Episode 47 – Computer Corridor, He-Man, and Loco-Motion by M Network

This week’s episode is about the M-Network games Masters of the Universe: The Power of He-Man, Loco-Motion, and Computer Corridor. Computer Corridor was in my list as Computer Revenge, which I didn’t find in my initial research, but I happened upon it while I was doing the research for this show. Hence my adding it at the last minute. But it was never finished like Loco-Motion was, so you’re not missing much. Extra special thanks to Jeff Ratcliff for answering my questions this week, thank you Jeff! Next week, Cosmic Ark and No Escape by Imagic. Upcoming games include Dodge ‘Em and Missile Command by Atari; Space Cavern and Racquetball by Games by Apollo; Blueprint and Solar Fox by CBS Electronics; Stampede and Ice Hockey by Activision; and Othello and RealSports baseball by Atari. You can send your memories of these games and any Atari VCS/2600 memories to me at 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. I read everything on the show! Thanks everyone for downloading and listening, it makes me happy. :)

RCR Episode 66

Panelists: Carrington Vanston (hosting), Paul Hagstrom, Earl Evans, Michael Mulhern, and Myles Wakeham

Host’s Topic: The Way We Weren’t

Things didn’t have to be the way they are. We pick a handful of turning points (hardware, software, business decision, etc.) and imagine they did not happen, or happened differently. What kind of alternative computing future could we have found ourselves in instead?

Episode 46 – Maze Craze and Video Checkers by Atari

I have to apologize for this episode folks. I think my microphone is going bad, there was a hum that was pretty prevalent through the show and it made me very sad. I tried using the noise reduction on it 3 times but it’s still there. It sticks out like a sore thumb to me, maybe you won’t hear it as much as I do. Hopefully. I’m not very happy with this but there’s nothing I can do until I get a new microphone, which is on its way. I am sorry for the inconvenience. Next week I’ll be looking at He-Man and the Locomotion prototype by M-Network. I played He-Man a bit today and I am finding it very frustrating. I will do better as the week goes on, I think. Upcoming games include Cosmic Arp (heh) and No Escape by Imagic, Dodge ‘Em and Missile Command by Atari, Racquetball and Space cavern by Games by Apollo, Blueprint and Solar Fox by CBS Electronics, and Ice Hockey and Stampede by Activision. Send your stories and memories to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thank you guys for your patience and for listening!
