Retro Fandango Eps. 44 - Fanboy Purge

Yes,this will be the last Retro Fandango on the Cartridge Club feed, and in true Fandango fashion we leave behind a giant 3hr 40 minute stain! We probably won't be getting our rent deposit back. But this is what happens when you give us almost a month off!

Our guest, Chris Roberts from the NARC podcast joins us to discuss purging collections, an Atari 5200 holding a water pipe for 30 years,The Killing Joke, and we test him with some Contra trivia. Ram Vox watches some Dirty Harry which starts a Dirty Harry vs Mad Max war,and tries a Call of Duty game. BuriedOnMars adds a PS4 to his collection and gives the newest Ratchet and Clank game the praise it deserves; And is confronted by his niece and nephew for his Ghostbusters hate. We talk a deep look at what exactly a fanboy is and trash talk our way through the Beat My Score discussion. News covers the Shovel Knight hitting Japan, the NES Classic, Nintendo NX rumors, and how horrible modern day Activision can be. The CartridgeClub game of the month Shovel Knight, last month's game Majora's Mask and more all in this episode of RETRO FANDANGO!

Cartridge Club Ep. 35 - Majora’s Cast

July was a little creepier this year and no that’s not because P1 is back but rather because the club was playing The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. This is certainly one of the darker entries in the Zelda series and has always been cast aside as being too different or too un-Zelda like. It’s gained a cult following over the years and this month the club has decided to see if it’s as much as a stinker as they thought or has their been a gem masked under all that darkness.
This month the Cartridge Bros are joined by three incredible guests: A legend in his own right and the creator of the Barrie Game Exchange, Nintendo Hodge! As well, two of the boys from the amazing gaming podcast Bonus Barrel, Rob and Leff!
Will the club members enjoy themselves more this time through? Did anyone actually like it back in the day? Does the game make some people feel like they’re members of the “Make a Wish” foundation? Will Hodge be selling his copy at the Barrie Game Exchange? Do the Bonus Barrell boys damage it with their recommendation system? Find out the answers to these questions and more this month on, The Cartridge Club!

Cartridge Club Ep. 34 - SoniCast

Retro Fandango Eps. 42 - Sonic’s Fist

Let the conspiracies begin! What happened during our #1Console challenge segment will live in Fandango infamy and it would be impossible to sum it up in only a few sentences.  Listen to it at 1X speed.  Listen to it twice.  Make your own conclusions if you must.  All I can say is what you hear is exactly what happened. For sure.

But the #1Console challenge was only one small part of the show!  Yoshi Knuckles visits to give away a S-Video modded Sega Genesis; we wrap up what happened with Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo at E3 with a big wrap up; Ray Parker Jr’s Ghostbusters get a remix, The Barrie Game Exchange preparations are underway at the Mars household; a Patreon might be started for Ram Vox’s canoe fund; a possible Bulletstorm remaster; free PC games; Gazebo talk; the Cartridge Club game of the month and more all in this episode of Retro Fandango!

Another fun episode of Retro Fandango in the books! Yep, we're 40 now and so over the hill. But we have a fresh new quest to make us feel young and alive! Cartridge Clubber and from the YouTube channel Cannot be Tamed, Pam joins us for a straight up DeVito episode. The #1Console challenge is updated, we talk about what we've been playing, laser dics players, and Vox has seen the Force Awakens! We then talk about some of our favourite DOS games and which PC games from that era would make for a good Cartridge Club game of the month. News covers the media treating Paul Feig poorly, a new NES console with HDMI out, and Sega's virtual hub on Steam is doing very well. Steve Urkel, Planscape Torment, Donkey Kong Country, Sonic, and more all in this one episode!

Cartridge Club Ep. 32 - Pod Hand

What a month for the Cartridge Club! For April we played God Hand, a controversial third person beat ‘em up sort of game. A ton of people chose to pass on God Hand this month, I can’t honestly blame them because if not for the club I too would have never played it; however, if you’re interested in hearing what the people who did play it have to say then you’ve come to the right spot!
This month P2 is joined by the “Sexy Conan O’Brien” of the Cartridge Club, Vintage Video Game Geek! As well the U.K. sentai legend himself, TokuJoe! And lastly, the one who not only mastered Normal mode of God Hand but bent the game over his lap and gave it a good spanking, MinotaurZombie!
Did everyone make it through the game? Does the game make fun of lots of stereotypes? Can you spank the male enemies as well as the female ones? Is the game as bad as some people have said? Find out here!

