  1. Thanks, Troff! This episode is actually in iTunes, just way way back in 2015. That's when I originally published it, so I just modified that existing episode entry. After I published the updated version, I noticed there was no blog entry for this episode, so I added it in. That's why the blog shows it as new, but iTunes still shows it as pretty old.
  2. Download or listen to the podcast episode at atarijaguargamebygame.libsyn.com/31-syndicate Set your cybernetic sights on world domination in Syndicate! Get a handle on the controls, concoct an unofficial overlay, peruse reviews from around the world, and question the ESRB rating in this episode about Bullfrog's cyberpunk classic. Oh, yeah, and check out several previously-undisclosed cheat codes. Also included is feedback from RJ, the Lost Dragon, PFG 9000, tripled79, MightyFrog, cubanismo, Kyle, Louis, and Bobby Tribble! Woohoo! All that plus storytime involving out-of-context Atari, and nerds makin' noise in the computer lab.

  4. Best time! Final lap! If you just read those words in an echoing "real male voice," then you may be a fan of the Jaguar-exclusive Super Burnout, perhaps the best racing game on the platform. Learn all about it the latest episode of the Atari Jaguar Game by Game Podcast. The next episode will feature Syndicate by Bullfrog. I've never actually plugged this cart into my Jaguar, so I'm hoping YOU (yes, you) have some memories you can share. If so, please post here, or e-mail your feedback to [email protected] Thanks!
  5. Download or listen to the podcast episode at atarijaguargamebygame.libsyn.com/30-super-burnout Blisteringly-fast arcade-style motorcycle racing hits the Atari Jaguar with Super Burnout. In this episode, we figure out if "super" really is better, Bishop wreaks pre-programmed havoc on a national anthem, we track down the real-life inspiration behind each of the game's courses, hunt for the optimal audio balance, and create crazy glitches with a cheat code. We're also packed with feedback from Randal, Björn, Lestat, Roberth, Olivier Nallet (really!), Rhett, Derek, Peter, atarilbc, Doctor Clu, RJ, Louis, TrekMD, Steve Clinton from London, and Kyle! Throughout the episode, check out snippets from the underrated soundtrack, including the entirety of Shen's Theme at the very end, following Storytime, which includes my COVID-19 update.

  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
