Get your pocket full of quarters, ARGonauts! We got "Pac-Man Fever" talking about the 40-year history of Namco's yellow muncher with world-class musician Jerry Buckner, Art of Atari author Tim Lapetino, and fellow games writer Arjan Terpstra. Join us for conversations about everything Pac-Man including how it captured its audience, creator Toru Iwatani, and even a Dick Clark story!

This week's news covers the return of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, Arcade1Up making big profits during the COVID-19 pandemic, and Mike Tyson fighting for another Punch-Out!! game. The Stage of History welcomes the unconventional platformer Pac-Land. And don't forget to grab our game code giveaways with two chances to claim the Nintendo Switch title Dig Dog.

Join David with game designer Shawn Alexander Allen to chat about his recently released turn-based beat 'em up RPG Treachery in Beatdown City! The conversation also turns to the beat 'em up genre, how New York is depicted in games like Double Dragon, stories of racial tension, and how those stories influenced the writing in his game.

You can pick up Shawn's game now on Nintendo Switch, Steam, and itch.io.

Let your fists do the talking, ARGonauts! David celebrates the beat 'em up genre with The Throwdown Show's Tony Polanco and Tetris 99 wizard Big Cheese. That includes the heavy hitters like Final Fight and Double Dragon to more obscure titles such as... Ninja Baseball Bat Man? You heard that right!

This week's news has us chatting about EVO 2020 getting flipped upside down because of the pandemic. That's followed by Robocop (and more!) coming to Mortal Kombat 11, Billy Mitchell fighting back for his Donkey Kong world record, and the Super Mario 64 PC port we deserve. The Stage of History has "turtle power" with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. Don't forget to grab our game code giveaway for Bookbound Brigade, then stay till the end for another round of Random Select! Who could David be this week?

Feel the romance in the air, ARGonauts! Game designer Aenne Schumann joins David and Candice this week to chat about her retro gaming-inspired Switch title Arcade Spirits, as well as dating video game characters. It gets as intimate and crazy as you can imagine.

The news this week covers Ziggurat Interactive buying up more than a handful of 3DO titles, and Square-Enix putting retro Final Fantasy VII figures on sale. The Stage of History has us country living in the original Harvest Moon for SNES. Don't forget to grab our game code giveaway for magical girl shooter StarCrossed, then stick around (albeit briefly) for the shortest Random Select ever!
