S4E9 - Ep 076: Battlin' Like a Boss (with 8BitGlitch79)

We offer tribute to all the memorable boss battles of video game history! Bowser, Robotnik and so many more!

We welcome our buddy Shaun (8BitGlitch79) back to the show to talk about one of the most memorable aspects of any video game, the BOSSES!!

Whether they're in charge of a single stage or are the final challenge waiting at the end, these characters are sure to make an impact. We'll tackle the more iconic "last guys" first, spotlighting iconic final bosses who come back again and again over multiple entries of a given series. Later on, we each choose 3 (possibly more obscure) battles that were really memorable to us personally.

Thrown in the middle is a musical interlude of an OCTOPONDER, where we'll play your favorite boss battle theme! Overall, this is an episode that video game fans won't want to miss!

S4E8 - Ep 075: Board Game Movie Pitch Session (with The Slumgullion)

With the help of Jeff and Scott from the Slumgullion podcast, we deliver pitches for fake movies based on real board games! Hey, it worked for Clue.

Call this episode a palate cleanser!

As big fans of the film version of CLUE, we thought it would be fun to come up with our own movie pitches for films based on classic board games. For this very special episode of Retro Ridoctopus, our pals Jeff Holland and Scott Clevenger (from the Slumgullion podcast) stopped by to help out. We play classic commercials for each game and really got into the theme!

Our Retroids really came out in force this week to weigh in on the main theme, calling out a ton of board games they would love to see on the big screen for this week's OCTOPONDER THIS! And finally, Nintenjoe takes us home with his first ever UNCOMFORTABLE NATURE FACT!

On Twitter, be sure to follow Jeff @TheSlumgullion and Scott @Scottclevenger AND... you can and should listen to The Slumgullion anywhere you listen to our show and check out their website!
