That was very enjoyable. I'm surprised how much of this game I remember despite only playing it once back when it came out.

I make a point of watching The Dark Tournament Saga at least once a year. It's damn good!

Shout out for the One Piece CG hair. Great Stream Jan.

Man for once in a while I look back on consoles i missed on, either because i lacked the funds or wasn't old enough for my parents to pick it up. So when i see games like these it makes me sad, this is totally my Jam, goofy platform, filled with gags and "anime".

Thanks for showing us this @benpack

Burger King's Hershey pies are maybe the best thing Burger King sells. Also I'm sad I already ate lunch now.

Shocked to find out that Brad doesn't know what a doughnut is. That's basic life information.

I played this game as a kid, as a rental with no controller pak, so I was never able to save the game at all - I had to keep the console on from the moment I began the game. I somehow completed the game within the weekly rental period (maybe it was 2 weeks, we could have re-rented?), but I distinctly remember that after finishing the game, I was told there was an epilogue, or some sort of extra content, but I had to reset and reload my nonexistant savegame in order to access it. I was super disappointed then, and I honestly still am.

It didn't seem to come up here, but does anyone know what I'm talking about? Or have I just been making shit up in my head for 20 years?

Was it just hinting at extra content I could have accessed before the final boss? I know somebody recommended the dudes save up a bunch of money for the final dungeon, and in this video there was mention of spending it on something fun in the final shops, but it ultimately didn't happen.

Anyway this game has great music and is super weird and I love it.

I'll defend Dexter season 5, but season 6 onward is terrible.

Oh! I really thought Ben was going to go into the song the McElroys use as the theme for MBMBAM at 9:35 before Jeff jumped in. I was disappointed.

(I'd like to thank John Roderick and the Long Winters for the use of our theme song It's a Departure from the album Putting the Days to Bed)

Genuinely shocked that Brad hasn't beaten Super Mario Bros. … I mean, what? That Jeff didn't immediately slap him is almost as surprising.

Frasier is mostly very good, and IASIP isn't a sitcom.

Just FYI.

I've got a bunch of the latest MBMBAM's piling up on my sub feed and for some reason just haven't been in the mood to listen to them.. Can't get enough of Judge John Hodgman at the moment. It used to be the other way around. Man I'm getting old.

Oh man. Breaking Brad: Super Mario Brothers would be so amazing! The games are absolute classics so they would be a great addition for a feature on the site! They're also the perfect difficulty for a This is the Run. West could use a TitR/BreakingBrad type feature again. My favorite features are ones where I can cheer someone on and BEast is so good at those, whereas there's not as many like that on the West.

@conductus: If you get all the fortune cat dolls it unlocks an Impact boss rush mode in the main options menu. No new content sadly!

I feel like it's worth noting that Ichiro Mizuki, who sings the amazing "I Am Impact!", is an absolute legend of anime songs. He's done literally hundreds going all the way back the 70s, and a lot of them super robots.

Such as:

@rurounigeo: If I counted right, it was from Persona 4. Jeff having Chie hair was a nice touch.

5 months late on this but the reason the ending credits theme is familiar to Ben is that the chorus is a knock-off of the theme of Brazil.
