TCW Podcast Episode 030 - DOOM

 

We discuss ID Software, and the lasting effects of the company on the video game industry, and society as a whole.  We delve into the ramifications of the tech industry in general, and coders specifically with perpetual crunch time.  We go into a lot of different subjects tangential to the ID story. Ultimately realizing the lasting effect a group of guys taking advantage of potentially one of the last times an independent developer could make it alone in the AAA space.

50 Years of Namco

November 1, 2016

TCW Podcast Episode 029 - 50 Years of Namco

 

We delve in the fifty year history of Namco.  Starting with its cloudy beginnings all the way to its acquisition by Ban-Dai.  Namco is responsible for many classics including Pac-Man, Galaga, and a slew of racing games.  Though they did not always have a visible presence in the US Arcade scene, they still had a presence in the arcade and console arenas.
