Episode 26 of the Ted Dabney Experience podcast is available now for your listening pleasure!
If you enjoy reading ArcadeBlogger.com, you’ll love the other project I’m involved with:
We speak with Walter Day, the grandfather of e-sports and the inspiration for Wreck-it-Ralph’s avuncular arcade manager, Mr Litwack. Walter is the founder of the long-defunct but world-famous Twin Galaxies video arcade in Ottumwa, Iowa, and the international scoreboard of the same name. Day waxes lyrical about the trials and tribulations of running an arcade during the Golden Age of electronic gaming, the films Chasing Ghosts and King of Kong, his brief stint as an oil futures trader and, of course, transcendental meditation. We also ask Walter for his official position on the ongoing furore surrounding Billy Mitchell’s Donkey Kong high-scores.
