ARGcast #78: Playing Atari 2600 Today with Andre Tipton
On top of all the Atari love, we also share some love for NES Golf which is hidden inside your Nintendo Switch. There’s also some affection shown for the recent PS4 release of Final Fantasy IX, and the announcement of a Kunio-kun (River City) collection. Try not to BARF from excitement!
We also welcome some Atari 2600 classics and a beloved Square RPG in this week’s Stage of History. Robert then brings up one of the most notorious pornographic games on the console in Obscura. We then close out the show with a rather intense game of Random Select. Who could David be this time? Don’t end up with the short end of the stick when making your guess, ARGonauts!
From the ashes, David Giltinan and Robert Workman return to invade your ears with (what else?) Another Retro Gaming Podcast! Join us for gaming talk with a retro bend. We’ll also have topics to discuss, old school titles to celebrate, guests to entertain, and even games to give away too! It’s a whole new era here on ARGcast.
