Speed Racer in My Most Dangerous Adventures! No Scott Pilgrim this week so we go back to the ever full well of The Randomizer – and it spit out Speed Racer. Remember that resurgence of Speed Racer in the 90s? Well, it’s here in FULL force today. It has been a minute since we have done a video game episode so we have plenty of movies and anime to go over with Ian, some great Fortnite talk with Dave, and a lack of a tooth from Tyler. We even take a good ol’ quiz from Ross Rachel Green. But we also have plenty of Speed Racer talk, not just the game but we cover the show as well. We didn’t watch the movie but we totally thought about it. Sit awhile and listen! Speed Racer in My Most Dangerous Adventures!
Speed Racer in My Most Dangerous Adventures Shownotes:
Race Drivin’. Yes, that is the title of this SNES game. The pinnacle of creativity – RACE DRIVIN’! Oh boy, is this game everything we thought it would be based on the name alone. We do actually have some friends that are familiar with it so we bring on Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins and a special letter appearance by Pinball Archmage Chris Edler! Come hear us talk about vasectomies, rogue-likes, Hades, better threats to get your child to behave than Santa Claus, and we do the deepest dive possible into this terrible terrible game. Is it the worst SNES game? Join us and see what you think.
Hey! It’s racing! But not on cars or carts but dirt bikes! This week the Randomizer gives us Dirt Trax FX. Ever heard of Stunt Race FX? This is sort of like it but not horrible in every way. Tyler and Dave have a deep discussion of Freaky Eaters, Dave promises to finish Super Metroid, he just barely loses out on War of the Gems, and we talk racing on dirt bikes. We feel good about this one, come check it out!
“Do you like Street Fighter?” The Randomizer asked. “Of course.” we replied. “Super Mario Kart?” “Yes”. The Randomizer laughed and gave us Street Racer, a game that tried to be both and ended up being neither. Join us for tales of Halloween, googling stuff we want to remember, the best episode of Mary Tyler Moore, friending Hoarders, and love for Fraggle Rock. Enjoy!
Want to know what strange little game as a very interesting backstory? Want to hear isolation stories? Want to hear some guys take a quiz? WELL COME HEAR US TALK ABOUT MICRO MACHINES! And talk about work, children, child hood stories, and all sorts of things. Check it out!
“MERRY CHRISTMAS!” The Randomizer shouted! “On Garbage! On Difficulty! On Copy and Pasting! On Licensing Franchising! Now Cash Grabs! Now Lies and Attrition!” It was then Tyler and Dave heard a rustling and down the chimney came a true piece of coal -Saban’s Power Ranger’s Zeo Battle Racers, to both of their woe. “Well,” said Tyler. “We could bring on the Brit to balance out this dump of a show.” It was then Dave replied with a smile, his nose red from Baja Blasting this very long while, “TO ALL A ROUGH LISTEN TO THIS GAME WE SHOULD ALL PISS IN!”

Captain Gun Nerd Jon and Wizened Sage Ian join us this week to talk about Road Riot 4WD for the SNES. This game is short and terrible…so there’s not an overwhelming amount of game talk. (If we’re being honest here, we probably discuss Gran Turismo 3 more than Road Riot 4WD). But! We’ve got another episode of SODA JERKS (the only podcast within a podcast) on this episode! We also eat some sour candy that was sent in by Mastermold Mike. We take a quiz courtesy of Ross Rachel Green, and there’s plenty of Marvel and Doctor Who talk.
This week we’re talking about Excitebike, the 1985 NES racing game by Nintendo. That’s right. You could say we’re back on track (har-har) to play through the 30 games on the NES Classic. Don’t worry, we also come up with Fantastic Four employment parallels, we talk about the middle school overall craze, there’s a Bike Quiz, and we answer listener voicemail. Continue reading →
