Haven't people that own the NES version of Maniac Mansion been downloading roms to run it on ScummVm? Is this any different?

I think I need a clarification on rule 0.

I'm still semi-confused about the subject. Let's say I purchased the mac version of MI, but because the floppies aren't formatted for windows, I have no way of putting the files on my computer. Is it then acceptable to download the mac files via internet as long as it's the exact version I purchased?

I asked because I just purchased the Kixx release of Last Crusade for Amiga for only $3.00 and I was wondering why it was so inexpensive. I thought maybe I had gotten lucky. I'm not disappointed, though. The only reason I bought it was for the Grail diary, which appears to be the original version (n...

Does that mean that they were cheaper when initially released? Is it kind of like a "greatest hits" release?

What is Kixx XL?

I never understood why this edition of games is always cheaper on ebay.

My mistake. It translates to over $800 USD, which is still crazy. Ebay and Amazon are always hit or miss (most of the time miss). It's like these people have no souls.

Unfortunately, I haven't been so lucky. I snagged both the archives and the classics collection on ebay for $80 each (okay $60 for the classics, but still pretty expensive). That's the lowest I've seen them, the price seems to go up rapidly. It's not just these, though. When sellers discover that th...

I don't think so, but I know some of them used the World Builder Engine

Wow, nevermind. I just pulled this game back out from storage and for some reason I remembered it being a lot better game than it really is. It's actually kind of boring.The graphics are nice, though.

Well, the 3.5 USB was introduced a year ago, I think, and since then, people all over the web have been moping that there isn't one released for the 5.25. It would make hunting old games down so much easier; I wouldn't have to worry what floppy format it was in

It's halfway tempting to have a look into making the drives though because while there's a limited market there's nothing really stopping someone from making them to order. If I had the money, experience, time, and resources, it's deffinately something I would look into. If only one company made su...

Purchasing Compilations?

I purchased all three of the LucasArts compilations for a quicker and cheaper way to get my hands on almost all of the LucasArts games. Now, part of me regrets the decision, mainly because I don't get some of the awesome cover art. What's everyone else's opinion? I'm trying to debate whether or not ...
