The Jungle Book has a LOT of iterations. Poems, books, movies, songs, live action movies, animated movies….and a Super Nintendo game. A 90s Disney platformer that wasn’t on IGN’s Top 100? Whatever could that mean about its quality? We get to that after we really drill down into the history of how many versions of it are out there. We also talk middle school stories and what was important to us in elementary school. Come hear all about our bear necessities.
The Randomizer ran out of MP last week since time after time after time it chose games we had already played — so we went rogue and decided to talk about some Super Scope games that randomly checked out a few months ago – Battle Clash and Metal Combat: Falcon’s Revenge. Let’s cut to the chase, these games are fantastic. So please join us while we talk games, take a quiz, persuade Melissa to briefly join us, and get very very hot.
Battle Clash and Metal Combat: Falcon’s Revenge Shownotes:
In 2020, do you know how to get Tyler and Dave together to beat a game for the show? You have a dark god of chance choose for them to play a Super Scope game. This week, courtesy of the Randomizer, we talk about Yoshi’s Safari. BUT NOT JUST YOSHI’S SAFARI. We also talk lush toys, take an opening AND a closing quiz, try some Pringles, discuss the different kinds of spider and how they play into fetishes. Come check us out!
“Pour the silver!” Dave shouted at Tyler. Tyler quickly poured the molten silver into the pentagram mold while chanting the opera scene from Final Fantasy VI backward. “Light our candles at my signal.” Tyler said, he and Dave, nodding to each other. “Now.” Tyler flatly said, as he and Dave lit their replica of the candles Rita Repulsa used to take away the Green Ranger’s powers. “It is finished, The Randomizer is sealed…for now.” Dave said with an exhausted smile. NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT THE SUPER SCOPE! We were given a great gift by Usurper Grimm with a boxed Super Scope. So we have to talk about the Super Scope and it’s packed-in game Super Scope 6. But we do try a hot sauce, talk about port-a-potty problems and delve into some childhood memories. Enjoy!
HEY! LISTEN! Well, please listen. This episode about Super Star Fox Weekend is a little different that the others you’ve gotten used to because we are talking about competition cartridges. The Randomizer chose Super Star Fox Weekend Challenge for us so we are lumping in the Donkey Kong Country Competition Cartridge, 1990 Nintendo World Championship, Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991, Nintendo Campus Challenge 1992, Powerfest ’94, Blockbuster World Championships, and Blockbuster Game Championship II. Do you like historical gaming goofs? We think you’ll like this one so give it a listen, please.
Vegas, baby! We’re talking about Vegas Stakes for the SNES. Who knows the American practice of Las Vegas style gambling and living? YOU KNOW IT’S ROSS RACHEL GREEN! We come in hot with stories about the Brain Surgery Bros, some more potential testicle surgeries, what Dave plans to do to make side money in his retirement, a story about a secret so deep that it took hypnotism to draw it out and just so so so many Albert Fish tangents. So if you like British intrigue, trusting strangers, and cannibalistic sadistic/masochistic serial killers – we just have the perfect SNES Vegas Stakes podcast episode for you!
Okay! Maybe you were expecting to hear an episode on Vegas Stakes for the Super Nintendo. That’s a legitimate expectation because on our last episode we stated that we would in-fact be covering Vegas Stakes. Welp. Due to some serious circumstances we were not able to make that happen, but we will get to it…eventually. In the meantime, please enjoy this Patreon bonus episode on Super Mario Odyssey that we released last year.
WARNING: This episode starts out with some siiiiick references to the following TV shows: Friends, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, and The Office. We also talk about Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch by request of Tyler (of TADPOG fame). We end up talking about Mario in a broader sense and talk generally about 3D platformers as a genre. We end by playing some listener voicemail. (Also, Tyler announces his new career as a Super Punch-Out!! speed runner.)
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.
