Retromazing!

I cannot count the number of times I have searched the tags "Retro" and "RPG" on the iTunes podcast directory. So, when I discovered this specific podcast, I was overjoyed, yet cautious. I noticed that there have only been 11 episodes so far and with the tendancy of many gaming podcasts to cease functioning with little or no explantion as to why, I didn't want to get too attached. However, after listening to the latest episode I could tell that this is a great podcast with loads of potential. I even liked it enough to go back and listen to all the previous episodes as well. Good things! - The hosts are hilarious and the chemistry between them is great. The show has a feel VERY similar to "Dave and Joel's Fast Karate for the Gentleman" (Awesome podcast) and the hosts have a great chemistry. I love the way they always seem to get into arguements about minor stuff, haha. You can tell that they're really good friends and it makes for good listening. They also play through the entire game that they are discussing so they always have a lot to talk about and they're not just going off of what they remember of the game. There's music from the game they're covering spliced into parts of the show and I like that as well. These guys generally seem to know what they're talking about as well. By that I mean, they know quite a bit about retro RPGs. Not so good things... - The podcast is still pretty new and it shows a bit at different times. Also, it only updates bi-weekly because it takes the hosts a long time to play through the game (these are RPGs after all). However, from what I can tell, there have been many times when the podcast has been really late. I'm a pretty new listener so I can't say for sure though. Also, sometimes it seemed as if they just started discussing what happens in the game which can get pretty boring. Lately they've been talking more about their personal experiences though, which is always more entertaining. In my opinion, the format could possibly use some work, but it's not bad by any means. Either way, this podcast is great, not perfect, but still really good. If you're a fan of retro games, RPGs, or anything in between you should definitely check out this podcast. It's not all that professional or anything, but who cares!? It's funny and it has a lot of personality. Keep it up guys!

A solid pocast for nostalgic gamers

My golden age of gaming was in the early 1990s. I fondly remember The SNES RPG era. I was looking for a podcast that could help me relive some of those great memories. Luckily, I found it.

The three hosts certainly put in the work. Drudging completely through retro RPGs is no small feat. It's nice that they play or replay these games immediately before discussing them. Each game gets about two or three episodes dedicated to it. On each episode, the hosts discuss their experiences with the game so far--right up until the game's completion.

Every player has a different experience when playing old school RPGs; that relationship between the screen and the player is a pretty personal experience. It's fun hearing each host's different perspective on these games; that's really what makes the show.

The hosts have a nice rapport with each other. Their chemistry keeps things humorous and light hearted. They aren't afraid to go off topic, which I feel is a benefit to the listener. The show is informative, but doesn't get stale or repetitive.

If you enjoyed classic RPGs (particularly during the SNES era) than I recommend giving the show a shot.

A Little Long

I enjoy listening to this podcast because it's one of the only places to get your RPG fix, but I find that it is a little too long and detailed for me.
