Retro Games Show podcast episode one - Castlevania


This is episode 001 of Retro Games Show! Starring Josh Hayes & Bianca Torres!

If you're here, you saw me post this on twitter, Retroforce's forum, or maybe I sent it to you in an e-mail, I hope you like the podcast we did, we tried to make this awesome and I think it shows.

This rough cut has a couple things I will change when I upload it to lisybn, there isn't a tag up front saying "you are listening to a randombullseye podcast" and there is a five second gap between a sound effect up front and the loud guy talking where I want to add Bianca saying "Retro Games Show!" Otherwise, this is the final version of an episode for a Retro Games Show.

This is for Destructoid, fans of retro gaming, and everyone ever. I hope you like it. I want this to be a thing I do every week. Hopefully we can carry on in the spirit of RetroForceGO, Destructoid, and boners everywhere!


I never asked anybody if I could do this, but I have been super vocal about Retroforce GO coming back and more old school games being a thing for Destructoid. I don't want to take all of Retroforce GO's thunder or use all their tropes and in-jokes, I want to do my version of a revival of that show for Destructoid. Just like I did Bulltoid as a revival of Podtoid, but I wanted to present this as a direct revival. I've been talking about doing this since before Bulltoid was a thing, Bianca and some other people who'll be in and out on the show seem super enthusiastic about doing this, I'm enthusiastic about doing this, and I do it with nothing but love.

A guy who was new to Destructoid asked me while I wearing Retroforce GO shirts at the Sunday PAX dinner if I had anything to do with the show. I answered, "No, but I always wanted to. I wrote in a lot, they talked about my weenie dog, and it meant a lot to me."

That's it!

Coming soon as an actual book you can buy The Bonerquest. Hopefully you'll buy a copy when I'm done with it.

Will you accept The Bonerquest?

Zombies Ate My Neighbors is the best game ever.

Read fun articles Josh (Charlie) wrote for Tomopop or Nukezilla! Professionalism! Also I did some news for Destructoid. Sort of a real writer!

Check out Josh Hayes, a name Charlie uses for journalism on the internet so that he can say silly personal things without the fear of them being exposed openly. That and to hide from people he knew who he don't want to find him, not no way, not no how.
