Dosbox Games You're Looking Forward To
Posted 19 April 2010 - 01:30 AM
I've never used DOSBox before, but I started to think about it, and I think there are at least a few games I'd want to try.
The first ones that come to mind are Relentless and Twinsen's Odyssey (LBA 1&2). I've never played Alone in the Dark, but I may want to try it. I'll probably play Warcraft as well.
What do you all want to play in DOSBox?
Wow, Twinsen's Odyssey never even crossed my mind! That'll probably be one of the first I try out too, now that you mention it. Other ones I'll be playing right off the bat:
- Duke Nukem 1 & 2
- Commander Keen (all)
- F-15 Strike Eagle 3
- Jazz Jackrabbit

EDIT: I still have my CD for Daggerfall. I actually still have the box it came in also, the shiny one, and the instructions and all the papers that came in it. I wonder how much I could sell it on e-bay for?

Death Rally...probably too high requirements though.
Play Karnaaj Rally (GBA) instead. It seems to be a decent alternative

Betrayal at Krondor was such an amazing game. Have you read any of Feist's novels?
Well, actually I loved it for its gameplay (I didnīt finish it so I couldnīt appreciate its promising story)
On the other hand, the depressing and shattered world of Darksun really encouraged me to read the novels
I am the other way around. Never played Krondor (looking forward to trying it out), but read a part of the Riftwar Saga.
My keenest point of interest will be UFO : Enemy Unknown, Dune 2, about a hundred of adventure games, Dungeon Master 2, the Beholder trilogy (hi Skeezix ), Lands of Lore, Little Big Adventure... there are so many to replay and so many to explore, it all depends on what will run okay in DOSBox. I don't want to foretell evil but I would not count with Dungeon Keeper that much, it was rather demanding. Hopefully I am wrong.

I played the heck out of the demo version as a kid! Why didn't anyone tell me it's freeware now? This gains an instant spot on my "must play" -list.
I played Crusader: No Remorse on my cousin's Sega Saturn, but I don't remember getting much further than the first level. I would love to play that again. Also, Fantasy Empires.
I'd love playing the crusader games (there were three if I remember correctly), but I don't think P can churn enough cycles

I'm also keeping an eye on this engine: http://darkxl.wordpress.com/ and hoping it will become open source one day
