Ep. 423 – Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong

Our alphabetical expedition through the NES Classic Edition continues on this episode. That could only mean one thing: it’s time to talk about Donkey Kong. We talk about Jumpman, we cover a Donkey Kong timeline, and there’s a medical story involving a wiener (a little something for everyone).

Naruto: Gekito Ninja Taisen! 4

Dattebayo! We’re taking a short break from the NES Classic games to talk about one of Dave’s favorite games. Captain Gun Nerd Jon Turley joins us to talk about Naruto: Gekito Ninja Taisen! 4 (aka Naruto Gecko Ninja Mike Tyson), the 2005 GameCube fighting game by Tomy. In addition to talking about the game: we talk about the Naruto anime, we all decide which sitcom couple best parallels our individual relationships with our significant others, and we talk about Star Trek quite a bit. There is a super difficult Naruto quiz!

Ep. 420 – Crypt of the NecroDancer

Crypt of the NecroDancer

REANIMATE! We’re taking a break from playing through the games on the NES Classic long enough to talk about Crypt of the NecroDancer with Rhythm Master Paul and Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress Chandra. NecroDancer is what it looks like when a rhythm game meets a roguelike dungeon crawler. Aside from game talk, we eat gross jellybeans; Chandra comes at us with some sweet sweet Garfield JOI; there are two (count ’em—two!) quizzes on this episode: a Wizard Quiz and a Necromancer Quiz; and there’s plenty of Dragon Ball talk (we legit discuss Piccolo’s wiener for like five minutes).

Ep. 417 – Call of Cthulhu Wrap Up

With the Call of Cthulhu Actual Play finished, we decided to sit down and discuss the game. We ask questions like: What did the investigators miss? How else could the story have ended? Why didn’t Alex “Chili Dog” Peterson just uppercut Cthulhu? Joining the discussion is the sweetest pair of sweethearts you’ve ever met: Josh and Nicole (aka investigators Brock and Donna). Tyler explains the motivations and inspirations behind this game and Josh clarifies what he meant by “that ending sucks”.

The date is August 9, 1977. Short of options, the investigators have recruited the help of CIA agent Mr. Zeus, who is also a member of the Knights Templar. The Knights have been working against cult leader Jean Lafitte for hundreds of years and were able to help the investigators locate Lafitte’s personal holdings in New York City: the Astor Hotel and several properties at the harbor. It was discovered that Lafitte had been working through a Leng Spider, disguised as a dog named “Harvey”, to instruct the Son of Sam. After doing some detective work and bartering drugs for information, the investigators received witness testimonial that Harvey had been seen driving the yellow Ford Galaxy which previously had been spotted by the investigators at the Process Church. Police records indicated that the Ford Galaxy is owned by one David Berkowitz. After tracking down Berkowitz’s address, the investigators are now on their way to the apartment of the Son of Sam.

Ep. 413 – Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Over the last four years we’ve played through IGN’s Top 100 SNES Games of All Time, Dorkly’s Top 25 N64 Games, and this episode marks the end of our journey through Digital Trends’ 25 Best Sega Genesis Games . We wrap the list up with DT’s number one pick: Sonic the Hedgehog 2. It’s a platformer developed by Sega…you might have heard of it. We also announce the next list we’ll be tackling, we double up on quizzes, there’s a story about bears and pancakes, and even a review of the new Coke Zero Sugar.

Ep. 411 – Samurai Shodown

Samurai Shodown

This is a game-heavy episode, which we guess is okay because it’s “technically” a “video game podcast”. Anyway, we’re talking about Samurai Shodown, the second-ranked game on Digital Trends’ list of 25 Best Sega Genesis games. Do not worry, we also talk about tee-ball.

Super Street Fighter 2

We’re back on the Digital Trends list this week—which can only mean one thing—it’s time for Super Street Fighter II for the Sega Genesis. We talk about the game for a bit, but more importantly, we try a Marmite grilled cheese sandwich. We also open a listener package, pee in Swift the fox’s mouth, and brainstorm some charity stream ideas.
