In this episode Greg and Joe are joined by guest host Liam as he brings to the table a game that got released in Japan and Europe in the 90's but did not get a US release until last year -- Pop'n'Twinbee! Part of the Twinbee shooting franchise by Konami, this colorful and anime styled game is a classic vertical shooter with a weird power up system …
 
The theme of today's episode is "Who thought this was a good idea?" Who thought it was a good idea to release a 6-year-old western computer RPG on a system that had some of the best RPGs for consoles? Who thought it was a good idea to make a game based on an imperiled animated sitcom that no one seemed to want? And who thought it was a good idea to…
 
We have the good, the bad, and the indifferent today, and you might be a little surprised to find out which one is which. Cacoma Knight is the one Emmy and Link don't have strong opinions one way or another about. It's not terrible, but it's basically just another version of Qix, an arcade game that goes back to the 80s. We talk about the flaws and…
 
In this special episode Joe is again invited to share with Greg (and our dear listeners) about some more SNES games he has experience with that have already been covered on the podcast. Tune into this episode to hear Joe's thoughts and Greg's reactions on five more classic SNES games! Any questions, comments, etc can be left on our FB page or e-mai…
 
Another month down, another Nintendo Power issue to talk about, and another episode of SNEScapades that goes on longer than an hour. In this episode, Link and Emmy discuss Jurassic Park, interesting controllers, cute teenage robots, iffy Nintendo science, and games you can play with your dad (or maybe your imagined younger self as the mid-life cris…
 
In this episode Greg and Joe are joined by fellow podcaster and return guest host Will as he brings Super Adventure Island us to discuss! This game feels like a port of the classic Adventure Island games from the NES (although it's actually a sequel) as you once again play Master Higgins trying to jump, axe, swim, and skateboard his way across five…
 
In this special episode of the SNES Podcast, Greg and Joe are joined by guest host Jala of the Duckfeed Network in discussing one of her favorite games of all time -- Chrono Trigger! We have covered this game in the past on the podcast but due to the length of the time since that episode went up we decided it was time to revisit it and give some ne…
 
It's the last episode for May of 1993 and we're talking about two firsts. The first casino game compilation and the first of two Carmen Sandiego games that ended up on the Super NES. First we discuss Vegas Stakes, a compilation of several popular casino games that add a little flavor in the form of AI friends to join you and random events that can …
 
In this episode of the SNES Podcast Greg and Joe discuss the first game of one of the 'forgotten' RPG franchises -- Lufia and the Fortress of Doom! Despite five games being made in this franchise, the games get little notice today and most people, if they recall Lufia at all, think of it as a 'second rate RPG' on the SNES and for the very high enco…
 
As we start to wind down May of 93, we've only got a few games left to talk about. On today's show, Link and Emmy are talking about Super Turrican and Taz-Mania. Taz-Mania was a strange game on the SNES, using racing game-like mechanics in an action game. They game isn't amazing, but it is kinda unique and worth talking about. Also worth talking ab…
 
In this episode of the SNES Podcast, Greg and Joe discuss the weird and wacky puzzle game Yoshi's Cookie! This game started life as a rejected arcade game and Nintendo liked the SNES version enough that they licensed the game and made NES and GB ports while allowing Bullet Point Software to use Nintendo characters for the SNES version. We discuss t…
 
It's giant robot tanks, fishing, and cyberpunk rpgs. Three games that couldn't be more different. Despite not being your typical SNES games, both Emmy and Link walked away mostly positive on these games. Both MechWarrior and Shadowrun are based on tabletop games by a company called FASA, so this episode starts with a quick rundown of that company b…
 
In this episode of the SNES Podcast, Greg and Joe are joined by special guest Ferg of the Atari 2600 Game by Game Podcast to look at another one of Ferg's favorite SNES games -- Sanrio World Smash Ball! A Japanese only release, this action/sports game uses characters from the Sanrio catalog such as Hello Kitty as you battle either against the AI or…
 
We've got three 2D, sidescrollers today. Some are alright, some aren't very good. None are amazing. None are awful. One has some cool things that make it stand out, another is interesting in the ways it falls short, and the last isn't really interesting at all, but won't ruin your day. We start with Alien 3, and though proper horror isn't really so…
 
In this special episode Greg and Joe are joined by Kris of the Stone Age Gamer and Waveback podcasts as he brings one of his favorite SNES games for us to talk about -- Tin Star! An on-the-rails first and third person shooter, you play a robot sheriff in this wacky game as you try to restore order to one town. We discuss how the game plays, reviews…
 
In this episode Greg and Joe cover a Konami platformer based off a popular early 90's TV show -- Tiny Toon Adventures! In this game you control Buster Bunny as he tries to navigate through a bunch of cartoon inspired landscapes. We discuss how the game plays, how it compares to the show, and how it holds up today. Any questions, comments, etc can b…
 
There is so much to talk about in this May 1993 issue of Nintendo Power, that we needed a super-sized episode cram it all in. We're gonna talk Batman Returns, The Wonder Years, Dave, the Mario Bros. movie, Kawasaki jet skis, defunct comics! What more could you ask for? Oh, I guess we could talk about some games as well. We'll be discussing Batman R…
 
