Gunstar Heroes, developed by Treasure for the Sega Genesis, is like mixing Contra and a heaping helping of crazy. Listen for the full review and a brand new bliss quiz! Some say that Retro Blissed is like a podcast mixed with a heaping helping of class. Oh wait, no one ever said that. Ever.
They've finally gone too far. Trevor, Johnny, and unfortunate guest Derek play through 40 (?!) original Sega Genesis games included as a "bonus" on the At Games Genesis clone console. With hits such as "Mr. Balls" and "Plumbing Contest," this may truly be the end of Retro Blissed. Proceed with caution.
Solomon's Key for the Nintendo Entertainment System (1987) is known for being a devilishly difficult action/platform/puzzle game. It's also the Patron pick for February, perhaps proving once and for all that Retro Blissed fans hate their hosts. Stick around for the full review and a brand new Bliss Quiz! It's the "Key" to a good time!
Hoops for the Nintendo Entertainment System is one of the first basketball games on the NES, standing out for its sense of character and super duper 90's cartridge cover. However, does it still hold up today, or does it crumble underneath its own weight like Trevor and Johnny during a jump shot contest? Or during a walk to the kitchen.
The doctor is in, Dr. Mario, that is! Listen for the full review of this 1990 Nintendo Entertainment System puzzle game, a brand new Bliss Quiz, and more. Only you can decide if Retro Blissed is the cure for boring podcast blues, or just a nasty virus to be destroyed by matching 3 like colored pills on top of it.

Oh boy. Sword of Sodan for the Sega Genesis does not have a great reputation. But surely EA wouldn't put their name to something that bad, right? The guys give their full review, Johnny performs an "inspired" reading of the actual game dialogue, and it all ends with a new Bliss Quiz. Listen now. It'll be fine.
DuckTales for the NES was one of the most popular games on Nintendo's gray box, but your hard hitting hosts will let you know if this money loving duck is as good as you remember, or just another Chinese buffet item waiting to happen. Stay for the full review, Bliss Quiz, and the first ever fan interview!
Outlander for the Sega Genesis is sort of a Mad Max game without Mad Max, made by the same people who made Mad Max on the NES. Will it be Bliss approved? Who knows, but you should stick around for the full review, bliss quiz, and other fun. Or don't. No one will ever know, except your own sense of guilt for never finding out if this would be the episode of Retro Blissed that doesn't suck. This could be the one.
Retro Blissed already covered Rock n Roll Racing on the Super Nintendo, but have you checked out the spiritual cousin to that SNES classic? Biker Mice from Mars gets the full review, horrible skit, and slapdash quiz show you expect from every episode of Retro Blissed. And also mutant biker mice. Because, why not?
Kirby's Adventure for the NES was the first time the pink puffball inhaled his enemies and gained their powers. The guys review this Nintendo classic and find out just how much food they can inhale, which it turns out is an entire Chinese buffet. Seriously though, sorry about the opening skit. It's really, REALLY stupid. So stupid.
Retro Blissed sends 2017 off with an awards show, honoring the best (and worst) of 2017. Then they undertake the epic task of ranking the top 10 games ever covered for the podcast. Oh, here's the name drop part of the speech: Sega. Nintendo. Mario. Sonic. Bubsy?
Crikey! It's Christmas time! In this holiday episode, Retro Blissed gives a full review of Mario Kart 64 along with "special" guest Trevor's brother, Derek. What makes this episode special? Well, an on air taste test of iconic Australian foods, a new bliss quiz, and three buffoons babbling joyously, of course. Merry Christmas, fans of the Bliss!
Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? Who knows, but Die Hard Arcade was a 1997 Sega Saturn console exclusive that really packed a punch. And a kick. And some bullets. And maybe a missile or two. Stick around for the full game discussion, review, and bliss quiz. Yippie ki yay, retro game fans!
Sub-Terrania for the Sega Genesis is a space shooter with very "interesting" multi-directional controls. Will this delight or infuriate? Tune in to find out, and stick around for the new Bliss Quiz and find out which Patreon pick is drawn from the hat! Bonus: another idiotic skit to start the show off!
Retro Blissed plays and reviews the original Alex Kidd for the Sega Master System. Miracle World may look like a Mario clone on the surface, but is there more under the hood? Will Johnny and Trevor disagree with their final score? Has there been a debate this heated since they tried to decide between pizza buffet or Chinese buffet? Stick around for the Bliss Quiz and find out if this show is a miracle or another belly flop into the shallow end of the kiddie pool!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: The Manhattan Project is a mouth full. It's also a game the guys have reminisced on many times on the show but never reviewed...until now. Does this NES beat 'em up live up to the nostalgia fueled memories, or will dreams be crushed and torn asunder like their belts after an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet? Listen for the full review, a brand new Bliss Quiz, and returning super guest Derek, brother of Trevor. Cowabunga!
Jeremy Clarkson. BBC. "The Stag." What do all of these things have in common? They are all completely unrelated to Top Gear for the Super Nintendo, of course. Top Gear is a classic 16-bit racer that was "the other choice" for early SNES adopters after Mario Kart. Known for its soundtrack and nearly unprecedented amount of content, how does Top Gear hold up in the Retro Blissed full point inspection and review? Stick around for the Bliss quiz and general bufoonery.

"Retro Scare Month" continues with Monster in My Pocket, a Konami action game based on those little rubber monsters we grew up with. That's how fans describe Trevor and Johnny: those little rubber monsters we all grew up with. Listen for their memories and thoughts on this game, a new bliss quiz, and some lame humor!
