ARGcast #18: QuakeCon 2016, and Nintendo Hates Metroid?

by ARGcast

Robert spoke with some cool cats at QuakeCon, plus we cover the latest fan project that got slammed by Nintendo’s legal hammer!

In this shortened episode of ARGcast, we share some QuakeCon interviews, chat about the rise and fall of a fanmade Metroid II remake, and question the possibility of a robopocalypse with a well made Virtua Fighter robot!

ARGcast #18: QuakeCon 2016, and Nintendo Hates Metroid?

At QuakeCon, Robert had the pleasure to speak with Dave Oshry of New Blood Interactive, Steam Knight developer Paula Rae AKA Paula Tacos, and Shadow Warrior 2 PR Tadek Zielinksi. You’ll want to join us on the ground floor to hear this!

We next get into AM2R – otherwise known as Another Metroid 2 Remake – which was a fan remake of the Game Boy classic 10 years in the making. Find out about its short lifespan in the public eye before Nintendo’s lawyers put an end to it. Should the Big N work with these dedicated and talented fans to bring a 2D Metroid title back, or is Federation Force fine for now? How is this connected to that Nintendo Power archive that was briefly up? Listen up to find out!

The closes with us marveling at a robot made to look and act just like Akira of Virtua Fighter fame, polygons and all! Which other characters would you like to see get the same treatment? Be sure to let us know!

The Stage of History this week welcomes in the obscure arcade quiz game Professor Pac-Man, Sega’s “welcoming to your gwave” Altered Beast, Yoshi’s debut in Super Mario World, and more! We also have game code giveways GALORE, so be sure to grab them while you can.
