    10/07/2020 Duración: 01h37min

    This week Jurek and Earl do something a little different on the show! Instead of playing a game like normal, the guys will each be listing and discussing their personal top 10 video games of all time! Should be a lively discussion! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday June 26, 2020. We took a week off for the 4th of July but we're back! Let us know if you liked this episode and might want more of this type of show in the future! And please send us your own personal top 10 games of all time! It's harder to come up with than you'd think! Thanks for listening, Revelers!

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 210 - Super Mario Bros. 2

    26/06/2020 Duración: 01h23min

    This week Earl and Jurek are revisiting the very first Mario game they played on the show! They will be playing Super Mario Bros. 2 on the NES! They last played this game exactly 200 episodes ago, so the guys thought they'd look at it again, now that they have a little more podcasting experience! As it turns out, this game is still one of the all time greats! It also inspired each of them to come up with a "Top 10 video games of all time" list! Stay tuned for that next week! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday June 19, 2020. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep 209 - DK Jr. & DK 3

    19/06/2020 Duración: 01h20min

    This week Jurek and Earl play two classic games on the NES! First up is Donkey Kong Jr.! This game is a must-play! The port to the NES was very well done, unlike the Atari 2600 port, which is a hot mess! Seriously, go watch some video of that port... it's barely recognizable as DK Jr.! The guys then try out the much less loved Donkey Kong 3! This game is super weird and barely fits into the Donkey Kong mythos, but it's still very fun to play! There is no music break in this episode as neither of these games features much music at all! The guys also discuss the newly revealed Playstation 5! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday June 12, 2020. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 208 - Wild Guns

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 208 - Wild Guns

    08/06/2020 Duración: 01h29min

    This week Earl and Jurek head to the wild west, or rather a sci-fi version of the wild west, as they play Wild Guns on the SNES! The game turns out to be pretty fun, despite it's crazy hard difficulty! The guys would both recommend playing this game with a friend, because it seems like it might be impossible to complete alone! Difficulty aside, the game looks and sounds fantastic! If you've got the SNES Switch Online service then definitely give this game a try! The guys also discuss the recent civil unrest in their fair city of Minneapolis. Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday June 5, 2020. We're putting this episode out early to try and keep it more timely with recent current events. Due to this, there will be no episode released this Friday, but we'll be back on a regular schedule after that. We hope everyone is staying safe out there! Keep protesting! Black. Lives. Matter. Thanks for listening, Revelers! ~Earl

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 207 - Rygar

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 207 - Rygar

    05/06/2020 Duración: 01h15min

    This week Jurek and Earl grab their Diskarmors and head off to save the world as they play Rygar on the NES! This is one of those rare games that neither of the guys have ever played before! It is a very early metroid-vania type game and actually turns out to be pretty fun! The music is somewhat lacking, but it controls well. The game's difficulty is a little high, but that is to be expected from games of this era. Despite the difficulty, the game feels do-able. Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday May 22, 2020. This was a few days before the events of Memorial Day, so we obviously do not talk about them in this episode. As stated in the notes for episode 206, we will discuss those events in a future show. Keep protesting! It's working! Thanks for listening, Revelers! No Justice, No Peace. #BlackLivesMatter. ~Earl

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 206 - Super Tennis & Smash Tennis

    04/06/2020 Duración: 01h22min

    This week Earl and Jurek grab their virtual rackets and play two tennis games for the SNES! First up is Super Tennis! This game turns out to be pretty fun, but a little lackluster. It's a perfectly fine tennis game, but you might not get much out of it in today's day and age. The guys then try out Smash Tennis, AKA Super Family Tennis! Now this is a tennis game! It plays very similarly to Super Tennis, but features far superior music and has many more unique court styles to play on! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday May 15, 2020. Oh, how so much has happened since then. Long time Revelers will know that both Jurek and I call Minneapolis our home. On Memorial Day, the murder of George Floyd by 4 members of the Minneapolis Police Department, sparked an incredible movement for police reform. Lots of rioting and looting took place in our city because the people have had enough. We've been through some scary times and both Jurek and I are safe, but that is not important

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 205 - Blaster Master

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 205 - Blaster Master

    22/05/2020 Duración: 01h14min

    This week Jurek and Earl chase a radioactive frog down a hole as they play Blaster Master for the NES! This game is a must-play NES game and it turns out this is Jurek's first time playing it! The game is fantastic all around! It has intuitive controls and the music is outstanding! While the difficulty can be a bit much, it always feels do-able! Take an hour of your quarantine and come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday May 8, 2020. We are still a little behind on episode distribution but hopefully we'll catch up soon! Thanks for understanding! Once again, we hope you and your loved ones are all staying safe and healthy out there! Wear those masks, Revelers! Thanks for listening! ~Earl

