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?
The games are bad. We actually found one that is worse than Pit Fighter! But let’s not focus on the bad, let’s look at the positive instead.
It’s been while, but we’re back doing what we do best; talking about and ranking SNES games. We’re finally winding down October of 1992, but first we decide to go back and talk about some games our guests brought up a few weeks ago in our special and re-rank them on our top 100.
Oh, you want crossovers? We got crossovers! SteampunkLink and Emmy Zero are joined by Trevor (@CatchingCinema) as well as Greg (@NerdsFTC) to talk about some of their favorite SNES games and offer challenges to how the rankings could be adjusted in the future. We cap everything off by playing SNES multi-cart draft! We all had a lot of fun, it was a blast recording this with Trevor and Greg and we think you’ll enjoy listening.
Game numbers 99 and 100 go on the list! How exciting! We decided to talk about Q*Bert 3 first since we wanted number 100 to be special and Space Megaforce is an amazing game.
