This week Earl and Jurek play Operation Logic Bomb for the Super Nintendo! This is a game that neither of the guys have ever played before and it turns out they weren't missing much! The game plays well enough and the music is fine, but it's just a little boring. There are better "search and destroy" type games on the SNES, but this one will do in …
 
This week Jurek and Earl take control of a couple of anthropomorphic air crafts as they play Twinbee on the NES! This game turns out to be pretty fun, only hampered by... you guessed it, the difficulty! Twinbee was extremely popular in Japan, but not so much in North America, so neither of the guys know too much about the series. There are certainl…
 
This week Earl and Jurek play a little known game called Psycho Dream for the Super Nintendo! Neither of the guys had ever played this game before, and they come to find out there is a reason for that, which is this game is the very definition of the word "mediocre". Nothing really stands out, as it's a typical platformer of the time, with no real …
 
This week Jurek and Earl harness their chi and whoop some 8-bit butt as they play Kung-Fu Heroes on the NES! This game turns out to be fairly fun, but suffers from the same thing as so many games of this era, the crushing difficulty! The guys couldn't even make it past level 1-4! They figured they must not have known about a game mechanic or someth…
 
This week Earl and Jurek play Mighty Bomb Jack on the NES! What an odd little game! The movement takes a little getting used to, but it's surprisingly fluid for an early NES game! The game doesn't seem to be too difficult, but likely requires a great amount of memorization for some of the later levels! The music is... fine. The guys also take a Rev…
 
This week Jurek and Earl go on yet another caveman romp as they play Prehistorik Man for the Super Nintendo! Very surprisingly, the game turns out to be pretty fun. While it was likely lost to the masses in the sea of generic SNES platformers, this game packs in a lot of charm! It's funny, the music is good, and it looks fantastic! The controls are…
 
This week Earl and Jurek once again enter the virtual squared-circle as they play Punch-Out! on the NES! This game is an absolute classic and a must-play for any retro game enthusiast! It's incredibly difficult, but can become easier if you learn the proper timing of hits. Spoiler alert! The guys don't have a clue what the proper timing should be f…
 
Hey Punks! Are you Tuff E Nuff to listen to a podcast where two dudes play Tuff E Nuff on the Super Nintendo?! We sure hope so, because that's what we're playing this week! This game might just be the very definition of the words "mediocre fighting game". It is... bland, to say the least. Nothing much stands out in this game, except for maybe the a…
 
Well, it's been another 10 episodes and it's time for a Mario game! The guys are scraping the bottom of the barrel for more Mario games to play while this pandemic lingers, and this just might be the last one for a while. This week the guys play Wrecking Crew on the NES! While not a traditional Mario game, the two main characters are Mario and Luig…
 
This week Jurek and Earl try their hands at Super Dodgeball on the NES! They play a little single player mode but where the game really shines is in it's 2-player mode! The guys have an absolute blast facing off against each other! The game controls well enough, the music is great, and it looks fantastic. What more could you want out of an NES game…
 
This week Earl and Jurek play a little known game called Super Valis IV for the Super Nintendo! The game is "little known" for a reason. This might just be the most mediocre platformer ever made. It's in no way bad, but it's also in no way good. As Thanos once said: "Perfectly balanced, as all things should be." This game is screaming for some poli…
 
This week Jurek and Earl enter a virtual boat race as they play Eliminator Boat Duel on the NES! Earl was very worried there wasn't enough content in this game to get a full episode out of, but boy, was he wrong! While this game probably wasn't very popular due to it's lackluster title, it turns out it's actually incredibly fun to play! It features…
 
This week Earl and Jurek continue to play Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble on the Super Nintendo! Last time, the guys managed to beat the first world. This time, they are a little farther in the game and get a chance to explore some pretty wacky levels! The guys also discuss which video game character they'd most like to party wit…
 
This week Jurek and Earl once again take control of everyone's favorite primate family as they play Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble on the Super Nintendo! Despite the terribly long and tongue twistery title, this game is super fun! As one of the last games released for the SNES, this game has all the bells and whistles! It looks …
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR, REVELERS!! To celebrate the new year, Earl and Jurek play Journey to Silius on the NES! (Shhh! We're just pretending Journey to Silius is a New Year's themed game!) The game turns out to be pretty difficult, but that is nothing new with these NES games! However, the music in this game is phenomenal and might just be some of the best…
 
This week Jurek and Earl take the role of firemen as they play The Ignition Factor on the Super Nintendo! This episode also kinda sorta doubles as our Christmas episode! The game turns out to be pretty fun, but the controls can be a little wonky at times. The music, what little of it there is, is actually quite good and is surprisingly reminiscent …
 
This week Earl and Jurek try their hands at one of the first games to be released on the NES, and that game is Clu Clu Land! Earl did not have high hopes for this episode, but the game actually turns out to be kind of fun, at least once you get a handle on the controls! In fact, the guys might just try and get the world record 2-player speed run fo…
 
