Ready Player Me!

We all remember our first time.  The excitement of a new experience, the electricity in the air, your palms are all sweaty, your family gathered around watching…. wait, what?  I’m talking about the first time you played a video game in your home.  What were you thinking, you sicko?  I would like to let you guys know about an exciting new podcast called, “The Retro Gamers.”  Your hosts Larry and Anthony transport you back to a simpler time when the most exciting thing in your life wasn’t an Ipad or Kindle but an Italian plumber, a barrel throwing Monkey, lots of kidnapped princesses and even a Hedgehog.  Anthony and Larry take you back in time without a DeLorean and discuss everything from the Atari 2600 to the Dreamcast and everything in between.  They have extensive knowledge of everything dealing with Game Consoles of Yore.  Sit back, put in your earbuds and relive your youth.

In the latest episode, I was fortunate enough to stand in as a guest host, filling in for Anthony who happened to be out of the country.  Larry and I discuss the Ducktales games of the NES system and some other Disney games, we also discuss the joys of marriage and gaming and introducing the younger generation to the games their Dads and Uncles used to and still play.  You can download the podcast on Itunes.
