Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I was searching through my old Stack of EGMs last night, for no apparent reason, when I stumbled on the December 1998 issue. Man, that is a glorius issue, containing previews for Ocarina Of Time, and a bunch of features on this new-fangled Dreamcast thing, that's gonna change the face of gaming. It features the reviews of Metal Gear Solid for the PSX, Xenogears, and the original Pokemon (if we only knew), among many others. The big news is Nintendo bringing over the 4-MB pack for 'hi-res' visuals in games like the upcoming Rogue Squadron and Turok 2. While reading, it was like I was magically transported back to that time, experiencing the anticipation all over again.
So, in this thread, we reminisce about the times we were waiting with baited breath. Where were you when you first heard news about a 3D Mario in the works (OMG!!!1!) or that Microsoft was planning on entering the console business (Pishaw! No way they'll ever survive!)?
e: Yes, that's what I was doing. Leaving you in suspense. I am brilliant.
