Hail to the king, baby! We delve into the history of Duke Nukem’s video game life.
Hail to the king, baby! Our latest episode chronicles the history of steroid-loving Duke Nukem, and the ups and downs of his video game life – from 1991’s MS DOS platformer Duke Nukem to the looooonnngg-awaited disappointment that was Duke Nukem Forever in 2011.
Includes a tribute to Bill Paxton, featuring a clip of him from video game film The Gamechangers.
Ho ho horror. Tackling the Christmas vs Halloween genre, from Silent Night Deadly Night to Jack Frost.
Ho ho HORROR. As we missed the deadline for our own Halloween special, we’ve combined it with Christmas for a collection of the best and worst of a very particular kind of horror film: the Christmas horror.
Morgan and Tom teach each other about: Silent Night Deadly Night, Jack Frost, Black Christmas and Treevenge – and discover that the Christmas horror genre is anything but festive. Garbage Day!
There was only one episode we could for instalment number 24, and it’s our second espionage ep in a row: JACK BAUER’S 24.
And as it’s been so long since our last episode (our bad), it’s a bumper edition as we trawl through all 9 seasons (plus a mini movie and the game) of Jack’s mental adventures, nukes, moles and haughty English politicians.
NOTE: This episode was recorded before Donald Trump’s election victory.
Morgan takes Tom back to the early 1990s and through some of his favourite Sega Mega Drive games, including Streets of Rage 2, Golden Axe and Sonic the Hedgehog. Tom also educates Morgan about the horrific Shaq Fu and how it may have influenced 50 Cent.
Beer choice: Innis & Gunn lager (reference – err, because there are some guns in Sega games)
Tom helps Morgan refresh his memory of the good old days of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, and try not to have our childhoods ruined by shoddy production, racist undertones and dodgy spandex suits. We also discuss the ‘classic’ movie, its many TV spinoffs and the future film.
Beer choice: Doom Bar (reference – Rita Repulsa’s impending doom. Yeah, we know.)
