Somewhere in a dusty old attic sat a dirty, forgotten cassette tape, chronicling the experiences of both me and my good friend Woody, someone I grew up with and someone who had a defining influence on my gaming habits in the early years.
High-tech audio recovery technology has been used to retrieve the content from this cassette, which had been badly damaged by the passage of time (just ignore the fact we talk about having a Nintendo Switch and stuff like that) but was just, just still salvageable.
Or perhaps I just made a boo-boo with the recording of this conversation and decided to run with it. No, no, no, that couldn’t possibly be the case.
This is “Episode X” because it’s a change from the usual format. No gaming news, no “what we’ve been playing”, just a couple of old friends getting together for a chat. I hope you enjoy our efforts to nostalgiarise, despite the shitty sound quality. Hopefully I’ll be able to get Woody (and perhaps Matt and/or Edd, both mentioned in this episode) down to MoeGamer HQ at some point in the future and we can do a proper job of this.
In the meantime, enjoy the episode, and a new “proper” episode of the podcast will be with you in the new year! And if you want to check out Gaming with Pedwood, which we discuss a bit in this episode… well, a little birdie told me you can still find it here and on iTunes…
Thanks for reading; I hope you enjoyed this article. I’ve been writing about games in one form or another since the days of the old Atari computers, with work published in Page 6/New Atari User, PC Zone, the UK Official Nintendo Magazine, GamePro, IGN, USgamer, Glixel and more over the years, and I love what I do.
