ARGcast #120: Anime Style Retro Games with Evan Bourgault
First we dive into the news about the Uncharted fan film starring Nathan Fillion, and what we’d really love to see in a proper Uncharted movie. We then take a look at the announcement for a western release of Return of Double Dragon, Stewart Copeland of The Police lending his expertise to Spyro Reignited Trilogy, and a Final Fantasy XV mod that will surely please PS1 fans.
The Stage of History has us welcome a couple of newer retro RPGs that sport an anime flair with Dragon Quest VIII and Persona 4, plus Robert takes us back to the truly obscure anime shooter Ordyne in Obscura. Be sure to pick up our game code giveaways for Lost Technology and Sonic Mania, then stick around a bit longer for another round of Random Select! Where (or when) would you find David’s character this week?
