Bass Hunter 64 / Bassmasters 2000

May 11, 2019

Gather up your worms and head on down to the ol' fishin' hole, because this week we're going fishing! We played BASS HUNTER 64 and BASSMASTERS 2000, the two sport fishing games for the N64, and we had a hell of time doing it! Join us to discuss our personal fishing histories, argue over the best and worst fishing games, and generally gripe about how hard it is to catch bass!

April 27, 2019

Get your kit on, ya hooligans, because this week we're talking about soccer for the first time! Jeremy Hatfield returns to help us kick our way through the three games in Konami's INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR SOCCER series on the N64! Plus, we discuss the worldwide popularity of the sport, why it's been slow to catch on in the states, and just who is the best country in the world: Mexico or Portugal?

Once again we find ourselves playing a weird game we've never heard of, and once again our amazing listeners stepped up with their own creative, funny plot summaries for SPACE STATION SILICON VALLEY!

Starcraft 64 (with Scott Burger)

Starcraft 64 (with Scott Burger)

April 6, 2019

How many video games can claim to be the national pastime for an entire country? STARCRAFT sure can; Blizzard's monumental hit redefined a genre and invented competitive e-sports, but is the N64 port any good? Our old friend Scott Burger stops by to help us find out! Join us as we flashback to our fondest (and most painful) STARCRAFT memories, discuss the seismic impact the game has had on the culture, and of course construct more pylons.

This week, Dan, Steve, and Woody watch the seminal Japanese kaiju show ULTRAMAN in our ongoing attempt to review 64 things with the word "Ultra" in it. Please, it's really not that complicated, just read the show notes, and stop emailing me asking what this show is!

Harvest Moon 64 (with Rosie Crow and Mikayla Nicholson)

March 30, 2019

Our old friends Rosie and Mikayla join us once again to talk about the laconic thrills of HARVEST MOON 64, the gentle, unassuming farming RPG that gets real addictive real fast. We talk about the history of sim games, talk some tricky gender politics around games, try not to turn into a STARDEW VALLEY podcast, and only barely make any hoe jokes.

Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

March 23, 2019

It's our 75th episode, and to celebrate we've turned our game selection over to our lovely listeners! And you picked STAR WARS: SHADOWS OF THE EMPIRE, which is great, because it gives us an excuse to get into the rich and weird world of the STAR WARS Expanded Universe! Join us as we take Dash Rendar on his tangentially-related adventures between EMPIRE and JEDI, and find out if this early N64 favorite holds up or should be sent down the garbage chute.

Duke Nukem 64 / Duke Nukem: Zero Hour (with Lynsey Pennington)

March 16, 2019

Hail to the king (of misogynistic, retrograde toxic masculinity), baby! This week, we're revisiting the uniquely 90's DUKE NUKEM 64 and its spin-off, DUKE NUKEM: ZERO HOUR. Friend of the show Lynsey Pennington is back to help us dig through the sordid history of Duke's inception, wrestling with just how the hell to control these games, and introduce Steve to this mysterious concept called... porn? 

Also, thanks to everyone who voted in our listener contest! You have spoken and we have listened: for our 75th episode, we will be playing STAR WARS: SHADOWS OF THE EMPIRE!
