ATARI BYTES

William Pepper( From Independent Podcaster)

Remember those great Atari 2600 games? Sure, they were 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 the Defender was defending or why those robots went Berserk? Me too! ATARI BYTES is a game review podcast like no other. We review not just the game play, but the STORY within these classic games. We take a BYTE out of the story (get it?) and see if that story BYTES us back (now do you get it?).
