Cave Story - Error Machine Podcast Retrospective


A while back, my fellow podcaster Lucas and I started a thing where every fifth episode would be a retrospective. We mainly just used it as an excuse to talk about Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for an entire episode, but then we loved the idea so much that we kept it up. We've covered Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country 2, the original Mega Man trilogy, the Sega Channel, Earthbound, and now, the original indy darling, Cave Story.


We all love Cave Story. Well, except me, I think the game is just slightly above average, but we get into why I feel that way during the podcast. Luke, however, thinks it's one of the best videogames ever made. Usually we just spend an hour + lavishing praise upon whatever game we've chosen, and while there's still plenty of that, it was a nice change of pace to have a game that we disagreed on.

I know Cave Story is a much-beloved game among the community, and I think you guys may enjoy checking out the episode.

Greetings and salutations.

TheDustinThomas here, you probably don't know me, but I write things here on Destructoid from time to time. Occasionally I get on the front page:

The Most Inexplicably-Often Rented Games At Blockbuster

The Top 10 Videogame Pro Wrestlers

A Retrospective of Pro Wrestling Videogames from the Perspective of a Pro Wrestler

I'm also the host of a pretty sexy gaming podcast that I do with a couple buddies of mine. You can download and subscribe to it here. You should totally do that.

All of my games writing you can find on DToid, but I also write about other things on my personal blog. Here's my top 5 most read blogs:

Tempting of the Doon

5 Ways Getting in Shape Has Messed with my Head

Tim Lambesis: A Fan's Struggle to Understand

Why I Already Dislike Planet Fitness

You may notice that most of those blogs are somehow related to pro wrestling. Why? Because I spent 10 years as a professional wrestler before retiring in October 2013 due to back injuries. I actually wasn't too bad.

A bit about me? Well, obviously I love to write. It's not a paying gig yet, but I'm certainly trying to make that happen.

I'm a happily married man, and my wife is smokin' hot.

I have a huge, manly beard.

God comes first in my life above all else. I'm a leader at my church, as well as the head of our media department.

I've been a metalhead pretty much my entire life.

I'm also a die hard fan of The Simpsons.

Other miscellaneous fact.
