In our second Saturday Morning Retro podcast, we have returning guest Matt Adler on the show. Dan, Dave and Matt talk about how they’re all coping during the pandemic and what they’ve been playing. Also on this month in history, Sonic the Hedgehog launched in North America.
Our games on the block – Amazing Spider-Man 2 (WiiU), Theatrythym Final Fantasy: Curtain Call (3DS), Jet Set Radio (DC), Super Ghouls and Ghosts (SNES) and Golden Sun (GBA).
We start off our show with our weekend filled with retro pick-ups. Then we have a story related to last week’s show, online bullying. Polygon reached out to 25 developers about their online abuse policies for their employees, we discuss. Also in the news, more rumors pointing to Nintendo’s new NX console being portable with a home dock, 8BitDo makes a bluetooth receiver for Super Nintendo which allows tons of controllers to be used with it, and No Man’s Sky developer Hello Games gets accused of stealing a Dutch developers “Superformula” code to build the game worlds.
It’s finally here, the battle of the gaming century, we debate which system is better; Genesis or Super Nintendo. Also, we discuss the lacking omission of single player content in Street Fighter V, the D.I.C.E. awards winners, and more.
