Episode 73: Top Ten Movie Based Games
There is a reason you don't often see movie-based video games being included on gaming "best of" lists. More often than not, a movie license is just an excuse for a publisher to make a quick buck off of name recognition alone . The list of crappy movie-based video games is long and varied, but we're aiming to identify the games that did right by their respective cinematic properties; giving fans a quality complement to their film franchise fandom. We're back, and we've added to new voices to SPB crew! Come along for our discussion of the top ten movie based games on this episode of Super Podcast Brothers!
Episode 72: Retro Gaming on Nintendo Switch
Over the last two years, the Nintendo Switch has slowly become the go-to source for retro gaming on modern console hardware. Gone are the days of waiting patiently for Virtual Console updates that rarely came. In it's place is a steady stream of arcade gems, an on-demand NES library, and plenty of retro gaming anthologies and compilations. That's right, we're leaving the comfy confines of our decades old legacy hardware to play some vintage games on modern technology.
Episode 71: 2018 Year End Special
While 2018 wasn't our most active year, we still have plenty of gaming memories to look back on. Sometimes, it was a newly discovered game, and other times we were falling in love with old favorites all over again. For Tim, it was a questionable 80's movie tie-in, while Andy finally understood why a classic Nintendo franchise is so universally beloved. Come along and join us for our fifth annual end of year special!

In gaming's early days, sometimes the only information you could find on a game was it's packaging. The internet wasn't in our pockets with highly analytical reviews just a few button presses away. No, we'd often take a blind leap of faith and hope that our hard-earned cash was going to good use with the latest purchases. On this episode, we're counting down our favorite seventy video game covers. Some of these would lead us to the purchase classic games that would forever be a part from of collections... Others, not so much. Yet, there's still plenty to discuss!
Episode 69: Sixty-Nine, Dudes!
Beware, we live! After another long hiatus, we’re back to do a little podcast housekeeping. This irregular episode of the show sees us catching up on news and happenings from the last three months and discussing what’s in store for the future. You’ll also hear us reveal which games we’d feature in our “dream arcades”; the coin-op titles that we’d choose to play and love forever.
Episode 68: Retro Soccer Games
With Major League Soccer and our beloved Loons back in action for the 2018 season, the time was right to take to the digital pitch and test our luck against digital keepers from all generations of gaming. Of course, who better than a bunch of ignorant Americans to break down the finer points of football? We'll tell you which games stand tall atop the table, and which deserve to be relegated to the lowest tiers of gaming history.
Amazing retro gaming show.
Stumbled across these guys while trying to find a good Retro Gaming podcast and boy did I strike gold. The two guys clearly know their stuff and have that wonderful combination of two friends chilling and chatting about about retro gaming and a professional show with hosts whom are experts in their field. I don't normally gel with most US podcasts (this and Retro Game Squad are the only ones) but this one has me anticipating the next fornightly release.. Top stuff.
