ANTIC Interview 323 – Orson Scott Card, Compute! Books

Orson Scott Card, Compute! Books Orson Scott Card is a Hugo Award winning, best-selling science fiction author, perhaps best known for his 1985 novel, Ender’s Game. But we’re not here to talk about that — because for about nine months, Orson Scott Card was an editor at Compute! Books, where we worked on several books about the Atari 8-bit and other computer platforms. His work appears in Compute!’s Third Book of Atari and Compute!’s Second Book of Atari Graphics. He also wrote extensively for Compute! magazine, primarily about computer games. His FontByter and ScreenByter graphics utilities for the Atari computers were published in Compute! His short story The Lost Boys features a character that plays games on an Atari computer. This interview took place on January 5, 2018. A “>video version of this interview is also available. Teaser quote: “I really miss programming. I miss those nights, starting after the kids were in bed — 8:30, 9 o’clock — just solving problems … noticing that there was now light coming through the basement windows, and realizing that I had pulled an all-nighter … just debugging three minutes of a game.” “>Video version of this interview Card’s articles in Compute! magazine Home Computer Games Grow Up Card’s final column in Compute! Compute!’s Second Book of Atari Graphics Reading the Keyboard Codes in Compute!’s Third Book of Atari Bill Wilkinson interview Bev and Bryan Wilkinson interview Richard Mansfield interview

The Toys R Us Report Ep.142: My Big List Of Movies Plus Tons More! Star Wars Figures!

Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by. We have a super fun show ahead of us this week. We start off with some talk about the Earth Base and my office and how I moved stuff around.

From there we talk on a movie I saw called The Darkest Hour. It’s about Winston Churchill. I really dug it but the wife fell asleep for a minute.

Then it’s onto the main event of the show where we take a look at the big list of movies I saw over the last year. I took in 75. That’s not bad but I wanted a solid 100.. What can you do? I tried.

For the last segment we chat about a Star Wars figure I bought and some TV shows I’ve been watching…

The SNES Podcast #89 — Rival Turf

In this first episode of 2018, George and Greg look at another fighting game on the SNES, Rival Turf! Best known for it’s really bad box art, this game sought to cash in on the SF 2 craze of the early 90’s and did much better in Japan, where it had two official sequels. How did the game do in the States and how does it play? We discuss this and more in this episode! Any questions, comments, feedback, etc. can be left on our FB page or e-mailed to the snespodcast@yahoo.com and as always thanks for your support!

Geekfest Rants Ep. 330: Star Wars – The Last Jedi – The Review Strikes Back

Today on GeekFest Rants the Review Strikes Back as we take a second look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Join Carlos as he welcomes his son Kyle for a different perspective on this latest entry in the Star Wars saga.

What’s better than a 47 year old arguing with a 19 year old about the script of The Last Jedi? Are these films made for people of different ages? Will we ever drink milk again? Where will these films take us next?
