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 thi…
 
The crack of the bat! The roar of the crowd! The boys of summer are back! This week Jurek and Earl take a swing (see what I did there?!) at Baseball on the NES! While not the first baseball video game to exist, this game was the first time baseball could be played in the style we all know and love! It's very primitive but does provide a pretty fun …
 
This week Earl and Jurek take control of a tiny wizard as they play Solomon's Key on the NES! This game seems like it should be really fun but, like so many games of the time, the difficulty makes having fun almost impossible! The game looks and controls fine, but the music is a little lacking. The guys also field a very interesting discussion ques…
 
This week Jurek and Earl once again take to the virtual skies as they play Super Earth Defense Force on the Super Nintendo! The game turns out to be a fairly lackluster entry in the shoot em' up genre. It plays fine enough, but the difficulty is just too much! However, the guys take a little time to learn about Earth's actual defense force! They al…
 
We're back, Revelers! After an accidental month long hiatus, Earl and Jurek are back playing River City Ransom on the NES! This game is pretty great and it could be argued that it's the best beat em' up on the NES! It's extraordinarily deep for a beat em' up, including many RPG elements not found in many games of the time! The music is also pretty …
 
This week Jurek and Earl once again enter the virtual squared circle as they face off in Natsume Championship Wrestling for the Super Nintendo! The game turns out to be the true definition of a button masher! At one point Earl is literally just slapping his controller trying to make his wrestler do something! While the controls leave something to b…
 
This week Earl and Jurek strap on their wings and grab their virtual bows as they play Kid Icarus on the NES! The guys end up having some fun with the game, but it's pretty hard to have too much fun when the game is so frustratingly difficult! This game is an oddball in the NES library, as it's one of a few games that actually gets easier as you pr…
 
This week Jurek and Earl once again take control of a couple of cavemen as they play Joe and Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics on the SNES! The guys actually have a lot of fun with this game! There is a ton of different stuff to do in the game, even though it appears to be a basic platformer. The game features really vivid colors, which makes it look grea…
 
This week Earl and Jurek take to the skies with Fox, Falco, and the gang as they play Star Fox 2 on the Super Nintendo! This is the most recently released SNES game, as it was officially released in 2017! We're still counting it as a retro game because it was developed in the mid 90s! The game turns out to be just ok. Perhaps with a little more tim…
 
This week Jurek and Earl do something a little different on the show! Instead of playing a game like normal, the guys will each be listing and discussing their personal top 10 video games of all time! Should be a lively discussion! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday June 26, 2020. We took a week off for the …
 
This week Earl and Jurek are revisiting the very first Mario game they played on the show! They will be playing Super Mario Bros. 2 on the NES! They last played this game exactly 200 episodes ago, so the guys thought they'd look at it again, now that they have a little more podcasting experience! As it turns out, this game is still one of the all t…
 
This week Jurek and Earl play two classic games on the NES! First up is Donkey Kong Jr.! This game is a must-play! The port to the NES was very well done, unlike the Atari 2600 port, which is a hot mess! Seriously, go watch some video of that port... it's barely recognizable as DK Jr.! The guys then try out the much less loved Donkey Kong 3! This g…
 
This week Earl and Jurek head to the wild west, or rather a sci-fi version of the wild west, as they play Wild Guns on the SNES! The game turns out to be pretty fun, despite it's crazy hard difficulty! The guys would both recommend playing this game with a friend, because it seems like it might be impossible to complete alone! Difficulty aside, the…
 
This week Jurek and Earl grab their Diskarmors and head off to save the world as they play Rygar on the NES! This is one of those rare games that neither of the guys have ever played before! It is a very early metroid-vania type game and actually turns out to be pretty fun! The music is somewhat lacking, but it controls well. The game's difficulty …
 
This week Earl and Jurek grab their virtual rackets and play two tennis games for the SNES! First up is Super Tennis! This game turns out to be pretty fun, but a little lackluster. It's a perfectly fine tennis game, but you might not get much out of it in today's day and age. The guys then try out Smash Tennis, AKA Super Family Tennis! Now this is …
 
