Another month, another round-up. June.

It's official. April and May are over. Apparently so is June (wow, that was fast). Summer is here and the concrete is radiating its accumulated heat all over my gnome's face just to make this point clear. Still -and despite the unbearable heat- things don't seem to loosen up, and here's a selection of my better June posts and articles to prove it. There are more of the little buggers of course, but you'll have to dig into the dungeons of the Lair's archives or even use the categories feature to find them. For now, here's a selection (in no particular order):

The Soviet super home-computer of yore.

Beautiful screenshots from sick & gory games. Disturbing.

LucasArts' hidden ftp site.

Text is king! The interactive fiction feature.

Nude Mario videos !!

Warhammer news and rumors along with a nice White Dwarf review.

Escape the Dragon's Dungeon, or at least try to.

Adrian Smith's
amazing and quite fantastic (in the literary sense of course) art.

Download White Dwarf issue 1. For free.

Oblivion mods, apparently for the PC version. Oh, and there's a Monkey Island themed mod too.

WTF? A Dreamcast 2? No.

Head over Heels; a top retro remake.

Sensible Soccer 2006 review.

Pong. Donkey Pong. The Turd.

John Cleese says 'Fuck!' at a British memorial service.

The Chaos Bowl.

Gabriel Knight 2 video feature.
