Description

Comedian Adam Blank hosts "Remember The Game?", a retro gaming podcast. Each week, Adam and his guest will select a video game that they grew up playing, and spend time reminiscing about what they loved (or hated) about it. Not intended to be a history lesson, "Remember The Game?" is more like a conversation you'd overhear on the playground as a kid. The discussions are all over the place, and are guaranteed to fill you with that warm, nostalgic feeling. (Or rage, like you felt with the underwater level in the original Ninja Turtles game). Either way, it's gonna be fun! New episodes every Wednesday!

We've done a few game draft episodes now (the NES draft is available here on the RTG feed) and they always go over well, so I thought I'd toss our Super Nintendo draft up here this week. 4 regular RTG guests each draft 10 SNES games and try to build the best library possible!

It's tough, frustrating to play (at times), gorgeous to look at, and a game so many 90's kids grew up with. Oh yeah, and it makes me crazy. I love tough retro games, but this one hits different. the frustrating controls and hit & miss collision detection makes it more frustrating than fun at times. That said, when it's clicking, it's a great little game. And it genuinely might be one of the best looking and sounding 16-bit games I've ever laid my eye(s) on. My guest this week was the guy that I yelled at during the Ecco the Dolphin episode, my buddy, Andre. I decided to fire up The Lion King while we were talking again this week, and it spilled over into an Angry Adam appearance. I hope you like swears! And before we wait to be king, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks me what 5 people I would add to Smash Bros if I could. Do my goofy eyes make games harder to play? And the villains and heroes from recent games and TV shows I've been ingesting are coming to help/hurt me. How fucked am I? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Disney Genesis games: Aladdin, Quackshot, and Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse.

I haven't played a bad Star Wars game yet, and Super Star Wars is probably a top 3 for me at this point. I love this game! It scratches every itch I have. It's an SNES game. It's fun. It's tough as balls. It plays great. Aside form that damned Sandcrawler, I don't know if I have a single complaint! Just don't expect me to talk about the last third of the game, because I can't get that far... My go to guest for all things Star Wars is my pal Tyler, and we had a chat about why this game is so good, despite being so tough. And we did it WHILE I was playing the game and setting a new personal best for how long I could last without dying! And before we put go to war with the stars, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks me what I would do if I could make any video game, anyway I want. What games would I make harder if I could? And should Mario Kart continue to include auto-steer options in future iterations? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 tough as balls SNES games: Battletoads in Battlemaniacs, The Lion King, and Super Ghouls N Ghosts. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame And you can check out Daniel's offerings over at: https://www.teepublic.com/user/stpd-mnky-designs Point and click games have never been at the top of my Christmas card list, but there's a select few I grew up playing with. Maniac Mansion was probably my go-to (even though it scared the hell out of me)! I know I'm not the only one that was scared of it either. You control a bunch of high school kids and set out to save a kidnapped girlfriend from a creepy mansion. The game revolves around solving puzzles and utilizing each kid's unique skill set. It's incredible creative, pretty damned funny, and almost impossible for a feeble brain like mine. My buddy Daniel grew up horsing around in mansions as well, and he gives me a call this week to talk about one of the most iconic retro PC games ever made. We had a great time laughing about how tough some of these puzzles were, and dunking on Jeff because the poor guy is as useless as I am. And before we put stuff in microwaves, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone talks about discovering the greatness that is the GBA. A listener corners me over something I said back on RTG #157. And is PS Plus Premium worth it?? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 point and click classics: Sam & Max Hit The Road, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and The Secret of Monkey Island. Learn more about your ad choices.

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame And you can check out Bradley's wheelings & dealings at: Instagam: @TheGamingOdyssey Twitch.tv/VideoGameOdyssey Growing up, I hardly touched Castlevania, or the Sega Genesis. But these days, I'm a fan of both. And they go together like peanut butter and chocolate with Castlevania Bloodlines, which is now one of my favourite Genesis games! I've really grown to appreciate the Castlevania series, and for my money, these games are at their peak on 16-bit hardware. It's safe to say that Super Castlevania IV and Bloodlines are now my favourite Vania games. This one looks great, plays great, and of course, it's tough; just the way I like my retro titles. Ye olde Bradley McCue returns to the show this week, both to talk about how much he loves this game, and to try to explain the story to me, because I'm absolutely fucking lost. Great game, killer guest, mediocre podcast. Why WOULDN'T you listen?! And before we hunt vampires or something, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks for advice with some rare items in their game collection. Will we ever cover PS4/XBox One games on RTG? And with all these layoffs, is the video game market crashing?? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Konami Genesis titles: Rocket Knight Adventures, Contra: Hard Corps, and Sunset Riders.

