Hi all, my name is Ferg and I started this now bi-weekly podcast in 2013. My goal is to cover EVERY game made for the Atari 2600. Because I'm dumb. In each episode, I cover one to three games (usually by one company) and I talk about the gameplay, history (of the game AND the programmer if I can), packaging, and YOUR memories of the games. I always give a heads up for what's coming up and I get such wonderful feedback for almost every game. You can check out all of the episodes here: http://2600gamebygam...syn.com/webpage

 

I am also on iTunes and Stitcher, but iTunes has started to remove some of the shows, so the Libsyn page is your best bet right now for the early episodes, if you want to hear me learn how to podcast over a long period of time (still learning). :)

 

This week I cover two Spectravision games which I like very much, China Syndrome and the Challenge of Nexar. You can find the episode here:

 

The next episode will be about E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, which you may have heard of. If you would like to contribute your memories of E.T., you can send them to me at 2600gamebygame@comcast.net

 

Thank you for reading all this and especially for listening!

FERG!!!!

Just in case you aren't a regular listener, this is a bi-weekly joyride that has rekindled my love for Atari & retro gaming in general. Ferg does a fantastic job and the listener feedback is so, so good. 

***Warning*** The Atari 2600 Game by Game podcast is a dangerous gateway podcast. You may soon find yourself discovering many other fine podcasts and never have any time to listen to anything else.

In two weeks I'll be discussing Name This Game and Towering Inferno by US Games. If you have any thoughts or memories of these games, please send them to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thanks for listening! :)

This was a pleasant surprise this morning!

BTW, the pinball episode was great. I'm planning on picking that up for Pinball Arcade on Xbox One.

 

Thanks Ferg!

I have Name This Game and Towering Inferno coming up, and again, I am having a lot of fun with these two. It's amazing to me that just putting a little bit of time into these games yields such positive results. It's not true for all of them of course (I'm looking at you Fireworld), but I'm finding that games that have been dismissed for years deserve another look. Phil already has great videos for these up on his No Swear Gamer show, so please check those out! Then you can send me some feedback at 2600gamebygame@comcast.net if you'd like. If I ask for feedback here, I will forget to read it. If you listen to my show you know how I am. :)

I also did a special episode where I talked about ME ME ME and my video game collecting history:

 

 

Just this morning I posted my extra long show about Centipede and Ms. Pac-Man:

 

http://traffic.libsyn.com/2600gamebygamepodcast/113_-_Ms._Pac-Man__Centipede_by_Atari.mp3

 

Next week is my annual (?) Christmas Memories episode, I ran out of time to do research on any games. If you have any Atari-related Christmas memories you can send them to me by December 19th at 2600gamebygame@comcast.net.

 

On January 13th I'll be discussing Spider Fighter and Seaquest by Activision, so if you like those games, please let me know about it!

 

Thank you so much for your support!
