Our Top 25 N64 Games

Our Top 25 N64 Games

December 31, 2020

Laugh at us once more as we come up with a "definitive" console Top 25 using strange algorithms based on whoever's hosting the episode. This week it's Dylan's turn to host the N64 top 25 as he's barely played 20 N64 games (better leave it to the experts eh?) And don't worry, you're not going mad, this episode was filmed after Thanksgiving and was postponed for a whole load of reasons.

December 24, 2020

Let's not beat about the bush, this is now our 200th episode extravaganza as the drunk mailbox episode was a complete write-off for several reasons. Will it ever see the light of day? Possibly. Might be something to tease to our future Patreon backers, hint hint. Just kidding, we're way off doing a Patreon!

Adrian has come up with many gaming-related questions to pose to the boys (the rounds in which definitely do not infringe any copyright laws...).

Rob and James versus Keith and Kev, who will be crowned kings of our "ef off 2020" quiz? Listen to find out!

Ex-SEGA supremo (and, amazingly, AA fan) Michael Latham kindly joined us to join in the fun and tell us more than a few amazing stories from the company's golden era. He also sends a volley back at Mac Senour for some comments he made in a recent interview. Let the SEGA fest commence!
