Episode 22 – Kirby Super Star



It’s a (fat) bird!  It’s a (pink) plane!  No, it’s KIRBY!  And he’s a SUPER STAR!  Here for an appearance in the final Super Nintendo game before the switch to Nintendo 64, in an 8-in-1 side-scrolling & platforming adventure, inhaling enemies and exhaling pure, raw, fluffy, pink power!

 

Hosts Chris and Katie hop back in time and dig deep into their memory banks for this one, and at least one of them made it just about through the whole thing (two guesses who…) – but both had a lot of fun!  Cutters, plasma, floating, Grommet Races, and a debate about whether tomatoes are, in fact, fruits… this one has it all!

 

Flap your wings, hit your A buttons, do whatever you like, and join us for another adventure in dreamland!


Episode 21 – Street Fighter II



Round 21… PLAY!  We’re headed to Japan!  And Brazil!  And Thailand!  And, apparently, the U.S.S.R.!  Why?  Because it’s Street Fighter II time, and we’re flying all around the world to fun fight locales, dragon punches, yoga fires, and tiger knees!

 

Across the arcade, Sega Genesis, and Super Nintendo, this game showed up across a LOT of systems, and defined the 90s for a lot of kids growing up with fighting games.  Not to mention, an AMAZING(ly bad) movie featuring the talents of Raul Julia, and Jean-Claude Van Damme hamming it up for an hour and 40 minutes.

 

A new Trope of the Day, a frustrated Host Katie calling the computer a cheater, countries that no longer exist, and a small detour into a former game developer’s thigh fetish… this episode’s got it all!

 

HADOUKEN!
