Odd Request--Video Game Related

Post by Ryan H. Turner » Sat Jun 13, 2009 8:57 pm

Hey guys and gals--I've been a gamer, more or less, for my entire life. Weird that I still am, but whatever. It is what it is.

I used to have a game on an old PC years ago which I think was from LucasArts called "Podracer", based upon the famous pod racing scene from "The Phantom Menace". I cannot for the life of me find that stupid game ANYWHERE.

Does anyone have it that would be willing to let me buy it for a few bucks?

Please let me know--or point me to some hole-in-the-wall website that I can buy the stupid game from.

Thanks--from the old guy.

Don't know of the game you're talking about, but in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (IMO, the best PC game ever made, with an unbelievable score) and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II there is a side plot/mini-game that involves your character joining a landspeeder racing circuit. Just FYI.

Have you checked the newsgroups and torrents forums? Somebody is bound to have it......

Apparently you missed the term "old" in my sign off...what forums? And what the heck is a torrent?

Ehhhh... I used to own it. If I find it, I'll give it over to you (Don't get your hopes up, though).

A torrent for this game would be illegal! I would never publicly reveal information about this.

I'm 48 years old and I've been downloading from newsgroups for years now. PM me because I have found your Podracer program.

Well as long as we're discussing this, I found it too. Only 7 seeders, though.

IMO torrenting a game you legally own is fair use. the media industry doesn't think so though.
