Last weekend I was able to get to the Too Many Games video game convention in Pennsylvania. This is just a short episode about what I saw and did there. It was a lot of fun and I will be there again next year, hope to see you there!

This episode was suggested by Matt (@stormsurge) and will be part of a continuing series over the life of the podcast. The special announcement is that I will be slacking off the podcast this summer. ;)   Well, kind of. Please stay tuned to the episode for details on that. Thanks for listening everyone, see you soon!

These are the coasters that I mentioned in the podcast (you can also see them on Twitter and Facebook, I posted them back in 2014):

Hey everyone, thanks for your patience this week. This episode is about two of Activision's early 1983 titles, Oink and Dolphin. Next on the podcast I will be looking at Lost Luggage and Shark Attack (Lochjaw) by Apollo. If you have any feedback on these or any of the games I've covered, please send it to 2600gamebygame@gmail.com. You can check the calendar on the blogpage for the upcoming shows, I have updated it. A bit. I have some vacation time coming up, and while I don't have an episode listed for those weeks, I am going to try to get something out then. I also have an upcoming project, we are putting in a new floor in my gameroom/podcasting room, but I'm hoping that won't disturb the schedule. Much.

Thanks for listening everyone!

This week I cover two more games in the RealSports line, Tennis and Basketball. Basketball was an unfinished prototype that saw the light of day near the turn of the century. I think there is only one more RealSports title left, Boxing, which oddly came out much later than the rest. Next time I'll be discussing the Activision games Oink! and Dolphin, so if you have any thoughts on these games (or the RealSports games, I expected the feedback to be a bit light and I was not mistaken), please send it to me at 2600gamebygame@gmail.com. You will not regret it! Thank you so much for listening, and this Sunday, please say hi to your mother for me.

Hi there, today's episode deals with Tutankham and Sky Skipper, both arcade ports from Parker Brothers. Both games are... interesting. Next time I'll be talking about two Realsports titles, Tennis and Basketball. Basketball did not come out at the time, but it is available. If you have any thoughts on these games or games I've covered previously, please send them to me at 2600gamebygame@gmail.com. Thanks so much for listening!

This week I'm looking at two of the CBS Electronics Ram Plus games, Tunnel Runner and Omega Race, as well as the Booster Grip controller! Thanks for your patience this week, and thanks again for the donations, it is greatly appreciated. I think I have settled on a mixer so I can record the sounds from the 2600 itself, and also, I think I may be able to use that to play the audio submissions live so you can hear me react to them. My current mixer is a Kitchen Aid, so that one won't work. Next episode will be about Sky Skipper and Tutankham by Parker Brothers, so if you have any feedback on those games or games I've already covered, please send it to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net, or 2600gamebygame@gmail.com. Thank you so much for listening, you guys are the best!!

Hi everyone, this week's extremely short compared to the episodes lately episode is about Cosmic Swarm and Room of Doom, both by Commavid. I hope that you will try these games out if you haven't already, I think they deserve a chance. Next time I'll be discussing the Atari games Dig Dug and Dukes of Hazzard, and also the un-numbered Stunt Cycle, which was turned into a Dukes of Hazzard game after the fact. Do you have any feedback on these games or games that I've already covered? If so, please send it to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net or 2600gamebygame@gmail.com. Thank you so much!
