The show must go on, ARGonauts! Despite some major technical issues, we still break out a great show for you where we give our impressions of the E3 2018 conferences and games we saw during the convention. Plus Robert shares a bunch of interviews he got with new Intellivision president Tommy Tallarico, God of War voice actress Danielle Bisutti, and more.

The interviews don't stop there! Robert also took to Denver Comic Con where he spoke with The Monster Squad about the new documentary Wolfman's Got Nards. He also catches up with gaming host extraordinaire Jessica Chobot to close out.

After that, we talk more E3 games with friend of the show Randy Greenback of Friday the 13th. What is Randy most excited to play? Which title was a palette cleanse for him after working on one of the most violent games released recently? Who even won E3? Listen up and join in the discussion!

We're headed to E3, ARGonauts! David and Robert are joined by returning guest Will Powers to get nitty gritty into the games industry before the big week. Join us for a look into what we're expecting to be shown on the big stages, as well as the long shots we hope to see.

First we jump into some news starting off with a look back on Atari co-founder Ted Dabney who sadly passed away recently. Then there's a look at a new retro gaming show by wrestler AJ Styles, and new GameCube controllers that will be out in time for Smash Bros on Switch.

The Stage of History welcomes the only other title starring our favorite green dudes Battletoads in Battlemaniacs, and Sam Fisher's finest moment Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Robert then goes meta with a look back on Street Fighter The Movie The Game in Obscura. Don't forget to nab our game codes for Way of the Passive Fist and Shaq Fu, then stay a bit longer for another game of Random Select! Who could Robert be this time?

ARGcast goes to MomoCon! Robert has the pleasure to interview some big names in gaming including voice actors Troy Baker, Nolan North, and Richard Epcar, legendary game designer Warren Spector, and Shovel Knight programmer Ian Flood. It's a long one, but that just means more time to hear these amazing people.

Before we jump into MomoCon, we get into some news including the announcement of new Pokemon games Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee. That's followed by talk over the new Fallout related news, and Sega officially revealing Team Sonic Racing in light of the Walmart leaks.

After the MomoCon interviews, we get into more news on game composer Tommy Tallarico becoming president of Intellivision and spearheading a new console there. Meanwhile the Atari VCS officially hit Indiegogo to take preorders, so we give our take on what we expect with that. Could it be a success, or just another Ouya?

Stay in the shadows, ARGonauts! We're finally doing an episode all about stealth games with our special guest Dan Hindes. Not only is Dan an expert on the stealth genre, but he's even making his own game that is a unique take on it. We get into all that, and more!

Before we sneak off towards our main topic, we got plenty of hot news to talk about! We start off with the latest details revealed on the online plans for Nintendo Switch, and what this means for Virtual Console (RIP). There's also the Pokemon bombshell on Pikachu's third form that was cut, and Wal-Mart having a bombshell of their own with a leaked list of AAA titles that we could be seeing at E3.

The Stage of History crouch walks in with one of the original stealth games Castle Wolfenstein, and the introduction of Sam Fisher with Splinter Cell. Robert then takes the more direct approach with the super suit enabled Crysis in Obscura. Don't forget to nab our game code giveaways for Antihero and Pit People, then join us for a spin in Random Select! Who could David be this time?

The seasons change, but not our love for retro gaming! We are joined by game director Rupert Ochsner to talk about his soon to be released action platformer Fox n Forests. Ready your crossbow, kick around a partridge, and ready yourself for adventure, ARGonauts!

Join us as we discuss the inspirations for Fox n Forests including Rupert's favorite games Ghosts n Goblins and Actraiser II. We also get into the nitty gritty of game mechanics that includes a changing of the seasons which would make The Byrds proud, why the decision was made to go with a fox protagonist, and what Rupert's game industry experience has been like before tackling his dream project.

If you are interested to learn even more about Fox n Forests, be sure to check out the official website. Be sure to also follow @FOXnFORESTS on Twitter where you can potentially earn game codes and make origami out of the main character.

Welcome to the adventure, ARGonauts! We welcome content creator and Marvel hype man Chris Baker onto the show to talk about retro games with your favorite superheroes from the Marvel universe. We also have responses from listeners like YOU on the all time best games that did these characters justice, and get into which Marvel characters are long overdue for their own game. Chris's answer might surprise you!

We first fly into the news which includes some re-releases of Ikaruga and Stars Wars: Episode I Racer. Then we get into the latest information on the upcoming Atari VCS (please be good), Capcom's mystery titles to be shown at E3, and the crazy story on a brand new copy of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Game Gear being sold this year. WHOA!

