It's absolutely bizarre, isn't it? But once you get past the design choices there's actually a really good game in there!

Yeah, but atleast Cruelty Squad HQ makes it very, very obvious the most important thing you need to remember is aim for the head.

Update the fiftieth!

Like a headshot in Cruelty Squad, Lawnie is both surprisingly effective and leaves a lasting mark!

We made it! Fifty "updates" that are really just thinly-veiled advertisements for the ever-growing madness that is GET OFF MY LAWN!

This week's scripted video was a sequel to my previous Infinite Games video, inventively titled Infinite Games II. It covers games from the 2000s, some of which are surprisingly modern despite their age! There will not be a part 3, despite some calls for it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1k_eOMLalmU

Two great games appeared in Random DOS land, the first of these was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, a classic albeit long in the tooth adventure title from Lucasfilm Games, who would soon go on to become Lucasarts and take over the gaming world. It's not without its share of problems, but it's a great adaption of a wonderful movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=optrChoDGlI

The second title came completely out of the blue and surprised me! That was The Eye of Typhoon! A classic fighting game in the vein of Double Dragon or Street Fighter II. Sure, the framerate isn't perfect, but since good fighting games are thin on the ground for DOS this actually stands out and was really enjoyable! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUgAGHuios0

Battle 8 of the Stele Chronicles has been postponed until later this month, but what hasn't been postponed is the continuing updates and videos on the channel! Until next time!

Update the fifty-first!

Better late than never, right?

This week's controversial scripted video claimed that Dungeon Keeper and Theme Hospital were good games. Shocking, I know! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iHL9pdl-UE

Unfortunately in Random DOS Game land it was very quiet, save for one standout title. Also by Bullfrog. Syndicate! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8S5MS5GyVBg

In conclusion: Bullfrog Productions good. Week: quiet.

You can expect a better and more comprehensive update later this week! Lawnie, away!
