Watch your back, there's a killer on the loose! That or it's just some nerdy guys chatting about retro gaming, one being Friday the 13th: The Game producer Randy Greenback. He goes in-depth about this highly anticipated title's recently announced single player mode, and more!

Before diving into Friday the 13th, David has a couple of awesome conversations to share! Twinfinite.net founder Yamilia (AKA Yami AKA Niero Jr.) chats about her website's 5 year anniversary and the journey to get here so far. Also, in light of the recent voice actors strike, Dave Fennoy and Erik Braa share their insights and answer questions. #PerformanceMatters

We also celebrate the 16th anniversary of the PlayStation 2 talking about our favorite titles from the console's robust library. What are some of your favorite games? Let us know!

The Stage of History this week has some real hard-hitting classics. This includes the multiplayer dungeon crawler Gauntlet, "combo-tastic" fighter Killer Instinct, and the first entry of a franchise that took the gaming world by storm Grand Theft Auto. We also have game giveaways from not only David and Robert, but also Randy for Saturday Morning RPG! Grab 'em while they're hot, ARGonauts!

Join us and SWDTech Games producer Tim Robinson as we give our impressions and thoughts on the Nintendo Switch, Red Dead Redemption 2, the return of Destroy All Humans!, a fan-made arcade machine for The Legend of Zelda, and his current project Pixel Noir.

Our main topic dives deep into Tim's Kickstarter-funded callback to classic RPGs Pixel Noir. What are some of its main influences? How much of an influence are games like Chrono Trigger and Earthbound to it? Is there anything to learn from the recently released I am Setsuna? Let us know your thoughts!

In celebration of the 600th episode of The Simpsons, we also get into the history of video games based on the popular show! There were a lot of clunkers out there, but which one was our clear favorite? Chime in with your favorite also!

The Stage of History this week also gets into some great classics such as a double header of "Mario madness" with Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, GTA precursor Body Harvest, and more retro gaming! Plus we have some game giveaways you gotta "hop on" with Gravity Island and Pirate Pop Plus. ARG, indeed!
