Galaga – Episode 010

We revisit Namco to talk about what they built on with Galaxian to bring us (arguably) the best arcade game ever – Galaga!

What does an extinct species of shark have to do with spaceships? What is the proper way to pronounce Galaga? How can we leverage the technology of deep fakes to get Mr. SNK to accept his given name? Also in this episode: pickle math, the best arcade year ever, and Shmuplations (which is surprisingly not a dating site for shoot ‘em up fans).