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame The NES had so, so many licensed games back in the day, and a lot of them sucked. Forunately, a few gems were laying among the garbage, and Tiny Toon Adventures was one of them! It's a classic platformer, and you control Buster, Plucky, Dizzy and Furball as they set out to rescue Babs from Montana Max. It's not particularly long, but it's pretty tough (looking at YOU, World 4), and a nice change of pace from the Mario games we've all played a million times. Why the hell haven't we gotten a Tiny Toon game collection yet?!! I'm rolling solo this week, but I take a deep dive into one of my favourite games from my childhood and walk you through every level in Tiny Toon Adventures. If you've never played it, I'll make you feel like you have. And if you HAVE played it, you probably haven't gotten past World 4, so I'll tell you what's waiting on the other side. And before we get toony and loony (not the Canadian coins), I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone brings up concerns with the amount of storage space on modern consoles. Who would be on my wrestling Mt. Rushmore? And has RTG made me a better gamer?? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Tiny Toon games: Babs' Big Break, Hidden Treasure, and Buster Busts Loose. Learn more about your ad choices.

These two, who grew up on opposite sides of the Sega/Nintendo divide, embark on a thrilling journey through the gaming landscape. Together, they challenge each other to revisit and play the gems they missed in the gaming golden days. The SNES RPG library is the stuff of legend, so it's easy for the lesser known games to slip through the cracks. Lufia II is one of those titles, and I'm here to tell you it's a game worth exploring said crack for. I'd never played, or heard of it, before this episode, but it's like a standard Final Fantasy RPG meets The Legend of Zelda. You fight battles in classic turn-based RPG combat, but outside of that you solve puzzles and blow up walls like you would in A Link to the Past. I don't love RPGs, but this one hooked me.  I have two guests this week. Long-time hot dog, Jnasty, sponsored this episode and got me playing Lufia II in the first place, so he swings by to explain why he's so hot for Sinistrals. And then our power hungry Discord mod, Captain N, gives me a shout to take a deep dive into feeding monsters shields whilee navigating the glitchiest dungeon to ever glitch (it'll all make sense after you listen). And before we save the world, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone calls for an end to micro-transactions. Will I ever review Cyberpunk 2077? And is Mario 64 a horror game??? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 more SNES hidden gem RPGs: Secret of Evermore, Terranigma, and Breath of Fire II. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame And you can check out Bradley's wheelings & dealings at: Instagam: @TheGamingOdyssey Twitch.tv/VideoGameOdyssey I dunno if Miyamoto was just in a bad mood or something, but The Lost Levels is probably his most sadistic creation to date. This game is like Mario Dark Souls. And I don't know what it is about it, but I love it. I like tough platformers, I love Mario games, and this one cranks the difficulty up to about 50. It has to be the hardest (Nintendo published) Mario game ever made. And while it originally didn't make its way over here until Mario All-Stars on the SNES, the original version is available on Switch Online now. Both of them will fuck you up. My guest this week, Bradley McCue, took one for the team and spent over a week plugging away at Lost Levels and fighting the urge to throw his controller to get ready for this podcast, and we have a pretty beefy convo about whether or not Lost Levels is good, too hard, and if it was the right call by Nintendo to not release it in North America back in the day (it was). And before we RAGE, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks if it's wrong to play games on easy these days. Where do I stand on the Slay The Spire board game? And what classic series that HASN'T got the remake treatment yet do I want to see get it the most?? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 NES tough games: Blaster Master, Fester's Quest, and Ghosts N Goblins. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Life did that thing where it gets in the way this week and we couldn't get RTG done, so here's a freebie from the Patreon archives: my Super Mario Bros. Wonder review!

