Andrew Jackson and Eddie Hall come together to talk about everything video games, through past experience videos, podcasts, and interviews whenever they get to a convention. Interviews with various indie developers are all shot with a Flip video cam held at arm's length.
That title sounds wrong in more ways than I planned but it made me laugh so I’m keeping it. Eddie and Andy are boozing it up in another episode of Inebriated Exhumations. This time we unbox and play with voice activated robots from the amazing futuristic decade that was the 1980’s. A time when Reaganomics were in full swing, a Flock of Seagulls did more than just steal your french fries (though not much more,) and the robots actually listened to you… sometimes.
My parents never forked over their hard earned cash to buy me one of these when I was a wee lad in my super sweet burgundy corduroys and faux thriller jacket so I was genuinely excited to get to finally play with them. And much like my parents probably expected, the fun lasted about an hour and then I was over it. Thankfully, when the excitement was over, we still had all the fun of booze to keep us entertained.
Did you have one of these robots as a kid? Glad you were born in the 90's after this decade was over? Have you been so drunk you thought you were a robot?
