Ep. 461 – Paperboy

Paperboy

This week we’re hopping on our bikes, pedaling down Easy Street, and unleashing some good old-fashioned wanton destruction. That’s right! We’re talking about Paperboy for the NES. A wild Randy Holland (of being Tyler’s dad fame) appears! Yes, Randy makes a surprise appearance and joins us as we take a wildly “dad inappropriate” quiz from listener Ross Rachel Green. We show off our brand new bumper that we don’t know how to use, courtesy of Duke Sithtoast. Finally, we wrap things up by playing some listener voicemail.

Ep. 460 – Kung Fu

Kung Fu

This week we scale five floors of the Devil’s Temple and punch our way through hoards of vest-wearing minions in order to talk about Kung Fu, the 1984 side-scrolling beat ’em up for the NES. We also talk about Tyler’s birthday, Jerry Stiller (of course), marriage, and bidets. We open a package from Sandwich Pope Phil and we play a few listener voicemails.

Ep. 457 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NES

We plunge into the murky poo-poo water beneath the Big Apple long enough to talk about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES. Yes, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles—freaks on fire, April showing her support, electric seaweed! We open a package from Listener Sean. Yes, we make TMNT parallels to Frasier as well as Friends.

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
