ARGcast #101: Remembering 18 Years of PlayStation 2

The news are flowing this week starting with the debut of Atari’s new console at GDC. We then cover some key retro releases including Sega Genesis Collection, Bad Dudes vs. Dragon Ninja, Moon Patrol, and more! Then there’s the release of a smartphone case that doubles as a portable retro gaming device, and a hacker on YouTube shows how he got a Sony Watchman to work with a Nintendo Switch.

The Stage of History this week swings for the fences with Nintendo’s Tennis, then jumps back to the future with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Robert brings the mood down with the PS2 deep cut Darkwatch in Obscura. We also have our usual game giveaways, as well as the big 100 episode giveaway for the SNES Classic!

Instead of Random Select this week, Robert springs on some interviews during the Far Cry 5 event he attended, so don’t miss out on those either.
