  • Episode 148 : Resident Evil Code Veronica (Dreamcast)

    14/10/2021 Duración: 01h46min

    For our first episode of #Retroween2021, we're revisiting a series we haven't covered since 2017 -- we're looking at the Dreamcast entry in the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Code Veronica!  This is one of the last games in the series to have the "Tank controls" that the original game did, and it was the first in the series on (what was at the time) a next generation console.  This one hasn't had a remake yet-- is it one that should? We also answer a TON of listener mail, so stick around to see if we answered yours! Want to get right to the game?  So did we-- just start listening!

  • Episode 147 : Metroid Zero Mission (Game Boy Advance)

    27/09/2021 Duración: 01h30min

    Metroid Dread is on it's way, but it's going to show up in October, and we'll be busy with our annual month of horror games.  However, we are very excited about Metroid Dread, and so we're taking a look at the 2004 remake of the original Metroid -- Metroid: Zero Mission for the Game Boy Advance. We also talk about the most recent Nintendo Direct and answer some listener mail about getting burned out, tastes changing over the years, and some Final Fantasy. Want to get right to Metroid: Zero Mission?  Jump to that 16 minute mark.

  • Episode 146 : Syphon Filter (Playstation)

    10/09/2021 Duración: 01h17min

    After talking way too much about Psychonauts 2, we dove into Sony's Syphon Filter, a 3d action game that sold well enough to have 5 sequels, and is included on the Playstation mini -- but is this worthy of being called a classic, or is this one better left in 1999? We also take some more listener mail all about cartridge systems in 2021, more flight sim music, and I'd bet a question somehow relating to food. Don't want to hear about Psychonauts 2? I don't know why you would, but head on over to the 10:30 mark!

  • Episode 145 : James Bond 007 (Game Boy)

    27/08/2021 Duración: 01h21min

    This time we're taking a Patron request to cover the 1998 Nintendo Game Boy game, James Bond 007! After Goldeneye was a smash on the N64, this game came out the next year for Nintendo's handheld -- but was it a first person shooter, a stock platformer, or something else entirely?  We were pleasantly surprised with what we got here. Also discussed, more Final Fantasy XIV, listener questions about our health habits, and even squeezed in some game talk in here someplace. Want to get right to the action? Live dangerously and go over to the 9:15 mark!

  • Episode 144 :Spider-Man and Venom Maximum Carnage (SNES)

    16/08/2021 Duración: 01h29min

    This time we're taking another Patron request, and this time it's Planemech asking us to cover the Super Nintendo comic book brawler Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage!  Based on the comic book event of the same name, does this game hold up now, or like many super hero related games from the era does it just fall flat?  Listen to find out. We also had a bunch more questions sent in from our listeners, and we answered them -- all your questions about arcade game preferences, bad memories that taint a gaming experience, what IS retro anyway, and more!

  • Episode 143 : Castlevania Aria of Sorrow (GBA)

    30/07/2021 Duración: 02h03min

    This episode we're taking a Patron request from "Logan" who has asked us to cover Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, the third game in this series on the Game Boy Advance.   We've shown our love for the 16-bit Castlevania's and Symphony of the Night in the past, but is this a stumble for the series like some of the earlier handheld offerings?  We'll tell you what we thought. We also haven't been a full trio for a while, so we've got over an hour of listener mail to tackle.  Let's see if we lost our minds (at least more than usual) Want to jump right to the game? We skipped talking about our disasterous real lives and so we pretty much jump right into things this week.

  • Episode 142 : Fantasy Zone (Master System)

    06/07/2021 Duración: 58min

    This week Jeremy P and Billy revisit the Sega Master System for one of the early titles, a port of the Sega arcade game Fantasy Zone!  Is this brightly colored cute-em up still worth checking out today? We played through it and share our opinions! Want to jump right to the game? Start at the 9:00 mark!

    21/06/2021 Duración: 01h17min

    We take a look at the first Batman game for the NES, (loosely) based on the 1989 movie! Love that Joker -- but did we love this game? Listen and see!

  • Episode 140 : Steel Empire (Genesis)

    09/06/2021 Duración: 01h24min

    We revisit the shoot-em-up genre with a patron-requested episode all about Steel Empires for the Sega Genesis!  Is this just another bullet-hell shmup for die-hards, or is this a shoot-em-up that has a little more to offer for everyone? We let you know our thoughts. Also discussed, Jeremy P gets into his most recent attempt at playing Metal Gear Solid 4, we talk about chicken sandwiches, difficulty settings in video games, and (of course), a Sax-o-beat.

  • Episode 139 : Crystalis (NES)

    20/05/2021 Duración: 01h27min

    As requested by "Joe" on our Patreon, we're talking about SNK's action RPG, Crystalis, for the NES! This game combines RPG elements with a very Zelda-like gameplay, but does it work? And how well does it play now? We share our thoughts. Also discussed, games within games, games that just don't work for us, and Jeremy P finally doesn't really talk about Monster Hunter Rise- at least not too much. Want to get right to 2097? Then jump out of cryostasis at the 9:00 mark! __________________________ If you would like additional bonus episodes of Retrovaniacs or to request a game we must cover, our Patreon is located here : https://www.patreon.com/user?u=21041333 If you enjoy this podcast, why not write a review wherever you download it from?

