This week Earl and Jurek play a little known game called Psycho Dream for the Super Nintendo! Neither of the guys had ever played this game before, and they come to find out there is a reason for that, which is this game is the very definition of the word "mediocre". Nothing really stands out, as it's a typical platformer of the time, with no real memorable mechanics, music, or art. The game plays fine, and has a few fun moments, but for the most part, it can probably be skipped by most gamers. The guys also discuss some of their favorite music! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

This week Jurek and Earl harness their chi and whoop some 8-bit butt as they play Kung-Fu Heroes on the NES! This game turns out to be fairly fun, but suffers from the same thing as so many games of this era, the crushing difficulty! The guys couldn't even make it past level 1-4! They figured they must not have known about a game mechanic or something, because the previous three levels were fairly easy. However, the music is all 12-bar blues tracks and kind of slaps! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

This week Earl and Jurek play Mighty Bomb Jack on the NES! What an odd little game! The movement takes a little getting used to, but it's surprisingly fluid for an early NES game! The game doesn't seem to be too difficult, but likely requires a great amount of memorization for some of the later levels! The music is... fine. The guys also take a Revelers suggestion and find a new source for discussion questions! It's a great resource, but we'd still prefer to hear about the discussion questions you want us to discuss, so please continue to send them in! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday March 5, 2021. We took a week off and you didn't even notice, Revelers! That means we're all caught up on releasing episodes! Thanks for listening!

This week Jurek and Earl go on yet another caveman romp as they play Prehistorik Man for the Super Nintendo! Very surprisingly, the game turns out to be pretty fun. While it was likely lost to the masses in the sea of generic SNES platformers, this game packs in a lot of charm! It's funny, the music is good, and it looks fantastic! The controls are a little slippery, but you get used to them. The guys also field a Reveler requested discussion question! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

This week Earl and Jurek once again enter the virtual squared-circle as they play Punch-Out! on the NES! This game is an absolute classic and a must-play for any retro game enthusiast! It's incredibly difficult, but can become easier if you learn the proper timing of hits. Spoiler alert! The guys don't have a clue what the proper timing should be for anything in this game, but they still manage to have a blast with it! They also discuss the long awaited return of Nintendo Directs! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

Hey Punks! Are you Tuff E Nuff to listen to a podcast where two dudes play Tuff E Nuff on the Super Nintendo?! We sure hope so, because that's what we're playing this week! This game might just be the very definition of the words "mediocre fighting game". It is... bland, to say the least. Nothing much stands out in this game, except for maybe the absolutely terrible cover art! Jurek and Earl still manage to have a little fun with this game, but it will definitely go into the "no need to ever play again" pile of games. Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

Well, it's been another 10 episodes and it's time for a Mario game! The guys are scraping the bottom of the barrel for more Mario games to play while this pandemic lingers, and this just might be the last one for a while. This week the guys play Wrecking Crew on the NES! While not a traditional Mario game, the two main characters are Mario and Luigi, so it counts! The game actually turns out to be quite fun, if not a little simplistic, but that is to be expected from early NES games. The guys also take a Reveler requested discussion question! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday February 5, 2021. Some day we'll get caught up on releasing episodes, but that day is not today! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

This week Jurek and Earl try their hands at Super Dodgeball on the NES! They play a little single player mode but where the game really shines is in it's 2-player mode! The guys have an absolute blast facing off against each other! The game controls well enough, the music is great, and it looks fantastic. What more could you want out of an NES game?! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday January 29, 2021. We're still an episode behind, but like we've said every week for the past month, we'll get caught up eventually! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

This week Earl and Jurek play a little known game called Super Valis IV for the Super Nintendo! The game is "little known" for a reason. This might just be the most mediocre platformer ever made. It's in no way bad, but it's also in no way good. As Thanos once said: "Perfectly balanced, as all things should be." This game is screaming for some polish. It's like they started making it, ran out of money, and just released whatever bare-bones game was left-over. Not the best game we've played on the show, but also not the worst. Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday January 22, 2021. We're still one episode behind, but we'll get it out there eventually. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

This week Jurek and Earl enter a virtual boat race as they play Eliminator Boat Duel on the NES! Earl was very worried there wasn't enough content in this game to get a full episode out of, but boy, was he wrong! While this game probably wasn't very popular due to it's lackluster title, it turns out it's actually incredibly fun to play! It features surprisingly good music and some genuinely funny dialogue. The guys have a blast playing it! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday January 15, 2021. We're still behind one episode. Hopefully we get it out soon so we're all caught up. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

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!
