Cold Games Database 1.2

Changes: games list is now shown in a grid, more control over directly sorting and filtering the list performance on nVidia Optimus based systems should be better (was noticable when filtering the list) ClickOnce Installer (needs Internet connection during installation, “Check for Update” option in “?” menu active) Portable Version (just extract to any directory and…

Games I played in 2016 – Looking Back

Note: List probably incomplete as I have not kept close track of all the games I played over the year. There is no particular order to the list Final Fantasy 15 Completed the main story, took around 55 hours (took some time in sidequests and the like, can be done faster). Mostly liked it, some…

Looking back at comics – Transformers “Generation 1” US #4

Original release date: December 4th, 1984 This issue was the second part of the first comic that I read back in the day (the Hungarian comics bundled 2 issues in one) Cover Titled “The Autobots’ Last Stand!”, the cover image does a good job putting that into picture. A few Autobots (Optimus Prime, Huffer, Bluestreak…

Revisiting Babylon 5 – 1×04 Infection

Thoughts on the episode Another rather character-centric episode, this time with Dr. Franklin being a focus, but also some more characterisation for Sinclair. There are a few details that are relevant for the overarching plot. During the episode, an ISN reporter is on the station because of a scheduled interview with Commander Sinclair, which he…

Revisiting Babylon 5 – 1×03 Born to the Purple

Thoughts on the episode There is hardly anything directly relating to the overarching plot in this episode, it is mainly used for character building (which is not a bad thing, well done and rounded characters are an important foundation for a fictional world and fleshing them out needs dedicated time).

Revisiting Babylon 5 – 1×02 Soul Hunter

Thoughts on the episode This episode is relatively self-contained, but there are some things that relate to the bigger story arc. The Soul Hunters are introduced in this episode, though it is also the only episode they make an appearance in (except for the television movie “The River of Souls”). They are mainly used to…

Revisiting Babylon 5 – 1×01 Midnight on the Firing Line

Preface As the series has been around long enough, simple recaps of episodes are readily available on many places (among others Wikipedia). I will try to keep the articles to analysis of the content of the episode, events during the episode and how they may relate to future events (so Spoiler Warning if you still…

Looking back at comics – Transformers “Generation 1” US #3

  Original release date: October 2nd, 1984 Back in ’91, this was the first issue of the US comic series I ever read, when it got released in Hungary. Cover Looking back, this is one of the more bizarre covers, with Spiderman swinging around Megatron, in the process of wrapping him up in his web-strings,…

My Gaming History (Part 3) – The New OS

(Man, it’s been awhile since the last post, hasn’t it?…. whoops) To recap, end of ’94 I got my first PC, thanks to magazines and collection CDs the small amount of games my budget could afford did still result in a nice list. Experimentation also included installing a Windows 3.11 driver that made the PC…
