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...

RetroforceGO! Episode 91: Platformers

Happy Friday Saturday, listeners! Allow me first to apologize for the lateness of the show this week. Despite Geraldo Beedog's shocking accusations of scandal, the truth of the matter is that there was simply a bit of trouble uploading the ...

RetroforceGO! records episode 91 tonight: Platformers

As we sat around in the jacuzzi on our yacht the other night, it occurred to us that we've come almost a full hundred episodes without doing a show on platformers. Upon realizing this, Chad nearly spit out his champagne -- which would have ...

RetroforceGO! Episode 89: Punch-Out!!

Happy Fri ... er, Wednesday, listeners! This week we recorded a bit early, so hopefully our yammering will help accellerate the arrival of your Friday. Or at the very least, make up for the lack of a Podtoid this week, which I can safely sa...

RetroforceGO! records episode 89 tonight: Punch-Out!!

Yes, it's early! And given the tone of the past couple of episodes, that might be a good thing. Perhaps recording earlier in the week will stave off our appetite for nonsense. Probably not, though. In any case, the full cast is back this we...

RetroforceGO! Episode X: The Muppets

Happy Friday, listeners! Since the rest of the cast was away this week, Chad and I decided that, rather than skip the show altogether, we'd just record our own episode about whatever the hell we wanted. What we wanted was an episode about t...

Good afternoon, dear listeners. It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of the fact that your regularly scheduled episode of RetroforceGO! will not be recorded this week. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have once again f...

RetroforceGO! Episode 88: Peripherals (also chaos)

Happy Friday, listeners! This week was the second in our hardware series, in which we discussed peripherals. And then ... well, you can take a listen for yourself. Everything sort of spiralled into madness. We crashed the show into a busy p...

RetroforceGO! records episode 88 tonight: Peripherals

It's been a while since we had ourselves a nice hardware episode, so this week we thought we'd talk about peripherals. Not controllers so much (we kinda already did that), but all the other ridiculous crap that plugged in, snapped on, or ot...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: New Gamer Dictionary

I was absolutely sure that this week's HAWP would be a "love it or hate it" sort of an episode, but roughly half the comments so far seem to think that it's just so-so. More proof that I have no idea what the hell I am doing.Also,...

RetroforceGO! records episode 86 tonight: Commodore 64

Finally, right? We know many of you have been waiting for a Commodore 64 episode, so tonight's your night. I could pretend I know what I'm talking about and go on about floppy discs and keyboards, but I never had one of these things, and it...

RetroforceGO! not recording this week: sadness, pandas, etc

Kids, come over here for a minute and have a seat. No, not on the radiator, you'll ruin your ass. Over here. Listen. There comes a time when mommies and daddies all have plans during the same week and can't record. It's just something that ...

RetroforceGO! Episode 85: Listener questions

Happy Friday, listeners! This week was another of our listener questions episodes, which is our favorite thing to do. Mostly because it's easy. In keeping with that spirit of laziness, I'm not going to write anything else here but these hig...

RetroforceGO! records episode 85 tonight: Listener questions

It's that time again. The day has come when you, the listener, decide what this week's show is about. Not because we relinquish control, but because we agree to spend the entire episode discussing nothing but your questions. It's something ...

RetroforceGO! Episode 84: Puzzle games

Happy Friday, listeners! This week we sat in a circle and recorded our Puzzle Game addicts’ support group session. I don’t think anyone came out of it any less hooked on block dropping, but we sure had fun talking about it anywa...

RetroforceGO! records episode 84 tonight: Puzzle games

Back in 1985, a guy by the name of Alexey Pajitnov designed a game called Tetris. In years following, it's spawned countless clones, variations and altogether new games, perhaps most notably the upcoming smash hit Wii Ware title, Puzzle Puz...

RetroforceGO! records episode 83 tonight: Metal Slug

We touched on it briefly during the course of our Neo Geo episode, but come on. It's Metal Slug. You can't touch on it briefly. So we're doing a whole episode about it. Partly because it's one of my favorite games ever, but mostly because i...

RetroforceGO! not recording this week, don't tell Chad on us

Okay, so here's the thing, see. Chad, Dyson and Colette are partying it up in Miami for the Dtoid 3-year anniversary, and have left Stella and me behind because they don't love us. That would be okay, except that Chad left his Jeep parked i...

RetroforceGO! Episode 82: The NES

Happy Friday, listeners! And happy birthday to Phist, who probably doesn't listen to the show anymore, but I'll say it anyway. This week's show is about the Nintendo Entertainment System, and it's about time. Highlights include: MC Scrappy ...
