The crack of the bat! The roar of the crowd! The boys of summer are back! This week Jurek and Earl take a swing (see what I did there?!) at Baseball on the NES! While not the first baseball video game to exist, this game was the first time baseball could be played in the style we all know and love! It's very primitive but does provide a pretty fun experience! The lack of music and the inability to control your fielders really hinders the game, but the guys manage to get the most out of it! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday September 11, 2020. The audio was a little off in this episode, so apologies if there is some scratchiness. Thanks for listening, Revelers! ~Earl

This week Earl and Jurek take control of a tiny wizard as they play Solomon's Key on the NES! This game seems like it should be really fun but, like so many games of the time, the difficulty makes having fun almost impossible! The game looks and controls fine, but the music is a little lacking. The guys also field a very interesting discussion question! Also, the news of Chadwick Boseman's passing broke while this episode was being recorded, so the guys take a little time to talk about it. Come have a drink with us! WAKANDA FOREVER!!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday August 28, 2020. Since then, Jurek got married! Be sure to tweet him your congratulations @aktirak! Thanks for listening, Revelers! ~Earl

This week Jurek and Earl once again take to the virtual skies as they play Super Earth Defense Force on the Super Nintendo! The game turns out to be a fairly lackluster entry in the shoot em' up genre. It plays fine enough, but the difficulty is just too much! However, the guys take a little time to learn about Earth's actual defense force! They also play a few rounds of guess the poorly described movie! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday August 14, 2020. One more episode to go this week and then we're back on track! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

We're back, Revelers! After an accidental month long hiatus, Earl and Jurek are back playing River City Ransom on the NES! This game is pretty great and it could be argued that it's the best beat em' up on the NES! It's extraordinarily deep for a beat em' up, including many RPG elements not found in many games of the time! The music is also pretty great! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday August 7, 2020. Apologies for the month long break, Revelers! In the interest of full transparency, it was the end of summer and I was feeling lazy, so I didn't publish any episodes. However, it's fall now and we're back on track, or at least we will be by the end of the week! Expect 2 more episodes this week! Thanks for sticking with us, Revelers! ~Earl

This week Jurek and Earl once again enter the virtual squared circle as they face off in Natsume Championship Wrestling for the Super Nintendo! The game turns out to be the true definition of a button masher! At one point Earl is literally just slapping his controller trying to make his wrestler do something! While the controls leave something to be desired, the music is surprisingly phenomenal! The guys also play a few rounds of "Guess the poorly described wrestler". Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday July 31, 2020. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

This week Earl and Jurek strap on their wings and grab their virtual bows as they play Kid Icarus on the NES! The guys end up having some fun with the game, but it's pretty hard to have too much fun when the game is so frustratingly difficult! This game is an oddball in the NES library, as it's one of a few games that actually gets easier as you progress! Despite the difficulty, the game controls great and has a pretty decent soundtrack. Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

This week Jurek and Earl once again take control of a couple of cavemen as they play Joe and Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics on the SNES! The guys actually have a lot of fun with this game! There is a ton of different stuff to do in the game, even though it appears to be a basic platformer. The game features really vivid colors, which makes it look great, and the music is pretty good as well, but might be a little too "caveman'y". The guys also welcome Abbee on the show as she gives them some poorly described movies! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

This week Earl and Jurek take to the skies with Fox, Falco, and the gang as they play Star Fox 2 on the Super Nintendo! This is the most recently released SNES game, as it was officially released in 2017! We're still counting it as a retro game because it was developed in the mid 90s! The game turns out to be just ok. Perhaps with a little more time the guys would have liked it better, but the 3D graphics do not age well and the controls are hard to get used to. Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday July 10, 2020. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

This week Jurek and Earl do something a little different on the show! Instead of playing a game like normal, the guys will each be listing and discussing their personal top 10 video games of all time! Should be a lively discussion! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday June 26, 2020. We took a week off for the 4th of July but we're back! Let us know if you liked this episode and might want more of this type of show in the future! And please send us your own personal top 10 games of all time! It's harder to come up with than you'd think! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

This week Earl and Jurek are revisiting the very first Mario game they played on the show! They will be playing Super Mario Bros. 2 on the NES! They last played this game exactly 200 episodes ago, so the guys thought they'd look at it again, now that they have a little more podcasting experience! As it turns out, this game is still one of the all time greats! It also inspired each of them to come up with a "Top 10 video games of all time" list! Stay tuned for that next week! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday June 19, 2020. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
