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?
It’s finally here! The final episode for April 1993 contains a classic. The Lost Vikings may not be a name that carries quite the legacy of a Mario or a Halo Chief (that’s the character’s name, right?) but it ought to be up there because this game is pure 2D puzzle-platforming bliss.
SNEScapades is going to the movies today. We’re discussing three games that were based on movies: Toys, Wayne’s World, and The Terminator.
This is a big one folks! We do some deep dives on all sorts of topics while flipping through the pages of Nintendo Power from March 1993. We talk more about the art, specifically the covers from this era of Nintendo Power. We also chat about the Storm of the Century, Canadian media review shows for kids, obscure cartoons only SteampunkLink seems to remember, Capcom, Tiny Toons, the poorly chosen Nintendo Power award nominees, and lots more.
