Released Thursday, 7th July 2011
Good episode? Give it some love!
You kids these days and your video game characters. You think they're so great! Well, I was a kid in the 40's, and our video game characters were worth a hundred of yours!I say characters, but really we only had one. Yankee Joe! It was 1944; the height of World War II. I hear kids today whining about how they're sick of WWII games, but back then it was all we had. Yankee Joe fought the Nazis to save the world.Yankee Joe didn't waste time with words or humanitarian aid. He killed Nazis. Over and over again. There was no reward; killing Nazis was reward enough. There was no score; only the sweet taste of dead Nazis. Yankee Joe only did one thing, but he did it well; he killed Nazis.Now we didn't have any fancy Nintendo or Sony Playstation. After all, we were at war with the Tojos. Instead, we drew dots on the radio and pretended it was the moving pictures and that we had video games that hadn't been invented yet.I don't think this post is really working, so I'm gonna cut it off here. This week we talked about video game characters! What makes them good? What makes them bad? Who really cares? Listen in and fun will be had by all![display_podcast]