This week Jurek and Earl chase a radioactive frog down a hole as they play Blaster Master for the NES! This game is a must-play NES game and it turns out this is Jurek's first time playing it! The game is fantastic all around! It has intuitive controls and the music is outstanding! While the difficulty can be a bit much, it always feels do-able! Ta…
 
This week Earl and Jurek take to the skies as they play Pilotwings for the SNES! Roughly 200 episodes ago the guys played Pilotwings 64 and now they decided to check out it's predecessor! The game is extremely fun, although the controls can take a bit of getting used to. It's very touchy and can be a little hard to control. That said, the game look…
 
This week Jurek and Earl continue doing the podcast quarantine style as they play Kirby Super Star for the SNES! This game is actually a collection of 8 different games, and some turn out much more fun than others! As a whole though, this game is very good! The fun pretty much never stops and it has a kick ass sound track to go with it! Come have a…
 
This week Earl and Jurek had big plans to play a Sega Genesis game quarantine style, but as it turns out, the Sega Genesis Classics game on the Switch is absolute trash! That means the guys had to pull an audible and play something else! They decided on Vice: Project Doom for the NES! The game actually turns out to be very fun. It features several …
 
This week Jurek and Earl continue doing the podcast quarantine style as they play Super Punch-Out on the SNES! While neither of the guys are particularly good at the game, they manage to have a lot of fun with it! This game looks really good and the music is top notch. The controls are fine, but perhaps they should have given the game a better tuto…
 
This week Earl and Jurek once again come at you quarantine style as they celebrate the 200th episode of the show by playing Dr. Mario for the NES! The guys figured it was the perfect game to play during this public health crisis! Dr. Mario is an absolute joy to play! While neither of the guys are particularly good at puzzle games, they both have ma…
 
This week Jurek and Earl are coming at you quarantine style! The guys are together but separate for this episode (and the foreseeable future) as they play Double Dragon II on the NES! Or rather, they play it via the Nintendo Switch NES Online App! The guys find this game to be pretty fun! The music is pretty great and it looks good for an NES game.…
 
This week Earl and Jurek play Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse on the Sega Genesis! The game turns out to be pretty great! It looks gorgeous, it controls well, and the difficulty seems to be just right! If the guys had to make one complaint, it might be that the music is just a little lackluster, but it's still quite serviceable! Come have …
 
This week Jurek and Earl play Shock Troopers on the Neo-Geo! As it turns out, this game was never actually released for consoles back in the day and was ported from the arcade years later, which is the version we are playing. The game turns out to be incredibly fun! The music is top-notch and it looks fantastic! If the guys had one gripe, it would …
 
This week Earl and Jurek are joined by their friend Andrew and the three of them play Fester's Quest on the NES! This game was recommended by Andrew due to his nostalgia for the game! As you can imagine, the guys have a pretty tough go at it, considering this game is notoriously hard! While they don't get very far, the game turns out to be rather e…
 
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…
 
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 …
 
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, …
 
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 complain…

This week Jurek and Earl take control of the coolest T-Rex around as they play Radical Rex on the Super Nintendo! This is an ultra rare moment on the podcast, in which Jurek has played the game before and Earl has never even heard of it! The guys find the game pretty fun, even if it is just another mascot platformer from the 90's! The game looks, p…
 
This week Earl and Jurek play a classic in the fighting game genre: King of Fighters 98' on the Neo-Geo! They have a pretty good time duking it out with each other, but the computer is HARD! There are many mechanics to this game that take a while to learn, but eventually the guys get the hang of it. Despite the difficulty, the controls are tight an…
 
This week Jurek and Earl take a trip to a little place known as Oddworld as they play Oddworld: Abe's Odyssee on the Playstation 1! The concept of this game seems really cool: help Abe rescue his people and escape the evil corporation who enslaved everyone. However, in classic Retro Gaming Revelry style, the guys get absolutely nowhere in this game…
 
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…
 
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 recomm…
 
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 …
 
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 t…
