In recent weeks, I’ve had the absolute pleasure of playing a supporting role in The Vine: Donkey Kong Audio Programme. I must insist you have the absolute pleasure of listening to it.
Not into video games? That’s okay, neither are the hosts. Think of it as the legitimate front for crude but classy conversational comedy. It’s a mammoth production, a huge labour of love, and brimming with the warmly familiar, silky-smooth voices of Rubber Chicken alumni.
Be warned: Emmy-winnng hosts Chad and Hyle are not the most tactful gentlemen, and tend to use masturbation jokes as punctuation. You’ll hate yourself for laughing, but oh, you will laugh.

I’m told the website you’re currently reading has an audio programme too. It’s not ringing any bells, but I’ll look into it.

“We arent really new. We’ve been kicking like a mutated cow for nearly 3 years now, and I think we’re finally recieving the attention we deserve.”
Ahh, Rare-Extreme. “Sharply written”, “witty” and “reliable” are but a few adjectives one could easily place next to their name with the aid of any functional writing instrument or word processor. The technology is there, and we aren’t in a position to stop you.
Over the years R-E have made contact with many reliable inside sources, promising the secret behind Banjo-Kazooie’s infamous “Stop ‘N’ Swop” feature (but never revealing it), confirming Perfect Dark 2′s appearance at E3 2002 (which never showed it), and even scoring a tour of Rare HQ. Yes, they’ve done it all. We at The Rubber Chicken might have had occasional creative differences with Rare-Extreme, but it doesn’t mean we don’t respect them as fellow journalists. Sometimes a gentleman must swallow his pride and give credit to his enemies. In the following exposé, we hope to establish their credibility once and for all.

The Rubber Chicken began as a Nintendo reviews page with silly animations. Out of respect for history, we have kept some of the more readable specimens in our archive. Enjoy!
A guest review by “Canjo B. Rarebear”.
Let’s start out this review by first stating that my review is based on a memory of playing the game for five minute one year ago in a car ride with my sister’s GBA, which was actually mine, but which she got to carry around all the time for some reason. Since my memory of the game is dubious at best, the majority of this review will focus on the letter R instead of the game.

The Rubber Chicken began life as a Nintendo review website with silly animations. As a service to curious Google searchers, we have kept the least embarrassing reviews of selected obscurer games in the archive.
If this isn’t what you’re after: hey, turns out we’re a comedy website now.
A review by Galder Weatherwax’s Hat.
Now, we all know how much fun publishers had resurrecting an aged title onto a teabag-sized cartridge and fobbing it off as a keen slice of nostalgia-packed fun for the Game Boy Color, and this is a trend which looks set to continue on the heavenly Game Boy Advance. Luckily though, the money-grabbers now have a pool of nice 16-bit titles to dip into, so we’re not to be shafted quite so badly. Huzzah!
