Floppy drive mounts? Come on...


Don't diss the floppy drive what if I want to install win 95 again just to see if it will run alright on a $1400 PC.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Trust me I've already done the Windows 95 install on modern hardware -- it sucks...and doesn't bring back "good" memories. No drivers, and just to play SkiFree. :P

If I get another case with a floppy bay I'm actually going to mount the floppy drive I have laying around...:lol:

Another nice review!
I like this one specially for having 6 internal 3.5" bays.

OMG NOSTALGIA!!!!! I was thinking about this game semi recently ( think I saw a picture of someone dressed as a pixelated abominable snowman that always eats you) and could not for the life of me remember what it was called :dunno:

Might have to pick this up on my phone as this is a game I'd have fun picking up and putting down when I have a free minute

This was the only similar era'd game I could remember the name of and playing:
http://www.classicdosgames.com/game/Jetpack_Christmas_Special!.html :wub: (It had a really good level designer too)

This thread is now a 16 bit retro pc games thread :cool2: (In before Lemmings :) )

....Oh, nice review too!! :D
