The Racketboy podcast has produced 36 retro gaming episodes, interviewing the likes of James Rolfe, Nathan Barnatt, Retroware TV’s Lance Cortez, and the Smithsonian’s “The Art of Video Games” curator, Chris Melissinos. They’ve talked with folks from XSeed and traversed different conventions like Pax East and Too Many Games to interview game developers on upcoming titles. I was flattered to have been asked to join the show to discuss some of my favorite and least favorite retro sports games of the 8 and 16-bit eras in their latest production.
Joined by the regular hosts Dave and John (who is a part of Tradition Sports himself), as well as Racketboy forum poster sevin0seven (a die hard NBA video game collector), we tackled FMV sports games, our favorite pack-ins by EA in the early 90s and I went on a terrific rant against Tradewest for their work in this and another Tradewest published NES game which I also consider one of the worst sports games of all time.
You can find the entire episode on the Racketboy podcast here, including the ability to listen through the site and also download the podcast via iTunes. The entire episode is nearly two hours and was a ton of fun to record.
I hope everyone enjoys and please feel free to post any feedback in the comments section.
