Yay! New episode!

 

Incidentally, per your (Sean's) request of listeners, I've been trying to come up with suggestions for a slick podcasting nickname that befits your sultry, video-games-after-dark FM radio DJ voice -- that comforting yet alluring baritone that has seen me, Alan Freed-like, through my youth...or at least the past two months.

 

In this respect, I'm sure I'm just a drop in the bucket, a lone individual in a sea of listeners all clamoring for a chance at nicknaming a Pie Factory host. That's just as well, as all I've been able to squeeze from the ol' synapses have been:

 

S. Court (pronounced "Escort," you see?)

 

Sean-O / Sean-O C.

 

S.C. Caster

 

Mort from Court

 

Pam Dauber

 

Randy Scouse

I think we have a winner!

Randy Scouse = "Horny Liverpudlian." I've never been to Liverpool.

Jim's excellent new slogan for the Twenty-First Century: "Tune in, turn on, drop out, SHUT UP!" Laughed my head off.

I actually ripped that off of George Carlin

After a brief hiatus, Pie Factory Podcast is back with Episode 7: Pac-Land and The Real Ghostbusters. We're sorry to have to tell you this.

NAMCO Anniversary (PS2/XB(?)/GC(?)) has the best Ms Pac-Man home version I've seen, & it has the "knock" sound when the ghosts bump in the 1st intermission. It's my go-to version for my Ms Pac-Man needs.

re: arcade Mario Bros- creatures DO NOT speed up upon completing a circuit through the game board (entering a bottom pipe & coming out the top). They DO speed up if they recover on their own, before you get to them.

As for the POW switch/button/block- if I remember right I read somewhere it regenerates after every 10 phases (yes, it's PHASES).

I can't download the newest episode from your website.  It seems to download OK but when I try to play it I get 'Playback Error',

How odd. It plays just fine for me. Maybe it depends on the type of player...?

Thanks!  I caught up on your podcast this last week and really am liking it...it was a little shaky, IMHO, the  first few episodes but you guys have gotten into a nice groove recently.  But then again, you could say that about my podcast. :P

 

And yeah, Chris, when I downloaded it on my PC it played fine. :ponder:  But I wanted it for my phone so I could listen to it at work. :)

Coin phase/bonus round- difficulty increases 2nd time, floors are icy & you have 5 seconds LESS to finish. 3rd time (phase 15) floors are icy AND turn invisible.

& you didnt mention the last "enemy"- water drops that freeze into falling icicles (phase 16)...guessing you didnt get that far?

CURSES!!!!

 

Okay, Inky swore up and down that what you said is exactly right. I swore up and down that no, it's when they wrap around. I had just played an actual machine for a while. I slipped Hyde a $5 to cut that part out.

 

Just tried in MAME, and....yup, Inky was right.

 

I AM finding that the enemies DO speed up after a certain amount of time passes...maybe that's where my confusion came in.

 

Unfortunately, this all came about AFTER we recorded episode 9, so errata will be in episode 10.

I found your pairing of these games to be especially astute, as I assumed that you'd heard or read (as I had) that Shigeru Miyamoto's manager, Gunpei Yokoi, wanted him to create a game similar to Joust.

 

http://www.gamasutra...Of_Miyamoto.php

 

Anyway, note that Mario's skidding was another element taken from Joust.

 

Great episode. Take off, eh!

Mario Bros is my 2nd fave arcade game, 30 yrs ago I spent a family vacation +/- mastering it w/ my cousin. Note the actual controls are also similar to Joust, a L/R joystick & single action (jump or flap) button.

Cant wait for the Xevious episode! It's been my favorite arcade game for 30+ yrs, & you'll see below in my sig I own one! It was down w/ a common ROM chip problem for months, but it got back on its feet (OK, levelers on the front & rollers on the back) just this past week with help from AA member madaracs.

I'm quite familiar with the game inside & out, so I hope you "hosers" do your homework on it. ;) :P :lol:

"Dear Xevious" by the Namco Beatles is one of the greatest things I've ever heard. That Hyde St. Pierre is some kind of wizard, I tell you.

Xevious was released on the NES also, and I prefer that version just slightly over the 7800 port.  In any case it's a great game.

 

Lost Tomb was covered on No Quarter way back, and they also commented on the weird feature of buying more whips.  I don't mind that, but then again, I play modern games as well as retro ones. :)

I forgot about the NES version of Xevious. There was also a Super Xevious on the NES, but I am not sure if it was only on the Playchoice10 cabinet.
