Description

After an unintentional hiatus, Avery and Gwyn return to journeying through the history of the Links series of games. Today's major digression is a rabbit-hole dive into software piracy in the early 90s and poor academic rigour. We discuss Links 386 and Microsoft Golf 2.0, before finally sitting down and playing Microsoft Golf 3.0!


Ranking: Birdie!
