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.
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.
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.)
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).
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?!?!!?!?
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.
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.)
If you’re the kind of person who likes stuff, well…you’re in the right place because episode 130 is certainly stuff! This time we stray from our usual format to talk about everybody’s favorite diagonally-scrolling platform shoot-’em-up, the long lost sequel to Dragon Ball Z: a little Atari game called Pong! Nobody will be seated during the last ten minutes of the episode.
We at Pie Factory Podcast have been hard at work to bring you a new savory, salty, and potentially sweet episode. So here, for about the 129th time, we present to you…an episode. A pumpful episode. So pump it up! The jam, the volume…if it’s pumpable, you’ll like this one!
Our love goes out to those suffering because of the situation in Ukraine, and in fact, our next Patreon payout will be donated to Doctors Without Borders for their team in Ukraine. (And we thank all of you for making this donation possible.) We hope in these dark times we can bring some enjoyment to our listeners.
