Pinocchio, right? Everyone loved Aladdin, Goof Troop, Mickey’s Magical Quest – surely Pinocchio is right up there too? You did know there was a Pinocchio game, didn’t you? Since it came out at the tail end of the SNES’ lifespan. Well, if you’re in that slim minority – don’t you worry. We break down all the ins and outs of this one and maybe do a draft along the way. We talk some anime, some horror, some television, but we really do go through this game and have plenty to say about it,
“Izzy’s Quest for the Olympic Rings”, said the Randomizer, cold and indifferent as always. “Would you punish us so harshly for playing Dungeons & Dragons sometimes?” Ian snarked. The Randomized smiled it’s blackened grin in return. “Go and embrace the controversial torch mascot from the 1996 games in Atlanta, my friends. May its slippery and everchanging form be of comfort to you all on your journey.”
Yep, it’s that sort of game. But we get to talk anime, movies, and discuss what our last meals would be, at least. Come sit awhile and listen, Derek. To this, our dark episode of Izzy’s Quest for the Olympic Rings.
Tom and Jerry. You know, you’ve seen the cartoon. Sometimes Tom looks like a cat, other times he is more like a cat person. Sometimes Tom and Jerry hate each other, sometimes they are best friends. They’re a duo that has endured since 1940. But how well do they translate to the SNES? Courtesy of The Randomizer, we find out. So please come check out a cartoon draft, the latest edition of Ian’s Horror Hole, a deep review of Sam’s Club pizza, and a reveal to who absolutely loves The Croods. Sit awhile and listen!
The Wizard of Oz for the SNES continues our parade of hard to play games. Does this deserve to be one those iconically horrible games ranking up there with Shaq Fu, Bebe’s Kids, Lester the Unlikely, Bill Laimbeer’s Combat Basketball, and Pit Fighter? We might tell you. Or we might even debate that amongst ourselves. But before that, we have to do a soda draft. Followed up by some horror chat, some great restaurants in the L.A. area where Dave got to visit, and Dane’s quiz returns with a vengeance. Come sit awhile and listen to use review the validity of the hot garbage label on The Wizard of Oz.
The Randomizer served some BAD, emphasis on that syllable, to the bone games in Terminator 2: Judgment Day and T2: The Arcade game to us this week. Ian takes Tyler’s weathered old mantle as the Cloud of Negativity when it comes to there two LJN classics. So come listen to us double on the Terminator games, we do another draft (hey, we like these a lot), talking some horror movies, talk some Overwatch 2, and get a gander at Dave’s Steam Deck. Come sit awhile and listen to us really bemoan Terminator 2: Judgment Day & T2: The Arcade Game!
Terminator 2: Judgment Day & T2: The Arcade Game Shownotes:
Incredible Crash Dummies. You read that correctly, not the Incredible Crash TEST Dummies (don’t worry, we explain why you may remember that extra word there). Join us as we journey down the road from PSA, to cartoon, to toys, and finally to video games for the Incredible Crash Dummies. We stop off in order to do an NBA style draft of chocolate based candies. Corey Feldman is discussed at length – some movies, his voice acting, more about Ian’s curiosity if Corey Feldman could have pulled off Indiana Jones, and his wide catalog of music. We swoon over The Kids in the Hall, discuss the estate of Casey Kasem and finally summon the Randomizer for what game we will play next. Come sit awhile and listen!
The time has come, after all that edge talk we have arrived at Indiana Jones’ Greatest Adventures. This SNES game covered all three movies of the original trilogy, so to fully understand everything that goes into this game – we had to watch all the movies and talk about them at length THEN roll into deep game talk over all the levels for three movies. There is plenty of movie talk and plenty of game talk on this one. So much so that we don’t get to all our normal segments. So if you like Indiana Jones then this is absolutely the episode for you. Sit awhile and listen! Indiana Jones; Greatest Adventures!
Plok! At long last we took The Randomizer hostage so we could force this game into our library. You know, since The Randomizer really tried to give us multiple sports games in a row. So we talk about Ian’s curious dental condition, many things Star Wars and Marvel, the amazing 2019 show Chernobyl, Bioshock 2 DLC Minerva’s Den, Dave’s latest anime venture, and of course – so much Plok. There was quite a bit to go into about this lesser know game (I’m blaming you, Rayman). So please sit awhile and listen to the retro video game opinions of three old cis white men. I’m sure that is very hard to find in podcast form.
