Rhythm Master Paul Corn joins us to talk about our very recent trip to the Arcade Video & Game Room Expo 2016 in Rosemont, Illinois. We eat some weeaboo candy, drink some Yoo-hoo and then go straight into a discussion about the convention. We talk about the arcade games that were there, Billy Mitchell, Walter Day, and Man vs Snake.
Get your candles out, it’s time to delve into the dark dungeons of Excalabria. That’s right, we’re talking about Sword of Vermilion, the 1991 Action RPG for the Sega Genesis. Additionally, Tyler reveals that he is an old man and Dave talks about how he almost lost his job. We figure out how Weird Science would work out in real life; there’s a Chuck E. Cheese story; we talk about an upcoming convention; and there’s a quiz segment entitled “Kim Jong-Il or Lil Kim?”.
Slap on your brain bucket and join us as we talk about Road Rash II, one of Gooter-san’s most fondly remembered Sega Genesis games. Does it still hold up today? We also open an amazing package sent to us by the Bloody Handed Otaku Jack of Ziggy Moons Mike H. We spend some time talking about Nick At Nite, Zombie Mayor McCheese, and there’s a killer Homestar Runner impression in there somewhere.
We’re talking about the roguelike dungeon crawler, ToeJam & Earl, Digital Trends’ 18th-ranked Sega Genesis game. If conversation about rapping aliens from outer space isn’t funky enough for you: we also renew our Lay’s Passport to Flavor, we try Burger King’s new Whopperito, and Tyler shares a very important Fantasy World update! So suit up in your Frazier cosplay of choice and enjoy the show.
Brandon (of Axelay fame) joins Shock Value and Dave to help sort through a backlog of voicemails and text messages from our amazing listeners. This episode offers the hardcore Ray Stevens talk you could ever want in a podcast about video games! We also touch on Mechroboticon, The Legion of Lucifer, Weed Needles, and remember that birds are the worst.
