The fur flies in this episode of ARGcast as we are joined by The Hashtagonist to discuss his recent claim to fame. We also get into our favorite GameCube games and memories, plus David speaks with cosplayer WolverSteve.

You may think it's easy being a cat on the Internet, but The Hashtagonist! David and Robert speak with this feisty feline posing as a human about his work with The Daily Crate, the Nine Lives Podcast, and his recent Twitter explosion with the famous Biden/Obama meme.

David also takes a moment to speak with Wolverine cosplayer (and friend of the show) WolverSteve. We get into his X-Men fandom, as well as favorite old school games starring the man in the yellow spandex. Don't miss out on this one, bub!

We close out the show celebrating the 15th anniversary of the GameCube reminiscing on our favorite games and memories. What were some of yours from Nintendo's "purple lunchbox"? Let us know!

The Stage of History this week welcomes some heartfelt favorites, including SNES classic The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Tails' big break in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and movin' and groovin' arcade staple Dance Dance Revolution. Don't forget our games to giveaway Blast Brawl 2: Bloody Boogaloo, and MechaZoo. Gobble them up before the turkeys pick them clean!

We get literary with writer David Craddock on his books, as well as our favorite games on the original Xbox! Plus David (the host that is) speaks with developer Alonso Martin on his upcoming Metroidvania title Heart Forth, Alicia.

As a published author, David Craddock has had a lot to say not only in video games, but also the world of fantasy writing! We get into his work, as well as what he's doing now as associate editor of Shacknews.

We also celebrate the 15th anniversary of the original Xbox by discussing our favorite (and not so favorite) titles from Microsoft's debut gaming console and memories. Groundbreaking first person shooters? Terrible fighting games? We got 'em both!

The Stage of History this week gets into some mega hits, such as the space rock shooting Asteroids, violent motorcycle racer Road Rash, and the Xbox "killer app" Halo: Combat Evolved. There are also giveaways for White Noise 2 and Potato Thriller. Not only that, Mr. Craddock has a special giveaway that you'll have to listen to get. So get while the gettin's good, ARGonauts!

Ape Law Games founder Justin Pappas reunites with his former Irrational Games brother Bill Gardner to get into what makes the creepy world of Albino Lullaby tick.

Just because Halloween has ended doesn't mean the spooks have to end! We dig into the twisted mind of Ape Law Games' own Justin Pappas to learn of his post-Irrational Games indie project Albino Lullaby. Bill Gardner also joins us to share stories from their time at Irrational Games.

Being a controversial political season, it seemed only appropriate to also get into the most controversial titles in gaming history! What made mothers gasp in the '70s? Which games shocked politicians in the '90s? Be sure to share some of your favorite memories of controversial games with us at argcast@retrozap.com!

The Stage of History this week also welcomes its fair share of retro gaming titles including the robot-smashing Berzerk, scimitar-swinging Aladdin, and genre-defining Half-Life! Beware of Half-Life 3 jokes, folks. We also have game giveaways for Ginger: Beyond the Crystal and Haunted: Halloween '85!

As a Chicago classic in her own right, Keisha Howard is doing big things in gaming from running her own businesses to making TEDx speeches! We chat about her accomplishments, and then Robert speaks with folks at Ubisoft about the upcoming Watch Dogs 2.

Keisha shares with us her contributions to the gaming industry, such as making Sugar Gamers an avenue for minorities, creating a brand building business out of Blazebreakers (alliteration FTW), and representing gamers everywhere in the show Robot Combat League.

After that, Robert stops by Ubisoft to chat Watch Dogs 2 with the likes of senior producer Dominic Guay and hacker journalist Violet Blue. You'll want to plug in for these!

The Stage of History includes some amazing titles, including '90s classics such as the car crushing Twisted Metal, blood sucking Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, and death dealing Grim Fandango! We also have game giveaways for the virtual board game Galaxy of Trian and a modern NES platformer Haunted Halloween '95. Jump right on it, ARGonauts!
