The HG101 podcasts, much like the site itself, focuses on gaming outside of the mainstream, both retro and recent. We try to have set topics, although we usually go off on tangets, like much any regular conversations with a bunch of gaming nerds. These happen, on average, about once a year. We hope you enjoy them!

Myself, Andrew "Vysethebold" and Rob "Quickpaw" sat down to talk at length about the Sega Master System. And when I say "at length", I mean, AT LENGTH. Including music, the total running time is three and a half hours, which suggests we may have gone a bit overboard. But it's also an extremely extensive podcast, as we discuss pretty much everything related to the system - its origins, its accessories, and its most notable games, including Alex Kidd, Zillion, Wonder Boy, Miracle Warriors, Phantasy Star, Shinobi, Cyborg Hunter, Fantasy Zone, and many, MANY more. (Looking back on it, we forgot to discuss Snail Maze as we mention earlier on. D'oh.)

This podcast is solely 100% devoted to the 3DO. We discuss why it's the most 90s console in existence, as well as some of its best titles - Star Control II, Total Eclipse, Return Fire - and some of its worse, mostly Plumbers Don't Wear Ties and Virtuoso.
