EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   This episode was tricky, because there was no way in hell we weren't gonna hit Earthbound up for a re-visited episode at some point, but I feel like I talk about this game all the time. What's left to say??   You know I love it. I know most of you love it. I could've just spent another hour talking about loving it. And we did, for a big portion of the episode. But we also pulled back the curtain a little bit and talked about a few of the minor, nit-picky faults that Earthbound has. Because as much as I adore it, it isn't quuuuite perfect.   My younger brother Josh returns to the show this week, and we went back and forth on one of the most treasured games of our childhoods, on one of the most treasured consoles in history. Earthbound may be mainstream now, but Josh and I loved it back when everyone thought it stunk. Literally.    And before we eat Hamburgers and SMAAASSSHHHh, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, a listener asks if I'll ever do another interview style episode of the show. We get into the Michael Bay TMNT movies, and why us fans need to stick together. And doI have any advice for a new Slay The Sire player???   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 "lesser known" SNES RPGs: Breath of Fire II, Lufia, and Illusion of Gaia.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   I've never hidden the fact that I missed out on most of the big PlayStation 2 games back in the day, and every freaking time I try one, I grow a little fonder of that little black box. But of all the beauties I've fired up on the PS2 over the past couple years, Sly Cooper might just my favourite.   People have been on me to play this game for years, and now that I'm done, I can't freaking wait to sink my teeth into the rest of the trilogy. It still looks great, plays perfect, and to be honest, I've thought long and hard about slapping a rare perfect score on this one. Will Sly join the incredibly exclusive 10/10 club? Give us a listen and find out.   My buddy Darren is the biggest Sly Cooper fan I know, and we spent almost an hour talking about how phenomenal this game is, and how badly we wish Sucker Punch would revive the series.   And before we steal books, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about the miss that Pokemon Violet & Scarlet appears to be, and speculate about what the hell happened. Are "service" games like GTA Online and Destiny handcuffing developers? And why exactly do I hate the Sega Saturn??   Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of the PlayStation 2's best: Metal Gear Solid 3, Silent Hill 2, and Kingdom Hearts.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   It's the busiest time of the year for my comedian alter ego, so I thought I'd give myself a break and commit to watching a 2 hour movie, instead of playing through a twenty hour video game this month. We tossed a bunch of old video game flicks on the Patreon Poll, and 1995's Mortal Kombat came out on top.    I've heard so much about this movie, and I remember the soundtrack being huge back when I was a kid, but I don't think I ever watched it. So a couple weeks ago, I finally subjected myself to the original MK flick, and I have a lot to say about it. You want to know if I liked it? Loved it? Hated it? You're gonna have to listen to the episode!   My buddy and fighting game fanatic Mike The Ref is my guest this week, and we had a long chat about whether or not this movie is good, and I blew smoke of Johnny Cage's ass, because he's the man, of course.    And before we dig into this bad boy, I piece together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, a listener writes in praising game devs that include extra accessibility options in their games. What would I change about Yoshi? And have my gaming tastes changed as I've gotten older??   Plus we have a rare round of 'WATCH One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 90's gaming flicks: Double Dragon, Street Fighter, and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.   And as Mike mentioned, he'll be streaming for 12 straight hours to raise money for Jack.org the day this episode goes live!

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   In hindsight, it probably would have made more sense to talk about a sequel, or some game that ends in '2', considering this is episode 222, but we don't do the whole "logic" thing around here. So instead, we're talking about a game that many people don't consider all that good, but that I've had a soft spot in my heart for ever since I was a kid - Bubsy!!   It looks great, sounds good, and plays...not that well, but I don't care. I've wanted to give Bubsy his moment in the spotlight since I started this podcast, and that day has come. My buddy Keegs is my guest this week, and we're talking air gliding, yarn balls, constant deaths, and stupid shirts. "What could possibly go wrong!?!?"   And before we dig into this bad boy, I piece together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, a concerned listener writes in about the future of physical games. Was the Virtual Boy where VR gaming started? And do I ever get nervous about playing really hyped up games for the first time?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 crappy animal mascots: Gex: Enter the Gecko, Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, and Aero the Acro-Bat.   Don't forget, both Keegs and I are taking part in Extra-Life this weekend, to raise money for the Stollery Children's Hospital here in Edmonton.    I'll be streaming on Twitch for 24 straight hours, Nov 12 - 13, 8am - 8am (Mountain). Find all the info at RememberTheGamePodcast.com   And Keegs and his friends will be running TWO 12 hour days of games this weekend.

EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal -> https://nordvpn.com/rtg Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!   We're running a little behind on our Patreon Poll winner episodes right now, but I'm working on it! In August, Star Wars Episode I: Racer came out on top of the poll, and 2 months later, I've bought it, played it, and suckered one of my friends into talking to me about it.   This was a tricky episode for me, because it's a game I never played growing up that a ton of you are nostalgic for, based on a franchise I don't really know that well, in a genre I could live without, on a system I don't like very much. I was worried this would be another Sonic Adventure 2, but it wasn't. The deck was stacked against this bad boy, but it's too damned fun for me to hate (even if I suck asssss at it).   Former RTG Hall of Fame Mark McCue is back this week for another tantalizing chat about an old video game, and we got into the Light Side, and the Dark Side, of the beloved Star Wars Episode I: Racer.    And before we crash over and over again, I piece together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about what happens to the games that come up short on Patreon Polls. What single player games would we like to see made into co-op titles? And is Nintendo's Switch Online Expansion Pack worth the extra money if you're just interested in a few N64 games?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 retro Star Wats titles: Rogue Squadron, Super Star Wars, and Shadows of the Empire.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

It's the episode before Halloween, so of course we have to cover one more "scary" game. And I can't think of a better option than one of the OG scary games, and honestly, just one of the best games on the NES altogether: Castlevania.    This bad boy has been near the top of the "most requested" list for years now, but the issue was that I just didn't play a ton of it growing up. I used to rent it sometimes, but the Medusa heads and stairs gave me nightmares and I never went back. So I spent 3 days just binging the game in preparation of this podcast, and we actually recorded it minutes after I beat the game on stream (and I was still pretty riled up).    My boy Mark McCue is my guest this week (he spent a large chink of this past week playing Castlevania to get ready for this episode as well), and we had a great time talking about stupid stairs, evil Medusa heads, a certain fight against a certain dead guy, and most importantly, about why Castlevania is an all-time classic.   And before we fall through some stairs, I scrape together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about the impact Goldeneye 007 will have on Nintendo's Switch Online subscriber count. Is the Xbox Series S becoming an issue? And can Pokemon only say their names, or are they named after the only word they can say??   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Konami NES classics: Base Wars, Metal Gear, and Top Gun.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I can't definitively say what game we get the most requests to cover on the show, but I know Grand Theft Auto IV is near the top of the list. And after spending a massive chunk of the past couple weeks playing it, it's time to go bowling (if you know, you know).    I've never been the biggest fan of the GTA series. I think they're fun to fuck around in, but the only one I played around the time of it's release was Vice City, which I didn't love. I finally played San Andreas a couple years ago and adored it, and I've been jonesing to play IV and V ever since.    Longtime supporter of the show, Mr. Doug Dorn, sponsored this episode, finally giving me the kick in the ass I needed to get around to playing GTA IV, and I'm so damned glad he did. This game is now easily my favourite Grand Theft Auto (until I play V, apparently), and it was great chatting with Doug and finding out why this game means so much to him.   And after that, my buddy (and the Roman to my Niko) Andre, comes by the show and we get into the seedy underbelly of Liberty City, and talk about what makes this game so damned good.   And before we go bowling, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about old gaming cartoon like Captain N and The Super Mario Bros. Super Show. Why the hell does Super Mario World end at 96 exits and not 100?? And what's the deal with the constant short stock on Nintendo's N64 Switch controller??   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 grand Grand Theft Autos: Vice City, San Andreas, and Liberty City Stories.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

It's October, so you know we have to cliche it up and roll out at least one episode about a scary game. And for my money, scary games don't get much better than Dead Space. This bad boy is hella fun to play, and it's scary as fuck, too!   Resident Evil 4 was my first real experience with a "horror" game, and I loved it. When I saw Dead Space, I thought "that looks like a better Resident Evil 4". And I don't think it's a hot take to put these games in the same S Tier of survival horror. Two of the best to ever do it.    My buddy Patrick returns to the show this week, and we spent an hour talking about why the game mechanics, controls, sound, atmosphere, and practically everything else about Dead Space is almost perfect. If you haven't played it yet, hopefully we can convince you to grab your plasma cutter (and a change of pants) and give it a shot!   And before we enter zero gravity, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about the spring system I use here on RTG. Someone asks my gaming experience is different when I play a game for the podcast vs just playing it for fun. And do you ever feel guilty about playing video games??   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 more survival horror heavies: F.E.A.R. 2, Fatal Frame, and Condemned: Criminal Origins.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I know some of you want more PC love on the podcast. The problem is, I haven't played anything PC. I think we've literally covered every PC game I've played in my life on the show already. So if I play something new, bet your ass it's gonna get an episode of RTG. And our Patreons decided I should play Half Life last month, so here we are.   I didn't love playing with mouse & keyboard (in fact, I fucking hated it), but I sure liked this game. Even 20+ years later its release, I can see what a monumental, influential game this is. I really feel like it's one of those games every gamer should experience, and I'm glad I finally have. (The last 25% of the game sucks, though.)   My buddy Tyler is back this week, and we spent over an hour talking about Valve's game debut, and one of the most important first-person shooters ever made. Half Life is pretty dope, and it was worth going against my anti-PC heritage to experience.   And before we swing crowbars, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about cloud gaming, and what role it could play in gaming in the future. Someone asks me to break down the new PS Plus tiers. And what does a game have to do to get me to buy it on multiple platforms?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of the greatest retro PC shooters ever: Duke Nukem 3D, DOOM, and Wolfenstein 3D.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

