In this episode of The Atari 5200 Podcast:

Steve continues his never ending quest to burn down his house finding new ways to make new controllers work with old systems. Glen takes off his Essential Worker Supersuit and and checks in with his latest stuff. David brings the latest from the Atariverse. Pete has the latest from his home studio. And Capt. Bob checks in from deep in the heart of the Atari Force Strategic Command Facility (His Basement) to contribute almost absolutely nothing.

And since we have nothing else to do during a global pandemic lockdown, we finally, after long last, get to our viewer feedback and determine who is the big winner! Also, we prepare for our next review episode Parker Brothers Frogger and Gyruss.

Is this “Love in the Time of Cholera?” Nope, it’s Love in the Time of COVID-19! And you have nothing else better to do than listen to our Spring Podcast Update and Contest Giveaway, here, on The Atari 5200 Podcast!

On this episode of The Atari 5200 Podcast...

Fatigue from the holidays and cold and flu season can’t stop the crew of this podcast! But it came pretty close.  This episode we cover the two games that were created by Lucasfilm Games, Ballblazer and Rescue on Fractalus. Steve and Capt. Bob compare sniffles, Pete’s inner game geek is let loose upon the world, Glen is off doing other amazing stuff, and David tests out his new recording equipment. Which is why about 10 minutes into the episode he mysteriously disappears.

Which strangely works out. Because these are two games that we can talk about all day, but they must be played and experienced to be truly appreciated. And for the first time, Show Notes! Follow the links below to learn more about Lucasfilm Games.

Fueled on nothing but enthusiasm, holiday burnout, and NyQuil, is this episode of The Atari 5200 Podcast!
