Hello, hello, hello!
In April we played Starflight, a game of hard to define genre, that is nonetheless pretty damn cool!
PODCAST EPISODE #17: STARFLIGHT
Starflight is a game from the very early days of DOS gaming. Still from a time when game genres were still a bit diffuse. So this game is a bit adventure, a bit RPG and a bit simulation. Apparently it's also been one of the main influences for Mass Effect. All those are reasons for us to check it out.
Joining the discussion with Martijn and Florian are Joshua (vede), Richard (Pix) and Tyler (Corgibuttz). Tyler was the one who suggested the game and has been playing it since his childhood, so he has a lot to tell us about it.

Yo yo yo!
Last March we played Duke Nukem 3D, so here's our podcast episode discussing this great game. But before we dive into that, here's a quick reminder that there's about a week left in April to check out the amazing Starflight, a space RPG from 1986. There's all sorts of cool stuff going on on the forums, so if you haven't already, please check them out now!
PODCAST EPISODE #16: DUKE NUKEM 3D
Now in March we celebrated our 1 year anniversary with the DOS Game Club. Last year we started off strong with the all-time favourite DOOM, so we were looking for a game that could compete with that and thus landed on DUKE NUKEM 3D.
Joining the discussion with Martijn and Florian is Matthew, known as "mgoddard" on the forums. He's been an active member for a while now, so it was great to have him on the show!

We've decided to accept voice messages from listeners for all future episodes. Our show is all about discussions and we try to invite people who seemed to be interested in our month's game to the show, but we figured, maybe some people don't want to be present for the whole recording, but still have something to contribute.
So, if you want to share your opinion, experience or trivia about the game we're going to cover in an upcoming episode, we're now accepting voice messages.
Simply record your message and e-mail it to us. Our address is: .
As we're getting ready to switch the site over from playing Duke Nukem 3D (which was our March game) to Starflight (which we'll play in April), we've got something special for you: an extra DOS Game Club podcast, celebrating our 1 year anniversary!
PODCAST EPISODE #15: 1 YEAR OF DOS GAME CLUB
We invited all of the regulars that were on the show during the past year. All in all it was pretty crowded, with no less than 7 people total on the show! Besides hosts Martijn & Florian, the following people were present: Marwane, Mike, David, Philipp & Raphael.
Now during the show, we decided to rank all the games that we've played in the past year. This got pretty crazy, as we were all editing the same document at the same time and people started to replace the real names with joke names, as if ranking all these games wasn't confusing enough to begin with 😀 If you're interested in a screenshot of the final list, you can find it here.
At the end of the episode, we played a fun quiz Philipp which had prepared. He also runs the DOS Quiz Twitter account, so if you want more DOS trivia, you can follow him there.

It's time for another DGC episode, but before we dive into that, a short reminder that it is still March and that means it's our anniversary and we are playing DUKE NUKEM 3D!
So go and play the game and talk to us about it on the forums! We use your input for the podcast episode and we also like to have people on the show who know more about the game than we do.
PODCAST EPISODE #14: TRANSARCTICA
But that's a story for next month. Last month, in February, we've played Transarctica, a somewhat strange game of undefined genre, published in 1993 by French studio Silmarils.
We were very happy to have our new DGC member Raphael ("evilteuton") on the show, who has been playing the game for 20+ years. He also shared a playthrough of the game on YouTube. It's an excellent Let's Play, you should definitely check it out.
This being a French game we're also very happy to have Marwane join us once again. And as always, Martijn and Florian are there as well.
