In this episode (sponsored by British American Tobacco) Rob and AC shine a spotlight on the SNES classic Super Mario Kart, discuss the EFF/ESA legal battle, ruminate on why Vladimir Putin is Number One Great Guy, explain why Flicky is annoying, explain why Fantasy Zone is even more annoying, and celebrate AC conquering The Legend of Zelda. Also we play another game of Simpsons Or Simcity! Game/Life Balance: the 17th most popular video-game themed podcast in Russia for some reason.

AC is a little hyper this week as he and Rob talk about the dreaded unlicensed NES game: “Caltron 6 in 1”. We talk about the latest Nintendo news and future console and Rob tries to get back at AC with the popular “Is it Canon?” quiz!

Since it’s our 5th (official) episode, we decided to try something a little different. In Stream of Nonsense, Rob and AC record their stream of consciousness. We talk about everything from different types of game difficulty, to why channel 10 used to play “Bird on a Wire” so damn much!
Funny this is, we aimed for wacky, and instead got serious, knowledgeable discussion. But don’t worry, if you’re not a fan we’ll be back to the old format next episode! Give it a listen, it’s better than 18th century scurvy!

Wooo! Awesome episode this week, our featured game is none other than Kirby’s Adventure for NES! We have some interesting news stories for you, catch up on Rob’s gaming and hear about the handheld collections AC has acquired for himself. And to top it off we revisit the classic quiz: Heavy Metal Band or Video Game. Only this time, it’s much harder for poor old AC.
So like the hordes of Zombies eating your brains, we ask you to join us. JOOOOIN US! It’s free!
