Reminds my somehow of Prypiat / Chernobyl. Must be one of the creepiest places on earth. Nowadays it's actually accessible to tourists under the guidance of an specialist who knows where to avoid the radiation. I think I might visit this place once.

It's still incredible how many ghost towns actually exist out there, especially in exotic places. Here are some to speak of.

Interesting links Priest and Murikov. These eerie deserted cities and other places are fascinating. Pripyat has interested me too for quite a while especially since I'm a big fan of the STALKER games. I'm thinking of making a trip to Hashima in the future if possible since there are now boat trips to the island.

Changing the subject a bit but I find it interesting to look at photos of North Korea since it's such a closed society. You can't help but feel sorry for people living there though under such an oppressive regime.

Yesterday night I checked up the second link and looked through the pictures. I surely went through hundreds of pics, but I'm still not finished with the huge gallery. That French guy must have been lucky to make such an amount of rare photos.

And as for S.T.A.L.K.E.R., I hope you know for sure that GSC Game World is developing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 (also for consoles)? I can't wait for it! Grin According their site, the game will be released in 2012.

Another title I'm wating for (almost that impatiently like for KoFXIII) is Metro Last Light, the sequel of Metro 2033. If you loved S.T.A.L.K.E.R., you'll like this one too, although the gameplay is more linear. Somehow I have the feeling that Russian / Ukranian games always get better and better!

i am sad and i am a bit addicted to the quiz machines you get in pubs. Quite often you get questions about video games. today i had 'Which of these is a Capcorn game?'

Magic Tiger, Magic Sword or Magic Merlin.

Capcorn???

I'm also very excited about the next STALKER game Murikov. Grin Great that there will be a console version too so more people can experience STALKER. Although I love Call of Pripyat and consider it the best game in the series I do hope they make the game map a bit larger this time.

Metro 2033 definitely looks like my kind of fps. Looks really good. Seems like it has quite a scary atmosphere. I'll definitely pick this one up at some point. Speaking of Ukrainian FPS games I really want to check out White Gold the sequel to the excellent Boiling Point. I love how these games give you so much freedom to explore a huge map.

That's very important general knowledge RiKo good to hear you got the question right! I like the sound of this Magic Merlin game I think that could be a hit for 'Capcorn'.

I thought some of you might be interested to know, if you didn't already, that shoot 'em up developer Cave has launched it's very first Facebook game: 'Derby Classics' a horse racing /betting game! I've always avoided playing any Facebook games up to now but since this was developed by Cave I had to give it a go.

You can bet on races to increase your money and also have your own horse to look after and train. Every so often your horse gets invited to take part in a race. I thought the game was pretty fun actually. You can feed your horse apples, carrots and grass and also train it in various ways to boost stats.

HAVEN'T FREQUENTED...
this thread in sometime.

That card Anselm posted is classic btw! Also, that White Gold game Merlin posted looks pretty interesting, if not a tad generic. If the game is GOOD though, that's all that matters.

Anywhooo...

I was just having a wee scan of eBay, looking at the prices things command nowadays (that I own!) and I came across this... beauty!

http://www.ebay.c...2565c7b087

WHY...
is this a 'beauty' you ask? because I have never before EVER seen anyone take the initiative of SCANNING their eBay items into their computer before. At least, it's a first for me in the near decade I've used eBay! Grin

Just wanted to mention a few things and this seemed like a good place to do it.

Firstly for anyone who was wondering what happened to one of our active members Bojan, he hasn't had internet access for around 6 months because his PC broke down. He's trying to get it fixed and hopefully will be back with us soon.

The next GOTW will be my last one. Reelmojo kindly offered to do it every week until Eccentric Cat is able to start again. I'm sure he'll make a good job of it.

From the 30th August I'll be taking a break from the site for 2 months to do some travelling. I'll try and log on occasionally but I won't be in chat on Sundays.

YEAH, I DID WONDER...
about Bojan actually. Glad to here that he's ok though Smile

Looking forward to seeing Mojo's GOTW's then. I think he is more than a perfect candidate for the job Wink

SO, WHAT'S THIS...
about traveling and stuff? You headed abroad... land of the rising sun and stuff? Grin

Thanks for the kind words, Ninja. I'm looking forward to taking over GOTW. I've been wanting the feature to come back for a while now so I finally just volunteered my services for it.

And I feel I should post some random info here since I don't know if I've ever even posted in this thread!

In 1995 Taito was working on an update to their classic game Qix that featured a 2 player versus mode called Twin Qix. The game was mostly finished before being cancelled, and the rom is readily available and fully playable in MAME. It appears if the game was finished that the one player mode would have had AI to play against like so many arcade puzzle games of the time (including Taito's own Puzzle Bobble), but the lack of AI makes the single player just a variation of the original Qix. I've yet to play it in multiplayer yet, but it seems like it would be a lot of fun, assuming both players are of somewhat equal skill level.

Arcade History - Twin Qix

It's obscure enough that I can't even find a video of the game on YouTube. Or... maybe not everyone loves Qix as much as I do!

Again thanks for your contribution, Merlin! I'm glad to hear that GotW under management of reelmojo will go on like in good ol' times and that old timer Bojan is ok too. Sadly you never know what can happen these days when active members don't show up anymore.

Have some nice travelling anyway, I'm sure these 2 months will be worth while. Thumbs Up

I USED TO HAVE...
Qix on the original Gameboy as a kid, but never really paid it any real attention to it.

I was however completely obsessed with Erix on the Ericcson T68 - one of the first full colur screen mobile phones here in the UK.

EDIT: had a look for the game (Erix), but it has been lost in history it would seem Roll Eyes

Thanks Priest, Murikov and Ninja. Yes it was good to hear that Bojan is doing ok and will be coming back to NGFL. I'm pretty excited about my trip although feeling quite nervous too. Yes Ninja I'm going to be travelling in Japan for 2 months. Planning to visit many different parts of the country and just like last time I'll be checking out a lot of arcades in the evenings. I'll be sure to post a bit about my experiences when I get back.

Thanks 2D and Angela. Smile I hope you both make a trip to Japan one day too. It is an incredible place to visit. I think everyone should go there at least once if they're able to.

The stuff is amazing ! Being 99.8% Air if you didn't see it in your hand you really wouldn't know its there. Handling this stuff is one of the most surreal experiences I have had. Just doesn't seem to make any sense knowing its a solid that you cant really feel.

lol now I have to get some to play with Grin
