How to get older episodes of RetroforceGO!: For SR388


So, in the comments section of our last show, SR388 (great name!) asked how he could download older episodes of RFGO! from iTunes. Well, I looked into the situation and the answer is thus:

I really don't know.

See, most of the time, Destructoid is run by a select few, highly intelligent code masters that work tirelessly to ensure that the site runs like a Swiss clock. But sometimes, when those code masters occasionally collapse from exhaustion, the site is run by an arcane mixture of hope, fairy magic, three AA batteries, an effigy of Winston Churchill, and a vial of Chad Concelmo's tears.

Now, while Dtoid is about 99% the same under both methods of operations, a few details sometimes get overlooked when we're operating under the latter method mentioned. One of those details happened to be the number of shows that we had told iTunes to list for RFGO! (Apparently, that number was ten.)

Thankfully, the boy-geniuses that normally run the site noticed this and went into the heart of the machine and changed the iTune settings. Now exactly when the series of tubes that carries information such as this reaches Steve Job's money-making jukebox, is anyone's guess.

In my experience, iTunes is notoriously slow on the uptake and it may take quite some time for you to be able to download older shows from that service. In the meantime, though, you can download every single episode that we've released over on our feedburner RSS page-thingy.*

I really hope that that helps anyone interested in older episodes, and I would like to give a preemptive thanks to anyone whose willing to go back into our podcasting history. You rule, and thanks for listening.

*Believe it or not, but I'm convinced that the entire Internet is run on the hope-magic-batteries-effigy combination (Chad's tears are exclusive to Dtoid, all rights reserved). And I also have no idea what an RSS feed is, nor how you burn one. Scary, huh?

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
