I suck at them, and none of my friends were into them back in the day, so I didn't have anyone to play with anyway. But for some damned reason, Left 4 Dead just struck a cord with me. I don't know if it was the zombie thing, the co-op thing, or the catchy name thing, but I played the HELL out of these games back in the day.    I started playing them again over the past few weeks to get ready for this podcast, and I can't believe how well they hold up. Left 4 Dead will never be left for dead, because players can't get enough of shooting zombies and getting puked on and all that good stuff.    My buddy Tyler loves getting puked on. He also loves Left 4 Dead. And we talked about the latter love on this week's podcast. I had almost as fun fun talking about Left 4 Dead as I did playing it, and I hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed talking.   And before we slay some zombies, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, someone asks what my back-up plan was, should RTG have fallen apart in its early days. Why don't I cover more handheld games? And after my girlfriend made her podcast debut on Expansion Pass last week, is she planning to come back on the show anytime soon?   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 zombie-centric games from the Left 4 Dead era: Deadrising, State of Decay, and Dead Island.

I think Mario sports, and frankly, couch multiplayer, peaked on the Nintendo GameCube. So any chance I have to blow smoke up one of those game's asses, I'm gonna start blowing. And what better way to praise a game, than to dedicate an entire episode of a crappy podcast to it?? We're talking the phenomenal Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour this week. The gameplay can be as deep, or as simple, as you want it to be. And the graphics, courses, modes, and gameplay still hold up twenty years later.    RTG's resident artist, Joe Gillespie, makes his podcast debut this week, and we talked about how awesome Toadstool Tour is, despite having some bullshit holes (looking at YOU, King Bobomb). If you never played this one, you missed out. Don't let Mario Golf: Super Rush fool you, Mario Golf used to be the shit.   And before we talk birdies and pipes, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we get into the Nintendo Switch's quest to dethrone the PlayStation 2 as the best-selling console ever, and whether or not Switch and Switch Lite sales should be combined. Where should someone that's new to the GameCube start? And y'all know I love The Simpsons, but what are my top 3 animated series of all-time?   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features the remaining 3 GameCube Mario sports heavyweights: Mario Superstar Baseball, Super Mario Strikers, and Mario Power Tennis.

But "weird" doesn't always mean "bad". I love indie games for their creativity and off-the-wall ideas, and this game plays like an indie game from 1993. And it was made by EA of all companies. It's Haunting Starring Polterguy! You control this dead punk skater looking dude, and go from house to house terrorizing a family of four. It's hilarious, weird, and I like it.    RTG Supporter Hawgzilla sponsored this episode, and it was great chatting with him and finding out why he has such an odd attachment to such an odd game. And then I lay into Polterguy and explain why I think this really is a hidden gem on the Genesis, albeit maybe one without a lot of replay value.   And before we scare some kids, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about new console generations, and if console developers give up on old consoles too quickly? I find out what Polybius is (spoiler: it's terrifying). And does a Steam Deck make you a PC Master Racer??   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 terrifying Genesis games: Michael Jackson's Moonwalker, Splatterhouse 2, and Ecco The Dolphin.

