The Weekend Hotness: Gaming in 1980 presented by VH1?
Check out everything Destructoid did today
Retroware TV has a regular program called The Video Game Years, an overview of a particular year's gaming highlights with commentary by web personalities and other famous faces. Basically, it's just VH1's I Love the '80s, uncomfortably awkward jokes and all. Ironically, these contributors are just as funny as the third-string comedians that VH1 roped onto its show.
The above episode, tipped to me on Twitter by 2DWill, is the first part of a retrospective on 1980, covering Pac-Man, Moncao GP, and Atari's rise to home console greatness. "Humor" aside, there are a few notable guests, such as Gamemaster Howard Phillips, Wired's Chris Kohler, and Pitfall / A Boy and His Blob creator David Crane. Plus, there are some nifty retro commercials sprinkled in, so there's some merit.
This weekend, Jonathan Holmes thinks the term "RPG" has lost its meaning, Conrad Zimmerman interviews Forza Horizon creative director Dan Greenawalt, Sup, Holmes? welcomes back Nicalis' Tyrone Rodriguez, and how many boobs can a booby chick chuck if a booby chick could chuck boobs?
