Split into two parts after an unfortunate lock-up, the latest in the Can Joe Complete it in Three Hours series tackles Megaman 3! Topics include the NY Times puff piece about the nice Nazis down the street, with some chat about Stranger Things 2. Enjoy!
Del plays a game Joe knows nothing about and continues to not write copy, so anything could’ve happened! He could’ve beaten the whole of the internet at Diablo for all we know! Check it out!
Joe revisits a childhood classic as two of his unlikely heroes, Bill S. Preson Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan bumble through history, being super problematic in a way that just plain doesn’t bother Joe, for reasons that will be explained. Enjoy! Or don’t.
Joe tries his hand at a game the entire world discovered ages ago for some monster truck demolition soccer. Opening topic includes how we structure language to erase abuse and shield abusers. We had a power outage in the middle of the stream so it’s split into two parts.
Joe continues his nostalgia tour through his own childhood with the first revision of this iconic city-builder that launched an entire genre of games. Intro rant topic: Nazis borrowing the tools of the oppressed.
Joe takes a crack at finishing up Wing Commander: Privateer before the end of his third stream of the game. Also, PAUL MANAFORT HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH SEVERAL CRIMES!
Having previously obtained the best gear in record time, Joe starts tackling the story missions of Wing Commander: Privateer. Topics include #MeToo, and how easy it is to radicalize a young man.
Also, there’s a horrific spider attack in the middle of the stream. So, y’know, I guess you can count this as our Halloween episode this year.
Del (twitter.com/anrlizzy) is actually pretty terrible at Mega Man! (He wrote this copy. I’m not being mean.)
Joe plays Han Solo in a Star Wars world with the serial numbers filed off in a game he has played once a year since about 1995. We’re flyin’ around and space tradin’. We’re shooting down pirates. We’re upgrading. We’re delivering cargo. We’re upgrading. We’re talking to our viewers. We’re upgrading. Enjoy! Or don’t.
Joe’s trying his hand once again at this show’s very scaled down version of a speedrun, this time taking on The Blue Bomber’s second outing in Megaman 2: The earliest example of videogame music transcending the medium (or at leas that’s how what we call it to ourselves.) Enjoy! Or don’t!
