5/22/2022
You asked for it, and here it is: a brand new series, releasing on alternate weeks from the main episodes, effectively making RHP (finally) a weekly show! Since the new format centers around top 5 lists, we decided to dub it The Flight (beer aficionados will understand the connection). Long-time fans of the show may also realize this doubles as a callback to the early days of RHP. This week's Flight sees us discussing our personal list of 5 games we feel we put too much time into. There are...

Kirby’s Dream Land: 30 Years of Suck (ft. Adam Blank)

4/17/2022
Listen, the title isn’t necessarily a commentary on the game’s quality, just an objective statement that Kirby does in fact suck. A lot. It’s like his thing. At any rate, the illustrious Adam Blank of Remember the Game podcast joins us to celebrate three decades of pink puff power by reviewing the cartridge that started it all: Kirby’s Dream Land!

3/27/2022

2/20/2022
We are super stoked to have the one and only Joe Redifer of Game Sack and good friend of the show Paul from Region Free Gamers on to discuss Ys Book I & II, a tandem of JRPGs from Nihon Falcom that one might consider to be the grandpappies of the action RPG genre (and took the term "facerolling" quite literally). In an unexpected turn of events, this episode also serves as a cautionary tale about blindly trusting those fancy HD remasters that all the kids are into these days, so tune in to...