In this episode of the SNES Podcast, Greg and Joe keep the Godzilla theme going as we cover the OTHER game on the SNES! Godzilla: Godzilla: Kaijū Daikessen was a Japanese only game where you control one of 12 of the famous Kaiju in one on one fighting battles, a la Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Planned for a US release but never happening, we b…
 
It's finally here! The final episode for April 1993 contains a classic. The Lost Vikings may not be a name that carries quite the legacy of a Mario or a Halo Chief (that's the character's name, right?) but it ought to be up there because this game is pure 2D puzzle-platforming bliss. It's a shame then that we didn't get to talk a little more about …
 
In this special episode Greg and Joe are joined by Phil, AKA The No Swear Gamer, as we cover Super Godzilla! All three of us are fans of the franchise and with the recent movie we decided it was a good time to cover this quirky and decisive game. It's a strange game and we pick it apart as we cover what's good and bad about it. Any questions, comme…
 
SNEScapades is going to the movies today. We're discussing three games that were based on movies. First up we talk about the very strange Robin Williams movie Toys. The game it's based on isn't very good, but it gives us the chance to talk about Absolute Entertainment and to talk once again about prominent devs like David Crane and Garry Kitchen. C…
 
In this special episode of the SNES Podcast, Greg and Joe are joined by long time friend of the show and fellow Podcaster Aaron Hickman (Genesis Gems) as we cover one of the strangest games on the system -- Mohawk and Headphone Jack! Made by some of the same people who made Busby, this fast paced Sonic-like platformer is known for it's really tripp…
 
On today's show, Emmy and Link talk about a pair of games that merge genres together in interesting ways that produce less than stellar results. First up is Super Ninja Boy. It's a game that combines the dungeon-crawling of an RPG and swaps out the turn-based battle mechanics for a belt-scrolling brawler; an idea that sounds good on paper. Then it'…
 
In this episode Joe and Greg cover a game based off a cartoon that Joe watched in his youth -- AHHH Real Monsters! Based off a Nick show from the 90's, this platformer looks like it's straight from the cartoon but how does it play and hold up today? Tune in to find out! Any questions, comments, etc can be left on our FB page or e-mailed to thesnesp…
 
On today's show Emmy Zero and SteampunkLink talk about the sequel (kinda) to Rival Turf. Can Brawl Brothers improve upon the janky but fun foundation laid by its predecessor, or does it fix little and add a bunch of frustrating mechanics no one ever could have wanted in a brawler? They also discuss the humble beginnings of the franchise that would …
 
In this episode Greg and Joe are joined by pinball wizard and podcaster Nick as we talk about another SNES pinball game -- Battle Wizard! A Japanese only game that featured four main tables using popular Bandai properties such as Ultraman, this game features a mix of multi screen pinball action and some action game elements as you advance across a …
 
The time has come! SteampunkLink gets to talk about and not shut the hell up about American Gladiators! Emmy and Link talk about the old show and and review this game which... isn't very good. Speaking of things that aren't very good, Link and Emmy also talk about Battle Grande Prix. A game as generic as it's title would suggest. I'm not even sure …
 
In this episode Greg and Joe look at another obscure Japanese game -- UFO Karmen Yakisoban! A beat-em-up marketing tie in game, you control the mascot of a company's instant noodles as you try to get back your space princess from a deranged American with a kettle on his head. Confused? Listen to this episode to help! We cover the game and how it pl…
 
We're entering a new month in video game history and that means it's time for another Playing with Power episode featuring the April 1993 issue of Nintendo Power. Star Fox is on the cover as Nintendo continues it's absolute deluge of Star Fox content. Not only does the issue contain a little information about every Star Fox stage across all three d…
 
In this special episode, Greg and Joe are joined by Ollie as we discuss one of his favorite games -- Cannon Fodder! This British created Amiga game was a fun and witty take on war in a RTS setting, and was very popular with numerous ports of the game on other computers and consoles. The SNES version was PAL only, however, and is rather uncommon tod…
 
It's the end of March 1993, and since the final game for the month happens to be Tecmo Super NBA Basketball, it's time to get another sport out of the way for the year. Luckily for Emmy and Link, there were only two of them (the other being EA's NBA Showdown.) Despite having little knowlege of and no interest in the game of basketball (or professio…
 
In this episode Greg and Joe look at the sequel to Jurassic Park on the SNES -- JP 2: The Chaos Continues! This game is very different then the first game, in which you have to try to resort order to the island in a very Contra-isk style of gameplay. We discuss the game and how it plays and how it holds up today. Any questions, comments, etc can be…
 
Two military games and a brawler. The games aren't great, but the conversation is still interesting. What every became of Microprose and the folks who founded it? Does Super Strike Eagle take flight sims on the SNES in a bold new direction? Can Link learn to love Super Conflict despite the hexagonal tiles? Does The Combatribes live up to its spirit…
 
