Andross is back! And we’re talking about Star Fox 2 (or as it’s known colloquially: Space Vulpine Jr.)! Do you want dry game talk exploring the development, cancellation and resurrection of Star Fox 2? We got that. There’s also a lengthy segment, courtesy of Executive Bruiser Janie and Terrified Michelle, where we crunch down on some Mexican snacks directly into the mics (now *that’s* what I call podcasting!). We wrap things up with a Fox Quiz from Quizmaster Bovine Bear Matt, we call Jacob (of wolf-fighting fame), and we answer a few listener voicemails.
Happy (day after) New Year! Now that we have severely dated yet another episode—Chocto (you know him from YouTube) joins us on this one to talk about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch. Yes, we realize this game is less than a month old. It hardly qualifies as an “old game” but we do our best to shoehorn retro gaming references in (okay, maybe not our best). We focus on the Adventure Mode a lot but we also talk about the game in a broader sense, and we end up talking about previous Smash Bros. games as well. Of course we talk about our mains and speculate on DLC fighters. During the middle of the show a strange package from Link makes an appearance. We wrap things up by tackling a Smash Quiz that was sent in by Quiz Master Bovine Bear Matt.

But if you like debates over the validity of timelines, discussion over high school colognes, and hearing about bladder pacemakers then you are home. Continue reading →
Hold on to your hats (Bull, Dragon, or Jet) because this episode is all about Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3! It’s a weird little platformer that was released by Nintendo for the Game Boy in 1994. We take some time to figure out if greed is good. We also talk about surgeries and Spider Man, and we take two quizzes. Over the course of the episode we fail to name so many things we reference.

What did you want to badly that you forgot to ask for it? What was a game we could do quickly after Dragon Con? BECAUSE YOU WANTED IT SO BADLY – DONKEY KONG 3! We dish about Dragon Con, we complain about work, we dig in deep over Secret Hitler! We hope you enjoy it all! Continue reading →
Learning can be fun, especially when you play along with Donkey Kong Jr.! …or not. This week we’re talking about Nintendo’s 1986 edutainment platforming gem for the NES: Donkey Kong Jr. Math. We also open a care package from Edge Lord Kyle, and we answer some listener voicemails (including some special messages from Saint Zach). Continue reading →
The beast is back: now with 100 levels of pain! That can only mean one thing: we’re talking about Donkey Kong ’94 for the Game Boy. We talk about guinea pigs and putting on wet shirts. We muse about the Game Boy Classic, and take a quiz by Quizmaster Matt. Continue reading →
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. Continue reading →
