    The Jurassic Park game is like a VR game concept

    DF dips their toe into LGR territory and he assists them in doing it - love everything about it.

    I bet the "looking down" trick to improve performance must have caused some awkward moments in the Linneman's household when John played Trespasser.

    Fun fact - Quake 3 Arena on version 1.16n with the DC map pack installed is still cross platform with the Dreamcast version!

    Trespasser still looks and runs WAY better than ARK on the Switch though.

    This video talks to my heart in such a deep way. Those years were my apex, I had a Vodoo1 and a 300 mhz PII, I struggled to make these games work at 512x384 and I often swapped between resolutions to reach for a playable frame rate. My original copies with discoloured CD keys are still there, also Unreal and the Dreamcast versions as well. I also have the unreleased DC version of the first HL, and played all the way through it even if it asks for 50 memory blocks on the VMU. I live in the past, I can recognize it, and to me that will always taste like the future, it still does... to me the first HL feels like modern and fresh, there must be some kind of glitch going on with my perceptio of time. I will probably end up somewhere in those years when I'll die, a sort of time chamber isolated in a parallel dimension, with my family intact, my beloved pets, some old friends lost in time, the September wind and games.

    So glad to see you guys show respect for CRT. I always felt like starcraft had a gloomier, grittier vibe when playing it on a CRT back in the day.

    Playing on CRT in 2019 should be considered an upgrade.

    playing on a CRT tv was way better than on anything I have owned now in terms of input lag/response time.
