RetroforceGO! Podcast Archive

This was the REASON I started listening to podcasts in the first place, and I was very sad to see it go. I’m constantly hearing about people not being able to find the archive of the shows … even though 30 seconds on Google turned up a torrent. So I’ve spent a large amount of time uploading them all right here for you people to easily download. To the best of my knowledge, this is every single episode of RetroforceGO! and is a great listen for anyone who is into retro gaming. The credit goes to whoever originally put up the torrent (which I will have a link to for those who want to take advantage of it) and this particular text file was in it :


Episodes 1-43 and 45-75 provided by craineum of Destructiod forums.
Episodes Zero, 44 and 76-87 provided by odber of Destructoid forums
Episodes 88-100 provided by Destructoid website.
Initial torrent provided by craineum.
Repacked and reissued by Butternine.

If you're downloading this you probably already know what the show's about :)

Special thanks to odber and craineum for providing the majority of episodes and for making this possible.  Thanks!


So yeah, hit the jump for the downloads, there are (technically) over a hundred episodes here and the total size is around 10GB … so bear that in mind. And don’t hesitate to leave a comment about the show, or if there are any dead links and the like (I’m adding these the old fashioned way, so there may be some typos here and there that I will fix as I because aware of them). Just please remember, this is not MY show, I’m merely a fan. :)

*UPDATE* I forgot to add the link to episode 100, so it's there now.
*UPDATE Part 2* For some reason, the episode 59 that was in the torrent wasn't complete. I uploaded the full episode. Thanks to "ptepid" for the link.


What podcasts do you listen to or watch?

Fairly recently, I think maybe sometime in November of 2008, I finally got on the bandwagon and got a 5th generation 30GB iPod, mostly from dong the math with the usual cheapie MP3 players I usually got and determined that this was the better deal compared to the little 1 and 2GB players. Anyway, when I got it, I already had a ton of music to stick on it which was fine. But I started looking around on the iTunes Music Store for other stuff to listen to, and being that I'm a cheap/poor bastard I immediately started getting sucked into podcasts. Being that I deliver papers during the night, I'm in the car for about 3 to 3 and a half hours a night, so I have lots of time to listen to them.


Podcast Review - RetrofoceGo!

The reason I'm writing this because out of all the podcasts I listen to, this is by far my favorite. I didn't even get an iPod until fairly recently, like, under 6 months. I got a 30GB 5th generation iPod. When I downloaded iTunes, I'd HEARD of podcasts, but I didn't really know what they were. I downloaded a few and listened to them, then I started searching for ones about subjects that I cared about, hoping to find something. And I came across RetroforceGo! one night, and have actually gone through and listened to almost every single back episode because, with the exception of one, I love all the content.

Hosted by the constantly upbeat and positive Chad Concelmo, the quiet, monotone SHMUP master Topher Cantler, the beautiful and outspoken Colette Bennett who, unfotunately, has to play all those god awful horrible WiiWare games ... Anthony Birch who in the early days of the podcast had this awesome rant he did about whatever was pissing him off that week. Now he does a gamer dictionary for the show, which I don't think is anywhere near as good. Although it is still pretty funny to hear what people manage to come up with. Dyson, who is the overall host of the show most of the time. And finally a fan of the show who sent the hosts gifts just out of being a fan has become a regular on the show ... who is quite possibly one of t few people I wouldn't challenge to a match in any fighting game. They've had a few guest people on such as the British foulmouth Jim Sterling, who ... personally is my favorite. He manages to keep that thin line of being extremely foul mouthed (almost as bad as me) and is still able to word things very well, which is important for a writer and podcaster.
