Retrocast: Ep 32 - The Strange and the Weird

Such an oddball. Yep, we got our intro including Kevin talking about his experience with Psychonauts (0-14). Lots of industry news occurred in between casts and not the good kind with the likes of Activision and Bungie being more greedy than ever (14-43). 

November is an odd month and to go along with it being in between scary and festive, the theme chose for this cast of games that come across as strange or weird. Join us as we wander through some strange art, weird characters, and downright odd games (43-end).

Kevin likes Sleeping Dogs and Colin got a bunch of PS4 games at Anime North (0-15). From there, JD asks his fellow hosts about what they think of the recent 'demake' in Bloodstained Curse of the Moon (15-25). Our main discussion from there is over the newly launched IndieGoGo for the Atari VCS.

After the usual 'what have you been playing (0-14) the usual guys of the retrogaming game get hyped for the upcoming E3 2018 with a segment called "justify your console." We made a list of 10 must have games for each of the three major consoles out today (14-55). Afterwards, we discuss some of Nintendo Switch Online and the new Neo Geo mini console coming out (55-1:20). Finally, the theme of the episode brings us to discuss a number of games based on car/vehicular combat. If the car has weapons or is primarily used as a weapon we picked games based on this and found out if some were good or some were bad (1:21-end).
