  1. Great episode as usual Joe :D. I had actually never played a Police Quest game…at least I thought I hadn’t until you revealed that SWAT was in the Police Quest pantheon.

    I remember my brothers and I got SWAT from a going out of business bookstore (of all places) in my hometown. We never got very far since the semi adventure style game play was not what we were used to (RTS, FPS, and SNES were more in our wheel house). At any rate it was nice to learn this insight and just goes to show why I visit the upper memory blocks each time you do a show. :)
