Retronauts Episode 79: 10 Shitty Years of Virtual Console

Chris Kohler joins Jeremy and Bob to revisit a topic from the earliest days of Retronauts: Virtual Console. Boy, what a difference 10 years makes! Remember when we were optimistic about that? Also includes some NES Classic Edition spitballing or whatever.

    Great episode, as always.

    As for the future of Virtual Console, I also hope that it’s a unified platform like Xbox Live, where Nintendo remembers what you purchased from previous platforms. Also though, with Nintendo officially going third-party and putting out games on mobile devices, I hope there’s a future for VC on mobile phones and perhaps even, one day, the PC.

    Long time listener, first time commenter.

    How much do I need to pay in Patreon to get you guys to tell Kohler to dial it back a little on this subject? I just can’t relate to that level of hostility.

    Maybe he was just winking and smiling a bunch during the recording and it doesn’t come across on audio. But damn. I had a headache by the end of the episode.

    Still looking forward to next week!

    Although comments are closed on the Preserving Game Ephemera episode, as a longtime listener and fan, I wanted to pop in and leave a comment that the quality and interesting aspect of that episode inspired me to donate a slightly larger amt per month. You’re doing great work and continue to be one of my favorite podcasts. Thanks for the great work.
