  • Episode 250: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 250 - Mario Party 2

    28/05/2021 Duración: 01h20min

    To celebrate our 250th episode, Earl and Jurek are back recording in person! The guys are joined by their friends John and Kat and the four of them play Mario Party 2 on the Nintendo 64! It feels great to be playing something that isn't for the NES or SNES! While they don't get a whole game in, Mario Party 2 still offers plenty of fun! They also discuss their favorite and least favorite parts of quarantine! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Saturday May 22, 2021. We're back recording in person, and as is par for the course for this show, there were a few audio issues! We've got to get back into the swing of things, so thanks for understanding Revelers! So glad to no longer be recording remotely! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 249: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 249 - Fire n' Ice

    14/05/2021 Duración: 01h03min

    This week Jurek and Earl play Fire n' Ice on the NES! This game is the sequel to a game they've previously played on the podcast, Solomon's Key! It turns out that Fire n' Ice is a lot less stressful than Solomon's Key, and that's a good thing! This game is actually quite fun, featuring a fun puzzle solving mechanic using blocks of ice! It looks and controls great, but the music is really nothing to write home about. The guys have some serious fun playing this one, though! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Saturday May 8, 2021. Just a reminder that we're now on an every-other week release schedule. Also, don't forget to check out twitch.tv/retrogamingrevelry on Friday nights at 7pm central (on the off weeks) to hang out and play games with Earl! The next two are Friday May 14th and Friday May 28th. Hope to see you there, Revelers! Thanks for listening!

  • Episode 248: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 248 - Operation Logic Bomb

    28/04/2021 Duración: 01h11min

    This week Earl and Jurek play Operation Logic Bomb for the Super Nintendo! This is a game that neither of the guys have ever played before and it turns out they weren't missing much! The game plays well enough and the music is fine, but it's just a little boring. There are better "search and destroy" type games on the SNES, but this one will do in a pinch! The guys also have a lively discussion about food! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Saturday April 24, 2021. It happened faster than we thought, but we are now officially on the "every-other week" release schedule. This episode is releasing a little earlier than planned so you Revelers have a little time to learn about what we're doing on the off-weeks! We talk about it in the episode, but please join me (Earl) at twitch.tv/retrogamingrevelry every-other Friday starting this Friday April 30th at 7pm US central time! I'll be streaming retro games and hanging out with you, the Revelers! For now I'll be playing retro games

  • Episode 247: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 247 - Twinbee

    16/04/2021 Duración: 01h56s

    This week Jurek and Earl take control of a couple of anthropomorphic air crafts as they play Twinbee on the NES! This game turns out to be pretty fun, only hampered by... you guessed it, the difficulty! Twinbee was extremely popular in Japan, but not so much in North America, so neither of the guys know too much about the series. There are certainly some interesting things about this game though! Come have a drink with us and find out what they are! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Saturday April 3, 2021. We drop some news in this episode, Revelers. Due to Jurek's increasingly busy schedule, the show will be moving to releasing every other week, instead of every week. But fear not, there is a plan in the works for the off weeks, so stay tuned for news on that! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 246: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 246 - Psycho Dream

    09/04/2021 Duración: 01h09min

    This week Earl and Jurek play a little known game called Psycho Dream for the Super Nintendo! Neither of the guys had ever played this game before, and they come to find out there is a reason for that, which is this game is the very definition of the word "mediocre". Nothing really stands out, as it's a typical platformer of the time, with no real memorable mechanics, music, or art. The game plays fine, and has a few fun moments, but for the most part, it can probably be skipped by most gamers. The guys also discuss some of their favorite music! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday March 26, 2021. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 245: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 245 - Kung-Fu Heroes

    26/03/2021 Duración: 01h04min

    This week Jurek and Earl harness their chi and whoop some 8-bit butt as they play Kung-Fu Heroes on the NES! This game turns out to be fairly fun, but suffers from the same thing as so many games of this era, the crushing difficulty! The guys couldn't even make it past level 1-4! They figured they must not have known about a game mechanic or something, because the previous three levels were fairly easy. However, the music is all 12-bar blues tracks and kind of slaps! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday March 19, 2021. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 244: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 244 - Mighty Bomb Jack

