ARGcast #97: Love in Retro Gaming with Nick Shively and Lori Dierinzo

We first hit the news where we have a followup from Billy Mitchell on the Donkey Kong high score scandal that is rocking the retro gaming landscape currently. Then there are some cool new retro related products that have hit the crowdfunding circuit including the micro-sized PocketSprite, the long (not-so-)awaited N64 port of 40 Winks, and brand new Genesis platformer Tanglewood.

In this week’s Stage of History, we cover the gamut of love stories from the romantic love triangle in Final Fantasy VIII to the hard-boiled tragedy that is Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. Robert then welcomes the most obscure title to hit Obscura – the PS2 pucker-upper Chulip! Be sure to also grab our game code giveaways, and stay awhile longer for another game of Random Select. This one truly takes our contestants to the brink!
