Surprise! We're taking a slight detour off of the Nintendo 64 to talk about an all-time classic for the Gamecube, SUPER SMASH BROS MELEE! This episode is brought to you by our guest Jordan Collins, who subscribed as a Superstar-tier Patron over on Patreon! Jordan joins us to talk about the thriving competitive scene, the series' evolution into an interactive Nintendo museum, and if this is the best SMASH game of all time.

Falcon PUNCH! This week we're talking about the granddaddy of them all, the Nintendo fighting game that would launch one of the major franchises in gaming, SUPER SMASH BROS!

V-Rallly Edition ‘99 / Roadsters / Rally Challenge 2000

February 15, 2020

It's everyone's favorite, a trio of random racing games! We played V-RALLY EDITION 99, ROADSTERS, and RALLY CHALLENGE 2000, three largely unremarkable racing games that nonetheless gave us an opportunity to learn about the insane sport that is rally racing! Plus, we got some amazing discussion questions from listeners to help us fill the time! And next week, we'll be playing one of the N64's biggest titles, SUPER SMASH BROS!

Virtual Chess 64 / Virtual Pool 64

February 8, 2020

This week on the show, we're doffing our smoking jackets and retiring to the parlor for some fine brandy, rich cigars, and games of gentlemanly temperament. Which is to say, we played VIRTUAL CHESS 64 and VIRTUAL POOL 64! Discover shockingly ugly graphics! Bizarrely terrible cameras! And pretty good versions of their respective games?

ClayFighter 63 1/3 / ClayFighter: Sculptor’s Cut

February 1, 2020

Fans of tortured clay puns, your day has come! This week we're talking about CLAYFIGHTER 63 1/3, the third entry in the oddball parody series, and CLAYFIGHTER: SCULPTOR'S CUT, the rarest and most valuable game on the entire N64! We get our hands dirty talking about the history of clay animation, take the developers to task for not spellchecking their manual, and figure exactly what SCULPTOR'CUT offers for our extra several hundred dollars.

January 18, 2020

This week, we're making two of pop culture's most iconic ducks face off in a no-holds-barred fight to the finish! Actually, we're playing two pleasant, low-stakes platformers, and we're having a good time doing it. Duck expert Dan Reese and duck novice Zoe Bronstein join us to talk the history of the two famous ducks, find a pretty decent CRASH BANDICOOT analog on the N64, and delve into some of the more... unsavory elements of a duck's anatomy.
