Chris and Tatton recap the details of a large shopping trip around the Columbus area they took with Steve and Becky. We visited approx 14 stores and talk about what we picked up as well as what makes a good game store and what leads to losing game stores. If you live close to the greater Columbus area we also grade some of the local stores. I want to give a shout out to one of our oldest and favorite stores, Video Games Express. I also want to shout out to one of our new favorite stores, Warp Zone. Their addresses are listed below. If you visit one of these stores based on our podcast, be sure to tell them we sent you so they’ll be properly confused!
Video Games Express
2358 Stringtown Rd, Grove City, OH
Warp Zone Video Games
4496 Cemetery Road, Hilliard, OH
Chris throws an all-day video game party. Afterwards, Steve, Sam, Brad, Tatton, Seth, Becky, and Tori stick around and chat up the games for this episode. Sean also adds his two quarters before he sails off into parenthood next month.
A quick Chris and Steve episode updating our whereabouts the since the holidays and our convention plans for the next couple of months. Plus PS4 apathy.
Scott (from episode 6) and Chris talk baseball with C. Trent Rosecrans from CBSsports.com. Trent used to write for the Cincinnati Post, used to work in the radio business, and while running his own website he was a pioneer in crowd-sourcing. He was super cool to chat with and other than baseball we also talk video games, journalism, fatherhood, and hamburgers.
Part 3 of 3 – The fearsome foursome reconvenes to discuss console launches from the Sega Saturn all the way through the near simultaneous launch of the Wii and PlayStation 3. Which machine wins the consensus title of “Best Launch Evar” and “What the *#&^! were they thinking?”
Jonas Neubauer is 2012 Classic Tetris World Champion! This title is his third straight. Newcomer Mike Winzineck finished second.
Part 2 of 3 – The gang of four discuss the launches of consoles from the 8 bit and 16 bit eras.
Now You’re Playing with Podcast is an official sponsor of this year’s Classic Tetris World Championships in Portland, Oregon on September 29th and 30th. Our very own Steve Kennedy will be there fighting the good fight for our show.
Ben Mullen was already a guest on our show and was super cool to chat with. I have also met and talked to Robin Mihara, Thor Aackerlund and Adam Cornelius a few times over the past couple of years while Ecstasy of Order was in production and they were all friendly and beyond great to talk to.
While the potential boost in our listenership is nice, we really just wanted to help these guys out and thank them for their work on the movie, their work with the tournament, and for simply being good people.
Best of Luck to all the Tetrinauts(?) in Portland!
