TCW Podcast Episode 097 - Revisions and Updates 2


The podcast is four years old!  We celebrate by looking back at past episodes, and revising subjects that Alex has found new information on!  There is, of course, more and new information in regards to Atari.  We also do some speculation into the origin of Scramble, some commentary on what has been going on at Blizzard Entertainment, and some new information in relation to the origins of Galaxian.  We make a note of the earliest known commercial ester egg, some new information on the first Japanese original game creation for the arcade, and wrap up with some more book updates.  We look forward to the countdown to episode 100!
