ARGcast has been around for a whole year! We celebrate this milestone with a game of Video Game Desert Island with our buddy Jason “Skelly” Belec!
Can you believe that the ARGcast has been around for one year? We celebrate this special occasion with our guest and good buddy at Nerdfensive Jason “Skelly” Belec as we share what the one game from each console we would bring with us on a desert island (assuming there’s power, of course).

ARGcast #54: One Year of ARGcast and Video Game Desert Island with Skelly!
Before getting into that, we share dive into some news. There’s the early success of the SNES / Super Famicom visual compendium Kickstarter, and a KOTOR remake/reboot rumor that’s not strong with the Force. We also discuss the puzzling decision by Nintendo to discontinue the NES Classic, and a hot new way to play Pong.
The Stage of History gets into a classic favorite of Skelly’s with Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. We also come full circle from our very first episode with a look back on the sexually marketed title Fear Effect. Robert also shares new school classic Fez as it celebrates its 5 year anniversary.
In celebration of our own anniversary, we have FOUR game codes to giveaway! Be sure to nab copies of Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic for Xbox One, and Mr. Shifty for Nintendo Switch and Steam. Even Skelly joins in on the fun with a Steam code for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
Finally, join us for another game of Random Select. Which character is David this time? The guys just get this one at the skin of their teeth!
