133 - RetroAchievements with Meleu

133 - RetroAchievements with Meleu

In the distant year of 2013, I had the pleasure of interviewing Scott Davies, a programmer, SEGA fan, and the creator of RetroAchievements, a project that intended to add achievements to old games. This week, I'm joined on The SEGA Lounge by Meleu, a staffer over at RetroAchievements. We talk about the site's inception, Meleu's work with the RA community and what's in store for the future. Do you love collecting trophies or achievements in modern games? Ever wished you could get achievements in your favorite retro games? Keep listening to find out how you can make that happen thanks to RetroAchievements.

Many thanks to Meleu for coming on the show. If you use emulators to play retro games, I urge you to check out RetroAchievements.org, create an account there and connect it to your emulator. And feel free to share the best or hardest to get RetroAchievements that you collected with me on Twitter. I'd love to see them! If you want to see what it's like to get some RetroAchievements, stop by my Twitch channel some time and you can see that AND my poor gaming skills in action.

I'd like to tell you about something special going on at RadioSEGA - RadioSEGA being our family here at The SEGA Lounge. Every year, RadioSEGA organizes the Fan Choice Awards, which include both Song and Remix of the Year. The process of choosing Song of the Year has two steps. Nomination and Voting. The former calls upon the listeners and the SEGA community in general to nominate 5 songs from the list of SEGA games that were released in the previous 12 months. And the nomination period is currently underway. You can find more info and the full list of eligible games at http://radiose.ga/fanchoice2020. You can nominate your favorite songs until early December at which point, the 10 most nominated tracks will be part of the final Song of the Year 2020 poll.
