ARGcast #192: Speedrunning and “The Easy Way” w/ 8-Bit Steve

by ARGcast

Record-breaker 8-Bit Steve joins us to chat about speedrunning and his book series that teaches you how to beat hard games “The Easy Way”!

Take out Jason once and for all, ARGonauts! 8-Bit Steve is our guest this week to talk about speedrunning and the community around it. He also tells us about his upcoming strategy guide series called The Easy Way that teaches you how to beat hard games no matter your skill level starting with the infamous NES title Friday the 13th.

This week’s news starts with word that Atari is opening its own line of hotels for gamers. That’s followed by returning favorites coming to Samurai Shodown and a long lost Super Famicom game sees the light of day.

The Stage of History has us battling the purple-clad Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th. Robert then goes swashbuckling in The Pirates of Dark Water during Obscura. And don’t forget to grab our game code giveaways for Blazing Beaks and OMG Zombies!
