Ep. 591 – X-Men 2: Clone Wars

X-Men 2: Clone Wars

The Randomizer tried to throw us X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse which we have already done an episode on, so we countered with a game we were actually interested in: X-Men 2: Clone Wars for the Sega Genesis. IT’S OUR 8th ANNIVERSARY! So we are joined by Brandon of Axelay fame, and his girlfriend Cheryl of Brandon fame, to celebrate. This was a planned thing and not by total coincidence. So gather around and listen to traveling tales, stories of the past, a great package, some X-Men talk, and much more!

Ep. 484 – Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse

Castle of Illusion

OH MAN! ARE YOU GUYS READY TO GET TOTALLY BUCK WILD THIS WEEK?! You know we bring it heavy with Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (and a surprising amount of game talk). Castle of Illusion is the current game of the month over on the Retro Gaming Monthly Facebook group, and we regularly talk about their monthly selections. We figured it was the perfect time to invite Steven Michael (the creator of the RGM group and Nerdy Thursday Super Fan) on to the show to dish about the game with us. Enjoy!

Ep. 475 – Rocket Knight Adventures

Rocket Knight Adventures

We strap on our homemade jet packs and join Sparkster to crush the swine army in Konami’s Rocket Knight Adventures, the 1993 platformer and scrolling shooter for the Sega Genesis. Tyler has the B-A-L-L-S to share an Epic Dollar General story, and we take a Rocket Knight Adventures themed quiz from Bovine Bear Quiz Master Matt Cowan.

Ep. 465 – Castlevania: Bloodlines

Castlevania: Bloodlines

Tyler armed with Vampire Killer and Dave wielding Alucard’s Spear venture forth on the most horrifying vampire hunt ever. Nah just kidding. We just talk about Castlevania: Bloodlines, the 1994 action platformer for the Sega Genesis. It’s the only Castlevania game to appear on the Sega Genesis! Of course we also talk about Twilight and the sexiest verse to ever grace the pages of the Bible. Choco Chica also makes an apperance to administer a quiz that was written by Bovine Bear Matt Cowan.

Ep. 413 – Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Over the last four years we’ve played through IGN’s Top 100 SNES Games of All Time, Dorkly’s Top 25 N64 Games, and this episode marks the end of our journey through Digital Trends’ 25 Best Sega Genesis Games. We wrap the list up with DT’s number one pick: Sonic the Hedgehog 2. It’s a platformer developed by Sega…you might have heard of it. We also announce the next list we’ll be tackling, we double up on quizzes, there’s a story about bears and pancakes, and even a review of the new Coke Zero Sugar.  Continue reading

Ep. 411 – Samurai Shodown

Samurai Shodown

This is a game-heavy episode, which we guess is okay because it’s “technically” a “video game podcast”. Anyway, we’re talking about Samurai Shodown, the second-ranked game on Digital Trends’ list of 25 Best Sega Genesis games. Do not worry, we also talk about tee-ball.  Continue reading

Ep. 407 – Shining Force II (Part 2)

Shining Force II

Hi, we’re just two boys taking a break from the equinarium long enough to record an NSFW podcast episode about a tactical RPG. Yep, that’s right—we’re still gushing about Shining Force II, DigitalTrends’ fourth-ranked best Sega Genesis game. We open a package we received from Pinball Archmage Chris Edler and then talk about anthropomorphic animals who fight devils. Additionally, Tyler tries to shed his spider-sense by having his yes-yes hole washed out. Continue reading

Ep. 404 – Shining Force II (Part 1)

Shining Force 2

It’s been awhile since the Suicide Boys have discussed something from Digital Trends’ list of best Sega Genesis games, but here we are talking about Shining Force II. This 1993 tactical role-playing game is one of Tyler’s favorites and is a completely new experience for Dave. There’s actually lots of game talk in this episode but also a lot of catching up and announcements. Tyler blows Dave’s mind with a skin-related revelation, we open what we think is candy, and Dave plugs the Twitch channel a lot.  Continue reading
