Yikes! It's been weeks since Colette, Stella, and I recorded the last new episode of Best.Podcast.EVER! And for that we truly apologize. I blame the general chaos of the holidays. But now we are back, well rested, equipped in our cutest win...

'RetroforceGO! spin-off' ep. #1 is ready for downloadin'!

I was this close to not posting this first episode of the RetroforceGO! spin-off. First, the name: When Colette Bennett, Stella Wong, and I recorded this first episode, the show was called Fingerbangcast! Now -- after a little drama -- it i...

Help us pick a (new) name for the RetroforceGO! spin-off!

This may be the shortest-lived podcast name in the history of podcasts. After announcing Fingerbangcast -- an exciting new RetroforceGO! spin-off -- on Monday, some non-Destructoid-related drama unfortunately occurred. While I wanted to mak...

Introducing Fingerbangcast, a RetroforceGO! spin-off!

When Destructoid's late and great podcast RetroforceGO! -- something I was lucky enough to have a hand in producing -- ended with Episode 100, it was a very bittersweet moment. On the one hand, I was so proud to be a part of something so wo...

RetroforceGO! Episode 100

Yatta! We did it! I think. I am both proud and honored to finally present to you our 100th episode. It's more or less a listener questions show, but a little more personal this time around. Also, Chad totally wrote a song especially for thi...

RetroforceGO! records episode 100 tonight: Retroforce

Well kids, looks like we made it. Tonight we record our 100th episode. We thought about what our topic should be, and having already done a few retrospective episodes, we figured another one would bore you. You've heard those stories, right...

RetroforceGO! episode 98: Super Metroid

Happy Friday, listeners! This week's episode is all about Super Metroid, and might also be the first time Chad and Dyson have discussed the topic together without arguing. Not a bad way to bring us toward the end of the season. Highlights i...

RetroforceGO! records episode 98 tonight: Super Metroid

RetroforceGO! episode 96: Pinball

With the ladies away at SDCC, Chad, Dyson, Conrad and I got together to record the manliest episode of RetroforceGO ever. If we'd planned it to happen this way, we could have done something super testosterone-driven, but instead we talked a...

RetroforceGO! records episode 96 tonight: Pinball

In somewhat of a departure from the norm, this week's episode is not about videogames. I say "somewhat" because it's not entirely unusual for the show to not be about videogames, even if that's our topic every week. But this time ...

RetroforceGO! episode 95: Listener questions

Retroforce Recap: so what about those dirty games, now?

The RetroforceGo! team has been talking about a new idea that we thought our listeners might possibly enjoy. Rather than discuss a bunch of obscure games every week that some of you may have never heard of, we thought it might be cool to ac...

RetroforceGO! episode 94: Naughty retro games

Happy Friday, listeners. While our show is never exactly what you'd call "safe for work," this episode is seriously NSFW. Conrad joined us this week, to discuss all the dirty, pervy things that game developers used to be able to g...

RetroforceGO! not recording this week due to banditos

Now that I have your attention, I'd like to inform you that we will not be recording this week. Okay, that's a lie; I probably don't have your attention. The other part is true, though. Our train was robbed by a pack of wild banditos, ...

RetroforceGO! episode 92: E3 09

RetroforceGO! records episode 92 tonight: E3 09

We're back from E3 -- those of us who got to go, anyway -- and the surprising amount of retro-flavored hotness on display this year has left us with quite a bit to talk about. So that's what we're gonna do. We'll be taking a look at what ap...
