The discussion occurs in forums and on IRC (notice lack of Disord!). In addition, after each game, a podcast is recorded with members talking about a game. I genuinely dig the formula - it's not too involved, but there is a community behind it. + +January was a month of [B-17 Flying Fortress](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B-17_Flying_Fortress_(video_game)). The only flying simulator I enjoyed was [LHX Attack Chopper](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LHX_Attack_Chopper). Most likely due to it being more arcadey than simulatory. + +Next month we will be playing [Alien Legacy](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alien_Legacy) from 1994. This is the first time I'm seeing this game. After that, the schedule moves to [Star Wars: Dark Forces](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars:_Dark_Forces), [Discworld](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discworld_(video_game)) (oh no) and finally to [Speedball 2](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speedball_2:_Brutal_Deluxe). + +A few days ago, I [posted a memory](/2023/my-first-computer/) about my first PC, which was a DOS machine. No Windows for me for the next few years! One of my [resolutions for 2023](/2023/resolutions-for-2023/) was joining online communities.
