Ep. 453 – Tsuppari Ozumo

Tsuppari Ozumo

We strap on our respective mawashis to talk about Tsuppari Ozumo, the 1987 sumo wrestling game developed and published by Tecmo for the Nintendo Famicom. So…why are we covering this game? Well. We’re done talking about the games on the NES Classic, and this one is on the Famicom Mini (also Dave really wanted to play it). If you’ve been listening to the show for a while you know that we aren’t exactly what you would call “sports experts” but maybe Tsuppari Ozumo is the game that converts us. Maybe from this point forward we become real big Sumoheads. At the very least, we discuss the game. We open a package from Trash Bear.

Ep. 452 – Solomon’s Key

Solomon's Key

We’re talking about Solomon’s Key for the NES…kinda. You love 45 minute intro stories, right? Tyler tells a slumber party story and talks about their ‘tivities. Circus Skate Guy is back, baby! We talk about little kids behind their backs. For probably too long. Tyler issues a “Key Quiz”. We take a few calls. We thank a few people. We all have a good time.

Ep. 451 – The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda

Welp. We did it. We’ve reached the end of another list. We’ve already done an episode on Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, so this episode concludes our NES Classic series. And it is a loooong episode! Josh (of Uniracers fame) and Brandon (of being Tyler’s childhood friend fame) join us to talk about this Nintendo classic: The Legend of Zelda. There’s some game talk. But there’s also a church basement story. Tyler gets pretty drunk and we open a package from Edge Lord Kyle.

Ep. 450 – A Boy and His Blob

A Boy and His Blob

We don’t talk about this a lot because of the stigma that surrounds blob ownership…but we have a blob in the studio. It’s true. A couple of months ago we scraped together enough money from Patreon (thank you donors) to order our very own blob. Once a week we feed our blob a sriracha-flavored jelly bean, and he transforms into a pair of microphones and then we say dirty words into him. On a completely unrelated side-note: on this week’s episode we’re talking about David Crane’s A Boy and His Blob: Trouble in Blobolonia for the NES. We take a Which Jelly Bean Are You personality quiz? Tyler issues a jelly trivia quiz. We take a voicemail from longtime listener Fred.

Ep. 449 – Tecmo Bowl

Tecmo Bowl

Are you ready for some foooootball? We are!…or not? Either way, we strap on our helmets for this episode and talk about Tecmo Bowl for the NES. If you’re a longtime listener of our podcast, you know that sports games aren’t really our strong suit. That’s okay. We’re calling an audible (that’s a football thing, right?) and we’re bringing Time Lord Josh Edwards onto the field to lend us his gridiron know-how. Tyler issues a sports pop quiz, and we take a voicemail from Edge Lord Kyle about his personal experience with the game. Continue reading

Ep. 448 – Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

Super Mario Land 2

What do we do on this episode? Tyler’s Adventure in Dream Land ends with the most special chicken, Dave gets a Steam Link, Tyler plays a mobile game and goes to Graceland and we both dive into Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins for the Game Boy.  Continue reading

Ep. 447 – Mario’s Time Machine

Mario's Time Machine

Hot off the heels (hot on the heels?…whichever) of Mario Is Missing! We’re talking about the next Radical Entertainment and The Software Toolworks jam: Mario’s Time Machine. Ah, Mario’s Time Machine. It most certainly is a game. Thanks to Mastermold Mike Lanham for a surprise gift. DAVE WORD SLAMS HIS BOSS! We discuss the kind of person who works out in jeans, we talk about fake breasts, we recall what it was like to make our moms cry for the first time, and we pitch the Summer 2018 NES Classic. Tyler didn’t make any notes for this episode, so you know how good this one is going to be.  Continue reading

Ep. 446 – Mario Is Missing!

Mario Is Missing

It’s time to tune your Radical Datafax to TADPOG for a conversation on Mario Is Missing! You have something hard to drink, right? It may be needed to get through this game but maybe not through this episode. We talk condiments from across the pond (courtesy of Ross Rachel Green), Rap Snacks, there’s a hobo update, and a deep dive into Multiplicity. Collect three artifacts and summon whatever second rate Yoshi you can from Antarctica and our episode on Mario Is Missing!  Continue reading
