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.

Ep. 22 - Terranigma

The Spindash hosts continue their love affair with Quintet in this week's too-hot-for-America playthrough of Terranigma.
