Sore Thumbs Podcast: Classic games revisited

We talky talk about the retro games. The sore thumbs podcast! Join Ash Holmes and Nick McNamara as they entertain you through their experiences in gamings history.

Episode #12: Grim Fandango


Ash and Nick make their way into the Ninth Underworld as we take a look at LucasArts/Double Fine Productions PC adventure classic, Grim Fandango.

We discuss the game amongst other random video game-ness and stuff. Such as the failed Retro VGS indiegogo/kickstarter campaign and controvers. Has retro game collecting hit a ceiling? Is it fun anymore? Is it worth moving onto other systems? The video game voice over strike rumours, EA's recent Star Wars Battlefront beta. And we talk about the final planning of our marathon run! Nerves are kicking in!
