Did you like the third game? Let your fellow listeners know in TalkBack! Think you've got a better choice? Then send it my way and your request might be on the next episode of Radio Trivia: Podcast Edition!  Heck, throw in a question and specific songs if you want.  Just remember, it has to be a game found on a Nintendo system in North America (unless we say otherwise)!

Wow, I never would have gotten any of those since I never played any of them.

Who the heck requested the third game?

I got the first game half right. I got the fourth game, too. It has such good music, and I still have to beat it. I'm stuck at that green multi-part boss in the room with the changing water level that shoots sperm at you.

I almost got thrown off by the second and third songs, I was surprised by how different the WiiWare version sounds.

Who else?  ;)

3.Holy unfitting music Batman! I read about this game in Nintendo Power. I think it also came up as a nominee for "worst game of the year" or something in the NP awards. It was so crazy I had to request it. I actually didn't recognize the game at all until you named it, even though you mentioned my name. Everyone should do themselves a favor and YouTube some video of the game.

Come to think of it, I've had a lot of unusual requests on the show: (mega spoilers)

-Pokemon Pinball (Episode 51)
-Pilotwings 64 (Episode 52)
-Yoshi (Episode 61-Uncredited)
-Krusty's Super Fun House (Episode 67)
-Vegas Stakes (Episode 68-1)
-Hey You, Pikachu! (Episode 75)

Well it was a great choice, completely baffling!

Much like Nathan, I only played #2 on a store demo where I couldn't make out any of the music. Went 0-for as a result.

I sucked hard on this episode, even missed a couple of games that I have played a lot. Still had a good time listening!

I hadn't intended for this to be such a hard episode... I didn't think Games 1 and 4 would be so hard. *shrug* Oh well.

Oh dear. I'm afraid I scored 0 on this one. The maddening part was that I mistook Game 2 for its sequel, because its music is very similar.  :@

No joke--I listened to episode #3 featuring the original Golden Sun mere minutes before this episode.  It didn't help me at all.  :(

FZeroBoyoSeptember 07, 2010

Ah, I went 0 for 5 this time around. It's a bit embarrassing that I missed the second game because I played it a lot in its time.  :-\

ShyguySeptember 07, 2010

I didn't even realize that Game 2 had any music in it. I guess I missed it.
