Hi there! This week I discuss two more of Tigervision's Atari 2600 cartridge output, Threshold and River Patrol. River Patrol is SUPER RARE L@@K. And they're not kidding. The next episode will be on March 4th and will be about Ram It and Fast Food by Telesys, and will also have the last installment of Willie's FergQuest contest! Upcoming games will include Brain Games and Frog Pond by Atari; Megamania and Sky Jinks by Activision; Cosmic Avenger, Smurf: Rescue in Gargamel's Castle, and Carnival by Coleco; Realsports Volleyball and Realsports Soccer by Atari; and Super Cobra and Reactor by Parker Brothers. If you have any memories to share about these or any of the games I've already covered, please send them to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thank you for listening!

Hi there, thanks for your patience. This week's episode deals with the 'myths" of Mythicon! See what I did there?

Upcoming games include Threshold and River Patrol by Tigervision; Fast Food and Ram It by Telesys; Brain Games and Frog Pond by Atari; Megamania and Sky Jinks by Activision; and Cosmic Avenger, Smurf: Rescue in Gargamel's Castle, and Carnival by Coleco.

You can win a Star Raiders cart with manual, touch pad controller, and overlay!

I will take entries until 11:59 PM EST January 20th. Next week will be Okie Dokie and Stell-A-Sketch by homebrew programmer Bob Colbert. In the following weeks I will be profiling  orcerer, Firefly, and Starfox by Mythicon; Hangman and Roadrunner by Atari; Threshold and River Patrol by Tigervision; Fast Food and Ram It by Telesys; and Brain Games and Frog Pond by Atari.

This episode was totally unplanned (you can tell by listening) and I lay the blame at the feet of No Quarter podcast. I just wanted to talk about arcade games for a bit, so here it is. I hope you can get some enjoyment out of it. Also, if you have Christmas memories or feedback for Toyshop Trouble, please get it to me by the 19th to be included in the show. You can send it to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thanks everybody, enjoy your week!

Today I am discussing in horribly long detail Raiders of the Lost Ark by Atari. This is the result of 2 weeks of research and 3 hours of recording, probably the most I've put into a show so far. I really hope you enjoy it and don't get too bored. Once again, your feedback makes the show better and I thank you for that. No show next week due to cookies. The Christmas memories episode will come out the week of Christmas. Additionally I will be looking at the homebrew title Toyshop Trouble, which is really a great game. Unfortunately I don't have the cash to buy this right now, nor would it get here in time if I did. But I need to start covering Christmas games, so I should be able to get this one done in time. Please send me your Atari Christmas memories and any feedback for Toyshop Trouble by December 19th for it to be included in the show. You can send that to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thank you all so much for listening!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you celebrate that sort of thing. Thank you for your patience waiting for a new episode, it will be much worse this month. :(  Speaking of new episodes, next week I will be looking at Raiders of the Lost Ark, by Atari. I am very glad that I made that its own show, I already have 12 pages of notes just on the manual and hint sheets! It will probably be a long show, so hopefully that will tide you over for awhile. GET IT, TIDINGS! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry. After Raiders I most likely won't be doing anymore games until 2015, but that is tentative. Also, please send me your Christmas memories by December 19th so I can record the Christmas memories show that weekend. Please don't take me for one of those militant Christmas people, I just didn't get any Hanukkah or Kwanzaa memories last year. If you have some, please send them to me at 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. I hope to get another show's worth of Christmas stories, I think last year's was awesome. Thanks for listening everyone!
