Musya Edition

SNEScapades #40 Musya, Spooky Ghosts, Sloggy Pace. Plus Lethal Weapon, NHLPA '93, Info about Park Place Productions and SETA.

Wing Commander Edition

SNEScapades #39: Wing Commander. Space cats are coming for us. I'm not lion. Plus Wordtris, The stories of Armen Sarkissian and Chris Roberts.

On the Ball Edition

SNEScapades #36, On the Ball. Let's bounce. Plus GunForce, Imperium, Histories of Vic Tokai and Jorudan

The games on tap for today don’t reach nearly the highs of last week, nor are they (collectively at least) as bad as the trio before that. We kick off the episode with an fun and simple labyrinth-style game. It’s certainly different as far as SNES games are concerned
