Retro Fandango Eps. 55 - Flockdango (Apr. 18, 2017)

April 18th, 2017

We had the most fun you could possibly have while Fandangling it up with Myles AND Kathyrn from the YouTube channel Flock of Nerds and the hit podcast Flock Talk!  Both were fantastic guests who opened up about their greasy “Magic the Gathering” past.  Ok, well maybe it wasn’t greasy... but it could have been!  We had some more CCHangout clips the reveal some of NJRetro’s hidden talents and we listen in on a “cheeky” Let’s Play from Lamour Lapin. (PewDiePie has nothing on Rose!) Richard RE-watches Joe Piscopo movies instead of giving Adam Sandler’s cinema masterpiece The Wedding Singer a try, reveals why he has been so busy lately, and barely stays awake for the whole show. Too bad we didn’t get any Sauce-ish snores out of him.  My viewing of Rogue One leads to a discussion about blockbuster movie making today, and listener questions has Kathyrn and I geeking out about some classic Commodore 64 audio! No matter how many times we were told to pull down our pants during this episode, we kept them on... But just barely!

Retro Fandango Eps. 54 - That Wonderful Cokehead (Mar. 27, 2017)

March 28th, 2017

Vox and Mars take on Eps 54 completely naked! That's right!  With no guest or soundboard we only have our junk to show you! Yep. Old Laserdiscs about cokeheads, DVD sets of shows from a bigone era, and a Mega Drive saved from the trash. We also cover Musty Hobbit’s Compilation of the Cartridge Club’s Top 25 Sega Games, the Barrie Game Exchange, read listener forum comments, and answer your questions. And, best of all, there maybe a bet brewin' between Richard and Curtiss that will make everyone who hasn't forgot about the #1Console Challenge forget about the #1Console Challenge.  Put on your rubber boots kids, because this is the most raw of Retro Fandango ever! #MHCCCT25SG

March 7th, 2017

Joe Goes Retro was a guest we have been wanting to get on The Fandango for a long time and now we can rest easy becasue it has finally happened! Big thanks to Joe for hanging with us to talk, among other things Beat 'em Ups.  Or brawlers.  I'm okay with the term brawlers.  We also talk to Joe about his channel and how much it has grown over the past few years, Breath of the Wild, read some of your forum comments, examine Captain Planet's racist intro, Richard updates us on his Laser Disc watching, and I have become a scumbag reseller.  All this and more on this episode of Retro Fandango!

Retro Fandango Eps. 52 - A DeVito DeVito (Feb. 14, 2017)

February 14th, 2017

Welp.  As I type this at work I am madly missing the notes left at home about everything we talked about in this one.  So off the top of my head, Darren was great, it was fantastic to have Vox back in the bubble, and we mostly talked about movies.  CC100 became a bigger discussion than planed, and we had a good time with some audio clips from various CC Hangouts.  Good Times.

December 9th, 2016

This episode we welcome Musty Hobbit to the Fandango.  After we hose off the STC Pod stank from him we get down to buisness and talk some Final Fantasy 8, 15, and 9 might have earned a mention or two.  Also, The MightyQDawg pays his #1Console debt, Beat My Score is still a work in progress, listener comments spawn more conversation about the Switch, and Vox can't get Blood Dragon in Japan.  News covers Star Trek Discovery, Alien Covenant,  NES classic shortage, and highlights from the Video Game Awards and PlayStation Experience.  Thanks for listening everybody!

Retro Fandango Eps. 50 - Bubble People (Nov. 16th, 2016)

November 17th, 2016

This episode we have on one of our favourite guests, Twitch the Retro Gamer Rantin’ for his 3rd appearance!  Many tangents and derailments penetrated this episode including, our favourite foods of all time, what ever happened to those Steam boxes, and are we gamers in a bubble? (The answer is yes.)  But we did stay on topic at times when we attempted to figure out what Fitgnat was talking about during a recent Google Hangout, shared our thoughts on the upcoming Nintendo Switch, Bethesda no longer issuing early review copies and Ram Vox gets a pop quiz in Canadian history!  Listener comments, the CC game of the month, and more all here on Retro Fandango!

Retro Fandango Eps. 48 - Two Dorks, One Vox (Oct. 12/2016)

October 12th, 2016

Derek and Tony from the TWO Dorks join us for this 2nd take of episode 48! For the first time a technical error caused us to lose part of a recording, but thankfully our guests were able to stick around and we got a whole show in.  We had a lot of fun hanging with the dorks and got some surprising answers to their favorite games of all time.  We also tested their skills with some 90’s trivia, I go on forever about a game called The Long Dark, and Vox is getting a new thrift store in his neighborhood. News covers the Bulletstorm remaster, Netfilx is getting more original content, Japan is getting a Famicom mini, the Star Wars follow up to Force Awakens will have a Empire Strikes Back tone, and Duke Nukem is back again. We get to the listener comments, the Cartridge Club game of the month, and more all in this episode of Retro Fandango!
