Episode 14 – Retro-Tinted Glasses

We were supposed to talk Killer7 this week, but in true fashion neither Jon nor I bothered to play the game. Instead, we bring Nathan back as we have a somewhat casual chat about the games we grew up loving. Sit back and relax as we wax poetic about some nostalgia! (p.s. check the tags for the games we discuss.)

This week’s game-along picks are NON-EXISTENT! Go ahead and throw some suggestions and tune in a week from now for our discussion!

Episode 13 – Shadows of the Empire

RKS-ep13splash.png

The take-over begins as Nathan (better known as “Kraznor” by his legion of fans) joins Paul and Jon on a discussion about a game he loved as a kid. This episode marks a number of milestones including:

  • Nathan actually has NOSTALGIA for something!
  • Jon actually hates a game!
  • Paul actually doesn’t talk a whole lot!
  • Retro Killscreen actually stays on topic! (for the most part…)

This week’s game-along picks are Killer7(PS2/GC) and maybe Space Channel 5(SD) so find a copy of one or both and tune in a week from now for our discussion!

Episode 12 – Old Habits Die Hard

RKS-ep12splash.png

After putting it off for so long, Jon and Paul finally get to playing Parasite Eve & Die Hard Arcade and try to catch up by talking about BOTH! Please note, there is some Parasite Eve spoiler talk here and there when it’s brought up but let’s be honest… if you cared about spoilers, you would’ve played it by now!

Also, a well-known friend of the show sends in an email in an attempt to squeeze in some movie opinions!

This week’s game-along picks are Star Wars: Shadows Of The Empire(N64) and Space Channel 5(SD) so find a copy of one or both and tune in a week from now for our discussion!

Episode 11 – A Little Help From Our Friends

Well, we knew it would come to this. Our first live broadcast recording of Retro Killscreen happened kind of last minute as Jon and I were the busiest we’ve been in a long time this week and figured it might be cool to answer listener questions about retro games as we tried our best to get you guys something to listen to.

I apologize for anyone who was excited to listen to some Parasite Eve or Die Hard Arcade talk this week, but we will be doing those next week so use the extra time to catch up or play along if you haven’t been!

I want to thank everyone who helped us get a show together by being inquisitive enough to help us generate some good discussions. It was great to hear from our listeners and we thank you for downloading and listening to us every week. It means more than you know!

This week’s game-along picks are Die Hard Arcade(SAT) and Parasite Eve(PSX)… AGAIN! So find a copy of one or both and tune in a week from now for our discussion!

Episode 10 - Mario Sucks-ty Four

Things get interesting this week as Jon and Paul try to discuss the qualities of Super Mario 64 while actually playing the game (Jon) or just having a strong dislike of the game (Paul). The conversation jumps as it always does to subsequent subjects discussing the qualities of Mario games, Nintendo intellectual properties that should be exploited more often and… Jurassic Park 4? I don’t even know anymore.

This week’s game-along picks are Die Hard Arcade(SAT) and Parasite Eve(PSX)… STILL! (sorry) So find a copy of one or both and tune in two weeks from now for our discussion!
