Great choice, sirs/ma’ams
And hello everyone! Joining the club from Finland after listening the podcasts for some time now.
Syndicate was one of the first (if not the first) RTS’s I ever played on my beloved 486 SX25 IBM, I’m guessing around 1994. The game came along Sound Blaster 16 sound card that we updated our machine with, and I played the hell out of it although not completely grasping its finesse at the time. I was fascinated by its brutal and relentless atmosphere, but also of its grim dystopian, cyberpunk aesthetic.
I’ve occasionally replayed Syndicate since and even addressed it in my blog (in Finnish) , which also celebrates 90’s gaming.
So I am down for another replay this May!
