Remember those “BIOS” screens we discussed in Episode 34? Here they are, in case you never saw them / were so uninterested you didn’t Google them right away.
While I did see the original a few times in ’92, it was the 2.0 version (the sad, it-knows-it’s-about-to-die song that ended the episode) that my friends and I remember best.
They’re all so… weird. Pretty creative too. No idea who came up with all those fancy spinning logo tricks, but they were a hoot back then and today, well, they’re just silly. Like I said, it was a system that felt both brand new and impossibly old, a combination of of fresh CD-ROM tech and grainy picture quality. An acquired taste, at this point – but the music remains a real treat.
