This week Earl and Jurek pick up their chains and lead pipes and hop onto virtual motorcycles as they play Road Rash II on the Sega Genesis! This game turns out to be pretty fun! The controls are tight and the music is fantastic! The guys discover the single player mode is much better than the stuttering multiplayer mode, but they still have a good time racing each other! They also discuss games they might like DE-made into 8 or 16 bit games! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Jurek and Earl join Scrooge McDuck on an epic quest to gather treasure as they play DuckTales on the NES! This game is an absolute classic! It's one of Earl's all time favorites, but Jurek has barely played this game! Can you believe that?! The controls are tight, the music is lit AF, and this game is just plain fun! The guys can't recommend it enough! They also do some more poorly described video games! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Earl and Jurek grab their spy gear and play Mission: Impossible on the Nintendo 64! This game is supposedly loosely based on the 1996 movie of the same name, but in reality it has very little to do with that movie. The player tries to solve missions as Ethan Hunt, the key words here being "tries to". The game is incredibly obtuse, and it takes a while to really figure out what's going on. Needless to say, the guys don't get very far! They also discuss the latest Nintendo Direct! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
NOTE: We are finally all caught up on our backlog of episodes! We'll do our best to keep a normal schedule from here on out! Thanks for listening, Revelers! ~Earl
This week Jurek and Earl pick up the Gameboy Color (actually a Super Gameboy!) and give The Smurf's Nightmare a shot! The game turns out to be fairly entertaining, featuring solid controls and pretty good music. With a little practice, this seems like a game the guys might someday even be able to beat! They also discuss their favorite cartoons of the 80's! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
It's been another 10 episodes so it's time for another Mario game! This time the guys once again get their edu-tainment on as they play Mario's Time Machine on the SNES! While not your standard Mario game, it's actually not too bad! There is a lot of reading involved, but that's to be expected if you want to learn! Despite being a game for younger kids, the guys actually have some fun with this one! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
NOTE: I was mistaken about the last episode, and this one was actually recorded on August 24th, 2019 (Ep. 169 was recorded on August 17th, 2019). So again, apologies if anything we're talking about isn't too current! Thanks for listening, Revelers! ~Earl
Jurek and Earl are back! After an accidental month long hiatus (sometimes life just gets in the way of podcasting!) the guys make their triumphant return by playing Metal Slug on the Neo-Geo! This is the first Neo-Geo game they've played on the podcast and it doesn't disappoint! The game has fast paced action that never stops, a killer soundtrack, and great visuals! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
NOTE: This episode was recorded on August 24th, 2019, so apologies if anything we're chatting about isn't too current! But hey, this is a retro gaming podcast! Everything we talk about is old! Thanks for listening, Revelers!
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!
