How well does Red October follow the book? Is this finally the Koei game that gets us hooked? What was the deal with that strange Mega Man game for DOS back in the day? What do we think of Tom Clancey? How will Q*Bert 3, Rampart, and Super Smash TV fair after a second look? We’ll answer all of these questions and more on today’s episode!
1993 is officially starting now! We’re done with the specials for a bit and kicking off January 93 with Power Moves and California Games II.
Our first Playing With Power episode of SNEScapades has us taking a long trip down memory lane as we explore the big January 1993 bonus issue of Nintendo Power. We’ll talk about games we’ve already discussed on the show (like Magical Quest: Starring Mickey Mouse), some that we haven’t gotten to yet (like Shanghai II), and at least one we won’t actually see of a while (Equinox).

With another year of SNES games behind us, we decided that this was a good opportunity to have Willie and Ginger (The Grand Rapidians Play Games Podcast) on to talk about their history with the SNES and other games and consoles they played in the 90s.
We’ve come to yet the end of another year. And once again, we conclude the year with a racing game on the cover. I wonder if that’s going to keep happening?
In this episode, we talk about the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode “Explorers” in which Ben and Jake go on an expedition in a primitive space craft to replicate a historical voyage made by ancient Bajorins.
Link and Emmy breath a sigh of relief today as they begin the end of December 1992 off on the right foot.
December 1992 is winding down, but the games have not been great and they really start fraying Link’s nerves in this episode.
Link and Emmy talk about the late Star Trek: The Next Generation episode where we meet Worf’s brother (no, his other brother) and talk about the concept of the Prime Directive.
We start with Cal Ripken Jr. Baseball to see if SNES baseball gets any better. This one fares better than most but it’s still not amazing. We also talk about Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA playoffs. We didn’t think basketball could get much worse than last week’s All Star Challenge (by virtue of not really being a basketball game) but this one sure wants to challenge that assumption.
