ARGcast #96: Religion in Retro Gaming with “Nintendo Legend” Eric Bailey

by ARGcast

We get down on our knees and pray with special guest, the Nintendo Legend himself, Eric Bailey! Join us for an interesting look back on the impact of religion in retro gaming.

Seek a higher power, ARGonauts! We welcome our very special guest Eric Bailey AKA “Nintendo Legend” to discuss a couple of things near and dear to his heart – video games and religion! Learn how uptight Nintendo was in having no Christian themes in ALMOST all games on its platforms. All faiths point to the Triforce!

ARGcast #96: Religion in Retro Gaming with "Nintendo Legend" Eric Bailey

Before we test our faith, we hit the news with big revelations, such as the mystery of Toad’s debunked by Nintendo, and King of Kong villain Billy Mitchell having his high scores put to question. We also take a look at a really fun new Doom mod that Overwatch fans will definitely want to check out.

In this week’s Stage of History, we break bread with Wisdom Tree’s title that almost became Hellraiser (for real) Super 3D Noah’s Ark, as well as the over-the-top violent franchise-starter God of War. Robert then gets Biblical with the Hell-touring title Dante’s Inferno in Obscura. Pray that you’re the first to grab our game code giveaways, then test your gaming faith in another round of Random Select.
