It’s also been re-released on Steam and the PS4, and usually costs between $5 and $15, depending on sales and what not. That version adds some playability functions, like fast forwarding and God mode.

– The Final Fantasy VII remake is still progressing at Square. You can read more about it on Wikipedia. No release date has been set, but as mentioned on the show, it’s supposed to be a bit more action-oriented than the original game, kind of more in line with current Square offerings.

– Steve’s podcast pick was Achievement Oriented from The Ringer. You can find the webpage for the show here. He particularly recommends the episode “Making Mo-cap Magic,” which features a funny chat with two actresses.

– Fan of the Show Kyle hosts Vaguely Entertaining, which you can find here!

NFL Blitz‘s announcer is absolutely incredible. You can listen to a full sound clip compilation here, and it’s worth it, even if its 30-plus minutes. Said announcer is Tim Kitzrow, and as mentioned on the show, Vice Sports had a good article with him about how he only got a couple hundred bucks for his original work.

– Vice Sports also has a neat article about how the hell the game got made with the approval of the NFL.

– There is a surprising amount of Shaq Fu talk in this episode, because that game still hasn’t come out. (In case that FB page changes: As of May 2017, there isn’t an official release, for a game that was originally supposed to come out sometime in 2015.) We first mentioned the sequel during our show on Shaq Fu, which amazingly was our ninth episode ever back in June 2015.

– We mention the Road Rash spiritual successor, Road Redemption, a tiny bit on the show. While it has also had issues getting released – it is still in pre-release on Steam – at least it is getting very positive reviews.

– Scouring the Internet, there aren’t even any rumors of the franchise being restarted. The game is referenced very, very briefly in Super Smash Brothers Brawl, but otherwise has not been re-purposed by Nintendo.

Night Trap is probably the most popular Sega CD game, beaten out by maybe only Sonic CD, and it still costs $24.99 for just the disc, and $66 for the box and manual included. Pretty much any decent Sega CD game is in the $30 to $300 range.

– We mention a Night Trap documentary several times on the show, and it’s this wonderful one here on YouTube.

– The Night Trap re-release will be available on the online stores for the PS4 and Steam. Unfortunately, the physical copies on Limited Run Games have already sold out, but you should bookmark them anyway because they have some neat stuff from time to time.

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.
