S4E21 - Ep 088: The Nintendo GameCube Turns 21

Over two decades ago, Nintendo released a great gaming console called the GameCube and by gum, we're gonna talk about it!

Jammed in between the incredibly popular N64 and Wii consoles, Nintendo released a really great system with a tons of exclusive games that unfortunately made a much smaller splash. We are here to celebrate the GameCube just before it's 21st birthday! Nintenjoe will lead the discussion and cover the technical stuff before we start presenting some of our favorite games!

Later on, we'll read the results of our Octoponder This poll to see what our Retroid's favorite series that started on the GameCube is. And finally, 8-Bit Alchemy will take us home with an unexpected DIE MONSTER (that you will now be expecting).

Let's A-Go!!

S4E20 - Ep 087: Glow In The Dark Toys (& How They Work)

What do Bracelets, Action Figures, T-Shirts, and Slime have in common? They could all GLOW IN THE DARK!

Lots of toys came in GLOW IN THE DARK varieties, but do you know how they worked? For this episode, we drop a little history and pinch of science of your butts all to answer the question... how do glow in the dark things work?

And before you can say SCARE GLOW, we swing things around to our normal format and each present a handful of phosphorescent fun we remember from when we were kids. Tack on some incredible answers to this week's OCTOPONDER THIS question and a POWER TO THE METAL segment and you got yourself a whole steaming episode of the Retro Ridoctopus cephalopodcast!

Gearing up for Halloween, we talk about 6 films that are purported to be CURSED!

S4E18 - Ep 085: Cheat Day!

Because no player can be good ALL the time, we've gathered a slew of gaming's most infamous codes and hidden cheats!

For this episode, Nintenjoe leads us on a journey to dust off some classic video game cheats! We split the discussion in to imputable codes (button sequences you have to press at a certain time) and typable cheats (secrets accessible only by password or by inputting a certain name for your quest). We cover some great ones!

Later on, we'll tackle this week's OCTOPONDER THIS question as well as get another edition of 8-Bit Alchemy's COMPOSE YO'SELF, which does NOT go as planned!

S4E17 - Ep 084: Free Toy Inside!

Remember when breakfast cereals came with prizes right in the box? We sure do!

This episode is definitely part of a balanced breakfast.

Ignoring the dirty looks from mom, this week, we jam our grubby mitts into some cereal boxes to pull out the free toy packed inside! Remember those Wacky Wall Walkers? How about the Nabisco Spoonmen? Listen as we chronicle some of the weirdest and most memorable free prizes from the 50s to the mid aughts!

Later on, we'll tackle this week's Octoponder This and hear which cereal mascot our Retroids think would take the belt in a massive Royal Rumble style battle royal. And Nintenjoe takes us home with another band you need to check out in Power To The Metal!!

S4E16 - Ep 083: Playing Cards and Building Decks (with Dani)

An old friend and professional poker dealer helps us spotlight card games of all suites and sizes!

When we decided to do an episode on card games, we immediately thought of our good friend Dani! She was a professional casino dealer for over 12 years and possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of not just Magic The Gathering but just about any card game you could mention.

So roll up your sleeves and prep those poker faces, because we cover everything from Go Fish and Solitaire to Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh!

S4E15 - Ep 082: Themes From A Memory 4 (Anime Edition)

It's time again for Nintenjoe to lead us into a bunch of blocks of theme songs! This time, it's all anime!

It's music time again, folks!

Nintenjoe's popular recurring Themes From a Memory is BACK. This time, the mission was to choose cartoon shows from the land of the rising sun, Japan! That's right, we play some killer theme songs from anime old and new, some in English, some in Japanese. As always, we hope you'll have plenty to be nostalgic about while finding one or two new things you'll want to check out!

Also lurking in this episode, we announce the three winners to our 900 Retroids Facebook contest. Let's throw some tentacles in the air for Eric Michaud, Russ Lyman and Mary Hart!
