Super Mario Land

Ready for a super deep dive into the nuances of the hit 1989 Gameboy titles Super Mario Land? Well, I hope you find that podcast since you’ll get a casual swim here. But if you like debates over the validity of timelines, discussion over high school colognes, and hearing about bladder pacemakers then you are home.

Ep. 470 – Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3

Wario Land

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.

Donkey Kong Jr. Math

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.

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. 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. 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.
