Blood

Yo yo yo,

Oh my, we're running late a bit 😮 But the good news is: we've got a new podcast episode for you all! In March we like to play big first person shooters and for this year we played Blood, the 1997 cultist shooter by Monolith Productions.

To discuss this game, your regular hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") sat down with DOS Game Club member Tim ("spacefarer") and DOS Nostalgic Anatoly. Blood is one of Anatoly's favourite games, so he could tell us all about what makes this game so great.

Enjoy!

VOICE MESSAGE

This voice message was sent to us by DGC member Adam ("Pseudo C"), but sadly got lost before we could include it in the show. So here it is by itself. Thanks Adam!

Life and Death

Hey WeirDOS!

Time for another DGC episode! In February we played Life and Death, the hyper-realistic, hyper-difficult surgery simulator by The Software Toolworks, published in 1988.

Florian ("rnlf") is back hosting this episode, but didn't play the game at all, so he's just posing lots of uninformed questions to the other participants in this show: our regular host Martijn ("Tijn") and recurring guests Richard ("Pix") and David ("DavidN").

* Foone's Death Generator for Life and Death

* Walkthrough of the game - probably the only way to play it and staying sane.
