The SNES Podcast #56 — WIng Commander

In this episode Greg and George take a look at another PC to SNES conversion, this time Chris Robert’s groundbreaking combat flight sim from 1990 Wing Commander! We discuss the differences in the port, a rough history of the series, how the game plays, and how it holds up today. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, etc. please comment on our FB page or send a e-mail to the SNES Podcast at thesnespodcast@yahoo.com Thanks in advance.

127 Part 1 – Escape From The Mindmaster by Starpath

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 2600gamebygame@gmail.com. Thanks so much for listening!

ANTIC Interview 234 – Steve Robinson: Diggerbonk and Bean Machine

Steve Robinson: Diggerbonk and Bean Machine

Steve Robinson is the author of two games that were published by Atari Program Exchange: Diggerbonk and Bean Machine. Diggerbonk was first available in the spring 1983 APX catalog. Bean Machine first appeared in the summer 1983 APX catalog, where it won third prize in the Entertainment category.

This interview took place on June 13, 2016. A video version of this interview is available, check the show notes at AtariPodcast.com for the link.

In it, we talk about Jack Palevich whom I previously interviewed.

Teaser quote: “When they first published the game, they took the wrong version. I sent them the wrong version, not knowing that it had a bug in it. And — I got third prize anyway.”

Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by. We have a super fun show ahead of us this week! We start off a talk between me and Iceberg that turns ugly, as they often do and then we move onto a VHS Review of a movie I saw called Moonwalkers with Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame.

Then we move onto the main event where I run down a list of my Top Five Candy Bars! OF ALL THE TIMES!!! It’s a ton of fun and not to be missed.

For the final segment I spend a bit of time talking about Sizzlean. Do you remember that weird Bacon-Like Product? I sure do and I share some memories in detail…

It’s a great show like always, Make sure to tell a friend and make sure to stop by SupportTheReport.com and check out how you can get the ISR Supertape VHS Tape! It’s totally worth it! Just do it already!
