We celebrate another milestone with a bunch of great guests. We talk SNES games, Super Scope games, general 90s nostalgia, our dream 90s-themed podcast convention, music, and more. Also it seems that Link and Emmy REALLY like talking Power Rangers and Link will find any excuse to bring up St. Louis pizza.
Here it is, folks. By the end of this episode, there will be 200 games on our ranked list. Not only that, but two of these games are going to shake up the upper portion of the list. Perhaps even a top ten contender? Two top ten contenders? I’m not saying here. You’re just going to have to listen.
Link couldn’t even be bothered to get far enough into Dungeon Master to get a proper screenshot of an actual character on a repeat playthrough for the cover art of this episode. The theme of today’s episode is “Who thought this was a good idea?”
We have the good, the bad, and the indifferent today, and you might be a little surprised to find out which one is which. The Battletoads may have usurped BOB for the cover of the last Nintendo Power they discussed, but Link and Emmy are making BOB the cover boy he was meant to be in this episode of SNEScapades.
Another month down, another Nintendo Power issue to talk about, and another episode of SNEScapades that goes on longer than an hour. In this episode, Link and Emmy discuss Jurassic Park, interesting controllers, cute teenage robots, iffy Nintendo science, and games you can play with your dad (or maybe your imagined younger self as the mid-life crisis sets in?)
It’s the last episode for May of 1993 and we’re talking about two firsts. The first casino game compilation and the first of two Carmen Sandiego games that ended up on the Super NES.
As we start to wind down May of 93, we’ve only got a few games left to talk about. On today’s show, Link and Emmy are talking about Super Turrican and Taz-Mania.
It’s giant robot tanks, fishing, and cyberpunk rpgs. Three games that couldn’t be more different. Despite not being your typical SNES games, both Emmy and Link walked away mostly positive on these games.
We’ve got three 2D, sidescrollers today. Some are alright, some aren’t very good. None are amazing. None are awful. One has some cool things that make it stand out, another is interesting in the ways it falls short, and the last isn’t really interesting at all, but won’t ruin your day.
There is so much to talk about in this May 1993 issue of Nintendo Power, that we needed a super-sized episode cram it all in. We’re gonna talk Batman Returns, The Wonder Years, Dave, the Mario Bros. movie, Kawasaki jet skis, defunct comics! What more could you ask for?
