Hey guys, Andrew here. I just want to tell you all that I have literally no idea what’s going on with the title of this podcast. I chose Galactus as the background image because he’s the closest non-offensive thing I could find that’s related to the title.
We’ve done it. We have successfully tunnelled a high five (theoretically) through the Internet. That’s the good news. The bad news is that both Erics are going to be a little less handy around the site.
Because their hands were destroyed.
In the tunnelling.
Do your eyes get bored when your ears have to do all the work? Do you like podcasts, but wish there was something to look at? Fear not! Our scientists at 1 More Castle Labs™ have created a new thing we like to call “Podcast-o-vision”: It’s a podcast, but on YouTube! Hit the jump for the video and classic versions of the podcast.
We’ve got a great show that runs a bit on the long side, but we guarantee every minute of it is packed with retro gaming awesomeness. The trio ask if a video game had ever made them cry, and things get vicious in the Retro Showdown. Be sure to vote and tell us what you think of the episode!
Jason forgot to bring a REAL GAME this week again, and instead brought another mod to contend against the honest and true games that the Erics brought. The trio also discuss whether a perfect video game could exist, and in an unforeseeable twist of fate, they come to no clear consensus. Tell us what you think in the comments!
Is it a game? Is it a mod? Is it a taco? The 1 More Podcastle trio cut up this question for the ages into bite size, sushi-style chunks of wisdom for your auditory consumption. We don’t guarantee that the question actually gets answered, but to distract you from that there is a good bit of discussion earlier about how important music is in retro gaming. Have an opinion on retro game music or what constitutes a “game”? Let us know in the comments!
