ARGcast #57: Cruising with Gamer Gauntlet Founder Curtis Smith
The top of the show has a nice mixture of surprising news and moments in retro gaming history. First on the table is a rumor that got around of Super Empire Strikes Back getting a modern revival much like its predecessor. We then discuss the surprising reveal of Darksiders III, Fiddy’s kid making decisions on his rap daddy’s game 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, and a look back on the beginnings of NES emulation with NESticle. Try not to snicker!
This week’s Stage of History takes us out on the water with the arcade racer Hydro Thunder, and Robert schools us on a seldom mentioned game starring our favorite fighting robot Mega Man: The Wily Wars in Oscura. We also have our game giveaways with codes for Akhihabara: Feel The Rhythm and Super Rude Bear Resurrection. Then of course there’s a game of Random Select. Who could Robert possibly be this week? Listen up and play along!
