ARGcast #51: All Things Konami with Alex McCumbers

by ARGcast

Deep dive with us into what made Konami a gaming powerhouse (then eventual shell of their former self) along with special guest Alex McCumbers!

Oh, Konami. There was a time when we all loved you and what you stood for. Join us as we look at the start of one of the biggest gaming companies during the NES era, how they continued to thrive afterwards, then careening off a cliff into public disdain.

ARGcast #51: All Things Konami with Alex McCumbers

The news at the top of the show celebrates the arrival of a Secret of Mana compilation. Too bad it’s Japan only! We then look into the release of DLC for a Dreamcast 16 years later. You’ll also want to listen up on the story of a Legend of Zelda fan who automated his house to run on Ocarina of Time melodies.

This week’s Stage of History welcomes in an authoritative mouse in Mappy, a pink puffball in Kirby’s Adventure, some photogenic pocket monsters in Pokemon Snap, and more! PLUS we have game giveaways, including one for the gorgeous Metroidvania title Dust: An Elysian Tail. You also don’t want to miss on the sideshow segment that is Random Select. Boy, does it ever get crazy this time!
