There’s episodes, and there’s episodes: both SVGA’s cohosts are hard at work to prepare the next installment of our retrogaming series, with Burnout: Paradise, but in the meantime, they decided to launch a new type of discussion, called DLCs.

One man. A world-spanning conspiracy. And something akin to bunny-hopping, but more like toad-hopping, and it’s probably quite bad for the knees and the legs. This is Splinter Cell.
You end up on a strange island. No one takes you by the hand. There’s no quest markers. Not many clues. Just one vague objective: understand. In 1993, Myst was a sensation. And 28 years later, this exploration and adventure game still holds up.
Grab your flak cannon and shoot away: in 1999, arena shooters were all the rage. Along with Quake III Arena, Unreal Tournament was the game to play for hours, be it against bots or, preferably, against other human players.
Robots, robots, and more robots. Oh, and explosions, of course! Published in 1997, Cavedog Interactive’s Total Annihilation helped defined the real-time strategy genre with its original mechanics and its scale. Prepare to fight for survival in this 8th episode of SVGA, your retro PC gaming podcast.
Are you scared of the dark? Do you have what it takes to fight demons, evil spirits and maleficient creatures? For Halloween, SVGA turns its head towards the excellent indie game FAITH.
Do you have what it takes to stop the Death Angel? What do you say about King’s Quest? Space Quest? Pfft! This is Police Quest, the 1987 game published by Sierra that gave you the opportunity to do some real police work. Buckle up, kid.
Pilots… to your starships! Hugo Prévost and Robert Hiltz buckle up and take to the stars in this 6th episode of the PC retrogaming pocast SVGA. Dust up your joystick, fire up your (really) old computer and prepare to blast Kilrathis and Vasudans.
Are you ready? Ready to rip, to tear, to kill dozens of monsters, to hear the sweet sound of that super shotgun firing two shells right into an imp’s face, transforming its head into a geyser of blood and gore? Welcome to Doom, probably the most influencial first-person shooter of all time.
