Rugrats: Scavenger Hunt / Rugrats in Paris: The Movie (With Lynsey Pennington)

May 20, 2018

This week, we're doing our best to preserve our fond Nicktoon memories in the face of games so bad, they make us envy Melville the bug (look it up). Lynsey Pennington joins us once again to discuss the history of Klasky Csupo's classic cartoon, fumble through the rules of a maddeningly opaque board game, and question why the hell Rugrats in Paris takes place in Paris at all.

Fighting Force 64

April 29, 2018

This week, we're taking it to the streets for the quaintly antiquated brawler FIGHTING FORCE 64! We delve into the history of beat-em-ups, discuss the STREETS OF RAGE sequel that could have been, and prove that winners actually do sometimes use drugs as Steve struggles to podcast behind some substantial painkillers.

Star Wars: Episode 1 - Racer (With Jessica Cartwright and Nicole Vettese)

April 22, 2018

You voted, and we obliged! For our 25th episode, we played STAR WARS: EPISODE 1 - RACER, perhaps the only redeemable thing to emerge from the monstrous disappointment that was PHANTOM MENACE. We're joined by U64 favorites Jessica Cartwright and Nicole Vettese, who help us discuss movie scenes that would benefit from the RACER treatment, speculate about the cumbersome title, and help determine whether kamizake racing is actually a valid strategy.

RAMPAGE Extravaganza! (With Dan Reese)

April 15, 2018

As a classic gaming podcast, we get so few chances to be on the cutting edge of anything, so when the opportunity arises, you know we've gotta jump on it. This week, we played two versions of the arcade classic RAMPAGE (World Tour and Universal Tour), and then, in a bit of a break in format, we take a group trip to the movies to see, and review, the new Dwayne Johnson blockbuster "Rampage!" How does this big-budget tentpole compare to the languid thrills of the original? Tune in to find out! 

Also, we're very excited to announce the winner of our listener contest! You voted, so for our 25th episode, we will be playing: STAR WARS: EPISODE 1 RACER! Thanks to everyone who participated!

Transformers: Beast Wars Transmetals

April 8, 2018

Transform and roll out! This week we played the obscure fighting game based on the forgotten spin-off of one of the most bafflingly popular franchises of all time, TRANSFORMERS: BEAST WARS TRANSMETALS. Join us as we power through as much of the game as our nausea will allow, delve into the history of Blockbuster-exclusive video games, and reveal the sordid truth behind craft-based folk musician Jim Crochet.

Also, there's still one week left on our fabulous LISTERNER POLL, and the race is getting really tight. Remember to cast your vote for the game we'll play on our 25th episode by going to ultra64podcast.com! Polls close April 14th, so jump on it!

Quest 64

April 1, 2018

Happy Easter Fools Day! You'd be forgiven for thinking this week's title is a joke, but I assure you, QUEST 64 is very much real. Join us as we put in some quality time with maybe the least imaginative RPG ever... that is still, by default, one of the best RPGs on the system. 

Also, we are thrilled to announce our new LISTENER'S POLL! You, our loveable listeners, get to choose what game we play for our upcoming 25th episode! We polled Twitter, Facebook, and real life to hear the games you want us to play, and compiled a list of 10 surprisingly diverse games from the back half of our catalogue. Vote today at ultra64podcast.com! Polling stays open until April 14th, and we'll announce the winner on April 15th. Vote today!

Scooby Doo Classic Creep Capers (with Lynsey Pennington)

March 25, 2018

This week we played SCOOBY DOO CLASSIC CREEP CAPERS, which pays like a toddler version of Resident Evil. We delve into the rich history of Scooby Doo as a franchise, debate whether anyone actually likes these cartoons, and then a groundbreaking discovery: a lost episode of "Scooby Doo, Where Are You?" that we managed to find through sheer luck and coincidence!

Hybrid Heaven (with Jeremy Hatfield)

March 18, 2018

This week, we try out a hidden gem, the weird fighter/action/RPG hodgepodge HYBRID HEAVEN. Along with HH superfan Jeremy Hatfield, we discuss the odd fighting system, the out-there, heavily Kojima-esque storyline, and parse through the theory that this has secret roots in the Metal Gear Solid universe.
