Back to the Future (Backward Compatibility Part 2)
5 days ago
This week Jam and Fred are joined by Austin to discuss the more recent implementations of backward compatibility. From the software-based 360 to the pure hardware based Wii and of course the Playstation 3 falling somewhere in between. Then the group move on to this generation and the myriad of adapters that attempted to force back compat on consoles that were never designed for it.
Break 1: Big Blue from F-Zero (SNES)
Break 2: The Boy's Got Wings from Ys III: Wanderers From Ys (TG-CD)
Break 3: Splash Wave from Outrun (Arcade)
Closing: Main Theme from Odin Sphere (PS2)

Know your roots, SON!
Fred and his random ensemble of gaming nerds go DEEP on the history of gaming, retro games, the classics, the firsts, and sometimes even marketing. Always a fun listen. If you don't know where to start, I am a big fan of "Big Boss Man", Twas The Night Before Xmas Part 2 (I'm on that episode lol), and anything SEGA/Sonic. Genesis DOES! GH101 does it too (whatever "it" is)!
