Three guys get together every couple weeks and discuss a "classic" game from the 32-bit era of consoles back to the dawn of the hobby. Tie-in podcast to Retrovania.net.

    Episode 148 : Resident Evil Code Veronica (Dreamcast)

    Episode 148 : Resident Evil Code Veronica (Dreamcast)

    For our first episode of #Retroween2021, we're revisiting a series we haven't covered since 2017 -- we're looking at the Dreamcast entry in the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Code Veronica!  This is one of the last games in the series to have the "Tank controls" that the original game did, and it was the first in the series on (what was at the time) a next generation console.  This one hasn't had a remake yet-- is it one that should?


    We also answer a TON of listener mail, so stick around to see if we answered yours!


    Want to get right to the game?  So did we-- just start listening!

    Episode 147 : Metroid Zero Mission (Game Boy Advance)

    Episode 147 : Metroid Zero Mission (Game Boy Advance)

    Metroid Dread is on it's way, but it's going to show up in October, and we'll be busy with our annual month of horror games.  However, we are very excited about Metroid Dread, and so we're taking a look at the 2004 remake of the original Metroid -- Metroid: Zero Mission for the Game Boy Advance.


    We also talk about the most recent Nintendo Direct and answer some listener mail about getting burned out, tastes changing over the years, and some Final Fantasy.


    Want to get right to Metroid: Zero Mission?  Jump to that 16 minute mark.

    Episode 146 : Syphon Filter (Playstation)

    Episode 146 : Syphon Filter (Playstation)

    After talking way too much about Psychonauts 2, we dove into Sony's Syphon Filter, a 3d action game that sold well enough to have 5 sequels, and is included on the Playstation mini -- but is this worthy of being called a classic, or is this one better left in 1999?


    We also take some more listener mail all about cartridge systems in 2021, more flight sim music, and I'd bet a question somehow relating to food.


    Don't want to hear about Psychonauts 2? I don't know why you would, but head on over to the 10:30 mark!

    Episode 145 : James Bond 007 (Game Boy)

    Episode 145 : James Bond 007 (Game Boy)

    This time we're taking a Patron request to cover the 1998 Nintendo Game Boy game, James Bond 007! After Goldeneye was a smash on the N64, this game came out the next year for Nintendo's handheld -- but was it a first person shooter, a stock platformer, or something else entirely?  We were pleasantly surprised with what we got here.


    Also discussed, more Final Fantasy XIV, listener questions about our health habits, and even squeezed in some game talk in here someplace.

    Episode 144 :Spider-Man and Venom Maximum Carnage (SNES)

    This time we're taking another Patron request, and this time it's Planemech asking us to cover the Super Nintendo comic book brawler Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage!  Based on the comic book event of the same name, does this game hold up now, or like many super hero related games from the era does it just fall flat?  Listen to find out.


    We also had a bunch more questions sent in from our listeners, and we answered them -- all your questions about arcade game preferences, bad memories that taint a gaming experience, what IS retro anyway, and more!


    Want to get right to the action?  Websling over to the 7:50 mark!

    Episode 143 : Castlevania Aria of Sorrow (GBA)

    Episode 143 : Castlevania Aria of Sorrow (GBA)

    This episode we're taking a Patron request from "Logan" who has asked us to cover Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, the third game in this series on the Game Boy Advance.   We've shown our love for the 16-bit Castlevania's and Symphony of the Night in the past, but is this a stumble for the series like some of the earlier handheld offerings?  We'll tell you what we thought.


    We also haven't been a full trio for a while, so we've got over an hour of listener mail to tackle.  Let's see if we lost our minds (at least more than usual)


    Want to jump right to the game? We skipped talking about our disasterous real lives and so we pretty much jump right into things this week.

Matt The Drag Stan ,

Thank you! Hope for even more to come

Thanks for dedicating your show to such iconic and fun games of the past. I enjoy the lack of elitism in the communication style of the podcasters. Easy to jump into.

Tron Jelly ,

The best

People at work say I have a good attitude, and it’s because I’m laughing listening to these dudes

Layzee Jane ,

Genuine enthusiasm, chill vibes!

These dudes are just chatting games, and having a great time. Energy is great, friendship makes conversations natural. They can get into game design details, but tend to keep things high level and focused on what makes games fun, which is welcome.

Looking forward to more. Great show!
