My worry about playing as an evil character is killing an NPC and then finding I can't do a later quest because of it.

Check out Zophar's Domain. That link will bring you to their ZeroWing archive. You'll need something to play it back with, too. They've got all sorts of music for all manner of games from most of the major classic consoles, even if it is just audio data that's been pulled from a ROM image (note: you cannot get the ROM from them).

It's not an MP3, but you should be able to record your own, if you know what you're doing.

Thats my worry too, I always think if i kill someone I either won't be able to do a certain quest and/or get cool unique items. i won't be so bothered on a second playthrough though.

Thank you kindly, I'll give it a go.

If you have Dawn Of War: Soulstorm then you can get the beta through Steam by simply registering your copy of that.

You do know you don't have to do it all in one sitting? You can just start again at level 25 and just continue from there. It just remembers all the waves you have done, like I helped a bunch of people at work do 50 ages ago, so I got the achievement last night after completing wave 49.


That's good to hear, although I can't remember exactly where I was kicked out so I'll still have to do it all again, I think.

I recently bought Warhammer: Battlemarch and it's a little bit poo to be honest, there's several decent ideas on the go but it just falls flat.

I've not got a copy alas. Or Steam. Or a computer good enough to run it at a decent standard.
So that's a fail in general for me then.
I take it that's how you got it? I've got all of them up to Dark Crusade so if you're up for a match we could arrange one sometime?


Shame about the game sucking Seff. Shame about most of the Warhammer RTS games being sucky to boot. If you've not played them, Dawn of War is the series that you want.


Just been looking at info for the new Spore expansion. Looks set to take on and probably trounce Little Big Planet if it's level design editor is as good as it sounds.

I'd be interested in seeing more info on it to be honest. Sounds interesting though.

GTA IV DLC Lost and Damned will be 13.60 (Apparantly) That's a bit steep...

Played Mass Effect a bit ago. I've not been on it in ages, so I've forgotten what's going on a bit, sadly.

I think the last thing I was doing was investigating all the minor systems, and I've now forgotten where I've been. So I just went to the next main planet and did a bit of Geth killing.

If it's the actual mp3 of this song you want, rather than the Mega Drive music it's based on, then here it is, sir

As for the actual Mega Drive music, these YouTube videos have it - intro and stage 1

Zero Wing is actually a pretty decent game too, though the end credits are very odd if I remember correctly.

I remember having a Warhammer game called Dark Omen which was surprisingly good for its time. I played that an inordinate amount of time. I wonder where that's gone to actually as I think I only had the disc, no box or anything.

It's a shame that that game captured my imagination so little that I really could not be arsed to play once I got to the first planet. Too much talking and loading. I was thinking of revisiting it but to be honest I'd much rather play through Fallout again or Bioshock.

Thank you kindly my man, now I just need to spend about five hours dissecting the different bits and figure out how I can get Guitar Hero to make a noise even remotely close to that voice sample. wacko.gif

You're not wrong about Zero Wing either, I loved it from my first play. It's super hard though, I've never managed to finish it despite many attempts. I think that by level 7 I'm always running low on lives and tend to have lost whatever weapon I've powered up thanks to a clumsy death. Might have to give it another bash soon and see if all that Gradius and R-Type I played at work has upped my skill a little.

What you need to do is make sure you always have a little enemy captured in front of you as a shield.