Working my way through the Sega Genesis library has been one of the coolest things about hosting this podcast. There's so many games on the other side of the console war trenches that I've always wanted to get my hands on, and most of the titles I've gotten to haven't disappointed.    TMNT: Hyperstone Heist is the latest game I've crossed off my list, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I didn't disappoint me, but it didn't blow my socks off, either. I feel like it's too good of a game to simply call it a lesser Turtles in Time...but...it's kind of a lesser Turtles in Time...    I found this to be a tough game to review, because we've covered Turtles in Time (twice), and most of the best features of Hyperstone Heist are the same features from Turtles in Time. But I got my buddy Mark McCue on the phone, we to a 16-bit beat 'em up about one of the best franchises in the history of the universe, and we did our best not to shortchange Hyperstone Heist on this episode. Because it really is a pretty solid game.    And before we talk turtles, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about the prospects of more RPG episodes of the podcast in the future. What video game character do you want to punch in the teeth the most? And does anyone actually enjoy blowing in NES cartridges?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Genesis beat 'em ups: Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie, Spider-Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage, and X-Men 2: The Clone Wars.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

Every couple months, we dedicate an episode of the show to "revisiting" a game we covered back in the early days of the podcast, when we had even less of an idea of what we were doing than we do now. And this week, we're taking another look at one of my absolute favourite games of all-time, and for my money, the best Mega Man game ever created - Mega Man X.    I think this game is a stone's throw from being perfect. It looks great, plays well, and the soundtrack is one of the best in all of retro gaming. I suppose you could argue it's a littttttle easy (for a Mega Man game), and there's a particular jump that just chaps my ass, but other than that, I have a really hard criticizing X's debut title. It's just a damned good video game.   The one and only Bradley McCue gave me a call this week, and we went through what makes X so rad, and even got into a little strategy talk (which is a rare thing here on RTG, as I normally suck at the games we're talking about). I could talk about this game every week. I hope y'all enjoy it!   And before we talk X, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about the modern games that'll be considered "classics" someday. What's the optimal number of party members for an RPG? And what do you do to combat gamer burnout?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Mega Man games: Mega Man X: Command Mission, Mega Man Legends, and Mega Man: Battle Network.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I consider myself fairly well traveled when it comes to the NES. I've played MOST of the big titles in some capacity, and I know most of the origin stories when it comes to Nintendo's mainstream franchises. But one that's always eluded me was Metroid. So while I was on holidays in July, I decided to break out my Switch and see where Samus came from. And while I'm glad I've experienced her first game, I can confidently say that I never want to play it again, haha.    This game is innovative, creative, easy to look at, and pretty damned fun. But it's also hard. NES hard. And if you know NES hard, you know that I resisted the urge to throw my Switch in the ocean on a few occasions. I had to look up a map, and I'm not even ashamed of it.   My buddy Daniel is the biggest Metroid fan I know, but he missed this one back in the day, too. So we both just finished our first run through Metroid on the NES, and we got together to talk about the years it took off both of our lives. Holy fuck, why does it have to be so hard????   And before we talk Samus, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talked about how I pick my guests for the show. If I could go drinking with one gaming character, who would it be? And why the hell is RTG not on TikTok??   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 "NES Tough" games: Blaster Master, Fester's Quest, and Battletoads.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I don't think I've ever ragequit/returned/ragequit/returned a video game as many times as I did Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. This game is clever, very easy on the eyes, creative as fuck, and TOUGH AS NAILS. The controls are weird, the checkpoints suck, and your margin for error is practically non-existent. I spent the entire playthrough getting angry. But when I finally finished the game, I wanted to go back and play it again. This game is so fucked.   One of our listeners by the online handle of 'Blaine the Hoagie Man' sponsored this episode, tolerated my repeated ragequitting, and managed to convince me that Oddworld belongs up there with Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy VII, and Resident Evil as one of the defining games in the original PlayStation's library. He swung by the show this week to explain why he thought I'd enjoy this game, and why it didn't break him back in the 90's.    And after I chat with Blaine, I give my buddy Tyler a call to break down the good, the bad, and the odd that makes up Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee.    And before we talk farts and stuff, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talked about whether or not mobile gaming is a threat to handhelds like the Nintendo Switch and the Steam Deck. How do I determine the value of a game when I think about buying it? And what's the best retro compilation available on modern consoles these days?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 games that contain farts (yes, seriously): Conker's Bad Fur Day, Fable, and Boogeyman.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

