Okay, Chase and Emmy were a little cranky on this one. But you would be too if you had to play these three games back-to-back. Cliffhanger is a boring game that plays acceptably, until it doesn’t. Battletoads and Double Dragon isn’t fit for either of those franchises (and that’s saying something because we already kinda don’t like Battletoads.) And Aero the Acrobat is kinda like if a DM went through the trouble of crafting a really excellent story, and was then just hell-bent on wiping the party and ending the game early.
We have made it to another month in our chronology, so it’s time to talk about an issue of Nintendo Power. Our guests for this episode are two-thirds of the amazing team from the Gateleapers podcast. Jason and Matt might have been too young to have read this issue when it was new, but they have a ton of hilarious commentary to offer anyway.
It’s a zombie jamboree! But there’s also mummies, chainsaw maniacs, killer dolls, and more! I guess it’s more like a monster mash. But whatever you want to call it, we’re talking about the Lucasarts classic Zombies Ate My Neighbors. You better believe we’re gonna have to properly rank this one. How high do you think it should go?
We’re talking about Tuff E Nuff and Top Gear 2. Also we briefly mention Utopia: Creation of a Nation.
The podcast is a-changin’! Well, a little bit. It won’t be radically different, but there will be a change to our ranking system. We talk about almost EVERYTHING so this is a good place to jump in if you’re a new listener.
Hey everyone. Sorry for the delay. We’re back and we’re recording again. But before that, we need to get this episode out there that we recorded months ago but never got to actually edit and put up. So here it is!
It’s time to talk about a certain rodent who likes to go really fast, has attitude, and tends to get kissed by human ladies.
We’ve got, not one, but two racing games for you today… kinda. Redline F-1 Racer really isn’t much to write home about, but Rock N’ Roll Racing has become one of our favorite racing games on the system.
It’s time to talk about Koei for the very last time. Yup, we’re calling it a day on covering Koei games (with possibly a few exceptions) as we just can’t wrap our heads around them. We’ll explain more in the episode.
Today, Link and Emmy play a port of an arcade brawler from 1991 based on the Avengers. Will this be as good as other licensed arcade brawlers from the same era (like TMNT, The Simpsons, and X-Men)? Well… You’ll just have to listen and find out.
