Covered in episode nine of the Commodore Chronicles podcast.

1) A new segment, The Commodore Years, a rapid fire grouping of recommendations by year.  This episode features the Commodore year of 1982.

2) Three bits of news.

3) Reviews of Bagman Comes Back and Bagman Strikes Back by LC Games, Galaga C64 by Arlasoft and Zeta Wing by Witchsoft.

With the introduction of Fine and Tandy, we’re going to see a few changes in the Commodore Chronicles.  Rather than normally featuring multiple titles per show, both the Commodore Chronicles and Fine and Tandy will feature a single review per episode.  The reviews will more in depth though.  Plus, this will yield an episode of each per month.  So twice the me…  If that’s a good or not, I’ll let you decide.

As for our next title on the Commodore Chronicles, we’ll be featuring the classic Lucasarts Point and Click Maniac Mansion.

And for the first episode of Fine and Tandy, we’re going to cover the isometric puzzle platformer, D/Generation.
