It isn't even just older games, I have had this very problem with many indie titles. Granted I run dual monitors, but I am really tired of indie titles that don't play well with common video settings.


Ya this is prolly like some kind of first world nerd problem. But damn it game resolutions leave my window sizes alone! Like you said it is like some games just have to launch at 800*600 as the default.

So I just spent an hour playing Ship Simulator Extreme!

On the first mission... about 45 minutes of that was me sailing back to port... because I forgot to anchor my ship... so it floated miles into the ocean... while i was on my speedboat stopping polluters... green peace... yah...

also, cheapy's inbox is blowin' up right now, i'd guess.

On that note, everyone should hassle Steam to offer Corridor 7. When most people were playing Doom, I was stuck with Corridor 7. I was pretty young back then so those floating eyes were pretty scary. Apparently its set in 2012, pretty sure the game was accurate with its prediction.


Yes! I loved Corridor 7. The eyeballs were scary but what really freaked me out was the giant robot guy with the minigun. And you could hear his heavy footsteps slowly approaching in the distance. But yeah, for whatever reason I liked C-7 and Wolf3D a lot more than the Doom-engine games.

Who, if anyone, owns the rights? It looks like every company associated with the game is long out of business.

At this point, probably some homeless former developer who is now living under a bridge with a house made of old floppies.

I have this image of some old guy just drinking alone in a bar and talking to some young kid about how back in his day he once created this game called Corridor 7 but then this Cormack fella came a long and ruined all his dreams.

The Doom engine included command line tags to show the view to the left or to the right as you play the game rather than straight ahead. The reason for this was so an individual with access to three networked machines could arrange the monitors to give a peripheral view. I have always wanted to try this.

Been considering picking up a pack. I have all the Dooms on Steam, and I have Quakes 1-3 on disc (though I think I lack the add-ons?). Don't have the Wolfensteins and don't have Keen. But... I think I'm passing. Tempting as it is to throw a few bucks at something to retro up my Steam library, I don't see myself playing any of these before the next Quakecon at least.

I sent him countless emails for months on end to no avail. In the end, I had to send him a $20 steam wallet code for him to change it.

Jokes- though it did take a few emails over a couple of months.

Just an FYI:

I decided to pick up Book of Unwritten Tales the other day. I've played it for a couple hours so far, so I can't really give a fair review. I will say that I'm really enjoying it. The production value is really good IMO. I am especially enjoying the voice acting so far, as well as the visuals.

Will report back as I progress further, but as of now, I'm pleased with the purchase.

Great, I'd like to hear what you have to say, though I'll probably be purchasing it in the near future anyway.

Looks like the indie gala store is finally up. 1000 points = $1. Finally have a use for my 12500 points! Oh wait! After reading the FAQ, apparently you can only use a certain amounts of points per item. Only enough for like a 20% discount.

Here's a gem!

This weekend I got no steam gaming in, but I did discover Final Fantasy I for ios, and I've already racked up almost ten hours, mostly while sitting around waiting to go up at mics. I'm kinda surprised at how much I'm liking it, and how much further I've gotten than I ever did on the NES.

Maybe it wouldn't be as much fun today on the TV if it were my main activity, but the simpler era gameplay + using it to get through awful stand-up comedy or even just sitting around at a restaurant tonight while someone was telling a long boring story has been great!

They might be putting all name changes on hold as there is a thread in the Site Assistance sub-forum where John mention users will be able to change their own name on the new forum. Here is the link: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=325833

I played the remake on PSP, and it was a much more pleasant experience than the original or even the PSX version. Same with FF2.
