E056 - Halo 2 (reprise)

On January 26, 2020, Hammy was unable to record an episode for the podcast. The game that week was Halo 2. In that episode, Caitlin (aka Treet) filled in and you guys got a very below average review of Halo 2 that really did the game no justice. Today we fix that wrong as we strike episode 40 from our memories (but not our archives if you want to go back and listen to that abomination) and bring you Halo 2 (reprised).  

Hear about our playthrough and our thoughts of the game. As with every Halo game, we encourage everyone to listen to our friends at Finish the Fight for a much more in-depth review of Halo 2.

 For our love of the original Donkey Kong County, we couldn't wait to review Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Many consider this to the be best in the series because it took everything from the first installment and made it better: Two fast main characters. A buddy system. More difficult levels. Completing bonus areas matter. Gameplay as the animal characters instead of riding them. Temporary invincibility.

 The original DKC is still the top notch for us as far as the series goes but this does make a good case for being the superior game.

 Check out our YouTube for a playthrough of this and all of our games and let us know what you think in the comments.

 Welcome to the "second half" of the YEAR OF HAM AND SPAM!!! We say send half because this is the second batch of games we selected for the podcast and we commit swinging in Episode 031!!! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time was the epitome of SNES gaming for Clint and Hammy!! One of the OG games that brought the group together as gamers and is near and dear to our hearts.

 Hear our detailed review of this SNES classic as well as plenty of pig trails we go down and stories that go with it.

 Bittersweet episode today as we round out our original 30 episodes. When we set out to do a podcast, never did we think we would reach 10 episodes much less 30. Our original 10 were all selected the week of recording with a lot of running around to get all the information gathered in a small amount of time.

 After episode 10, we decided to map everything out with the conclusion being Episode 30 - Zelda: A Link to the Past. Listen as we review this 1991 classic. This was a game Hammy played and beat some 25 years ago and this is the only Zelda title that Clint played in depth. How does it play today and hold up to our memories?

 Join us next week when we review Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time for the SNES!!! Please visit hamandspam.com and send us all of your TMNT IV questions, comments, and memories to our social media and be a part of the show!!

 Big thanks to our supporters and listeners. Without you, there would not be a Ham & Spam Retro Review. Also a big shout out to the other podcasts that have welcomed us to the brotherhood and have been super supportive. Please help us support them:
