ARGcast #164: E3 2019 Recap, Contra: Rogue Corps w/ Emilio Lopez

by ARGcast

Comic and animation artist Emilio Lopez joins us to talk about his involvement with Contra: Rogue Corps, other E3 2019 reveals, and more retro gaming!

Another year, another E3 in the books. But it’s not every year when a new Contra game gets announced! Artist Emilio Lopez discusses his involvement with the recently revealed Contra: Rogue Corps, what fans can expect, and how it ties into the SNES game.

The news this week has us first tackling everything retro gaming related that was shown during E3. That’s followed by a Dragon Quest Slime shaped controller for Nintendo Switch, Arcade1up revealing more of their classic arcade cabinets, and the TurboGrafx-16 Mini joining the micro-console competition.

The Stage of History welcomes beloved rail shooter Panzer Dragoon and the last bear/bird combo release Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. Robert continues the animal love with Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge during Obscura. Be sure to nab our game codes (including one for Slay the Spire on Switch!), then stick around for a gooey round of Random Select. No, it ain’t Gooigi, but nice try!