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 204 - Pilotwings

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 204 - Pilotwings

    15/05/2020 Duración: 01h07min

    This week Earl and Jurek take to the skies as they play Pilotwings for the SNES! Roughly 200 episodes ago the guys played Pilotwings 64 and now they decided to check out it's predecessor! The game is extremely fun, although the controls can take a bit of getting used to. It's very touchy and can be a little hard to control. That said, the game looks and sounds great and is a blast to play! The guys also play a short round of Guess the Poorly Described Movie! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Saturday May 2, 2020. Once again, thanks for bearing with us during quarantine! Stay safe out there, Revelers! Thanks for listening! ~Earl

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 203 - Kirby Super Star

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 203 - Kirby Super Star

    08/05/2020 Duración: 01h22min

    This week Jurek and Earl continue doing the podcast quarantine style as they play Kirby Super Star for the SNES! This game is actually a collection of 8 different games, and some turn out much more fun than others! As a whole though, this game is very good! The fun pretty much never stops and it has a kick ass sound track to go with it! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday April 24, 2020. This was supposed to come out last week, but life got in the way! Sorry about the lack of episode, but if all goes to plan, you'll get two episodes this week! Thanks for bearing with us, Revelers! We hope you and your loved ones are all staying safe and healthy out there! Thanks for listening! ~Earl

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 202 - Vice: Project Doom

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 202 - Vice: Project Doom

    25/04/2020 Duración: 01h11min

    This week Earl and Jurek had big plans to play a Sega Genesis game quarantine style, but as it turns out, the Sega Genesis Classics game on the Switch is absolute trash! That means the guys had to pull an audible and play something else! They decided on Vice: Project Doom for the NES! The game actually turns out to be very fun. It features several different styles of play: Driving/racing, Side scrolling platformer, and on rails shooter! The game's difficulty ramped up quickly, but the guys still had some fun with it! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday April 17, 2020. I think we're finally getting the hang of this "recording remotely" thing! Also, with this episode's release we have finally caught back up to our regular recording schedule. For the uninformed, we generally record on a Friday and that episode gets released the following Friday. Due to Covid-19, our schedule got a little off but we are now back on track! Once again we hope everyone is staying safe and he

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 201 - Super Punch-Out

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 201 - Super Punch-Out

    24/04/2020 Duración: 01h10min

    This week Jurek and Earl continue doing the podcast quarantine style as they play Super Punch-Out on the SNES! While neither of the guys are particularly good at the game, they manage to have a lot of fun with it! This game looks really good and the music is top notch. The controls are fine, but perhaps they should have given the game a better tutorial? Or maybe the guys should have just read the manual! The guys also have a reveler requested discussion question! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday April 10, 2020. We're still recording remotely, so thanks for staying with us and excusing the less than stellar audio. Hopefully someday soon we'll be able to record in person again with our regular gear! We hope you all are staying safe and healthy out there! Thanks for listening, Revelers! ~Earl

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 200 - Dr. Mario

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 200 - Dr. Mario

    17/04/2020 Duración: 01h21min

    This week Earl and Jurek once again come at you quarantine style as they celebrate the 200th episode of the show by playing Dr. Mario for the NES! The guys figured it was the perfect game to play during this public health crisis! Dr. Mario is an absolute joy to play! While neither of the guys are particularly good at puzzle games, they both have massive amounts of fun while playing this game! The game controls great, looks good, and has some of the best songs on the NES! The guys also discuss a Reveler requested discussion question! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday April 3, 2020. We're still trying to figure out all the kinks with recording remotely, so there are once again a few audio issues with this episode. There is a small echo at some points, and for this we apologize! I think we've got it figured out for the future though, so that's good! Thanks for listening and thanks for understanding Revelers! We hope you all are staying safe and healthy out there!

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 199 - Double Dragon II

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 199 - Double Dragon II

    10/04/2020 Duración: 01h12min

    This week Jurek and Earl are coming at you quarantine style! The guys are together but separate for this episode (and the foreseeable future) as they play Double Dragon II on the NES! Or rather, they play it via the Nintendo Switch NES Online App! The guys find this game to be pretty fun! The music is pretty great and it looks good for an NES game. The only complaint they have would be the controls. The attack buttons change depending on which way you're facing and it's incredibly frustrating! The guys also have a discussion question from a long time Reveler! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on March 27, 2020. Since we had to use different gear than our normal setup to record this episode, please excuse any audio issues. Our levels are off and we were at the mercy of the internet! Hopefully we will get better at this quarantine style recording as we go on. Also, hopefully we don't have to do this too much longer! Thanks for understanding and we hope you all are staying safe

