David and Robert return and are joined by The Koalition’s Jake James Lugo to chat about the N64’s 20th anniversary, Ecco the Dolphin II, the return of Crash Bandicoot, and Sonic dissing Mighty No. 9!
Too slow! Listen to this podcast fast before Sonic gets the better of us all. We welcome special guest Jake James Lugo of The Koalition who joins our celebration of the N64’s 20th anniversary. What were our favorite games and memories? Did the N64 have the best lineup of wrestling titles? Which was the better first person shooter – GoldenEye 007, Perfect Dark, or… Turok: Dinosaur Hunter? Sound off to us on your thoughts!
Our main topics of discussion include the emergence of the incomplete Ecco the Dolphin II: Sentinels of the Universe for Dreamcast. Learn why we may have missed out on one of the best entries in this franchise. We also get into the return of Crash Bandicoot from Sony’s press conference and what it could potentially mean for 3D mascot platformers in the future. The show closes with the topic that we absolutely could not avoid which was the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account throwing some “mad shade, yo” right in Mighty No. 9‘s face. Fair or foul? Let us know!
Of course there’s also the Stage of History which includes the unique food-based arcade game BurgerTime, Don Bluth’s debut in gaming Dragon’s Lair, and Mario’s big splash into 3D Super Mario 64!
