Tonight is the tale of a game that we put off recording the show for weeks in the hopes of clearing up some technical difficulties. So while we do talk about Cthulhu, the show morphs into a general discussion about the preservation of video games, and what happens to these older titles that don’t quite function as intended on modern platforms. Additionally we talk a bit about emulation and how it might be the saving grace for especially the early cd based systems. We talk about this weird time in early FPS games where folks were willing to take chances and make something not entirely in the Call of Duty model. Given that this is the second of those games we have made a game club title… it seems like there was something interesting happening that it would be awesome to see again.
Topics Discussed - Technical Difficulties - Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth - Early FPS Titles - Early CD Rom games - Games Preservation - Emulation - December Game - Diablo II
