Ep. 129: Retro Games and Mounties

Games, games, games. Yes, video games. We come back to this topic in our "Retro Roundtable" this week because it's one of the most impactful nostalgic genres out there. I don't think we would be who we are today without these time sucking babysitters. None of these "Next Gen" machines wouldn't be here if it wasn't for these trail blazers. It also seems that retro games are starting to make a comeback. Our guest this week, Scott Schmidt, is a huge retro game junkie. He gave us a little info on their comeback and also a little tip that right now probably isn't the best time to try and start collecting. If you do, really do some homework so you don't drop your life savings on that one game you loved back then.

If Scott sounds a little familiar, he joined us on the show a while back talking about the comic series he writes Hank Steiner: Monster Detective". Well, he is back at it again with his other series "Steele Vs.". Currently running on Kickstarter until June 20th, 2016. A quick rundown of the series is:

"Steeped in Canadian myth and legend, soaked in frontier action, Steele Vs is an adventure/horror comic following North-west Mounted officer, Sam Steele as he polices the harsh and mysterious Yukon Territory."
