Greetings Blockers!

This week we travel back to World War I with the great 1990 Dynamix/Sierra combat flight sim, Red Baron.

Before we get to that, it’s news time:

GameTrailers.com is reporting that the original Wasteland will be included with the upcoming Wasteland 2. Pre-orders are available from the developer’s site.

The Steam Summer Sale is on! Lots of great deals to be had here including quite a few games I’ve covered on the podcast. It runs until July 22nd socheck it out while it lasts.

Finally on to the main topic, Red Baron. As usual, I talk genre, story, gameplay, tech specs and a bit of development story. I also inadvertently provide a lesson on the basic mechanics of flight!

  1. “Kinda like a canvas tent with wings.” That line alone made the podcast worth listening to, I was cracking up! I was skeptical about a one-man podcast at first, but I have to say, you keep pulling it off, week after week. I don’t remember playing Red Baron but this was nonetheless a very interesting episode (the tech focus segment was great!).
    And you’re welcome, commenting is the least I can do! Your podcast is interesting, informative, insightful, I’m greatly enjoying it!!

    • You actually made me go back and listen to that ep again, I didn’t remember saying that!
