Rob “Trees” O’Connor joins us on the most Irish of days, St. Patrick’s Day.  To celebrate, we are discussing Irish video games of the past and because that only takes 5 minutes we’re also talking special edition consoles.  Yes, those $500 editions typically exclusive to Japan that make our inner fanboy reach for the wallet every time we see a new ridiculous logo on something we already own.

Opening song: The Blood of Cuchulainn by Michael Danna (popularized in the opening credits of the movie The Boondock Saints)

Closing song: Irish Drinking Song by Dropkick Murphys

Fred and Trees discuss the wonderful world of arcade games.  As this is a broad topic, all format is thrown out the window and discussions include what makes up an arcade, arcade title eras, arcade games vs. home consoles, atmosphere of arcades, MAME, and of course more games than can rightfully be named here.

Intro song is Pac-Man Fever by Buckner & Garcia

Outro song is 1980 by Dirt Nasty