The Stage of History is looking Marvel-ous with the inclusion of Spider-Man for Atari 2600, and one of the all time great beat 'em ups X-Men for arcade. Robert then busts out the last title to be released for the 32X, Spider-Man: Web of Fire, in Obscura. Don't forget to web swing in for our game giveaways of Antihero and The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, then stick around for another game of Random Select. Who could Robert be this time?

What does it mean for a video game to be "perfect"? Is perfection even a thing? We are joined by special guest John AKA Mister Megative from the SDGC podcast to explore what could be considered "perfect" video games according to our arbitrary rules. We also have a butt load of listener responses on this very topic!

Before kicking things off with our main topic, we run through the news which includes rumors of the Wave Race franchise making a splash on Nintendo Switch, and a fan project that mashes together the worlds of Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. We also discuss a blind speedrun of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out someone recently completed, and other equally impressive feats.

The Stage of History this week has us bring up some of the highly rated games in history with the controversial Grand Theft Auto III and the controversial for a different reason Metroid Prime. Robert then reminds us all of the cult favorite Alice: Madness Returns in Obscura. Don't forget to grab our game giveaways for Evil Glitch and Warhammer: Vermintide 2, then join us for another game of Random Select! Who could David be this time?

Our ARGcast news sections as of late has been leading up to this. Billy Mitchell has had his high scores taken down, and is banned from submitting more in the future. Where does that leave Billy and Twin Galaxies? David catches up with Twin Galaxies head of editorial Jesse Collins and the writer who broke the story Alex McCumbers to discuss.

Join us as we get into what went into reporting the story under the Twin Galaxies name, and the tricky balance that TG editorial had to play with the situation. There's also talk about Walter Day, Steve Wiebe, the mainstream media's reaction, and what is being done to ensure high score credibility is maintained. How will Billy Mitchell be remembered? Let us know!

Thank you to Jesse and Alex for joining me in this discussion! Be sure to check out their work on TwinGalaxies.com.

When looking back on console releases in history, few are bypassed more than the TurboGrafx-16 (and its little buddy the PC Engine). Our buddy Andre Tipton comes back on to share with us his expertise on Hudson Soft's firecracker of a run in the console race during the '80s and '90s.

Before Andre's lovefest on all things TurboGrafx and PC Engine, we dive into what ended being a busy news week in the world of retro gaming! The first two Shenmue games are finally getting a re-release, Sega could potentially bring back Saturn and Dreamcast titles, a new 2D Castlevania game gets announced (although not in the way we hoped), and SNK has potentially really cool hardware coming out soon. Finally, we give our 2 cents on the Billy Mitchell / Twin Galaxies situation so far. The drams are for reals!

This week's Stage of History features the best that the PC Engine and TurboGrafx-16 has to offer respectively with Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and Air Zonk. Then Robert kicks into action with the surprisingly rare Jackie Chan's Action Kung-Fu in Obscura. Don't forget to pick up our game giveaways for Evil Glitch and Poker Night at the Inventory, then stay with us for another tense game of Random Select. Does Robert sing his way to victory?

With the evolution of first person shooters over the years, it can be easy to forget where they largely came from. One thing for certain is that David Craddock, author of Rocket Jump and countless other video game related books, hasn't forgotten! Join us as we discuss the ins and outs of id Software during the time they released Quake, and changed the FPS landscape forever.

In this discussion, we get into Mr. Craddock's relationship with John Romero, what was happening behind the scenes at id Software, how the new Quake Champions is trying to make what's old new again, and more. Also be sure to check out his book Rocket Jump for the most in-depth information you could ever hope for on id Software and the Quake franchise. You could say it's enough to make you go on a reading spree!

Let's stomp on some koopas, ARGonauts! It's high time for our Mario episode, so we welcome friends of the show Andre Tipton and the "Muscle Mario" himself Nick Castro to discuss Nintendo's plucky plumber. We cover A LOT of Mario games here, including Japanese exclusives and cancelled titles.

Before making our way to the Mushroom Kingdom, we cover news on the latest batch of OG Xbox games coming to the Xbone, and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 getting announced. We also get hyped for a Street Fighter tabletop game that simply looks amazing, and look into the reason why we don't see Contra reissued these days.

The Stage of History looks into the non-jumping Mario game Wrecking Crew, and Luigi's first starring role in Mario is Missing. Robert then continues on the path of edutainment with Donkey Kong Jr. Math in Obscura. Also be sure to grab our game code giveaways, then join in for the rowdiest game of Random Select yet!

