Apologies for the delays on this one, but a couple of weeks ago Dave and John sat down to chat about what a new player in the console market would have to do to succeed, their thoughts on next year's Together Retro calendar, the fate of the Neo Geo X, sandbox games, and the perils of Skype video recording.

Games discussed in some detail:
Dead Space 3
Final Fantasy XIV (and much of the rest of the series)
Dragon Quest series
Grand Theft Auto series

Thanks as always to AppleQueso for the great production work!

Well having your username and password both as long black bars was probably a bad move anyway.

Besides, that's already the name of a band.

Hey guys, I've been listening to more of these lately whilst I'm at work, and they're fairly enjoyable.

I've noticed though that there isn't actually much retro gaming talk happening. It seems a little odd considering we're on a retro site. I think the issue is that the segments are very focused on whats going on right now.

The games you're playing are often newer releases, the games you've picked up are often recent releases and even stuff like the news for the retro gamer is focused on stuff thats just been revealed. This is all great, but it kinda shifts some of the retro focus away.


Maybe you could do a section each podcast where you talk about a retro favourite of yours in some depth? Highlight a game people can play and get a little more retro-themed content in there at the same time.


Anyhow, just my suggestion. Thanks for the great work guys.

oh I meant to comment - the mixing sounded really good on this one. Don't know if John got a new mic or Apple just really cleaned everything up, but it sounded really even. And I liked the brevity of the what-I've-been-playing/what-I've-recently-bought segment. Good show, guys.
