It’s that time again, by which I mean the time to listen to a middle aged wastrel play odd video games for your edification. In this second episode we’re taking a look at our very first Spectrum game, the oddly peurile Cosmic Wartoad.
Is there anything more delightful than a new podcast from a middle aged white man talking about old stuff? I hope not because in this podcast that’s exactly what I’m going to do. This is the only podcast that I’m aware of that allows you the listener to vicariously enjoy the thrill of playing ancient games solely through the medium of sound. Gasp in amazement as I paint a vivid word picture of what it’s like to huch, alone and unloved, over the very oddest games I can be bothered to find. So much fun you’ll genuinely wonder why no one has done this before. In this fist episode I’m taking a look at one of the first really big success stories in home consoles, the Atari 2600 and playing a game that, sadly, never actually made it as far as an official release.
