Joystik Mag 1983: Donkey Kong Jr. and Joust

This blog post is dedicated to Christina and Eliot, big fans of the retro games. I remember getting to the 10th "eggwave" (beyond level 50) in 2 player Joust with Eliot. Its totally possible we got way farther than that but as one of my proudest gaming achievements I do not want to overstate it. Thank you for supporting my Quake 2 gaming history videos on Patreon!

Nick Michaels: An Unforgettable Voice

A legendary broadcaster, who I have been listening to since I was in my first job, late night dishwasher at a fine dining club in Chicago, passed away this past weekend.

I have no doubt that the spirit lives on, in the Deep End.
