ARGcast #190: Handheld Gaming History w/ Brian Crecente

by ARGcast

Polygon and Kotaku founder Brian Crecente joins us to passionately share his love for portable gaming with a look through handheld consoles in history!

Take us on the go, ARGonauts! We’re joined by Polygon and Kotaku founder Brian Crecente in this heavily informative episode on the history of handheld gaming. We talk about Nintendo (of course), but also shine a spotlight on the lesser-known consoles. Gizmondo? N-Gage? Cybiko? We cover them all!

This week’s news is jam-packed starting with PlayStation skipping E3 (again) and new details on the Super Nintendo World theme park. That’s followed by Awesome Games Done Quick shattering records, Limited Run releasing Streets of Rage 4, Super Mario Bros. running on an Intellivision II, and Rogue One writer Gary Whitta eyeing Star Fox.

The Stage of History shows some Neo Geo Pocket Color love with Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure. Robert then takes to the skies with After Burner: Black Falcon for PSP during Obscura. And if you’re a PlayStation Vita fan, don’t forget to grab our game codes for NightCry and Collar X Malice.
