Matt Barton's picture

It's Armchair Arcade Radio episode three, featuring the talents of Matt Barton, Rob Daviau, Bill & Christina Loguidice, and Chris Kennedy. I *love* this episode! Everything came together so beautifully; anyone who cares about classic games should not only download it, but take pains to preserve it!

Thoughts from a new user

Hello everyone,
I would like to say that I have very much enjoyed the podcasts and the topics covered thus far.
My favorite topics have been Matt's discussion of CRPGs in the second podcast, the discussion of DRM by the Dr. from the Netherlands and Chris Kennedy's presentation of building a vintage gaming pc. That is something I'd love to do one day too!

Everything has been great and I really look forward to the next episodes. It would be interesting to have all of the presenters talking together in a sort of round table discussion. I'm not sure if this has been suggested before but it would be nice to hear the ideas bounce around from each presenter.

Also, some topics for the future: The top ten Atari 2600 games, a detailed discussion of the video game crash of 84 and if it could happen again?, What are you playing now and why? (got to thinking this after hearing Chris Kennedy talk so favorably about Dragon Quest 9), and your favorite game studio from the late 80s/early 90s. Just some ideas and I hope they help!

Keep up the great work!

Alright listened to this a

Alright listened to this a while back but didn't get around to leaving any feed back. Once again, good show guys. Interesting topics all around.

My favorites had to be Matt, Rob, and Chris. Just liked the topics you covered most. I've never really played adventure games accept from Myst at a very young age. I decided to get back into Myst just to say I'd beaten it ^^. I've always been a big fan of the survival horror game genre but haven't gotten much chance to play many of them. Of course Chris's story struck pretty close to home. I can surely say I've suffered from video game addiction with many a games.

Wish I had some tips for you guys but can't really think of much at the moment. Just wanted to say good job and keep them coming as long as you can.
