In this week’s episode, we discuss retro franchises vs retro style games and debate if this is a fade. We also celebrate Matt’s birthday and we welcome the new member of the podcast, Finn!

At the 2:16 minute mark the crew introduces Finn to our listeners. Finn is Matt’s new dog, The question is, will Jake and Finn be able to get along or will this be the end of the podcast?

At the 7:14 minute mark of the podcast, Jake talks about his “cool and unique” finds he picked up at Walmart. And what a collection! Metriod: Other M and Kirby Epic Yarn just to name a few.

At the 11:30 minute mark, Matt discusses his indie game project, There Are 200. He discusses the thought process of adding items into a game and the psychology of thinking like a gamer.

At the 16:45 minute mark of the podcast, we also discuss your gaming news in our segment “The Gamerheads News Flash”. We discuss that Miitomo has been cancelled, Mario Kart on the mobile device, Anthem being delayed, Google looking into doing a video game streaming service, Jake’s take on Xbox Game Pass, Far Cry 5 and the Season Pass, and our new network that we belong to called Cross Play Compatible!

At the 41:43 minute mark we discuss our hot topic, if making new games of an existing franchise is a fade. We discuss Sonic Forces, Mega Man 11, and the difference between these games and games like Iconoclasts and Celeste, which are made to look like a retro style game, but use modern day mechanics.
