A YouTube star Clint Basinger (of Lazy Game Reviews) joins yours truly to discuss data disks, add-ons and other various expansions for DOS games. We also trail off into other topics along the way.
Manhunter games were always special. Not only because of their unique approach to adventure gaming, but also because of their detailed, grotesque and often gruesome art.

Enjoy and try not to get grossed out by an occasional corpse.

On the brand new episode of The Space Quest Historian show Troels, myself and Christian Giegerich discuss Space Quest releases in foreign territories. Well, just Russia and Germany, actually.
