plays] [fizz, sip] Aahhh! [typing] Christmastime always gets me feeling nostalgic and lately I’ve been remembering a time when free-to-play games were actually free. All you did was go to some website, click on a title and you got a simple little time-waster made in Shockwave or Flash, with no timers, microtransactions, or arbitrary gameplay limits. Maybe you got a couple of banner ads or referral links, but that was about it. A free-to-play game actually

[intro music] [typing] You know what never gets old? Sean Connery. Holy crap, that Holy Grail actually worked. Know what else never gets old? Puzzles. Man, puzzles. Man, they’re so puzzling… and manly. Nothing like solving a good puzzle to put you in the mood to… solve more puzzles. And not many games puzzle me more than The Incredible Machine, developed by Jeff Tunnell Productions and Dynamix and published by Sierra in 1993 for MS-DOS PCs. “Incredible!” No crap. That’s
