I wouldn't even bother to pick it up from a bargain bin. I might go to the effort to take it out of a skip, IF I was already there taking copper pipe/lead roofing sheet or other such valuables from it (its quite astonishing sometimes how lucky one can get in terms of what people throw out. I've had a desktop computer the other year, a microwave that was almost new in appearance and fully working, that I've done a bit of work on to convert it into a MW suitable for my lab, going to add overhead stirring, a thermocouple to measure temperature if I can find one that is able to play it civilized with MW radiation, some extra screening to cover the hole that needs drilling for overhead stirring&the condenser. And in another, after spotting a few pipes, scored a 16th century solid silver jerusalem cross, in the templar cross style, scenes carved into it of christ, hallmark, date and image of the temple in jerusalem, plus an ivory or whalebone thingy that I originally thought to be a letter opener, but have since found to be a page turner for really lazy upper crust buggers in times long past, with a big hefty endcap made of Ag, that has quite a weight to it, along with some Ag lettering inlaid in it, a broken rolex watch (still good for the gems and gold parts, I have no idea if it is reparable or not, but if it isn't it'l be worth something either for scrap gems and gold, or just the gems and conversion of the gold to catalysts after dissolving the metal in aqua regia, in the same skip also found a huge amount of costume jewelery that can go on ebay, some buttons that look to be silver based on their blackening reaction once moistened and exposed to a jet of hydrogen sulfide gas, and quite a few other things to boot, that were/are going to be worth a fair bit. The jerusalem cross though, along with the lovely thick, hefty braided silver wire link-loop chain that it came with, that I don't think I am going to sell unless I can get it valued first and then also find out that its worth enough I have little choice but to sell. I actually want to keep that for myself though, because it really goes rather well in terms of complimenting my dress style when I have on one of either my leather trenchcoats, or short, really tight, thin leather coats, plus knee-length newrock boots and a spiked/or studded collar/homemade reflective eyepiece armless strap-on goggles, it goes too well and looks too damn good to sell unless I find it to be worth an awful lot that I could sink into the lab for new glassware and reagents if I did sell, because there is ALWAYS room for new equipment and more reagents&various 20 liter jugs of solvents to be bought so I don't run out too quickly:D
Plenty of antique or maker's marked pottery in others too. Found a whole bunch of old but goody type videogames on disk in there too, terminator-future shock, and the first system shock title to name just the very best of those. I don't remember for sure but there might well have been a copy of X-com UFO enemy unknown in that haul too. Even a couple of mercury switches (which these days due to political correctness in the name of 'greenness') and the fact that merury and possibly, not sure though, its divalent salts are forbidden for air transport, because of the way Hg metal and Hg (II) strip the protective oxide coating from aluminium resulting in it simply crumbling away, and of course this would be...not very good...to say the least if it spilled in a plane, which are largely made of Al and magnalium alloy; it makes mercury and its salts way too expensive, and of course now its banned from pretty much every over the counter type source available to general citizen end consumers of products, making Hg/Hg-X harder and pricier to obtain.,
Thats about the only time I'd bother picking up a copy of interceptor; if it were there in the pile of loot I'd just liberated from such a dumpster full of other goodies. And I certainly would not bother clearing space in my pockets or sacks if they were full already.
If your dead set on wasting a few hours playing this noxious travesty then download it online via torrent or whatever other method is quickest and easiest. otherwise do not bother, because it is a giant turd, defaecated from upon high from the diseased anus of a syphilitic whore upon the good name of the X-com series.
