This week marks the return of Doone for a new season of Doone’s Digital Frontier. This time around we talk about how games can literally disappear due to them being treated as a service and not a product. We share anecdotes, random facts and more while poking fun at each other and everything else. You know, the usual for a Couch Podtatoes show. This episode also comes packed with 100% more dick jokes than usual, so don’t say you weren’t warned. We also highlight a cool project where a ton of old arcade and console games have been curated online, and think that more projects like this need to come to fruition. If you want to check out some classic games, all for free, visit the Internet Arcade at Archive.org. Thanks for listening!
