1. Atari Bytes: Star Fox

We wondered why one reviewer declared that the best thing about Mythicon’s 1983 game STAR FOX, the intended first in a series of games, was that Mythicon didn’t make any more games in that series.

Now we know.

This space adventure(?) has something to do with recuing mysterious space-y energy crystals, which might just be Walter White’s blue meth, for all we learn from the game, from some vague enemy race.

Sound fun? No, really. Does it?

Well, a bad day of Atari is still better than a good day at work. Right? And if work is bad too, maybe this good (?) episode will get you through it.
