    Since my state's "Stay-at-Home" mandate went into effect that left me with a few extra hours per day weekdays due to no to/from work travel and to a lesser extent morning preparations.

    I decided to apply some of this extra time towards gaming and re-learning and experimenting with ...

    This is a question for people who know the "Turok 2" title quite well.

    It was "re-mastered" years back...I purchased a copy off of www.gog.com and it works fine, but something happened just now which I've never encountered before.

    This had me thinking...just what are the other 1st place records that I have attributed to my name after submitting to TG from as far back as 1984 (though predominantly from 1998 thru present) ?

    This is one of the tougher titles for the O2. I am reasonably certain that scores in the 2-3K range are do-able with a lot of luck, but the top two scores on the TG database, both from the early 1980's, are out of this world impossible or at least highly unlikely.

    Once again US elected officials are blaming video games as the cause behind mass-shootings. Anything to divert from the fact that time and time again when these unfortunate situations happen a never-ending cycle occurs...and the real sources behind these senseless shootings are never addressed.
