I've got some twenty-year-old CDs here that I can't really justify keeping around anymore, but it feels wrong to just trash them. So gang, get ready for... #CDFuneral
What a bunch of garbage. Oof that's a terrible stay to a eulogy, sorry. Uh I played the demo disc of tomb raider/Jedi Knight a whole lot. Tomb raider had no textures so everything was just grey. Jedi Knight had some appropriately cheesy FMV clips. I think I needed the BASIC software for some boring bad class?
Do you guys remember these dinky little CDs? They would absolutely tear up any slot-load drives they found, it was like a huge prank
@trappleton I've definitely broken one of these in a tray loader before
@hache back then I never appreciated what vestiges remained of a mechanical aesthetic in computing
@trappleton one fast food did a Pokemon run of these (maybe for the 2000 movie?), where each disc had a unique Pokemon with stats... It must have had gameplay but I honestly never played it that far, and only had one anyway
But they were pill shaped. Remember how some disc trays had the pill shaped interior cutout as well?
