by ARGcast

ESPN esports commentator Arda Ocal joins David and Candice to talk about where retro games fit into his field, his love for NHL ’94, and more retro gaming!

Hit the ice, ARGonauts! ESPN esports commentator (and ARGcast fan) Arda Ocal comes on the show to share his thoughts on where retro games fit into the world of competitive gaming. And Candice Shane comes back on the show with her lovely commentary, including a story on how she catfished her brother through a create-a-player mode.

The news this week kicks off with our brutally honest opinions on the return of Tiger Electronics. That’s followed by the Halo PC port bringing back retro sounds, DuckTales Remastered returning to digital stores, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare putting their own spin on Tamagotchi.

The Stage of History celebrates the beloved hockey title NHL ‘ 94 (along with Arda’s own love for it). And don’t forget to also grab our game code giveaway for 3,000th Duel for Nintendo Switch.
