    Anyone Else Play Old Games?

    It comes about once every six months.

    Master of Orion 2 mania.

    I have uninstalled the game from my 'puter maybe four times, but still end up installing it again and playing a furious 5-6 hour game.

    However earlier tonight I tried to do this again only to discover the disk no longer works !!! :O

    Anybody know where I could download it? Being a prehistoric game it should be available for free by now.


    I never even tried MoO3, having heard it was a complete flop.

    Playing Fallout currently... I also play Civilization 2 on about the same schedule, every six months.

    I'm pretty sure there are still corporate rights for MoO2, but MoO is abandonware.

    Find it here

    By the way: Nice game. I was addicted to it some time ago. Now it's Natural Selection. Half Life mod. You should try this, too.

    Never heard of this MoR series, I presume it is some space stratagy game like "Elite" maybe but I am intrgued and am downloading MoR2, thanks Blutwölfin. I still occasionally play the Civs, all three of them. I can't recomend it though, the Civ series is dangerously addictive and should only be approached with the utmost caution and the full understanding that you may never look at a computer the same way again...

    Did anyone ever play this game:


    Canon Fodder 2.

    It can be downloaded here:
    http://www.abandonia.com/games/80/CannonFodder2.htm

    I have a particular reason to remember this game and I would consider it cool if anyone played it, 6 degrees of separation and all that. (winking mysteriously)

    By far the best races in MoO2 are the Psilons, because for each technological advancement other races discover, they discover three; and the Silicoids, because they are "lithovores", i.e. they eat friggin' rocks. You don't even have to exterminate the native populations of the planets you conquer, because they quickly die on their own, not being able to handle the Silicoid diet. :

    Avoid the Darlocks, Bulrathis and Mrrshans at first.

    I played the first instalment of Cannon Fodder to death as well.
    One christmas I got Cannon fodder and Dune 2 and spent the entire holidays alternating between them, ah.. simpler times.

    But did anyone play CF2 I know it was a much less widely distributed game..
