This whole thing lined up way too serendipitous, if you think about it. We hit our 25th episode and through absolutely no arrangement on our part, we wind up covering one of the most iconic moments for the TMNT and, indeed, the history of video games. So we made a little party out of it and invited some friends to sit in with us and have a good time. And it all went so well. These things don’t seem to happen often in life; moments when fate kind of smiles on you and takes a break from setting its myriad hurdles in your path.
Forgive me for the little Danny Tanner moment we’re about to have here and listen: THANK YOU. Each and every one of you who have listened, reached out to us, joked around with us, and generally helped to make this show so much fun to do. There are a million and one podcasts you could be listening to when you decide to listen to ours and that time you invest isn’t taken for granted. We have been hatching some ideas for what we want to do for #50 and many of them include you guys, so be ready! Wanna crack open this episode yet? Let’s do this!
In celebration of our landmark 25th episode, we play through and review the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade Game. For our opener we are joined in studio by a few friends of the show live in the studio. Later, we finally welcome resident video game expert and good friend of the show Mr. Joe Martin to join us as we commence a thorough look at the game, level by level. Throughout the excite-fest we muse on the TampaCon overcrowding disaster, news concerning the new TMNT series, the return of Merle Haggler, and a Lightning game that nearly came to fisticuffs. Saucy!
