Episode 12 – Chuck Yeager’s Air Combat (feat. GamingAtTheEdgeOfTheWorld)



Our throttles are at 100%, afterburners are on, and we’re back with a special guest to talk about one of the best flight simulators of all time, Chuck Yeager’s Air Combat!

 

This episode, we’re chatting with the host of a great retro gaming channel on Twitch, GamingAtTheEdgeOfTheWorld, who brings us a perfect background of video gaming and real-world flying to break down all of the great things about this classic.

 

Unfortunately, we moved this episode up due to the passing of General Yeager, but we can celebrate his legacy and what he gave to countless future pilots, aeronautical engineers, and just general flying-fanboys/fangirls through this game.

 

Take a listen, and find all the great things about the game, and just how well Katie did at following the advice Chris gave about how to properly take off!


Episode 11 – Donkey Kong Country



Donkey and Diddy!  Cranky and Candy!  The whole Kong crew!  (And hey, don’t forget Funky!)  It’s DONKEY KONG COUNTRY time, on the Super Nintendo!  We’re rolling and jumping and launching our way through this jungle classic this week, and it’s barrels of fun (ba-dum-tss!).

 

Swing on by as hosts Chris and Katie break it down, with a special guest-hosting appearance from Producer-Host (Prost) Lisa!  Hear about her experiences and memories of it, and then the follow-up after all three played through the action… including Minecart Carnage, a.k.a. “THAT level…”

 

It’s a great one, and what a palate cleanser after a pair of 30-hour-long early RPGs!  Let’s do this!
