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!
Just what everybody wanted for Valentine's Day: a podcast episode... about an NFL football game... on the Jaguar. Episode 21 - Troy Aikman NFL Football is now available in your RSS-based podcast client, with iTunes and Stitcher following whenever they pick it up.
The next episode will focus on Hover Strike, and I've set an arbitrary feedback deadline of March 9th for that one, if you'd like to send something in (please?). Thank you for listening!
I knew it was coming up for Shinto, but I figured it would be weeks before his episode was out.
You're right, both of you announced it in advance, right? Duh me. But yeah, this was a quick turnaround for Shinto.
You know, I'm actually surprised when I get an episode out the door, too. That said, I've just got some finishing touches to do on Troy Aikman NFL Football and will have that episode published within the next day or two, which is super fast for me.
In other news, a new Nintendo 64 podcast released their first episode a couple days ago. What I've been able to gather about the show I put up at n64.gamebygamepodcast.com.
The other N64 podcast I had listed, Strictly 64, may be dead now since their website and Twitter account both went dark.
The latest episode of the podcast, covering Pinball Fantasies, is out of the launch lane and hopefully not headed for a quick drain. Fire up your flipper fingers, check it out, and as always thank you for listening.
The next episode will cover Troy Aikman NFL Football, and if you happen to have any feedback you'd like to share on that one, please send that along, text or audio submission, to email@example.com. Thanks!
Considering who they have on their now, I could care less. They lost me as a listener when they added that scumbag, and I'm shocked Shinto used him as a source in a recent Jaguar podcast.
I tend to take every source with a grain of salt, and try to double-check cited facts if at all possible. Some things don't pass the smell test and therefore don't make it into the podcast. I know of whom you speak, and I have openly disagreed with some of his conclusions in the past, but when he includes quotes from people who worked at the companies related to whichever game I'm covering, I'd be remiss not to include it as a reference.
The latest installment of the podcast, covering Double Dragon V: The Shadow Falls, is now online. Here's a direct link, some show notes, and you'll also find it on iTunes and Stitcher. Even if you don't care for the game, I hope you enjoy the episode.
Up next is Pinball Fantasies. If you have any feedback you'd like to share, please post here, PM me, or send a text or audio submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
The Brutal Sports Football episode is out, and to back up that audacious claim I have a link to Libsyn and some show notes, plus you can also check it out on iTunes, your favorite RSS-based podcast player, and probably Stitcher at this point as well.
The next episode of the podcast will cover Double Dragon V! If you have any feedback for this one, I'd love to get it in the episode, so post/PM here, or send a text or audio submission to email@example.com by October 20th.
Thank you very much, DrMalba. I wish I could keep up a regular episode release schedule, but the research is incredibly time-consuming, so I do my best to fit it in with the usual grown-up responsibilities of jobs and kids and household and stuff. This summer has been nuts. I haven't stopped working on the next episode, it's coming along nicely, just very slowly. I still love putting together this podcast, it's a lot of fun to do, so I am grateful for your support and patience!
Hi, everybody, long time no podcast. I won't get into excuses about the delay, but will instead announce that the latest episode, covering the recent Jaguar homebrew game Rebooteroids, is now available! Check it out at the direct link, view the show notes, or simply download using your favorite podcast player (any time now, iTunes). This was a fun episode to put together, and I'm glad I took the detour into homebrew territory.
In the next episode, we are back to the regular release chronology with Brutal Sports Football, a game I'm fairly certain I haven't so much as plugged into my Jaguar in the last 20 years. Will it be like visiting an old friend, or has it been left idle for good reason? I'm looking forward to finding out, and to hearing your feedback, if you have any you'd like to share. You may post or PM me here, or e-mail a text or audio submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi Shinto! I just wondered if there was a way of me downloading an episode to use offline whenever I like? I tried pressing the 'Dowload This Episode' button but it didn't seem to work, it just played it
Hi, Lianne! Your browser is being helpful and handling the link internally, instead of doing what you actually want. To save the file locally, right-click (or Ctrl-click or two-finger-tap or long-tap, depending on your device) on the "Download this Episode" link on the Libsyn page, and choose "Download link" (or "Save Link As" or "Save Link Target As", depending on your browser) to save the MP3 file to disk.
I contacted Gameband and asked about the anachronistic logo they're using on the wristband, giving them a couple mock-ups using the classic logo layouts. Gameband very politely replied, agreeing that one of the original logo arrangements I provided would be preferable, but that "Atari of today have different guidelines." He loves the alternatives I suggested and will present them to the team, but can make no guarantees.
So it's not Gameband getting the logo wrong, it's "Atari." I'm not surprised or anything, just disappointed. I also may be the only one bothered by this. The rest of their smartwatch is shaping up nicely and I'm excited about getting one, but it's just that a silly thing like the logo would be so easy to get right.
My own copy of Rebooteroids will be arriving later this week, and I've been thinking I might do an episode on it in the near future, maybe even right after the current episode (Val d'Isère), just to mix things up a bit. If I do go that route, I'll of course announce here first and give plenty of time for feedback. I hope you enjoy your Jag, and thanks for listening!
It took longer than I had hoped, and ended up longer than I expected, but the Zool 2 episode has been published. Check it out directly, on iTunes/Stitcher/Google Play (within a few hours of this post, typically), or your favorite podcast player. Show notes are on the blog. Thanks to those who sent in feedback, and thank you all for listening.
The next episode will cover what is perhaps the best skiing/snowboarding game on the Jaguar, Val d'Isère Skiing and Snowboarding. I'd love to hear any feedback you might have on this one.
