Episode 32 – Coconuts & Cosmic Creeps by Telesys

In this week’s episode I talk about the 3rd party company Telesys, and two of their games, Coconuts and Cosmic Creeps. Both are enjoyable games, but there’s not a whole lot of info available for this company. I certainly make up for that in listener emails! Also, I am trying to get away from having a script for my shows, because it is extremely time-consuming to write and I don’t read as well as I would like. This week’s show is virtually script free; please bear with me on this, in order to get better I have to practice, and it will get better, it’s just going to take some time! I hope you understand and can get past my stammering that I didn’t edit out of this episode. Next week I’ll be doing two more Star Wars games, Death Star Battle and Ewok Adventure. After that it’s Bowling and Sky Diver by Atari, Tennis and Laser Blast (paging Rob O’Hara) by Activision, Circus Atari and Superman by Atari, King Kong and Jawbreaker by Tigervision, and all three of the Konami games, Pooyan, Strategy X and Marine Wars. Please send your thoughts and memories of these games or anything you’d like relating to the 2600 to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Text or audio, your choice, but try to keep it clean; I had a lot of people working blue this week! Well, not really. Thank you all so much for listening and have a great week!

Episode 31 – Miniature Golf & Human Cannonball by Atari

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these two games this week! Not everyone feels the same as I do, and that’s okay. To each their own. No audio submissions, but lots and lots of emails! And I even remembered all of them this time! Go me! Join me next week as I discuss Telesys and two of their games, Cosmic Creeps and Coconuts. Upcoming games include Star Wars Death Star Battle and Ewok Adventure by Parker Brothers, Bowling and Sky Diver by Atari, Tennis and Laser Blast by Activision, Circus Atari and Superman by Atari, and King Kong and Jawbreaker by Tigervision. If you’d like to send me stories about any of these games, you can send them in text or mp3 form to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. You guys rock, thank you for listening!

This week I appeared on episode 19 of the Throwback Reviews podcast, and we talked all about the Atari 2600 of all things. You can check the show out here. I had a hard time getting used to listening to myself talk while I edit. Listening to yourself talk with other people is even weirder.
