Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement

It's Wednesday night and we had a brand new episode of Arrow, titled 'Invasion!' (Season 5, Episode 8) which is apart of the four-night cross-over event, and of course we're doing a little recap and review!

REVIEW In the early 90s, I was more a PC gamer than a console one, and one of my favorite games was Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade (the Graphic Adventure), from LucasArts, and while it was published in 1989, I didn't play it for the first time until I think 1996... and I have a lot of fond memories playing this up in my room, working my way all the way up until I was able to retrieve the Grail.
That said, the game itself is more of an 'alternate take' on The Last Crusade, filling out certain familiar scene from the movie with puzzles and alternate ways to get through things.
