Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 279 - Zork Nemesis is online! So... Zork Nemesis was not only the very first Zork game I ever played as a kid, but I only ever owned the demo version and I really enjoyed it, but never got around to acquiring or playing the full game. Heck, I never even looked into what the …

Ancient DOS Games Pro 17 - Minimum Winning Score - Dangerous Dave is online! So, I play through Dangerous Dave about once or twice a year just for the heck of it, but something I'd never thought to try until recently was to go for a "Minimum Winning Score" run, beating the game collecting as few …

Happy New Year, everyone! :D Time to get back into the swing of Ancient DOS Games with the first new ADG video of the year: Episode 278 - Zeliard I actually finally got hold of this game several months back, but wanted to wait until now to do a video on it because I had a feeling it would be perfect …

Ancient DOS Games Filler #85 - Crystal Caves HD is online! So... wasn't quite expecting to make this followup this soon, but Apogee decided to send me a free copy completely out of the blue, no strings attached, so... here we are! :D The funny thing is this actually turned out to be a much more …

Ancient DOS Games Filler #84 - End of 2020 Update is online! This is just a quick video talking about what to expect for the rest of the year and how I intend to handle the whole "seasons" thing going forward. :B Also... Some clarification. It looks like GOG used the UK release of the game. The " …

Ancient DOS Games Episode 277 - Realms of the Haunting is online! So, I already had an idea of what I was getting myself into with this game, but despite that, I was kind of both pleasantly surprised and surprisingly disappointed at the same time. This is game with some extremely fine attention to …

Ancient DOS Games Pro 16 - AI Investigation - Stunts / 4D Sports Driving is online! I kinda went into this one expecting it to turn out fairly mundane and got a little more than I bargained for! Yeah, turns out the AI in Stunts isn't as well balanced as it would have you believe and many of the …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 276 - SWIV 3D is online! Here's a game I originally played the demo of a long time ago and really enjoyed, but for the longest time I never got to play the full game, and now that I have... well... I like it for sure but MAN is this thing hard! It's that special kind of …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 275 - Crystal Caves is online! So... I'd never actually played Crystal Caves until this week... :O I'm not really sure exactly why I missed it, though I think my logic as a kid with limited modem bandwidth was that I'd rather play the newer stuff than the older stuff. …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Pro 15 - Whip Investigation - Kroz Series is online! This is something that's always bugged me with the Kroz games, as you'll sometimes be making good progress in a level and suddenly your whips can't even cut through hot butter, and then at some moments it's like the whip's made …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 274 - Toonstruck is online! ...despite spending the whole day and night working on this while writhing in agony from spoiled food due to a malfunctioning fridge. ...yes, seriously. Fridge is replaced now thankfully. :P But in any case, I kinda went into Toonstruck expecting …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Filler #83 - Useful Gaming Websites is online! Despite exceedingly loud early morning drilling and a bat problem destroying my ability to sleep this week, I managed to squeeze this video out as I fully intended to do something fast and easy. I think in total I spent maybe 12 hours …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 273 - Theme Hospital is online! Given how much I typically enjoy games made by Bullfrog, it might come as a surprise that there's any exceptions to that rule... but this is one of them. I actually avoided this game for the longest time primarily because of the health care …

VileR wrote on 2020-08-01, 13:19: BTW, I think this is the first time I've ever heard "xmas" pronounced as written ("ex-mass"). Or was that supposed to be "XMS edition"? :D If it visually said "Christmas" I would've called it that instead. I prefer not to mince words as I already have trouble …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Mod 8 - Level Editing - SkyRoads is online! I was really surprised at first how little there was in the way of custom SkyRoads content and editors despite there being TONS of clones and remakes and such. Then when I actually looked into how SkyRoads levels are stored on disk it …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Epic's "Fire Fight" from a few years later had some similar gameplay elements and could qualify as a near-successor. Free-roaming, top-down shooters are scarce though. Engh, kinda. I've played the full version of Fire Fight (I don't own it) and I know from experience that it's a neat game with some …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 272 - Zone 66 is online! Really had high hopes for this one seeing as it's incredibly difficult to acquire the full, complete copy of Zone 66 legitimately nowadays, and it actually does have a very strong start! But... by the end it devolves into an overly difficult mess …

I mean, not NOW because pandemic and everything, but once …

Ancient DOS Games Episode 271 - The Fortress of Dr. Radiaki is online! So... how do I put this delicately...? Hmm... I think the best way I can sum up this game is: TRAIN WRECK. This game is abysmal. It is so bad that I actually couldn't bring myself to see it all the way through, even though I was …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

OK, so I should point out a few things about the desktop compositing issue with Windows 10: 1. Not EVERYONE is suffering from it. There's a whole slew of factors involved and it's not clear what those factors even are, as two people with nearly identical setups can end up with one person having …
