Our 10th full length episode! Tony, Mark, and newbie Jake sit down and hash out the truly dismal Star Wars Holiday Special and the decent for its time NES shooter, Gradius. What did you think about The Star Wars Holiday Special? Did you hate it as much as we did? Do you think it should be a part of the official cannon? Gradius was one of the truly revolutionary early shooters implementing a bunch of features never before seen to advance the genre forward. Many others developers owe this shooter for the template to work off of for years to come. What are your favorite shooters of all time? What would have made the Star Wars special better, if anything? Let us know in the comments!
