Pac & Pal is also available on one of the Jakks Plug & Play NAMCO joysticks, it has 12 games, an excellent twisty stick for Pole Position, & Xevious is an unplayable mess.

IIRR it's the one BEFORE the one that looks like a Pac-Man.


Yeah, I hate fart jokes too. That type of humor is just below the belt.

Yes, Sean and Jim are back ALREADY with another new episode! Listen to the hosts discuss Las Vegas, record collecting...oh, and maybe an arcade game or two.

IIRR- If I remember right
IIRC- If I recall correctly

Inky- glad you're enjoying the SA Controller

Dauber- I knew your Vegas story was about to go sour when you said the Pinball HoF was on Fremont.
It's on Tropicana!


Peter Weller also starred in "Cat Chaser". He was RoboCop 2 as well but bailed for part 3, Robert John Burke took over.

(the original RoboCop wasnt 90s, it was 1987) it was my favorite movie until Die Hard came out a summer later.

No RoboCop? No Running Man? Wow, Dauber's missed some good movies.

I played Robocop at the local corner store when it was current, and I remember thinking even then that the game just didn't do much for me, but I dropped my allowance into it anyway.  In retrospect, I can see that, in the late 80s, so long as new arcade games had flashy graphics and sounds, we'd be drawn to them like mosquitos to a bug zapper no matter how bad they were. 

 

A few years ago, some other podcast was talking about Robocop (No Quarter maybe?), which prompted me to play through the game from start to finish on my MAME cabinet just to see what 25+ years of aging has done to the game.  Unsurprisingly, the game has aged about as gracefully as Keith Richards; I think it's absolutely dreadful.  It feels kind of like an even worse incarnation of Bad Dudes, insofar as such an atrocity is even possible to realize.

 

I really dig Smash TV, though.  I'd like it even more if the "fast movement" power up were active all the time, but in my estimation, Smash TV is somewhat of a diamond-in-the-rough title for an era of arcades when gameplay tended to fall by the wayside in favor of audiovisual bombast.

Okay, okay, we get it: Sean needs to see more movies. But hey, listen to him discuss a classic dungeon game and a landmark racing game with Jimmy G, the man with a message. Or an awkward limp. We don't remember for sure.

What is the sound of one hand clapping? Why, it's the next installment of the witty, irreverent, and third adjectiveless Pie Factory Podcast. Sean and Jim go all Williams on y'all for the last episode during meteorological spring; see you in June! (Yes, we're watching you!)