Retro Fandango Eps. 38 - Emulated Vox

For episode 38 of Retro Fandango BuriedOnMars welcomes his new co-host JRocktheGameRocker!  Yes, Ram Vox has been demoted to a guest. It was unclear if he would be able to make this one after his hometown was hit with two earthquakes. After Vox gives us a status update, we welcome long time Cartridge Clubber and first time Fandangler, RyHoMagnifico to the show.  We talk a bit about what we’ve been playing, wrap up Miitomo Gate, and discuss Curtiss leaving the #1Console challenge.  Since Microsoft announced they will be discontinuing manufacturing of the Xbox 360, we share some of our favorite games and red rings. News covers the Playstation 4.5, AC/DC bringing in Axl Rose to replace Brian Johnson, and we talk about the trailer for the new Ghostbusters game.  The Cartridge Club game of the month only gets a brief mention since we are psyched for the SNES classic Donkey Kong Country in May.  A smooth DeVito episode brought together by some solid guests.  Don’t miss this one!

Retro Fandango Eps. 37 - Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure (Flow Naturally)

Big thanks to Duke from Retro Nonsense and Eric The Mighty Q Dawg for being our amazing guest and taking some time to talk about Pee Wee!  We do take some time before we get to Pee-Wee's Big Adventure so this Fandango can flow naturally.    We talked about games we've been playing,is Miitomo a game?, are the Cartridge Bros still in the #1Consolechallenge?, and there is some more three word review controversy. When we finally get to the Peester, Vox gives him the full on Jeopardy trivia treatment, and this one is a nail bitter that goes down to the wire! We talk about our favorite Pee Wee moments, characters, the dance, Large Marge and the super sexy Jan Hooks!   Alright. Gas tank is empty and my bladder is full. Until next time Fandanglers!

Retro Fandango Eps. 36 - It’s Getting Hot In Here

Getready to heat up and a possibly give in to the urge to remove an article of clothing or two. For only the 2nd time in Fandango lore, Vox and Mars carry a show by themselves... Well,2/3rds of a show. Our scheduled guest was unable to record due to illness and thevintagevideogamegeek himself stepped in at the last minute to donate an hour of his time.  During what was spent with vintage, we established the brilliance of Shatner's rendition of Elton John's RocketMan, I let loose on the lousy 10% of the CC Google Hangouts that are all hung up on spoilers, and Vox and I reveal what we have planned for the next few Schwarzenegger episodes. Later on Vox and Mars talk Urban Chaos: Riot Response, Hulk Hogan, Mr. T, the Wedding Singer,click bait gaming articles, the PS4.5, Indiana Jones 5, a new The Tick TV show, and little plastic sleeves for you game manuals. Of course we talk about what we've been playing and the Cartridge Club game of the month, Alan Wake. Big thanks again to vintage for helping us out!

Retro Fandango Eps. 34 - Nier our Wheelhouse

Ah, another Fandango where we just sit and chat. Love it! Joining hosts Ram Vox and BuriedOnMars this time is Chris aka @NintendoHodge. Chris runs the Barrie Game Exchange, a regular swap meet for retro video gamers in Barrie Ontario. His next show is coming up in late March, so a big discussion on who and what will be their ensues. Chris reveals his love for Zelda and zombies; Vox's cough lingers while he debates if he should read what happens in the Force Awakens instead of watching the movie; and Mars try's out a new catch phrase. The Coleco Chameleon stumbles out a “prototype”, the upcoming Star Trek series gets a show runner, the Kindergarten Cop sequel gets a trailer, and Nier gets a whole lotta love.

Ryan (aka @itsRocketSauce) and Bill from the STCPodcast (@STCPod) join hosts Ram Vox and BuriedOnMars to discuss big guns, “fun” facts, segregated edges (you read that right), the Nape, Stallone's physique, and bad acting accents.

What better way to start off the new year than with a game that is universally loved? Instead we’re going with Crash Bandicoot 2! Will everyone enjoy the game? Is it possible to complete the game without cheating? Will you learn some interesting facts about Australia? Will we get to hear what Curstiss is looking forward to playing in 2016?

