SGJ Podcast #171 – Classic Hardware Redux

Voodoo2's Were the Business...
Voodoo2’s Were the Business…

Hey friends, welcome to this episode of the space Game Junkie Podcast! In this episode, Jim and I welcome back the Upper Memory Block Pocast’s Joe Mastroianni to talk classic computer gaming hardware, since his internet totally died last time. We’re big fans of older hardware around here, especially stuff like Roland’s MT-32 and SC-55 MIDI modules, which you get to hear during the show! Speaking of which, this is the first show in which I’m using the VoiceMeter Banana mixer program to mix the audio, so if you have any comments or suggestions about it, I’d love to hear it. We had a very fun and spirited discussion about all this great old hardware too. Retro gaming is so great. :)

Next week on the show, we have a very special guest. Back in the 80s, there was the Star Fleet series of games, and they were awesome. I was fortunate enough to get in touch with the lead creator/designer, Trevor Sorensen!  email us at or hit us up on the forums.
