The lights are on
This week we dust off an old SNES cartridge to reveal the vivid, whimsical Disney platformer beneath. Comedian and video game music aficionado Brent Weinbach joins us as a special guest as we face off against the grotesque mutant offspring of Pete, jog on a gigantic tomato, and generally get our asses handed to us.
In addition to Brent, the cast this week features Andrew Reiner, Kyle Hilliard, Ben Hanson, and myself as host. Thanks to Brent for taking a break from making people laugh really hard and hosting the terrific Legacy Music Hour podcast. Check out the Legacy Music Hour (available on iTunes) if you want to fill your ears with tasty 8- and 16-bit music as well as delectable discussion about said tracks.

Rhythm Heaven looks kinda Awesome. Mickey was great too though. Love the graphics and the music was pretty good.
My friend and I beat this game several times. Great game, great soundtrack, good difficulty scale. Definitely a classic, for me.
This game was very difficult for me when I played the GBA version when I was around 8 or 9... No different now, apparently!
Brent needs to stop complaining on what games SHOULD be and what games ARE. They are not all the same. Stop complaining. Everyone likes what they like no matter HOW *** the game actually is lol.
Highlight of this Replay: the Mickey impersonations.
awesome replay guys, really liked the music discussions, thanks!
First game: standard, looks good and likely played well.
Second game: SUPER FANTASTIC EXPLODING EXTRAVANGA FUN TIME FOR YOU AND ALL INVOLVED!!!!!!!!
Looking at this game, and then Epic Mickey, I say "Wow! Gaming has come a long way in 20 years!"
I played the hell out of this game back in the day.
Retro gamer here and I approve of many things said in this replay.
Loved this replay. I forgot this Mickey game ever existed. I must have played it when I was really young, because the memory is faint. It was REALLY bizarre seeing this again and flashing back...
Great replay as always guys - Brent was a cool guest btw, his enthusiasm for video game music is contagious.
That stage 2 music sounds like Kokiri Forest!
Did anyone else notice the wizards raging boner??
I'm huge fan of video game music and while some soundtracks today aren't always as immeadiately endearing, I think there are many that are either just as good or even better than the classics. The same holds true for art style, atmosphere and tone.
I think each game should be judged on its own merits and shouldn't be dimissed because of when it came out.
