For the first time EVER, the guys from Pie Factory are back with discussion on the games you see in the title of this episode. A couple of shooty-powy games. One from the earth, one from the water. (They’re trying to get shooty-powy games from the other two ancient elements, too; patience, friends, patience.) If nothing else, this is CERTAINLY the very last episode of the podcast to be released during the month of May 2023, but we make no guarantees.
Episode 137: Super Cobra and Silk Worm
Episode 137 is out, so listen to it NOW! Chop-chop! (See what we did there?) Silk Worm, Super Cobra, Midwest Gaming Classic, geography, and other such topics are discussed in this mammoth blockbuster installment of Pie Factory Podcast.
Episode 136: Exerion and Fast Freddie
Happy spring, Pie Factorians! We hope you spring…fast…and, uhh…we can’t make a really bad pun out of Exerion right now, but…well, just listen!
Episode 135: Assault and Vindicators
Welcome to the 2023, they’re calling it this year. Sean and Jim offer up their thoughts and experiences on these particular games because, well, they’re arcade video games. That’s why we’re all here, right?
We hope you enjoy this episode. Jim and Sean believe it’s the best episode they’ve produced all year.
Pie Factory Podcast’s Holiday Greetings
As a storm closes in on Pie Factory Headquarters, Jim and Sean are hunkering down, eating razzleberry pie and playing MAME while lying in a manger as visions of Mr. Hot Dog and Mr. Pickle dance in our heads.
Episode 134: Port Man and Arkanoid
A new dawn brings a new day. A new day brings a new episode of Pie Factory Podcast (sometimes). In Episode 134, Jim and Sean discuss an obscure Pac-Man clone and a side-scrolling shoot-’em-up in which you defend the planet against mutant spiders. We hope you enjoy this deep, thoughtful discussion. (Please note: Pie Factory Podcast does not guarantee 100% accuracy in episode descriptions.)
Episode 133: S.T.U.N. Runner and Hard Drivin’
Jimmy G and Sean introduce a spoooooooky new episode during this spooooooktacular season!! Mwahahaahaahahahaa!!! In this haunting installment they discuss a couple of scaaaaaaaaary spooky games (that is, if you find racing games spooky).
Episode 132: Loco Motion and Amidar
Look, we don’t care that arcadehistory(dot)com and Wikipedia put a hyphen between “Loco” and “Motion.” You know why? ‘Cuz on the marquee there is no hyphen. So we’re not putting one there. Don’t believe us? Look it up! See?…SEE?!?!!?!?
Episode 131: Snake Pit and Wacko
School’s in, kids! It’s time for Sean and Jim to school you on a couple of games from the early-ish ’80s. That is, old-school games. Games that you may have played after school. The only thing more appealing than this episode would be a school of fish. School.
Midwest Gaming Classic 2022 recap
We’re not quite ready yet to present you with what we learned about Wacko and Snake Pit, but in the mean time, here are Sean’s thoughts on this year’s Midwest Gaming Classic. (Jim says hi.)
