You can save your breath if you were thinking about asking for Playstation games or bios images! But of course we welcome any discussion on the original Playstation, its emulation both on PC, PSP and the PS3.
Since you heard me clicking my mouse to go to these sites here are the links related to my handhelds segment!
Good resource though with more of a UK perspective:
HANDHELD ELECTRONIC GAME MUSEUM (Dave's personal collection):
Original source Home page: Dave's Arcade
As mentioned, for collecting purposes search the necessary evil Ebay or maybe better yet first check Game Gavel
I liked the show, although, I will admit, that I didn't listen to the MMO part, as I am always uncomfortable about hearing my own voice. Great stuff everyone! I cannot wait for the next one!
Great podcast guys, really enjoyed the section relating to MMRPG's, as a genre I avoid it was nice to hear about other peoples experiences with those games.
I’ve just finished listening to Armchair Arcade from Episode 1 to present after being recommended by Shane on Passenger Seat Radio at and I thought I'd leave some feedback. I really enjoyed the MMO talk and Shane’s interview an episode ago (although I’m biased being a DSR and PSR follower). I think Armchair Arcade would benefit from more games discussion between two or more people talking around a specific subject.

I must agree, I am a HUGE fan of the point/counterpoint thing.. and when they both agree on some stuff and not on others it really adds. Probebly not something easy to do with your format and locations. But I like the idea..
I kinda think of myslef as the counterpoint guy.. I might love a game (DUNEII may be may all time favorite) but I can always find flaws... :)
We definitely plan on having roundtable discussions/arguments/analysis/etc. when our schedules permit, even if it's just two of us at a time. With that said, I think we'll primarily be individual segment-based out of necessity. There will also be lots of experimentation as time permits, as well, so the format shouldn't become stale.
Episode 6 should hit in a few more days...
Hey everyone. I've listened since the beginning (and have commented a bit too)
and while this was a good episode - a lot changed and here are some thoughts I had:
(1) I think the major thing was that you got me used to these awesome informative 30-40 minute
segments. Half the segments were only 8 minutes this time. I know
you guys have busy lives and I understand. It was just unexpected to have
so many segments get chopped down all at once.
(2) Chip's segment. I hope Chip sticks around but I had 2 issues with it. First, he spent a
couple minutes apologizing that he might go off topic - but his segment was only 8 minutes long!
You should go off topic! These are games I've never heard of before, its not like we
want you to give the review and scram, go ahead and spiel. Second,
Chips segment is kind of an awkward opener (but would make a great "intermission" in the middle).
It's hard to imagine the games with
such a short segment and I guess Im used to settling in with one of Matts 40 minute
spiels, lol. (Positive: Loved the sound clips! And I give him
so much respect for crediting the artists at the end. That was really awesome.)
(3) Music. I know in the comments last time we all got into it about the music in between segments.
I think its cool that you decided to mix things up by using quotes between segments. That WAS nice,
but I really miss the music. The 30 secs or whatever between segments really helps clear the palette, lol.
It's cool that you switched it up. You should keep trying new things, but maybe they should be a bit
longer so it doesnt just jump into the next segment.
(4) In Matt's segment I liked the long discussion group format, but could you say peoples names
frequently in the beginning? These are people we don't know and with 5 people
it took me a while to follow along. It might help if you prefaced questions and comments with peoples
names for the first several minutes.
(5) Some of us have a bit of OCD and you are torturing us, lol. The filename conventions change and
look at these mp3 tags: "AAS - Episode #1" "AAS - August" "AAS - 3" "AAS - Episode 4". It's almost
like you're trolling us on purpose ;)
Most importantly: You guys always do a great job and I'm really looking forward for the next one!
