I wish there was a new Starflight game.

What good video games are reminiscent of Rogue-likes (viz. Incursion), Risk-likes (viz. Lux, Advance Wars), and Starflight, especially in the fact that they can be stopped and started at any time? Bonus points if said video games are either for OS X or can be easily emulated in OS X.

Retro Gaming Yen

I feel like I missed out by never playing any of the non-online Ultima games. How do I play them now? I have a PS2, a PowerBook G4, and a ThinkPad. Will I be able to play them somehow? Is an emulator the only way?

Seeking title of Mac-only game from early '90s with detailed character creation system.

EsotericMacSoftwareFilter: My senior year of college (1990-1991), I played a Mac-only role-playing game, the name of which escapes me. The game itself wasn't that good, but I loved the character creation system. You chose your mother and father's professions and that determined your base stats. Then you described how you spent your time in four-year blocks (25% study, 25% play, 50% womanizing, or whatever). These blocks further modified your character's scores. Over the years, I've conducted numerous web searches for this game, but for the life of me I can't find anything on it. Does anyone know which game this was? Does anyone know where I could buy (or download) a copy for my gathering-dust Mac SE? [more inside]
