ARGcast #162: Metroidvania Games w/ Jeremy Parish of Retronauts

by ARGcast

Jeremy Parish of Retronauts joins us to chat about the Metroidvania genre he helped popularize including favorite games, where the term came from, and more!

Time to explore, ARGonauts! Jeremy Parish of Retronauts graces us with his presence to chat about (what else?) Metroidvania games! Hear how he helped the term enter the gaming lexicon and what his favorite games are in the genre.

The news this week has us cover the third batch of games that will be in the Sega Genesis Mini as well as a fanmade GameCube Classic we found. That’s followed by the return of the Game Boy Color (as a watch), Resident Evil 2 Remake well on its way to outselling the original, and the John Wick NES game we wish were real.

This week’s Stage of History celebrates all things great about Metroidvania with Metroid: Zero Mission and Cave Story. Robert then gets more modern with Shadow Complex during Obscura. Be sure to nab our themed game code giveaways, then stick around for another round of Random Select! Who could Robert be this time?
