This week, we run down what's coming out (or not) in 2020. In George's Retro Corner, we meet the man, the myth, the legend... Wakka. Who doesn't love a good game of Blitzball, am I right?  Outro music - The Story So Far (Live from R40) by Rush Theme song by David Cassel

The 2019 Golden Gizmos
It's the best of 2019, at least among the games we played! We don't have endless free time, y'know. George had to play all the Aero the Acro-Bats, and I had a lot of Star Track to watch.

The 2019 Golden Gremmies
We celebrate the worst the year had to offer, and boy, there were some stinkers.  Next week, we'll have the Golden Gizmos, which will be a far less miserable affair.

Slice 19 [Snatcher (Sega CD)]
This week, we discuss a game about a cop pervert or something. Where the hell does George find these things? I'm starting to suspect these aren't real games and I'm being taken for a ride.

Slice 10 [Aero the Acro-Bat / Aero the Acro-Bat 2]
https://www.gentlegiantsdogfood.com/ is the website for Burt Ward's dog food. Please note: it is not nearly as fucked up as it used to be. At the top are links to other pages, and previously, all of that content was on one giant, endlessly scrolling page. It was magical. You can see one version of this via the Wayback Machine, if you want to wait 8 hours for the page to load: https://web.archive.org/web/20170425022358/https://www.gentlegiantsdogfood.com/ oh and we talked about Aero the Acro-Bat I guess. That's not important though

Slice 8 [Keio Flying Squadron / Popful Mail (Sega CD)]
Playing these games got us put on a government watchlist, and it was NOT worth it. Want to tell us that these pervert games are better than we think they are? Email us at americanretropie@gmail.com and there's a 99% chance we'll read it on-air, assuming you don't write anything legally actionable. Actually, even if you did, we'd probably read it, we don't care.

Slice 007 [GoldenEye 007 (N64)]
This week, Larry talked about Star Track. Want to yell at us about how we're wrong about video games? Email americanretropie@gmail.com and we'll probably read it on-air, even if it's about how we're a couple of shit-ass turd bags! I mean, that's not wrong.

Slice 4 [Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, and 3]
This week, we decide to tackle these mainstays, these titans of the industry, these games that have had so many words written and typed and spoken about them that there's nothing we could possibly add to the conversation at large. So we take, uh... A different route.
