Episode 12: Pacman/SMB

AA - Arcade-y Games

Spin little monkeys spin! On this episode we keep the arcade train rolling with two arcade classics turned console games, Pacman World and Super Monkey Ball. Two games that helped define an era of gaming in the early 2000s. Neil and Mike try and remember the Pac-Man Ghosts' names (Pinky?), learn that Don Bluth was in line to make a sequel to Pac-Man World 2, and find out that surgeons use Super Monkey Ball 2 to practice surgeries (this is a real thing!). Mike talks about his disdain for Super Monkey Ball Adventure while Neil reads the back of its case. Skip to 60:23 to hear it!
