Before we jam out, this week’s news has us talking about the unlikely rebooting of RETRO Magazine. David and Robert have plenty to say about this one! There’s also the reveal of Samurai Shodown V making its way to modern consoles, Summer Games Done Quick smashing records, and another music artist who found a way to make game themes played backwards sound good.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary, R-Type gets inducted in this week’s Stage of History! Did you know what the R in the title originally stood for? We got the facts, Jack! Plus Robert chats about the music of Super Adventure Island in Obscura. We have our usual game giveaways you’ll want to get your hands on, and also another game of Random Select.
