Point and click games have never been at the top of my Christmas card list, but there's a select few I grew up playing with. Maniac Mansion was probably my go-to (even though it scared the hell out of me)!

I know I'm not the only one that was scared of it either. You control a bunch of high school kids and set out to save a kidnapped girlfriend from a creepy mansion. The game revolves around solving puzzles and utilizing each kid's unique skill set. It's incredible creative, pretty damned funny, and almost impossible for a feeble brain like mine.

My buddy Daniel grew up horsing around in mansions as well, and he gives me a call this week to talk about one of the most iconic retro PC games ever made. We had a great time laughing about how tough some of these puzzles were, and dunking on Jeff because the poor guy is as useless as I am.

And before we put stuff in microwaves, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro!

This week, someone talks about discovering the greatness that is the GBA. A listener corners me over something I said back on RTG #157. And is PS Plus Premium worth it??

Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 point and click classics: Sam & Max Hit The Road, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and The Secret of Monkey Island.
