I was hoping for more great French dos games, but unfortunately it seems most of the podcasts are currently unavailable? Sadface :(
A great show!
I just found this looking for more on FMV gaming. I'm glad there is a show covering DOS games. I like the honest and lively discussion. Thanks for this. Keep up the great work! 😊
Easily one of the best retro gaming podcasts out there. Very informative and interesting. I was very young when I did most of my DOS gaming, so my memories are vague at best, but it's still fun to listen to him talk about the hardware and the games even if I personally never played some of them.