This week Jurek and Earl continue playing Zelda II: The Adventure of Link for the NES! This time they start a little farther into the game than the very beginning and attempt to take on dungeon number 2! As you can imagine, it does not go very well. The game continues to be extraordinarily difficult! However, at least there is some good discussion …
 
This week marks another ten episodes, in which Earl and Jurek would normally play a Mario game, but lo and behold the guys are completely out of Mario games to play! Instead, they play Zelda II: The Adventure of Link on the NES! In classic RGR style, the guys play the sequel first! This game is hard. Really hard. If you can manage to move beyond th…
 
This week Jurek and Earl once again take control of everyone's favorite little puffball as they play Kirby's Dreamland 3 on the Super Nintendo! This was one of the last games released for the SNES and it really shines! The art style is fantastic and the music is top-notch! The guys get so into playing the game that the episode runs a little long, b…
 
Well, it was fun while it lasted, Revelers, but Earl and Jurek are, once again, back to recording remotely. This week the guys play S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team on the NES! Hilarious title aside, this game turns out to be pretty fun! It controls well and the music is great. It's main downfall is level 3, in which you ascend in an elevat…
 
This week is one of the super rare times in which neither Jurek or Earl have ever played the game! The guys try out Alisia Dragoon on the Sega Genesis! Despite not knowing how to pronounce Alisia, the guys manage to have some fun with this game! It's quite difficult, but it looks great and the music is superb! The guys do a little bit of cheating t…
 
This week Earl and Jurek step onto the virtual pitch as they play Super Sidekicks on the Neo Geo! Neither of the guys had ever played this game before and it turns out that is a shame, because this game turns out to be super fun! It's way more fun than it has any right to be, especially for an early 90's soccer game! This game is arcade soccer at i…
 
It's that time of year again... time for our Halloween Spook-tacular episode! To celebrate the spooky season, Jurek and Earl play Ghosts & Goblins on the NES! As you can probably imagine, the guys don't get very far in this game, however, through the magic of cheat codes the guys actually manage to beat the game! What?!?! But they definitely cheate…
 
This week Earl and Jurek continue to play Donkey Kong 64 on the Nintendo 64! Last week the guys managed to get one whole golden banana (out of 201!), so needless to say there is a bit more of the game to explore! They now have all the Kong's unlocked, so at least they got to try out each different character. Everything in this game takes a while to…
 
This week Jurek and Earl play the very first part, literally only the beginning, of Donkey Kong 64 for the Nintendo 64! Turns out it takes quite a while to get ANYWHERE in this game! That said, the game is pretty fun while also being fairly clunky. Mario 64 it is not. The guys still manage to have a good time while getting nowhere! The plan is to c…
 
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! The boys are back in the studio! Earl and Jurek are absolutely delighted to be playing ToeJam and Earl on the Sega Genesis while they once again record together in the same room! The guys are thrilled to be playing a game that isn't on a Nintendo system! And what a game it is! ToeJam and Earl is delightfully weird a…
 
This week Jurek and Earl don their ninja outfits and try and save the world as they play Shadow of the Ninja on the NES! This game might truly be the definition of a hidden gem! It was lost in Ninja Gaiden's shadow, but it's truly a fun game! The difficulty is high, but there are some cheats that make things a little easier! The weapons are fun to …
 
This week Earl and Jurek take another look at Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island for the SNES! The guys played this game way back in episode 70, but Earl's Super Nintendo was acting up and not reading the game properly, which was causing the game to freak out! The guys thought they'd take another look at the game so they could play it properly thi…
 
The crack of the bat! The roar of the crowd! The boys of summer are back! This week Jurek and Earl take a swing (see what I did there?!) at Baseball on the NES! While not the first baseball video game to exist, this game was the first time baseball could be played in the style we all know and love! It's very primitive but does provide a pretty fun …
 
This week Earl and Jurek take control of a tiny wizard as they play Solomon's Key on the NES! This game seems like it should be really fun but, like so many games of the time, the difficulty makes having fun almost impossible! The game looks and controls fine, but the music is a little lacking. The guys also field a very interesting discussion ques…
 
This week Jurek and Earl once again take to the virtual skies as they play Super Earth Defense Force on the Super Nintendo! The game turns out to be a fairly lackluster entry in the shoot em' up genre. It plays fine enough, but the difficulty is just too much! However, the guys take a little time to learn about Earth's actual defense force! They al…
 
We're back, Revelers! After an accidental month long hiatus, Earl and Jurek are back playing River City Ransom on the NES! This game is pretty great and it could be argued that it's the best beat em' up on the NES! It's extraordinarily deep for a beat em' up, including many RPG elements not found in many games of the time! The music is also pretty …
 