The past couple of episodes have been leading us up to this point! We welcome special guest Joe Tavano of RetroZap to discuss his favorite console - the Sega Master System! Join us for a look back on the hardware, peripherals, and our favorite (and not so favorite) titles. Our listeners even join in for the Sega lovefest.

Before we dive into Sega goodness, the news this week has us discussing a modern day Easter egg found in a newer Atari Jaguar cartridge, rumors of a brand new Donkey Kong game coming to Nintendo Switch, a Galaga tournament that went all out, and the NES Splatoon game we apparently don't deserve.

The Stage of History kicks off the Master System love with Fantasy Zone and Ninja Gaiden, then we get into the Sonic the Hedgehog title that you likely didn't play in Obscura. Don't forget to nab our latest game code giveaways, then join us for another (short) round of Random Select! Who could Robert be this time?

We're shipping up to Boston, ARGonauts! Join us along with special guests and friends of the show Andre Tipton, Bill Gardner, and Amanda Gardner as we chat about everything that will be shown at PAX East 2018. Bill and Amanda also tease a surprise they're going to show at their booth.

The news gets us started with word that Bitmap Books is making a Sega Master System visual compendium, plus a whole string of rumors including a new Wario Land for Switch, Ikaruga making a comeback on modern platforms, and Capcom bringing back Puzzle Fighter in a way we might not be hoping for.

The Stage of History this week has us celebrate a couple of great platfomers with Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 and Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap. Robert then takes us back to the beginning of a franchise with the first Far Cry in Obscura. We also have a couple of game codes to give away for MidBoss and PC Gaming Simulator, and then another round of Random Select. Guess who David is before he skates away!

Where else do you go after creating music for over 300 video games? Take your show on the road, of course! Robert catches up with acclaimed video game composer and advocate Tommy Tallarico about his career, running Video Games Live, and what he's promoting now on Kickstarter.

After the interview, stick around for a bit as David and Robert share their favorite game soundtracks done by Tommy Tallarico. There are quite a few notable ones like Earthworm Jim and Aladdin, as well as some real surprising choices! Can you guess what was the only NES game he created music for? And who knew there was a Skeleton Warriors video game?

Also be sure to back and/or share Tommy's Kickstarter campaign if you wish to support live performances of video game music. Let's show everyone out there that game soundtracks are just as legitimate as any other mainstream music!

Gotta go fast, ARGonauts! We welcome our friend Lizzy Silvas on the show to share her story on how she became a diehard fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, and how the blue guy helped Lizzy get through her greatest challenges in life.

The news this week starts off appropriately enough with a tech demo revealed for a Sonic Maker fan game. There's also the official reveal of the Ataribox name switch to Atari VCS, and Nintendo showing off their Nindie lineup which includes a couple of exciting ninja related titles that will please retro fans.

The Stage of History brings back memories both bad (Sonic 3D Blast) and good (Sonic Adventure). Plus Robert brawls out with Sonic the Fighters in Obscura. Don't forget to grab your game giveaways for Tokyo 42 and Demolish & Build 2018, and then join us for another round of Random Select!

Has it really been 18 years since the launch of the PlayStation 2? We look back on cherished memories with the games we loved on Sony's beloved console. Does the PS2 stand the test of time? Let us know your thoughts!

The news are flowing this week starting with the debut of Atari's new console at GDC. We then cover some key retro releases including Sega Genesis Collection, Bad Dudes vs. Dragon Ninja, Moon Patrol, and more! Then there's the release of a smartphone case that doubles as a portable retro gaming device, and a hacker on YouTube shows how he got a Sony Watchman to work with a Nintendo Switch.

The Stage of History this week swings for the fences with Nintendo's Tennis, then jumps back to the future with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Robert brings the mood down with the PS2 deep cut Darkwatch in Obscura. We also have our usual game giveaways, as well as the big 100 episode giveaway for the SNES Classic!

Instead of Random Select this week, Robert springs on some interviews during the Far Cry 5 event he attended, so don't miss out on those either.

There's no way David and Robert alone could name the greatest retro game ever, so we invite with us returning guests Andre Tipton and Tony Polanco along with ARGcast superfan (and the most buff Mario you will ever meet) Nick Castro!

Join us as we go through several tournaments that break down the greatest games in their respective genres. The winners of each genre then randomly get tossed into championship brackets until only one survives. You don't know true pressure until you hear this! The agony even brings us to the point of tears eventually.

