Report A Blast From The Past in Battlecruiser Series Posted July 25, 2005 I first bought BC3000AD when egghead software was still in business in IL. I was about 10 years old then. Here i am now still playing Universal Combat at 21. Wow. I do say, while i hated the fact the original silver box BC3000ad was so buggy, If it werent for that i would have never learned so much about computers at such a young age. I spent a looong time trying to get that game to work for more than a few hours at a time.
