Another day, another fine post by the Elderly. Keep it up.

gnome said...

ok. That was amazing. Can't believe you actually wrote such a post so fast. Brilliant!

The Elderly said...

Thank you both for such kind words. I admit it was alot more fun than the normal chart chasing I produce.

Gnomey thanks for putting me on to it, and I truly appreciate the encouragement Ross.

DEITRIX said...

This would be interesting to play... Dated, but for 20 smacks it might be worth the adventure? Have any of you played it yourself..?

gnome said...

Only briefly....
At last. Yuriy porn-spammed us.

DEITRIX said...

Indeed, atleast they were so nice to invite us to there dinner of free porn....

Sorry Yuriy, but I just cant afford your Absolutely FREE porn.
Thanks anyway.
Best Regards, DEITRIX

I go missing for a day, blogger disintegrates and I get porn spammed. Thankfully Mr.Gnome's wish was granted (if only briefly) and Deitrix unveiled the dubious absoluteness of it all.

The place was in safe hands

The Elderly said...

no i've never played it, but I have a passing suspicion, a certain woodland creature may have.

I love this game. When I beat it on Sega CD my freshman year of college I remember how my meathead football player roomies were in awe... atleast for a day or two. QUESTION: Elderly, I keep hearing about this being available on dvd but cant find it ANYWHERE. Help, want to relive being 18 again, I LOVE THIS GAME
