  • 0:00 – Intro, which features the excellent title theme from the game.
  • 40:00 – Emails! We see how this is gonna go.
  • 56:45 – As always, we help out at least one person in… Ask the Sweet Boys.
  • 1:01:30 – Snifferoo. It’s the season to be thankful, and we were definitely be thankful next week with a certain game.

SHOW NOTES

– Because Umihara wasn’t ever released in the U.S., there isn’t Price Charting details on it. The Playstation Vita version goes for $25 to $30 on Amazon, and the Steam version is usually in the $10 to $15 range, depending on how “on sale” it is when you purcahse it.

– The best speedrun on YouTube currently is 1:46, which is utterly insane, even if assisted by tools.

– Kyle is the co-host of the Vaguely Entertaining podcast, which you can find here! Give it a listen, won’t ya?

SHOW NOTES

– According to Price Charting, Battle Clash is fairly cheap, costing around $4.50 for the loose cart and $14.60 for the box and manual included. The Super Scope itself is what will set you back, costing around $50 for the gun itself and $200 if you want the box and manual.

  • 27:00 – Huell has some reasons why the Game Boy version is… The Most Worst Game of All-Time.

  • 56:00 – Snifferoo. We’re playing a controversial Sega CD game, because it’s being re-released!

SHOW NOTES

– According to Price Charting, all versions of The Incredible Crash Dummies can be purchased for $3 to $16. The box and manual for the NES and SNES versions push the price up to $22 and $49, but really, these games aren’t especially worth any price you’d pay for them.

– While we mentioned LJN, the game’s publisher, on the show, we didn’t talk about the developing company, Gray Matter Inc. According to Moby Games, they were Canada’s biggest game developer at one time, and they do have some OK games on their dossier, like WWF King of the Ring and NHL All-Star Hockey. But, they also did Wayne’s World, another notoriously awful game.

  • 1:08:15 – Snifferoo. Next week’s show will be recorded from the 36 Chambers.

SHOW NOTES

– According to Price Charting, Illusion of Gaia is actually pretty affordable, at least as compared to the usual surcharge for SNES RPGs. It’s $21.50 for the loose cart, and $49.99 for the box and manual – eerily close to retail price when it came out.

– The other games in the series? Not so cheap. Soul Blazer is now $54.81 for the cart, and $137.50 for the box and manual. Terranigma never came out in the U.S., so the ones that’ll work with your SNES are just reproductions. The Japanese copy is trending at about $74.99.

– Terra Earth, a cool site devoted to the Soul Blazer and Gaia games, has a neat message board thread about the translation issues prevalent in this one.

-As expected, the new King Arthur movie was a flop in its first weekend, per Box Office Mojo.
