This week Earl and Jurek try their very best to break some combos as they play Killer Instinct on the Super Nintendo! This game is pretty great! The controls and movement of the characters are all really slick, plus it features the most epically obnoxious announcer of all time! ULTRAAAAAA COMBOOOOOOO!! The guys also play a few more rounds of poorly described video games! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Jurek and Earl take a look at Greendog: The Beached Surfer Dude for the Sega Genesis! This is a game that neither of the guys had ever heard of until now, but that's not because it's a bad game! It turns out the game is actually pretty fun, if not a little generic. The guys have a good time trying to help Greendog get rid of a cursed medallion so he can surf again! Despite the bonkers story, the game controls pretty well and the music is really great! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week the guys play Donkey Kong Country 2 on the Super Nintendo and their opinions on the game could not be more different! Jurek really loves this game and ranks it in his top 5 of all time! Earl, on the other hand, can't stand this game and gets really worked up and salty about it! The guys have a heated debate about the merits of this game, and to no one's suprise, they don't change each other's minds! It's possible the word "garbage" is said in this episode more times than it's EVER been said in an hour! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
NOTE: Earl sends his deepest apologies to the Revelers for the extreme negativity in this episode. He'll keep things positive (for the most part!) from now on! Thanks for listening, Revelers!
This week Jurek and Earl take control of those lovable little dragons Bub and Bob as they play Bust-a-Move 4 on the Playstation 1! This game turns out to be pretty fun, although Jurek is a MUCH better puzzle game player than Earl! The game has some interesting mechanics that set it apart from other Bust-a-Move games which makes it pretty unique! The guys have a great time trying to help Bub and Bob bring color back to their world! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Earl and Jurek practice their sharpshooting skills as they play 2 light gun games on the NES! First up is everybody's favorite zapper game: Duck Hunt! This game is an absolute classic! Fun on all accounts! The only thing it lacks is some engaging music, but that's easy to look past. What's not easy to look past is that frickin' dog laughing at you all the time! Then the guys pop in Wild Gunman and have some old west style duels! This game is not quite as fun as Duck Hunt, but the guys discover Gang mode is where it's at! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Jurek and Earl see what Sega's failed mascot is all about as they play Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle for the Sega Genesis! Woof! This game is... a game, that's for sure! The game is pretty lackluster at every turn. The music is subpar, the physics are off, and it's overall not very fun. The guys also discuss which video game lady they would marry! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Earl and Jurek do their best unicycle impersonations as they play Uniracers on the Super Nintendo! This game is bananas! It's super fast, you can perform sweet tricks, and the music is top notch! This game was recommended to us by Reveler Alex, so thanks for that Alex! The guys also do another round of F/M/K! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
NOTE: There are a couple roughly 10 second chunks with poor audio. We'll get these gremlins out of our system, we promise! Thanks for listening, Revelers!
This week Jurek and Earl are back playing Conker's Bad Fur Day on the Nintendo 64! The first time around didn't go super great, so how do the guys fare this time? Short answer is... not great. Conker seems like a game that is much more suited to a single player experience where the player is really paying attention to the story. The guys can see the charm in the game, but there really doesn't seem like there's that much to do. Perhaps they just didn't get far enough? Either way, give the game a try! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
It's once again time for Earl and Jurek to play a Mario game! This week the guys play Super Mario Land on the Nintendo Gameboy! The original handheld Mario game! How does it hold up today? Pretty well, but it does have some flaws. The guys are able to get through a few levels but quickly find out the "no continue" feature is quite detrimental to getting anywhere in this game! The game features some great music, though, so maybe that makes up for it? Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
NOTE: Please listen until the very end to hear Super Mario Land by the Ambassadors of Funk! Thanks for listening, Revelers!
After missing a week the boys are back! Jurek and Earl make their triumphant return by playing the classic and controversial Conker's Bad Fur Day on the N64! As it turns out, there is a lot of story to start off the game, so it takes a while to really get going. Once the guys get into the game, it becomes clear that it could be fun, but they just didn't have enough time with it! They'll be doing part 2 of Conker's Bad Fur Day in a just a few episodes, so they can really get a feel for the game! They also discuss Nintendo's E3 presentation! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
NOTE: There are NO audio issues with this episode! Hurray! Thanks for bearing with us for the last few episodes! We think we got all the kinks worked out. Thanks for listening, Revelers!
