RetroforceGO! Episode 51: Neo-retro and you

Another Monday is upon us, along with another one of Chad Concelmo's awesome MS Paint photos. The significance of these events leads to two conclusions. One, it's time for an new RetroforceGO! Two, Topher Cantler couldn't make it this week....

RetroforceGO! Episode 50: That's half of a hundred!

While the more astute listener may notice that today is, in fact, not Monday (the regular release day for RFGO!), he or she will be glad to have endured the extra day wait for this week's episode. Why? Because, and this is also a warning, t...

RetroforceGO! Epsisode 49: Castlevania Mania

Hey everybody! Sorry everything is so late today. Dear ol' Dyson couldn't make the show last night, so I didn't get my usual eight hour head start on exciting sound editing! But they say better late then never, right? Anyway, since I w...

RetroforceGO! Episode 48: The retro renaissance?

With all the "everything old is new again" mentality floating around the gaming world, the crew of RFGO! decided to weigh in on the current state of retro. Are companies just cashing in on the seemingly hot trend of retro? Or are ...

RetroforceGO! Episode 47: Treasure

So I missed the show yesterday. Have no fear, though, the show went on. Reverend Anthony jumped in to take the fourth place and Topher ran the task of hosting. How did things go? Well, we started doing the "what have you been playing&q...

RetroforceGO! Episode 46: Metal Gear

I know I say this every Monday but, hooray Monday! Not too much has changed over that course of the last week, but then again, not much does in the world of retro. I hear that in the next-gen world, a 360 burned a house down, Nintendo is st...

RetroforceGO! Episode 45: Listener questions return

Welcome to another Monday! I really don't have too much to say about this particular Monday. Aside from the usual stuff that happened during the weekend, this is a pretty standard Monday so far. So, yeah, it's pretty sunny here in San Franc...

RetroforceGO! Not Episode 44: The worst/best/worst episode ever

As you may have heard yesterday, we here at the show had some serious recording issues with our Cancun episode. And while we try and maintain a level of quality that you have come to know us for, no amount of editing trickery could make the...

GTA IV Claims its first murder victim! Archduke Franz Ferdinand shot!

Months before its inevitable release on home consoles, murder simulator GTA IV has already claimed its first victim: Austrian Archduke, Franz Ferdinand. The near century long belief that the Archduke's assassination was carried out by one, ...

RetroforceGO! Episode 43: Squaresoft

So does anyone know a good tax attorney? It's getting precariously close to the 15th of April, and lazy Dyson hasn't even bothered to total up his expenses for the year. You can claim Pizza Rolls as a business expense, right? I certainly ho...

RetroforceGO! Episode 42: Easter Eggs!

Hooray! Another year, another chance to celebrate the Raptor Jesus. It was a pretty good Easter, the Marshmallow Peeps did not end up getting Topher. He was rescued at the last minute by a shark named CTZ, who was also riding on top of an e...

RetroforceGO! Episode 41: Part one of the Hardware Series: Controllers

Is it me, or is it St. Patty's day? I'd heard that the church had moved the holiday to another day because of Lent, is this true? If so, as an Irish man this means that we get two days of celebration. Now I don't meant that we as a whole wo...

RetroforceGO! Episode 40: Don't believe the hype!

You know, I've never really had a "normal" job in my life, so Mondays were never too much of a dreadful thing for me. I'm not saying that I loved Mondays, though, but they certain they weren't anything that I disliked. But lately,...

RetroforceGO! Episode 39: Contra

What's more manly? The ripped and bulging form of Chad Concelmo (seen above)? Or the over the top manliness of the Contra series? The correct answer: neither. Just to give you an example of how manly Chad is, he woke up this morning in a pi...

RetroforceGO! Episode 38: Phantasy Star

Hi everybody, are you doing well? Yes? That's fantastic. We, on the other hand, have been having quite the week. From GDC, to Wondercon, to Chad deciding to "put babies" in certain female community members (and .tiff), it's been q...

RetroforceGO! Episode 37: We don't care about dead people edition

At least according to Jim's reporting of what Jackie-T thinks of us. It is an astounding presumption that Mr. T purports, but I'm sure he's only talking about the current generation of gamers because there'd be no way that any type of retro...

RetroforceGO! Episode 36: Greatest videogame couples

Welcome to Monday, folks. A special kind of Monday, if you will. The kind of Monday where things are starting to feel a little, I don't know ... sexier. Blame it on the fact that Valentine's Day is just around the corner, but I'm already fe...

RetroforceGO! Episode 35: Anything but the Super Bowl

Seriously, why do they capitalize the word Super Bowl? I mean, if it's going to be a psuedo national holiday, then I at least want the following Monday off from work. And by the following Monday, I mean right now: today. Oh well, I guess I ...

RetroforceGO! Episode 34: TurboGrafx-16!

Well everybody, another Monday is upon and with that, another RetroforceGO! Can you feel the excitement? Me too. Or maybe I'm just over-caffeinated from the gigantic glass of Diet Pepsi that I just pounded. Either way, I'm wide awake and ra...

RetroforceGO! Episode 33: Konami, and the code that changed the 'verse

Hoo-boy, it looks like it's going to be another one of those weeks. Not only did I get in a fight with some uppity gorilla (whose ass we had to kick to get my f***ing arm back!), but I'm forced to drag my lazy, old, retro carcass into work ...

RetroforceGO! Episode 32: Shmups

RetroforceGO! Episode 31: The Ending (Or: Totally not episode 32)

Yeah, funny things happen sometimes. Like when you think that you've done 31 awesome shows, but you've only done 30, but you still think that the latest show is number 32 -- sort of. At least I find it funny when these things happen, and th...

Merry Christmas from Destructoid (with special love for Tazaroot!)

RetroforceGO! Episode 27: Super Nintendo FTW!

I can honestly say, ladies and gentleman, that the response to yesterday's post that Topher made about this week's show was surprising. I knew that a lot of you listened to the show, but to see a total of 82 responses to a post about a show...

About Dysonone of us since 3:20 AM on 10.30.2006



When not protecting the world from the injustices on all things non-awesome, I have some time to play some games. Not much time, but I do what I can. There's a lot of non-awesome in the world, so myself and the rest of the members of Team Awesome stay quite busy.

Also, I live in San Francisco, so if you're in the area or see me around say hi. I promise I won't bite. I work full-time for two different video game related companies. At one I test the vidja games. At the other I do PR for video games. Eventually I will only be doing the PR gig, so I'll finally have some free time in which I can return to hosting RetroforceGO!

I'd tell you the names of the companies, but I think the one I test for would probably have a hissy fit if their legal department knew there was a Destructoid Associate Editor in their testing department ;)


Random bullshit:

I like pizza rolls
Diet Pepsi is win
I have a yellow Cuban pimp suit



I'm Scorpio
SNES was prolly my most favorite system
I have a cape and wear it often
I do not like banana flavored candy of any kind
I drink beer from brown paper bags
Weezer's El Scorcho pretty much describes me
You can always crash on my couch
I flip a coin like Two-face to make decisions
