PodBytes – Episode 18: FF, E3, and Other Ms

PodBytes Episode 18

Students of Gaming History

E3 is wrapping up for another year, and has once again covered ground in showing us all the future, both near and far, of gaming. But here at BNBGAMING, some of the team just can’t be bothered with newfangled progress, and would rather spend time dwelling in the Dark Ages of the video game industry. Well, ok, that’s not quite true, but get a couple of “retro” gamers like Pascal and Jeff together, and lots of talk of old-school gaming is sure to commence.

In the process of chatting the day away, we somehow manage to address many of life’s pressing questions: What’s considered “retro”? What made Other M the worst Metroid title of them all? And why – oh why – are none of us skilled enough as gamers to have ever experienced any success with Nintendo’s classic stable of games? Join us for an all-new episode of PodBytes; we’re short our usual host, short the usual suspects, and just generally a few fries short of a Happy Meal.

PodBytes – Episode 18: FF, E3, and Other Ms stars Pascal Tekaia and, for the first time, Jeff Trewin. Originally recorded on Saturday, June 2, 2012.  Full run time: 59 mins.

    • Also, I missed Jeff mentioning Backloggery, so I went and filled it out and of the games off the top of my head (both missed games and ones I will want to play when they release) I’ve come up with 38! Much gaming must be done to finish these.
