This week Jurek and Earl once again take control of everyone's favorite little puffball as they play Kirby's Dreamland 3 on the Super Nintendo! This was one of the last games released for the SNES and it really shines! The art style is fantastic and the music is top-notch! The guys get so into playing the game that the episode runs a little long, but they just HAD to beat the whole first world! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

Well, it was fun while it lasted, Revelers, but Earl and Jurek are, once again, back to recording remotely. This week the guys play S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team on the NES! Hilarious title aside, this game turns out to be pretty fun! It controls well and the music is great. It's main downfall is level 3, in which you ascend in an elevator at high speeds and it makes you feel like you're having a seizure. Also, as you can imagine, we learn a lot about poop in this episode! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday November 13, 2020. We're playing it safe again and recording remotely until the USA can get this virus under control. Thanks for bearing with us, Revelers. We can get through this! Please wear your masks and stay safe out there! Thanks for listening! ~Earl and Jurek
This week is one of the super rare times in which neither Jurek or Earl have ever played the game! The guys try out Alisia Dragoon on the Sega Genesis! Despite not knowing how to pronounce Alisia, the guys manage to have some fun with this game! It's quite difficult, but it looks great and the music is superb! The guys do a little bit of cheating to be able to get anywhere in this game, but even the cheat codes are difficult to enter! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

This week Earl and Jurek step onto the virtual pitch as they play Super Sidekicks on the Neo Geo! Neither of the guys had ever played this game before and it turns out that is a shame, because this game turns out to be super fun! It's way more fun than it has any right to be, especially for an early 90's soccer game! This game is arcade soccer at it's finest. The controls are simple, the music is good, and did we mention it was mega fun?! Because it is! The guys also field a Reveler requested discussion question! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday Oct. 30, 2020. Sorry if we're a little loud when we first start playing the game. We weren't expecting it to be as fun as it was and we got super excited. Thanks for listening, Revelers! ~Earl
It's that time of year again... time for our Halloween Spook-tacular episode! To celebrate the spooky season, Jurek and Earl play Ghosts & Goblins on the NES! As you can probably imagine, the guys don't get very far in this game, however, through the magic of cheat codes the guys actually manage to beat the game! What?!?! But they definitely cheated to do it, so it doesn't count! The game is extremely difficult, and is probably the definition of the term "Nintendo hard", but that doesn't mean it isn't fun! The guys also actually have a Reveler requested discussion question! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

This week Earl and Jurek continue to play Donkey Kong 64 on the Nintendo 64! Last week the guys managed to get one whole golden banana (out of 201!), so needless to say there is a bit more of the game to explore! They now have all the Kong's unlocked, so at least they got to try out each different character. Everything in this game takes a while to do, so they really didn't get much farther, but it's really about the friends they made along the way! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

This week Jurek and Earl play the very first part, literally only the beginning, of Donkey Kong 64 for the Nintendo 64! Turns out it takes quite a while to get ANYWHERE in this game! That said, the game is pretty fun while also being fairly clunky. Mario 64 it is not. The guys still manage to have a good time while getting nowhere! The plan is to continue playing DK64 next week after getting a little farther into the game. Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! The boys are back in the studio! Earl and Jurek are absolutely delighted to be playing ToeJam and Earl on the Sega Genesis while they once again record together in the same room! The guys are thrilled to be playing a game that isn't on a Nintendo system! And what a game it is! ToeJam and Earl is delightfully weird and there really isn't any other game quite like it! The music is fantastic and about as funky as you can get! It looks great and all the enemies ooze personality! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday October 2, 2020. Thank you so much for bearing with us during quarantine. Hopefully we'll be back to recording in person full time, but if we have to go back into lockdown, at least we know how to continue the show! Thanks for listening, Revelers! We appreciate every one of you! ~Earl and Jurek
This week Jurek and Earl don their ninja outfits and try and save the world as they play Shadow of the Ninja on the NES! This game might truly be the definition of a hidden gem! It was lost in Ninja Gaiden's shadow, but it's truly a fun game! The difficulty is high, but there are some cheats that make things a little easier! The weapons are fun to use and the music is some of the best the guys have heard on the NES! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

This week Earl and Jurek take another look at Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island for the SNES! The guys played this game way back in episode 70, but Earl's Super Nintendo was acting up and not reading the game properly, which was causing the game to freak out! The guys thought they'd take another look at the game so they could play it properly this time! Spoiler alert: it's still a classic and a must-play game! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
