War Gods/ Mace: The Dark Age/ Bio F.R.E.A.K.S.

March 11, 2018

We're facing down a triple threat of Midway fighting games this week, each one jockeying to steal Mortal Kombat's crown. Will any of them be successful? You probably already know the answer to that. But still, tune in for burly super soldiers, tempting femme fatales, and faux-fatalities a-plenty. Plus, competing movie trailers, awkward acroynms, and nipple pipes.

It's a golf triple feature this week on Ultra 64! We discuss three games that take to the links, and we're joined once again by Sports Desk Correspondant Nicole Vettese to dig in to all the hot golf action: the glitz, the glamour, the khaki. Could this be the sexiest episode yet? Better believe it, baby.

Vigilante 8/Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense (with Josiah Coolidge)

February 18, 2018

Rev up your engines and strap on your machine guns, because this week we're diving into the sordid history of the briefly-popular car combat subgenre. Steve, Woody, and special guest Josiah Coolidge tackle the TWISTED METAL rip-off VIGILANTE 8 and it's sequel, the aptly-named SECOND OFFENSE. Is the genre worth a second coming, or is it better left on the scrap-heap?

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1-3 (with Betsy Sodaro)

January 28, 2018

Man, do we have a great show this week! Not only are we talking about one of the greatest video game franchises of all time, but we're joined by one of the funniest people in the world: Betsy Sodaro, star of Netflix's "Disjointed" and a favorite guest of some of the best podcasts out there (Comedy Bang Bang, With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus, Off Book, The Dumbbells, Horny 4 Horror), joins us to talk the Hawk. Plus: we build the ultimate THPS soundtrack album, Woody takes Steve to task for missing a core feature, and we dive into the lurid history of a forgotten Christian Slater skateboarding movie.

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter

January 21, 2018

This week, we tackle one of the biggest third-party properties on the system, the first-person shooter classic TUROK: DINOSAUR HUNTER. We delve into the surprisingly storied history of the franchise, and despair at the awkwardness of early first-person platforming.

Brunswick Circuit Pro Bowling/Milo’s Astro Lanes/Super Bowling (With Nicole Vettese)

January 14, 2018

It's a bowling triple feature, and we're thrilled for two reason: firstly, it means we get to check in with our sports desk correspondant Nicole Vettese! And secondly, it means we never have to talk about bowling games again! The games this week run the gamut, from blandly inoffensive to actively awful, but hey, we had a good time talking about it.

Castlevania/Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness

January 7, 2018

This week, we double-dip into the legendary Konami franchise's first foray into the 3-D realm. Thrill as we tackle giant skeleton apes, transform into an impotent werewolf, and battle the most insidious enemy of all: New Year's hangovers.
