Took me forever to remember what this game was called... Did anyone else play/love Corncob 3D?


Edit: the best part was the guy who would give you a "thumbs up" that looked like the middle finger if you got too close to him. Prompting you to murder him without hesitation. (naturally) That'll learn him! There was another guy up on the floating runway. I remember some way to unlock a faster plane too... What a great game...

Was this an arcade game?
What console system was it played on?

Looks interesting...

That reminds me of something we misunderstood as kids. I remember playing Wheel of Fortune on our Commodore 64. When you'd solve a puzzle occasionally you'd get this congratulations:


Being young, we read it as "Applesauce Applesauce".

Even after it was pointed out to us, we'd still jump up, run around, and shout "Applesauce" whenever that came up!

No need to be jealous I left some in stock.

but once I have a box built, holes drilled and wires connected, I'll let you know how it is.


(and what I'd do differently the 2nd time, of course)

This week's game:

Cultists of Cthulhu: Miskatonic University



Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sixpencegames/cultists-of-cthulhu-miskatonic-university?ref=discovery

Detail: Cultists of Cthulhu is the second game from Sixpence Games. After successfully delivering our first game, Professor Pugnacious, we felt inspired to take on a more ambitious project, and this is that. You can read a summary of the rules, read the full rules, look at some finished room tiles, and some unfinished character portraits. The money from the kickstarter will be used to finish the art, manufacture, and ship the game to you.

Cultists of Cthulhu is a game of mystery, investigation, cooperation, and betrayal. This game was inspired by the writings of H.P. Lovecraft and the many others working in the Cthulhu Mythos, such as August Derleth, Robert E. Howard, and especially Robert W. Chambers, and by boardgames like Battlestar Galactica, Last Night on Earth, Betrayal at House on the Hill, and The Resistance. Cultists of Cthulhu is a tense horror game where you never know quite who you can trust, until it is too late.

I am becoming increasingly aware that i just didn't play enough video games when i was younger. That said, i did just aquire a NES and two SuperNES systems last week (though they are untested so i don't know if they work yet.) I guess i'll start making up for lost time ;)

Awesome. Played it on Sega Genesis. Best part was the shouts from the crowd. "Kick him!" That and how the crowd would shank you if you got too close.
