Computer Quest (200K subscriber milestone)

Visit the blog for the music list and FAQ: dasboschitt.blogspot.com Downloadable version at the WeGame account: www.wegame.com The 200000 subscriber milestone is here and considering it will be the last milestone video done (unless I were to somehow hit a million) it was made to be the best one yet. Remember that the map with the breakable wall is not in fact, rp_evocity_v2d and instead featured a replica house from that map created by Menderza. This map is not available for public download. Another thanks to Fox for the new widescreen monitor, which has finally fulfilled everyone’s HD demands!
