ARGcast #81: Point and Click Adventure Games with Nathan Ortega

This week’s episode kicks off with a slew of news starting with the latest word on a Sonic the Hedgehog movie with Deadpool director Tim Miller on board. We then chat about the announcement of Capcom lending their titles to the Super Retro-Cade, Nintendo supposedly coming out with a Game Boy Classic Edition, and official confirmation that Mario punches Yoshi in Super Mario World. No wonder they fight in Smash Bros!

The Stage of History gets our point and click juices flowing with the highly loved and influential King’s Quest, and also the all FMV Sierra hit The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery. There’s also game codes we give away that you’ll want to get your hands on, plus the shortest game of Random Select ever! David really needs to make this harder…. Perhaps YOU can offer us suggestions.
