Tony Polanco of The Koalition joins us as Robert hits the road with his impressions from the XPO Tulsa Games Festival! Listen in for his interviews with music artist Brentalfloss, Nintendo Play Station presenter Terry Diebold, and XPO founder Richard Mitchell. 

After Robert shares with us his impressions and karaoke stories from Tulsa, we pay tribute to the late great Arnold Palmer the way we know how - retro gaming! Join us as we share our memories of the legendary golfer through his own Genesis title Arnold Palmer Tournament Golf, as well as our own personal favorite golf games of all time. From Bandai Golf to Outlaw Golf, we cover it all!

This week's Stage of History includes some important titles from years past, such as space shooter Wing Commander, hellish shooter sequel Doom II, and the games that made "catching 'em all" cool Pokemon Red and Blue. We also have game giveaways that you can win for Japanese dancing game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X, and highway jumping thriller Clustertruck. Grab them while you can!

Take note, Mega Man and Game Boy fans! We welcome TRU FUN Entertainment's Chris Bryant to chat about his Mega Man style retro shooter Super Rad Raygun, Hideo Kojima throwing shade, and.... Harambe?

If you miss the look of Mega Man style platformers with Game Boy graphics, you are in for a treat! Chris Bryant joins us to chat about his game Super Rad Raygun. Learn why this is more than "just another Mega Man clone", especially on how the idea came for an energy mechanic!

Our other topic covers our thoughts on Hideo Kojima speaking out on Metal Gear Survive. Does the original creator make a fair point, or is the classic case of the kettle calling the coffee black (or however that saying goes)?

The Stage of History this week covers the monster mash classic Castlevania, Mac's killer app Myst, the precursor to story-driven action titles System Shock, and more! We also have game giveaways that you do not want to miss out on.

In this super-sized episode, we are joined by friend of the show and game programmer extraodinaire Trevor Stricker to discuss the console that started his career - the Sega Dreamcast! Robert also shares some words at Call of Duty XP.

It's the 17th anniversary of the Sega Dreamcast, so let's celebrate! Disco Pixel founder and former Dreamcast game programmer Trevor Stricker reminisces about the console that started his career with David and Robert. What were some of our favorite games and memories? How cool was SegaNet back in the day? Be sure to share with us your favorites also!

We take a break in the middle of the show as Robert shares some interviews and discussions with the fine folks at Activision during Call of Duty XP. If you're a big fan of the popular shooter franchise, you'll want to listen in to this! Going back to Dreamcast for our final topic, we discuss the trouble Sega is having remastering the first two Shenmue games. Are they valid reasons, or could this be a quick fix? Does it really matter if Coca-Cola machines are in the game?

The Stage of History this week includes some real legendary titles including the industry-saving NES hit Super Mario Bros, the bloody fighting game sequel Mortal Kombat II, and the very inspiration for this show segment Soulcalibur! There are also game giveaways as well as the announcement of winners for the Worms WMD physical copies.

Andre Tipton of Real Otaku Gamer chats with the boys about the drama unfolding around No Man's Sky, Nintendo games you may have never heard of, and the painstaking way Sega designed their games back in their heyday!

Does No Man's Sky developer Hello Games owe gamers an apology? Are gamers today simply too entitled to be asking for refunds? These are the questions we answer and more over this latest bit of industry shenanigans.

We bring the primary focus back to what we know best (retro gaming!) by getting into some one hit wonders by the Big N. Do these Nintendo deep cuts deserve followups? Which ones could have been successful given the proper marketing?

GIVEAWAY: We have TWO physical copies of Worms WMD for you lucky ARGonauts out there! Just let us know your favorite one hit wonder along with your console of choice (PS4 or Xbox One) on Twitter or Facebook for a chance to win. Winners will be announced on September 9th.

The show wraps up with a quick discussion over how Sega used their own custom made machines to create some of their most beloved classics. If you are a fan of history and how games were made back in the '80s and '90s, you won't want to miss this!

The Stage of History this week includes the near Tarzan knockoff Jungle Hunt, the RTS that put the genre on the map Command & Conquer, and "a Hideo Kojima game" Metal Gear Solid. Along with our big giveaway mentioned earlier, we also have game codes sprinkled throughout the show, so be sure to pick those up!
