    It’s the return of the Legend of Retro. The boys are back. LPJ, Hovercraft Joe, and Jody get funky with the most unique game released in the 16 bit era. They’ll dig into the happenstance beginnings, miraculous development, and incredible soundtrack that made this a cult classic masterpiece. Then, Retro Relapse takes us back into the arcade with, perhaps, the largest beat-em-up cabinet of all-time. Finally, a new season means a new music bracket. And this one is out of this world. Game On!

    LoR: Conker's Bad Fur Day

    On this week’s episode of The Legend of Retro, the sweet, family friendly IP takes a dark turn and gets violent and starts swearing. And the game they cover does too! Be warned: there is an explicit tag on this episode as the guys let loose in the penultimate episode of the podcast. If you listen with kids, be sure to let them know how lucky they are to be listening to such mature content!

    Let’s take a trip to the past with some of your favorite retro game podcast hosts, as Chops and Craig_WK jump into the Epoch and take a trip to 1995! They look into the history of the game, the brilliant collaboration of the dream team of Japanese style role playing games, as well as the amazing music. That description might be bland, but we can always re-do it with a New Game Plus! To finish off the episode, the dynamic duo talk about a Retro Relapse that was too hot to handle in a previous episode. We hope you enjoy hearing about the greatest JRPG of all time!

    LoR: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

    LoR: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

    One day, quite by accident, a gate to The Legend of Retro was opened by a gang of podcasters skilled in the black arts. This land was like no other. In the gathering twilight, the episode shone from its resting place high above the world. In a long running battle, the leader of the podcasters fought his way past his followers Xander and The Glitch in lust for the episode on Link to the Past. After vanquishing his own followers, the leader stood triumphant over the episode and grasped it with his blood-stained hands. He heard a whispered voice: “If thou hast a strong desire or dream, wish for it…” And in reply, the roaring laughter of the host echoed across time and space and even reached the far-off listeners. The name of this king of podcasters is Craig_WK, but he is known by his alias Mandrag Craig, which means Craig of the Legend of Retro.

    LoR: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

    Having just made it back onto the streets of Legend of Retro after a long stretch on the inside, TheGlitch is sent to Vice City by his old Boss, Craig_WK. But all does not go smoothly upon his arrival in the glamorous, hedonistic metropolis of Vice City. TheGlitch is set up and loses everything. Craig wants his money back, but the biker gangs, Cuban gangsters, and corrupt politicians stand in his way. Most of Vice City seems to want TheGlitch dead. His only answer is to fight back and take over the city himself. Oh, and Xander’s here too.

Awesome and informative

Love the podcast and how deep you go with the games and share personal stories of each game. You guys have to change that intro though. The into of “...by you, no not me the fans or no, not you” is super cringey

The best retro podcast. I’m going to miss them and I just found them!

Fun, but amateur, but fun

I like the personalities a lot, but they way they consistently state incorrect information and usually none of them know enough to correct it is a little irritating/surprising. To be honest I have been listening to episodes recently just to hear often they make errors. It’s been entertaining.
