Legend. With a name like that, it has to be good, right? Or at least similar to the a plethora of other games that would also fit that sort of name? Yes, the second one. That’s exactly how it is. So the Randomizer dealt Tyler and Dave the side scrolling beat ’em up Legend. We give you a Jack update, how Melissa helped Tyler conquer something that he very much wanted conquered, Dave tells some sweet new Ultima Online stories. So please come check out a pretty okay review of Legend for the Super Nintendo.
Pretty good hand we got dealt by the Randomizer this week with Knights of the Round. It even scooped us up Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins and J Jonah Jetplane Jonathan Wilson (though being on the other side of the world precluded his attendance). We talk hacked reddit accounts, eating in bed, Cadillacs & Dinosaurs, and a little about a talking mongoose – along with a decent dive in Knights of the Round. Enjoy!
Tyler and Dave loved Nicktoons growing up. Doug, Rugrats, Rocko’s Modern Life — and one more that the Randomizer had to ruin for us, Ren & Stimpy. So the Randomizer dealt us Ren & Stimpy: Fire Dogs for the SNES. But we decided to finish off the whole series and throw in Time Warp, Veediots, and Buckroo$ just to torture ourselves. We hope you enjoy our pain but we also do a deep dive into the good and bad history of Ren & Stimpy (along with it’s creator, John K.) There is plenty of nostalgia to soak in, along with the cringe of how awful John K is.
The Randomizer works in mysterious ways. After throwing sports game after sports game in our faces, IT FINALLY THROWS US SOMETHING IN OUR WHEEL HOUSE — months after it would have been SEO relevant — BUT STILL! So this week we break down Marvel Super Heroes in War of the Gems for the SNES! We start off by enjoying some snacks sent by Better Than Us Choctopus, we talk about Call of Cthulhu and just a bit about Star Wars, and then we wrap things up with a glorious quiz from Ross-Rachel Green.

Are you like a lot of 90s kids and love the side scrolling beat ’em up genre? Are you one step beyond that and you’re a beat ’em up hipster and you’re all about a more obscure title from 1994 called The Peace Keepers? WELL GOOD FOR YOU SINCE WE SORT OF TALK ABOUT IT! But first we have updates on our children and our wives and we talk about hospitals and then eventually pirates and cars. But trust us, we spend a good chunk talking about this odd little gem. So please enjoy!
Hey! Listen! It’s (basically) episode #500! So we chose a big hit of nostalgia in the form of Final Fight 2: Electric Boogaloo. You know we have to bring a little Bailey Jay, a little cringe, a little weird sex story, and lots and lots of Mike Haggar.
With more cloaks and chains than a cultish orgy, we take a bribe and play Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, the 1995 action/beat ’em up for the Super Nintendo. Thanks Mysterious iTunes Donor- Tim I. Tunes who totally didn’t bribe us to produce an episode on this game, we dove full tilt into the 90s fest that is this game. We have plenty of deep religious discussion, sexual merchandise, and well researched John Leguizamo trivia.

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 →
