TCW Podcast Episode 145 - Revisions and Updates 3
Our sixth year anniversary! In this episode we look back at the podcast and correct some of the errors that were made in the past. First we explore the company Fun Games which was sued by Atari for making clones of Atari products using stolen equipment. The source and story of this is better told with new information that has come to light. Other new information includes the discovery that the 100 yen coin shortage in Japan was real! The circumstances around the shortage is a lot more complicated. The final major item was discovering the first game sold on a micro computer. This particular game was published as a book, and not on tape or magnetic media making it unique for the first game of this type.
