So, in a discussion posted his evening, someone mentioned the game Thexder. Man that takes me back. The last time I played that games was either at Jay Benach's or Chris Kennedy's house. I remember that I got a copy of the game from Jay, but it would not run on our family's old PC Jr. So I probably took the game over to Chris's house where there was bit more RAM to be had.
I should probably look those guys up sometime.
