We celebrate our 150th episode with Kinsey Burke of MetalJesusRocks playing a game of Bang/Marry/Kill with our favorite video game franchises.

Time to get down and dirty, ARGonauts! Friend of the show Kinsey Burke from MetalJesusRocks returns to help us celebrate our 150th episode. And what better way to celebrate than with a game of Bang/Marry/Kill? We look at a whole bunch of our favorite gaming franchises and characters in a whole new light. Hope you're ready!

There's no news or Random Select this week since we wanted to devote our episode more to Bang, Marry, Kill. We do have the Stage of History, though! There's the beginning tale of souls and swords with Soul Edge. Then our inner weenies are unleashed with Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Robert reminisces about the ultimate team-up with Battletoads & Double Dragon in Obscura. Our episode ends on a more heartfelt note reminiscing over our favorite memories from 150 episodes of ARGcast. Let us know your favorites!

Steven Spohn of AbleGamers comes on the show to school us on game accessibility, what it actually means, and how it can be better.

You have the power, ARGonauts! AbleGamers COO Steven Spohn joins us this week to chat about accessibility in gaming. We discuss what it means for a game to be accessible, Microsoft's Adaptive Controller, and how Nintendo used to be a leader in this back in the NES days.

This week's news has us wonder if wrestler John Cena will be in Mortal Kombat 11. That's followed by a Resident Evil 2 mod that would make DMX proud, and a stealth release of Commander Keen on Switch.

The Stage of History has us make a big leap in time from Video Olympics on Atari 2600 to the modern classic Flower. Robert then gets super nerdy in Obscura with Lester The Unlikely. Don't forget to nab our game giveaways, then stick around for some Random Select! Who could Robert be this time?
