The summer of 1990 brought about the end of Back to the Future with Part III, which traded the frantic, high-concept time travel adventures of the second movie for a more grounded finale rooted in the Old West. Though it's gained a bit of a reputation as a lackluster final act to an otherwise stellar series, Part III remains a satisfying conclusion that picks up many of the more emotional beats Part II left behind. On this episode, join Bob Mackey, Jeremy Parish, Henry Gilbert, and Dave Rudden as the crew discusses the concluding chapter of the trilogy and the many mostly bad Back to the Future games we haven't discussed so far. So listen in, and we'll see you in the future! (Specifically, next week.) Retronauts is a completely fan-funded operation.

It's finally happened: a game once covered as a new release by this very podcast is now officially retro! And that game is Sam & Max Save the World, the 2006-2007 episodic release that brought about the grand return of Sam and Max 13 years after their original video game outing. Now, 15 more years have passed, and while Telltale has since dissolved, former members of the company scooped up the rights and released a spiffy new remastered version. On this episode of Retronauts, join host Bob Mackey as he grills Skunkape Games' Jake Rodkin and Dan Connors about the rabbit and dog duo's newly refurbished adventures.

Jeremy Parish, Bob Mackey, and Adam Pawlus turn back the hands of time 20 years to the dawn of the GBA, Nintendo's tiny portable powerhouse. The soaring highs! The eye-straining lows! The many, many hardware iterations and Super NES ports!
The Retronauts East crew concludes their journey through the Indiana Jones films with a look back at the final entry in the saga: 1989's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Plus the games! (Except the LucasArt game, which deserves its own episode.)
Jeremy Parish, Kurt Kalata, Kevin Bunch, and John Hurst put on their red slippers and punch arcade machines to pay tribute to the game that launched the most important fighting series ever: 1987's Street Fighter. And, for some reason, Street Fighter 2010.
Certain conditions have made time mostly meaningless, so it may shock and alarm you that 2001 happened 20 years ago. Yes, it's true. And while it was a monumental year in terms of events that shook the world, 2001 was also home to huge, industry-changing games, console launches, and so many other delightfully dated gaming moments worth remembering. This week, join Bob Mackey, Jeremy Parish, Henry Gilbert, and Axe of the Blood God's Kat Bailey as the crew jumps back to an era where they were shockingly all adults.

The 2nd one is better?!!?! "It seems like it had a bigger budget"?? I'm only 20 minutes into this podcast and there's so many bad takes. My wife and I just rewatched the 2nd, and it was horrible. Felt like a direct to DVD movie.

While I realize the Retronauts gang can't possibly know everything about all videogames their collective gaps really show in this episode. Even with the preshow research done it's sorely lacking in facts and info related to the games they're covering.

I currently get both YouTube Premium and Google Music for $5 month. To think one podcast is the same value as both those services is ridiculous. I would happily pay $2, but $5 is too much.

Hollow Knight is sooooo much harder than this game. I melted every boss all the way to the end. You are doing something wrong, because you can cheese through these bosses extremely easy compared to something like Hollow Knight which demands pure mechanical skill.

There are so many inaccuracies in this one that it is really hard to listen to.

Ray Barnholt's schtick is essentially pretending to not give a shit about recording a podcast interlaced by being triggered when other people get information wrong that he himself could've just said right in the first place.
