As we regain our memories in the bizarre hybrid of 80’s sci-fi known as Flashback: The Quest for Identity, the crew discuss patriotic games in honor of ‘Murica day and why the English burn people on bonfires before setting off fireworks.
Two weeks was ample time to delve into Landstalker and its world of ludicrous controls, ballet brothels, and tricky platforming. Dan finishes, Tom goes missing, Jess leaves before the end of the show, and Eric gets drunk and plays Smash Brothers instead.
Inexplicable lesbianism and robotic crotch-hugging bugs feature heavily as we play Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix, just after discovering that Dan lives in the past and that internet wires are meant to stay plugged in.
With a century of episodes behind us we celebrate by playing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, sharing your favorite memories of the show, and sending a ghost to attack someone’s room by giving away the Jeeves box (and loads of other prizes!)
There’s much to be discovered this week: we learn that Castlevania Bloodlines stars a real-life serial killer, go on the hunt for treasure in the super-shiny Uncharted 4, and reveal our plans for the mysterious Jeeves Box (mmm, quite).
Dan made it home from Australia just in time for Jess to go mysteriously missing. In all the confusion, everyone forgot to play a game, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about what else we’re playing, Nintendo NX/Nintendo’s mad plans, this week’s big gaming
Scheduling conflicts aside, Eric and Jess team up to explore the universe of Ratchet & Clank, work on their Dan impressions, join a motorcycle gang, get in a bar fight, and analyze the depths of gaming memories in this ultra soft polyester blend edition of Factory Sealed.
Strap on your flight suit, give your jock buns a squeeze, and prepare your lug holes! We’re taking flight with Star Fox, Star Fox 64, and the cancelled Star Fox 2. We’ve also got more details on our monumental 100th episode and the mysterious Jeeves Box.
Violence is abounding this week as we subject ourselves to the undeniably terrible, but historically important Night Trap. We also weigh in on that Nintendo Zapper themed pistol, fighting games in general, and the most memorable games from each console.
