Update the twelfth!

Like a magnet caught in a steel mill, I just won't go away!

This week's scripted video was about games that were entirely free, but also sported a great replay value! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDJfvKDWSzc

I also provided a channel update, outlining what I plan on doing over the next while, including a poll that expires by the time you read this. Helpful! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ti3cPYW5i8Y

Unlike the tremendous free games in the main video, the random selection this week was one of the worst I have ever seen. We had some company-sponsored advertisement game in MER Adventure Climbing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vyRsjVlUiA This was followed by a CGA gangster shooting game called Dugsy which was playable at best. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96Td-2oy8XY The other two are so bad I'm not even going to link them!

Next week's update will be substantially better than this one, but for now that's your lot!

Update the thirteenth!

Like an inexorable slow-motion motorway car wreck, you scream out "no!" but Lawnie keeps coming with the retro gaming videos!

This week's scripted video was part 3 of a countdown series I do that highlights the best games from the last 100 episodes of the Random DOS Game Show! Who made the 25 this time around? Click to find out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BDlwolIMeo

We kick off a new season of the aforementioned show with the time-breaking The Legend of Kyrandia, an excellent point and click adventure game from Westwood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWfPIWAQ6bA

Three other titles followed but they were mostly forgettable. The ball-based action puzzler Rollin being the most intriguing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2gwJ8BmSuw

This week also saw the debut of a new series where I take a random WAD from Doomworld and play it before giving my thoughts as a distinctly average Doom player. The first WAD was Mayhem by Tovi Grossman. It didn't impress me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ud0ixvfMxNw

Keep your eyes peeled like bananas in a monkey house, because there will be another update this time next week!

Update the fourteenth!

What does everybody want? Not more GET OFF MY LAWN content! Like a bubbling geyser powered by the very core of the Earth, the content keeps sloshing out at an unstoppable rate.

This week's scripted video was a list of DOS gaming classics that everyone should play at least once, even if they hate them! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DmN3SYEYms

May the 4th was celebrated with a special spotlight video on The Force Engine, an engine replacement for Dark Forces and Outlaws. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=679hbliCfLQ

The Random Game selections were pretty terrible though, with the only standout being the entertaining real-time puzzler Pushover! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oK6Q6iBpV3c

Will the wheels finally start to come off? Will Lawnie lose his mind by uploading too many videos? Find out... next time!
