'Remember The Game?' is a retro gaming podcast, hosted by comedian Adam Blank.
Each week, Adam and his guest get together and spend some time reminiscing about a video game from the good old days. No history lessons here, just two nerds remembering a game they played before the weight of adulthood crushed their spirits.
New episodes are posted every Wednesday! Search "Remember The Game" on your favourite podcast service, or just use one of these handy links:
Nintendo 64 North American Release Date - September 26, 1996
The NES Classic was a license to print money. At least, it should have been. But when Nintendo rolled out their mini console, they produced a ridiculously small number of units. Scalpers scooped up most of them, and Nintendo continued to send out obscenely small shipments periodically. People were left out in the cold, begging Nintendo to take their money. The supply might not have been there, but the demand was. People (that could get them), loved the NES Classic.
The SNES Classic followed. Nintendo produced a more respectable number of consoles this time around, and people ate them up. I don't know how much money Nintendo made per unit on these things, but they were certainly profitable. They sold out as fast as they were made available. And we live in a "monkey see, monkey do" world. Other companies, including Atari, Sega, and Sony (unfortunately) followed suit, to varying degrees of success. But none of these units sold like Nintendo's classic duo did, and people have been clamouring for what should be an obvious next step; the Nintendo 64 Classic.
But is that what we really want?
Rumours have been circulating for months that Nintendo's next mini console will be arriving any day now, and the internet is full of people posting their dream lineups for the N64 Classic. On the other hand, there's an argument to be made that these games haven't aged very well. There's also the issue of the gigantic controller. Does an N64 Classic make sense? My buddy Mark is back this week, and we set out to answer that question.
This is a little different than most of our episodes, but I really had fun working on it. I hope you like it too. Search for 'Remember The Game' on your favourite podcast service, on Youtube, or just check it out right here:
