Atari: Game Over

Join Lily, Shawn, and Scott as they review Atari: Game Over, the first documentary in Xbox Live's Signal to Noise series. Listen as they discuss the rise and fall of Atari Inc., the colossal commercial failure of E.T. The Game, the urban legend of the burial of millions of unsold E.T. The Game cartridges in a New Mexico landfill, and the years of undeserved blame placed on game designer Howard Scott Warshaw. From the Atari 2600 to Game Genie to Raspberry Pis to why having Steven Spielberg attached to your project may not necessarily be a good thing, they talk about it all!(Also Scott surprises the crew with a gift to commemorate the episode.) Hopefully this is one to phone home about!

Gigantor: Struggle at the South Pole

Join Lily, Shawn, Scott, and a special guest, Shawn's brother Dan, as they breakdown the first episode of the 1960's Japanese animated export: Gigantor! Listen as they discuss its origins in manga, Dan's childhood fondness of it, its transformation from a popular anime to a confusing "westernized" cartoon, and its multitudinous array of hilarious flaws. Can Gigantor think for himself? Why is only Jimmy allowed to wield such great power? Does hot water freeze faster? They'll take on all of these questions, and many more. Gigantor! Gigantor! Gigaaa-aaa-aaan-torrr!
