Ep. 59 - Alignment Charts: a useful tool

The Alignment Chart - some people like it, some people hate it, nobody can agree on it. Ric spends an episode trying to explain how alignments work to Paul and ends up knowing less than he did going in.

Ep. 56 - Ultima 7: how awesome is/was it?

Ultima 7 is regarded by many as one of if not actually the best RPGs of all time. But is this just nostalgia speaking? What would it be like to play it today? Paul played a bit of it recently in preparation for the Richard Garriott interview, which he unfortunately missed, but it would be a shame to let that research go to waste. Find out what an Ultima 7 noob has to say to a veteran.

Ep. 53 - EcoQuest: because why not?

Our cyberpunk series was not a hit, so we decided to double-down on a game nobody's invested in. This is a game. And this is an episode about that game.

Ep. 51 - Neofeud: beautifully flawed

November 2019 continues, and so does our cyberpunk theme. This week we explore Neofeud, and discuss how a crude and unpolished game comes together to be greater than the sum of its parts.

Ep. 50 - Blade Runner (the adventure game)

It is November 2019, which means that Blade Runner is now a present-day documentary! Back in the late 90s, people regarded the PC game adaptation as the last great point and click adventure game. Today, we know that's not true, but why did people think that? We discuss that!

Ep. 43 - Shawn Mills (The Sierra Adventure) interview

Shawn Mills launched a Kickstarter campaign for his book, "The Sierra Adventure: The Story of Sierra On-Line" and it broke its goals before we could even get him on the show. For those of you who haven't ordered a copy yet, he joins us today to give us a glimpse of what to expect.

Also, our episode is a bit louder this week, and will continue at this volume moving forward. As it turns out, I learned that previous episodes were much quieter than the podcast standard.

Check out "The Sierra Adventure" on Kickstarter here:
