150 - Russ of Retro Game Corps

150 - Russ of Retro Game Corps

This week, The SEGA Lounge reaches 150 episodes! Thank you very much for your continued support. Join KC as he sits down with Russ, the man behind the blog and YouTube channel Retro Game Corps, and learn more about his background as a gamer and where his love for retrogaming and handhelds comes from.


Welcome back to The SEGA Lounge! Believe it or not, this is episode 150! While I'm not doing anything special to celebrate, it's just mind-blowing to me the idea that we've reached this milestone. And it's the show's 7th anniversary next month. How time flies! None of this would be possible without the listeners so thank you very much to all of you who keep listening to every episode of the show.

A quick note about our recent line of merch you can find at thesegalounge.com/store. Thanks to comments from some of you, I've decided to move our products to a different online store and we are now at Teespring, or Spring, how they are now called. This means a few things:

1. Shipping to EU countries is less expensive for you guys;

2. I'm able to make more products, like long sleeve tees and hoodies, which are now available, and in more colors than before; and...

3. All prices have been slightly adjusted and everything should now be a bit less expensive than last week.

So if you haven't yet, feel free to visit thesegalounge.com/store or click the store button at the top of this page. It's a way to support the podcast while at the same time looking cool.

This week, I'm joined by Russ Crandall, the man behind the recent but quite popular blog and YouTube channel Retro Game Corps. Back in December, when I was taking a break from the show, I decided to pick up one of those Chinese made handhelds dedicated to retrogaming. I was doing some research to pick which one to buy and came across Russ's channel and found it very useful and it kinda sparked my desire to dive more into the retro handheld world. Fast forward a few months and it's time to have Russ on The SEGA Lounge to talk about his personal experiences with games and how the pandemic made him decide to start this new project when he was already busy with a food blog. I know emulation isn't everyone's cup of tea but try to keep an open mind. This is a different kind of episode, but one I had a lot of fun recording and hope you enjoy as well.

I sincerely hope you enjoyed this week's show and I also hope you come back next week. If this week's episode was a bit different in focus, next week's will be totally different as we're going back to one of those documentary-style shows with lots of friends joining in!
