RetroforceGO!: Episode 8: I miss arcades photo



Well, things are back to normal here at RFGO! (whatever that means). Colette is back on the show -- she was healing from a brutal wolf attack last week -- and rejoins the rest of us as we take a walk down memory lane. Today's episode is pure nostalgia, folks, and should be some informative listening for those of you wondering why we love our retro so much. Arcades people, it was all about arcades.

Random highlights!

  • I think that this is the third "BEST WEEK EVAR!" from Chizzo
  •  Hey, did somebody want to hear about Balloon Fight?
  • Soon, the Wii shall be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.
  • Barcade is Toph's new heaven on earth, suicide note now unecessary
  • Reader questions!
  • The Reverend wants you dead, really
  • Chizzo does an arcade top ten, disses my beloved Street Fighter II
  • Stop putting your gum in the goddamn memory slots!
  • I remember there being an announcement of some importance?
Of course, none of this makes any sense, but it soon will after you listen to the show. To do that,you can head over to our podcasting page or just steal our RSS feed. Try dropping by our Myspace page and participating in the BEE SUIT!! picture barrage. Oh, did I mention that we're on iTunes?

Flex those muscles, Machamp

This is vaguely the same footage of Pokkén Tournament we've seen over the past couple weeks, but it's a direct capture of the game, so what the hell. Good recap of the current roster, though do note that the voice over and text are in Japanese. Long way to go before this'll get localized. What's going on with Pikachu (starting at 1:25)? That expression is Kirby-in-the-USA angry.more
