40 Winks

January 19, 2019

You're not dreaming: there's a brand new Nintendo 64 game on the market, and this week, we're playing it! 40 WINKS, the long-gestating port of a 1999 Playstation game, has finally arrived on the N64 after a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign. We decide if this 3-D platformer was worth the wait!

Super Mario 64

January 12, 2019

This is it! The big one! We've reached our 64th episode, so it felt only right to celebrate with the game that truly defines what it means to be 64. We travel into the Mushroom Kingdom, exploring the rich history of the MARIO franchise and dispelling some of the myths that have surrounded the series since the beginning. Oh dear lord, this game is just so good...

We've got another surprise bonus episode for you guys! Since we just played our 100th game for the show, we thought it might be fun to go back and acknowledge some of the best and worst of the show so far. We debate over which games had the best graphics, music, and multiplayer, as well as the bad games we secretly love, the weirdest games in the library so far, and many more categories!

Forsaken 64 (with Tyler Detrick)

December 29, 2018

Another day, another game with baffling cover art we need our audience to interpret. This week, we played FORSAKEN 64, and since we had no idea what it was about, we asked our beloved audience to send in their imagined plot descriptions, and man did they deliver, with some of the smartest and funniest plots we've heard yet. We're joined by the hilarious Tyler Detrick, who helps us parse out just what FORSAKEN is about.

December 15, 2018

Prepare to crack your virtual bullwhips and don’t forget your fedora, because this week we’re swinging into action with everyone’s favorite archeologist/ adventurer with INDIANA JONES AND THE INFERNAL MACHINE. Indy’s first foray into 3-D was bafflingly a Blockbuster exclusive on home consoles; did the poor distribution give Indy’s game a raw deal, or does it deserve to be lost in a warehouse?

Monopoly (with Katie Bray and Danielle Rupinski)

December 1, 2018

This week, we're joined by Danielle Rupinski (owner of the Rook and Rogue board game pub) and Katie Bray (all around awesome person) to discuss the N64 adaptation of MONOPOLY, the world's most famous board game. Join us as we dig into the sordid history of the game, it's evolution from a socialist teaching tool to a capitalist fever dream, and it's reputation as a destroyer of families.

All-Star Baseball 99 - 2001 (with Josiah Coolidge and Dan Reese)

November 24, 2018

We're trying something a little different this week! Since baseball is inherently kind of boring to talk about, and since we've already covered it once before, this week Steve and Woody provide running commentary as Josiah Coolidge and Dan Reese play ALL-STAR BASEBALL live in the studio! Expect thrilling action, rambling non-sequitors, inappropriate references to 9/11, and lots of cheesy announcer voices!