    19/03/2021 Duración: 01h07min

    This week Earl and Jurek play Mighty Bomb Jack on the NES! What an odd little game! The movement takes a little getting used to, but it's surprisingly fluid for an early NES game! The game doesn't seem to be too difficult, but likely requires a great amount of memorization for some of the later levels! The music is... fine. The guys also take a Revelers suggestion and find a new source for discussion questions! It's a great resource, but we'd still prefer to hear about the discussion questions you want us to discuss, so please continue to send them in! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday March 5, 2021. We took a week off and you didn't even notice, Revelers! That means we're all caught up on releasing episodes! Thanks for listening!

  • Episode 243: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 243 - Prehistorik Man

    12/03/2021 Duración: 01h18min

    This week Jurek and Earl go on yet another caveman romp as they play Prehistorik Man for the Super Nintendo! Very surprisingly, the game turns out to be pretty fun. While it was likely lost to the masses in the sea of generic SNES platformers, this game packs in a lot of charm! It's funny, the music is good, and it looks fantastic! The controls are a little slippery, but you get used to them. The guys also field a Reveler requested discussion question! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday February 26, 2021. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 242: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 242 - Punch-Out!

    05/03/2021 Duración: 01h13min

    This week Earl and Jurek once again enter the virtual squared-circle as they play Punch-Out! on the NES! This game is an absolute classic and a must-play for any retro game enthusiast! It's incredibly difficult, but can become easier if you learn the proper timing of hits. Spoiler alert! The guys don't have a clue what the proper timing should be for anything in this game, but they still manage to have a blast with it! They also discuss the long awaited return of Nintendo Directs! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday February 19, 2021. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 241: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 241 - Tuff E Nuff

    26/02/2021 Duración: 01h16min

    Hey Punks! Are you Tuff E Nuff to listen to a podcast where two dudes play Tuff E Nuff on the Super Nintendo?! We sure hope so, because that's what we're playing this week! This game might just be the very definition of the words "mediocre fighting game". It is... bland, to say the least. Nothing much stands out in this game, except for maybe the absolutely terrible cover art! Jurek and Earl still manage to have a little fun with this game, but it will definitely go into the "no need to ever play again" pile of games. Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday February 12, 2021. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 240: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 240 - Wrecking Crew

    20/02/2021 Duración: 01h13min

    Well, it's been another 10 episodes and it's time for a Mario game! The guys are scraping the bottom of the barrel for more Mario games to play while this pandemic lingers, and this just might be the last one for a while. This week the guys play Wrecking Crew on the NES! While not a traditional Mario game, the two main characters are Mario and Luigi, so it counts! The game actually turns out to be quite fun, if not a little simplistic, but that is to be expected from early NES games. The guys also take a Reveler requested discussion question! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday February 5, 2021. Some day we'll get caught up on releasing episodes, but that day is not today! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 239: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 239 - Super Dodgeball

    13/02/2021 Duración: 01h22min

    This week Jurek and Earl try their hands at Super Dodgeball on the NES! They play a little single player mode but where the game really shines is in it's 2-player mode! The guys have an absolute blast facing off against each other! The game controls well enough, the music is great, and it looks fantastic. What more could you want out of an NES game?! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday January 29, 2021. We're still an episode behind, but like we've said every week for the past month, we'll get caught up eventually! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 238: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 238 - Super Valis IV

    05/02/2021 Duración: 01h08min

    This week Earl and Jurek play a little known game called Super Valis IV for the Super Nintendo! The game is "little known" for a reason. This might just be the most mediocre platformer ever made. It's in no way bad, but it's also in no way good. As Thanos once said: "Perfectly balanced, as all things should be." This game is screaming for some polish. It's like they started making it, ran out of money, and just released whatever bare-bones game was left-over. Not the best game we've played on the show, but also not the worst. Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday January 22, 2021. We're still one episode behind, but we'll get it out there eventually. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 237: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 237 - Eliminator Boat Duel

