Podcast 220: Scorchio, Part 10 – International Superstar Soccer

by | Jun 5, 2020

In this week’s season finale, Edward and Ian play International Super Star Soccer Deluxe, the plucky cousin of the Winning Eleven Series of games that have long since cornered the market along with their FIFA counterparts.

Much resolution is reached, too, with the definitive call on all coin tosses, Global Hypercolour kit designs and (after admittedly some initial shots are fired) signs of a rapprochement in the Sega-Nintendo console wars.

Is Turkey in Africa? Would a robot that just barks out factual statements of the thing that just happened be better than Peter Drury? Will we get all the way through a podcast which isn’t about Sensible Soccer without mentioning Sensible Soccer? And is the introduction of VAR to video games a good idea? The answer to several of these questions is no. Find out to which over the next pulsating, gyrating, arcade action-packed hour!

Scorchio! will return with season two, The Seasoning, later this year.

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.
