Faxanadu

With a game library as massive as the NES, there will come a time when the Dudes discuss a game that not even they are experts on. Never fear! The Dudes search far and wide to bring in others that know the game well so that the listeners will not suffer (we think).

This week the Dudes talk about the RPG Faxanadu and they bring in special guest Aron Robison to help them out. Aron is a Faxanadu Guru and he sits down to talk with the Dudes about this game. While the Dudes have never got to the end of this game, Aron has and he tells us about the last time he beat the game.

While being a more obscure NES title, Faxanadu had some fame in its time. It was one of the early RPG’s and it had a place on Nintendo Power’s top 30 games for some time. For more on this game, give the Dudes a chance and have a listen.
