Secret Levels

Goobz & Toby pick one retro video game each episode to play. They discuss the history, story, game play, music, fun facts, then rate it at the end from 1-10. The goal is to see which old games hold up today and maybe see if some of our favorites are only good due to nostalgia. The guys mostly play games on NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, SEGA Genesis, Playstation, PS2, and any other dead console they can get their hands on. *ADULT LANGUAGE IS USED*... Show More
