Yeah, I finally got this in the bag. First thing’s first, listen to the new episode here:

It’s amazing how low key in general this is for a podcast that spends at least twenty minutes talking about a dude who sells porn doujins of his own professional work.

But lets get to voting, shall we? Our contestetants this time around are:

In 1999, a terrorist organization known only as DAGGER has occupied the city of New York where they have hacked into military defenses world-wide, established their own military command and gained access to nuclear missile silos. They hold the world hostage in this position and promise to cancel their threats of destroying the Earth only until the world’s governments relinquish their power to DAGGER.
A Special Forces Air Unit is called in to attack DAGGER and cripple their strongest defenses and headquarters in New York. Until then, the city remains silent.

The game’s story is about a king trying to get his throne back that has been taken by an evil wizard. At the beginning of the game the player chooses between the King’s son, Brodan, or the King’s daughter, Shardan. This does not change the gameplay. The character’s design are heavily inspired by Golden Axe and the works of Robert E. Howard. The prince and princess will travel all over their kingdom from the city gates to zombie graveyards in their quest to take their kingdom back.

Which one do you want to see us play? Head over to twitter and vote here:

hmmmm this is much more interesting to me than the SNES podcast (sorry, I’m an ic poster c. 2004 forever and ever)

how do I guest on one of these


#3

I drool at every new draft of choices for Book of Megadrive.


#4

Thank Libre Office’s spreadsheet RNG for the surprisingly tasty choices.


#5

VOTE SODAN


#6

Sad that Monster World is gonna win on name recognition alone.


#7

I don’t necessarily mind if MWIV wins because I’ve already done my homework since the recording

but when there is an option where others can suffer, it must be taken


#8

but that’s the problem! everyone knows monster world iv!


#9

I voted for suffering


#10

It’s too early in the podcast to vote for suffering.

5 to 10 episodes from now, however… :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:


#11

I’ve not listened to the final product because then I would have to listen to my own voice but I’ve made it clear that if I win choice, we are heading full steam into Suffer County


#12

the pc-fx game that’s like resident evil is team innocent. someone was working on a translation patch for it years ago, but it never came out as far as i can tell.


#13

I keep wanting to have something insightful to say in response to having listened but it’s just going to end up with me feeling bad about never commenting at all so: I listened and liked this! I sort of thought Growlanser was actually Langrisser before this but now I know better and hope that remake one day get localized for the Switch.


#14

I don’t have twitter, can someone vote Sodan on my behalf?


#15

It’s over already sadly! I’ll rig the vote with my ADs next time.


#16

That would be great, thanks


#17

it’s funny you say this because if you poke around, the team that did Langrisser (at least, the latter ones) split off and then got absorbed by Atlus where they made Growlanser


#18

Yeah, I think I cut out a lot of the growlancer discussion from the end because I was worried it was too much ‘Tiger asks everyone to sell them on growlancer’ and I wasn’t sure that made for good podcast material.

Conversely, @Tulpa saying ‘Ovary Loaded’ was fucking hilarious to me, which is why I left that part of the convo in.


#19

well, I’m excited to record the next episode and hear how everyone gave up at the Ice Pyramid
