Getting slightly out of our "retro" comfort zone, we pay our respects to one of Nintendo's dominant handhelds; the Game Boy Advance. Discussion includes games such as Astro Boy: Omega Factor, Metroid: Zero Mission, Drill Dozer and more, all while trying to figure out what the definition of "shovelware" really is.

Our fearless trio wonders if the third time is indeed the charm by looking at "Three-quels", aka the third entry in video game franchises. Covered are games such as Super Metroid, Streets of Rage 3, Tekken 3 & more. We also belatedly crown our best retro games of 2016 and 2017, and question whether a toddler gorilla can be a worthy hero.

We top off 2017 by looking at some modern video games made in the retro style. With games such as Axiom Verge, Shovel Knight, and Sonic Mania, it seems old-school gaming is alive and well. We also give our thoughts on the RetroUSB AVS, an NES FPGA clone system, and Jon finally gets to gush about some indie PC games.

Unable to resist the urge to continue playing games & podcasting, the crew takes time to appreciate some exquisite art by experiencing some beautiful 2D games. With masterpieces such as Kirby's Adventure, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, and Garou: Mark of the Wolves there's no shortage of eye candy. We also make some major breakthroughs as Jon confesses to actually liking a fighting game, and Jeff slips into denial about liking side-scrolling platformers.

From the darkest depths of the RGS archives comes our first ever recording along with some content that got left on the cutting room floor. Featuring our pilot/test episode, it's followed up with some outtakes that were cut out of previous recordings. Not for the faint of heart, this episode is rough, unpolished, and crude, but does help illustrate that practice makes perfect, and that laughter is the best medicine.

Celebrating our 4th anniversary and final podcast, we indulge ourselves by playing whatever games we please, such as Ninja Gaiden Shadow, Operation Logic Bomb, and Tempest 2000. We also take time to reminisce about our humble beginnings, hear what some of our colleagues had to say about us, and express our gratitude to you, our listeners. Without you, there would no Retro Game Squad and no hot butter through knife. Thank you.
