Corn Log, Stardate 2.1.16. Another episode of the Portable Power Podcast appears. Marc starts with a review of I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream. Does he find the gameplay as torturous as the subject matter? Emrys discovers sometimes the treatment is worse than the affliction in Amateur Surgeon 3 for Android. Finally, Marc travels through time via worm hole (or corn hole?) to review Metroid Zero Mission, a port for the Wii U of the Gameboy Advance game that was itself an updated port of the NES classic Metroid. Is all of the updating and porting enough to rend a hole in the fabric of space and time? The answer (and a lot of gross burping noises) await you.
This episode, the Portable Power Podcast joins the Mega May celebration with in-depth reviews of Mega Man’s portable adventures. Kevin and Marc travel to the year 20XX and send rebuilt robot masters to the scrap heap in Mega Man II-IV. In Mega Man V, Kevin battles the menace of the Star Droids, a threat so dire that Dr. Wily totally isn’t behind it all (yes, he is). Once the blue bomber’s adventures on the green screen are wrapped up, Emrys wall jumps through a dystopian future and gives a live review of his battle with the Mavericks in Mega Man Xtreme for Game Boy Color. All this and a debate for the ages: does Mystique, of X-Men fame, have a vagina? Our answers may surprise you!
