Why Super Metroid Is A Classic feat. Dan (Retro Logic) | Episode 196

With Metroid Dread coming this Fall, it’s time for TRG to take a look at some of the Metroid series. We’re kicking things off with the game that is a classic loved by all (unless you have no heart and soul), Super Metroid.

Episode 234 – God of War RagnaROKED The Reformed Gamers

God of War Ragnarok is a meaty game. To help us discuss the themes, we brought on friend and Patron of the show: Nate McKeever (Backlog Breakdown). Before we get into the show, the preshow sees us discussing the recent news surrounding Xbox's layoffs and wondering just what is going on over there. The show proper sees us hinting at future content (including a new podcast) along with discussing the theme of obsession and parenthood as it relates to the characters in God of War Ragnarok. Buckle up. This is a long but rock solid episode.
