Re: 450: Wandersong

This was a perfect way to end what has been a pretty rubbish year. This game has such chill, positive vibes that I was always in a good mood after a session. The controls are really simple but they managed to squeeze a lot out of the setup. Using your voice, you can navigate a pirate ship, operate l...

Re: Our next podcast recording (21.11.20) - 446: Steep

One of my big regrets during the 6th generation was not picking up any of the SSX games as they seemed right up my alley. Hurtling down a mountain at blistering speeds while doing mad stunts is just my arcadey cup of tea. And since that series has all but kicked the bucket I was interested in seeing...

Re: PS3/360 games I shouldn't miss

Can you still buy games from Xbox Arcade? Because if so, I would recommend Splosionman. Really hyper kinetic platformer which at times mirrors Mega Drive Sonic in its best moments when you are going through a level flawlessly and hitting the enemies at just the right time. Really enjoyed that one. M...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just been going through Kirby Super Star Ultra on the DS. I always heard great things about the SNES original and I think those views are completely warranted. It is just pure fun in little 15 minute bursts which makes this perfect for handheld. I am going through it trying to finish as much as I ca...

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

Speaking of Rayman: Origins ’ OST: AG6jzjCSjtI “ Ocean World: Glou Glou ”, by Christophe Héral. I just enjoy the whimsical composition of this particular track. Jazz and cartoony voices, what a mix :lol: Yeah, this is an absolute banger, just pure fun. People have a go at water levels a lot but the...

Re: 443: Tetris Effect and Tetris 99

Tetris is one of those gaming series much like Street Fighter, where I enjoy them but I am absolutely horrendous at. I would fail continuously but I was always up for another go, aware that nine times out of ten, it was my fault that things did not pan out. It was only the Gameboy title that I was r...

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

The level where this ominous track first plays really makes this one of the most memorable tunes in Rayman Origins. You are frolicking in sunlit waters with happy squeaky voices singing like in typical water levels in the game but then you swim deeper and the voices fade away, it gets quieter and th...

Re: Are you genuinely excited for Xbox Series X|S & PS5?

As others have said, the graphical leap is very minuscule compared to say, PS2 to PS3. So to me at least, I really don't see the need for a new gen right now. I have such an absurd backlog of stuff for the PS4 that I want to check out before the thought of getting a Switch, never mind a PS5, enters ...

Hard agree on C&R ding an episode on this one. Just based on the concept alone, it really is one of the more unique experiences out there. Now there’s a blast from the past! I loved Tokyo Jungle! Pretty sure it’s on PlayStation Now too. Such an oddity but fascinating. Yeah, PlayStation Now is h...

Re: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Oh, Lara and Abe would have been more than ideal, and characters like Dart would have probably been most player's introduction to him similar to Ness or Roy and Marth before Fire emblem became big in the West. What could have been.

Re: Our next console special podcast recording (4.10.20) - Sony PlayStation 2

My first experience with the second Playstation console was really peculiar compared with the original with it’s at the time mind blowing graphics, FMV cutscenes and polygonal T. Rexes. When it first came out in late 2000, we rented it with two games: the original Timesplitters and some racing game;...

Re: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

I never played this but it is a pity to hear it did not reach the heights it could have. Playstation had already built a pretty extensive history by the time this was released and I really wonder how this would have turned out if Sony had put as much time and money into this as Nintendo clearly does...

Re: Rayman

Thanks for that tip, Jobo! I've always been interested in Rayman 2 and was considering getting a Dreamcast copy. What you say is encouraging. That is exactly the thing. Even before I finally gave up (which I'm not proud of!), all fun was sucked out of the game for me. Even a diabolical piece of sof...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Tried out Tokyo Jungle today and I am amazed that something like this has eluded my attention for so long. Survival games are not my cup of tea at all but the setting of a human free Tokyo and surviving and reproducing until you are eventually snuffed out is super compelling in this game. Obtaining ...

Currently watching Michiel's stream of this game and I am in utter awe at the god-like patience he is undergoing while dealing with the nonsense this game pulls. I particularly remember where I gave up as well. Band Land was destroying me so I thought I would go back to Moskito's Nest and maybe I mi...

Re: 439: A Boy and His Blob

I was always somewhat curious about this game seeing as it had an interesting concept and it being a re-imagining of an old NES title made me extra curious as more modern technology and design sensibilities could possibly refine a unique idea into a truly special experience. For me, A Boy and His Bl...

"Intro Story" by Yoshito Hirano and Yuka Tsujiyoko is a fantastic summary of Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door with its spirit of mystery and adventure. It lets you know that you are going to be going on a more epic journey than usual with Mario and signaled to me that this was going to be a...