  • Episode 138: Seaman (Dreamcast)

    05/05/2021 Duración: 01h12min

    This time we're taking a look at the virtual pet experience, Seaman for the Sega Dreamcast.  One of the few games that used the Dreamcast microphone, you would raise Seaman from an egg, teach him some words, and then he'd ask you about your poor life decisions.  Seaman is definitely a unique game, and we're here to talk about what exactly you do in it.

  • Episode 137 :Four Atari 2600 Games!

    13/04/2021 Duración: 01h39min

    We say we cover games from the start of home consoles on, but we haven't really done anything pre-NES... until now!  We're taking a look at 4 games from the Atari VCS library to talk about why these games may or may not be worth trying-- and in some cases we finally figure out what they were trying to do for the first time since playing them as kids. We also take a bunch of listener questions about emotional video game memories, Kart racers we wish were made, the upcoming Vita/PS3 shop removal, and... Dragula.

  • Episode 136 : Rock n Roll Racing (SNES)

    24/03/2021 Duración: 01h08min

    Since it's been requested several times over the years, because we haven't done many racing games, and because it's featured in the recent Blizzard Arcade Collection-- we're strapping into our space age race cars and taking a look at the SNES version of Rock N' Roll Racing!  (Please note : No music from this game is featured in this episode due to copyright concerns... but we tried to be creative) We also answer some listener mail about our last episode, what consoles we wish we had so that we could properly do shows on their libraries, and... what cartridge we would eat?

  • Episode 135 : Jet Grind Radio / Jet Set Radio (Dreamcast)

    09/03/2021 Duración: 01h22min

    Grab your favorite pair of rollerblades and a bag of spray paint-- because we're talking about Jet Grind Radio (Jet Set Radio everywhere else but the North American Dreamcast release)! It's a game about gangs who fight via graffiti while skating around the city, and avoiding some aggressive law enforcement. There's not a whole lot out there like this- is that a bad sign? Also discussed: possible corporate mascot games, Showbiz Pizza, NES Arcade ports, and we still managed to get some fast food talk in here.

  • Episode 134 :Blood Omen Legacy of Kain (Playstation)

    28/02/2021 Duración: 01h06min

    As February nears an end, we have another Patron recommendation - Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain for the Playstation! The first game in a series that seems to have been put on the backburner, this game introduced us to the world of Nosgoth, and the origin of the vampire Kain.  How does this 2d action adventure game hold up today?  Listen for our thoughts. Also discussed, the new iteration of Ghosts 'N Goblins, Triangle Strategy (or whatever it's called) and a few items mentioned on the most recent Nintendo Direct.  And of course, more listener mail.

    February is full of picks sent to us by our Patrons -- all picks have come from The List which is exclusive to our Patreon page, and the one we're kicking off with was requested by "2600", and we are strapping on our favorite sandals and taking a look at Battle of Olympus for the NES!

  • Episode 132 : Lemmings (SNES)

    26/01/2021 Duración: 01h03min

    We don't cover computer games on Retrovaniacs, however we do cover computer ports.  So, we used the SNES port of Lemmings to discuss the series as a whole, and focus on why this game may or may not work on a console. Also discussed- the shortest what we've been playing in about 5 years, cartoons and toys we liked as kids, Metroidvania suggestions, and a question about Great Tiger?

    12/01/2021 Duración: 01h24min

    For our first show of 2021, we take a look at the first game in the Spyro series. This colorful Playstation platformer looks a lot like it's made for kids, but is there enough here to keep anyone's interest? We also kick of the new year answering some questions about our hopes and dreams for 2021, licensed games, and creating a game based on our own lives.

  • Episode 130 : Snatcher (Sega CD)

    23/12/2020 Duración: 01h26min

    For our last regular episode of 2020, we take a look at an early Hideo Kojima game that most of us in the US have no way to play - Snatcher, which was only released outside of Japan on the Sega CD format.  Kojima's post-Metal Gear game is not an action stealth game like his most famous series, but instead is a sci-fi story driven interactive storybook that would appeal to fans of Blade Runner.   And as a bonus, it occurs around Christmas! We also talk about our favorite and least favorite games of 2020, and take some listener questions on classic Retrovaniacs topics : Stardew Valley, fast food breakfasts, and games we may have forgotten. Thank you for all your support over 2020, and we will see you in 2021!

    08/12/2020 Duración: 01h35min

    This episode we take on an NES game that has a rabid fanbase, and none of us had played it before to see why.  Recommended by Patron "John B", Clash at Demonhead is what we played, and we'll tell you all about it. We also take on a batch of listener questions about our recent Mega Man 5 show, fighting games, newer retro-style games, and if there were any major series we hadn't tried.