Punch! It's all in the mind...including that song, that's almost 100% stuck in your head now. We're kicking the year off by talking PaRappa the Rapper! I always wanted to play this one back in the day, but it was always rented when I'd go to Blockbuster. I finally gave it a chance over the holidays, and while I'm 100% convinced it was written and designed by people on drugs, it didn't take away from the fact that it's charming, hilarious, and pretty damned fun.   The guy that started this stupid show with me back in 2018, my buddy Chris, gave me a call to rap (see what I did there?) about PaRappa. He even spit some funky lyrics himself, and we had a great time talking about one of the original PlayStation's flagship titles.   And before we crack crack crack the egg into the bowl, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, someone asks if we'll ever do another guest hosted episode like the Majora's Mask show from last year. How do I decide which games I'm gonna play for the podcast out of the hundreds (literally) of suggestions I get from everyone? And what's the deal with "purple monkey dishwasher"?   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 old school rhythm games: Um Jammer Lammy, Bust-A-Groove, and Space Channel 5.  
Happy holidays, hot dogs! We were gonna take the week off, but I wanted do something special for y'all as a thank you for making 2022 such a great year for the show. So I decided to play a game that people have been calling one of the GOATs for years - Valve's Portal.    And yeah, this is one of the GOATs. I get it. I'm not sure how it did it, but it not only lived up to the hype; it exceeded it.    My companion cube, Mark McCue, joined me on the show this week for a very positive, happy, cake filled (?) episode of Remember The Game? to wrap up 2023. Ypu've been asking for a Portal episode, and after playing it, I'm all too happy to oblige.   And before we chase some cake, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, someone asks if PlayStation will come up with their own Call of Duty, should the Activision sale go through. Would I ever consider taking this podcast to one of the big gaming sites/networks? And what the hell is Boxing Day??   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of Valve's best: Counter-Strike, Half-Life, and Left 4 Dead.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   I remember when Castle Crashers first released on the Xbox 360 back in the day. I really wanted to play it, but none of my buddies were into a game like this, and I assumed playing it alone would suck. All these years later, I've finally spent a few weeks with it, and it's frigging awesome. Playing alone isn't that bad, and I finally have people to play it with, too!   It slots in to a pretty high spot on my favourite beat 'em up games of all-time, and I'm pretty jacked to finally be giving it a turn in the RTG spotlight. Long time hot dog, Holms, sponsored this episode, so he swung by the show to explain why he likes Castle Crashers so much, and to talk about what it was like carrying me through. couple games.    And then my good buddy Tyler makes his return to the show to get into the countless hours he spent crashing castles back in the day while also schooling me on the history of Newgrounds (I'm such a boomer...). This game kicks ass, and I hope this episode of the show does it justice!   And before we crash castles, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, someone asks if there are any games I regret playing for the podcast. Do I have any old gaming habits that I haven't been able to shake? And I answer the trillion dollar question: sandwiches or burritos??   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 OG Xbox Arcade games: Trials HD, Shadow Complex, and Braid.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   Ape Escape is one of those games I've been hearing about since before I started this show. It shows up on every "Best PlayStation Games" list out there, and a lot of people seem to have a really soft spot for it from back in the day. I never played it when it released, and I was chapped when it didn't make the cut on the PlayStation Classic because I've always wanted to see what all the hype is about.    Well, now I have. And while yeah, it is kind of a giant tech demo for the DualShock analog sticks, it's also just a really charming little game. You travel from location to location hunting down apes (that are fucking hilarious) and every once and a while you race this kid through weird futuristic obstacle courses, and really isn't that al we want in our games?   My buddy Keegs is one of those "grew up loving this game" kids, and he gave me a call to talk about Spikde, Spector, shitty Jake, and our adventures hunting escaped apes. We're finally talking Ape Escape, and RTG is better because of it.   And before we catch apes, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about feeling out of touch with the younger gamers today. Someone asks my opinion on letting their kids play violent games. And I'm a huge fan of The Simpsons, but how does that translate into my comedy?   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of the highest scoring PlayStation games on Metacritic: PaRappa The Rappa, Wipeout XL, and Syphon Filter.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   One of the coolest things about hosting this podcast over the past 200+ episodes is discovering "new" retro games that I missed out on back in the day. And Alundra is a prime example of that. It's an action RPG from the original PlayStation (incredibly influenced by The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past) and after spending about 40 hours of my life with it, I can safely say this was a diamond in the rough that I skipped over.    