Don't forget to nab our game codes, especially since we're giving away twice as many as we usually do! Don't miss your chance to own Tiny Metal, Crossing Souls, Human: Fall Flat, and H1Z1. There's also the big SNES Classic giveaway, so be sure to check out both our Twitter and Facebook for details on that.

We want to thank everyone who has been there for us as guests and/or listeners. We are truly grateful to be part of your lives and listening pleasure, and will be looking forward to providing more retro gaming love in the next 100 episodes.

The women have taken over! Join us along with guests Mandy Paez, Amanda Farough, and Liana Ruppert for a very special episode where they share their personal stories working in the gaming industry. Some of these may shock you! We also discuss empowering female characters throughout video game history.

This is a jam-packed episode, and not in small part to the news this week! We cover the Chrono Trigger Steam release that "steamed" and "triggered" many fans, the announcement of old school style FPS Ion Maiden, the reveal of a long-lost Donkey Kong game, the new retro inspired title Fox n Forests hitting Kickstarter, and the discovery that Alex Kidd in Miracle World was almost a Dragon Ball game!

The Stage of History this week includes the female-led classics Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, and Beyond Good & Evil. Robert then gets his groove on with Space Channel 5 in Obscura. Don't forget to grab our code giveaways for The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, and My Lovely Daughter. Finally, we close out this lengthy episode with another round of Random Select. Can you guess who David is in time for lunch?

For us, it was Tuesday! Book author Luke Owen joins us for a special ARGcast Mini episode to chat about his newly released publication Lights, Camera, Game Over!: How Video Game Movies Get Made. The book is great, but in all honesty it gives us a great excuse to geek out over our favorite big screen films based on video games and gaming culture.

Learn about some awesome behind-the-scenes stories from films such as Street Fighter, Resident Evil, and that Halo movie which we almost got. Hear about Jean-Claude Van Damme on angel dust, other actresses besides Angelina Jolie considered to play Lara Croft, and the kind of philosophy being implemented to make a Tetris movie (oh yes, that's really happening!).

Be sure to check out Luke's book using the link below. Everything we discussed and more can be found there. Also check out Robert's text interview with Luke on comicbook.com/gaming.

When you have run a podcast for 13 years like Danny Pena has and you're still making history, then you know you've made it. We welcome the brainchild and host of Gamertag Radio to discuss his beginnings when podcasting was barely a blip on the radar, plus the documentary that chronicles his struggles and triumphs.

Before celebrating all things Gamertag Radio, we hop into the news starting off with the release of Burnout Paradise and Vanquish to more contemporary consoles. We then get topical regarding the gun reform movement and how the discussion on violent video games has been dredged up from decades past. Then join us for a discussion on how online only games should be preserved.

The Stage of History this week welcomes the sword-spinning Kid Niki: Radical Ninja, and the street-brawling Final Fight. Robert then takes off with Sparkster in Obscura. Don't forget to grab our giveaway codes for Super Rude Bear Resurrection and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, and then join us for another round of Random Select. This time Robert is showing no mercy!

If there's one game franchise that truly inspires with its music, it's Jet Set Radio. David welcomes back music artist 2 Mello to discuss the music from Sega's popular series, and how it prompted him to make his own original album in the same vein.

This conversation also doubles as a musical journey of the Jet Set Radio franchise and Mello's own album Memories of Tokyo-To: An Ode to Jet Set Radio. Join us as we admire the work of composer Hideki Naganuma, and what Mello's experience with the man has been like so far.

Also be sure to check out 2 Mello on ARGcast #68 where he talked about his Streets of Rage mashup album, and listen to his other music including the soundtrack to Read Only Memories and the smash hit mashup Chrono Jigga.

We talk about romance... and everything in retro gaming! Join us along with special guests Nick Shively of MMOGames and his wife (and everything) Lori Dierinzo as we dive into our favorite love stories and couples in gaming history. You'll pick up on the inside joke (and everything) soon enough!

We first hit the news where we have a followup from Billy Mitchell on the Donkey Kong high score scandal that is rocking the retro gaming landscape currently. Then there are some cool new retro related products that have hit the crowdfunding circuit including the micro-sized PocketSprite, the long (not-so-)awaited N64 port of 40 Winks, and brand new Genesis platformer Tanglewood.

In this week's Stage of History, we cover the gamut of love stories from the romantic love triangle in Final Fantasy VIII to the hard-boiled tragedy that is Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. Robert then welcomes the most obscure title to hit Obscura - the PS2 pucker-upper Chulip! Be sure to also grab our game code giveaways, and stay awhile longer for another game of Random Select. This one truly takes our contestants to the brink!
