TIMESTAMPS

  • 0:00 – Intro, which features the wonderfully cheesy trailer from the seventh movie, which the game is based on. You can see it on YouTube here!
  • 37:30 – After cleanin’ the pee out of your pants, you need a pick-me-up from such a scary game. So we have… The Cheer-Up Corner, a new segment!
  • 40:30 – Todd has reasons why Friday the 13th is… The Most Best Game of All-Time.
  • 43:45 – Emails! Much like Dave Letterman, we also get stacks and stacks of letters.
  • 55:00 – We help some people, in, ASK the Sweet Boys.
  • 1:00:00 – Snifferoo. GET HYPED! We’re playing one of the all-time horror and gamin’ claysics.

SHOW NOTES

– According to Price Charting, this is a cheap game somewhat. It’s $10 for the loose cart, and $48 for the box and manual included. It’s awful though, so don’t buy it.

  • 0:00 – Intro, which features a Blooperoonie and one of the dummies’ better PSAs.
  • 27:00 – Huell has some reasons why the Game Boy version is… The Most Worst Game of All-Time.
  • 32:00 – Todd has some reasons why the SNES version is… The Most Best Game of All-Time.
  • 37:00 – Voicemails! Another former president calls in.

  • 51:00 – As always, we help some people with Todd’s help, in Ask The Sweet Boys.
  • 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.

TIMESTAMPS

  • 0:00 – Intro, which features one of the nifty commercials for the movie, which is seriously much, much better than the game.
  • 41:30 – Emails! We learn more about Ole Scooty, and there is a check-in from everyone’s favorite Pokemon lover.
  • 56:00 – It’s the hottest new feature on this show! Ask The Sweet Boys.
  • 1:03:00 – Snifferoo. Thank god, we’re playing a GOOD game next week… For reals.

SHOW NOTES

– According to Price Charting, the various Bill & Ted games are cheaply priced. The cart costs about $9, and the box and manual go for $22.99. However, it’s a horrible game, so do something more effective with your cash, like burning it with fire.

– According to Entertainment Weekly and other sites, Bill & Ted 3 is still on-track to be made.
