elite, elite, elite.



we used to play with our plastic guns runnng around the house like nutters, out into the garden being attacked by aliens, steal all the cargo, then hop into the ****pit (games room) wth elite loaded and fly out into the blackness of space with tons of slaves and narcotics :P

that game was amazing (electron 32k)

i also loved repton (boulderdash) and flght sims (f-15 strike eagle II on the amiga was amazing for its time)

Not really that old, but I would love to to see Rune on the UE3.0, nothing like chopping your mates arm off and beating to death with it in MP :p
