For the past several years, The Portland Retro Gaming Expo (PRGE) has been growing and attracting retro gamers from all over the country. This year, it has taken a huge leap taking over an entire hall of the Oregon Convention Center and several presentation rooms. A Jumps B Shoots attended and met up with fellow ‘The Punk Effect‘ alum Roo from 16 bit Gems.

While at the PRGE, Matt interviewed Garry Kitchen- programmer of Keystone Kapers, Donkey Kong for the 2600 and co-programmer of A Boy and his Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia as well as David Crane- co-founder of Activision. Rich also makes his hosting debut when he talks with Roo from 16-Bit Gems about Plok, repro SNES carts, and how Roo goes about making his show.

Episode 3 – House of A Thousand Tangents

On this episode, an awry Whatcha Playin’ segment breaks from its holding cell and takes over the whole podcast. This leads to an exploration on why Half-Life and Half-Life 2 are modern classics, followed by an in-depth discussion (and review) of Dead Space 2, at which point the conversation splinters off into ruminations on the state of the survival horror genre in general. We close the episode with our on-going wishlist picks for overlooked  games that deserve releases on Virtual Console, Xbox Live Arcade, and the Playstation Network.
