    Episode 86 - NESComplex

    We invite NESComplex  (39:30) over to chat about retrospectives, declassifieds, and all things NES! Alex was there for the interview, but didn't feel well, and his file corrupted, so he got edited out COMPLETELY. I bet George Lucas wishes he could get rid of Jar Jar the way Trav got rid of Alex. Incredible stuff. The intro features questions about favorite videos from the SNESdrunk and NESfriend catalogs and ones that are under appreciated. There's also questions about repro games and indie games. Check out Indie Quest on the Polymedia Network!

AcousticKW ,

A balanced duo with a whole lotta nostalgia

I can’t recommend this more. What a good listen every very time.

huggable_dust ,

Very funny, very drunk

The two hosts are really knowledgeable and have well catered critiques and observations of tons of retro games. Very funny to hear them trail off and be more candid than what their youtube audience is used to. They also occasionally drink on pod which is fun if you are listening in your backyard tokin’ up something green! 12/10 stars!!

ScoopThatPoop ,

RUGS ARE EXPENSIVE!

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