It took 212 episodes, but we're finally talking Silent Hill. Silent Hill 3, to be exact. People have been asking for us to show this franchise some love since the early days of RTG, and the only reason it took this long is because, well, I'm a bitch when it comes to scary stuff.    But one of our listeners by the name of Ryan finally kicked me in the ass and told me to suck it up by sponsoring an episode of the show about how favourite game in the series, Silent Hill 3. So I played it. I sent hours getting freaked out by the sound of static while trying to open locked doors, and now that I've finally rolled the credits on a Silent Hill game, I get why y'all pushed for this so much. This is a pretty damned good video game.   Ryan pops by the show to explain why Silent Hill 3 was his poison, and then my buddy Patrick makes his return to the show to help me break down the good, the bad, and the gruesome of the third entry in the Silent Hill series.    (And no, I haven't played Silent Hill 2 yet. But I will.)   And before we silence hills, I roll out another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, someone asks if I regret selling my video game collection? When do we think the next Nintendo console will drop? And why do I refuse to use walkthroughs for my games??   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too!

Wave Race 64 was added to the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack library last week, and I figured it'll probably never be this topical again, so let's strike while the iron's wet. I've been looking for an excuse to cover this one on the podcast anyway. I remember playing it back when I got my 64 and thinking the water physics were incredible, and the game itself was really fun.    I've been playing it over the past couple days to get ready for the show, and even after all these years, those statements hold true. The water is STILL incredible, and the game is STILL really fun! I was actually surprised by just how well this mofo has aged, to tell you the truth.   My younger brother, Josh, is my guest again this week, and it was a real trip going back to 1996 and talking about a game we used to play together as kids (and as much as I hate to admit it, a game he used to be able to kick my ass at). Wave Race 64 hold up, and hopefully this week's podcast convinces you to give it a spin.   And before we race on waves, I CRUSH another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, someone asks how I deal with haters and negative listeners online. How does Yoshi's Island stack up against Super Mario World? And do I think I'll ever stop buying new consoles and games?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 N64 racers: Excitebike 64, Star Wars Episode I: Racer, and Ridge Racer 64    Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I think most of our listeners know I'm a Mario fan-boy. We've covered most of his games from the old days, with Super Mario All-Stars  being a rare exception. I know this is a phenomenal collection of games, and you probably know it, too. But we've already covered all the included games in greater detail on their own episodes of the podcast. I wasn't sold there was enough meat on the bone to justify talking about them all again.    But then I started replaying it, and remembered just how incredible this collection is. Better graphics, better music, save files, a never before released (in North America) Mario game. Super Mario All-Stars is phenomenal, and dammit, it's time to give it its due on RTG.   David Rae makes his triumphant return to the show this week. He was my guest for the Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros 2, and Super Mario Bros episodes, and we talked about what made this collection special, what other NES games would have benefitted from the All-Stars treatment, and whether or not these games are the greatest remasters of all-time...   And before we star is all the way up, I stumble through another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, I answer a bunch of "will this game ever get an episode of the podcast?' questions. Why do I hate Assassin's Creed? (I don't.) And what games have let me down and surprised me the most over the years?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 SNES platforming greats: Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario World, and SMW2: Yoshi's Island.    Are you on social media? Of course you are.

