๐Ÿ’พNEW PODCAST๐Ÿ’พ March was our 5th birthday, so we needed a big game to celebrate and what game for MS-DOS could be bigger than 1996's Quake?

Get ready for bunny hopping, rocket jumping, WASD+mouse, 3D acceleration, and oh so many mods. Enjoy!

Hello Mastodon! Let's start as I mean to go on by posting about a random DOS game. No idea where this service got the name from but it probably wasn't from Lane Mastodon vs. The Blubbermen, a 1988 Infocom release. These "Infocomics" were their other type of interactive fiction being a branching comic book. It's good silly fun, ahead of it's time for the idea, behind it's time for the tech with the Infocomics being possibly the last commercial games to only offer composite CGA graphics.

Our shoutout goes out to the YouTube show "A Question for Character", where you can find short & funny video game character studies ๐Ÿ‘

We're going to record our episode about Quake tonight. We've only received a single voice message so far.

It doesn't seem plausible that nobody else has an opinion about *Quake*.

Send them by mail to club@dosgameclub.com or here on Mastodon!

There doesn't seem to be a good and easy way to legally obtain the original game - only the "Extreme" enhanced edition is available on GOG.

I guess archive.org and eBay to the rescue...

New month, new game!

April is over now, and thus our days as Mech Warriors have come to an end.

Now it's time to Krush, Kill 'N Destroy!

Well, it seems like we couldn't find an early enough date to even record our episode 67 about Quake.

So expect it to be a couple days late, as we will actually record after the usual publication date.

Ah well. That gives all of you more time to send us voice messages with your thoughts about the game to club@dosgameclub.com.

Very excited for KKND month in DOS Game Club, where the only thing I'll say is "Krush, Kill, AND Destroy? In this economy?!"

I never played it before but it should be fun even if it ends up being a clunky game.

Also apparently the website for the series from the 90s is still up?!

We joined Mastodon yesterday, in four days we're going to start playing KKND: Krush Kill 'N Destroy with the club and now we find this out that there's a "War Mastodon" in this game.

This *can't* be pure coincidence. It's a sign.
