Personal Retro Gaming
In this episode:
- We don't tend to be big retro gamers,
but that doesn't mean we don't have tons of fond memories tied to
- Our personal experience with games
from our childhood and adolescence are considered retro games,
which is kind of hard to deal with. But we do. For you
- We discuss some of the first
experiences we have with gaming, some of the best experiences of
our lives and how they shaped us into the responsible(?) adults we
are, and how some games are better relegated to the past instead of
- Initially, we expected this to be a
super short topic, but as you can guess, the discussion went places
that we didn't expect, and we ended up going to some pretty cool
places regarding retro games (such as why don't Sega games hold up
as well as Nintendo ones? Why can you buy a Sega collection and
console at a yard sale for a quarter, but can't even find a NES
Classic for $500 these days?) Cool stuff like that.
- Beej got unstuck in FFV, started
Assassin’s Creed 2, tried Mighty Number 9, sampled Doomfist
(DOOOOOOOOOOOOMFIST), and returned to Game of Thrones.
- Void read a bunch of things including
the new FFV Boss Fight Book, the Battlefront II Star Wares prequel
novel, and starting book 3 of the Bobiverse. He also played
The Sexy Brutale, more FFV, more Splatoon 2, and even gave Stranger
Things another shot.
