    The SNES Podcast #180 -- Madden NFL 94

    The SNES Podcast #180 -- Madden NFL 94

    In this episode of the SNES Podcast, Greg and Joe pay tribute to the great John Madden, legendary football coach, commentator, and inspiration behind one of the most successful video game franchises in history.  Millions of people learned how to watch and play football thanks to his efforts, so we focus on one of several Madden games to come out for the SNES.  While we touch on a bunch of them, we focus on Madden 94 due to several major new features it brought to the table.  We discuss those features, the history of the franchise, and what's it's like to play a 1993 sports game in 2022.

    The SNES Podcatst #177 -- Pocky and Rocky

    The SNES Podcatst #177 -- Pocky and Rocky

    In this episode of the SNES Podcast, Greg and Joe were joined by guest Alex to talk about one of his favorite shooters on the SNES -- Pocky and Rocky! This obscure Nastume game licensed from Taito allows you to play the role of either shrine maiden Pocky or squirrel Rocky as you blast through six stages a la Commando or Ikari Warriors to stop a evil force. This totally over the top game full of Japanese charm is very similar to Legend of the Mystical Ninja in it's Japan-ese look and feel. Just be prepared to play via emulation if you'd like to play this interesting game!
    Please be aware that Alex sadly lost his audio file after recording the podcast so you will only hear Joe and I speak about the game. I have invited Alex to submit a audio submission and if he does so at a future date then we will include it in a podcast. However, this game was Alex's pick and so we want to thank him very much for introducing us to yet another little known SNES game.

    In this episode Greg and Joe are looking at the second Castlevania game on the SNES -- Dracula X! A 're-imagining' of Rondo of Blood, which came out two years earlier for the PC-Engine in Japan only, this game plays more akin to the original NES Castlevania games then Super Castlevania IV. We discuss the differences between the two games, how it plays, and if it's worth playing today.
