It's been almost 3 years since the Super NES Classic Mini. Whatever happened to the Nintendo 64 Classic Mini that has been rumored? Is it still coming? In this episode we take a deep dive into emulation on the Nintendo 64 and my thoughts that the N64 Classic Mini won't be released.

The biggest DF Retro ever! In this massive documentary, John Linneman, Audi Sorlie and a range of special guests assess one of the Capcom's finest arcade achievements: the brilliant Final Fight. The origins of the game are discussed, the original coin-op is dissected and every single port and sequel comes under the microscope.

There was a Sim Tower 2? In all but name, yes! Let's take a look at Yoot Tower, aka The Tower II, developed by OPeNBooK9003 and published by Sega in 1998 for Macintosh and Windows PCs. Along with the Towerkit maps and other plugins from Japan!

Episode 284 - Sony's first portable system really tried to do things different. It seemed to focus more on giving players the premium home game experience on the go compared to having severely watered down ports and games. Let's take a look at the system and a bunch of its games!

The guys go to another arcade auction looking for some sweet juicy arcade deals. Will Jay be able to find another $10 dollar arcade cabinet?



1986, what a great year! So many industries were booming with amazing content. The movie industry put out a few movies that could make anyone cry! In the world of videos...well... *cough cough* The Legend Of Zelda. And with music we got some TOP music. Lets check out 1986! You will not be disappointed!

The metroidvania genre expanded greatly in 1987 as developers grew more confident in their design concepts and technology began to expand to accommodate their ambitions. Nintendo's Famicom/Disk System/NES platform proved to be especially fertile ground for innovation, as these three different takes on the format demonstrate. While you could arguably classify Zelda II, Rygar, and The Goonies II as action-RPGs, each one interprets that concept in unique ways. The one thing they have in common? They attempt to push the creative boundaries of the 2D platformer by shifting viewpoints and perspective at various times: Zelda II with an abstracted, Dragon Quest-inspired overworld view, Rygar with a Zelda II-style top-down action format, and The Goonies II with a first-person adventure mode.

Fancy over an hour looking at some of the greatest and most important arcades of the 90's? Here ya go. Virtua Fighter, Daytona USA, Sega Rally, House of the Dead, Virtua Cop and many more are here as we look at Sega's Model 1, 2 and 3 boards -- the 3D hardware that put them at the top of the arcade once again. Enjoy!

Ahhh, yes, the NES, a think of blocky curiosity. On the bottom of the NES is a rectangular insert, and behind that lies, well, an expansion slot. This video explores the NES expansion slot as well as some of the rumours surrounding it.

Episode 287 - Let's take a focused look at the PS Vita from Sony. This is the most modern gaming platform ever given it's very own episode on the show (so far) as there are still games officially being made for it! And for good reason, fans absolutely adore this machine!

Remember the classic Hexen from the 90s? Slipgate Ironworks brings the old formula back to life, modernised with the latest tech from Unreal Engine 4. John Linneman and Alex Battaglia are massive fans of the original - so does this spiritual successor hit the mark?

Yard sale & pawn shop pickups of NES carts, Nintendo DS & 3DS games, Playstation 4 titles, free PS3 games, & a New 3DS XL system.

With the future of frequent LGR Thrifts rather unknown at the moment, I decided to try this idea I've had for a while: electronic thrifting! Which is really just online shopping, ha. In particular, we're taking a look at the ShopGoodwill.com website, where stores from all around the country list things for auction. Let's go eThrifting!

With the 'Rona easing up in Texas the guys head to a small town for some game chasing at the flea market just like old times, and once again, Chris finds out how Game Chasing Go....

Episode 290 - Sega Ages is a line of games from Sega's past ported over to newer hardware. In this episode we;ll be taking a look at all of the games in the Sega Ages series on the Saturn. Of course most of these were only released in Japan.

Ninja Blade was the last game FromSoftware developed before their big hit Demon's Souls. This game is a mess, but it's a mess in some pretty entertaining ways that you'd never expect from the company these days.

Pickups from yard sales and pawn shops, classic Nintendo Wii games, boxed PS1 console, Zelda Wii U, games to trade in at GameStop.



It's music graces the end of nearly all my videos. Let's take a look at Batman for the Sega Genesis.

The year is 1989! What a great year for any fan of the past! So many amazing movies, video games and songs! This year may start to be looking a little more like the 90's as we are just ONE year away from diving into the whacky world of the 90s! Where were you in 1989? What did you like best fro this year?
