Retro Blissed already covered Rock n Roll Racing on the Super Nintendo, but have you checked out the spiritual cousin to that SNES classic? Biker Mice from Mars gets the full review, horrible skit, and slapdash quiz show you expect from every episode of Retro Blissed. And also mutant biker mice. Because, why not?
Kirby's Adventure for the NES was the first time the pink puffball inhaled his enemies and gained their powers. The guys review this Nintendo classic and find out just how much food they can inhale, which it turns out is an entire Chinese buffet. Seriously though, sorry about the opening skit. It's really, REALLY stupid. So stupid.
Retro Blissed sends 2017 off with an awards show, honoring the best (and worst) of 2017. Then they undertake the epic task of ranking the top 10 games ever covered for the podcast. Oh, here's the name drop part of the speech: Sega. Nintendo. Mario. Sonic. Bubsy?
Crikey! It's Christmas time! In this holiday episode, Retro Blissed gives a full review of Mario Kart 64 along with "special" guest Trevor's brother, Derek. What makes this episode special? Well, an on air taste test of iconic Australian foods, a new bliss quiz, and three buffoons babbling joyously, of course. Merry Christmas, fans of the Bliss!
Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? Who knows, but Die Hard Arcade was a 1997 Sega Saturn console exclusive that really packed a punch. And a kick. And some bullets. And maybe a missile or two. Stick around for the full game discussion, review, and bliss quiz. Yippie ki yay, retro game fans!
Sub-Terrania for the Sega Genesis is a space shooter with very "interesting" multi-directional controls. Will this delight or infuriate?

Retro Blissed plays and reviews the original Alex Kidd for the Sega Master System. Miracle World may look like a Mario clone on the surface, but is there more under the hood? Will Johnny and Trevor disagree with their final score? Has there been a debate this heated since they tried to decide between pizza buffet or Chinese buffet? Stick around for the Bliss Quiz and find out if this show is a miracle or another belly flop into the shallow end of the kiddie pool!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: The Manhattan Project is a mouth full. It's also a game the guys have reminisced on many times on the show but never reviewed...until now. Does this NES beat 'em up live up to the nostalgia fueled memories, or will dreams be crushed and torn asunder like their belts after an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet? Listen for the full review, a brand new Bliss Quiz, and returning super guest Derek, brother of Trevor. Cowabunga!
Jeremy Clarkson. BBC. "The Stag." What do all of these things have in common? They are all completely unrelated to Top Gear for the Super Nintendo, of course. Top Gear is a classic 16-bit racer that was "the other choice" for early SNES adopters after Mario Kart. Known for its soundtrack and nearly unprecedented amount of content, how does Top Gear hold up in the Retro Blissed full point inspection and review? Stick around for the Bliss quiz and general bufoonery.

"Retro Scare Month" continues with Monster in My Pocket, a Konami action game based on those little rubber monsters we grew up with.

AAAHH!!! Real Monsters is a Sega Genesis game based on the Nickelodeon cartoon. Is it possible this game based on a kids cartoon is the creepiest game covered yet during Retro Scare Month?

Gremlins 2 for the Nintendo Entertainment System sees you playing as Gizmo in a bit of a house of horrors for the poor little guy. Hear the guys' review, bliss quiz, and general shenanigans. Does this licensed NES game surprise with its charm, or does it leave the feeling of eating day old Chinese buffet?
Retro Scare month begins with the frightfully difficult NES classic Ghosts n' Goblins. Will Trevor crack first from the brutal level design or from Johnny's flagrant use of vampire "impressions"? Only time will tell. Full game review and new bliss quiz!
HAL laboratories may be best known for the Kirby games or Super Smash Bros series. But Air Fortress for the NES could be the hidden gem you've been looking for. Or, it could be the pollution in your ozone. Tune in to find out! Also, no one dies in the opening skit. Spoilers!
NBA 2K for the Sega Dreamcast brought a new era of realism in basketball video games. With the recent release of NBA 2K18 promising unprecedented realism, see where it all started...and if it still holds up today.

(Find Mike's amazing artwork on Instagram, under warpzonegraphics.)
For episode 66 the guys decided to do things a little different: they sat down to play a whole pile of Atari 2600 sports games and review them one at a time. This episode features on of the biggest goofs in Retro Blissed history. Listen to see what we mean. Or skip this one. That may be better.
