Four out of five hardcore Python fans agree: it is worth paying the $4,000 for a new 100 MHz Power Macintosh with quad-speed CD-ROM just to be able to watch John Cleese silly walk his away across yout desktop. Thanks to "Monty Python's Complete Waste of Time" CD-ROM, just released for the Macintosh, many will finally get to Pythonize their Macintosh desktops as well.

If, however, you are that fifth Python fan, and are thus without the resources to secure a fancy personal computer, don't despair. You might be able to get your Python fix (of a sort) with the new Sony PlayStation (or perhaps even a Sega Saturn). As for the PlayStation, this 32-bit game system, recently introduced in the United States, will be able to play two new CD-ROM adventure games that have very legitimate Python associations. Oddly enough, both games are humorous fantasy role playing games involving humans and dragons... in one, you are a wizard, defending your city against a horde of dragons while the other puts the boot on the other foot: you are a dragon trying to foil the plot of evil humans!
