This was a fun episode to record! It was fun to research the games. It was even kinda fun to edit. The only thing not fun about this episode was playing Super Batter Up.
Today, we’re talkin’ Tennis. And a lot of other things. In fact we didn’t actually care for the tennis all that much. But that David Crane guy is pretty noteworthy, so we talk about him for a little bit before touching on his so-called “Amazing Tennis”.
If you’re looking for “hidden gems” on the SNES, then this episode is for you because we have a trio of fantastic, yet seldom talked-about games today! First we take a trip to Nevernever Land as we discuss the film and game adaptation of Hook. The movie may not be terribly well-loved, but the game is a lot of fun.
Another episode and another impromptu new segment as SteampunkLink can’t help but tell Emmy Zero about some obscure imported French cartoons from the early 90s. But there’s no time to linger on that for too long, we got games to discuss.
Coming off of our Simpson’s extravaganza, we turn our attention to the other two games which give us less to talk about, but are more fun to play than Bart’s Nightmare.
Okay, okay, I know what you’re thinking. “The Turtles game had to share it’s space with other games, but you dedicated an episode exclusively to this trash?” Yeah, kinda. It’s because we really love talking about the Simpsons and this was a great excuse to discuss the wonderful Simpson’s arcade game that came out the year before.
We’re back with America’s games; baseball and Wheel of Fortune. Also Robocop.
Steampunk Link uses his “Science Device” (a microphone) to do a deep dive into Dinocity, discussing the company that made the game and the strange direct-to-tv movie that it’s based on.
It seems SteampunkLink didn’t have anything better to do while the podcast is on hiatus. Enjoy him trying to recreate a masterpiece from the Mario Paint Player’s Guide in Mario Paint.
A horizontal/vertical shooter hybrid, an F1 racing sim, and a first-person-shooter all on today’s show. What a line-up!
