Episode 9 – Ecco the Dolphin

“Ecco, PLEASE!” … for those who watched Host Katie stream this episode’s game, Ecco the Dolphin for the Sega Genesis, you heard that phrase MANY times.  After many (many) weeks of putting it off, Chris and Katie are diving in and learning the ins and outs of this classic.  The beautiful music and the playful graphics, of course!  But also, the incredibly frustrating controls and lack of information to guide you through the game.

There is a lot of great work done in this game, and a ton of creative and fun levels along the way.  However, there’s also some times that both of our hosts definitely wanted to tear their hair out and rage-quit on trying to play through this game.  Through those struggles and successes, a pretty fun game did shine its way through!

Oh, and then there was a trip to Atlantis, time travel back into the past, and fighting a H.R. Giger-esque alien queen onboard her space ship.  Because, why not?

Take a deep breath, jump on in, and listen to the fun!
