It's our second birthday!

 

To celebrate being around another year, we again pull back the curtains and go behind the scenes, talk about our favorite moments, and special guest Phil talks...um, something weird about the N64 controller. We laugh, we get a little emotional, and most of all we vow to do this another year! Happy Birthday to us!

Picture this: you have access to a time machine that lets you live through a particular summer night from your youth. Since we're a gaming podcast and not anything existential, we're only going to moments in time where we were playing games with some of the people we love, setting the mood by describing the time and place. Today we've fired up the wayback machine and head to a few particular Saturday nights during summer in the 1990s. Pizza or Chinese food, a TV tray in front of the TV, your SNES controller in hand, annoyed house guests, and a beachfront arcade. So grab your favorite youthful delights and listen to us recreate some awesome gaming memories.

Welcome back! On this newest edition, the 240p Club Podcast tackles swatting on the first part of our latest podcast, covers a wide variety of controllers released for the various systems of yesteryear, and finishes off with a roundup of retro-gaming related releases for the next gen systems. And remember N64 affectionados, direct all N64 controller love to Metallic Joe and his hatred for that system's first-party controller.

Metallic Joe, Nikki, and Ray are back for episode 31! Today we discuss portable technology and how it's taken over our lives and caused people to lose focus on even things right in front of them. We're also covering the Game Masters exhibit at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. We look back to 2016 and remastering our first podcast for YouTube (as well as recoding Podcast 6), say "Happy 25th" to the original Breath of Fire game for SNES, and end up on Nikki's adventures in the Fire Emblem series. Just remember, don't play Game Boy and drive at the same time!

On our special hour and a half 30th podcast, we turn the clock back 30 years here at the 240p Club to glam rock, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and of course the year in Nintendo releases. We go down the list in alphabetical order and discuss each North American release for the NES in 1988. Some classic releases, some that may have been better off unreleased, nothing is off limits on this list. So turn the clock back with us and listen in!

Also we dig into Atari record keeping and more specifically the legitamacy of some of the older records on the heels of the scandal involving Todd Rogers.

Finally...don't eat Detergent Pods!

Podcast 27: What If?

It's been a while since we've published a new podcast! Real life obligations, etc. However, we finally were able to get together and record another podcast. The topic tonight is "What If?" in video gaming, speculating what would have happened had certain events in video gaming happened differently. For example, "What if the NES did indeed get marketed in the US by Atari?", "What if the Nintendo Playstation came out", and our favorite "What is Genesis actually didn't what Nintendon't?"

Podcast 26: Arcade Experiences

On this edition of the 240p Club we tackle our arcade experiences in the 90s and early 2000s, including experiences with fighting games and debunking the myth that arcades were only awesome in the early 80s. We also dive head first into the Street Fighter 2 experience, ironically enough near the 30th anniversary of the Street Fighter series. Also new for a retro podcast: We actually defend millennials. How? Tune in and find out!

On this latest edition of the 240p Club, Nikki, Metallic Joe, and Ray follow up our Mega Man for Mega Paws event with a talk about a few of the newest "retro styled" releases including Sonic Mania and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2. We also talk Gaming Tournaments both retro and modern and how they used to relate to the arcade experience back in the day (in a small way our modern online gaming is this generation's arcade). Also please don't hit an arcade machine because you lose. They have feelings, too!
