Baconsale Episode 17: Your Podcast is in Another Castle

We decided to take a break from our usual topics of movies and television to discuss something truly important: politics. Ha! Just kidding! We’re going to talk about video games — specifically, the pre-PlayStation era. This episode is dedicated to the games we love, the games we hate and the games our parents wouldn’t let us buy, so we’d have to go over to our friend’s house to play them. Be sure to listen because you’ll hear a strange revelation about Joel’s secret past!

Oh, and if you press up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, B, A on your keyboard at the start of this episode, you’ll unlock the ability to listen to it 30 times!

    The game that got me into the gaming would have to be Star Fox 64

    Screw you Kenny! Zelda is awesome despite the redundancy!
    Also, turn based play sucks. 🙂
    Great episode! Your movie based podcasts are fantastic but this new venture was equally as delightful. I think I would like more of these spin offs in the future.

    Joel, I’m a little sad that you hate Final Fantasy, especially as the big movie guy that you are. RPG’s were all about the story, like movies. To me, they always felt like the bridge between books and movies that you got to be immersed into and actually affect the outcome. They’re amazing! My favorite genre of games honestly.


    • Joel · July 31, 2015

      I never said I disliked all RPGs. I just don’t like turn-based fighting.


      • Crisagrm · August 1, 2015

        True, you didn’t. But you’re still missing out on some great stuff.

    Also, Dr. Chaos for NES was the game that got me into gaming. I hate and love that game!


    • Joel · July 31, 2015

      I’ve never heard of that one. I’ll have to look it up.


      • Crisagrm · August 1, 2015

        It’s a sweet game, you should!

    Did you ever play Toejam and Earl? I never played Boogerman, but I think Toejam and Earl is along those lines. I played it at my cousin’s house.

    I think the most overrated accessory was the Nintendo Super Scope. I remember getting it for my birthday and all it really was was a glorified Duck Hunt gun.

    Good podcast, but I haven’t heard of many of the games and I was never a huge gamer. I think that as soon as my little brother got better than me, I just gave up and let video games be his thing.

    My friend and I spent hours making cartoons on Mario Paint of people getting blown up or run over by tanks.
