Episode 007 – GoldenEye 007

The name’s Up With… Games We Grew Up With.


It’s Episode 007, which of course means we HAD to revisit the absolute classic multiplayer shooter from its era, GoldenEye 007 on the Nintendo 64!  From Severnaya to the Facility, the Klobb to Proximity Mines, Paintball Mode to Golden Guns, hosts Chris and Katie dive deep into this game that took the world by storm in 1997.


Sit back, relax with your favorite beverage (shaken, not stirred), and listen to this super-sized episode about everyone’s favorite super-spy!  We couldn’t nearly do justice to this amazing game in our normal episode length, so we decided to give it some extra time and dig deep.


For England, James…

Episode 6 – Road Rash II

It’s time to hop onto our motorcycles (whether the Shuriken 400 or Diablo 1000 N) and hit the road for some high-speed, chain-whipping, cop-avoiding, bike-popping action with 1992’s Road Rash II on the Sega Genesis!


In this episode, Chris and Katie navigate us through this classic and its blend of adrenaline, frustration, and yelling at the TV and each other growing up.  Take a listen as they remember the fun of knocking each other off their bikes, spinning chains above their heads, and desperately trying not to get busted by the police, and then see just how well it held up almost 30 years later.


It might not have the greatest musical score or graphics in the world, but this one kept the excitement going!  Let’s ride!
