Depending on how strong your convictions are, you could easily justify downloading it from Abandonia since you once owned a legal copy and simply lost it, as opposed to having sold it. Incidentally, that's the moral gymnastics I engaged in, as I owned a C64 copy and a re-release from Computer Gamer. Probably still have that PC copy bouncing around somewhere, I just don't feel like looking for it.
That's exactly my issue. I hate piracy. It's theft, don't care how you justify it. Megan Fox could show up in a thong made of twizzlers and a bra made of whipped cream and make a strong, poignant argument as to why it's okay and I'd kick her ass so hard out of the door that she wouldn't feel the first bounce. Someone worked to make that game, however long ago and I'm sure some cousin found my CD book and someone told them to go ahead and borrow those old disks...Matt doesn't play computer games anymore anyway. The worst possible explaination is it was in a box that got purged by accident. Sucky but still it makes me do moral yoga and not the awesome nude kind I saw online once.
I'm not a collector so a mint copy is of little or no interest but I did remember that my brother Carl who gave me that collection for X-Mas along with Elder Scrolls Redguard-one of the most udnerappreciated games ever- has the exact same collection. He should be down tomorrow so if I can get a hold of him in the AM maybe he can bring down his copy.
If you're not moving you should be shooting, if you're not shooting you should be reloading, if you're not moving, shooting, or reloading someone is going to cut off your head and put it on a stick-Clint Smith Thunder Ranch
