We’ve come to yet the end of another year. And once again, we conclude the year with a racing game on the cover. I wonder if that’s going to keep happening?
Link and Emmy breath a sigh of relief today as they begin the end of December 1992 off on the right foot.
December 1992 is winding down, but the games have not been great and they really start fraying Link’s nerves in this episode.
We start with Cal Ripken Jr. Baseball to see if SNES baseball gets any better. This one fares better than most but it’s still not amazing. We also talk about Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA playoffs. We didn’t think basketball could get much worse than last week’s All Star Challenge (by virtue of not really being a basketball game) but this one sure wants to challenge that assumption.
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.
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).
