Fire up your Supa Dupa Podcast Playa and check out Cannon Fodder, episode 23, which has now been deployed (using a choppa, of course).  Link is in the show notes.

Not sure if you dug it up for the episode (I havent listened yet) but well after the Jaguar's death, a local radio station had a PSA about smoking or fire safety or something, & the music under the narration was from one of Hover Strike's levels.

That's remarkable, but no, I haven't heard about that.  I'd appreciate a link if you could find one.


Whoa hang on here, I had Unconquered Lands & I'm 99% sure NONE of the music you played on the episode was on the UL disc.

Totally different soundtracks?

The soundtracks are largely different.  As I said in the episode, I intentionally avoided Unconquered Lands in my research because I didn't want to cloud my opinions of the cartridge version, beyond what I remember of playing Unconquered Lands a couple decades ago.  When the UL episode comes around, I'll do a closer music comparison, but for years I've carried around the UL music on my various MP3 players, ripped from the CD.  After a quick listen, the title theme is present in a remixed form, and the others I didn't readily recognize from the cartridge version.


I wonder if, for the radio PSA you mentioned, one of the tracks from the CD version was used.  It's certainly easier to rip the CD (or hit up Fading Twilight) than to record off of the cartridge.

Episode 22, covering the cartridge version of Hover Strike, has arrived on an unnamed planet near you. Watch out for space pirates.  The direct link is at the top of the show notes, and you can also find this episode on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and your favorite RSS-based podcast application.  Buoyed by a bunch of great feedback, I think this may be one of my favorite episodes to date.

If I'm interpreting the site right, it looks like he's actually the seller. Valid question though.


Yes, those are my designs on RedBubble, except for the one with just the Jaguar logo since I try to avoid possible copyright/trademark infringement (the current "Atari" is a litigious bunch).  Here's the link to the storefront.  It's so cool to see someone actually wearing one, thank you so much for the photo ls650!

Yeah, the paint isn't a perfect match and doesn't hold up to close scrutiny, but I'm reasonably happy with the results on my model 1.

I wish I had taken a "before" picture.  It wasn't a pretty sight.