Retro Fandango Eps. 32 - Shemp Is Not Urine

Guess who's back? You maybe be able to keep the Mars out of Fandango, but you can't keep the Fandango out of Mars!... or something like that... For this episode we are joined by Rip from the NARC podcast who was great at keeping up with the vast amount of side tangents and topics we covered in this one. Many celebrities have past away recently but I give Lemmy from Motorhead the proper elegy that JRock forgot to give him in the last episode, Vox grades a Masters of the Universe fan film with a big fat F-, we answer some Fandangler Questions, discuss if Yoshi Knuckles is in or out of the #1Console Challenge, and give our top 5 games of 2015. News covers a man who leaves his SNES on for 20 years to preserve a save, and the details of the up coming Die Hard prequel. We also confirm that Reginald Vel Johnson is always a cop and get the proper way to pronounce “Nier” locked up. The Witcher 3, The 3 Stooges, Sonic and urine! All this in one tiny episode of Retro Fandango!

Retro Fandango Eps 31 - Mission Without Mars

We're back for another year, Fandanglers!  Well, one of us is.  Unfortunately, Kevin had to sit this one out so strap yourselves in, listeners, as Mr. Vox does some unsupervised podcasting and tackles his biggest challenge yet...editing!  This episode may not have the same level of polish you're accustomed to but the content is there.  Especially when you factor in the energy and excitement that can only come from the combined efforts of guest co-hosts @JRockGameRocker and @VintageVGGeek.  Together we talk what we've been up to, pirate NES carts, Jessica Jones, Hellboy, the outrageous prices of the Oculus Rift and Lego sets and Vox finally sets the record straight on why Napoleon Dynamite is "STUPID".  All that plus a game of quotes and...oh yeah, the #1Console Challenge has begun!!

Retro Fandango Eps. 30 - Not A Very Christmas Special

For a late December episode we didn't spend much time talking about Christmas. Meh, we had other things to get to. Like how guests P1 and P2 will now be know as Sean and Marc on the Fandango! Sean is hitting the seven seas for seven months so we talked a bit about how this will effect the club. We also go into the selection process for game of the month, the games we've been playing, and spend a good chunk talking about the #1Console challenge. (Hopefully everyone who finds this offensive has a sticky fast forward button.) In news we cover Kojima leaving Konami, the Retro VGS re-branding itself as the Colecovision, and a man who gets hit by a car while playing Fallout 4. Game of the month talk, donair sauce, and massive bulks are all covered in this episode of Retro Fanango! #MassiveBulk #DonairSauce

Retro Fandango Eps. 25 - Back To The Future

If I had a time machine and could pull anyone out of the past, present, or future to talk about Robert Zemeckis' Back To The Future trilogy; I'd still end up choosing Curtiss from @GirlfriendVs and the vintagevideogamegeek @VintageVGGeek. Stories about time travel are usually plagued with plot holes and the BTTF series is no exception. While the first is a perfect film and its sequels are great, every instance where Marty and Doc time travel opens a new discussion of what the rules of time and space are. And who better to have at it than four people who have no concept of what time and space is? Well, no harm done and at least hilarity ensued!

Cartridge Club Ep. 25 - Burnout 3: PodCast

Starting off Season 3 of the Cartridge Club with a bang!... Or a crash... Either way the club was in for an exciting first entry to the racing genre. Was Burnout 3 the right choice for their first racing game? Will Dean from Round2Gaming 100% the game within the first week of playing it? Or will Kevin and Ram Vox from Retro Fandango discover someone relieving themselves with their mic still on?

Retro Fandango Eps. 24 - Retro Disaster System

Hosts @TheRamVox (Richard) and @Buried_On_Mars (Kevin) are joined by the winner of the previous Live Show's trivia @MightyQDawg (Eric). This was a laid back DeVito episode, but there was no shortage of things to discuss. We find out what Eric's favorite game of all time is, Kevin takes us back to the Waterloo game swap and his adventures with Bill from @STCpod and his wife Sarah @Sarca_Sim, and Richard reveals his scumbag secrets. We also talk about if we could only collect and play one system per year, the failing Retro VGS IndieGoGo campaign, and of course the Cartridge Club game of the month. Eric was a great guest and I really look forward to having him on again in December.

Retro Fandango Eps. 23 - Live! and Off the Cuff

It's Retro Fandango, Live! Yes, we pulled it off! We streamed a Live episode of Retro Fandango to Twitch! Big thanks to JRock for helping us out with Twitter #RFLive, keeping up with the chat, and asking all of those trivia questions! And also a huge thanks for P2, for being our laugh track and staying through to the end of the episode! And one final thanks to all of those who joined us with a Skype call and kept the chat alive (you know who you are!) We couldn't get everyone onto the show but we did get as many as we could. The episode was great fun for us and it was cool to have people on we normally wouldn't be able to. I think we will do this again, for sure. I only made two edits to shorten the two breaks we took. Other than that, this is live and uncut!

