In this episode Greg and George look at one of the only tank games on the SNES, Super Battletank!  Also known by it's full title of Gary Kitchen's Super Battletank: War In The Gulf, industry legend Gary Kitchen oversaw the design and development of this simulation/action game where you control a M1A1 tank in the Middle East during the 1991 Gulf War.  We talk about the history and influence that Gary Kitchen has had over the years, discuss the tank and the compromises for playing vs realsim the game creators made, how the game plays, and if it holds up today.  Any comments, feedback, questions, etc. can be left on our FB page or directed to thesnespodcast@yahoo.com and as always thanks for your support!

In this episode Greg and George look at another Japanese only game -- Front Mission: Gun Hazard!  The second game in the Front Mission franchise, this side scrolling action/RPG game is considered a spin off from the 'mainstream' Front Mission games.  Translated fully into English with a patch -- as it's still never been released in the west -- this really fun game has a deep storyline and branching choices, furious gameplay, great graphics, and wonderful music from the same duo who did the music for Chrono Trigger.  Hear us talk about this hidden gem and what we really enjoyed about it!  Any questions, comments, feedback, etc. can be left on our FB page or via e-mail to thesnespodcast@yahoo.com and as always thanks for your support!

In this episode Greg and George look at the SNES port of a Midway arcade game -- Total Carnage!  The spiritual sequel to Smash TV, this game features the same 1 or 2 player overhead 'shoot everything up' twin stick gameplay that Smash TV had with a few extra things.  How is the game itself and it's conversion to the SNES?  We discuss that and more in this episode!  Any questions, comments, feedback, etc. can be left on our FB page or via e-mail to thesnespodcast@yahoo.com and as always thanks for your support!

In this episode Greg and George look at the SNES port of a game belonging to the most famous Computer RPG of all time -- Ultima VI: The False Prophet!  One of the most talked about and successful games in the long running Ultima franchise, many of the games got ported to consoles.  We examine the differences between the original PC version and the SNES port, how the game plays on a controller vs a mouse and keyboard, and if it holds up today.  Any questions, comments, suggestions, etc. can be left on our FB page or e-mailed to the snespodcast@yahoo.com and as always thanks for your support!

In this episode Greg and George look at one of the strange hybrid games that graced the SNES -- Mega Man Soccer!  What feels like a side project from Capcom (and the first Mega Man game on the SNES) is an interesting soccer game with Mega Man characters, graphics, music, and style.  How does the game play and is it fun?  We debate that in this episode!  For any questions, comments, feedback, etc. please visit our FB page or send an e-mail to thesnespodcast@yahoo.com and as always thanks for your support!

In this episode of the SNES Podcast, Greg and George again highlight their differences in ages as they discuss a game based off a TV show that George watched as a kid -- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!  This beat em up/platformer allows you to pick any of the hero's from said show and has decent graphics and good music to back it up.  So how does the game play and does it hold up today?  Tune in to find out!  Any questions, comments, suggestions, etc. can be left on our FB book or e-mailed to the snespodcast@yahoo.com and as always thanks for your support!

In this episode Greg and George are again joined by special guest host Nick to share his vast pinball topic as we discuss the sequel to Pinball Dreams, Pinball Fantasies!  The original game was made for the Amiga and ported to a wide range of systems including the SNES.  We discuss the four new tables in this pinball game, how they play, and the nuts and bolts of the game.  For any questions, comments, etc. please leave a message on our FB page or send a e-mail to thesnespodcast@yahoo.com and thanks as always for your support!

In this first episode of 2018, George and Greg look at another fighting game on the SNES, Rival Turf!  Best known for it's really bad box art, this game sought to cash in on the SF 2 craze of the early 90's and did much better in Japan, where it had two official sequels.  How did the game do in the States and how does it play?  We discuss this and more in this episode!  Any questions, comments, feedback, etc. can be left on our FB page or e-mailed to the snespodcast@yahoo.com and as always thanks for your support!
