  1. Of course I remember You Can’t Do That On Television; didn’t know that was actual waste though. Remember the 80’s when a lot of children’s television was actually produced in Canada, and cartoons were produced there or in Europe, animated in Japan, and localized to the USA.
    Speaking of age and what we watched when we were young, my 38th birthday is coming up in about a week. I’ll be taking that day off of work to go to the dentist and get 2 crowns put in after recent root canals. This is middle age.
    For the CaspiQuiz, this time I’ll split the difference and guess 30. Just kidding, I’ll think about it a little longer.

  2. It’s hard to make a joke like that land in a forum post. Playing on some of the answers you’ve gotten previously.

  3. I sadly don’t remember You can’t do that on Television. I’m not sure but wasn’t there a game show that used the green slime. I’m almost 50, remembering things 40 years ago is hard.

  4. Yes. After the success of rebroadcasts of You Can’t Do That on Television, Nickelodeon adopted the green slime as part of their own brand, and then they incorporated it into their obstacle-course game show, Double Dare, hosted by Marc Summers.

  5. I’m 35 and grew up in Scotland, and we had Get your own back in the 90s on TV, it sounds similarly traumatic to children. Although the idea was they could “gunk” their uncle or parents or whoever had wronged them in some way. It involved dunking them into slime if I remember right. What was the obsession with this in the 80s and 90s.

    Also, you guys and quite a lot of other podcasts are still referring to E3 this year; even though its been cancelled are we still expecting announcements around that time, or are each of the companies doing their own thing?

    For me, the Caspi Quiz, its ‘F in the chat!’

    F has to be the letter you have most of in your switch library.

  6. Ach Berserk, I dinnae ken ye were a SCOOTSMAN!

    After the podcast recorded, I was surprised to find that everyone else is talking about ‘Not-E3’ as well, so it seems that my clever joke wasn’t particularly unique.

    To answer your question: yes, everyone is still referring to Not-E3 because many of the companies that would ordinarily present at the conference are instead releasing video presentations online, or streaming them live. Several sites (GameSpot for instance) have assembled these presentations together into a schedule. We will be presenting that schedule next week, and updating it as we draw closer to the events that are on it.

    So, the only major differences this year from a normal E3 year is that there isn’t a centralised authority handling the scheduling and broadcast of various announcements and panels. But, many of the usual companies are still doing their material, and quite a few press outlets are stepping into the breach to provide a schedule of events.

    We will be reporting at it in the same way we always do, by sending our entire staff to the West Coast, to report on it live. Because our credibility matter to us.

  7. I’m going to guess M, megaman, metroid, mario. I assume fill it up. Could be wrong.

  8. Then my answer is S for Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Maker 2, Super Mario 3D Allstars, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Funky, Super Smash Bros, Shadowgate, Sonic Mania, SNES Online, and the off-chance you still have SaGa Frontier installed.

  9. I totally forgot Shadowgate came out on Switch. I never got to play the remake. The original game brings back good memories. I use to hang out with a friend and we played all the point and click games on Nes.
