This week, I saw an advance screening The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug — you can read my thoughts about the film by clicking on the link above. This has got me on a bit of a Tolkien bender which I suspect will last all weekend. Therefore, I shall be 'kicking it old school' (that's still a phrase, right?) and playing The Hobbit on the Commodore 64.
What with today's easy access to emulation and all, getting hold of this game shouldn't be too difficult (insert obligatory "yes, I have the original ROMs" disclaimer here.) I used to play this ace text adventure at my mate's house around a thousand years ago when real hobbits still roamed the earth.
One of my main memories of the game is the way Thorin kept incessantly singing about gold. Clearly, Peter Jackson was a big fan.
What about you guys? Let everyone know what games you'll be playing in the comments section below. (And happy Friday!)
