In this special episode Joe talks about Little Samson, a game that isn’t cheap or easy to find but is definitely worth tracking down. A more personal episode, Joe shares his story of triumph of finally being reunited with a childhood favorite by jumping through some hoops and importing the Famicom version, Seirei Densetsu Lickle.
The Backlog is a show that focuses on overlooked gems from gaming’s long and storied history. These days it seems like every game released is promoted as a blockbuster Triple-A title, but way back when, some games were just tiny releases that didn’t get any promotion at all. My goal is to introduce people to these great games that never got the love they deserved and inject some of that old-school flavor into your life. Every game featured is still inexpensive and easy to find, making it easy to experience these buried treasures.
