Episode 081 – Not Sonic the Hedgehog (WCW vs. nWo games, 1997 and 1998)

This week in Your Parents Basement, the show has been taken over by a rogue element! We are no longer covering Sonic the  Hedgehog – and trust us, we’re so disappointed by that – and instead, we’re covering WCW vs. nWo World Tour from 1997, and WCW/nWo Revenge from 1998! Both are by Asmik Ace and AKI for the Nintendo 64. We’re joined by Steve’s buddy josh

  • 0:00 – Intro, which features the excellent title theme from the game we thought we’d be covering. Josh crashes the proceedings a few minutes in, so we segue from Sonic to wrasslin’ talk.
  • 46:00 – Emails! John Tetris wants to know about wrestlers as well.
  • 1:05:30 – Even though Brisket is out of the picture for today’s show, we still have to help some people in… Ask The Sweet Boys.
  • 1:11:00 – Snifferoo. WE’VE GOT TO CATCH THEM ALL!
  • 1:11:45 – Outtake.


– According to Price Charting, World Tour and Revenge are both cheaply priced. They go for $3.75 to $5 for the loose carts, and $13 to $18 if you want the box and manual included. In contrast, the more advanced No Mercy goes for $8 for the cart, and $27 for the box and manual.

– The awesome book that Steve mentions, Death of WCW by R.D. Reynolds and Bryan Alvarez, is available on Amazon.

  1. […] Mentioned prominently in last week’s show was WWF No Mercy, which was released on this day in 2000 by Asmik Ace and AKI. It’s still […]


  2. Best episode ever! N64 Aki games are still my all time favorite. You had me cracking up about Sting coming down from the rafters in a battle royal. I also agree that the new 2k games are good but nowhere near as good as the Aki games in their heyday.

    I still bust these out a couple times a year. It is pretty sad that of all competitive video fans, the Aki games are only ones I feel I can play on a competitive level. For about five years a few friends and I held regular tournaments on this for a toy foam belt as No Mercy champion.

    My favorite Aki moment was when I convinced three friends to do a 40 man Rumble with only pinfalls for elimination. We did 10 man team battle rules and it was epic! I taped the whole thing in five hours, including my brother freezing the system when he tossed his controller and it hit the n64 when his last guy was eliminated.

    Yup… 64 wrestling 4 life!
