Great Retro Nostalgia Talk

My hands down favorite retro games podcast. Kevin is an awesome host and you really feel his excitement for old games. He has great guests including *the best* Mike Mika.

Unfortunately, new episodes are now pretty rare but it’s still a great one to listen to.

Where'd it go?!

Terrific retro podcast (that does veer modern very occasionally) with some of the best guests in video game talk (the first few episodes is more just friends chatting, which is fun too) that is actually pretty interesting even to start at the beginning episode. When this cast started, video games hadn't quite 'boomed' yet, so as it goes on you live through it with them. Luckily I had most of my collection from the 90's BUT listening along clued me in to the changing times. Hagane now 500$?! I got it for 6$... oh the good ol days... anyway, back to the point, Kevin is a great host, Josh is a fun sidekick (and missed when not around), and this is one of the best retro/nostalgia video game podcasts ever! Just wish they were still coming out...

Frustrating

This podcast can be entertaining... provided you enjoy listening to people reminisce about games they grew up with, or games they’re experiencing for the first time. If you’re looking for anything more informative, you should check out Retronauts.

Why did I give this podcast such a low score? The host, Kevin, can be frustrating to listen to. Like a temperamental child, once he’s made an opinion, he isn’t interested in listening to alternate points of view. He’s also very quick to get on the defensive, and has a bad tendency of interrupting and talking down to his guests.

Like most modern ‘gamers’ the regulars on this podcast are quick to complain about video games that “hold the players hand” yet are quick to call a game ‘garbage’ when a game provides any challenge that prohibits them from beating it on their first play through.