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame We're double dipping on Donkey Kong. Last week we talked about the OG arcade game, and this week we're talking about the hidden gem of the DK franchise: Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! For some reason, people seem to think I hate this game, and that couldn't be further from the truth. Do I think it's the third best game in the DKC trilogy? Yes. But I'd also put that trilogy up against just about any platforming trilogy ever made. I don't hate this game at all. I just hate Kiddy Kong. My guest this week is long-time supporter of the show, Carbon Fibre Zombie (real name, as far as I know). We spent over an hour talking about why this game struggles to shine in the shadows of its older brothers, and why it shouldn't because it's still awesome. We also sing the praises of the greatest Kong of all-time (Dixie) and dump a little on the worst Kong (Kiddy) And before we eat bananas, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks if I had to choose, would I only play my favourite games of all-time, or all the other games ever made?? What the hell is going on with our Subreddit??? And where do/did I stand on POGs?? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features the greatest platforming trilogy of all-time: Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, and 3. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame Alright, alright, I hear ya. You want more episodes about arcade games. Your wish is my command, and this week we're talking about one of the biggest, most iconic arcade cabs of all-time. The cabinet that saved Nintendo of America and kickstarted the legendary career of Shigeru Miyamoto. We're talking Donkey Kong. Admittedly, I've spent more time with the NES port of this game than the arcade version, but a classic is a classic. That first level with the pink construction beams, the barrels, and that Mario guy is among the most recognizable screens in gaming. To this day, I can't walk by this cabinet without dropping a little change. Who doesn't love Donkey Kong? You know who definitely doesn't doesn't love Donkey Kong? My buddy Chris. We had a great chat about one of the most legendary video games of all-time, and looked at the sequels and stuff as well. I love this franchise, I love this game, and I like this podcast. And before we go back to 1981, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks if they NEED to play the OG Final Fantasy VII before diving into Remake/Rebirth this year. Is anyone else as done with crafting in games as we are? And why do I always say "keep the bills on"? (The answer is lame). Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too!

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame Batman: Arkham Asylum is such an important video game. It's not just one of the greatest games ever made, but it really kicked off the modern era of superhero games, and I'd argue that it influenced the action genre as a whole. It's about damned time we showed it some love on RTG. Arkham Asylum absolutely dominated our PS3/Xbox 360 poll in November, and I've spent a couple weeks repaying it for the first time in well over ten years. It might feel a litttttttle basic, combat wise, by today's standards, but holy balls does it hold up. Still looks great, plays awesome, and that voice acting? Forget about it. My guest this week is the Robin to my Batman, my buddy Tyler, and we stayed up late Friday night talking about what an incredible game Arkham Asylum is, and what kind of impact it had on the industry moving forward.  And before we visit the Batcave that was built under a prion with nobody noticing which makes absolutely no fucking sense, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks if I have a method to my madness as far as what console I play multi-console games on these days. Would a new Ecco the Dolphin game work in 2024? And if I could pick one game to be a launch title for Nintendo's next console, what would it be? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 retro Batman games: Batman (NES), The Adventures of Batman & Robin, and Batman Forever!

