Podcast 210: Scorchio, Part 4 – Super Soccer

by | Apr 24, 2020

This week on Scorchio!, Edward and Ian venture behind enemy lines in the console wars to assess the lasting cultural impact of the SNES game Super Soccer. Both of our heroes have a variety of fruity and completely groundless thoughts and feelings about the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Perhaps it was karma from these which saw one of our panel receive the kind of hiding from the CPU normally reserved for characters in lazily-written 1990s sitcoms during play testing? There’s analysis of Ian’s income in 1992, an empty threat to invade a sovereign European nation and wistful reminiscence about characters as varied as Super Mario, Arthur Lowe and Michel Preud’homme. Do not play this game. But do listen to this podcast, as we bunny hop together in unison.
