I miss video game cartridges.
They were sturdy and more fun to handle. No need to worry about fingerprints or gingerly placing them in a tray or slot. Just jam those suckers in your console and away you go! Heck, you could dropkick those suckers across the room if you didn't mind getting grounded.
The amount of space is limited only by cost. You could have battery backups and even custom chips (remember the Super NES's FX chip?). They were faster too! No installing and rarely any loading!
I say it's time to bring carts back! Who's with me?!
Well, that's what this week's poll is for. If you long for the return of carts, you know how to cast your vote. Happy with optical discs? What's wrong with you? I mean, there's a response option for you too! Perhaps you prefer digital downloads to any physical media (you weirdo).
Vote in the poll and let us know your preference then jump in the comments section and argue with each other about the superiority of your favorite format! Come on, it'll be fun! You can even send us an email at SuperPACpodcast@gmail.com if you're so inclined.
EZK and I will reveal the poll results on the next podcast. Look forward to it!
