Dang!, got a editing error in there.  played the colecovision cabbage patch doll commercial twice with a beep beep beep beep in between.   That will teach me to pay more attention editing :)

I got my Colecovision when I was 12 for Christmas. It totally beat my previous game system, the Odyssey 2. It would be my 2nd Video Game system of my life. All morning I played Cosmic Avenger and Donkey Kong, two great games that kept me playing for hours upon hours.

If you can record this in a audio clip and any other coleco memories, send it on over to colecovisionspodcast@gmail.com and it will be added to the show :)

IMO leave the swapmeet finds in there, keep it a regular segment! It was a good part of RGR when featured, but I think SoCal spun it off into Youtube's "Big Game Huntef" series. Well, I dont watch much Youtube, so I dont even know if it's kept current. Regardless, the segment still works w/out video.

& Willie's amazement & childlike wonder remind me of a kid on Christmas Day! His verbal reactions only add to the enjoyment- like listening to a play-by-play of 4th of July fireworks.

"Oohh! Aahh! Wow! Thats great! Awesome!"

ok then, swap meet finds will be a regular segment :)  it was kind of fun to talk about and see each other stuff.  I have gotten quite a bit of positive feedback about it (was worried to leave it in there to begin with as it was not really coleco or colecovision related).   But Socal and I have such a great friendship we interact with each other quite well :)    Now if he would just not hold my spare colecovision hostage :) (I am telling mom socal!)

If anyone would like to be put on the schedule to be a guest host on the show and join in all the shenanigans, drop me a PM or email me at colecovisionspodcast@gmail.com

 

If you wish to be on, let me know what two colecovision games you like and a classic coleco toy :)

 

Currently I have Paul Nurminen from the Intellivisionaries down to be on the show for the June episode :)    the May episode is still open, but since we are introducing a new host for the show I figure I would leave that one open and start the 4th host beginning with the June episode.

I've listened to the first couple of episodes and they are awesome!

 

It was fun listening to you guys playing a game and cussing away... good stuff.  It's been a big reason as to why I am getting back into the Colecovision scene.  Thanks guys and who knows... maybe I'll join for an episode... would be kinda cool!

Would love to have you on King!  What are some of your favorite games on the system?  I can put you down on the list for when we get to that particular game.  We had to stop doing the live play, mainly due to time constraints now that we have three hosts.  but I plan on doing some live streaming sometime in the future when I attempt my high score run for the podcast :)
