Party like it's 1995

I just spent far too long already playing my favorite game of yore, or at least its fantastic remake, Wing Commander: Privateer Remake. Many a night and day were surrendered to making the original run on my 386 with my funky Covox sound hardware. (Mmm, 8 bit μ-law!) I was really glad there were no actual human characters worth anything. It made it really easy to just ignore and shoot spaceships strategically. One day I'll have to learn how to edit the save files for the remake, too, just to relive the cheating I loved.
