New Episode! EPISODE 67: BUSTER BROS AND BLASTEROIDS

The last episode of 2017 brings you two guys talking about two late ’80s games with two…uhhh…something or other. Ooh…and is there a special something for Patreon supporters? Only time will tell.

Whoa...didn't we release a final episode for 2017? Heh...well, the thing about that is....HERE'S A BONUS EPISODE!!

Jim and Sean offer you a holiday gift: an extra episode! The Pie Factory hosts aren't too afraid of...public speaking...to offer one more...broadcast...for 2017. Normally they talk about video games, but this time they get...behind the microphone...another way to talk about a topic pertinent to their past lives. For the...record...this episode's transmission may make your head spin! We hope you stay...stationary...and don't get...carted...away! In fact, we hope you end up walking on...the air!

I was going to post this in the contests forum, but it seems that I don't have posting access there....but...

At Pie Factory Podcast we are running a contest. It's specifically for our Patreon supporters. (We realized we haven't really given our supporters a thank-you gift, so this could be a start.)

The prize: a Sears Telegames Video Arcade 2600 light-sixer. It's cleaned up and AV-modded (in such a way that you can re-solder it back to its original condition if you want) and comes with not only a handful of complete-in-box games (including some Telegames-branded carts), but also the original outer box that contained the Sixer.

What you have to do:

1) Be a Patreon supporter of Pie Factory Podcast (or if you're not, then become one via patreon.com/piefactorypodcast), and
2) Come up with a theme for our next episode, which will cover Battlezone and Juno First. There's no right or wrong answer: be creative! What, in your eyes, do the two games have in common? E-mail your theme suggestion to piefactory@fab4it.com

Our original deadline was 11:59pm January 1, 2018 (CST), but we will likely extend it.

Everybody's fourth-favorite midwestern video game podcast hosts have returned from their monthlong tour of Europe, Scandinavia, and the subcontinent with deep thoughts about Battlezone and Juno First. Shirley this episode will go down in history as "The Show Notes Episode."

What? You thought Sean and Jim would let January end without you getting another episode in your podcast player?! Pshaw! Here with the long-awaited episode 69 are your beloved hosts waxing philosophical about two early '80s space games. We're sure to sell a million units...in January.

Question: What did Sean get wrong *this time*? Answer: it’s probably somewhere in this episode. So is a missing sequined glove (probably). Anyway, just listen to episode 70. Because that’s what it certainly is: an episode.

I've been curious as to how this episode would go over. It's a bit on the unusual side. Still the same format - preamble, Addena and Errata, one game, another game, theme reveal, thanks to the sponsors, announcing the next episode's games, closing credits, and (if applicable) bloopers/outtakes. But the content itself is a bit unusual.

Out of the blue I already got some insightful feedback but I'd like as much as possible.

Jim and Sean were getting lazy and restless with episode 71, so they did what anybody else would do: invite two guests to join them and do all the dirty work. Enjoy this special foursome as they present their intercourse on Contra and Ikari Warriors.

So it's come to this...Sean and Jim have released twelve episodes six times. SIX TIMES. Can they do it a seventh time? Stick around for episode 84 and find out! In the mean time, here's episode 72, examining works by Konami and Bally Midway.

It's Monday! And when a new episode of Pie Factory Podcast comes out on a Monday, it means Monday's FUNday, Charlie Brown! In their last episode before Midwest Gaming Classic, Jim and Sean discuss, well...two arcade games and reveal a common theme. Duh. If you're in Milwaukee, come to MGC and see us in the vendor hall. (Or at least visit the statue of The Fonz.)

Episode 74 - Midwest Gaming Classic 2018 - is available now!

That rough, ragged trip down I-94 brings forth some thoughts and interviews from one of the biggest gaming conventions in the country. If this doesn't get you excited for what will be happening again in about 51 weeks, then...we dunno, maybe something else will??

(Please note: the interviews conducted in this episode are edited for time and content; full-length versions will be available for download/streaming, but as of right now, they're not. Keep watching the skis! Uhh.....skies.)

Here we are with another instalment of Pie Factory Podcast, an arcade game podcast that most certainly exists. What do you get when you combine Atari and NAMCO? Well, maybe Pac-Mania, but in this case, you get cops and a superhero. This episode will certainly be just that: a episode!

Episode 36 - Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Return of the Jedi - is now available!
 
I think this is the longest title we’ve had for an episode so far. Is it? Hmm….I don’t know. I’ll have to check. Wait…why am I typing this? Anyway…here’s a show about a couple of George Lucas film games. Yeah.

Because we have nothing better to do, Pie Factory Podcast is back with episode 77. In this super special episode of Pie Factory Podcast, Sean and Jim discuss the latest retro gaming news (which is not news anymore because post production takes such a long time!), but then eschew the usual format to discuss their adventures on two wheels. A super special guest helps out as well!

Well, it's Monday, and as such we cannot come up with a creative announcement for episode 79. So here it is. Episode 79. Millipede and Liberator. Listen to the podcast. Trade it with friends. Post a link in your next bathroom graffiti.

Cool.  Listening to it.  Heard my name mentioned so you must be about to read my "brief" feedback.  ;)

We at Pie Factory Podcast like to record episodes. We like it so much, we've done it more than 80 times. We hope that you'll add this episode about "Q" games to your podcast queue. (See what I did there?)

How do Jim and Sean spend their three-day weekend near the end of summer? By servicing you, our friends, the listeners, with a brand new episode! This time we wax philosophical about another movie game and another Gottlieb game. We hope you’re not…alienated by this episode, but we guarantee you some kind of…reaction.
