The Blues Brothers Edition

SNEScapades Podcast Episode 68 Featuring The Blues Brothers. Plus The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends, and The Great Waldo Search

After taking a holiday break, Emmy Zero and SteampunkLink are back. We wish we could tell you that they’ve got some real bangers for the first episode back, but we don’t. We’re talking about three games based on other franchises and those tend to be a bit spotty.

Today, it’s all about games based on The Blues Brothers, Rocky & Bullwinkle, and Where’s Waldo. We start with The Blues Brothers. We’ll talk a bit about the movie it’s based but we’ll mostly be discussing the history of Titus, the little French company that wasn’t quite as little as you might have thought. We can’t tell you why they made a movie based on a decade-old movie, but we can tell you what we thought of that game.

Next, we tackle the world of cartoons with a brief history of Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends. Can this game be an accurate representation of its source material AND be a fun game to play? We’ll tell you.

Finally, we discuss the history of Where’s Waldo (or should we say, Where’s Wally?) and discuss the SNES game The Great Waldo Search. This game’s NES version is pretty infamous, and we’ll tell you if there is any redemption for it’s SNES sibling. We’re happy to be back and hope you all had a great holiday.

If you want to hear more of us, we had been keeping busy over the break. You can listen to SteampunkLink on a recent episode of the Drinkipedia Podcast. And you can follow them on twitter and keep up with all of their shows @gateleapers. SteampunkLink and Emmy Zero were on the final episode of Namely 90s 12 Days of Christmas Specials for 2021 talking about Power Rangers Zeo. You can follow them on twitter @Namely90s. Catching Up on Cinema was kind enough to watch a really bad movie from 1972 with SteampunkLink and let him talk about it on their show last November. Listen to that and follow them on twitter @CatchingCinema. Finally, Emmy and Link competed on a fun new gameshow hosted by Kamijace called The Greatest Gaming Gameshow Ever. Follow the show on twitter @GGGameshow. And follow Kamijace himself cuz he tends to do a lot of cool things @Kamijacegaming.
