  1. Besides Super Burnout, there were postcards for White Men Can't Jump, Ultra Vortek, FlipOut!, and the Jaguar CD which included four CD games (Hoverstrike: Unconquered Lands, Dragon's Lair, Primal Rage, Highlanter) on one side plus four carts (Power Drive Rally, I-War, Rayman, and Ruiner Pinball) on the other. I believe there was a second Jaguar CD postcard, but it's not one I appear to have received/saved from 1995.
  2. After a lengthy build time, the gates to the Atari Jaguar Game by Game Podcast episode on Theme Park are open! Inside, you'll find, surprisingly, the longest episode to date. And despite the Park Advisor's objections, admission is free! Coming up in the next episode we'll be covering fan favorite racing game Super Burnout. Please post any opinions, reviews, or feedback here, in a PM, or sent (as text or audio file) to [email protected] Thanks!
  3. Download or listen to the podcast episode at atarijaguargamebygame.libsyn.com/29-theme-park The Advisor recommends you check out Theme Park! In this Ferris wheel-sized episode, we look at the histories of two storied UK video game companies, learn about the development of the Jaguar version straight from the source (whose name I hope I pronounced correctly), check out all the rides and attractions, and find out that M. Thatcher is actually a dude. Act surprised at the unexpected musical number, and if you want, stick around for storytime at the end. Also included is feedback from Derek, Trevor, Randal, Chris, Gary, Mark, Zeus09998580, atarilbc, Patrick, TrekMD, and Adam!

Also included are a couple curious song similarities, storytime segments featuring carbonated beverages and open-source operating systems, plus feedback from Rhett, RD, Björn, Roberth, Liam, Atarilbc, Arethius, Hakuzo, and JagMod! One of those may or may not correct a recurring mistake on my part.

Along the way, we uncover a previously-unknown cheat code, dig into all the various ports and their differences, and argue about whether the Titan in this game is a planet or a moon.

  10. Heh. Honestly, it didn't even occur to me. But if it's Simpsons you're after, there is a Simpsons reference later on in the episode.

This heavy-tank-sized episode will give you all you need to know to defeat Override, including the little-known history of the game I-War, a complete catalog of weapons, a list of enemies and hazards, and tons of tips. We find a close connection between I-War and Defender 2000, dig deep for hidden messages, and solve the mystery of the missing level music. All this plus a dramatic re-enactment and a yelling Klingon are available on this side of the podcast Datalink. Stick around for feedback from Derek, Randal, Chad, Björn, Arethius, Roberth, and Chris, plus Jaguar stories from LehtMojo and Ben! Also, a Retro League eulogy.

  15. The tiles have finally landed in their correct spots, meaning the FlipOut! episode is available for your listening pleasure (or consternation, depending on how you feel about FlipOut!). I was honored and fortunate to have the game's designer Conrad Barski answer a lot of questions about the game, and fill the gaps in FlipOut!'s development story. Check it out through the link at the top of the show notes, or in iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, or your favorite RSS-based podcast player. The next episode covers the top-down racing game Power Drive Rally. Memories? Opinions? Post here, or e-mail [email protected] Above all, though, thank you for listening!
