Ever wished it was easier to hook up your old consoles to newer TVs? Well our good buddies Justin Chou and Justin Scerbo of EON have an easy solution for you! We welcome them on ARGcast to discuss their awesome product the GCHD, and how it makes GameCube gaming better than ever. Plus we get into our favorite titles to be released on the platform. Listen up, bro!

The news this week has us discussing the short-lived wonder that was Sega World, Nintendo potentially making moves for an N64 Classic console, new Yakuza remasters being announced, and Best Buy discontinuing their Gamers Club program.

During Stage of History we bring up some GameCube heavy hitters with the fan favorite Super Smash Bros Melee, and the birth of Toon Link in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. We also "Switch" things up a bit with retro shooter Ikaruga in Obscura. Don't forget to nab our game code giveaways for Tokyo 42 and Overgrowth, and then stick around for another round of Random Select! Who could David be this time?

Our show is relatively obscure as is, but we get even moreso with our special guest (now her third appearance!) Kelsey Lewin. Join us this episode for our main topic that is all about obscure consoles and peripherals in gaming history, some of which Kelsey herself has personal experience with.

Before getting too weird, we dive right into the news which includes details on new Star Fox and Pokemon games for Nintendo Switch. We also get word on new shipments of NES and SNES Classic coming in this summer, discuss the official reveal of Rage 2, and welcome Nolan North and Troy Baker in the retro gaming show family!

The Stage of History this week adds a couple of oddball titles with the basketball themed platformer Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City, and Sega hodgepodge Fighters Megamix. Robert then brings up the unique LaserScope enhanced title Laser Invasion in Obscura. Don't forget to grab our game code giveaways for Sundered and Quake Champions, then join us for another game of Random Select! Who (or what) could Robert be this time?

Stay in the shadows, ARGonauts! We're finally doing an episode all about stealth games with our special guest Dan Hindes. Not only is Dan an expert on the stealth genre, but he's even making his own game that is a unique take on it. We get into all that, and more!

Before we sneak off towards our main topic, we got plenty of hot news to talk about! We start off with the latest details revealed on the online plans for Nintendo Switch, and what this means for Virtual Console (RIP). There's also the Pokemon bombshell on Pikachu's third form that was cut, and Wal-Mart having a bombshell of their own with a leaked list of AAA titles that we could be seeing at E3.

The Stage of History crouch walks in with one of the original stealth games Castle Wolfenstein, and the introduction of Sam Fisher with Splinter Cell. Robert then takes the more direct approach with the super suit enabled Crysis in Obscura. Don't forget to nab our game code giveaways for Antihero and Pit People, then join us for a spin in Random Select! Who could David be this time?

The seasons change, but not our love for retro gaming! We are joined by game director Rupert Ochsner to talk about his soon to be released action platformer Fox n Forests. Ready your crossbow, kick around a partridge, and ready yourself for adventure, ARGonauts!

Join us as we discuss the inspirations for Fox n Forests including Rupert's favorite games Ghosts n Goblins and Actraiser II. We also get into the nitty gritty of game mechanics that includes a changing of the seasons which would make The Byrds proud, why the decision was made to go with a fox protagonist, and what Rupert's game industry experience has been like before tackling his dream project.

If you are interested to learn even more about Fox n Forests, be sure to check out the official website. Be sure to also follow @FOXnFORESTS on Twitter where you can potentially earn game codes and make origami out of the main character.

Welcome to the adventure, ARGonauts! We welcome content creator and Marvel hype man Chris Baker onto the show to talk about retro games with your favorite superheroes from the Marvel universe. We also have responses from listeners like YOU on the all time best games that did these characters justice, and get into which Marvel characters are long overdue for their own game. Chris's answer might surprise you!

We first fly into the news which includes some re-releases of Ikaruga and Stars Wars: Episode I Racer. Then we get into the latest information on the upcoming Atari VCS (please be good), Capcom's mystery titles to be shown at E3, and the crazy story on a brand new copy of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Game Gear being sold this year. WHOA!

The Stage of History is looking Marvel-ous with the inclusion of Spider-Man for Atari 2600, and one of the all time great beat 'em ups X-Men for arcade. Robert then busts out the last title to be released for the 32X, Spider-Man: Web of Fire, in Obscura. Don't forget to web swing in for our game giveaways of Antihero and The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, then stick around for another game of Random Select. Who could Robert be this time?
