EPISODE 70 invites you to be a star and to get your RAID on! STAR RAIDERS is here!
This 1982 Atari game was the first to utilize the space-age video touch pad peripheral. It was also the last. That may give you a clue how this game is going to go.
Speaking of firsts doubling as lasts, listen to this episode closely for the first appearance of my wife – Mrs. Bytes – on the show. She was thrilled to do it…so thrilled that this will also probably be her last appearance.
Yes, sir, this episode is one for the record books. Join us, won’t you?
