It's another 'Patreon Poll' edition of the show this week. Every month, you hot dogs get to pick a game I haven't played that you want to hear us cover on the podcast, and I play through it and then ramble about it into a microphone for an hour.
And this time, we're talking about the weirdo of the Zelda family - Zelda II: The Adventure of Link for the NES. Nintendo struck gold with the first Zelda game, and so they decided to change EVERYTHING while developing it's highly anticipated sequel. Was it the right call? Gamers debate that to this very day.
Former RTG Hall of Famer Mark McCue returns to the show this week, fresh off playing this bad boy for the first time himself. Did we like it? Love it? Hate it? Maybe a little bit of all of those and just spent a hour trying to decide whether or not this game is good? Listen and find out!
And before we try to make up our minds about Zelda II, it's another edition of the 'Remember The Game Infamous Intro'!
This time around, we talk about Mario Golf: Super Rush, and the idea that maybe Nintendo is getting a little complacent. We look at the idea of indie gaming being in trouble, as the big boys in video games continue to buy gaming studios like a game collector at a flea market. And a few of you just wrote in with Simpsons quotes, and I read them because I'm a sucker for that shit.
AND, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', featuring the Gamecube titles Super Mario Strikers, Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, and Mario Power Tennis!
