Episode 420 – Spontaneous Top Gun Carts

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 07:01:20 +0000

This week there’s a crowd-funded project to let gamers create their own NES games and we determine which version of Galaga and Pac-Man will be put into Namco’s upcoming mini arcade games. We wonder if a new 16-bit Phantasy Star game is likely to be made and try to figure out what it costs to […]

Episode 419 – The Pac And The Furious

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 08:22:02 +0000

This week we react to the World Health Organization recognizing excessive gaming as a mental health issue and we have a physical re-release of a classic SNES sh’mup. We strongly advise against trying to play Pac Man in VR near moving trains, but we do think it’s cool when someone constructs a small arcade in […]

2017 Link Clearance

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 06:00:30 +0000

Each week we discuss the latest retrogaming headlines and re-releases. Sometimes we cut items from the agenda in the interest of time or because they’re too off-topic. Other times we just plain  forget to talk about something. Whatever the case, here are all the 2017 stories we saved but didn’t cover on the show:   […]



Episode 417 – Ninjas Always Flip Out

Fri, 29 Dec 2017 06:22:52 +0000

This week we’re stretching our childhood allowance out as much as possible, and we’ve got a couple of games called Ninja Gaiden that aren’t as good as the Ninja Gaiden we remember. We play a round of Burger King Star Wars Piece of Paper Size Guessing while someone in our government is playing around on […]

This week the No Swear Gamer joins us to look back on all the retro-gaming-related ups and downs of 2017. The mysterious Ataribox has hit a minor setback before it could even start crowd-funding, and we debate whether old CRT TV’s are valuable or should be dumped in a lake. We’re dealing with Twitter contrarians, […]

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 05:30:04 +0000

This week a longstanding record in GoldenEye007 has been beaten and an eBay seller with no history wants you to watch out for fake E.T. carts.

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 21:14:37 +0000

This week the Retro League fails the Turing test, and if you want to spend half a million dollars on a SNES Classic Mini then eBay is ready to make you a deal. Without planning, we picked a couple of Atari 2600 games to talk about. We look back on a classic stealth game and […]
