Bio not provided
Probably one of the game I played the most in my life, partly due to my college roomate being the only decent competition I could have, even though he beat me 2 times out of three.And about that Screen looking thing. You're supposed to screen look! It's part of the game. That's why in this game and Mario Kart 64 most of the courses have distinctive colors. Being able to multitask a screen look in your gameplay is a skill, not a cheat.

I'm disappointed in you, Hunter. Saying DKC3 is the best and then completely bashing Diddy Kong? He's the fastest character in all of them and the easiest to control, especially for the roll-jumps. Kiddy Kong is a PAIN, however way you put it. DKC3 had great ideas, but mix Kiddy Kong with some utterly frustrating stages that really started the hoarding tendencies of Rare and you get a game that is well below the first two.
Mario Kart however! PURE BLISS!

I have the first InterAct SuperPad you show. Like the MadCatz, the stick stays tight even now, but the buttons are horrible. Even with the bad sticks of my other controllers, this one remains the final choice in 4-player battles. Good job, by the way.

I was just thinking about Super Mario Deluxe and couldn't remember the additions. Looks like I'll get this one sooner than I thought. Good work.

Product placement games? I'm lovin' it! Good showdown. Funny how both Pepsiman and Coca-Cola Kid were only released in Japan. I'd obey my thirst and vote for that or Tapper, but, let's face it, they're not really good to the last drop. I'm really not a fan of the King of Beers, but, hey, Have it your way. As for Pepsi, i'd drink more, but I'd rather live for now. Anyway, I think I'm gonna gather 'round the good stuff and go with the Turtle Power.

Let me have the honor of being the first to confirm that there is no Canada bashing in this episode. I like the 4 people format. It means three people can be wrong at the same time now.
Happy holidays folks. Tough choice this week, I really like the mod of Lemmings Jaso brought... Wait a minute... That was Hunter? What's going on here?

Where do I start? First off, *slow clap*You guys all make sense, it's incredible. Goldeneye's multiplayer has never generated a single parcel of enjoyment from my part. I never had a N64 back in the days, so when anyone wants to play he's automatically better than me or he's a Proxity Mine Santa Claus.Chip's Challenge looks horrible, sounds horrible and some of the stages are just excruciating. I do like it, but I can find so many reason why someone wouldn't that I can't say anything. I thought people didn't like it much in fact. I even put it on a top 10 list of games I enjoyed that no one else did. (A list battle against 1 More Castle's very own list writer)As for Jason, I disagree with the comparison with DKC and Super Metroids. In these games, the bonuses were hidden. In itself finding a secret bonus level that gave you lives and coins was the reward. Mario 64 explicitely showed you 5 stars per level and also clearly mentioned the bonus star for collecting 100 coins. In the end, the reward for the 120 stars is nothing more than a bragging trophy. You didn't say "I got a special jump" back in the days, you said "Did you know Yoshi was in Mario 64?" The normal ending sequence is more rewarding than that. Plus, you enter the same stages over and over with different objectives, just as if you were replaying a stage just for a special achievement. It basically forced every subsequent game to have this type of gameplay instead of going the Crash Bandicoot route. The worst part? With Super Mario 3D Land, Mario started the exact opposite movement again. He really is a video game dictator.Sorry for the long comment, but you guys have made me realize... if all games can be hated with reasonable arguments like this, are all games bad/evil? Should we stop playing them? My life is crumbling around me!

Yeah, it's supposed to be Quebec City in the Province of Quebec, Canada. Kind of like New York City, New York, but we just don't say city in French.
About Evoland... what can I say that I didn't mention in my review. I can't say the game is bad, far from it, but it is obviously an extension of a game that was made in a couple hours. I don't want to write a full on blog here so I'll just say I wish it would've been the masterpiece that idea deserved to be.

Week after week I imagine the kind of stunts we'd have to pull to give Hunter and Bailey a "proper" tour of the Canada they have learned to love on this podcast.

This was one hell of a post-show discussion. I'm disappointed in the lack of discussion questions. Your fans are crap, I hope you realize that.
@JoshuaCaleb75 @ericmhunter @Chronoslinger @NintendoLegend See, now i'm the one who will get tomato thrown at my face, but the Genesis controller makes the worst cheap plastic noises! Probably because of the stiff buttons.

So... Color a Dinosaur was released after Mario Paint, wasn't it? I guess that says it all. Here's an interesting site for Barney in general... http://bimshwel.com/renk/barney/why.htmAs for Dinosaur for Hire, when I heard the name, the following image came to mind: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hFDnjwe2w0
In short, this was a good week. Very good week.
I absolutely LOVE the header picture for this podcast. It wasn't that much of a trainwreck... maybe a toy trainwreck?Glad to see some good hunting picks, but what's with Jason and cows? First Diablo II's cow level, now this? I think you should see someone about this.

What a great idea for a list. I wish I would've stolen it before... Some great choices up there and all fun games. It's a shame Lawnmower simulator couldn't make the cut. Oh, and I thought for sure you were going to include Yoshi's Island in there for babysitting.

@ericmhunter And, as we all know, Capcom have made great decisions with the Mega Man franchise. (Canadian sarcasm)
