Heads-up. Unreal Tournament Classic : GOTW is only £1.19 on Steam. .. He says after spending about an hour trying to find the bloody CDs.

I've been on an unreal tourney binge over chrimbo, loved playing through both 99 and 2004 versions

I must admit, it takes some getting used to, trying to play it with just a joypad instead of a mouse like I'm used to!!

Aye, joypad controls for an FPS never really stayed with me, except for goldeneye / perfect dark.

Finally remembered where I put my UT Backup CDs with all my maps, skins, mods and mutators.

.. Fuck..
two CDs, each containing a big .zip file, each one completely irretrievable from the corrupt CDs.

Note 1 : Fucking CD backups are fucking useless. If you have ANYTHING on CD backup, grab it NOW, if you can, and pop it onto a proper NAS backup drive.. FFS

Note 2 : If I'd've stored everything as individual files, instead of as a big .zip, at least some of the individual files would've been retrievable.
.. FFS..

Lesson Learned...

I remember being tricked into buying a 10x10 box of verbatim cd's back in the late ninetees. It stated in the advert "lifetime guaranteed" They did not last very long at all.

Luckely Steam takes care of my games and saves now.

I tried fallout 4 a couple of days ago. It had a hard crash after maybe 5 minutes of playing. I think the last nvidia update broke it. I could play it for an entire day a couple of weeks ago without a problem. I had this with Overwatch also back when it was free to play. Other games just work without a problem.

Used to love Medal of Honour: Frontline, played with joypad. Even thought there was no tutorial to get used to the controls - at the start it threw you right into the shit with the Normandy landings. It's like "there you go.... work it out yourself".

It was fucking nails, but get used to it, I did. Turned out to be one of the best games I've ever played.

Only really play console games now so gamepads are the weapon of [hobson's] choice. But I can't say any FPS has really measured up since. I'd maybe like to try Battlefield 1, or COD: WW2 but Black Ops III really put me off. It was bloody awful.

Now THAT is how you do a console FPS!!

Oh yeah Timesplitters 2 was quite good, too. Don't think I ever finished it tho... seem to recall getting stuck with some big-ass laser thing shooting randomly around the room.

Timesplitters 2 was ace in multiplayer. Never really enjoyed TS3 though.
