One day you’re just a normal kid, going to school, and the next, you’re the chosen one using your psychic powers to defeat an unknowable Lovecraftian being with friends you never met while your annoying neighbor kid is stealing your helicopter. And before you know it, you’re a robot fighting bionic krakens just to get a cool baseball bat. And then you’re listening to a podcast about Earthbound.
Devils Never Cry! That’s what we learned at the end of Devil May Cry 1, but apparently, between that game and this one, Dante also decided that Devils should never emote. No sarcasm, no quips, no nothing. Also, if you’re a Devil, combat should be super easy and boring and your upgrade tree should be simple and number based. Thank God Devil May Cry 3 is a prequel.

Before there was Call of Duty every year, there was Mega Man every year, the shooter of the late 80s/early 90s. What new, exciting Mans will the Blue Bomber face this time? What face will Zach make when he hears about the weakness chart? And who could possibly be behind the wave of robot related crime this year? Listen to find out!
Did you ever went fast? Did you ever went so fast that you created a kind of bad game with awful level design that doesn’t actually let you go fast at all? Did you ever went so fast you met an echidna who was kind of a jerk and you felt should really be a playable character for some reason? Did you ever went so fast you started to realize maybe Sonic was never good at all and Sonic 2 was just a huge fluke? In this weeks episode, we went fast.
This week, we just need to relax a little. And what could be more relaxing than waking up at the crack of dawn, choosing your lure, going out on the boat, and casting your line, waiting, just waiting, for that FISH!!!!!!!!!? It’s Sega Bass Fishing.
What’s your favorite ninja weapon? The classic sword? The deadly sai? The banned in England nunchucks? Or perhaps the bow staff with its incredible reach? All of these pail in comparison to the ninja answer to the Belmont’s whip: The Kunai with Chain. Learn all about it in this episode!
A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away… is a phrase that might get us in trouble with Disney. And since we don’t want to mess with the mouse, this game takes place in the future. Where arcades are popular, and controls are confusing, and no one can find the button to fire the missiles. Who will survive? Listen to find out.
It was a dark, rainy night, the dim glow of the street lamp the only bit of white pushing back against the black outside my office. That’s when this game walked in. With bullet time as far as the eye could see and comic book cut scenes for days. We played it, then recorded this podcast.
In what I think is one of our best episodes ever, we talk about that weird time that Square and Disney thought a crossover between Final Fantasy and…. all of Disney made sense. Cloud vs Hercules. Squal vs Peter Pan. Moogles vs. Pooh. None of these will be answered.

Well, some nations get grumpy if they don’t have all the magical stones that keep the realm in balance in the morning.

The only way to find out is to listen!
Here’s a sentence that only makes sense in the year 2002. “Wouldn’t it be better if the NSA had highly trained stealth operatives they could dispatch with little oversight”?

They’d have to climb on pipes, and no when they’re in light, and have thigh muscles so strong they could support their entire body weight with them. If you think you have what it takes, give this episode a listen.
War. War never changes. You’re always just flying around in your single aircraft, you against an entire invading enemy force. Maybe they’re aliens? They’re probably aliens. Your only allies are two little drones by your side. Not even an imperiled frog or cocky falcon to get your back. Its just you against all of space, in Super Earth Defense Force.
