Episode 13 – Skeet Shoot & Space Chase

In this episode I look at Games by Apollo and two of their games, Skeet Shoot and Spacechase. These games are, well, not the greatest. Bear with me, the next few weeks will be dealing with better games. Next week is CBS Electronics’ Gorf and Wizard of Wor, and in 2 weeks, it’s Adventure! Send your stories and memories to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thank you so much for listening!

Episode 134: The OK Krackers

Episode 134 of You Don’t Know Flack tells the story of my pseudo Commodore 64 cracking group from the 1980s, the OK Krackers (OKK). (Listen to the episode to see why I used the word “pseudo”.) In this rambling excuse for an episode I end up reminiscing quite a bit about the days of trading games over the modem through BBSes.

Episode 133: Ninjas

This very special episode of You Don’t Know Flack is all about ninjas. From wanting to be a ninja in the 1980s to watching ninja movies and playing ninja-related video games, I cover it all in this deadly episode. To add ambiance and set the mood I recorded this episode out in the woods. Was that a good idea? You’ll have to listen and decide!

I added a bunch of Youtube links for this episode so be sure to check those out.
