    RGSR 004 - Panzer Dragoon Trilogy

    Resurrecting our long-dead radio series until our main show can resume production, we bring to you the outstanding music of the Panzer Dragoon Trilogy on the Sega Saturn, a testament to how artistic a series about laser-spitting dragons can truly be.

    RGS 060 - On-Rail Shooters

    Speeding towards the horizon, we turn our attention towards the On-Rails Shooter genre by taking aim at games such as Panzer Dragoon, Star Fox 64, Sin and Punishment, and more. We also deliberate over our Retro Game of 2019, and Jon proclaims that a certain F-Zero clone is more influential than it actually is.

    RGS 059 - Second Looks

    Celebrating our 7th anniversary with our biggest episode yet, we re-visit some games that we covered in the first year of our show, such as Powerslave, Galactic Attack, Alien Crush, and more. We also bring in our guest Alex (@retr0drift on Twitter) to educate us on restoring & repairing retro gaming hardware, and we wonder how long it would take a Ninja Turtle to surf from Key West to Manhattan.

    RGS 058 - Sega Saturn strikes back!

    Lest we get pummeled by Segata Sanshiro himself, we dedicate another entire episode to Sega's 32-bit wonder, the mighty Sega Saturn. Covering unique titles such as Astal, Fighter's Megamix, Deep Fear, and more, we also talk about recent developments in the Saturn community, the current state of Saturn emulation, new ways to play Saturn games in 2019, and Jon shocks Jeff and Alex with a happy bombshell.

    Joined by returning guest Retro Nick, the squad unites to take on some cooperative games such as Dungeon Explorer II, Lost Vikings 2, Darius Gaiden and more. We also play (a hilarious) Round 4 of "Name That Tune", and Nick expresses his profound disdain for kale, KOTOR, and the PlayStation's lack of light gun standards.

The best

In my opinion this is the best retro game podcast out there. The amount of detail thats given to the listeners is by far the greatest of any other retro podcast. The three reviewers are all friendly guys and are always ready for a laugh. Just a shame its not weekly orveveb monthly its that good.

<missing> essentials! ,

Good Clean(ish) Retro Fun.

Great podcast. Good balance of humour, fact and opinion. My personal favourites have been the Shmup podcasts, the NeoGeo podcast and the Sega Saturn podcast.
Keep up the good work.

Edit :-
The Podcast may be coming to an end but I would urge any retro gaming fan to listen from the start. Excellent podcast - will be missed.

Latest :-

Podcast is now quarterly. The episodes are usually a good 3hours long. Still great listening.
