Episode 50 - Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure

It's hard to believe that our 50th episode is finally HERE! This month Shawn (GrayGhost81) and Rich (singlebanana) take a stroll down memory lane to discuss some special moments over the last 50 episodes and take some time to thank their former co-hosts and special guests. What follows is a discussion of the cutesy, PS1 RPG known as Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. How did the guys take to the game's simple gameplay? Was the story interesting enough to keep their attention? And would Shawn's cuddly recommendation ultimately win Rich over? The answer to these questions and may more in this episode of the RF Generation Playcast. Be sure to stick around for our blooper reel at the end.

A special thanks to our playthrough participants and listeners for all of the love and support over the years. We would have never made it this far without you!

Episode 49 - Conker’s Bad Fur Day

Our fourth game of 2018, was the true definition of a "cult classic." In this month's Playcast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) discuss that notoriously bawdy, foul-mouthed, platforming, red squirrel as they breakdown Conker's Bad Fur Day. Known more in collector circles for its high price, adult content, potty humor, and movie references, the guys ultimately put its gameplay to the test. Is this early 3-D platformer satisfying, or does it ignite controller chucking frustrations in the boys? Which version of the game (N64, Xbox [Live & Reloaded], or Xbox One [Rare Replay Collection]) do the guys recommend most? And does the price of this game justify picking up a copy or throwing your current copy up for sale while the market is high? The answer to these questions and may more in this @#$%& episode of the RF Generation Playcast. Don't miss it!

Our 50th episode is NEXT and we want our listeners to send us an audio roast! Congrats, well wishes, and cheap shots are all welcome. Audio should be limited to under 2 minutes, so if you're interested, please contact singlebanana to find out how to send in your piece. The submission deadline is June 1st.