If you've never played it before, you play as, well, Alundra. You're on a ship that crashes on a beach and you tackle dungeons to track down 7 crests to save the world with your sword and magical items and...look, I know it sounds a lot like Zelda, and it is. But give it a chance. There's a focus on puzzles, a better story than just about anything Link has ever done, it looks gorgeous, and you can freaking JUMP!   Long-time hot dog and Alundra fan Timmy The Exuberant Turtle sponsored this episode, and he swung by to tell me why he likes this game so much (along with sharing the phenomenal origin of his online handle), and then I hogged the mic for a while and explained what I liked, loved, and hated about the superb PSOne classic, Alundra.    And before we invade some dreams, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we get into dealing with that problem every gamer has where you're excited to play games, but can't decide what to play! Someone asks for my opinion on the Switch vs the Switch Lite (and I stumble through it), and what game(s) do I turn to when I'm feeling blue?   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 "lesser known" PlayStation RPGs: Dragon Valor, Star Ocean, and Brave Fencer Musashi.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   This episode was tricky, because there was no way in hell we weren't gonna hit Earthbound up for a re-visited episode at some point, but I feel like I talk about this game all the time. What's left to say??   You know I love it. I know most of you love it. I could've just spent another hour talking about loving it. And we did, for a big portion of the episode. But we also pulled back the curtain a little bit and talked about a few of the minor, nit-picky faults that Earthbound has. Because as much as I adore it, it isn't quuuuite perfect.   My younger brother Josh returns to the show this week, and we went back and forth on one of the most treasured games of our childhoods, on one of the most treasured consoles in history. Earthbound may be mainstream now, but Josh and I loved it back when everyone thought it stunk. Literally.    And before we eat Hamburgers and SMAAASSSHHHh, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, a listener asks if I'll ever do another interview style episode of the show. We get into the Michael Bay TMNT movies, and why us fans need to stick together. And doI have any advice for a new Slay The Sire player???   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 "lesser known" SNES RPGs: Breath of Fire II, Lufia, and Illusion of Gaia.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   I've never hidden the fact that I missed out on most of the big PlayStation 2 games back in the day, and every freaking time I try one, I grow a little fonder of that little black box. But of all the beauties I've fired up on the PS2 over the past couple years, Sly Cooper might just my favourite.   People have been on me to play this game for years, and now that I'm done, I can't freaking wait to sink my teeth into the rest of the trilogy. It still looks great, plays perfect, and to be honest, I've thought long and hard about slapping a rare perfect score on this one. Will Sly join the incredibly exclusive 10/10 club? Give us a listen and find out.   My buddy Darren is the biggest Sly Cooper fan I know, and we spent almost an hour talking about how phenomenal this game is, and how badly we wish Sucker Punch would revive the series.   And before we steal books, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about the miss that Pokemon Violet & Scarlet appears to be, and speculate about what the hell happened. Are "service" games like GTA Online and Destiny handcuffing developers? And why exactly do I hate the Sega Saturn??   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of the PlayStation 2's best: Metal Gear Solid 3, Silent Hill 2, and Kingdom Hearts.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   It's the busiest time of the year for my comedian alter ego, so I thought I'd give myself a break and commit to watching a 2 hour movie, instead of playing through a twenty hour video game this month. We tossed a bunch of old video game flicks on the Patreon Poll, and 1995's Mortal Kombat came out on top.    I've heard so much about this movie, and I remember the soundtrack being huge back when I was a kid, but I don't think I ever watched it. So a couple weeks ago, I finally subjected myself to the original MK flick, and I have a lot to say about it. You want to know if I liked it? Loved it? Hated it? You're gonna have to listen to the episode!   My buddy and fighting game fanatic Mike The Ref is my guest this week, and we had a long chat about whether or not this movie is good, and I blew smoke of Johnny Cage's ass, because he's the man, of course.    And before we dig into this bad boy, I piece together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, a listener writes in praising game devs that include extra accessibility options in their games. What would I change about Yoshi? And have my gaming tastes changed as I've gotten older??   Plus we have a rare round of 'WATCH One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 90's gaming flicks: Double Dragon, Street Fighter, and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.   And as Mike mentioned, he'll be streaming for 12 straight hours to raise money for Jack.org the day this episode goes live!

