@scuffpuppies The Thargoids were an alien race in "Captain Kremmen", an SF radio series from the 70's. Tharg from 2000AD might of course be a subtle nod to the same show as well. :)

@fredrikpj To be honest though, "grogg" in Sweden just means any hard liquor mixed with a non-alcoholic beverage; such as the perennial Swedish favourite moonshine & grape tonic. The fancy-pants infusion and adding of artificial sweeteners to the rum here would in Sweden move it strictly into drink territory. Or possibly even cocktail.

A Force aside: Eight notable Star Wars spin-offs

@jarlsberg Well good luck with that. :( Owning an original Star Wars arcade cabinet was always a dream of mine too, ever since I played it for the first time all those years ago. They're expensive as all hell now, though.
Edit: Plus emulating it is not really an option, either it really needs the custom controller to feel complete.

@ozzzy189 Paradroid could be GREAT as a remake. The premise is still solid. Kind of surprised noone's done this already.

Me, I want a remake of Heavy On The Magick. Will never happen, though.

@Ivattthestanier Back when the Auction House was a thing, there were chinese hackers breaking into accounts and using them to farm gold and items. Depends on when you left the account I suppose. I'd still change passwords etc to be sure.

Infiltrating enemy strongholds, hacking terminals, patrolling droids hellbent on your destruction, elevators... Is it just me, or does this sound like a 2015 version of Impossible Mission?

Damn iphone. I want it to be a new Marathon game. The Egyptian theme is there, with Thoth being one of the rogue AIs in the original Marathon series.Most probably just wishful thinking, but you never know...

Hell no! Give Ellie even more crap games, the crappier the better, I say. The reviews may not be Pulitzer material as consumer journalism, but they're brilliant entertainment. In fact, I'm pretty sure I got more fun out of reading them than I'd ever get from playing the games they're about...

I cannot help but notice that Heavy on the Magick doesn't feature on that list.
