Whoa...it's late Saturday morning and I totally forgot there's a new episode out. (And I'm the host. Seriously!?!?) But the Moon Cresta episode has dropped! An obscure arcade shoot-em-up gets the 7800 homebrew treatment from one of the system's most highly respected developers.

Episode 24 — Crystal Quest…or Bentley Bear’s Crystal Quest…or Crystal Quest featuring Bentley Bear…or whatever! — is out!

In this episode Sean takes an in-depth look at a recently-released, highly-anticipated sequel to Crystal Castles.

Hi, everybody! Sorry I'm late (well, this is coming out 14 hours later than I would have liked it to!), but...here's episode 25 - Astro Blaster!
 
Sega/Gremlin (or is it Gremlin/Sega?) gets some love from Sean in this look at another Bob DeCrescenzo classic, a conversion of a fairly obscure arcade game.

Help Sean celebrate the season with a very limited release homebrew as he waxes poetic about Christmas. Tap a spoon on your speaker, and maple syrup will be sure to ooze out.

We had HBO before we had cable(yes, a door to door salesman got it to us) and I do remember Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas. Haven't seen it in decades.

I think you and I had the same thing as little kids. :)

There was a black box on top of our TV and had three buttons. To get HBO youd have to set the TV to channel 3 and press button B on the box. (I also discovered that if you set the TV to channel 8 and hit button A youd get channel 5, which was (and still is) NBC. Could you just watch channel 5? Sure, but what was the fun in that? My parents didnt want me doing that trick because they thought itd ruin the TV or the HBO box or something.)

I don't recall us having a box, but we had I think channel 7(unused station) was hard-set to HBO on our big 'ol Zenith console TV. I don't know how it worked. We didn't get regular cable + HBO until 85. I found out if you switched away from channel 3, and hit random channels on the cable box, you could get channels you didn't pay for, all free!

Episode 27, the last for 2017, is now available! Just as the the title of this episode's game does, 2017 will end with a bang as Sean discusses the homebrew title Worm! and the history of "snake" games and...Neil Diamond???

2018 can now start: episode 28 has been unearthed!

Today Sean takes on Bob DeCrescenzo's port of a Gremlin/Sega oldie in his Chicago non-basement (but alas found no Hulks). Ruthann the Beagle insisted on helping with the intro segment.
