Death is Certain on Retronauts Micro

Death is Certain on Retronauts Micro

On this week's installment of USgamer's classic gaming podcast, the gang talks about their game-related bucket lists.

The biggest bummer about being a video game superfan? Our mortal lives don't provide nearly enough hours to fully explore this time-sucking form of entertainment.

Think about it: In the time it takes to play, say, a 60-hour RPG, you could easily watch 25 of the world's greatest movies, or plow your way through eight of the best books ever written. Yet we video game fans must remain selective and turn our backs on worthwhile experiences, if only because society expects us to eat, sleep, bathe, and interact with loved ones. And this episode of Retronauts Micro is devoted to exactly this topic: the game-related goals we still need to meet in order to slide out of existence without regret.

Seeing as this is a 15-minute off-week episode, stretching out this introduction any longer would be more than a little excessive—and cut into even more of our limited time on this planet—but please feel free post your own video game bucket lists below. Together we can lament the fact that we're obligated to get off the couch and do stuff on a daily basis.

Joining us on this one is Henry Gilbert, who hosts the Cape Crisis comic book podcast, Dave Rudden, who hosts the Cheap Popcast professional wrestling podcast, and our old friend Ray Barnholt. As always, you can keep up with the latest Retronauts news via our Twitter and Facebook accounts, and check out some of our video content over on our YouTube page. And, in case you forgot, Retronauts is fully funded by our Patreon campaign, so if you can afford to donate even a dollar a month, please consider it! Every little bit really helps our cause.
