  • Nostalgia Goggles at the movies: Mortal Kombat

    July 18th, 2017  |  1 hr 43 mins

    Mortal Kombat wasn't the first movie adapted from a video game but it's remembered as one of the few that wasn't a complete dumpster fire. There are some smoldering embers though.

    Remember when it was okay to use "shellshocked" as a cutesy euphemism for getting really hurt in combat? TMNT remembers.

  • Chrono Trigger

    June 27th, 2017  |  1 hr 56 mins
    snes, super nintendo

    Our first RPG, and largely regarded one of the greatest RPGs ever made. If you're going to play something for 20+ hours it should be that good.

  • Excitebike

    June 13th, 2017  |  1 hr 37 mins

    Chevrons mean go faster (sort of) and George starts a war with the purple riders.

    Lyons tries to share an all time favorite with George only to find out he hates exploration games. #TheMoreYouKnow

    "It's time for revenge!" "Let's attack aggressively!"

  • NBA Jam

    snes, super nintendo

    FOR TWO! FROM DOWNTOWN! BOOM SHAKALAKA! HE'S ON FIRE. Terrible shot.

  • Mega Man X

    April 4th, 2017  |  1 hr 41 mins

    Mega Man X, the peak of the Mega Man formula.

  • Mortal Kombat II

    March 14th, 2017  |  1 hr 12 mins
    snes, super nintendo

    You can't spell "Mortal Kombat II" without "Lyons and George both rage quit this game".

  • Gradius III

    George is too lazy to test the Konami code (it works) and Lyons recalls being terrible at bullethell games (he is.)

  • Super Mario Kart

    February 21st, 2017  |  1 hr 28 mins
    snes, super nintendo

    Lyons relives a fond childhood memory, and George realizes it was actually Mario Kart 64 he was thinking of.

  • Golden Axe

    February 7th, 2017  |  1 hr 14 mins

    George recommended Golden Axe and we then spend an hour regretting it. Not completely without charm, it's difficult to enjoy without Nostalgia Goggles strapped on tight.

  • Sonic 2

    January 24th, 2017  |  1 hr 22 mins

    Sonic 2 was Lyons' childhood favorite and he's frothing at the mouth to replay it. George is a bit more skeptical.

  • Super Mario World

    January 24th, 2017  |  1 hr 25 mins

    There's no getting around it: Super Mario World is every bit as amazing as you remember. But nothing is perfect, and we still found things to complain about.
