Racketboy Podcast #14 – Retroware TV
It’s no secret that retro gamers have many options when it comes to viewing web videos devoted to classic games. Especially in the last few years, gamers have been able to find reviews for a wide variety of games for almost every system ever made. This episode of the podcast focuses on one of the biggest and best names in retro-gaming videos: Retroware TV
Lance Cortez, co-founder of Retroware TV
Over the past four years Retroware TV has grown from a small website featuring a monthly show on classic games to become a major hub for retro-related videos. In this episode, Lance Cortez, co-founder of the site, talks about the site’s origins, how and why it has grown over the years, and what he hopes to see in the future. Lance also mulls over the potential for classic gaming related shows on TV, gives tips about video production, and shares his thoughts about running a retro gaming site.