    29/01/2021 Duración: 01h10min

    This week Jurek and Earl enter a virtual boat race as they play Eliminator Boat Duel on the NES! Earl was very worried there wasn't enough content in this game to get a full episode out of, but boy, was he wrong! While this game probably wasn't very popular due to it's lackluster title, it turns out it's actually incredibly fun to play! It features surprisingly good music and some genuinely funny dialogue. The guys have a blast playing it! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday January 15, 2021. We're still behind one episode. Hopefully we get it out soon so we're all caught up. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 236: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 236 - Donkey Kong Country 3 part 2

    23/01/2021 Duración: 01h13min

    This week Earl and Jurek continue to play Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble on the Super Nintendo! Last time, the guys managed to beat the first world. This time, they are a little farther in the game and get a chance to explore some pretty wacky levels! The guys also discuss which video game character they'd most like to party with! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday January 8, 2021. We are still a week behind on releasing episodes, but we'll get caught up at some point. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 235: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 235 - Donkey Kong Country 3 part 1

    15/01/2021 Duración: 01h09min

    This week Jurek and Earl once again take control of everyone's favorite primate family as they play Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble on the Super Nintendo! Despite the terribly long and tongue twistery title, this game is super fun! As one of the last games released for the SNES, this game has all the bells and whistles! It looks great, sounds great, and most of all, plays great! The guys manage to beat the first world, but they just couldn't get enough of this game so they will be back with part 2 next week! They also field a Reveler requested discussion question. Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday January 1st, 2021. We're a couple weeks behind on releasing episodes, so apologies for that, Revelers! We'll get back on track one of these days! Thanks for listening!

  • Episode 234: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 234 - Journey to Silius

    08/01/2021 Duración: 01h09min

    HAPPY NEW YEAR, REVELERS!! To celebrate the new year, Earl and Jurek play Journey to Silius on the NES! (Shhh! We're just pretending Journey to Silius is a New Year's themed game!) The game turns out to be pretty difficult, but that is nothing new with these NES games! However, the music in this game is phenomenal and might just be some of the best on the system. The guys don't make it very far in the game, but they have fun trying while also discussing their retro gaming resolutions! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Sunday December 27, 2020. Apologies for the lateness of this episode! It's all my (Earl's) fault! Things get tricky around the holidays! Anyway, we sincerely hope everyone had a happy new year! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 233: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 233 - The Ignition Factor

    02/01/2021 Duración: 01h15min

    This week Jurek and Earl take the role of firemen as they play The Ignition Factor on the Super Nintendo! This episode also kinda sorta doubles as our Christmas episode! The game turns out to be pretty fun, but the controls can be a little wonky at times. The music, what little of it there is, is actually quite good and is surprisingly reminiscent of old school RPG's. The guys also discuss their very first video game memories. Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday December 18, 2020. Happy holidays, Revelers! We got a little behind in releasing episodes due to the holidays, but we should be back on track now. In fact, our New Years episode will be releasing tomorrow! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 232: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 232 - Clu Clu Land

    18/12/2020 Duración: 01h12min

    This week Earl and Jurek try their hands at one of the first games to be released on the NES, and that game is Clu Clu Land! Earl did not have high hopes for this episode, but the game actually turns out to be kind of fun, at least once you get a handle on the controls! In fact, the guys might just try and get the world record 2-player speed run for the game, since it's apparently never been done, which means literally ANY time will be the record! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday December 11, 2020. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Episode 231: Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 231 - Zelda II part 2

    11/12/2020 Duración: 01h19min

    This week Jurek and Earl continue playing Zelda II: The Adventure of Link for the NES! This time they start a little farther into the game than the very beginning and attempt to take on dungeon number 2! As you can imagine, it does not go very well. The game continues to be extraordinarily difficult! However, at least there is some good discussion about Zelda games in this episode! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday December 4, 2020. We got some new gear, Revelers! Hopefully it will make us sound a little better while we continue to record remotely. Let us know what you think by tweeting us @RetroRevelry! Thanks for listening, Revelers!
