Big Box Review #2: Wasteland (1988)



The next Big Box Review is now up: Wasteland for DOS from 1988.
(Yes, the YouTube thumbnail image is misleading. )

Thanks to everyone at Evil Avatar who watched and commented on the first video on Syndicate!

Very well done Mauricio.

Makes me long for the days of browsing the shelves at Egghead Software for games.

"Back when there was a Soviet Union" lol
Get the price tag off of your ruler! Seeing stickers on things drives me nuts.
Set the box down when showing system requirements! Holy earthquake batman!
This is the first video of yours I watched and I dug it. Thorough. When I saw that it was a review though, I expected to see a review of the game.
Anyways, I was entertained, thanks.

In your hand you have the game that made PC game big. Very few PC gamers actually know this. I ain't even a PC gamer but I recognize the awesomeness this game had. It is my second fav game of all time for many a reason.

I was hoping to see more of the actual game. I missed this when it came out, considering I was pretty young at the time

If it makes you feel better I was 5 when that game came out and I still feel old.

Oh, wait, that probably made it worse...

Really good video. I have enjoyed these and will wait patiently for a third.
