In this very special episode of Another Retro Gaming Podcast, David and Robert are graced with the presence of not just one, but two guests! Bill Gardner of The Deep End Games (and formerly with BioShock studio Irrational Games) comes in to chat more about his Kickstarter funded title Perception which has you playing as a blind woman navigating her way through a haunted house. We are also joined by RetroZap boss man Joe Tavano who lets his geek flag fly in our look back at Star Wars games throughout years past. The episode closes out with an inquisitive discussion about the Sega franchise Shinobi getting the big screen treatment.
We also celebrate some awesome retro titles in the Stage of History, such as Atari classic Yars' Revenge, the granddaddy of the FPS genre Wolfenstein 3D, and game developer Cliff Bleszinski's shot to fame Jazz Jackrabbit. There are also games to win throughout this episode, so stay tuned for your chance to win those!
After recuperating from PAX East, David and Robert return to your regularly scheduled ARGcast... but not without a special guest! We welcome film director Rob McCallum who has previously created the video game documentary Nintendo Quest, and is currently working on other subject manners in the documentary genre such as He-Man and heavy metal music. Now he is looking to fund his next gaming documentary on video game box art, aptly named Box Art: A Gaming Documentary. Join us as we chat all about this next venture, as well as dive deep into video game movies past, present, and future. We then wrap things up with a discussion on Doom creators John Romero and Adrian Carmack looking to make a whole new first person shooter the only way they know how.
We also welcome some awesome retro titles to the Stage of History, such as the unapologetically gory Splatterhouse, the debut of a certain pink puffball in Kirby's Dream Land, and point-and-click classic Full Throttle. There's more gaming goodness, however, with some game giveaways. Keep listening for a chance to win those!

Some more retro gaming related titles get mentioned as well, including Cryptark, Thimbleweed Park, and the legitimate NES game Haunted: Halloween '85. Jump in for our charming selves and stay for the amazing interviews!
