Galaxian – Episode 007

Mission: Destroy Aliens!

Arcade games enter the world of color (or so the non-colorblind tell us). We dig into the history of NAMCO which started with rocking horses and – with some unintended help from the Yakuza – eventually gave us the most popular arcade games ever made. How did pinball lead to Pac-Man? Is George Lucas gonna sue somebody? What happened to Galagas 2 through 87? We also cover a Breakout in Japan, the biggest arcade game ever, and superior humility.