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   In hindsight, it probably would have made more sense to talk about a sequel, or some game that ends in '2', considering this is episode 222, but we don't do the whole "logic" thing around here. So instead, we're talking about a game that many people don't consider all that good, but that I've had a soft spot in my heart for ever since I was a kid - Bubsy!!   It looks great, sounds good, and plays...not that well, but I don't care. I've wanted to give Bubsy his moment in the spotlight since I started this podcast, and that day has come. My buddy Keegs is my guest this week, and we're talking air gliding, yarn balls, constant deaths, and stupid shirts. "What could possibly go wrong!?!?"   And before we dig into this bad boy, I piece together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, a concerned listener writes in about the future of physical games. Was the Virtual Boy where VR gaming started? And do I ever get nervous about playing really hyped up games for the first time?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 crappy animal mascots: Gex: Enter the Gecko, Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, and Aero the Acro-Bat.   Don't forget, both Keegs and I are taking part in Extra-Life this weekend, to raise money for the Stollery Children's Hospital here in Edmonton.    I'll be streaming on Twitch for 24 straight hours, Nov 12 - 13, 8am - 8am (Mountain). Find all the info at RememberTheGamePodcast.com   And Keegs and his friends will be running TWO 12 hour days of games this weekend.

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   We're running a little behind on our Patreon Poll winner episodes right now, but I'm working on it! In August, Star Wars Episode I: Racer came out on top of the poll, and 2 months later, I've bought it, played it, and suckered one of my friends into talking to me about it.   This was a tricky episode for me, because it's a game I never played growing up that a ton of you are nostalgic for, based on a franchise I don't really know that well, in a genre I could live without, on a system I don't like very much. I was worried this would be another Sonic Adventure 2, but it wasn't. The deck was stacked against this bad boy, but it's too damned fun for me to hate (even if I suck asssss at it).   Former RTG Hall of Fame Mark McCue is back this week for another tantalizing chat about an old video game, and we got into the Light Side, and the Dark Side, of the beloved Star Wars Episode I: Racer.    And before we crash over and over again, I piece together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about what happens to the games that come up short on Patreon Polls. What single player games would we like to see made into co-op titles? And is Nintendo's Switch Online Expansion Pack worth the extra money if you're just interested in a few N64 games?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 retro Star Wats titles: Rogue Squadron, Super Star Wars, and Shadows of the Empire.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

It's the episode before Halloween, so of course we have to cover one more "scary" game. And I can't think of a better option than one of the OG scary games, and honestly, just one of the best games on the NES altogether: Castlevania.    This bad boy has been near the top of the "most requested" list for years now, but the issue was that I just didn't play a ton of it growing up. I used to rent it sometimes, but the Medusa heads and stairs gave me nightmares and I never went back. So I spent 3 days just binging the game in preparation of this podcast, and we actually recorded it minutes after I beat the game on stream (and I was still pretty riled up).    My boy Mark McCue is my guest this week (he spent a large chink of this past week playing Castlevania to get ready for this episode as well), and we had a great time talking about stupid stairs, evil Medusa heads, a certain fight against a certain dead guy, and most importantly, about why Castlevania is an all-time classic.   And before we fall through some stairs, I scrape together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about the impact Goldeneye 007 will have on Nintendo's Switch Online subscriber count. Is the Xbox Series S becoming an issue? And can Pokemon only say their names, or are they named after the only word they can say??   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Konami NES classics: Base Wars, Metal Gear, and Top Gun.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I can't definitively say what game we get the most requests to cover on the show, but I know Grand Theft Auto IV is near the top of the list. And after spending a massive chunk of the past couple weeks playing it, it's time to go bowling (if you know, you know).    I've never been the biggest fan of the GTA series. I think they're fun to fuck around in, but the only one I played around the time of it's release was Vice City, which I didn't love. I finally played San Andreas a couple years ago and adored it, and I've been jonesing to play IV and V ever since.    Longtime supporter of the show, Mr. Doug Dorn, sponsored this episode, finally giving me the kick in the ass I needed to get around to playing GTA IV, and I'm so damned glad he did. This game is now easily my favourite Grand Theft Auto (until I play V, apparently), and it was great chatting with Doug and finding out why this game means so much to him.   And after that, my buddy (and the Roman to my Niko) Andre, comes by the show and we get into the seedy underbelly of Liberty City, and talk about what makes this game so damned good.   And before we go bowling, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about old gaming cartoon like Captain N and The Super Mario Bros. Super Show. Why the hell does Super Mario World end at 96 exits and not 100?? And what's the deal with the constant short stock on Nintendo's N64 Switch controller??   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too!

It's October, so you know we have to cliche it up and roll out at least one episode about a scary game. And for my money, scary games don't get much better than Dead Space. This bad boy is hella fun to play, and it's scary as fuck, too!   Resident Evil 4 was my first real experience with a "horror" game, and I loved it. When I saw Dead Space, I thought "that looks like a better Resident Evil 4". And I don't think it's a hot take to put these games in the same S Tier of survival horror. Two of the best to ever do it.    My buddy Patrick returns to the show this week, and we spent an hour talking about why the game mechanics, controls, sound, atmosphere, and practically everything else about Dead Space is almost perfect. If you haven't played it yet, hopefully we can convince you to grab your plasma cutter (and a change of pants) and give it a shot!   And before we enter zero gravity, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about the spring system I use here on RTG. Someone asks my gaming experience is different when I play a game for the podcast vs just playing it for fun. And do you ever feel guilty about playing video games??   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 more survival horror heavies: F.E.A.R. 2, Fatal Frame, and Condemned: Criminal Origins.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I know some of you want more PC love on the podcast. The problem is, I haven't played anything PC. I think we've literally covered every PC game I've played in my life on the show already. So if I play something new, bet your ass it's gonna get an episode of RTG. And our Patreons decided I should play Half Life last month, so here we are.   I didn't love playing with mouse & keyboard (in fact, I fucking hated it), but I sure liked this game. Even 20+ years later its release, I can see what a monumental, influential game this is. I really feel like it's one of those games every gamer should experience, and I'm glad I finally have. (The last 25% of the game sucks, though.)   My buddy Tyler is back this week, and we spent over an hour talking about Valve's game debut, and one of the most important first-person shooters ever made. Half Life is pretty dope, and it was worth going against my anti-PC heritage to experience.   And before we swing crowbars, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about cloud gaming, and what role it could play in gaming in the future. Someone asks me to break down the new PS Plus tiers. And what does a game have to do to get me to buy it on multiple platforms?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of the greatest retro PC shooters ever: Duke Nukem 3D, DOOM, and Wolfenstein 3D.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

