Today is the 25th anniversary of the North American launch of the Sega Genesis. As such, the Summer of Sega moves on to discuss the Genesis launch and Streets of Rage.
It’s On the Stick Live! We were supposed to play Battleblock Theater for the stream, but it crashed on Mike’s computer. Instead, Eric spent an hour playing Spelunky while we talked of all things Shovel Knightly. Also discussed are Super Time Force, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Hearthstone, Final Fantasy XIV and, of course, Dark Souls.

Yes, I know it’s June now, but we’re going to consider this the May episode of SNDG, and you’ll have another episode by the end of the month. I’m looking at Image Fight for the PC Engine and NES this time!
This week, On the Stick: Rock Band DLC, PAX East 2014, Nidhogg, Towerfall, Samurai Gunn, Spelunky, Thief 4, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, AND MORE! The Album of the Week is Daniel Lanois’s Acadie.
Yes, Scroll Magazine and Retronauts’ own Ray Barnholt joins us once again to discuss the penultimate issue of Scroll Magazine. It covers the history of WARP, so this podcast, naturally, does the same. Fittingly, the album of the week is Michael Nyman’s minimalist score to Enemy Zero.

In this episode, Eric, Kurt and super rad guest Alexis Long recap and discuss the first two episodes of The Wolf Among Us. We spoil the shit out of the game and Fables, the comic that game is based on, so maybe don’t listen if you worry about that kind of stuff.
