Do you believe in magic? How about cheating in your favorite retro titles? We cover the Game Genie in this week's main topic and share some of our favorite memories and codes we would use back in the day. Be sure to let us know which games you used with the Game Genie!

Along with that, we have some really amazing interviews. Robert speaks with the producer of The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Jason Michael Paul, and David has a very candid chat with the new RETRO Magazine owner Eli Galindo.

This week's Stage of History welcomes a favorite title of our hosts - the punchy and slimy Battletoads! Then Robert introduces a first person shooter in Obscura that's really cookin' (literally) - the PS1 title PO'ed. We also have our usual game giveaways that you'll want to get your grubby hands on. Get to grabbin', ARGonauts!

Don't touch that dial, ARGonauts! We bring on board good friend and Electric Sistahood "NinjaSista" Rochelle Hinds to chat about a listener requested topic - Sega Channel! Join in the conversation about this early attempt at on-demand gaming using the power of the Internet.

Before we hop into our main topic, we skip through some major news items. We learn a tiny bit more about Atari's big comeback in the console space, look over Telltale's upcoming adventure titles, Mega Man making a potential splash on the big screen, and more!

This week's Stage of History celebrates the 25th anniversary of unique adventure title Ecco the Dolphin, and boy does Rochelle have a story about that! Then Robert shares his experience with Sega Channel exclusive Alien Soldier in Obscura. We also have our game giveaways you'll want to dive in and nab up, as well as another game of Random Select. Who could David be this week? It's downright diabolical!

Since breaking ground with his incredible Jay-Z / Chrono Trigger mashup, 2 Mello has been exploring fresh sounds that are worthy of your ears. We have samples from his upcoming Streets of Rage mashup you gotta hear, plus learn what went into making other projects such as Chrono Jigga and the 2064: Read Only Memories soundtrack.

Before we jam out, this week's news has us talking about the unlikely rebooting of RETRO Magazine. David and Robert have plenty to say about this one! There's also the reveal of Samurai Shodown V making its way to modern consoles, Summer Games Done Quick smashing records, and another music artist who found a way to make game themes played backwards sound good.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, R-Type gets inducted in this week's Stage of History! Did you know what the R in the title originally stood for? We got the facts, Jack! Plus Robert chats about the music of Super Adventure Island in Obscura. We have our usual game giveaways you'll want to get your hands on, and also another game of Random Select. Robert tries to throw some tricky curve balls this time, but see if you can guess before our contestants.

Drink your milk and eat your vitamins, ARGonauts! David and Robert are sharing some of the top games you can play to feel like a real American. Independence Day may be behind us now, but it's always a good time to salute to the stars and stripes (and play some rockin' games after). Which games make you feel like a true, blue patriot? Let us know!

Before that, we get into this week's news which starts off with Housemarque's Nex Machina getting the old school arcade treatment. We also learn of a potential leap to 3D platforming for Shovel Knight, Adi Shankar's plans for an Assassin's Creed anime, and the reveal of a long thought lost prototype of Rayman on SNES.

There's also the welcome addition of arcade plane shooter After Burner celebrating its 30th anniversary in the Stage of History. Robert then brings up Castlevania Chronicles in Obscura to prepare for the Netflix series. We also have our usual game giveaways you'll want to grab, plus a crackin' good time in Random Select! David may have made it too easy this time around, but see if you can guess before Robert.

Nintendo has delivered with the SNES Classic, so we're running down the lineup with our returning guest Kinsey Burke from MetalJesusRocks! We give our impressions of each title, including the never before (officially) released Star Fox 2. We also share several titles that could have easily been added.

We kick off the news this week with details on the SNES Classic reveal. There's also the great debate of best racing games according to Famitsu Magazine's readers, and the Turkey government's stance on certain video games supposedly spreading Islamophobia. Fair, or foul? Let us know!

This week's Stage of History welcomes quirky Japanese adventure title The Legend of the Mystical Ninja, and that other N64 launch title Pilotwings 64. Robert talks about underrated SNES racer Uniracers in Obscura, plus we have our usual game giveaways for you to get your hands on. Finally we have a quick game of Random Select, so try and guess who Robert is before we do!

The mini SNES Classic launches in September for $80
Star Fox 2 Programmer Is Surprised And Thrilled The Game Is Finally Coming Out
Famitsu Readers Choose Super Mario Kart as the Best Racing Game of All Time
