Ancient DOS Games Filler #98 - Defense Grid 1 & 2 is online!
It's actually been awhile since I last touched these two tower defence games, as I've long since moved on to others, but going back and playing them again after so long reminded me of how good they were and why I sunk so many hours of my life into them! :B
But yeah, the last half of September was a MESS in reality, so I wanted to do something simple for this filler to give myself a bit of a break. I think the total amount of effort I put into this filler video was only about 10 hours in total, about half of what it usually takes me to do a filler video, though that did come at the cost of not being able to showcase the many different environments in both games.
Though surprisingly, despite the second game having steeper system requirements it was the FIRST game which was giving me stuttering and hiccups when trying to record it... Though I'm not surprised either as it was a Windows Vista title originally, meaning it likely lacks any proper DWM integration which in turn means its performance could be wildly inconsistent on modern Windows, though I wasn't having any issues at all when not recording. :P

My apologies, I meant no offence.
I am a linguist by training so I'm very aware of implicit meanings, so I am perhaps too inclined to read too much into what other people say. Sorry!
No worries! This is one of the many idiosyncrasies about me which I frequently have to explain to avoid misunderstandings so I don't find any offense prior to explaining how this works for me.