Cartridge Club Ep. 24 - Super Mario Podshine

This game sucks. Don't even bother listening to us bitch about it's terrible level design, camera controls or mechanics. This was the worst decision the Cartridge Club has ever made. I personally blame P2. Even the amazing guests of Enzzy, Nintendo Doctor, Game Time with Kyle and Bill from STC couldn't save this stinker of a game. I am so sorry.

Sincerely,
P1

Retro Fandango Eps. 22 - Choo Choo: Mars vs P1 #Fireworks

I love these episodes.  Just a chat with friends.  While editing this one, I listened to myself at the beginning of the show and I am such a pill.  But our guests all have me in a smashing mood in no time!  Co-host Mr.Vox joins up a bit late and has to play catch up for the rest of the conversation since we touched on so many things!  Returning guest @Duke0619 from the YouTube channel Retro Nonsense shares his strict rules about finishing a game before starting another.  First timer @MrsQDawg from the MightyQDawg channel gives us insight into her favorite game and diving into the Disney Infinity franchise.  And P1 from @CartridgeBros has opened his mind to accepting other’s opinions and a new console!  Then we all wrap it up with a mini bitch session about the Cartridge Club game of the month, Super Mario Sunshine.  And we didn’t even start with a “Choo Choo” before complaining about it.

Retro Fandango Ep. 21 - The Wrath of Shaun…. and Kyle

It was inevitable. With both Mr. Vox and myself being Star Trek fans, we HAD to cover science fiction's best on the Fandango. Doing it ourselves would be impossible, so we got bonafide Trekkies (and  fellow CartridgeClub members), Kyle from GameTime With Kyle and the rockin' Shaun @NESromancer to help us out.  Since the franchise of Trek is so huge, we stuck to only the Khan/Genesis story arc that begun with the OST episode Space Seed and carried over into three films, Star Trek II, III, & IV.  Damn.  When you think of it, they were still feeling the effects of Khan well into the fourth movie. Crazy.  LLAP people!

Retro Fandango Eps. 20 - Shtickstarter


If there is a controversial topic in gaming, you can bet Retro Fandango will cover it.  For episode 20 we are joined by Dean from Round2Gaming (@Round_2_Gaming) and our very own Kimmy Gibbler, JRock the Game Rocker (@JRockGameRocker).  With games like Bloodstained, Shenmue 3, and Yooka-Laylee bringing in millions of dollars with promises and by pulling on your nostalgic heart strings; Kickstarter has us retro gamers taking a step back.  It is a great platform for developers to produce something they normally wouldn’t be able to, but when the consumer is putting money upfront it is also ripe for corruption.  And we ask the question “Where are we heading with this?”  Also, JRock has some Larping in his future, Dean plays with trolls, BuriedOnMars gets an Xbox One, and Mr. Vox hits reset on his YouTube channel.  We get some of our best stuff out of these laid back shows.

Retro Fandango Eps 19. - Eternal N.A.R.C.-ness

Do you like the Nintendo Entertainment System?  So do our three guests, Rip @mail_bag, Chris @CWR2, and John @NESpayne.  Separately they are three dudes who are close to each having their own complete collection of North American NES carts, but together they are the North American Retro Collective (or N.A.R.C. for short).  We grill these guys for over an hour with questions all about collecting.  Where to find games, personal motivations, and balancing it all with real life.  This all stems from Mr. Vox needing advice and direction on his collecting and the NARC team were the first people we thought of to help us out.  I'm still thrilled we were able to get these guys to spend some time with us on our little show.   After listening, if you havent already head over to podomatic and check out the NARC Podcast!  http://narcpodcast.podomatic.com/

Retro Fandango Ep. 18 - EN64-E3

The big gaming companies went all out for this E3 (well most did anyway) and so did we!  Hosts Ram Vox and BuriedOnMars talk about Shenmue, Final Fantasy VII, and The Last Guardian... wait... I thought E3 was supposed to be about NEW games?  But before all you retro fans out there decide to skip this one, guest and N64 fanatic @itsRocketSauce goes deep into the N64 library to pick out some of his favorite hidden games. Plus, we talk about some shows we're watching and the game of the month.  And, you Game of Thrones fans might want to stick until the end for a nod to the season 5 finally...  I might be in trouble after this...

Bill and Joe from the Start to Continue Podcast (@STCpod, @ACDecepticon) join in on the Fandango to discuss Game of Thrones, snacks, their favorite games, and what we've been playing.
