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!
Episode 29 of the 240p Club takes us to the world of user-created levels and content for your favorite video games past and present. If you've ever downloaded a user-designed Quake level or even made your own course in Excitebike, we cover it.
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!
The 240p Club is finally back! On this edition of our podcast, we revisit the beat-'em-up genre of games and dig through the huge pile of awesome titles to pick our staff's Top 10 of all time! After much debate, some badass kung fu, and a visit to Metro City, we finally narrowed it down to 10 series that had a lasting impact on us over the years. These are our Top 10 Beat 'Em Ups of the 240p era.
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?"
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!
In honor of the Blue Bomber's upcoming 30th birthday, as well as our upcoming charity stream Mega Man for Mega Paws, we dedicate our latest podcast to one of our favorite game series ever. Tune in for all things Mega Man, Mega Man X, and yes, we do even mention Mega Man Soccer. No password required.
We published our first podcast exactly one year ago today! On this special edition of the 240p Club, Metallic Joe, Nikki Tuonela, and Lord Kuddy go behind the scenes and talk about our most memorable moments, streams, and podcasts, answer some fan-submitted questions about us, and chat about our upcoming Mega Man for Mega PAWS event happening August 6th and Noon EST. Also Nikki hits us for the 431,782th time
