There was a time when GameCola was big on making predictions about the future—whether it was Captain Eric’s patented Psychic (née Super) Thumbs, the endearingly mad ramblings of Zach Rich, or the misguided prognostications of senior citizen Myrtle T. Blinkin, our readers always had a place to turn when the mysteries of tomorrow needed unraveling. Many, many tomorrows later, three installments of “The GameCola Podcast” that feature insights on the once-future have arrived on our YouTube channel.
Colin Greenhalgh, Eric Regan, Marianne Fenwick, Michael Gray, Michael Ridgaway, Nathaniel Hoover (hey, that’s me!), and Paul Franzen take their respective Nostradamus complexes for a walk as they (among other things) discuss their thoughts on then-upcoming games such as Bioshock 2, Ghostbusters: The Video Game, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, Wii Sports Resort, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Tales of Monkey Island, Metroid: Other M, and…I have Turok 64 in my notes for some reason, but I don’t recall us doing any time-traveling before Podcast #38. Oh, well. Through the lens of the present, we can look back on the past and marvel at how frickin’ right I was about Metroid: Other M.
