Remember The Game #175 - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Part II)

Nov 24 • 01:45:17
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I've never hidden the fact that I have very mixed opinions of this game. I played it when it came out in 1998 (pre-ordered one of the gold cartridges!), but it wasn't until this past couple weeks that I finally beat the Nintendo 64 version for the first time. Before then, I'd only ever finished the 3DS port. And going back to the origi...

Remember The Game? #174 - Mega Man V

Nov 17 • 01:30:51
I love Mega Man. And I love the Game Boy. But Mega Man on the Game Boy? It shouldn't work. And the first four times they tried it, it doesn't really look like it did. But as the old saying goes, the fifth times the charm!
 
Because Mega Man V...is...awesome.
 
It looks good. It controls well. It sounds great. It has a different story with different robot masters. And it has a ...

Remember The Game? #173 - Tomb Raider

Nov 10 • 01:39:11
We're finally talking Tomb Raider. I missed these games back in their prime, but I sure remember them. Lara Croft was EVERYWHERE back in the day, and if people weren't talking about her games, they were talking about certain "codes" that we thought were in the game...
 
And while I'm sure the powers that be figured "If we give her big triangle boobs, people will talk about t...

Remember The Game? #172 - Mortal Kombat II

Nov 3 • 01:52:31
I say this every time we cover a fighting game, but this genre intimidates the hell out of me. I respect people that play these games at a high level so much, but even at their easiest difficulties, they're out of my league. Mortal Kombat II is a rare exception. I still suck at it, but I owned it growing up, and I played it quite a bit. I might even go as far as to say thi...

Remember The Game? #171 - Diddy Kong Racing

Oct 27 • 01:44:07
I don't know if there's a game we've had more requests to cover on the podcast than Diddy Kong Racing. And the reason it took so long was because as a kid, I never played it. I had Mario Kart 64, and damned if I was gonna waste a Christmas or Birthday present on another kart racing game (that I always assumed wasn't as good, anyway). 
 
Well, I've finally played it. And it t...

Remember The Game? #170 - Strategy Guides WITH SPECIAL GUEST: Former Strategy Guide Author, Doug Walsh

Oct 20 • 01:58:24
Did you use strategy guides growing up? Of course you did. These books were the holy grails of gaming in the 90's and 2000's. Even if you weren't looking for tips on how to save princesses or find material, they were just a blast to read. Like instruction manuals on steroids. But did you ever think about where those guides came from?
 
Some poor bastard must have spent days ...

Remember The Game#169 - RC Pro-Am

Oct 13 • 01:26:16
RC Pro-Am is not only one of my favourite games on the NES, but it's one of the best games in that iconic little grey box's library. And I'll be damned if I'm gonna sit here and let anyone say anything different. Fortunately, nobody seems to be. 
 
The game is pretty basic. There's no real car customization, no multi-player, it only features one game mode, and there isn't ev...

Remember The Game #168 - DinoPark Tycoon

Oct 6 • 01:31:10
**There's a slight buzzing sound in the intro this week. I didn't catch it until the episode was finished. The game chat portion of the show doesn't have the same problem. My apologies!**DinoPark Tycoon was a game we originally brought up about a year ago when we covered Oregon Trail. It's another one of those games many us played in school in the early 90's, but unlike Or...

Remember The Game #167 - The Simpsons: Bart vs The Space Mutants

Sep 29 • 01:32:03
I feel like I've been teasing a 'Bart vs The Space Mutants' episode of this show since we started it. It's not a great game, but I played it religiously as a kid, and I have a weird soft spot for it and it's many, many, many faults. I wasn't able to set up a regular episode of the show this week, so I'm rolling solo, and finally gushing about my favourite bad game of all-t...

Remember The Game #166 - Kirby‘s Dream Land

Sep 22 • 01:44:14
It's pretty rare that we get to talk about an iconic gaming character's debut, so episodes like this hit a little harder for me. And when you add in my previous traumatic experiences with Kirby's Dream Land, and I really feel like I'm taking a big step on the podcast this week. 
 
And if you're wondering, "how someone could have a traumatic experience with a Kirby game?" Wel...
