One of the things I did a lot of on my trip was playing Star Control 2. Or rather, The Ur-Quan Masters, which is a freeware version of it based on the public-domain source code for the 3DO. (Find it here, if you care: http://sc2.sourceforge.net/ ) It is an awfully good game. Lots of exploration, open-ended gameplay, plenty of humor, and it's got a really good classic sci-fi plot. Yay for retrogaming!
