All Raw Calls (Julia)! That’s right, the calls are back! We needed some more time to play some SNES Wrestling Games so we decided to have Captain Gun Nerd Jon Turley on the show and take oh so many beautiful calls. We have a huge backlog but we are incredibly appreciative that so many people would call so much, it’s truly amazing. So thank all of you so much for giving us some great content and commentary that are these calls. Please sit awhile and listen to all your calls!
Brunswick World Championship Tournament! That practically screaming bowling! And look at all those very recognizable faces on that not at all terrible cover art! It came out so late in the SNES’ life cycle that you know it was of the utmost quality and we are so very blessed by the Randomizer to play this gem of a game. But we also do a draft, visit Ian’s Horror Hole and get a little anime in our “Animay I?” segment. Like, love, hate or feel neutral about bowling, sit down awhile and listen to this one, won’t you please? Brunswick World Championship Tournament!

90s KAWASAKI FANS REJOICE! EVERYONE KNOWS THOSE SUPER POPULAR KAWASAKI GAMES ON THE SUPER NINTENDO! WHAT?! NO?! I am soooo surprised. These may be pretty different games but they both have Kawasaki in the title so we’re going to do them together, and it’s a good thing we did. So please join us to talk Picard Season 3, Star Trek Strange New World, some Urkel, some Akira, and even do a draft. We then do as deep of a dive as we can safely do on both these games, which isn’t very deep. So please, sit awhile and listen!
Aerobiz has arrived and that means the great return of Pinball Archmage Chris Edler! To celebrate, we do a Movie Theater Snacks draft, talk anime in our officially christened segment, “Animay I?” We talk some television, visit Ian’s Horror Hole and do a deep dive in Aerobiz and it’s much better sequel Aerobiz Supersonic. Everyone loves Chris Edler, so sit awhile and listen!
Pinocchio, right? Everyone loved Aladdin, Goof Troop, Mickey’s Magical Quest – surely Pinocchio is right up there too? You did know there was a Pinocchio game, didn’t you? Since it came out at the tail end of the SNES’ lifespan. Well, if you’re in that slim minority – don’t you worry. We break down all the ins and outs of this one and maybe do a draft along the way. We talk some anime, some horror, some television, but we really do go through this game and have plenty to say about it,
Fresh off our Actual Play D&D game we are diving right back in with…Super Play Action Football. Hurrah. Have you heard of this game? You probably saw it on the SNES box and that was about it. Don’t worry, we will cover all the rest you need to know about this game on today’s episode. We get back in it with a draft, talk anime, talk TikTok, discuss a new book and more. Some please, come sit awhile and listen to some old guys talk about an old game outside their forte – but make it as best as they can. Super Play Action Football!
We’re back to a game and this time it’s Brandish! Heard of it? Maybe? We certainly had not. It’s got some pretty cool box art, do you think that translates into the game play? Check us out and see but before that we catch up on all the stuff that has been going on while we have been recording sessions of the Scott Pilgrim inspired D&D game. We talk about all the anime that Ian is indulging in, what media Dave has been enjoying, and how many papers that Tyler has been having to write. There is even a very special package at the end where we sample all sorts of stuff sent to us by Mr. Puzzles himself, Backlog Banisher Dane! So come sit awhile and listen to us babble about Brandish!
Pause on Backwards vs The World! The band returns again this week (it’s a shorter episode, we had to double up AND this is the last regular episode before we hit the Finale) and settles some scores. Benji heads to woods to see about freeing this mantle of power from the claws of Malar, Lem gets some valuable DVD-Rs, Kenny finds out he has a very special skill, and Liz get a very very powerful weapon in her hands (in the DM’s retrospective opinion). Lots of time gets spent reading books! LeVar Burton is pleased! Loose ends are tied up and we prepare to go into the two part finale, so come sit awhile and listen.
