Happy Flag Day, and also here's a random post.

So I was throwing away some old junk I found in a box earlier today and one of the items was an Origin Systems game catalog from 2001. You might be interested to note that at the time big CD-ROM games like Ultima and the Wing Commander II collection cost... gulp. $79.95! That's what, $800 in today's money? On the other hand, you were getting Wing Commander II, so in all honesty that was a heck of a bargain.

Sigh... I miss Origin. They were one of the good guys. Them, Looking Glass Software, and Pinball Construction Set-era Electronic Arts.

...Hmm. Someone should remake Pinball Construction Set for modern systems. Srsly. With Havok physics. I think it would sell about a trillion copies.
