Nintendo Vs. System – Episode 067
It’s our unrequited love letter to one of the best arcade cabinets ever made in an episode that doesn’t focus just on a game or a series, but an entire system – the Nintendo Vs. System.
How did Nintendo find success in the worst possible time to sell video games? Why did American audiences have to pay a quarter for the first taste of the Famicom? How did stupid sexy Flanders blaze a trail for Goldeneye, Killer Instinct, and Battletoads? What are our top three Nintendo Vs. games and what are yours?
We attempt to set the Guinness Book World Record for the number of times “PPU” is said in a podcast, finally get to shoot the dog in Duck Hunt, describe why hoarding is a good thing, and talk about 37 Vs. games… in a row.
