I did a search on Amazon and all the copies I saw weren't cheap, but thats not a problem if you are willing to play out the money. One thing I don't understand though TC, is that you can buy the PC version as a download on Steam for about 5 bucks. Why don't you buy that version instead and save the money? After all, all you get is a cd and a box for the extra money, thats the way I see it whether the game is old or not.Just-Breathe

But the thing is, if I get the boxed copy I knowI'm getting all the materials. With the Steam re-releases, I think they took out the music, for example - I know that Quake needed the CD for the music, and the digital copy didn't include those files.

As petty as it seems (yes, I know none of these games were known for their soundtrack), that's not good enough for me - I want to be able to use all of the materials, for completeness' sake, even though this is all only for my own benefit.

get it on the Gameboy Advanced. Thats what I did. It plays great!

the gameboy advance copy doesn't have any music and the original copy for PC comes in floppy discs so it's likely the TC won't be able to play it

What do you mean, "the TC won't be able to play it"? I don't know what you mean, or what TC stands for. :3

Maybe I wasn't clear. I need a physical copy for THE COMPUTER. I can't do anything with a GBA cartridge. -___-

Earthworm Jim! My best friend had that - we'd always restart just so we could launch the cow over and over. Good times...

Note: I'm assuming the Legacy forum is the best place for this, since the game in question is nearly 20 years old (wow, how time flies!). If this still belongs under PC, then I'm sorry.

I'm looking for a physical copy of Wolfenstein 3D that has all 6 original episodes, and includes all the original materials.

Weird though it sounds, I'm going to tinker with the Wolf3D source code that id made available ages ago (just for fun, don't ask), and I need a legal, registered copy of the game so I can useallof the music, art and map assets from Wolf3D and Spear of Destiny as I tinker.I flat-out refuse to get a digital copy unless it's 110% necessary, so don't try to tell me otherwise. :D

From what I understand, the Activision jewel case edition (linked below, since embedding seems to be busted right now) includes all of that, including Spear of Destiny - but I want to make absolutely sure, since physical copies are becoming increasingly rare (not to mention pricey) and I want to make absolutely sure I buy the right thing.

If anyone knows, thanks!

For those who have trouble hearing Amy, they fix the sound around 3:25. Stick with it. :3

@valent1n They probably objected to your use of the word gay and with good reason. This is the 21st century - grow up and find a new adjective.

"Shotguns?" "Well, they only had two." I laughed hard even at that. This is why Naughty Dog is hands-down my favorite developer. :D

"Sounds like they're gone." Hard to get more wrong than that...

@edgegaming I'm sure it will - it's the PS4 you should be concerned about. :lol:
