In 2018, the ATARI BYTES podcast life support systems malfunctioned, freezing the host and leaving him in suspended animation. When he was revived five hundred years later, no one had a podcast app.
The future is scary, friends.
But the future is a safe space in episode 134, BUCK ROGERS PLANET OF ZOOM from Sega, 1982. Why? Because Buck is here protecting us. Well, not actually US. He's protecting Planet Zoom. Or fighting it? And I guess it's never really clear that it's Buck in the ship. Could be Luke Skywalker for all I know.
Basically, we have questions about this game. But not about the story (we made up) within the game. That is quite good. *Pats self on back. Cries over dislocated shoulder.*
