You Don’t Know Flack is back with another episode! In this episode, I wax nostalgic about my days with the Atari 2600. You’ll get to hear about many of the games I grew up playing, whether or not I still collect Atari 2600 games, and why Keystone Kapers holds special meaning to me. Also in this episode I experimented with some noise cancelling plug-ins, so I’d love to hear what you think about that.

This week’s episode makes me wonder why the heck I took on this project in the first place. It was a rough week, the Stellar Track manual kicked my butt. Like Beavis said, you gotta have stuff that sucks if you wanna have stuff that’s cool. Genius. Next week should be better, it will be Atlantis and Star Voyager by Imagic! Upcoming games include Space Jockey and Sneak n Peek by US Games, Basic Programming and Video Olympics by Atari, Skiing and Bridge by Activision, Breakout and Home Run by Atari, and Encounter at L5 and Warplock by Data Age. I’d love for you to send me your stories about these games, I read all of the submissions on the show! Send them to email@example.com. As always, thanks so much for listening!

It’s episode 20 and I’m talking about 20th Century Fox games for the first time. I wish I was smart enough to have planned that. Today’s games are Worm War 1 and Beany Bopper, both really fun games, I hope you had a chance to try them out. Next week will be Atari’s Stellar Track and 3D Tic Tac Toe. Stellar Track is a text adventure on the 2600, so that should be totally awesome! Upcoming games include Star Voyager and Atlantis by Imagic, Space Jockey and Sneak n Peek by US Games, Basic Programming and video Olympics by Atari, and Skiing and Bridge by Activision. Any stories or memories you have of these games can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll read it on the show. Thanks so much for listening, see you next time!
