It's all prog rock, all the time! Giant art rock nerds Jeremy Parish, James Eldred, and Elliot Long gather together to hash out the art of progressive rock. From its roots in the ’60s to the best modern interpretations of the form, the only rule here is that each episode fills at least one full side of an LP and contains plenty of pretentious solos.
 
Welcome to Hair of the Dogcast, the interweb's premier bi-weekly podcast devoted to Craft Beer and Video Games (not necessarily in that order). Oh, and whatever else enters the conversation. Sometimes funny, sometimes ridiculous, but always entertaining, Hair of the Dogcast is hosted by a buncha cheeseheads straight outta Wisconsin: Josh Mueller, Tom Wegner, Brad Ward, and Dylan Hoff.

More arcade ports for SG-1000? Say it ain't so! These titles aren't especially well known in the U.S., since they've never seen a proper console release here (outside of maybe some collection that doesn't come immediately to mind), but both merit a close look. Taito's Chack'n Pop may not impress quite as much on the technical front as the more fami…
 
Jeremy Parish from the Retronauts joins Brad from the Dogcast to discuss Golgo 13 and the NES game Top Secret Episode.

This week's an overflowing cornucopia of Thanksgiving thrills and chills as Tom and Dylan are joined at the Dogcast table by special guest Joie Agliata of the Jump and Shoot podcast (@PodcastJump)! We discuss The Wall Street Journal's recent article regarding Activision Blizzard's beleaguered CEO Bobby Kotick and his alleged involvement in the nume…

Video Game conventions are amazing but looking through all of those vendors trying to find certain games for the right price can be overwhelming. Luckily, Caleb Ashton AKA Phoenix Resale stopped by the Dogcast and went over Game Hunting Trends, Tip, and Tricks to help you find the games you are looking for and the right price! Also, Dogcaster Josh …
 
This week brings us two SG-1000 releases that feel miles removed from the console's earliest days of serious-looking war game: Doki Doki Penguin Land and Drol. Rather than involving the relentless destruction of military vehicles (and, by extension, the squishy humans inside them), these two titles see you doing your best to protect children. While…
 
Beginning with this episode, I'm knuckling down to wrap up as much of the SG-1000 video series as possible by the end of 2021. There are only about half a dozen episodes to go after this! It's a pretty small library, but the best times are ahead of us. This episode looks at, technically, three arcade conversions: Zoom 909, Choplifter, and Pitfall I…
 
Halloween season is upon us, and you know what that means: Where other people decorate their homes with cobwebs and giant skeletons, I decorate mine with a Castlevania-related video. This time around, it's a look at a Castlevania spinoff called Kid Dracula. Well, technically, this video is about Akumajou Special: Boku Dracula-Kun! Or just Kid Dracu…
 
I may have gone a little overboard with this episode, but it seemed worth doing. For one thing, the creator of the Golgo 13 series, Takao Saito, recently passed away. And for another, upon revisiting this game in the context of its original release chronology on NES, I came away deeply impressed by how much the developers attempted to do here. Did …
 
We have a follow-up to a 1986 classic here, in deed if not in name: Life Force, the sequel to Konami's Gradius. Well, sort of. It's complicated. But since we never saw the actual Gradius II on NES, this will have to do. Life Force makes use of the same excellent power-up system as Gradius with some refinements, including a new weapon option, new ha…
 
Rhythm games are a facet of any arcade you go into. Everyone has played Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero, but their is a lot more to the history of this unique genre. Kip the Kilmeister joins the Raw Dogs onstage at Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee, WI to discuss the rapping dogs, plastic guitars, and virtual reality sabers. Contact us: Tw…
 
You know who John Riggs is. He stopped by the Bonus Stage at the Midwest Gaming Classic to discuss his YouTube Channel. How should you start a YouTube Channel? What makes a good thumbnail? Is eating 20 year old cereal healthy?! And how to find replacement marshmallows if you insist on it! This episode was recorded Live at Midwest Gaming Classic 202…

Video games were but the fevered dream of a madman when Charles Addams invented his creepy, kooky cartoon family 85 years ago, but in the futuristic year of 2021, Gomez and his clan of freaks have quite the collection of interactive adaptations under their belts—most of them designed to make children as miserable as Wednesday herself. On this episo…
 
This Movie Actually Exists. Somehow this happened. Bob Hoskins hated being Mario. The crew was miserable. There were something like 9 screenwriters. Strippers had to be removed from the final cut. Dennis Hopper is a germaphobe King Koopa who takes a mud bath. I love this movie. Contact us: Twitter: @HOTDogcast Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hai…
 
Having explored the legacies and games of the rest of the primary Super Mario franchise cast, Jeremy Parish, Bob Mackey, Henry Gilbert, and Stuart Gipp gather together to wrap it up by talking about, uhh, that one guy. The green one. Whatshisname. Edits by Greg Leahy; art by Amanda Pruitt. Retronauts is made possible by listener support through Pat…

Everyone agrees the original Diablo 2 is amazing, so let's talk about Diablo 3. Auction houses and a new team, this game was controversial on release. Always online DRM, for real!?! We also talk about the mobile game and Diablo 4 before we go into depth about some of the lore, and our two favorite characters Jere Harash and Uldyssian. This was prev…
 
Show regular Nadia Oxford power-ups to co-host status to challenge Jeremy Parish and Kurt Kalata to a battle of wits (or at least opinions) about the Castlevania series: Which games are best, which are worst, and why are our rankings objectively correct?

So without further ado: For the 100TH TIME, please enjoy four cheeseheads sitting around microphones and talking Beer and video games (and video games and beer).

When the plucky developer Wolf Team set out to make a Super Famicom RPG on a grand scale in the mid-90s, the resulting production nearly destroyed the group, but resulted in Tales of Phantasia. Now, nearly 26 years later, the Tales of series stands as one of the few b-tier RPG brands from the 90s that's still going strong with regular installments,…
 
This episode focuses on perception, especially vis-a-vis Bases Loaded. A certain demographic of NES owners LOVES Bases Loaded. However, in my experience, people who discovered the NES later (when better and better-looking baseball sims were available for the console) tend to find it lacking and shallow. And then there is the Japanese Famicom owner'…
 
Kingdom Hearts is a juggernaut. Donald Duck doesn't wear pants. Sephiroth and Winnie the Pooh are in the same game. The Raw Dogs are here for their 50th episode and we are discussing the entire Kingdom Hearts series at length. We discuss the behind the scenes process, the gameplay, and the evolution of the series. Thanks for joining us on this jour…
 
It feels like Famicom is kind of playing catch-up with SG-1000 this episode, as every game appearing here arrived on shelves in the wake of a Sega-published equivalent—either the exact same game (as in Space Invaders), one exploring the same root concept in different ways (Soccer), or a game with almost suspicious conceptual and mechanical similari…
 
The Dogcast always loves a party. And this week we celebrate the birthday of one of our absolute favorite games of all time: Dark Souls! Man, time sure flies when you're constantly preparing to die! From Software's masterpiece turned 10 years old this past week and couldn't help ourselves from participating in a bit of reminiscing and nostalgic gus…
