So, there's this other wiki for Commander Keen on FANDOM:
https://commander-keen.fandom.com/
It seems to have some plagiarized pages from our own Keen Wiki. Is this an issue?

The page of the game Which Must Not Be Named looks pretty empty.
But it already has one powerful comment:

I doubt that there are many Dangerous Dave 2, 3, 4 etc. fans out there, but someone is actually working on a very similar game, so if you're interested:

Oh gorrammit.

Got a new PC built thanks to some parts a friend generously gave me. It's beautiful. It's shiny. The case actually has cable management and airflow. It runs like a dream.

...

Except for the gargin' wireless card.

New card's on order, but I want to play games and I can't even do that. >:

Ain't she a beaut?

Oooh, it's very nice looking, pretty colors :drool

It has a very modern look to it, I particularly like the see-thru part that lets you see how it's put together :)

Thanks! The glass panel is a big part of why I got that case actually - I like to look in and see the inner workings. I'm eventually going for a full RGB build; just need RAM, an SSD, and a power supply (yes they do all come in pretty light-up format. I swear I'm a human magpie sometimes.)

Make sure whatever RGB SSD you go for isn't one of the ones which runs super hot because of the lights. Gamers Nexus has a video on this iirc.

I was looking into TeamGroup Delta; good reviews overall, never seen anything hinting at heating issues, and quite affordable. Heard anything about them?

This is neat.

Did any keeners ever use something like this playing Keen?

Perhaps the source modders could find hitherto unfathomable patches using this equipment...

Can't say I've ever used a physical device like that, the first time I was introduced to that type of thing was Cheat Engine and/or a gamecube region block bypass CD

I use Team memory and a friend of mine who runs a computer shop uses it in all their builds - can't speak to their SSDs directly, but they seem a solid budget manufacturer. Just make sure whatever you go for has a DRAM cache - relative to the cost of the drive it's nothing but the speed improvment is very noticeable. (Apparently - I've not seen a DRAM-less one in action.)

Excellent. I actually have one of their non-RGB SSDs and I've been very pleased with its performance, which is why I wanted to stick with them, so I'll do exactly that.

Just gotta get the funds saved up for it now, lol.

Commander Keen Complete Comes To The Playstation Classic! - it's actually Commander Genius, but still cool.
