Blake J Harris is the author of the fantastic new book Console Wars and was a Sega kid during the aforementioned 16-bit console war. Scott joins the usual gang for this interview, making this the unofficial largest gathering of Nintendo WiiU owners in recorded history.
Michael Thomasson runs Good Deal Games. He attends several classic video game conventions each year selling homebrew titles for many different systems, and he has been in business for 15 years. Michael also happens to be the man who put together the world’s largest video game collection (according to some book called the Guinness Book of World Records).
We held a panel at CORGScon 2014 with Michael and it went very well. But Michael is a type of guy that could carry a podcast hosted by a broom, so we don’t want to take too much credit.
CORGS 2014 was a huge success. We hosted a game of Video Game Jeopardy! Here it is… hopefully we won’t get sued.
This episode has been in the pipeline for a couple of months. So rather than break it in two, this mega-episode will pass the three-and-a-half hour mark. Chris, Tatton, Becky, and Steve talk in depth about video gaming’s adolescence. The change from 2D to 3D was only a part of this transformation. Join us, Jeremy Freedman has a taco waiting for you…
Chris joins Rick from the Intellivisionaries Podcast, Ferg from the 2600 Game by Game Podcast, and S1500 from Classic Console Gamernews on the latest episode of CCG. We discuss retro internet and we play a few rounds version of the Meta Game (Video Game Golden Age edition).

Chris guest hosts episode 8 of The Intellivisionaries Podcast. The Intellivision was Chris’s first video game system as a child, so he was a natural fit for the show. There is also a segment where Steve joins Chris for a round of Sea Battle for the Intellivision.

Chris, Tatton and Scott shoot the breeze in the car on the way home from Pinburgh 2014. The subject of modern gaming came up. Are we missing the boat with next-gen video games? Surprising revelations are revealed in this episode.
Another Hexadecathlon so soon? This edition of HDC featured the 8 best players from the previous 4 events. 16 games were randomly drawn from the 64 titles played at all Hexadecathlons. The winner was declared grand champion and took home the brand new HDC title belt.
Tatton, Becky, Chris and Linda take a trip the Louisville Slugger Factory to visit their Pinball to Pixel exhibit on the history of sports pinball and video games. Sports video games are the bane of game collectors. While the hate is mostly justified, sports video games play a critical role in the history of the industry, and there are several great classic video sports games that appeal to more than digital meatheads.
