    As well as bringing Earthworm Jim, Clayfighter and Stonekeep to WiiWare, Interplay have just announced plans to bring the classic PC title Descent to the service!

    Fall 2010 seems too far away now. I find it odd that they are spending a lot of time bringing stuff to WiiWare and DSiWare and not PSN/XBLA but whatever, keep them coming....MDK3 please.

    Maybe for you but I could control it with a joystick extremely well.

    I guess I'm more "core" than you.

    Let's hope they decide to port Freespace and Freespace 2, too.

    I should've known it'd be you that posted this. [​IMG]

    I barely do anything with the Wii, but good news anyway.

    Many Ataris and Commodores (C16, PET, C64 & variants like 128, cartridge only etc, Amiga and the variants). As well as BBC Micro, most Sinclairs, Dragon 32 and others.

    One day I'll gather them all for a nice photo.

    Hadrian is as hardcore as it gets, boy! [​IMG]

    Yay, I'd love a nice nostalgia/collection pic, Hadrian [​IMG] Especially of that sexay A4000T (I WANT ONEEEEE [​IMG])!

    As for Descent... awesome, it's great seeing so many classics remade.

    I have an old steering wheel that has pitch controls, man it was such a royal pain in the ass to get good at but it was hella fun. I had Descent 2 for my computer back in the day, with the steering wheel you had to push it in or pull it out to get it to pitch up and down, forward and reverse were done with a throttle control, tilting left and right was done with the turning of the wheel. It was a really good game, very hard though, especially those bastardly Spawns which were fast and had lots of armor but dropped a boat load of stuff.
