Podcast 214: Scorchio, Part 6: World Championship Soccer 2

by | May 8, 2020

This week, Edward and Ian continue to be cockteases of the worst possible kind, playing a football game programmed by Sensible Software that isn’t Sensible Soccer, while you all sit around on tenterhooks. Vinegar strokes or no, World Championship Soccer II on the Sega Mega Drive is an interesting curiosity, part fun-filled arcade romp and part calamatously shonky and infuriating missed opportunity. A slap in the face for anyone who ever thought that World Cup football might be good and pure.

Can England overcome the odds at Italia 90 this time around, now that United Arab Emirates are off the menu for some completely inexplicable reason? And is a farm without a barn full of ducks even a farm at all? We find out.

And finally, a humble request. I have lost all overtime at work, and my wife has been unable to work at all this last few weeks. We have lost more than £1000 a month and are struggling to make even to most basic ends meet. we also still have our Redbubble shop, for the sartorially minded amongst you, and subscribe through joining us on Patreon. We even now have a Kofi button on the site, so do feel free to send us whatever you’re able to.
