The first episode I'm part of is a short personal intro to me, but I'll be in with Johnny and Kat talking more specific video game collecting topics in the weeks to come. It's a well established podcast with dozens of episodes already, so check out the back episodes too. Some topics covered have been rare vs. expensive games, repros, homebrew, and pirates, collecting sets for current systems, and impact of Nintendo's mini consoles on collectors.

Or if none of that collecting stuff interests you, still listen to Johnny's story about his first Super Nintendo, which listens like an audiobook. It's one of my favorite podcasts I've ever heard: Part 1, Part 2.

Been listening most of the day today. Johnny kinda sounds like a younger John Cusack when he's "in script" in his head. And they're both named John, I SMELL CONSPIRACY.

Cool podcast.

Yeah I've been listening off and on to various ones throughout the day. Johnny seems like an overall good dude and has reasonable takes. Even when I disagree with something I can respect that he explained his stance/reasoning.

My favorite thing about Johnny is the voice he uses when he's describing a dumb counter-opinion. Makes my day every time.

I'll have to take a listen, that's awesome! I've been wanting to podcast for a while now, but too much on my plate to actually create a podcast. Maybe one day!

Congrats!

Sweet. Me and Johnny have differing opinions on a lot of things based on conversations we've had. I totally agree that N64 is a garbage console for garbage people though.

Isn't N64 one of your complete sets?

Yeah. If you collect all the games for it, you'll realize how small and uninteresting the console is as a whole when you stop looking at the same 20 top tier games everyone, including me, loves. SM64 and OOT are my two favorite games ever, but N64 as a whole is still the worst.

Can't even stand the Zeldas on N64 with the very much superior 3DS incarnations out now. Long as you can get around the small screen...

Like, I think my list of games I'd still own an N64 for is Mischief Makers, Super Mario 64, Bomberman Hero and uh, maybe Paper Mario, Quest 64 if I can ever find a working memory card for it... Waverace? Really it honestly
