ARGcast #73: Doing What Genesis Does with Ross Jaynes
We kick things off with a short news cycle on the upcoming Starcade marathon, as well as a Kickstarter campaign for a modern redesign of the N64 controller. Is it sacrilege to mess with a classic design, or is this a much needed change? Hit us up!
This week’s Stage of History is all about the best of the Genesis with hack and slasher Golden Axe, run and gunner Gunstar Heroes, and underrated puzzler Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine! Robert then shares with us a single player Contra-like shooter Midnight Resistance in Obscura. We have our game giveaways to grab hold of, and another game of Random Select. Seems the tables have turned on Robert this time! Can you guess faster than our contestants, ARGonauts?
