Anime: Ep 27 - Trigun

The boys are back in town. Full cast for this one. Hiki, Tori, and JD start off with some recent bad news (0-23). Tori had a great idea for a discussion regarding if the anime from 20 years ago, specifically from 1998, still hold up. (23-1:15). In 1998, many anime came out that stands the test of time, are well regarded, and are brimming with nostalgia.

Our wrestler spotlight for this episode is over the original Western women's revolutionary in Gail Kim (15-38). From there, it's a whole lot of the Indie wrestling you have come here for from Progress Ch 69, Stardom Gold Stars, NOAH, to Lucha Underground season 4 starting (38-1:32).

Retrocast: Ep 22 - Same Name, Different Game

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. What are our feelings over the modern take from good ole' Atari (25-52)? Last, comes our usual segment where we discuss games based on a picked theme. This time, the theme is over games having the same name yet are totally different from another. It's unique and was a ton of fun (52-end).
