As some of you will have noticed, today is July 15, 2013, the 30th anniversary of the release of the Famicom in Japan. By some odd coincidence, Sega's first console, the SG-1000 was also released that same day, supposedly.
I considered posting some sort of special episode or something to commemorate the event, but decided against it. I already did release something about the birth of the Famicom a few years ago. It was called "Chrontendo Episode 1." If you absolutely must have more of my thoughts on July 1983, you can of course check out the first episode of the new Retronauts. And there is also US Gamer's massive Summer of 1983 series, which include a few choice quotes from me.
At the moment, my headspace is in summer 1989, not 1983. However, in commemoration of this special day, I decided to just fucking upload the first episode onto Youtube. There was no special reason why I hadn't already done this, other than I've been uploading the old episodes in reverse order. Also, for a little trip down memory lane, here is the post announcing the first episode from back in 2007.
If you have somehow not seen the first Chrontendo episode, then... enjoy, I guess?
