Let's get topical... well, sortof! The main topic has David and Robert discuss their plans for the ever looming E3 2016. What are their most anticipated games to play on the show floor? What kinds of bold predictions will our hosts make? Join our conversation to find out, and be sure to let us know what you're hoping to see also!
Retro gaming then turns political as we discovered some neat NES parodies that puts "The Donald" front and center. Knock Trump out in a reimagining of Punch-Out!!, or save him from his cage guarded by the devious and wily Bernie Sanders. Don't even get us started on Urban Champion. We couldn't make these up if we tried.
We then close things out on the possibility of a new Quake being made after now seeing Wolfenstein and Doom come back on modern consoles. Should it focus on multiplayer? What does a new Quake need to do to differentiate itself from Doom?
Of course, there's also retro gaming to celebrate! The Stage of History this week welcomes classics such as the iconic space shooter Gradius, the West's introduction to the RPG genre Dragon Warrior, and John Romero's triumphant blunder Daikatana. Who's the bitch now?
You also don't want to miss our game giveaways which include another code for Soda Drinker Pro and one for the simplified fighting game Divekick. Keep calm and game on, ARGonauts!

The retro gaming hits just keep on coming in this episode of Another Retro Gaming Podcast! For our main topic of the show, we welcome Tim Hartman of Retrotainment to chat about his old school style game that's a ghost-punching good time, Haunted: Halloween '85. With inspiration from key titles such as River City Ransom, Tim chats with us about how he went from trading retro video games to making them, as well as what to expect in his followup title Haunted: Halloween '86.
In the spirit of the genre, we continue with a casual conversation about our favorite beat 'em up titles of all time. We then close things out by discussing how Nintendo's recent plans to jump back into making movies will pan out, and also why Star Fox may make more sense to bring to the big screen than other more noteworthy Nintendo properties.
Of course we also have the Stage of History where this time we welcome the Atari classic Centipede and its flying gnome of doom, SNK's humorous and iconic run 'n gun shooter Metal Slug, and the debut of one of gaming's most memorable heroines in Perfect Dark. We also have game giveaways for Soda Drinker Pro and not one, but TWO Steam codes for the unique Wild West dueling title Western Press. BANG BANG!
It's time once again for Another Retro Gaming Podcast! This time, David and Robert are joined by Deep Silver's Will Powers who has had his hand in a number of previous and upcoming titles including Saints Row IV, Homefront: The Revolution, and Mighty No. 9. Get an exclusive look into the making of these games and what kind of thought process was put into the pack-in retro-inspired title Dead Island: Retro Revenge. That ain't Jack Black, folks!
The topics don't end there, however, as we also scratch our heads over the rumor that the Nintendo NX may possibly be steering towards a retro revival with the return of cartridges. Also, we celebrate Spider-Man's triumphany return to the big screen by giving retrospective on the wall-crawler's gaming history.
We also celebrate retro gaming - as we tend to do on the show - with classic titles such as the ghost-munching arcade hit Pac-Man, all-time great fighting game Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, and the runaway smash (literally) hit Crazy Taxi. There are also game giveaways to win for hardcore platformer Chicku and Capcom's spooky episodic foray Resident Evil Revelations 2.
In this very special episode of Another Retro Gaming Podcast, David and Robert are graced with the presence of not just one, but two guests! Bill Gardner of The Deep End Games (and formerly with BioShock studio Irrational Games) comes in to chat more about his Kickstarter funded title Perception which has you playing as a blind woman navigating her way through a haunted house. We are also joined by RetroZap boss man Joe Tavano who lets his geek flag fly in our look back at Star Wars games throughout years past. The episode closes out with an inquisitive discussion about the Sega franchise Shinobi getting the big screen treatment.
We also celebrate some awesome retro titles in the Stage of History, such as Atari classic Yars' Revenge, the granddaddy of the FPS genre Wolfenstein 3D, and game developer Cliff Bleszinski's shot to fame Jazz Jackrabbit. There are also games to win throughout this episode, so stay tuned for your chance to win those!