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 198 - Castle of Illusion

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 198 - Castle of Illusion

    04/04/2020 Duración: 01h30min

    This week Earl and Jurek play Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse on the Sega Genesis! The game turns out to be pretty great! It looks gorgeous, it controls well, and the difficulty seems to be just right! If the guys had to make one complaint, it might be that the music is just a little lackluster, but it's still quite serviceable! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday March 20, 2020. This was about a half a week before the Minnesota governor gave the stay-at-home order, so Jurek and I are recording in the same space for this one. Maybe it wasn't the smartest thing to do, but we both seem to be doing just fine. This episode is a little longer than normal, as we discuss the world events for quite some time. All episodes from here on out were/will be recorded from our separate homes, at least until the stay-at-home order is lifted. We really hope you all are taking care of yourselves and staying smart and staying healthy. Thanks for listening, Revelers!

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 197 - Shock Troopers

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 197 - Shock Troopers

    03/04/2020 Duración: 01h12min

    This week Jurek and Earl play Shock Troopers on the Neo-Geo! As it turns out, this game was never actually released for consoles back in the day and was ported from the arcade years later, which is the version we are playing. The game turns out to be incredibly fun! The music is top-notch and it looks fantastic! If the guys had one gripe, it would be the controls are a little wonky and take a bit of getting used to. Other than that, a fantastic game all around! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on March 13, 2020. This was the day the Minnesota governor declared no more gathering in large groups. Obviously, we still gathered on this day, as we figured 2 people is a pretty small group and it would be ok. In this episode you'll find us making all kinds of jokes about Coronavirus. I just want to let everyone know that we are taking this seriously, we were just making jokes, etc. to lighten the mood and cope with this new world we are living in. We hope everyone is staying safe an

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 196 - Festers Quest

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 196 - Fester's Quest

    27/03/2020 Duración: 01h10min

    This week Earl and Jurek are joined by their friend Andrew and the three of them play Fester's Quest on the NES! This game was recommended by Andrew due to his nostalgia for the game! As you can imagine, the guys have a pretty tough go at it, considering this game is notoriously hard! While they don't get very far, the game turns out to be rather enjoyable once you figure out what to do! Come have a drink with us! Cheers! NOTE: This episode was recorded on Friday March 6, 2020. This was just before the shit hit the fan, so to speak, regarding the Coronavirus, at least in Minnesota. I'm not sure we even mention the virus in this episode. A couple other episodes were recorded in between and will be released very soon, in which we do talk about it. All this to say we hope all you Reveler's and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy out there. Apologies for the few week lapse in episodes coming out. Obviously, things got a little crazy with work and life due to the virus. But we are back, and Jurek and I

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 195 - Gradius

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 195 - Gradius

    07/03/2020 Duración: 01h08min

    This week Jurek and Earl play Gradius on the NES to honor the recently passed Kazuhisa Hashimoto, the creator of the Konami Code! Gradius was the first game to use the code, giving your ship maximum power-ups once per level. You better believe the guys use the code liberally while playing! While the game is extremely difficult, it is still one of the better side-scrolling shooters on the NES. Come have a drink with us! Cheers! RIP Kazuhisa Hashimoto. None of us would have ever completed Contra without you. We salute you!

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 194 - Milons Secret Castle

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 194 - Milon's Secret Castle

    29/02/2020 Duración: 01h06min

    This week Earl and Jurek try out Milon's Secret Castle on the NES! This game might be the very definition of "Nintendo hard", but the guys actually manage to progress a little ways into it! Needless to say, that is NOT the norm for this podcast! The music is decent, but the rest of the game could use a little polish. The guys also discuss which video game they would turn into a Broadway musical! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 193 - Pokemon Snap

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 193 - Pokemon Snap

    22/02/2020 Duración: 01h02min

    This week Jurek and Earl grab their virtual cameras and head off in pursuit of some great pics of Pokemon as they play Pokemon Snap on the Nintendo 64! This is an odd little game that probably really only sold well due to having Pokemon in the title. There are only so many pictures you can take while riding on rails before boredom sets in. The game controls perfectly fine and the music is decent, but the fun runs out quickly. It's not the best N64 game, but it's also far from the worst! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!

  • Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 192 - The X-Men Comparison part 2

    Retro Gaming Revelry - Ep. 192 - The X-Men Comparison part 2

    16/02/2020 Duración: 01h11min

    This week Earl and Jurek continue the great X-Men comparison! This time the guys are playing X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse on the SNES! The game looks fantastic and the music is absolutely top-notch, but it suffers from the same thing the Sega X-Men game did: It's way too freakin' hard! So which game is better? Give us a listen and find out! Come have a drink with us! Cheers!
