Do you like cute lil 8 bit chipmonks flinging each other around at Hunky Birds, angry cats, and highly unsafe machinery? We do too! We’re playing Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers for the NES. A beloved 2 player platforming masterpiece, CNDRR is yet one in a number of charming and brilliant Capcom Licensed titles.

Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers is a platform game featuring single and 2-player cooperative modes, allowing players to choose which levels to access via a map of various locations throughout the city, in a similar format to other Capcom games such as Bionic Commando. Each individual stage is set up as a side-scrolling action game where Chip and Dale can walk, jump, duck, and pick up objects such as acorns, crates, barrels, and balls to throw at enemies and bosses. Each character can withstand only three direct hits before they lose a life, and there are no passwords. In two-player mode, Controller 1 is Chip, Controller 2 is Dale. -wiki

On episode 105, we have Adventure Island for the NES! Adventure Island is a side-scrolling platform game produced by Hudson Soft that was first released in Japan for the Famicom and MSX on September 12, 1986. It was later released in North America for the Nintendo Entertainment System on September 1988 and in the PAL region in 1992 under the title of Adventure Island Classic. (Thank you, Wikipedia)

It’s also deceptively difficult, and by deceptive, I mean that as cute as the shirtless, pot bellied protagonist looks, you will get your ass handed to you by snakes, frogs, campfires, and plethora of typically benign entities. Lot’s of shouting was had.

Vanessa Robinson (of the bands Cassandra and CIVC) was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule to become an official Lord of the Game and help me beat the f***ng frogs in Stage 2.

Topics covered: Grunge music, f***ing frogs, and camping.

In episode 104, the Lordz take on a very *special* edition of the much loved beat-em-up #banger, Double Dragon. The Master System version!! You Euros will know what we’re talkin’ bout.

Topics covered in this podcast include: Billy Joel, David Bowie, punk rockers are scum of the earth, and an important strategy that works some of the time for defeating this brief game.

Will teaming up with guest, Andrew Cox (Sacramento’s regional Master System Champion / Historian) be enough to defeat those sinister crust punks who punched your girl in the gut and slung her over their shoulder like total basic bros??

It’s the Lordz we’re talking about here, so probably…
