Retro Fandango Eps. 66 - Shucky Darn: A Fandango Christmas (Dec 15, 2017)

December 15th, 2017

Ho, Ho, Ho!  Christmas cheer and all that crap.  It's Fandango, it's Christmastime, and we've got Twitch the @RetroGamerRanting back for his annual appearance - at least one of us does, cause the other couldn't bother showing up.  Get ready for tangents aplenty as we reminisce about Charlie Brown, Batman, Indie gaming and past ambitions before finally getting into some Christmas-themed game talk, lootbox controversy and there's some Disney/Marvel/Star Wars stuff in there too.  Put in on autopay, and fidget your spinners; Fandango has wrapped for 2017.

Retro Filmdango Eps. 4 - Moonstruck, Con Air & R– R— W— (Nov. 29, 2017)

November 29th, 2017

The laughable premise has become awkward reality.  On this episode of Retro Filmdango hosts Kevin and Richard dive headfirst into a Nic Cage threeway.  Romance, one-handed pushups and bad TV lighting await as we discuss Moonstruck (1989), Con Air (1997) and... an early nineties direct-to-video film?!  So, put the bunny back in the box and get in my bed!  It's time for NicVember!




Retro Fandango Eps. 65 - Very Controversial (Nov. 8, 2017)

November 8th, 2017

Get hyped, people.  @StevenEidher is in the co-pilot seat for this nerdtastic episode of Retro Fandango.  Left unsupervised, Richard and Steven blabber on about toys, model kits, Star Trek, hobos, Gremlins 2, getting old, energy drinks and Canadian geography.  For nearly three hours!  And somehow it's all...very controversial.  Do your best to get through it because by the last third we're all over the place.  You've been warned.  Listen at your own risk (but don't bother commenting). 

Very controversial.

Retro Filmdango Eps. 3 - Gremlins 2, Shaun of the Dead & S——– C— (Oct. 25, 2017)

October 25th, 2017

Oh, the horror!  It's time for another Retro Filmdango.  This month, in the spirit of Halloween, we're tackling three scary movies.  Well, two of them are horror/comedies; Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990) and Shaun of the Dead (2004), but the third, secret film is a nightmare inducing mind-job recommended by our resident horror expert, Matt a.k.a. Cygnus Destroyer, a.k.a. The LJN Defender.  Geez, what did you expect from this guy? 


Seriously, folks.  You'll want to check out his recommendation before listening.  You won't soon forget it.

Retro Fandango Eps. 63 - Tasty Mars Meat (Sept. 7, 2017)

September 6th, 2017

September already?  Where does the time go?  I'll tell you where, into a two and a half hour conversation with Frantic, aka. Frantic Society, aka. Frantic 'Fro...or Josh.  As a first time guest on the Fandango, Josh is put through the wringer over his two YouTube channels, his solo podcast and his completely orignial, not at all common or cliche, favorite game of all time.  The conversatoin then jumps all over the place as we hear Kevin's recap of the most recent Barrie Game Exchange, Vox shares some recipes on the Fandango baking corner, Josh 'Defends' Marvel's "required viewing" system and there's still room for Alice Cooper, Rick & Morty, point and click adventures, ANOTHER rant spills over from a prevoius episode, AGAIN, and, yes, the title will make sense.  This episode is so good you'll poop your pants!
