What's In A Game? Ep2

In the second episode, Jon and John cover Roguelike games. We take the time machine back to 1984 to talk about playing Rogue on a local university Unix system. Monsters are only limited by the number of letters in the alphabet. Nethack takes Rogue to the third power. Diablo moves away from ASCII to color graphics. We make it through the podcast before the Sysload reaches 3.
