    This is a pretty good game. What I like about this game is that it’s more straightforward than the original. I didn’t finish it, because I got stuck on some dragon creature (and the Game Boy wasn’t mine). But my, what a fun ride!

    You’re damn right keeping the consistency to have a video every monday. It’s not called “James and Mike Mondays….Maybe” lol. Always look forward to Mondays.

    Aweeeesome. My childhood game being played by my favorite internet nerds!

    But SM has fog-of-war on the map and the map station doesn’t give secret areas. Also, you realy don’t have to do those big detour with the spiderball :S. Spiderball is actually awesome.. You just need some getting use to.

    Played the hell out of this game as a kid. Secret glitch worlds gave it an interesting bit of replay value.

    Well this came out of nowhere . They should’ve remade this …. for the SNES that is.

      There is a fan-made remake, which looks pretty descent. But we can only play it on PC.

      • February 23, 2016 at 1:54 pm

        “Pc? What is that, an app?” lol….. I always thought pc gaming was the most versatile and best ‘console’ to play games.

    What are they referencing at around the 14:16 mark? With classic Nintendo.

    Heh the real question is will James get as much unnecessary crap as Mike did for calling it “grinding” “farming” on his live stream.

    I can’t wait to see if Samus peels off that itchy space suit at the end. Yeah baby!!

    Hey, after you guys do part 2 of this review, I wonder what game you’re gonna review next? I hope it’s Pokemon Red and Blue versions since the Pokemon franchise is turning 20 this Saturday! (:

    This game is 25 years old and I still play it maybe once a month or more,,,, not many of today’s game can get me to play them once a year… I did have to replace the battery with a brand new one ,, which only cost me 2 dollars. I bought this game brand new from Children’s Palace for something like 35 dollars and tax ,,, Back when my only source of income was digging in the coushions of every bodies couches

    12:07 What keeps you regular? Fiber. That is actually golden advice. Trust me. If you find you are feeling angry or down often, you should try to have Metamucil or other fiber supplement twice per day, and also drink more water and drink it more often, not all in one gulp. Also, try to sleep and rise earlier. It really works. Trust me. I am talking from experience.

      You can also try taking chelated magnesium and a probiotic.

      Anyway… if they’re looking for a game that intentionally has things that aggravate people, “I wanna be the guy” is a great one to play.

    I always look forward to J+M Mondays – as well as all your other videos! Also brightens my day, all my friends are married and scattered so I don’t see them that often, your videos give me that refreshing taste of hanging with buddies once in a while! Not to mention all the nostalgia from these games I played growing up and look at new games as well. Thanks for all your hard work guys!

    You guys have a Framemeister. You should be hooking that shit up in RGB and using my custom profiles!

      What like sitting down on the couch? Inserting the game cartridge?

  • February 23, 2016 at 4:35 am

    Ahhh I need to see the next episode!!!

  • February 23, 2016 at 10:56 am

    Nice video, when James mentioned podcasts in the video I immediately remembered the audio slaughter podcast he used to make. What happened to it? Would love more episodes of that :p

  • February 23, 2016 at 5:24 pm

    Hey James and Mike, I think you guys would enjoy revisiting a bunch of these PS1 games. Holy crap, look at Animorphs: Shattered Reality… more like Shittered Reality @ 6:13.

    Awesome game. SR388 is my favorite song from any game, followed closely by Zeros theme from X3. James you should do a top 10 for game music if you didn’t already.

    In Brazil, Parmigiana is a popular restaurant dish, which was brought over by Italian immigrants (Brazil having the largest population of such immigrants in the world). There are three kinds of Parmigiana in Brazil: Filé de frango a Parmigiana (Chicken fillet Parmigiana), Berinjela a Parmigiana (Eggyplant Parmigiana) and Meat Parmigiana.Three types of beef are used to make meat Parmigiana: two prime cuts, yielding, respectively, Filé Mignon à Parmigiana and Contra-filé à Parmigiana, while the third type, yielding Bife à Parmigiana is simply cheap beef of an unspecified cut. In Brazil, Parmigiana dishes are usually served with either white rice and fried potatoes or with pasta in a tomato sauce.

    Keep these coming, Mr. Rolfe. Great stuff!! You probably already know, but I’ll tell you anyway. If you happen to make your way to New York City in the near future, a newly renovated Nintendo World in Rockefeller Center reopened. A friend of mine went to the grand opening and said it was awesome. Would love hear what you and/or Mike think.
