Episode 172 : Atari 2600 Feast!

In honor of Thanksgiving this year, we're talking all about 4 different games that have (sometimes very loosely tied) food related themes to them for the Atari 2600!  We're talking about Fast Food, Burgertime, Joust, and Plaque Attack!  How does Joust make any sense to add here?  Listen to find out!

For our second episode of #retroween2022, we cover a game from the other main horror series - we're talking Resident Evil 4!  Originally created for the Nintendo GameCube, this game has been on pretty much every console since, so it's clearly a fan favorite.  But will it be one of ours?  Find out as we revisit this game with the assistance of our pal Logan!

Episode 168:Tomba! 2 The Evil Swine Return (PlayStation)

As requested by patron "Toy", we're looking at the sequel to Tomba!, the Playstation platformer we covered way back in 2016.  Tomba! 2 : The Evil Swine Return was a second chance for Tomba to become a household name, but as we are all aware that didn't quite happen.  Still -- how does this game hold up now? Listen to see what we think.

We also take on a batch of listener mail about discontinued food items, achievements of the personal kind, game rumors, and more!

Want to skip right to throwing pigs in bags?  Jump to the 7:40 mark!

Episode 167: Popful Mail - Magical Fantasy Adventure (Sega CD)

We're back from our unintentional summer vacation to cover a patron request -- Popful Mail: Magical Fantasy Adventure for the Sega CD! This action adventure from Falcom was released in the US by Working Designs, and many consider it to be a "must play" title for the add-on.  But how does it hold up today?

Also discussed - a ton of things, in a very aggressive reader mail segment.

Want to skip right to the game?  Start at the 9:45 mark!

As mentioned in the reader mail, here's the Ninja Baseball Spirits link : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bust/ninja-baseball-spirits-1/posts

Episode 166 : Oops! All Mail (Summer 2022 Edition)

We've gotten a lot of mail from our listeners, and we are way behind.  So -- we're dedicating this episode to clear some of this out to make room for more current emails! Don't worry-- we won't do these very often, but if you keep writing, we're gonna answer you anyway we can!

Episode 165 : Jackie Chan’s Action Kung Fu (TurboGrafx-16)

This time we return to Jeremy P's beloved TurboGrafx-16, for a martial arts action game, Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu! This was a port of an NES game that Jeremy G reviewed over on our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0z2So-cRQOA) but this is an upgrade in many ways-- but is it worth checking out now?  We took on the sorcerer to let you know!

Also discussed, what happened to "What We've Been Playing", most regrettable purchase, and we give you some interesting food combos.
