The Real D Mo ,

Great podcast!!

Big fan of the podcast. I’ve listened to almost every episode in a matter of a few weeks. Love the format of the show. I’m a huge Super Nintendo fan and collector, so of course I’d love to see more reviews of those games. Keep up the good work on entertaining us retro nerds!!!

Excellent Podcast focused on Retrogaming!

I love this podcast! It is mostly about retrogaming stuff and always has great discussion point and a fun review of a game at the end. The guys have a great time and you can tell they are really into the stuff they are covering!

If you are into old Nintendo, Sega or any other retro games, check this one out!

Nice retro gaming podcast

In this podcast 2 guys go over retro gaming news and then review a retro game (so far it's almost always an NES or SNES game). Their news is interesting and so is their commentary. The only complaint I have with the podcast is that I wish they went into more depth with the game reviews. A couple episodes went long on the intro and news that I feel like there was only about 5 minutes worth of it, but that may be an exaggeration. In all though it's entertaining if you like retro gaming and it has got me to buy some games on the Virtual Console.

Update: The reviews have gotten longer and more in depth. Thanks!
