Retronauts Live Episode 35: The Year(s) in Review



Hello all, and welcome to the first installment of Retronauts for 2012. Keeping with tradition, this episode features a look back 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40 years into the past -- and yes, you should be sensing a pattern at this point. This one proved a bit of a challenge, as we just entered the anniversary zone for several monumental years; in particular, the decade-long jump from '72 to '82 had console games growing from a humble diversion to an out-of-control beast that baffled and alienated consumers. And who knows what would have happened if the NES hadn't helped pull the industry out of its tailspin? My job would probably involve writing about the newest advancements in Cabbage Patch Kid technology, and that's an alternate dimension where the living envy the dead.

Thanks again to Chris Kohler, Christian Nutt, and Sam Claiborn for helping me take on these mountains of gaming history, since I would in no way have the fortitude to handle such a task on my own. And for you sticklers wondering what happened to 1997: merely jump back in time four years for episode 34 of the non-Live-Branded Retronauts. You'll be glad you did.


As always, If you'd like us to read your letter on the show and/or feature your envelope art on our blog, write to:

Note to you snail-mailers: I have a bunch of backed up letters that I'll read on next week's episode! Promise.
