As Arcade Titles Go... This is R-Type of Game!

It's almost Christmas, but it's still business as usual here at Bucket List Gamers, and this episode we're looking at R-Type (41) from 1987.

Join us as we discuss the notoriously difficult, coin-gobbling, bullet hell space shooter and why it deserves to be so high on the Retro Gamers List!

We also discuss the morally bankrupt decision to release broken ports of 11+ year old games at a premium price, and Jay gives us an insight into his playthrough of The Walking Dead: Destinies... Spoiler... it isn't good!

Apologies for the slight audio crackle in some places!

Having been friends since college, when Jay revealed plans for what would later become BLG, Eddie jumped at the chance to be involved. Eddie has been a gamer for as long as anyone can remember, citing The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask as his favourite of all time.
Coming from a writing background, having spent over a decade running WWEBlog, Jay decided it was time to go in a different direction. That direction was gaming and thus the Bucket List Gamers (and Bucket List Board Gamers) were born!