In this very special episode of the SNES podcast, Joe and I review a book that recently came out that does feature a SNES in it's twisted saga so we felt we could make a exception to our usual game policy. ;) "Smoke and Mirrors" is a digital (and soon to be physical) book written by Mike James, about the history of one of the most infamous retro ga…
 
Can you call something a mini-episode when it's still 45 minutes long? I dunno, but that's what we're calling this anyway because we're not ranking any new games. Instead, we're re-ranking some games based on suggestions from our guests on the Holiday episode. Derek felt that Mario Kart should be higher than Top Gear and Kamijace felt that Soul Bla…
 
In this episode Greg and Joe look at the obscure SNES game Lock On! A sequel to a game originaly released on the Gensis and followed by a game that was Japan only, this After Burner inspired game has you going on air-to-air, air-to-ground, and special missions in four real planes. We talk about the gameplay, graphics, music, and if it's worth playi…
 
Today's episode of SNEScapades puts a big ol' spotlight on Star Fox. If you're not familiar, it's a game about animals in space. I'm sure that explains everything. So how is this one? Does it hold up? Can long-time Star Fox fan Emmy Zero convince newcomer Steampunk Link of the game's greatness? Does the debut Super FX chip-enabled SNES game still i…
 
In this episode Joe brings another Japan only SNES game to the table for us to look at -- DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's Quest! A sequel to the NES game Milon's Quest, this game is focused on just platforming as you travel along with Milon through various worlds to save his friend and defeat the bad guy. We discuss how the game plays, the look and sounds,…
 
March of 1993 starts out with a thud as Link and Emmy discuss two games with UK roots that landed on the SNES. First, they discuss Spindizzy Worlds which is a follow-up to the 1986 computer game Spindizzy. What does the creator of the original game think about this unsanctioned sequel? Does it work at all on the SNES? Could this game possibly have …
 
In this last episode of 2020, Greg and Joe take a look at a European only SNES game -- Waterworld! Many games were planned off this 1995 movie but due to the movie tanking, many versions either were canceled or had limited releases. The SNES version of Waterworld was planned for a world wide release but only came out in Europe. We look at this plat…
 
Let's face it. It's been a rough year. We thought it would be fun to get a bunch of other podcasters to talk about some of their favorite holiday memories involving video games. It's a long one, so pull up a chair, grab a mug of hot chocolate, and settle in for some pleasant conversations. If you aren't already listening to them and/or following th…
 
The first two games of March 93 aren't leaving us with the best impression. We get a substandard (but functional) fighting game and a Koei game that's not as hard to parse as some of their strategy games, but is incredibly slow to get started. Link and Emmy were so disappointed with Inindo: Way of the Ninja that they have decided that the rest of t…
 
In this episode Greg and Joe are joined by George as we discuss the arcade port of one of Midway's best arcade games -- WWF Wrestlemania! A mix of Mortal Kombat and NBA Jam in how it plays, we discuss the game itself, how the SNES version of it does, and how it holds up today. Any questions, comments, etc can be left on our FB page or e-mailed to t…
 
This is a big one folks! We do some deep dives on all sorts of topics while flipping through the pages of Nintendo Power from March 1993. We talk more about the art, specifically the covers from this era of Nintendo Power. We also chat about the Storm of the Century, Canadian media review shows for kids, obscure cartoons only SteampunkLink seems to…
 
Welcome to the 150th episode of the SNES Podcast! Combining the history of doing specials every 50 episodes and also for doing one at the end of a year, in this episode Greg asked Joe to pick six games that had been covered in the past and share this thoughts about them. We discuss the games he picks and why he included them. Any questions, comment…
 
Welcome to Talkin' Toons. This episode of SNEScapades is going to feature a lot of talk about cartoons because both games being discussed today are adaptations of cartoons from the early 90s. We're discussing The Addams Family: Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt which is based on the 90s Hanna Barbara cartoon (not to be confused with the 70s Addams Family ca…
 
It's been a rough year and the salt in the wound that is 2020 is that most of us have to spend Thanksgiving alone or at least can't gather with our extended families like we have in the past. So if you're doing the responsible thing and staying home, maybe this podcast can help you pass the time. This year for our Quick, Change the Channel special,…
 
WHOO HOO! EPISODE 50! We didn't really do anything special for this one other than talk about Super Valis IV and Sonic Blast Man, but they were fun to talk about! Sonic Blast Man has nothing to do with a certain blue hedgehog, but is instead a belt-scrolling brawler adapted from an arcade game that people were meant to literally, physically punch! …
 
In this episode Greg and Joe look at the one of the rarest and most expensive games on the SNES -- Higane! An action/platformer game with a weird mix of Cyberpunk and Japanese Ninja/Samurai elements, this hard unique game seems to have been a Blockbuster only release, making the game very hard to find today. We discuss the game, how it plays, and i…
 
If you listen to the show at all, you know that Link and Emmy aren't really sports people. They say it every time they have to review a sports game after all. So to make the sports games a bit easier to handle, they will be cramming every game by sport and year into their own episodes as they come across them. Today, the duo are talking about three…
