Rex Ronan: Experimental Surgeon! Doesn’t that sound awesome?! What could it be about? Did you guess it was an educational spoof of the movie Fantastic Voyage that centers around the dangers of smoking? WOW, VERY GOOD GUESS! So please listen to Tyler and Dave discuss the finer points of the game but also other educational games, Inner Space, Muppet Babies, Star Wars and Whitney Cummings. 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.
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.
Oh man, finally! We are everyone’s favorite 1993 time travel based law enforcement show starring a handsome male lead who also has plenty of movies under his belt – TIME COP! What? No? What the hell is Time Trax? THE SAME THING BUT WORSE? AND THEY MADE A GAME ABOUT IT? HOW IS IT? Listen and see! We try to be funny to compensate and Terrified Michelle calls in with the most divisive question since “Wiping: Sitting or Standing?”
“You may have a single boon. What do you wish?” bellowed the Randomizer. “Ryan.” Tyler said, “I want my brother back.” The Randomizer narrowed it’s eyes and creaked a wry smile. “SO BE IT!”, the Randomizer exclaimed as it faded from view, leaving a single SNES cartridge where it once stood. Prehistorik Man! The platformer made by Titus back in 95 is what we are covering today, Ryan Holland reappears after a long hiatus as he and Tyler have a childhood history with this game. But that’s not all they cover, they talk girlfriend similarities, if you have to shave or not for certain activities, and serial killer Bob Berdella. Enjoy!
Dragon’s Lair! Did you see the art and episode announcement and got excited? WELL DIAL IT BACK! WE AREN’T TALKING ABOUT THE GOOD ONE! We dive into the SNES port – and what a doozy. Tyler and Dave do talk about the works of Don Bluth, smells we think everyone needs to smell, and bring up the beauty of a twerking Sonic. Enjoy!
I know we ask you so much every week but we have been so so so good this week and we promise to keep being so good if you would do me this one favor. When we record it’s going to be Dave’s birthday. He is just the best spicy boi and deserves so much on his special 38th birthday. He really loves Pac-Man! So if you could please give us a Pac-Man game that is not a reskin of another game, we would love it so much! Could it not have horrible music? And if the story made sense, we would be good for the whole rest of the year! If we got all that we would try some spicy seafood snacks, take a quiz, and get so Baja Blasted!
-Praying on the Monkey’s Paw, Tyler “Dry Tubs” Holland.
