Remember The Game? Retro Gaming Podcast

Adam Blank

Comedian Adam Blank hosts "Remember The Game?", a retro gaming podcast. Each week, Adam and his guest will select a video game that they grew up playing, and spend time reminiscing about what they loved (or hated) about it. Not intended to be a history lesson, "Remember The Game?" is more like a conversation you'd overhear on the playground as a kid. The discussions are all over the place, and are guaranteed to fill you with that warm, nostalgic feeling. (Or rage, like you felt with the underwater level in the original Ninja Turtles game). Either way, it's gonna be fun! New episodes every Wednesday! read less

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame And you can find Mike's wheelings and dealings over at: linktr.ee/miketheref I've slowly been checking out all the movies from the 80's and 90's that I missed growing up, and this week we're talking about quite possibly the worst AND the best of the bunch in Street Fighter: The Movie. From the horrendous acting (aside from Raul Julia as M. Bison), to the stupid character backstories, I love EVERYTHING about this movie. A classic "it's so bad it's good" flick, and honestly one of my favourite "old" movies I've watched since I started down this cinematic road. My guest this week is our resident fighting game junkie, Mike The Ref. I asked him to explain to a noob like me if any of this is actually canon to the Street Fighter universe, and we had a great time laughing the good (Bison), the bad (Guile), and the ugly (Ken) that was Street Fighter: The Movie. And before we fight in the streets, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks me what the last game on the planet is that I would review on this show. Would I ever consider reviewing games that were never ported to America? And what do I like about being Canadian? Plus we play a rare round of 'WATCH One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 crappy gaming movies: Tekken, Double Dragon, and Mortal Kombat. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame And you can find Andrew's Twitch hiking over at: https://www.twitch.tv/bucklox27 Little Nemo: The Dream Master is unquestionably the single most requested game in RTG history, albeit by 2 people. It's a charming little NES platformer where you feed animals candy until they pass out, and then you wear their skin. Seriously. If it sounds kinda messed up, well, it is. But it's also a really fun, kinda tough NES game, and it's made by Capcom, so it has to be decent at worst. I remember seeing it in magazines as a kid, and renting it a couple times. I used to think it was too hard, but playing it now I find it most beatable (that final level is pretty rough). Getting to play as the various animals is cool, and hey, who doesn't love poisonous candy? My guest this week is the man that has been on me to cover this game for 5+ years, long-time hot dog, Awright/Andrew. I asked him why he loves this game so much, and we ranked the various animal costumes, went through all the levels, and made fun of how fucked up the premise of the game is. This was a good time. And before we feed animals candy, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks me for Steam Deck recommendations. What's a good game for someone to try tactical RPGs with? And how often do people make bad puns with my last name?? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 lesser-known Capcom NES games: Strider, Code Name: Viper, and Bionic Commando. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame A milestone episode calls for a milestone game, and for my stone's money there's no game as big as The Last of Us. Without any exaggeration, I can safely say this is one of my 3 favourite games of all-time. The story is unlike anything I've ever played before. Frankly, it's better than practically every show or movie I've ever watched, too. And then add in incredible acting, awesome gameplay, and one of the most endearing characters in the history of media, and you've got yourself something special. And that ending?? Forget about it! My guest this week is an institution here at RTG Industries, my bosom chum, Mark McCue. We spent an hour and a half praising the hell out of this game, going over the story and characters, and I think we did a damned OK job of explaining why The Last of Us is just so freaking special. And before we look for the Fireflies, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks me what retro gaming podcasts I listen to. How do I deal with haters online? And why the HELL am I not playing Metal Gear Solid Delta?? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of the highest rated PS3 games on Metacritic: Metal Gear Solid 4, Killzone 2, and Infamous 2. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

This week, we're talking Twisted Metal:Black, which is the best game in one of the coolest franchises in the history of gaming. I fell in love with the Twisted Metal series on the original PlayStation, so when I saw a next-gen version of the series on PS2, I couldn't resist. And they didn't just live up to my expectations, they blew 'em out of the water. The graphics and combat were rock solid, and the morbid, dark, twisted backstories of each character (those cutscenes!) were insane. I hate that this series seems to be dead on the vine, but you can always (and should always) go back to Twisted Metal: Black for car combat perfection. My guest this week was the guy that broke down the OG Twisted Metal games with me a few years ago, my pal Andre. And we both agreed that this game stands up as not only the best Twisted Metal, but one of the best games in the PlayStation 2's legendary library. And before we twist metal, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks straight up, what means more to me: retro gaming or modern gaming? We're covering The Last of Us for episode 300 next week, what version should you play to get ready for it? And have I ever tried to repair a console myself? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 car combat games: Vigilante 8, WWE Crush Hour, and Carmageddon. Learn more about your ad choices.

