    32 - Rayman

    32 - Rayman

    Use slick animation, vibrant colors, and a complete lack of limbs to defeat the evil Mr. Dark in Rayman! In this giant-spiky-fruit-sized episode, we learn the history of Ubisoft as well as Rayman's platform-hopping path to production. We then walk through the game, compare the different ports, find a Portuguese typo, and cover more previews and reviews than you can shake an Electoon at. But don't shake Electoons, kids, they're our friends.

    Also included is feedback from Clinton, Roberth, Bill Kendrick, Greg, JB, Weird and Retro, cubanismo, RollOut, DoctorClu, tripled79, Justin, Sabertooth, TrekMD, SuperRetro64, Arethius, and Brian in Albuquerque!

    31 - Syndicate

    31 - Syndicate

    Set your cybernetic sights on world domination in Syndicate! Get a handle on the controls, concoct an unofficial overlay, peruse reviews from around the world, and question the ESRB rating in this episode about Bullfrog's cyberpunk classic.
    Oh, yeah, and check out several previously-undisclosed cheat codes.
    Also included is feedback from RJ, the Lost Dragon, PFG 9000, tripled79, MightyFrog, cubanismo, Kyle, Louis, and Bobby Tribble! Woohoo!
    All that plus storytime involving out-of-context Atari, and nerds makin' noise in the computer lab.

    30 - Super Burnout

    30 - Super Burnout

    Blisteringly-fast arcade-style motorcycle racing hits the Atari Jaguar with Super Burnout. In this episode, we figure out if "super" really is better, Bishop wreaks pre-programmed havoc on a national anthem, we track down the real-life inspiration behind each of the game's courses, hunt for the optimal audio balance, and create crazy glitches with a cheat code.
    We're also packed with feedback from Randal, Björn, Lestat, Roberth, Olivier Nallet (really!), Rhett, Derek, Peter, atarilbc, Doctor Clu, RJ, Louis, TrekMD, Steve Clinton from London, and Kyle!
    Throughout the episode, check out snippets from the underrated soundtrack, including the entirety of Shen's Theme at the very end, following Storytime, which includes my COVID-19 update.

    29 - Theme Park

    29 - Theme Park

    The Advisor recommends you check out Theme Park! In this Ferris wheel-sized episode, we look at the histories of two storied UK video game companies, learn about the development of the Jaguar version straight from the source (whose name I hope I pronounced correctly), check out all the rides and attractions, and find out that M. Thatcher is actually a dude.  Act surprised at the unexpected musical number, and if you want, stick around for storytime at the end.
    Also included is feedback from Derek, Trevor, Randal, Chris, Gary, Mark, Zeus09998580, atarilbc, Patrick, TrekMD, and Adam!

    28 - Supercross 3D

    28 - Supercross 3D

    Feel the textures beneath your animated, dirt-chewing tires in Supercross 3D! Learn about how the tournament actually works (hint: don't read the manual), check out some of the hidden references in the list of competitor names, and learn what the heck a "nac nac" is in this dirty, dirty episode.
    Also included are a couple curious song similarities, storytime segments featuring carbonated beverages and open-source operating systems, plus feedback from Rhett, RD, Björn, Roberth, Liam, Atarilbc, Arethius, Hakuzo, and JagMod! One of those may or may not correct a recurring mistake on my part.

    27 - Flashback - The Quest for Identity

    Find out who you really are and then foil the alien conspiracy in Flashback: The Quest for Identity. Learn about the companies involved in bringing this game to the Jaguar, what it took to make the cutscenes, and how to recover your teleport receiver with one weird trick.
    Along the way, we uncover a previously-unknown cheat code, dig into all the various ports and their differences, and argue about whether the Titan in this game is a planet or a moon.
    Also included is feedback, lots of feedback, from Bryce, Andrew, Derek, Hugh, TrekMD, Ben, Mike, Arethius, Rhett, and Hugues! Plus storytime.
