136 - RikuRose of The Tojo Dojo
This week, I’m joined on The SEGA Lounge by RikuRose, chairman of The Tojo Dojo, a recent but great resource for all your Yakuza and Shenmue needs. Created earlier this year, it’s grown in support on social media and has been sharing memes and news related to, mostly, the Yakuza franchise. It was really nice to get to know RikuRose and put his love for SEGA to the test in another hard as nails challenge.

135 - James Brown and Matt Oliver from Shenmue Dojo
This week, I'm incredibly honored to be joined by the current co-owners of Shenmue Dojo, the most prominent online resource for Shenmue news, info and more, and also the most active community. The Dojo turned 20 years old earlier this month, which is in and of itself an achievement, but when you add to that the importance of its community (and others, of course) to the evolution of the Shenmue series, it's an even bigger deal. I've had the pleasure of sitting down with James Brown, aka SkillJim, and Matt Oliver, and what follows is a longer than usual episode of The SEGA Lounge, but also one that was certainly a pleasure to record as it's not very often that I get to have fellow Shenmue enthusiasts on the show. They also address the ongoing, yet already funded, Kickstarter project for Shenmue World, a fanmade magazine focused on Shenmue. I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed recording it.

134 - Jord Odell of SEGA Shop Europe
This week, I'm joined by Jord Odell, E-commerce and Social Media Manager at SEGA Shop Europe, which includes both the UK and European storefronts. Jord is the marketing wizard that connects the fans and Numskull, the people running the shop. She kindly agreed to have a chat with me about her career and her love for video games and was also kind enough to let me put her through another brutal edition of The SEGA Lounge Challenge.

133 - RetroAchievements with Meleu
In the distant year of 2013, I had the pleasure of interviewing Scott Davies, a programmer, SEGA fan, and the creator of RetroAchievements, a project that intended to add achievements to old games. This week, I'm joined on The SEGA Lounge by Meleu, a staffer over at RetroAchievements. We talk about the site's inception, Meleu's work with the RA community and what's in store for the future. Do you love collecting trophies or achievements in modern games? Ever wished you could get achievements in your favorite retro games? Keep listening to find out how you can make that happen thanks to RetroAchievements.

If you're not aware of it, Victory Heat Rally is an upcoming retro-style, super scaler, arcade racing game, that is heavily inspired by classic SEGA arcade racers and is currently looking for funding on Kickstarter. I sat down with Ian and Aidan from Skydevilpalm and our old friend RoBKTA, one of the soundtrack composers, to discuss the project. And we also play a musical game.

128 - Mikael Tillander
This week's guest is Mikael Tillander, the Swedish developer behind a fairly recent Mega Drive game called Tänzer. It's a blend of different genres, the most notable ones being platformer, hack 'n' slash and shoot-em-up. A fast-paced action game with an amazing soundtrack that you can get for your Mega Drive or Genesis in physical format. I talk to Mikael about his hobby as a video game developer, his newfound love for the SEGA Mega Drive and what to expect from him in the future. Check it out. Buy Tänzer here: https://megacatstudios.com/collections/genesis/products/tanzer-sega-genesis Follow Mikael on Twitter: https://twitter.com/mix256 If you're curious about the game and want to know how it plays and sounds, I'll be doing a Lounge follow-up Twitch stream on my channel on Wednesday, October 7th from 9PM UK time. I'll be playing through the game, or trying at least. I'll probably be dying a lot so you will be able to at least laugh at my lack of skills. As I mentioned last week, September 30th was International Podcast Day. We celebrated it early in a way with the amazing SEGAGUYS from The SEGAGUYS RetroPod, but I'd be remiss if I didn't give a shout out to other amazing podcasts out there: The Saturn Junkyard's Titancast Arcade Perfect Podcast Dreamcast Years The SEGAGUYS RetroPod Longplay The fine folks at Feedspot included The SEGA Lounge in their Top 10 SEGA Podcasts You Must Follow in 2020 list. Not only that, but we are number one on that list. Thank you very much, Feedspot, for naming The SEGA Lounge the number one podcast you must follow this year! Of course, none of this would be possible without you guys, the listeners and I have to say your support for the current season of the show has been tremendous and humbling. Thank you very much!