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame And you can find David and his podcast 'Quantum Kickflip' at: www.quantumkickflip.com Twitter: @quantumkickflip Instagram: @quantumkickflip I love The Simpsons. And I can look passed the flaws in their video games most of the time because of that love. But Bart vs The World is the suckiest bunch of video game suck that ever sucked. It has the DNA of my beloved Bart vs The Space Mutants in it, with the crappy jump mechanics, awful hit boxes, and boring levels. But it adds a bunch of lame mini games that take up like 60% of your play-time, and leaves you wishing you were playing in the deepend of the sandbox with Ralph Wiggum instead. My buddy David Rae makes his return to the show this week, and unlike most of his episodes that involve talking about great NES games, this one brought us both down as deep as Timmy O'Toole in that damned well. And before we "vs the world", I deliver another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone hits me with a play one/remake one/erase one based on games featured on The Simpsons cartoon. What Pokemon would I want to have in real life? And what's a better name: Sega Genesis, or Sega Mega Drive? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Simpsons NES games: Krusty's Fun House, Batman Meets Radioactive Man, and Bart vs The Space Mutants. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Subscriptions start at just $3/month, and 5% of our patreon income every month will be donated to our 24 hour Extra-Life charity stream at the end of the year! Patreon.com/RememberTheGame I'm still new to the Sega Genesis universe, so every game I play is exciting because it has potential to become one of my favourites right out of the gate. And that's exactly what X-Men 2: Clone Wars did. This game is awesome. It's a classic 16-bit beat 'em up, and you play as a bunch of the X-Men (and Magneto). What's awesome is that each character has strengths and weaknesses, and they all play differently. So not only does that open the door to a little strategy talk, but it gives you a bunch of replayability as well. And believe me, you'd be replaying this game anyway, because it's pretty damned tough. The Cyclops to my Gambit, my buddy Chris, is my guest this week. He's a card-carrying Sega kid and he gave me a call to sing this game's praises. The graphics, the gameplay, the characters; all praise worthy. (We do crap on the camera a little bit). And before we join the X-Men l, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks why 2023 was such a banner year for video games. Have we found a definitive answer for what's considered "retro"? And where do I stand on the WarioWare series? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too!

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame Viewtiful Joe took down 63 games in our 2024 Pre-March Madness tournament, and I'm so stoked that it did. It's one of the coolest games I've ever played, even if I can't finish it because I'm constantly rage-quitting. If you've never played it, it's a side-scrolling beat em 'up, but with the extra hook of superpowers. You can slow everything down, speed everything up, and zoom the camera in while doing it. Those abilities makes the combat infinitely more fun, and you use them to solve puzzles too. Oh, and the game is tough. Really fucking tough. Normally I'd toss my controller away at some point and give up, but the addictive combat just keeps me coming back for one more try. Viewtiful Keegs gave me a call (literally, he's on vacation so we had to do this one over the phone) to talk about what makes this game so cool. Seriously, it's really fucking cool. We also got into how we both suck at it, and then we slapped some Hall of Fame worthy scores on top to wrap everything up. And before we get Viewtiful, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks if I ever watched my parents play games back in the day. Are there any niche games my brother and I grew up playing? And did I play Tiger handhelds as a kid? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Capcom Gamecube games: MegaMan X: Command Mission, Killer 7, and Resident Evil 0. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame And you can check out Bradley's Twitch streams at: Twitch.tv/VideoGameOdyssey It's one of our world-renowned 'revisited' episodes this week, and we're taking another look at the game I consider to be the best looking, and possibly best playing, in the entire Game Boy library; The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. If you didn't grow up in this era, I could see how you might write Awakening off. The inventory system is a pain in the ass, it's easy to get lost, and compared to something like Link to the Past, it might seem a little basic. But for those of us that were obsessed with the SNES Zelda in the mid 90's, having a competent portable adaption like this to keep us busy on the road was mind blowing. To this day, Link's Awakening is a contender for my top 5 Zelda games. I can't talk Zelda on this show without a McCue brother popping up, and Bradley gave me a call this week to talk about our adventures trying to wakeup a fish in a bird egg with weird self playing instruments so we don't have to dream anymore. Trust me, it'll make sense soon. And before we Awaken, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks if someone will be hosting a show like this about modern games in 20 years? Would I ever consider waiving my PC bias and playing the original Fallout? And should I judge people's game rooms? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 old school Zelda's: The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventures of Link, and the Oracle games. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

