All your base are belong to us

Hello Outriders,

After a general dash around over the past few weeks, it was time for me to sit still with a book again. You can hear the change of pace on the podcast of course.

This week I had a long chat with Harold Goldberg, author of All Your Base Are Belong to Us. All Your Base Are Belong to Us: How Fifty Years of Video Games Conquered Pop Culture. It charts a history of the lives of game makers and takes a close look at how we are so easily beguiled by our digital adventures.

Whether your favourite games come from the golden age of the arcade, the home gaming movement or mobile phone gaming innovation, you'll probably find something in our chat and Harold's book that will surprise you.

As usual, if you have seen something online that we should know about or if you are up to something digital, then do let me know. You can email me at outriders at bbc dot co dot uk, tweet me at @BBC_Outriders or search for us on Facebook for updates between editions.

Until next week!
~ Jamillah
