    The NExt Episode – take three (arRrhghghgh!!!!!)

    (okay, THIS TIME FOR SURE.) We’re calling this “the next episode” because it’s not the previous episode. It’s also not the first episode nor the last episode, unless something REALLY weird happens. Look…it’s an episode. And we actually remembered to mention our RedBubble store.

    Ikey and Mikie, in a most exclusive place, were held up by a mugger, who cut up Ikey’s favorite coat and robbed him, and hit him with a hose.

Great show and great hosts

This podcast provides just enough info and entertainment of classic arcade games. Not too geeky and not too surface level. The hosts also have a great rapport with one another. They finish each other’s sentences, make fun of one another and have some inside jokes but even those are accessible to any loyal listeners. Each show discusses ins and outs of 2 classic games which usually have some obscure connection to each other. I have a full arcade cabinet and MAME of every single arcade game so I enjoy playing the games they discuss in each episode while I listen for helpful walkthrough, tips and observations.

Fun All Around

A very fun podcast to listen to. Some complain that they are not too technical or that they do not have too much experience with the games, but they make up for that with their passion for the games and how it feels to play them. When you listen to them review the games, it almost feels like you are hanging out with some good friends just chatting about memories old and new. A must listen for those who just mainly want to remember the games for what they are, fun games.