You can browse the entire catalog by searching for 'Remember The Game? Industries' on Spotify now!   We all had those games we rented over & over when we were kids, and for me and my bro, Spy vs Spy was one of them. It's one of the best PvP experiences on the NES, and I'm ready to help some of you learn how to play it! (Seriously!) It's split-screen multiplayer, where you play as the Spies of MAD Magazine fame. You run around a maze of rooms collecting items you need to win the game while planting boobytraps in an attempt to stop your opponent from doing the same. It could be pretty confusing without a manual, but I genuinely think the game has an awesome concept, and I'm ready to show it a l'il love on my l'il podcast. I'm rolling solo this week, but I have so much nostalgia for this show that I had no problem wasting an hour of time talking into a microphone. Let me waste an hour of your time, too.   And before we blow shit up, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro!   This week, someone asks who I'd love to have on the show if could.

And y'know what? It's delightful! I have a couple minor gripes, and I thought the early part of the game was slower than I am, but for the most part it was a lot of fun. The Djinn system is superb, the graphics are sexy, it sounds great. Honestly, one of the best handheld RPGs I've ever laid my eye(s) on. My buddy Keegs swung by the show this week to talk about lifting stuff, freezing stuff, and basically just psynergying all over the place. We spoil the game, too, so be warned.   And before we psynergize, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro!   This week, someone asks me what my stance on pre-orders is, and if I've ever been burned by one. Am I stoked for the upcoming TMNT: The Last Ronin movie?? And what game did I see in magazines as a kid, but never got a chance to play??   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too!

It's tough, frustrating to play (at times), gorgeous to look at, and a game so many 90's kids grew up with. Oh yeah, and it makes me crazy. I love tough retro games, but this one hits different. the frustrating controls and hit & miss collision detection makes it more frustrating than fun at times. That said, when it's clicking, it's a great little game. And it genuinely might be one of the best looking and sounding 16-bit games I've ever laid my eye(s) on. My guest this week was the guy that I yelled at during the Ecco the Dolphin episode, my buddy, Andre. I decided to fire up The Lion King while we were talking again this week, and it spilled over into an Angry Adam appearance. I hope you like swears! And before we wait to be king, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks me what 5 people I would add to Smash Bros if I could.

I haven't played a bad Star Wars game yet, and Super Star Wars is probably a top 3 for me at this point. I love this game! It scratches every itch I have. It's an SNES game. It's fun. It's tough as balls. It plays great. Aside form that damned Sandcrawler, I don't know if I have a single complaint! Just don't expect me to talk about the last third of the game, because I can't get that far...

Maniac Mansion was probably my go-to (even though it scared the hell out of me)! I know I'm not the only one that was scared of it either. You control a bunch of high school kids and set out to save a kidnapped girlfriend from a creepy mansion. The game revolves around solving puzzles and utilizing each kid's unique skill set. It's incredible creative, pretty damned funny, and almost impossible for a feeble brain like mine. My buddy Daniel grew up horsing around in mansions as well, and he gives me a call this week to talk about one of the most iconic retro PC games ever made. We had a great time laughing about how tough some of these puzzles were, and dunking on Jeff because the poor guy is as useless as I am. And before we put stuff in microwaves, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone talks about discovering the greatness that is the GBA. A listener corners me over something I said back on RTG #157. And is PS Plus Premium worth it?? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 point and click classics: Sam & Max Hit The Road, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and The Secret of Monkey Island. Learn more about your ad choices.
