EPISODE 17
These are some of the oldest pieces of paper I own! Two Atari catalogs from 1981 and 1982 showcasing some fantastic art and an array of current and upcoming games. If you want to see even bigger versions of this art, check out the Art of Atari books, they’re massive and filled with loads of history on the artists and designs.

These clips, commercials, and programs go live every Saturday morning to recapture the spirit of the legendary cartoon lineups and laser-focused marketing aimed at young minds. I’ve tried to clean up the picture and sound, and render them at 1080p for a more viewable presentation. ICFTC -TV- ! Part of a nutritious breakfast!

It Came From The Collection #15: Club Turbo Catalogs

 

EPISODE 15
I loved receiving these Club Duo catalogs in the mail back in the 90’s and nowadays it serves as a snapshot of what was happening between NEC and TTi between 1992 and 1993, and how the companies displayed their software lineup to the U.S. audience. Let’s flip through three volumes and see how things evolved. Bonus! There’s a pair of Macross games that were planned for release outside of Japan that never actually happened, thanks to Harmony Gold.

Everything was a spastic montage of oversaturated, blown out, footage of people in “extreme” situations and taglines meant to “challenge the players”. In this one we’re told the good news and the bad news about these early PlayStation titles and if you’re quick enough you can even grab a few cheat codes.
