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.
Welcome to Talkin’ Toons. This episode of SNEScapades is going to feature a lot of talk about cartoons because both games being discussed today are adaptations of cartoons from the early 90s.
WHOO HOO! EPISODE 50! We didn’t really do anything special for this one other than talk about Super Valis IV and Sonic Blast Man, but they were fun to talk about!
Today, the duo are talking about three hockey games that came out on the SNES in 1993. Those games are the brutal Hit the Ice, the lackluster Super Slap Shot, and the fairly impressive NHL 94.
Continuing the streak of 1993’s “Games that are fine”; we have three more games that are perfectly, astonishingly okay. It’s been a long week. Why not stop doom-scrolling and settle down with us for an hour and let us tell you about some 30-year-old games that are fine?
SteampunkLink and Emmy Zero were faced with a licensed game attached to a fairly loathed license, a platform game who’s previous console iterations are infamously bad, and another Koei game. They prepared for the worst. But in the end were pleasantly surprised with what they got.
This episode features talk of 90s cartoons, horror franchises marketed to children, and forgotten franchises that just fizzled out. Remember the comic series Zen: The Intergalactic Ninja or the band Trixter? Neither did they, but they talk about them anyway.
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!
