Did you know that “dogie” as in “Git along, little dogie,” is spelled with just one “g” when it’s cattle, not with two like in “My doggie just peed on your cat”?

Me neither!

That’s just one of the many things we learn in episode 74 of the podcast where we drive those dogies across the digital prairie in Activision’s 1981 tribute to the American cowboy STAMPEDE.

So go find your ten-gallon hat and chaps (pants are optional) and join us on the cattle drive!

EPISODE 73: RIVER RAID II

Episode 73 is a heapin’ second helping of River Raid-esque goodness. RIVER RAID II from 1988 takes what we loved about the original Activision legend and overlays an early era flight simulator. Does the game soar or crash and burn?

Hmmm. 1980s. Fighter jets screaming overhead, performing death defying maneuvers as the sexy pilots complete their mission while trading witty banter. Does any of that sound familiar? Let’s discuss…

Here’s the article about the true “Age of Aquarius” we talked about in the show.

EPISODE 72: CHOPLIFTER! (7800)

ATARI BYTES EPISODE 72: CHOPLIFTER! has taken flight! That’s two exclamation points already. That means you know the 1987 port of this 1982 Apple game to the Atari 7800 has to be good.

Who are the Bungelings? How fast can the delegates run? Who knew the post office could be this exciting? So. Many. Questions. But we’re here with the (made up) answers.

Whoops! I meant, we’re playing the 1977 Atari original COMBAT. Tanks! Bi-planes! Jets! Mayhem abounds!*
