Shane R. Monroe is out with a great new episode of his show Retrogaming Radio. As always, there's a lot of great content to enjoy, but this one covers a subject near and dear to many of us here at Armchair Arcade: videogame preservation! It might sound simple, but have you ever seriously thought about what we should be doing NOW to ensure that we can still play our favorite games ten, twenty, or fifty years from now? While there will almost certainly be ways to play Pac-Man or Super Mario Bros, what about lesser known shareware and public domain games favorites like Scorched Tanks? It's good stuff.
Wow! Looks like we hit the motherload today with tons of fresh content that's eminently worthwile. It all starts with Coin-Op TV's interview with Jeff Anderson, curator of the fabulous Videotopia traveling museum exhibit dedicated to videogames. Jeff's an awesome dude! I know you'll be surprised to discover the exhibit's most popular vintage game (hint, it's not Pacman or Pong!). Also on the queue is this absolutely hilarious "vintage" SNL skit about videogame addiction I found on Kotaku this morning (see YouTube clip beneath the fold!). I almost fell out of my chair laughing! Oh, and don't forget to peek at the new Bomberman.
