Future’s Past

• July 26th, 2017

This week Fred and Jam handle a slew of listener comments followed by the first part of the discussion on backward compatibility.  New consoles playing old games seems like a no-brainer that should be in every console, but over the course of history it was never consistent by any manufacturer.  Our duo compare the consoles that were backward compatible and how useful the function was in their own past.

Geralt of Rivia

• July 19th, 2017

There are plenty of RPGs in the world and there are plenty of worlds in the high fantasy genre, but few are as robust and diverse as The Witcher series.  Jam had to miss this week, but Fortengard takes his place to discuss not just the games, but the world of The Witcher and specifically its protagonist Geralt.  Discussions are had on the origins, influences, characters, and of course video games that all stem from a home base in Poland.

Top 10 Super NES Games

• July 6th, 2017

After months of people begging us to finally do it, the announcement of the SNES Classic Edition was the final straw.  We can't very well let Nintendo be more punctual than we are.  Fred, Jam, and guest Andy get together to debate the top 10 SNES games in a very tough debate of games that takes almost 3 hours.  In the end, 10 final contestants are chosen and ranked.

GHX Ep. 12: Just Having Fun

• July 4th, 2017

This week it's just Fred and Trees as they ring in American independence.  Listener mail sees a lot of Nintendo Switch talk (and Fred just found one in the wild), but for the most part it's all about having fun playing the games of summer.

Groovy!

• June 28th, 2017

This week is the first part of our series on video game mascots.  Whether or not you feel games are made for kids, there's no denying that in the 80s and 90s the key to marketing to kids was with mascots, and video games used a ton of them.  In this first part Fred and Jam take the bigger companies that have a series of mascots and talk about their effectiveness and the games attached to them.

GHX Ep. 11: What Did You Play?

• June 19th, 2017

The biggest split between those that attend E3 and those that watch coverage online is the show itself.  Aside from this year, E3 usually ends on Monday when all the press conferences happen and the big announcements stop.  For those that attend the show it's the exact opposite with most missing the press conferences due to lack of invite or decent Internet, but you'll be able to play many of the games thanks to the show floor proper.  In this "returning from E3" episode, Fred and Jam are joined by guests Andy (42 Level One, Agents of Shieldcast) and Chip (The B-Team Podcast, Agents of Shieldcast, Knuckleballer Radio) to discuss the games Fred actually played at E3.  There's plenty of discussion to be had and lots of insight on the games we'll be seeing in late 2017/early 2018.  Note: This episode has no audio anomalies and a sound quality on par with what you have come to expect from our podcasts.

E3 2017: Press Conference Impressions Update

• June 18th, 2017

We decided to take down the Press Conference Impressions episodes from the main feed as they were not reflective of quality you've come to expect from GH101.  We did keep them archived, however, and they can be found at: http://gaminghistory101.com/e3-2017-bad

Please be sure to catch our better E3 2017 recordings as they are what you've come to expect from the show.  Cheers.
