It's that time of year again here at RF Generation, our annual PAIN YOURSELF WITH SUBMISSIONS CONTEST starts TOMORROW!  Officially starting at 12:00 a.m. server time tonight, our contest will run though the entire month of August. As all of you know, member submissions are what keeps this site going and ensures that we have the most up-to-date and best video game database out there. To commemorate our anniversary, we hold this annual contest to see who can "contribute" the most value to the site during the allotted period of time (*see official rules and description of contributions and points below).

So, here's how it works. From August 1st until August 31st, you make as many submissions as humanly possible. Our dedicated database staff will review the absurd amount of submissions, and at the end of it all, one of you gets a super sweet prize package, which includes your choice of $60 worth of gaming goodness. Essentially, you win a shopping spree (not to exceed $60 and items have to be game related) on GameGavel, eBay, or Amazon, and we pick up the tab. Of course, you'll also be the coolest kid in town as you strut around in your new, official RF Generation Ringer T-shirt!

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!

Posted under Playcast, Conkers, playthrough N64, April, 2018, Rare Replay, XBOX, XBox One


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.

According to the Playcast crew, they've knocked it out of the park with their January and February game picks this year. So, how did their March game fair?  In this month's Playcast, Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81) and returning guest, Retro Fandango's own, Kevin (BuriedOnMars) discuss the nostalgia driven, hack 'n slash brawler Transformers: Devastation, which appeared on various 7th and 8th generation consoles. Not only do the guys review the game, but they also discuss the impact the Transformers animated series and toy-line had on their adolescence, including a very special segment dedicated to Transformers: The Movie. Is this game worth playing, or is it merely an effort to loose our purse strings with G1 nostalgia? If you're a fan of Transformers, then you definitely will not want to miss this episode of the RF Generation Playcast! 

Our 50th episode is only two shows away and we want YOU 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.

Are the Playcast boys two for two in picking great titles this year?  Find out by listening to our discussion of our February 2018 playthrough,  Vandal Hearts, a tactical RPG on the original Sony Playstation.  In this month's Playcast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) spend time discussing the intricate gameplay that makes Vandal Hearts so special. The guys also attempt to hash out the game's complex story, and chew over the game's graphics and sounds. Is this "cult classic" worthy of making its home in your PS1 library? Did Rich possibly purchase his greatest score of all time? And what the H, E, double hockey sticks is a "waifu?" You won't want to miss this episode of the RF Generation Playcast!

Posted under Playcast, Oxenfree, playthrough, January, 2018, PC, PS4, Limited Run


It's a new year and with that comes New Year's resolutions.  In January, the Playcast Crew resolved to play Night School Studio's indie darling, Oxenfree.  In this month's Playcast join hosts, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) as they discuss the game's story, its mechanics, the music and sound, and get super philosophically deep into the game's overarching question: "If you could go back and change a decision in your life, would you?".  In this episode, the guys also discuss their gaming related New Year's resolutions, their thoughts on Nintendo's latest creation, Nintendo Labo, and their current literary consuming endeavors.  How does Oxenfree compare to other freedom of choice titles like those developed by Telltale Games?  What's in the game's title?  And what "weird" hang-up does Rich have when it comes to playing remakes? The answer to these questions and many more in this month's episode of the RF Generation Playcast. You won't want to miss it! 

Some of you may have noticed that this episode has arrived a bit earlier than usual.  The reason is because our good friend and site member, Kevin (Buried_on_Mars), who some of you may know from the show or follow his podcast Retro Fandango, is doing a 48 hour Twitch charity fundraiser this weekend.  Shawn and I discuss the fundraiser on the show and we wanted to make sure to get the word out to our listeners in time, since the broadcast is this weekend.  Please be sure to listen to this portion of the show and to learn more about Kevin's goal, please check out the following link: https://buriedonmars.word...ream-on-february-10-11th/
