The SNES Podcast #61 — Star Ocean

In this episode Greg and George look at another Japanese only SNES game — Star Ocean, a RPG with a sci-fi setting strongly inspired by Star Trek and the start of a great and popular series. This game is easily found online as a translated ROM done by fans or there’s a remake that was released in the west for the PSP. We discuss the history of the game and the series, how the game plays, how it compares to others in the series, and if it holds up today! Any questions, comments, feedback, etc. can be left on our FB page or e-mailed to and as always thanks for your support!

Memory Jogger Poscast Episode 3 – Nickelodeon

Episode 3 of the new Memory Jogger Podcast is all about our Nickelodeon memories! Jason and Wyatt reminisce about shows from the early ’80s that we remember watching as young kids up through the early 90s and our high school years. We touch on everything from cartoons to game shows to sketch comedies broadcasted on the cable network. We also talk about how we discovered TV shows from the ’70s, ’60s, and ’50s through watching Nick at Nite.

ANTIC Interview 258 – Bruce Frumker: APX Memory Match, Cleveland Museum of Natural History

Bruce Frumker: APX Memory Match, Cleveland Museum of Natural History

Bruce Frumker is author of Memory Match, a memory game that was published by Atari Program Exchange. It was first available in the winter 1982-1983 APX catalog. As part of his job at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Bruce created interactive, laser-disc based exhibits that used Atari 8-bit computers. He wrote an article about that project, “An Atari-based Interactive Laser Videodisc System”, which appeared in the March 1989 issue of A.N.A.L.O.G. Computing magazine. Bruce was also co-founder of the Atari Computer Enthusiasts of Cleveland.

This interview took place on September 15, 2016.

“…Sounds really Rube Goldberg, but the thing worked and it produced a series of exhibits that visitors enjoyed … all controlled by the Atari.”

130 – Keystone Kapers by Activision

Happy Gluttonous Shopping Season everyone! Please be sure to visit your local mom and pop stores this season, they’ll feel good and you will too. Today I am discussing Keystone Kapers by the one and only Activision! I apologize for the refrigerator this episode, it sounded really loud and distracting on my end, so I hope you don’t hear it. Next up on the show will be Mr. Do by Coleco, and I’ll also throw in 3 Coleco games that had part numbers but never made it to programming, at least not that we know of. If you have any comments on Mr. Do or any game I’ve already covered (say, Mousetrap fer instance), please send it to me at Also, if you have any Christmas or holiday memories of really any kind that you’d like to share, I would love to hear them! Please send those to me by December 16th. Thank you for listening everyone!

Egg Nog (makes 1 gallon, cut it down to the quantity you like)

2 quarts half and half
1 dozen (I use large)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (DON’T USE THE FAKE STUFF, I WILL FIND YOU)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup rum
1 cup brandy
1 cup bourbon

Beat eggs in a blender until frothy and lemon yellow colored. Add sugar, vanilla, and salt and blend well. Pour into a large container (save your gallon milk jugs!) and add the remaining ingredients. Shake well to combine. PUT THE CAP ON FIRST. Sprinkle some nutmeg in there if you like that. Do NOT sprinkle pumpkin pie spice in there (see vanilla extract). Don’t worry about cooking it, all of the alcohol will take care of whatever salmonella is in the eggs. I’m still here, aren’t I? Refrigerate unused portion and shake well before you serve it again. Unused portion, that’s a good one. Enjoy! :)
