Backtrack: Video Game Arcades

About This Episode They were dark, noisy, and not usually very clean, but we still loved going to video game arcades. In this backtrack we talk about the experience of the arcade: from scrounging for quarters under seat cushions to how we chose which games to play. It’s definitely something that had its day and […]

Halloween, Fix-It Felix Jr., & Call of Cthulhu

Backtrack: GenX Kids’ Books

I didn’t ask for much as a kid but the exception was when the Scholastic Book Fair was coming to my school! They had so many books that it was difficult to choose! Many of us developed our love for reading back then, so join us as we look back at some of the book […]

Backtrack: GenX Future Predictions

When Generation X dreamed about the future, we pictured either a technological paradise with flying cars, helpful robots, no illness and rocket ships or we pictured a wasteland brought on by some human action. Neither came true (luckily in the latter), but we’re still a ways off from where we thought we would be by […]

Venom, Tunity, & Life Is Strange 2

Backtrack: Radio Shack

“Breaker, breaker 1-9, I just eyeballed a bear trap with a bunch of Evel Knievels about 10 miles past the coop. So if you don’t want a bear bite back it down.” Huh? That was just some CB talk in honor of this week’s Backtrack Topic all about Radio Shack! Any GenX’er who was into […]

Skyscraper, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, & Smooth 4 Gimbal

In this episode, George and Mo actually agree with each other on more than one thing! Jon talks about his latest impulse buy, and we also lament over the fate of Telltale Games.

Backtrack: Collectible Cards

Before Magic the Gathering and Pokemon cards, we used to collects cards for no reason other than to have them. We had shoe boxes full of baseball cards and our binders were covered with Wacky Packs and Garbage Pail Kids stickers. In this episode we talk about our experiences with collectable cards growing up and […]

Searching, Qi Charging, & Iron Fist 2

Backtrack: Playing Outside

One, two, three…. NOT IT! How many times have you started an exhausting game of tag with those words? In this week’s GenXGrownUp Backtrack we remember playing outside. Sometimes because we wanted to and sometimes because our parents banned us from the house! We talk about playing in the dirt, playing alone and other uses […]

Happytime Murders, Galaxy Watch, & Dying Light

This week, we all admit to crying while watching a movie, George vehemently defends a TV show, Jon gives his feeling on using retro game ROMs and Mo finds a site that talks about the failed comic book heroes and villains! As usual, this is only a sampling of the discussions that take place in […]
