This updated Famicom game by Namco has you doing F-1 Racing around a large number of tracks and options, and is surprisingly robust for a game of it's time period.

In this episode Greg and Joe discuss the last Capcom developed and punished game with the Disney license -- Goof Troop! Based on the Disney cartoon of the same name (not really, but we get into that!) this game has you playing either as Goofy or his son Max in a action/puzzle game as you try to solve puzzles and beat bad guys to rescue your friends from pirates. In many ways this game plays like a mix of Zelda and Startropics, and the game really shines in two player mode as both of you work together! We discuss the game in detail and how it ties into the show and how it holds up today.

In this episode Greg and Joe look at the prequel of a RPG we already covered -- Lufia 2! I say 'prequel' cause instead of this being a sequel like most games this actually goes back in the past and has you play people and events alluded to in the first game. This plays very much like Lufia but with some key differences, and we explain and explore these differences and how it holds up today.

In this episode of the SNES Podcast, Greg and Joe pay tribute to the great John Madden, legendary football coach, commentator, and inspiration behind one of the most successful video game franchises in history.  Millions of people learned how to watch and play football thanks to his efforts, so we focus on one of several Madden games to come out for the SNES.  While we touch on a bunch of them, we focus on Madden 94 due to several major new features it brought to the table.  We discuss those features, the history of the franchise, and what's it's like to play a 1993 sports game in 2022.
