Remember those classic Atari 2600 games? They were sure fun to play, but didn't you ever wonder why they sent a plumber to take out Donkey Kong? What Yar was seeking revenge against? What made those robots go berserk? Me too? ATARI BYTES is more than a game review podcast. It's an exploration of the games to divine what exactly the story within the game is. And if we can't find those answers, we'll make 'em up.

Atari 2600 + snark = baZANGo!

Bill does a great job of easing the pain of my Monday morning commutes. Atari Bytes takes the game-by-game formula and turns it inside out with the back stories of the characters in the games, and if there aren't any, well..Bill steps right up and provides them! And he adds just enough snark (which is never really enough!) to point out the foibles and the logic.

Make sure when you listen to this podcast that you hold your iPod so that the lock button is on the upper left and the headphones jack is on the upper right.


Bill takes a different approach to these wonderful games, he makes up stories for them that are really hilarious, and the results are terrific. Occasinally his son will make an appearance and he is really funny too. This show is well worth your time, give it a listen!

Not Your Average Game Review

With the library of the legendary Atari 2600 VCS at his disposal, Bill takes the average game review and adds a new dimension by evaluating the story behind the game. Seems like it would be easy for games like "Popeye" and "Superman", but can Bill do it for games like "Othello" and "Surround"??

Tune in to find out!!

(Spoiler Alert: Yes, he totally can, and it's hilarious! Definitely listen in!!)