This week Jurek and Earl once again enter the virtual squared circle as they face off in Natsume Championship Wrestling for the Super Nintendo! The game turns out to be the true definition of a button masher! At one point Earl is literally just slapping his controller trying to make his wrestler do something! While the controls leave something to b…
 
This week Earl and Jurek strap on their wings and grab their virtual bows as they play Kid Icarus on the NES! The guys end up having some fun with the game, but it's pretty hard to have too much fun when the game is so frustratingly difficult! This game is an oddball in the NES library, as it's one of a few games that actually gets easier as you pr…
 
This week Jurek and Earl once again take control of a couple of cavemen as they play Joe and Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics on the SNES! The guys actually have a lot of fun with this game! There is a ton of different stuff to do in the game, even though it appears to be a basic platformer. The game features really vivid colors, which makes it look grea…
 
This week Earl and Jurek take to the skies with Fox, Falco, and the gang as they play Star Fox 2 on the Super Nintendo! This is the most recently released SNES game, as it was officially released in 2017! We're still counting it as a retro game because it was developed in the mid 90s! The game turns out to be just ok. Perhaps with a little more tim…
 
This week Jurek and Earl do something a little different on the show! Instead of playing a game like normal, the guys will each be listing and discussing their personal top 10 video games of all time! Should be a lively discussion! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday June 26, 2020. We took a week off for the …
 
This week Earl and Jurek are revisiting the very first Mario game they played on the show! They will be playing Super Mario Bros. 2 on the NES! They last played this game exactly 200 episodes ago, so the guys thought they'd look at it again, now that they have a little more podcasting experience! As it turns out, this game is still one of the all t…
 
This week Jurek and Earl play two classic games on the NES! First up is Donkey Kong Jr.! This game is a must-play! The port to the NES was very well done, unlike the Atari 2600 port, which is a hot mess! Seriously, go watch some video of that port... it's barely recognizable as DK Jr.! The guys then try out the much less loved Donkey Kong 3! This g…
 
This week Earl and Jurek head to the wild west, or rather a sci-fi version of the wild west, as they play Wild Guns on the SNES! The game turns out to be pretty fun, despite it's crazy hard difficulty! The guys would both recommend playing this game with a friend, because it seems like it might be impossible to complete alone! Difficulty aside, the…
 
This week Jurek and Earl grab their Diskarmors and head off to save the world as they play Rygar on the NES! This is one of those rare games that neither of the guys have ever played before! It is a very early metroid-vania type game and actually turns out to be pretty fun! The music is somewhat lacking, but it controls well. The game's difficulty …
 
This week Earl and Jurek grab their virtual rackets and play two tennis games for the SNES! First up is Super Tennis! This game turns out to be pretty fun, but a little lackluster. It's a perfectly fine tennis game, but you might not get much out of it in today's day and age. The guys then try out Smash Tennis, AKA Super Family Tennis! Now this is …
 
This week Jurek and Earl chase a radioactive frog down a hole as they play Blaster Master for the NES! This game is a must-play NES game and it turns out this is Jurek's first time playing it! The game is fantastic all around! It has intuitive controls and the music is outstanding! While the difficulty can be a bit much, it always feels do-able! Ta…
 
This week Earl and Jurek take to the skies as they play Pilotwings for the SNES! Roughly 200 episodes ago the guys played Pilotwings 64 and now they decided to check out it's predecessor! The game is extremely fun, although the controls can take a bit of getting used to. It's very touchy and can be a little hard to control. That said, the game look…
 
This week Jurek and Earl continue doing the podcast quarantine style as they play Kirby Super Star for the SNES! This game is actually a collection of 8 different games, and some turn out much more fun than others! As a whole though, this game is very good! The fun pretty much never stops and it has a kick ass sound track to go with it! Come have a…
 
This week Earl and Jurek had big plans to play a Sega Genesis game quarantine style, but as it turns out, the Sega Genesis Classics game on the Switch is absolute trash! That means the guys had to pull an audible and play something else! They decided on Vice: Project Doom for the NES! The game actually turns out to be very fun. It features several …
 
This week Jurek and Earl continue doing the podcast quarantine style as they play Super Punch-Out on the SNES! While neither of the guys are particularly good at the game, they manage to have a lot of fun with it! This game looks really good and the music is top notch. The controls are fine, but perhaps they should have given the game a better tuto…
 
This week Earl and Jurek once again come at you quarantine style as they celebrate the 200th episode of the show by playing Dr. Mario for the NES! The guys figured it was the perfect game to play during this public health crisis! Dr. Mario is an absolute joy to play! While neither of the guys are particularly good at puzzle games, they both have ma…
 
This week Jurek and Earl are coming at you quarantine style! The guys are together but separate for this episode (and the foreseeable future) as they play Double Dragon II on the NES! Or rather, they play it via the Nintendo Switch NES Online App! The guys find this game to be pretty fun! The music is pretty great and it looks good for an NES game.…
