Re: Special No.3 - recording December 2018: Game Boy

The GameBoy was the very first console i've ever owned. To be precise, I've had a lousy Tiger-Game-And_watch-Knock-Off with a Star Trek game, but that was as fun, as setting a timer on a digital casio-watch. Anyway... Back in '96 I desperately wanted a Super Nintendo. I didn't care for the Upcoming ...

Re: Our next Resident Evil podcast recording (13.10.18) - 341: Resident Evil 5 (Biohazard 5)

If you take Resident Evil 5 for what it is, a coop-action-shooter, it is not a bad game at all. If you expect it to be an entry of a survival-horror-franchise, it will disappointed you. As a single-player-experience, I thought it tried way to hard to be serious and lacks the charming self awareness ...

Re: 344: Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Double Dash might by the worst Mario Kart for me. Okay, I haven't played 7 nor 8, but I'm sure, I prefer those over this one, since it doesn't have this awkward two-driver-mechanic. It's one of those things Nintendo did, during the GameCube-Era, where they appealed to the Hardcore-gamer and tried to...

Re: 318: The Stanley Parable

Stanley Parable the infinite game. I remember playing Stanley Parable for 3hours straight, before realizing that the game starts all over again and doesn't tell you, that it's over. For me, Stanley Parable almost feels like a sketch or a draft of an interesting videogame. I found the gameplay in its...

Re: 336: Resident Evil 4 (Biohazard 4)

Resident Evil 4 was the first game of the franchise I've ever played. At the time I wasn't into horror games at all. They were to scary for me. So I managed to gather 4 buddies at my place to play Resident Evil 4. We would pass the controller to each other every time we felt to scared to continue. A...

Re: 310: BioShock Infinite

I am still in love with the first BioShock game. I love the dystopian atmosphere, the chatter of the splicers, the graphics, the gameplay, the storytelling - BioShock ist one of my favourite games of all time. As I was quite disappointed by the sequel, I didn't have high expectations to BioShock Inf...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Hey guys! I would love to hear your thoughts on:

Super Metroid
Condemned: Criminial Origins
Prey (the first one)

Especially "Condemned" is a way too overlooked game. Please cover it!

Re: Tetris

I remember playing this game during class. I played it that much, that "Tetris" was haunting my dreams. When I was almost asleep, I saw the squares and L-shapes and wanted to turn them, so they fitted to the stacks. Since then I was paying more attention in class.

Re: Mario Kart 64

Mario Kart 64 was one of the first games I've played on the Nintendo 64. I was still struggling with the Analog Stick but was impressed by the graphics. While I've had a hard time with Super Mario Kart for the Super Nintendo, Mario Kart 64 felt a bit easier thanks to the improved graphics. I could a...

Re: Super Mario Kart

I guess, I was at the age of seven, when I played Super Mario Kart at my best friends Super Nintendo. Since I didn't have any sort of videogame console at my home, I was only able to play videogames at my friend's house. His collection was quite representative for the Super Nintendo: Super Mario All...

Re: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

There has been one particular reason for me to buy PlayStations the past twenty years: Naughty Dog games. I own every Naughty Dog game released since the first Crash Bandicoot and I am almost used to play great games by them. I wasn't dissapointed of Uncharted 4, even though I have to admit, that Na...

Re: Until Dawn

"Until Dawn" was one of the first games I played on a current 8th gen console. Graphicswise, this game was almost a system-seller. I remember looking at the pause-screen for quite a while and turning the character's head and eyes. I thought the gameplay was descent, and I liked the Idea of having a ...

Re: Life is Strange

I think "Life is strange" is a perfect example for how videogames have changed the past decades. The graphics might be meh, I find the gameplay-mechanics might be dull, but somehow this videogame worked for me. It shows me how important storytelling has become in videogames and that gameplay doesn't...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

since we've seen the new mass effect teaser, i'd thought some of you might like to hear this track. a couple of years ago i've made a mass effect remix, or actually it's a mash up of mass effects "uncharted worlds" and the music from the squad selection screen. I hope you like it. credits go to Sam ...

Re: Crazy Taxi

I remember playing Crazy Taxi on a Dreamcast in a shopping mall back in the 2000. I didn’t own a Dreamcast at the time and the only racing game I was playing at the time was formula one 97 on the Playstation. When I saw Crazy Taxis smooth graphics and the really unique gameplay, I was really jealous...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

h66gq40szjk One of my favourite tunes of all of time is the "Onett"-theme from Earthbound. For everyone who hasn't played this game, it's definitely worth a look. It's a mature, somehow naive, awkward and exciting japanese RPG from the SNES-era. The soundtrack supports the game's weirdness extremel...
