Hey Poor Podcast Episode 56: Coleco Russian Nesting Doll


Yeah, we totally have a console! This is what a console looks like! Wait, you mean we had to make the parts for it OURSELVES?

Talking points: Nintendo Direct. Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Star Fox Zero. Kirby: Planet Robobot. Coleco Chameleon. Pokemon Blue. Shardlight. Stranger of Sword City. Jet Set Radio. Runescape 2007. Super Smash Bros. Black Desert Online. Lompaku Graffitti. Samurai Warriors 4 Empires. Good Robot.

Jay Petrequin, Francis Dipersio, Adam Foster, Mike Vito, and Donald Burton come together to talk about the woes of release dates, and the perils of pushing games of questionable quality. Then it’s time to talk about the Coleco Chameleon, or, as it should be called, the bootleg Super Nintendo. We also answer some lovely Facebook questions. What games have made you throw your controller in anger? Why is apple pie so good? What studio would you like to see handle a new game in a series you love? When the Sam Hell is Zelda U coming out? All these questions answered, and more! Frank gets really excited about dads. Jay gets a fun colonoscopy. Don gives everyone “the talk.” Mike plays with himself. Adam enjoys some delicious Black Dessert.


The Hey Poor Podcast can be found and subscribed to on iTunes and Stitcher. In addition to the website, Hey Poor Player can be found in page and group form on Facebook,  screeching away like alarmed barn owls on Twitter, trying and failing to create anything worth watching on Youtube, and playing away for your entertainment on Twitch. Check out Ser’s work on Bullet Heaven, and at Press Pause Radio. You can also follow us on Twitter: Jay – Adam – Gary – JonathanSer – Alex – Mike

Jay Petrequin started writing at HeyPoorPlayer in the summer of 2012, but first got his start writing for It's Super Effective, a Pokemon podcast that happened to be a reflection of two of his biggest interests: pocket monsters, and making people listen to him say things.