Splinter Cell is a tough episode for me. I was once a secret agent that snuck into Government agencies to steal briefcases full of data sticks, and it isn't something I like to talk about.   Also, it's a really impressive game, but it's a stealth game, and as an impatient dipshit, I fucking hate stealth games.    So this is one of those episodes where I'm trying to walk the line and explain why I don't really like it, but why there's not really a lot wrong with it, either. It's not perfect, but it's revolutionary as hell. And honestly, I think it has a better game engine than it's stealthy opposition, Metal Gear.    My buddy, Bradley McCue, returns to the show this week. He's a big Metal Gear fan, I don't particularly like stealth games, and I thought we'd be the perfect duo to review a stealth game that isn't Metal Gear.   And before we anger all you Splinter Cell junkies, I sneak in (see what I did there?) another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we get into our most satisfying gaming moments. A listener asks me what I would have done differently if I could go back in time and call the shots at Sega. And will physical copies of modern video games be sought after like NES cartridges are in thirty years?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Xbox badasees: Hitman 2, Max Payne, and Thief: Deadly Shadows.    Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I feel like every time I try a PlayStation 2 game I missed out on back in the day, I talk about how much I regret sleeping on that damned console. That theme continues this week, because we're talking about June's Patreon Poll winner: Ratchet & Clank. And this game charmed the hell out of me. The PS2 really was a beast.   I've played the modern 2 R&C games on the PS4 & PS5, but this was my first time checking out the origins of the franchise. The controllers and camera and stuff are a little wonky by today's standards, but the game is still fire. The voice acting, graphics, weapons, characters, gameplay; all great. I get why people that started with this game stuck with the franchise over the last couple decades now. I'm a fan.    Especially when it comes to Clank. Love that little bastard!   My buddy Darren, who happens to be a Ratchet & Clank super-fan, returns to the show this week, and we spent a solid hour talking about what makes this game, and series, so damned charming.   And before we talk about clanking ratchets, I serve up another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about female gamers, and whether or not I know many of them. Someone throws a BRUTAL play one/remake one/erase one at me. And which major console has the proper button layout on their controller?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of the highest rated games of 2002: GTA: Vice City, Metroid Prime, and Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4.    Are you on social media? Of course you are.

Pokemon episodes make me nervous. I love the passion, but you pokemaniacs are hardcore, and sometimes my limited pocket monster knowledge ends up getting me a little heat, because I just don't know that franchise well enough. And Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal is easily the generation of Pokemon games we've had the most requests for. So the pressure is on.    I put over 45 hours into my first ever play-through of Pokemon Gold just to prepare for this episode, and while I don't know everything about these games, I know why so many people consider Gen II to be top tier in the world of Pokemon. So does my buddy Miklos. He's a diehard Pokemon junkie, and he joined me on the show this week to talk about what makes Gen II so special.    AND this episode was sponsored by longtime community member, Deendonian, who swung by to talk about what these games mean to him, and we get into his hobby of speed running them, as well!    You can check his Pokemon streams out at twitch.tv/deendonian   And before we talk about trapping animals in little balls, we serve up another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about whether or not indie games can overtake AAA games for top spot on the gaming food chain. Which games are better story tellers; retro titles, or modern games? And who's my favourite Ninja Turtles villain?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 complete console libraries: The Game Boy Color, The Game Boy Advance, and The Nintendo DS.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

I've been away on holidays, and to kill two birds with one stone, I've handed the keys to the S.S. RTG to someone else for the first time in our 4+ year history. FORMER RTG Hall of Fame Mark McCue and his bro Bradley are covering me this week, and talking about a game that I've had so many requests for I hear them in my sleep - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.    I hate this God damned game, I refuse to talk about it, and so the guys are covering me while I'm away AND crossing a game off my backlog at the same time. For all of you that have ben asking a Mask episode for years, this is it. This is the one. I hope you like it because that damned game is never getting another chance to be on my show.    And before the guys get into some weirdo named Majora and their freaky mask, the serve up another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, I don't remember what they talk about because we recorded this episode over a month ago.   BUT, the blow in some cartridges. And we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 N64 heavyweights: xi, Super Mario 64, and Banjo-Kazooie.   Are you on social media? Of course you are.

Thanks again for the cover, boys!   You're both banned from the Hall, though.

I just found this podcast, I love it! Hits me right in the feels, I’m a huge gamer so this is perfect for me. It helps me through my 10 hour work days. I’m on episode 64. I hope this never ends. Being a big RPG fan I hope there is an episode on Secret of Mana. That is the game that got me into RPG’s, I try to not look ahead bc I like to see if I can tell the game by the music. 5 stars dude, you are funny as fuck keep it up.

One of my favourite hobbies when I have free time is playing online slots. That's something I feel I'm genetically inclined to. Visit a casino website like https://jackwin.com/en-ca/games/slots/providers-is-Microgaming/ (Microgaming) to play slot games online. The winner is Jack Win. Play Playboy, Immortal Romance and Major Millions, my recommendation. These are a few of my favorite online slot machines.
