This stupid game. If you grew up in the NES era, chances are you had at LEAST one game based on a big IP that you played over and over, even though it kinda sucked. Maybe you didn't realize it sucked, but now you know the truth. For my brother and I, Dick Tracy was one of those games.

We'd rent it, and spend 2 days interrogating the wrong the people or dying on the first level, and then we'd go back to it again the next time. And the next time...

Playing it now as an adult, I actually appreciate what it was trying to do. I don't know if I'd say it's "good", but I wouldn't call it "bad", either. Long-time listener Heggowaffle owned this one growing up, played it like crazy, and has enough nostalgia for it that he sponsored this episode and came by to tell me what it was like growing up chasing Prune Face (or whatever that guy's name was).

And the my brother Josh give some a call to talk about driving around that stupid city, shooting rooftop snipers, looking for clues, and dying at the hands of stupid rats. Stupid Dick Tracy.

And before we trace some dicks, I slap together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!

This week, we get into the hypothetical discussion of what gaming would look like today if Nintendo and Sony had worked together in the 90's. I share some of my thoughts on the Steam Deck. And what console did I miss out on in its prime, that I wish I could go back and play more of?

Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 crappy NES-movie games: Friday the 13th, Jaws, and Back to the Future.
