  • 0:00 – Intro, which is the rousing song from the second stage, Bloodpool.
  • 51:30 – Emails! The gang talks video game all-nights, jobs in vidya games, and potential games based on musical figures.
  • 1:17:15 – Snifferoo. Next week, we’re bad enough dudes to play the most American game of them all for the Fourth of July.


– According to Price Charting, and as discussed on the show, ActRaiser has retained its value pretty well. The original cart goes for $28.50, with the box and manual pushing the price up to $68. The sequel, which is just a straight-up action platformer, goes for a similar price.

– As mentioned on the show, a Kotaku article on randomizing The Legend of Zelda.
