This week Earl and Jurek try out Animaniacs on the Gameboy! The game is a fun little platformer that requires switching between Yakko, Wakko, and Dot to get through! The controls are tight and the music is good, but some of the levels have some less than desirable parts to them. The guys also discuss what character in the Mario universe they would most like to sit down and have a drink with! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Jurek and Earl jump into the virtual squared circle as they play WWF Royal Rumble on the Sega Genesis! This episode is a little odd in that this wasn't the game the guys intended to play. They had to pull an audible when the cartridge for WWF Super Wrestlemania didn't work. That means there are no 3 questions, no music break, and the research on this game is very sparse. Despite all that, the game turns out to be pretty fun, even if it's controls are pretty wonky! The guys also discuss who would be on their Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
Happy New Year, Revelers! To celebrate, Earl and Jurek have popped the champagne and dive into a Reveler requested game: Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow for the Super Nintendo! The game looks absolutely fantastic and the music is pretty great! The controls, however, leave a little to be desired! The guys also discuss their New Years resolutions from last year and make new ones for this year! Come have a drink with us! Happy 2020! Welcome to the future!
Ho Ho Ho! This is our Holiday Spectacular episode! Jurek and Earl are joined by their friend John and the three of them try and get into the holiday spirit by playing The Grinch on the Playstation 1! While the game isn't super engaging, the guys manage to have a little fun with it! This is a rare case in which the game is too easy for adults and much too difficult for it's target audience: kids. The guys also discuss their favorite Christmas songs! Come have a drink with us! Happy Holidays, Revelers!
This week, in honor of the release of the new Star Wars movie, Earl and Jurek play Super Star Wars on the Super Nintendo! Both the guys have played this game many times in the past, so they knew what they were getting into! This game is notoriously hard and it doesn't fail to live up to it! If the game were hard because of the gameplay, that would be one thing, but instead it's hard because the controls are so clunky! But hey, at least the music is banging! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Jurek and Earl are joined by long-time friend of the podcast Brent! The three of them attempt to take on the challenge of Blue's Journey on the Neo-Geo! None of the guys had ever heard of this game, but that can be attributed to nobody in the world owning a Neo-Geo in the 90s! The game turns out to be quite fun, but very challenging! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Earl and Jurek take control of a lovable crocodile as they play Croc: Legend of the Gobbos on the Playstation 1! The guys find the game pretty fun, despite it's incredibly confusing controls! The game looks as good as it can for being one of the first 3D platformers and the music is great! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Jurek and Earl try their hands at the stock market as they play Wall Street Kid on the NES! Neither of the guys have played this game before and both thought the game was a platformer! Boy, were they surprised to find out the game revolves around buying and selling stocks! They actually have a pretty fun time figuring this game out! Even after all these years, the NES can still surprise them! The guys also completely forgot to talk about the newest Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer, so stay tuned after the show for their thoughts on that! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week marks another 10 episodes, which means it's time for another Mario game! Earl and Jurek are joined by their friends Abbee and Emily and the four of them play a rousing game of Mario Party on the N64! The guys seem to enjoy the game a bit more than their guests, but everyone has a good time! And, in an almost unprecedented turn of events, all four of them remained friends after playing! They also discuss a rather odd "would you rather" question from one of the Revelers! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
This week Jurek and Earl enjoy a little run and gun action as they play Gunstar Heroes on the Sega Genesis! While this game is considered a classic by many, neither of the guys have ever played much of it! It turns out the game is incredibly fun, and is deemed a classic for a reason! The graphics, controls, and music are top notch! A minor complaint would be the games difficulty, but that could be said about most games played on this show! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
