Ep. 34 - Diablo

To celebrate the spookiest month of the year, the Spindash hosts were planning on playing Clock Tower...but then Blizzard decided to drop Diablo II: Resurrected, sending everyone into a mouse clicking frenzy. That's okay though, Spooky Month will continue. This week on Spindash, we descend all 16 levels to confront the Lord of Terror himself. Join us for Diablo.

Ep. 33 - Ninja Gaiden

To our faithful listeners: give up on MGS, it is never happening. We're stringing you along and it's just not healthy...Don't let that get you down though, this week the Spindash hosts tackle one of Matt's childhood favorites, Ninja Gaiden for the NES (that's Ninja GUY-DEN for those in the back). Along the way, John attempts to feign modesty over a pickup bumper crop, the highlight of his year. Nick's internet then proceeds to die more frequently than we did playing this game - it's not Spindash if it isn't plagued with technical difficulties.

Metal Gear Solid eludes the Spindash hosts yet again (is anyone really surprised at this point?). To keep things moving, Nick takes charge and leads John and Matt through one of his childhood favorites, QuackShot Starring Donald Duck. Along the way, the Irish are caught in his crosshairs. When will Nick stop offending Europeans? When Donald Duck learns to control his temper, that's when...

It's time to step away from that Happy Box, drop some shrooms, and dive into a frothy pool of sewage. It's time for the Spindash hosts tackle the second half of Mother 3. Join us for chapters 5 through 8 (yes, we will spoil the ending, but this game came out in 2006, give us a break).

No stranger to rejection, John is stood up by potential guest host Terry Crews in this week's look at Mother 3 for the Game Boy Advance. Along the way, Nick makes a strong case for why Fassad is the hero of the game as he loves both Happy Boxes and money (that said, Nick can't be bothered to click through the story). An adventure this long (and this strange) can only be handled in two parts. Join us for chapters 1 through 4.

Ep. 26 - Super Metroid

The Spindash hosts take a painful stroll through Lower Norfair (without the Varia suit equipped) in this week's game, Super Metroid. Like the game itself, the hosts are forced to backtrack and reexplore things numerous times as screaming children and persistent mic issues arise like the giant Kraid from a pit of spikes. Luckily the reserve tanks were full, and with some clever editing and help from an organic super-computer, the show goes on.

With a freshly jumped battery (thanks AAA), the Spindash hosts lift off aboard the Death Egg. Instead of breaking open TVs for power-ups, Super Nick joins the elite class of CRT owners after rescuing one from the dump. The hosts then channel their inner Robotnik and discuss their ability to conquer various wild animals - John is overconfident in his abilities. Matt unleashes his hatred toward a certain two-tailed fox named Miles. Things get really dark when when the hosts conteplate drowning.
