Episode 53 – Othello and RealSports Baseball by Atari

This week I talk about Othello and RealSports Baseball, the latter being the first silver label game that I’m discussing! Rick from the Intellivisionaries Podcast and I pitted our respective consoles against each other in Reversi/Othello, which you can watch on Youtube via the link below. Special thanks to Rick for suggesting this, and also for recording it and hosting it on the Intellivisionaries Youtube page! Next week I’ll be talking about Fast Eddie and Deadly Duck by Sirius/20th Century Fox. Upcoming games include Surround and A Game of Concentration (AKA Hunt ‘n’ Score) by Atari; Suicide Mission and Killer Satellites by Starpath; James Bond 007 and Gyruss by Parker Brothers; Codebreaker, Flag Capture & Video Chess by Atari; and Title Match Pro Wrestling and Skateboardin’ by Absolute. You can send your thoughts and memories of these games or any games I’ve already covered to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Your submissions are what make this show fun! Thank you everyone!
