Last year, I was quite impressed with how well The Retro Play Show did. It was an awesome little series I came up with and is what actually got me into the whole live-stream thing! Yet, since the series reached its end late last year, I have had quite a few people asking me when it was going to return. Frankly, I did not know the answer, but, having been inspired to make a teaser video (which will serve as the show’s new intro), I can firmly say it is coming very soon! Probably in February!
So, enjoy this teaser video and get ready for Series 2 of The Retro Play Show!
Oh, and don’t forget to follow me on Twitch!
Since I love to promote fan-made and indie games, I thought it was appropriate to focus on one for a First Look video!
“Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Final Attack” is a game I found late last year while browsing the YoYo Games sandbox and at the time it was listed as an “untitled fan-game.” But, since then, the game has been updated, given a title, and is set to be released sometime in 2014 by Delp Labs. It’s a very well-made fan-game, and this demo features all eight of the Robot Master stages along with six of the bosses available to battle. There are quite a few things that aren’t implemented yet (no Rush abilities and no weapons yet), but this is just a demo after all.
All in all, I think this video came out well. I think it showcases the game well and should be rather mellow and relaxing to watch.
This is it! The eighth and final part of our journey!
In this final installment in the Retro Play series on “Crusader of Centy,” we stubbornly continue to kill monsters despite the warning of God, yet we manage to figure out why monsters exist in the world and attempt to put a stop to it. The whole process is ultimately ironic with violence being frowned upon and yet we continue to destroy creatures we don’t understand in order to, hopefully, bring about peace.
Perhaps humanity is just too stubborn to ever learn!
This has been an awesome game for me to play and I hope all of you had a lot of fun watching it!

We are nearing the home stretch of the game here as Part VII gets underway with us heading back into the volcanic mountains. Here, we travel to the past in order to meet and defeat the Puppet Master and, after that, travel to the animal village near the beach to see a pivotal moment in its past.
Is Link going to learn from the past or continue to slaughter monsters despite God’s warning?
I guess we will find out in Part VIII, which will wrap up the saga!

Another retro double-header weekend!
Now that we understand that traveling to any area that the tornado is present in will bring you to an unspecified point in that location’s history, we follow the cyclone out into the Camellia Desert where we are able to visit the ancient civilization that Dorothy (Haha! Ok…Atlus was just silly with that name) mentioned previously. It seems we are meant to gain more insight into the past and why it is that humans have such prejudices, and yet we seem to learn little from our visit to Heaven because even now we find ourselves slaying monsters.
I guess humanity is just stubborn in the end!
Things are heating up as we work our way towards the game’s conclusion, so stay tuned and enjoy!

So, it seemed like it was God that had posed as the fortune teller at the beginning and cursed us by taking away our ability to speak to humans, but apparently the point was for us to learn about harmony between species rather than bringing more death into the world (and even the heavens!). Now, we must figure out what God wants for us to learn, and we begin by heading back to Iris, which is now covered in snow!
Our journey will now take us back into the past to various points in this world’s history, and maybe we will be able to set some things right after all!
These next couple of episodes are shorter than the previous ones because I am experimenting with lengths. So far, I personally prefer the longer episodes *shrugs*.
Stay tuned for future videos to find out!

Our Retro Play weekend double-header concludes as Link’s adventure continues as we explore the sunken depths of the temple and then make our way up the Tower of Babel and into the paradise above…Only, it doesn’t quite turn out to be the idyllic place you might hope for! Still, we meet God and he/she/it explains to us the reason for the sundering of the world’s languages and expresses disappointment in how humans have treated the other creatures – monsters and animal alike!
I also apologize for the audio being low in volume. I played with the settings in FRAPS and experimented with multichannel audio, but that produces seemingly more quiet audio for whatever reason. So, turn up your volume and fear not – this has been noted!
Yes, it’s another long video, so get your popcorn, settle in, and enjoy!
Oh, and be sure to check out my affiliates, Anjel Syndicate and Nerdy But Flirty! Thanks for hosting this there, guys!
Poor Link still cannot talk to animals yet, but he seems to have adjusted well to his ability to befriend animals to help him on his quest. Even if we aren’t sure what his quest is just yet! So, this time around, we actually win that race against the cheetah and use his abilities to get out of the forest, explore a maze-like desert, visit the famed Tower of Babel (almost an RPG cliche by now!), try the expert part of the training grounds, and visit a frozen castle on an island to the south.
Hopefully pretty soon we will be able to speak to humans again, although in this video we are even transformed into a monster temporarily, which provokes some thought as to whether monsters are evil or if the humans pursuing them are at fault.
This will be a weekend double-header, so stay tuned tomorrow for Part IV!

As we jump back into “Crusader of Centy,” Link’s adventure continues as he searches for the Fortuneteller that took away his ability to speak with humans. However, talking to animals and plants proves beneficial and we begin to assemble our party for our quest – a party full of animals! Fun times!
We make our way past the valley, find an animal village along the shoreline, save a penguin and learn to do some tricky jumping with the aid (and hindrance!) of the wind, journey through a treacherous volcano, and eventually find a cheetah to race! And we even get the second of the three medals we need to get the special sword from the king (not that it matters since, you know, we can’t talk to him or anything!).
This episode features a fun custom song written by Kate Lorimer (“K8-bit,” or @whatkatedoes) that she came up with to capture a fun, retro feel. She has other custom songs coming down the pipe, but I thought I’d include this sample here to let you guys hear it!
Please keep in mind that this video is being done by my site in association with Anjel Syndicate and Nerdy But Flirty, so be sure to check them out sometime too!
Enjoy, and do stay tuned for Part 3!
