This weeks gaming podcast tackles the history of Full Throttle and the history of the SCUMM script system created for Maniac Mansion. We’re also hitting up some game news, talking a bit more about games that have changed our lives and taking to heart some great user comments.

This weeks question of the week is of the user-submitted style! Krud asks, “If you could only play four games (w/o new DLC for the foreseeable future), what four would you choose?”

    Full Throttle? Awesome! (I almost picked that as my all-time favorite game, but the bike fights annoyed me a bit, and are now unplayable on faster PC’s. [There might be a way to fix it via DOSBox, but if so, I haven’t figured out how. And I’ve tried.])

    Oh, I forgot to mention: that SCUMMVM you described? We had that for Betani’s iPaq PDA, and had installed both “Sam & Max Hit The Road” and “Full Throttle” on it. I was psyched about the idea of a “CD-ROM game” running on such a small device, though I realize anyone with a PSP or DS is shrugging, saying “Yeah? So?” 😉

    The stylus, however, does not work well for Full Throttle’s interface. ‘:(
