PITAthon 2019: Dean vs. Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales

Meanwhile, in the world of Bubsy, Nurse Pretendo gets frustrated by a furry friend…

It wouldn’t be the PITAthon without the Bubster, and this year we’ve got a real doozie for Dean to take on for our grand finale. We’re diving deep into his catalog of awfulness to take on the horrors of Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales for Atari Jaguar. This is quite possibly the worst Bubsy game of them all, so Dean is going to have to keep his wits about him if he’s going to make it out alive.


Sunday, August 11th from 8am-10am 

Who will be playing:

Dean. Of course it’s going to be Dean playing. Who else would it be? Dean is one of the founders of Geekade, has appeared on many Geekade podcasts including Vest and Friends, Stone Age Gamer, Papercuts, and more. Dean has also done battle with Bubsy every year since the PITAthon started, and with this game proving to be the most putrid entry in the franchise, he has his work cut out for him. 

Why it’s a pain in the ass:

The original Bubsy is a deeply flawed, yet ultimately tolerable experience. Bubsy II is a dumpster fire. Fractured Furry Tales is a dumpster fire surrounded by angry wasps. This game is torturous to play. It has terribly unresponsive controls, repeats the same voice samples over and over, some of the worst level design in history, and it’s ugly to look at and listen to. It’s the total package of crap. Plus, we’ll be playing it on an original Atari Jaguar, which means Dean will be playing with the original Jaguar controller, and if you’ve never held one before, it may not be the worst controller ever made, but it’s up there. There’s no more fitting way to polish off the PITAthon. 

And that’s it, everyone! That’s all the games we’re going to be playing. Should be a heck of a time.See you at the show!
