Last month, we joined our friends from the Cartridge Club in a dual site playthrough of Journey on the PS3 and PS4.  In this episode of the RF Generation Playcast, hosts Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81), brothers P1 and P2 (Cartridge Club), and Jake from the Polykill podcast as we discuss this short, but deeply moving effort from thatgamecompany. In this episode, we discuss the game's mechanics (or lack therefore), the story, the game's use of color and music, and what effect our individual playthroughs had on us.  What peculiar organ did Rich believe he was tracking towards?  How did Shawn's second playthrough compare to his original from years ago? Why would Ghandi have loved playing this game? And out of the five of us, who has the biggest scarf? The answers to these questions and many more in this month's episode of the RF Generation Playcast. You won't want to miss it!

Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81), as the "Dynamic Duo" (R.I.P. Adam West) discuss one of Ninja Theory's early, third-person, action/adventure titles, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. This month's Playcast flashes forward (...errr we kinda hope not) into dystopian America where humans are being "enslaved" by a mysterious source and our world has been taken over by blood-thirsty robots. Yeeeeeesh!  In this episode, we talk about the gameplay mechanics, some "despicable" and yummy characters, the game's soundtrack, and pose our thoughts on Enslaved's ending. Did this game's sometimes glitchy tendencies muck up what could have been a great title? Did Rich's modern game skill shortcomings prevent him from finishing the game? And how does Shawn reeeeeeeeeally feel about "Hidden Gems?" The answers to these questions and many more in this month's episode of the RF Generation Playcast!

Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81), and long time RF Generation member and front page contributor, Addicted, as they discuss a popular, point-and-click PC title from 2002, Syberia. This month's Playcast travels through Old World, European communities inhabited by humans and marvelous, mechanical, masterpieces called automatons. In this month's podcast, we take an in-depth look at Syberia's fantastic narrative, beautiful, steampunk art style, and its stripped down game mechanics. This title has received praise from point-and-click enthusiasts, but how does it set on the palates of our fine, gaming connoisseurs? Did this game's messages find their way into the hearts and minds of our participants, or are they simply muddled due to other shortcomings? And can the boys ever figure out how to line up a call correctly? The answers to these questions and many more in this month's episode of the RF Generation Playcast!

Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81), and YouTuber, RF Generation and Cartridge Club member, and co-host of the Retro Fandango podcast, Kevin (BuriedOnMars) as they discuss a big league developer's title that has a very indie look and feel. This month's Playcast ventures into a magnificent, limbo-like world of fantasy where a young lady struggles to get back to the world of the living and save her dying father. In this month's podcast, we take an in-depth look at Ubisoft's Child of Light. This title has received overwhelming praise from reviewers, but is it a meal fit for our finicky co-hosts' palates? What mechanics make the gameplay of this super, compact RPG so distinct? And even though they all scream, does anyone actually get any ice cream? The answers to these questions and many more in this episode of the RF Generation Playcast!

Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81), and former Playcast co-host Steven (Disposed Hero) as they discuss one of the most well-known and genre-defining PC titles of the last 20 years. This month's Playcast crawls deep into the bowels of Hell to seek out and destroy it's formidable caretaker during March's site playthrough discussion of Diablo. One of Blizzard's first entries that helped establish the famed developer, Diablo thrilled fans of action/adventure RPGs during it's time.  But, how does this game hold up after 20 years, and will this retro pick impress some of our more modern gaming centric hosts? How do the PC and PS1 versions compare, and which should you play? And does The Butcher still make us s#%t our pants just as he did in days of yore? The answers to these questions and many more in this episode of the RF Generation Playcast!

Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81), and returning guest, Pam (host of Cannot Be Tamed and Media Mavens) as they discuss a lesser known title from a well-known developer.  This month's Playcast plunges into Febrauray's site playthrough of Murdered: Soul Suspect, which was developed by Square Enix.  Opinions of this game typically range from both ends of the spectrum, so how will our cast of gamers fall on it?  Is it worth the few bucks a used copy commands, or are you better off leaving it on the shelf?  Did Rich enjoy the overall narrative?  Did Pam take issue with the combat?  And did Shawn enjoy making little cat sounds?  Be sure to tune in to this episode of the RF Generation Playcast to find out!

Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) as they discuss one of the most beloved RPGs on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Secret of Mana. Join these playthrough gurus as they review their maiden voyages through the game and try to determine what makes classic gamers dote upon it so. Topics discussed include: the general story, the revolutionary menu system, upgrades, general enemy and boss battles, and of course, the musical score. Having recently played both of Square's "Secret" SNES titles, Rich takes a few minutes to discuss the verbal war that often rages between Secret of Mana and Secret of Evermore fans and whether or not either argument holds water. Which game is better, and would either of our hosts recommend this particular title?  Be sure to listen to this episode of the RF Generation Playcast to find out!
