In this episode we’re diving into the worlds of sports-games and game-show games. We talk about Jimmy Connors Pro Tennis Tour which boasts some forward-thinking accessibility options but isn’t terribly impressive otherwise when compared to some of the other games on the system.
“Saints Preserve Us!” We take a break from the world of video games to launch a new Pilot that’s all about Star Trek series from the 90s. In each episode, we’ll take one episode from either The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, or Voyager, break it down and use it as a launch pad for for an interesting discussion about some topic related to the episode.
A lot of today’s games have something in common in that they represent a leap in quality over similar games that we may have seen on past systems, but still fail to be truly recommendable today.
We like to talk history as it relates to the games we play on this show. Usually the topics are confined to video game creators and companies, or franchises attached to the games. Today’s episode covers something a little different.
We’re talking about Super Star Wars and Prince of Persia on today’s episode of SNEScapades, which means we’re going into the history of Lucasarts and Broderbund software. Also something called Road Riot 4WD gets mentioned.
Looney Toons! Spiderman! X-Men! All in one place! Wow! What could possibly go wrong?
This rather interesting trio of games gives us a chance to talk about some fairly obscure video game companies (or at least what little we know about them in Raya’s case).
If you like butt-ugly cavemen, then have we got the game for you!
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
We only got to two games today, but they are both huge! First we talk about Soul Blazer, another game from studio Quintet and Publisher Enix. This is the same pair that brought us Actraiser and you can see a lot of Actraiser DNA in this game. Will it surpass its spiritual predecessor?