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame We've been talking about covering Jak & Daxter for YEARS! I just needed to find time to replay it first. I finally squeezed it in, and I'm happy to say it's as fun as I remember. I love this damned game. If you've never played, it's your classic 3D platforming collect-a-thon. But the charming characters, crisp graphics, and interactions between Jak and Daxter put it alongside Banjo Kazooie, Ratchet & Clank, and Sly Cooper as one of my favourite non-Mario platformers of all-time. I haven't been able to put it down for a week, just hit the 100% mark yesterday, and I'm ready to (finally) tell you all about why I love this game so much, and why you should, too. Years ago, I promised my buddy Andre that I'd have him on the show if we ever talked Jak & Daxter, and the time has come. I hope this episode lives up to the hype for those of you that have been waiting forever for it, and once we're talking talking orbs, we spend a few minutes speculating about the future of the series, too. And before we swim in eco, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks how I feel about emulating modern games if you already own them. Where did sports game developers go wrong? And are there any myths about Canada I want to confirm or deny? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 PS2 platforming classics: Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, Sly Cooper 2, and Ape Escape 2! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame In case you didn't know, I'm a bit of a Mega Man fan. And while I love most of his games, Mega Man 9 is like one of the best slices of a phenomenal pizza. This game is so...fucking...good. And what's really wild about MM9 is that it kinda came outta nowhere. Mega Man 8 released in the late 90's, and while we had some spin-off games, it seemed like the mainline Mega series was Mega dead. And then all of sudden Capcom announced that a new game was in the works, and it was going back to its classic 8-bit roots. I was excited, but a little skeptical. Fortunately, it turned out that they not only reached, but exceeded my expectations. Mega Man 9 is beloved by practically every Mega Man fan, and with good reason. It might just be the best game in the series. I'm rolling solo this week. I'm excited to kick off a new year of the show, and what better way than by talking about a game I could ramble about for hours without coming up for air. Let's talk Mega Man! And before I get Mega, I put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks what retro consoles I currently own, and which ones am I looking to pick up? Have I ever scrapped an episode of the show because I wasn't happy with it? And a listener wonders if they should scold their son for not holding "run" while playing Mario? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of the highest rated Capcom games on Metacritic: Street Fighter 4, Devil May Cry, and Resident Evil: Code Veronica! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

And this game might be even better than the original was! If you've never played the Portal games, I'm begging ya - pause this show, go play em (they're on everything) and then come back and bask in the Portaly goodness. These are probably the two best puzzle games (not named Tetris) that I've ever played. The writing is hilarious, the puzzles are clever, and the mechanics are as silky smooth as smooth ass silk. These games are practically perfect. Pending RTG Hall of Famer Mark McCue is my guest this week, and just we did at the end of last year, we had a great time talking about the brilliance that is Portal. Or...Portal 2. Whatever. These games rules. And before we eat up with a potato, I use put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks if I have any gaming resolutions for next year? What era of TMNT is best? And why is our Subreddit causing so much confusion?? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of the best sequels ever made: Arkham City, Mass Effect 2, and Halo 2! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Patreon.com/RememberTheGame I've said it a thousand times and I'll keep beating the drum: video games are art. And Psychonauts is as artistic as any game I've played for this podcast. A funky ass platformer starring a kid with psychic powers that scapes the circus and runs off to psychic power summer camp. The levels take place in the minds of the people at this camp, and you do stuff like battling Napoleon in a board game, crushing a fish city Ala Godzilla, and solving the age old question of "who is the Milkman?"  This game came out on top of our Xbox Patreon Poll back in October, and I have to say, I'm glad it has the cult following that it does, because I'm drinking the kool-aid. Minus that last level. Fuck that level. My buddy Patrick agrees, as you'll hear when you listen in on the phone call we had about Tim Schafer's Psychonauts. And before we find the milkman, I use my powerful brain to put together another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks if indie games have overtaken AAA games from a quality standpoint? Do I ever check out the speed run charity events? And since we're talking Psychonauts, what psychedelics have I played with in the past? Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too!

I know, I know haha. Fortunately, his game is a lot cooler than he is. We're talking Shadows of the Empire! I only got into Star Wars about 3 years ago, and once I saw the movies, I had to start playing the games. And I'm happy to say that, six games into the library, I haven't played a "bad" Star Wars video game yet. This one is probably the closest, but I don't think it's bad. It's just an early N64 game. This is one of our "stupid sexy sponsored" episodes, so said sponsor and long-time hot dog, PBRJax, swings by the show to explain why he's such a Dash fan. And then the Chewy to my Han Solo, my buddy Tyler, gives me a call to talk about how none of us can beat this fucking game. And before we save the galaxy, I use the force to summon another edition of the Infamous Intro! This week, someone asks what my favourite (and least favourite) video games shows/movies are. Should a parent let their kid beat them at video games? And when will I play Baldur's Gate 3!?! Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Star Wars heavyweights: Battlefront II, KOTOR II, and Jedi Outcast! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Another fantastic episode of this podcast. This South Park game was ridiculously fun but also ridiculously easy to play. In all honesty the easiness never took away from anything in the game.

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.
