    Red face Armchair Arcade TV and Radio

    Episode 3 - Satans Hollow

    In case anyone is interested, I posted a video overview of one of my favorite arcade games of all time (along with Pooyan), Satans Hollow. I look at the arcade version, Atari 8-bit/5200, Commodore 64 (C-64), and GameCube/PS2/Xbox/Windows versions.

    All of the details are available here: http://www.armchairarcade.com/neo/node/3167

    Thanks Bill, I'll give it a listen. It'll be interesting to hear your views on Europe.

    Great, I'm looking forward to Christina's segment, as my wife always professes a dislike of video games but happily plays her DS until 2am most nights, being somewhat of an insomniac.

    Will it be available via rss feed at some point?

    The information and links for the RSS feed and iTunes are in the linked blog post. :-)

    Christina does make a comment of sorts about what makes a gamer. I guess - at least based on what she says - your wife is definitely a gamer too. Congrats. ;-)
