Duncecast With Samurai Banana: Battletoads


Good buddies Mike (aka Duncecap) and Tim (aka Samurai Banana) inaugurate their hip-hop n' video games podcast with some friendly chit-chat about their history and origins as gamers.

Topics discussed in this episode include:

  • Rage-quitting games (Dark Souls, Gran Turismo, The Lion King)
  • Mike and Tim’s first consoles—because you never forget your first
  • The magic of video game shopping at Toys-R-Us back in the day
  • Virtual reality as a time travel workaround
  • Why Nintendo is “kinda b.s.”
  • Thoughts on “art games” (Death Stranding, Journey, Proteus)
  • Commiserating over game-breaking glitches (Battletoads, Grim Fandango)

+ Bonus points if you catch the subtle homage(s) to 'I Think You Should Leave'
