The first episode of a new Atari 8-bit podcast, Player/Missile, is available at
It should be in iTunes soon. I'm going to look at games and classic magazines that covered the Atari 8-bit systems, and go chronologically. This first episode is an introduction, and next episode I'll start covering 1979. My goal is to review one game per episode as well, and for the first episode I'm going to review Star Raiders.
Sort of like Ferg's 2600 game-by-game podcast, I'll be looking for feedback from folks about the games that I'll talk about, so I'll announce the games in advance if you'd like to send in stories about the games.
I'm looking forward to playing some of these games again, and maybe finding games I missed. If you have any suggestions, let me know!
