Take out Jason once and for all, ARGonauts! 8-Bit Steve is our guest this week to talk about speedrunning and the community around it. He also tells us about his upcoming strategy guide series called The Easy Way that teaches you how to beat hard games no matter your skill level starting with the infamous NES title Friday the 13th.

This week's news starts with word that Atari is opening its own line of hotels for gamers. That's followed by returning favorites coming to Samurai Shodown and a long lost Super Famicom game sees the light of day.

The Stage of History has us battling the purple-clad Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th. Robert then goes swashbuckling in The Pirates of Dark Water during Obscura. And don't forget to grab our game code giveaways for Blazing Beaks and OMG Zombies!

It's the year 2000, ARGonauts! And we're only going forward from there as Ash Paulsen (GameXplain), Evan Bourgault (Boston Bastard Brigade) and Andre Tipton (Real Otaku Gamer) join us to chat about our favorite games from 2000 to 2009. Which year wins out in the end?

2020 has finally come upon us which means the 2000s are now officially retro (according to us at least)! Halo: Combat Evolved, Grand Theft Auto III, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Minecraft, and more are discussed here in this super-sized ARGcast Mini. Happy New Year!
