Cool video. You seem almost as excited as I was back then :D Waiting a whole year must really be a killer! I’m sure it will be more than worth it in the end though.

Yeah, I guess if you're moving to another part of the world then sentimentality goes out of the window. Luckily, I was never made to make such a difficult decision! :D

Didn’t the original turrican 2 have an intro? I seem to remember seeing images of it. I have a 2 disc cracked version with no intro. Seems strange if there’s a 1 disc version with an intro as well.
