RetroCollect FM - Retro Gaming Podcast - Issue 05: Defending The Atari Jaguar

RetroCollect-FM-Issue-05-Defending-The-Atari-JaguarSo the 64-bit beast known as the Atari Jaguar might not have the best rap around, but why is that? After sitting down with one of the biggest Atari nuts in the UK, RetroCollect discuss what went wrong with the Jaguar and why it should actually be given a fair trial in the gaming world.

As you'd expect, anything deemed a commercial failure is never as simple as it seems. From magazines shunning Atari, incorrect facts being thrown around, poorly timed launches, and the arrival of developers unwilling to use unfamiliar chips, there are more than enough reasons as to why the Atari Jaguar never took flight.

With plenty to be discussing, RetroCollect FM's hosts Tom and Katsu spend a good hour talking with Kieren Hawken, not only about his love for the system, but also about the system's greatest (and worse) releases. Prepare to be amazed, conflicted and torn apart by the Jaguar as we get to the bottom of Atari's downfall.

And as usual, be sure to power-up listening to our brand new podcast intro theme put together by the legendary chiptune artist Shirobon.
