Oh, wow, another pinball game from 21st Century Entertainment! After first hitting a gold mine with Pinball Dreams, this company milked their cash cow beyond imaginable limits. By 1996, there were so many on the market that Absolute Pinball can't have left a big impression anymore. At least it didn't bring back any recollection to me. The concept was always the same: four new tables, each with a specific theme, built from the standard physical elements. The surprising thing is that nevertheless, replaying them today, quality differs greatly. Table layout and features can place the overall game anywhere from total failure to great fun on the quality scale. lostaddict1 tells us all about this one.

We're all quite vain here, you know. If you show us that you've invested some real time into your submission, it's a sure way to have it posted soon. Like macburn did with Blockbuster. Yes, we're also quite easy to please ;)

To the next 20 years!

(Sorry, making the cake took one day longer than expected…)

LostInSpace prepares the next snack for all of us: Black Sect 2: The Cursed Crypt. Not quite a full meal, since he skips the first part and jumps right to the sequel, but there is a good reason for that – language barrier. Although he may have missed that an English version of the Atari ST original does exist… so should we send him back and oblige him to fight his way through the clunky previous part as well? ;)

Lone producer of new contents LostInSpace goes back to the beginnings of everyone's favourite game publisher ever: Sierra On-Line. Oil's Well isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of their back catalogue, however. All the more reason to learn about the humble beginnings of it all.

Remember that Star Trek episode with those animals breeding so fast that the ship was full of them? This game bears no formal relation, but nevertheless, it has something in common. LostInSpace revisits a favourite of the MS-DOS shareware era in the early 90s. Crystal Caves is fondly remembered for its varied, puzzly level design. Where technology wasn't quite up to par compared to other systems, good ideas made up for it in those games which stood the test of time. This is one of them.

dosgameruy kicks off the new year (for real, sorry, Moebius) with an in-depth look at Rise of the Triad: Dark War. This game comes from the time when 3D shooters were taking over the complete market, leaving nothing else… but at least, this one has one major redeeming feature: it's excellent box art! Funny how such purely cosmetical differences can communicate an imaginary different theme and therefore trigger fundamentally different associations with a player even if the game itself is mostly "same old".

As a nice side effect, this also fills one of the long standing open points of our request list. Take a look – maybe there is something you could take care of? It would be appreciated for sure! Come on, it would be a checkmark on one of those new year's resolution ;)

And 2020 is finally here! I like to think this year should be unique and fulfilling in some way at least because I have a thing for even dates like that. The year behind was a very difficult and edgy one in every sense. It took a lot of our energy and made us re-think a few of our policies several times over. Some scheduled tasks weren't accomplished as expected, sorry. Certain things are easy to implement in theory but actual practice can reveal plenty of pitfalls. Yes, 2019 leaves a lot to be desired, but our suffering wasn't in vain and it has taught us a number of important lessons. Thank you everyone who contributed vastly last year, we will also try to meet your expectations and make TGOD better than ever. Happy New Year everyone!

P. S. Apologies for a little belated announcement, very busy days *hiccup*
