This week, we chat about a recent cooking mishap, then break into some fortune cookies before the Rev endorses the Kung Fu Panda movie. That doesn’t seem all that strange until you realize that we’re the podcast who told you you’re not allowed to list The Shawshank Redemption as your favorite movie. We also don’t like E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.
But we do love video games, even licensed ones, so we talk about those after the break.
What was the earliest licensed game we could find? Why are licensed games typically so bad? Were licensed games the root cause of the video game crash of 1983? We also dig into advergames, though we can’t figure out where the animosity between snakes and Skittles started, nor can we tell whether the world loves or hates Yo! Noid. Either way, we’ve got plenty of factoids for you, folks, because that’s how we do it here on Half-Glass Gaming.
(Speaking of advergames, we didn’t mention this in the episode, but Spot Goes to Hollywood was another fine example.)
So prep your eardrums for some podcast magic. We’re off!
