Gauntlet II

The arcade megahit comes to the NES and the 2 Dudes and a NES podcast! Michael and Justin experience all the genuine arcade action, including the original digitized sound and spellbinding graphics. And Brother Aiden experiences every one of the over 100 arcade mazes complete with all the sorcerous secret rooms, traps, monster generators, transporters, force fields, and villains - it's all straight from the arcades, and it's all here. And like the arcade game, up to four Brothers can join...


Captain Skyhawk

Soar where no podcast has gone before! No one noticed when they launched. And now it might be too late to stop them! In remote corners of the globe, Genesis Gem invaders are draining Earth's energy and "feeding" it to their space station. When the power drain is complete, the Genesis Gems plan to vaporize 2 Dudes and a NES with a deadly laser blast. You, dear listener, are Captain Skyhawk - the only person who can stop them! Climb aboard your hi-tech F-14VTS jet - fully equipped with the...



Ahoy, you swarthy gold swiping, ship sinking sea dog! Modern warfare is no match for the fierce realism of Steven Michael and Aaron. Aye, matey! That's why plundering and pillaging are back in style, as you command the role of a high seas high-jacker. Either an English Buccaneer (Michael), Dutch Adventurer (Justin), Spanish Renegade (Aaron), or French Explorer (Steven Michael), each with a different skill level and strategic impact. As a swashbuckling Bit Brother, you'll barter with Aaron,...


Catchup with Steven Michael from Facebook

Psych! You thought this was going to be the Pirates! episode didn't you? Well, we did too. Unfortunately, most everyone couldn't make it on this episode. However, Steven and Michael had already sat down so they figured it might as well serve as a chance to catchup and talk games and life anyway. Look forward to several topics including: PS5, wild birds, therapy sessions about obsessing over side quests in games, $GME, and and a lot more!


Yoshi's Cookie

Michael and Justin are filling in at the Cookie Factory, and they need your help! Fresh baked cookies roll out of the ovens. It's up to Michael to sort and stack 'em before they pile too high! Line up a row of the same kind of cookies either vertically or horizontally, and they vanish! Clear the screen to move on to a new level of cookie chaos. Matt Raithel of Graphite Labs appears from time to time to stir things up. Play for high score, or head-to-head against a fellow Bit Brother. The...


Faria: A World of Mystery and Danger!

Paul has been kidnapped by a fiendishly powerful Andy for his bride. The Bit Brothers and Dudes are all powerless to rescue him... And now Justin...


Wall Street Kid

Where life, love and money all depend on how well you play the game. Justin can make billions of dollars when he deals with the giants of Wall Street, the Bit Brothers community. Not only does Justin take risks by playing the stock market and buying up GameStop stonk, but he must prove that he can uphold a high standard of living. Michael dreams of fame and fortune and this Life Simulation game is his way to the top. He can taste the victory of success, but only if he is strong enough to...


Adventure Island

Michael just found out that Justin was kidnapped by Brother Tyler and taken to Adventure Island in the South Pacific. Michael lands on Adventure Island without weapons or food. The island is thick with tropical forest, mountains, and caves. Hidden on the island are his skateboard, axe, food, and other helpful tools you must find by exploring the island. Michael better find the weapons and food quickly because he will need them to fight Brother Tyler's spiders, snakes, bats, and demons....


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project

COWABUNGA, IT'S A FIRST! VACATIONING 2 DUDES TAKE ON THE ULTIMATE TOURIST TRAP! Surf's up, dude! The 2 Dudes and a NES and the Turtle Flakes podcast make a little getaway to the Sunshine State. Until the Genesis Gems make a major getaway with the entire island of Manhattan! Their power hungry plot gets even more bogus when Brother Tim McGowan becomes part of the heist. What a relaxing vacation. Not! Those mondo Dudes must make waves to get back home to save the podcast and Manhattan, and...

Mighty Final Fight

The dudes are joined by developer Matt Hughson (@matthughson) to talk about Matt's game, From Below, as well as Mighty Final Fight.

Goonies II

We are finally back to talking about games and according to Dude Andy, this one is a guaranteed good game. Now, is it a good podcast? We'll let you decide. This episode we are talking about the Goonies II.


Not Goonies II

So we go on another hiatus and comeback with an episode that IS NOT about the game we promised. We're the worst. However, we promise this is a quality episode about a variety of topics including: Hopefully somewhere in there you can find something to listen to while we prepare a Goonies II episode. Thank you guys for sticking around "during these trying times."


Tecmo Super Bowl

Here it is. We discuss arguably the greatest sports game of all time thanks to a Patreon Pick from Tyler! We don't want to hear it if we didn't discuss it to your liking, we pulled out all stops on this one: two hours long, Namo Gamo on as guests, the word poop on at least four occasions, throwback to #SweetFeed. This episode is a winner. Be sure to check out Namo Gamo's game Basketball Classics on Steam. It truly is what Tecmo Super Bowl would be if it was a basketball...


Stanley: The Search for Dr. Livingston

The dudes are joined by JZNES on this classic style episode: only about 10 minutes of tangents at the start, a quiz game, plenty of game talk. So you guys are in for a real treat with this one. If you want to hear more from JZNES, be sure and check out his YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/XBranchProductions Also, you can support the Bit Brothers Network on our Patreon page here: https://www.patreon.com/bitbros


Kid Klown

Ain't no klowning around on this episode. Ah, who are we kidding? Skip 25 minutes in again if you want to get to game talk, but you'll miss out on a great "Ask Justin" segment.

Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Another episode, another round of non-game talk. Skip to around 25 minutes if you want pure game talk, but there is a lot of good Michael and Justin nostalgia at the beginning if you're in the mood.

Holy Diver

The Dudes discuss their first Japanese exclusive game! That is if you can get past the COVID-19 talk. Seriously, just skip to about 20 minutes into the podcast and ignore all that virus talk at the beginning. What would a game named after the Dio album Holy Diver be like? Well for starters, it's Japanese only. For other crazy information and game discussion about this very "metal" game, tune in!

Solomon's Key

The Dudes are back baby! It's been a long 6 months, but hopefully it was all worth the wait as Justin and Michael sit down to talk about Brother Andrew's Patreon Pick... Solomon's Key! Brought to you by the Bit Brothers Network
