Unfortunately life is getting real busy in my other job, and I'm taking on two rather large (unpaid...) roles - the first of which begins June 1st as I train to be a trainer, and the second begins September 1st when I shall become a governor for one of the top 20 schools in the country. Also health has not been fantastic. As such, Thursday 26th May is the last day I'll be publishing a review for a while (I'll possibly get back to it Q4 this year - October in layman's terms). NWIG articles will be up weekly as usual - can't keep myself away, and I might take the reigns on doing some proper PR which we have been lacking of late.

So, Shadwen's review goes up this Thursday and I've got nothing scheduled for next week. I wanted to put it to the forum, see what you guys would like to see. Anything preposterous is most welcome, whether it's as old as Zork or just something broken, if it garners enough of a following I'll see it done on Thursday next week. Make your recommendations and I'll see what I can do. It's for a bit of fun, so don't expect something too critique-y. Hell, it doesn't even have to be a PC game.

Thread closes this Thursday at 23:59PM.

@RCoon I want to thank you for your dedication, you made a reality what a handful of us failed to do almost 10 years ago with GPU! (GamePowerUP!). Your efforts and dedication are greatly appreciated and really, review whatever the hell you want...find something that you find truly fun and review the shit out of it! :D

Dieing to see "your mom" reviewed.
At this rate that might actually happen. Hopefully more votes come in the next three days.

For what it's worth, I will totally review my mom if that's what wins...

@RCoon I think you should do another horror game for your big finale! I know how much you enjoyed the last horror game :laugh:

But thank you for your hard work on the game reviews and videos on upcoming gaming news. You've done a great job, and we look forward to your further gaming videos and PR endeavors! :respect:

Diablo. The first one(not Diablo: Hellfire). Because it's an all-time classic, and I loved it.

Ye do some metal gear 1 and 2 for the sake of history lol.

For MGS1 i suggest using Radeon 8500(lulz), the last thing that supported 8 bit palletized textures, so the dialog boxes look fine. Or use emulation, that actually looks even better.

I wanted to vote something broken, but the most abysmally awful game I ever played is so bad, it's not in digital distribution. You must buy them from stacks of dusty boxes sold by a guy on e-bay and install the physical edition of this Russian shooter. The game? Instinct.


Said dusty boxes: :laugh::laugh:


If you really want to consider a mostly broken game that is also just awful, it costs a mere $4.94 on e-bay. I'll gladly PM you the link if you can't find it.

However, knowing that's not going to happen, I voted for something old. I just need to decide exactly what.

Congratulations on the appointment!! I hope you'll still be sticking around TPU? I truly appreciate all the hard work you have given on these reviews. It has enriched our community a great deal.
