Show Notes

To start off the 4th season, we chose four games to play and discuss : Early Atari Coin-ops, Avalanche, Fire Truck, Super Bug, and Dominos. We also discuss a very early Electronic games magazine article on “Games we hope we’ll never see”. They were mostly wrong.

Starting with this episode we will also have a companion video with us live discussing the games and items that need more visual evidence.
