Gaming Myths Vol.2 - Feat. Atari E.T. Burial, Final Fantasy VIII Theories & Killswitch

September 3, 2020

Ten scary gaming myths and urban legends that rocked the gaming world.

We look at how the E.T. Atari 2600 game almost destroyed an industry and was dumped in a landfill. Can you play as Rebecca in Resident Evil 2? Did Killswitch, a game that uninstalls itself actually exist? And lots more stories to get your teeth into!

*Warning - this podcast contains adult themes (LOL) so it's up to you to shield your offspring or those of a sensitive disposition. Or let them loose on the madness!*

Adult theme jokes aside we're back! With another gaming myths podcast! I'd like to say it's because the first one went so well but it's due to the fact that Adrian found too many to fit in one! Ha ha!

This week we tackle myths concerning games uninstalling themselves, a certain Final Fantasy VIII theory and what actually happened to those "spare" copies of the Atari E.T among many other weird and wacky tales. We also laugh at our own conspiracy theories.
