RUGS ARE EXPENSIVE!

You guys brought me out of a dry spell in retro gaming. Rugs are way to expensive though.

Thx for the Recco

Haven't listened to the pod, but I just finished Terranigma on SNES's recommendation. Very neat, high concept story with lots of surprisingly nuanced throwaway dialogue from side characters. Also felt strangely biblical at times.

P.S. I really wanted to like Secret of Mana for the aesthetic and music, but the gameplay was very bad. Had to drop it after getting about 6 hours in, shame really.

Chill Interviews with Cool Hosts

The hosts of this podcast, Alex and Travis, have created a great little podcast corner where you can just hang out and get to know whatever great guest they have wrangled up. They are 100% on finding interesting, positive guests that you will be excited to learn more about. Mostly in the area of video game related Youtubers, but they are not afraid to branch out. I always look forward to spending an hour with them and can practically feel my blood pressure lowering. It's like a beer for your soul.