Working my way through the Sega Genesis library has been one of the coolest things about hosting this podcast. There's so many games on the other side of the console war trenches that I've always wanted to get my hands on, and most of the titles I've gotten to haven't disappointed.    TMNT: Hyperstone Heist is the latest game I've crossed off my list, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I didn't disappoint me, but it didn't blow my socks off, either. I feel like it's too good of a game to simply call it a lesser Turtles in Time...but...it's kind of a lesser Turtles in Time...    I found this to be a tough game to review, because we've covered Turtles in Time (twice), and most of the best features of Hyperstone Heist are the same features from Turtles in Time. But I got my buddy Mark McCue on the phone, we to a 16-bit beat 'em up about one of the best franchises in the history of the universe, and we did our best not to shortchange Hyperstone Heist on this episode. Because it really is a pretty solid game.    And before we talk turtles, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about the prospects of more RPG episodes of the podcast in the future. What video game character do you want to punch in the teeth the most? And does anyone actually enjoy blowing in NES cartridges?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Genesis beat 'em ups: Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie, Spider-Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage, and X-Men 2: The Clone Wars.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

Every couple months, we dedicate an episode of the show to "revisiting" a game we covered back in the early days of the podcast, when we had even less of an idea of what we were doing than we do now. And this week, we're taking another look at one of my absolute favourite games of all-time, and for my money, the best Mega Man game ever created - Mega Man X.    I think this game is a stone's throw from being perfect. It looks great, plays well, and the soundtrack is one of the best in all of retro gaming. I suppose you could argue it's a littttttle easy (for a Mega Man game), and there's a particular jump that just chaps my ass, but other than that, I have a really hard criticizing X's debut title. It's just a damned good video game.   The one and only Bradley McCue gave me a call this week, and we went through what makes X so rad, and even got into a little strategy talk (which is a rare thing here on RTG, as I normally suck at the games we're talking about). I could talk about this game every week. I hope y'all enjoy it!   And before we talk X, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about the modern games that'll be considered "classics" someday. What's the optimal number of party members for an RPG? And what do you do to combat gamer burnout?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Mega Man games: Mega Man X: Command Mission, Mega Man Legends, and Mega Man: Battle Network.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I consider myself fairly well traveled when it comes to the NES. I've played MOST of the big titles in some capacity, and I know most of the origin stories when it comes to Nintendo's mainstream franchises. But one that's always eluded me was Metroid. So while I was on holidays in July, I decided to break out my Switch and see where Samus came from. And while I'm glad I've experienced her first game, I can confidently say that I never want to play it again, haha.    This game is innovative, creative, easy to look at, and pretty damned fun. But it's also hard. NES hard. And if you know NES hard, you know that I resisted the urge to throw my Switch in the ocean on a few occasions. I had to look up a map, and I'm not even ashamed of it.   My buddy Daniel is the biggest Metroid fan I know, but he missed this one back in the day, too. So we both just finished our first run through Metroid on the NES, and we got together to talk about the years it took off both of our lives. Holy fuck, why does it have to be so hard????   And before we talk Samus, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talked about how I pick my guests for the show. If I could go drinking with one gaming character, who would it be? And why the hell is RTG not on TikTok??   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 "NES Tough" games: Blaster Master, Fester's Quest, and Battletoads.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I just found this podcast, I love it! Hits me right in the feels, I’m a huge gamer so this is perfect for me. It helps me through my 10 hour work days. I’m on episode 64. I hope this never ends. Being a big RPG fan I hope there is an episode on Secret of Mana. That is the game that got me into RPG’s, I try to not look ahead bc I like to see if I can tell the game by the music. 5 stars dude, you are funny as fuck keep it up.

One of my favourite hobbies when I have free time is playing online slots. That's something I feel I'm genetically inclined to. Visit a casino website like https://jackwin.com/en-ca/games/slots/providers-is-Microgaming/ (Microgaming) to play slot games online. The winner is Jack Win. Play Playboy, Immortal Romance and Major Millions, my recommendation. These are a few of my favorite online slot machines.
