RA 4201, Sword of Saros!

Finally, Part 2 of episode 127 is now available, featuring Sword of Saros by Starpath. From now on, each episode will feature one game and hopefully sometime in the future will be released weekly! I'm sure I'm going to regret that. Next time I'll be looking at Music Machine by Sparrow. Afert that, it will be Crazy Climber by Atari; Keystone Kapers by Activision; Mr. Do! by Coleco; Space Attack by M Network; Q8Bert by Parker Brothers; and Glib by Selchow and Wrighter. Any thoughts or comments on these games can be sent to me at Don't forget to check out the forums! Another great idea. Thanks so much for listening!

RA 4200, Escape From The Mindmaster!

So yeah, putting both games into this episode didn't work out, so you're only getting Escape From The Mindmaster this time. The next show will contain Sword of Saros and the feedback for both games. After that it will be one game per episode including feedback. Sorry about that. Speaking of feedback, if you have some for either or both of these games, please send it to me at Thanks so much for listening!

The Atari 10400 Game by Game Podcast Featuring the No Swear Gamer!

This is a special episode featuring Phil from the No Swear Gamer channel on Youtube and the Atari 7800 Game by Game podcast. Phil was nice enough to send me a large audio submission talking about all of the games since his last submission, so I made it into its own episode. Huge thanks to Phil for doing this, please help me say thank you by checking out his stuff. I also explain a little about what is next for this podcast. Thank you all very much for listening, I hope you enjoyed your summer!

CX 2682, Krull!

Part 2 of episode 126 is all about Krull by Atari. Thanks for your continued patience with me, I wasn't feeling great this week. The next episode will hopefully have 2 games, those being Sword of Saros and Escape From The Mindmaster by Starpath. Like I mentioned in the show, I am shooting to publish this 2 weeks from this past Wednesday, but if it does get delayed, it should be the last time that happens for awhile. Again, thank you for your patience and for listening, it really means a lot to me.

CX 2681, Battlezone!

Yes, another split episode. I just wanted to get something out there, this is the best way for me to do that right now. Maybe it's the way I should be doing this, who knows? That was the original plan. At any rate, this episode is all about Battlezone by Atari, and next time I will cover Krull and the feedback for both games. So if you have any thoughts on either game, you still have time to send it to me at Thank you so much for listening!

This is part 2 of episode 125, where I discuss California Games by Epyx, and read and listen to your feedback on all the Epyx games. Next up is Battlezone and Krull, both by Atari.
