Episode 3.5: Missile Command Redux and Pac-Man Arcade

Hello Again, Intrepid Listeners!

As promised, our Episode 3.5 to make up for lost time. Or the time we ran out of on the first run. In this episode, we have Capt. Bob giving his mea culpa to the listeners and doing what he should have in the first place, describing the golden age classic, Missile Command. David covers the very worthy homebrew, Pac-Man Arcade. And David, Bob, and Glen get left in the eBay bidding dust by three very determined bidders for a new in the box, never touched, Atari 5200 Supersystem.

All this, and a bit more, on The Atari 5200 Podacst!

ANTIC Interview 270 – Ed Kelly, Edladdin Controllers

Ed Kelly, Edladdin

Hello, welcome to a special interview-only episode of Antic, the Atari 8-bit podcast. My name is Randy Kindig. This interview is with Ed Kelly of Edladdin. Edladdin produces a fantastic family of controllers for the Atari 2600, Atari 7800, Atari Flashback, and classic 8-bit computers. I met Ed at VCF Southeast in 2016 and was so impressed by his controllers that I later bought one and am very happy with it. They are fully customizable and are very rugged. This is likely the last controller you’ll need. I sat down with Ed and we discussed how his company got started, what controllers they produce and what the future looks like.

This interview took place on December 4, 2016.

Episode 68 – Bomberman World (Arcade)

Bomberman World is part of a long running series of games that have touched many different consoles. We focus on the arcade version. Find out is we like it or think its trash.

Tv talk is back and we talk about the changes with The Walking Dead and the Netfix original series Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Is it as good as the original movie?

133 – Q*Bert by Parker Brothers

Thanks for your patience for this new episode on Q*Bert by Parker Brothers. Q*Bert is a fantastic arcade game and has a great port on the 2600, as well as many other systems! I hope you enjoy the episode. Next up in 2 weeks will be Glib by Selchow and Wrighter, the only adult word game released for the 2600 (I guess Hangman and Word Zapper are word games, but in my opinion they’re skewed toward kids). If you’ve played Glib and would like to share your thoughts on the game, please send them to me at 2600gamebygame@gmail.com. Thank you so much for listening!

RCR Episode 146

Panelists: Paul Hagstrom (hosting) and Carrington Vanston (not hosting)

Host’s Topic: The next new old thing

So, we’re kind of experts on something. Or we’re familiar with something. But part of the fun of the hobby is seeing what else there was that we never got involved in. Now that we have our new modern brains, what old things are you interested in going back and learning? (Forth? Cobol? Inform? Mainframes? Alternative platform?) Is our modern brain going to make it easier?
