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.

The Next Episode – take 2!
(Broken link in the original feed…sorry about that!)
We’re calling this “the next episode” because it’s not the previous episode. It’s also not the first episode nor the last episode, unless something REALLY weird happens. Look…it’s an episode. And we actually remembered to mention our RedBubble store.
Episode 121: Double Dragon and Kung-Fu Master
One game is about kids who answer trivia questions and run through a chocolate and slime filled obstacle course. The other is about a New Jersey kid who moves to California and is bullied by martial arts jocks. What could the theme be? Only you, the listener, will find out.
