Marc Matt and John are back again talking about the latest in retrogaming. We are surprised by a new Wonder Boy game - Monster Boy. John gets into a bunch of Super Nintendo and N64 games, and Matt gets lost in the world of Tetris.

I’m outraged that across these last 2 podcasts (recorded on the same night) that Marc, when the opportunity to talk about recent gaming arose in both episodes, actually said: I’ve done none apart from my speed running. There was something I asked him whether he at least mentioned on the podcasts and was told no because of lack of time and opportunity and now I find there was opportunity in both podcasts!

On the very afternoon of the podcast recordings Marc and I played an inaugural battle of Star Trek: Attack Wing at the Annandale Hotel which went rather well and seemed well received. I will describe it at length on a different thread. 

Hrumph!

Outraged I tells ya!

I do understand your disappointment Mark, all jokes aside. I just felt I wouldn’t have been able to talk about it for the length of time that it deserved. 1. Because you’ll note at the end of the podcast I had to get out of there because my ride was waiting. And B. I was so exhausted I wouldn’t have been able to articulate properly and do the game justice.

Ill be sure to talk about it next recording (or maybe the one after, as we have a holiday season cast planned for next). But the executive summary is that it was probably the most fun I’ve had playing a board game, ever! Absolutely loved it.

My outrage was fairly minimal. 😏
i just figured that with the explicit question about recent gaming being raised, it might have got a casual mention (“speed running & a tabletop game I’ll discuss at a later date”), rather than the wilful deception of the poor listeners by a lie through omission. 😉

Besides, it drew out written confirmation of what I remembered of your postgame assessment... 😁
