    That means Totally Twisted will work. :)

    After Dark was the sh*t at its time. Now the screensavers are built-in to all OSes.

    I still know the whole flying toasters song:

    Flying out of the sun
    The smell of toast is in the air
    When there's a job to be done
    the flying toasters will be there…

    …okay I'l stop :D :D That song was pretty dumb.

    (PS- Lunatic Fringe was, is, and will forever be, one of the greatest games of all time)

    This'll refresh your memory.

    Lunatic Fringe was good. I liked it when you got the super ball coming out in three streams. I spent hours on that too.

    You forget the You Bet Your Head gameshow. I eventually memorized all the questions.

    My favorite is Mowing Boris from totally twisted. :)

    I agree 100%. I used to play LF for hours on my old LC. It was my flight training for EV, EVO, and EVN. :D :D Good times..

    you can't see it in preview mode, but space toasters is really friggin' cool... all kinds of interesting toasters... a congo line, toasters mating i think, a hula-hooping toaster, rudolph the red-nosed toaster, even one that is almost bondi-colored... i have found my new screensaver!

    :)

    You noticed the toasters mating too? Don't forgot all the exciting kinds of toast and waffles that come flying past. Some of the toasters dive bomb and I've even seen them get into traffic jams.

    Sweet! Happy cleo, happy cleo. :D

    My favorite was the marbles one...where they'd fall and pile up... and occasionally there would be the smiley face marble that would get mad when other marbles fell on him.

    And Lunatic Fringe was the BEST!

    Re: Ahhhh....

    i know exactly what you are talking about. Creepy Castle was the coolest. That was the one where they used old horror movie trivia as sort of an anti piracy thing. you had to answer the questions to start the game. Ahh those were the good old days.

    Too bad now we have stupid Quake and stupid Warcraft and stupid Unreal.

    When will companies learn that crappy graphics are where it's at?

    That makes me think of the original Castle Wolfenstein -- those were the good old days. :D
