CX 2681, Battlezone!

Yes, another split episode. I just wanted to get something out there, this is the best way for me to do that right now. Maybe it's the way I should be doing this, who knows? That was the original plan. At any rate, this episode is all about Battlezone by Atari, and next time I will cover Krull and the feedback for both games. So if you have any thoughts on either game, you still have time to send it to me at Thank you so much for listening!

Part 2: 8056100286, California Games!

This is part 2 of episode 125, where I discuss California Games by Epyx, and read and listen to your feedback on all the Epyx games. Next up is Battlezone and Krull, both by Atari. I am hoping to watch the Krull movie before the episode since it is available on YouTube. If you have any feedback on these games, as always you can send it to me at Please be sure to check out Geekade's Twitch channel on August 20th for their Pain in the Ass-a-thon, which is a charity benefit for the Colon Cancer Alliance. You can donate during the 24 stream at the Twitch site. Thanks for listening!
