Episode 223 appears to be like on the handheld that beat Sport Boy to the punch


Forward of its time or only a destined catastrophe? We discover the groundbreaking Sport Pocket Pc.

A brief bonus episode this week, however it’s a radical one. Generally, 27 minutes is all you have to cowl a subject in exhaustive depth, and that is undoubtedly the case with Epoch’s Sport Pocket Pc. Buddy of the present Alex Forsyth joined us at Midwest Gaming Basic final month to lastly sate my curiosity about this odd little system—a medium-resolution monochrome moveable handheld almost as highly effective as Sport Boy, however which shipped in 1984. That is 5 years earlier than Sport Boy! It looks as if the GPC ought to have been a runaway hit, however it disappeared nearly as rapidly because it debuted. And that is why this episode is so temporary: With solely seven titles launched (two of which have been in-built to the {hardware}, and all of that are represented on the duvet artwork), there’s simply not that a lot to say concerning the Sport Pocket Pc. However hey, we talked about it! This is likely to be the world’s most complete podcast dialogue of the subject.

You could discover I consult with this episode as a “section”—I had initially meant to run it as a B-side of the Sport Boy dwell dialogue and run the Heiankyo Alien panel individually. The Heiankyo panel did not work as a standalone because of the audio points, so I switched plans after the very fact. Now you already know.
