Re: Visual Novels

I've been meaning to get my hands on 428 for a while now. I have Silver Case and 25th Ward, and have been meaning to get to them but haven't had time. I just started YU-NO: A girl who chants love at the bound of this world. It's supposedly based on, or partially based on a Harlan Ellison story, so I...

Re: Video game tie-in media

There is the Danganronpa anime that bridges the second and third game that is not based on anything.

It was good and didn't feel like a cheap cash-in.

I haven't read very much, but I did read the manga for Suikoden 3 and it was pretty good!

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

I've probably already suggested it, but is Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne on the list?

I figured I'd ask since a port got announced today.

Re: Videogame News

Shin Megami Nocturne

is getting a Switch port, coming Spring 2021.

Perhaps a good prompt to include it on next year's Cane & Rinse? :D

SMT V has a nebulous release date of 2021!

(I'll believe it when I see it)

Re: Our next podcast recording (18.7.20) - 428: The World Ends With You

I had high hopes that TWEWY would bring back the halcyon days of Square from the 90s where they experimented and produced interesting new titles. It partially succeeds but I just couldn't get the controls on the DS to work. Finicky, flawed...whatever you want to call it...they just didn't gel with m...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

Shameless promotion for myself. I've been going stir crazy lately and decided to hunker down and teach myself some basic video editing. Two editing platforms, an audio editing platform, five days and ten render attempts later, I finally managed to make my first video. It's about shopping for games i...

The Batmobile parts were such a slog that I couldn't be bothered to finish the game.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Due to my incredible frustration with Atlus and Nintendo regarding SMT V, I modded my SNES mini and started playing SMT I.

It's pretty good!

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

That would be cool. There's a C64 lying around at my girlfriends parents, I wonder if there's a way of downloading games and transferring them to cassette to play authentically. That would be brilliant if it's possible. Failing that I suppose the games themselves would only be pennies on eBay and t...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

General question - does anyone have a working C64 or C64 emulator so that they would be willing to cover C64 games? (I'm thinking stuff like Wasteland, Bard's Tale, the SSI D&D games).

Guessing no, but just curious.

Re: 423: Batman: Arkham Knight

I've been increasingly less enamoured with the Batman games since they became Assassin's Creed with Batman. The Batmobile was a forced gimmick that was fun for a bit but the forced platforming with it was a nightmare. The story was intriguing but I couldn't bring myself to finish the game due to the...

Re: Let's have a thread about the virus, then. We might as well.

Things are just starting to break out where I am. (Ottawa). It looks like our PM might have it as well as other party leaders and I live about four blocks from where they all work. Of course, now people are mass buying at the grocery store, and me being a poor student can barely afford bog roll. If ...

Well. This is unexpected, but cool.

Blade Runner (the PC game) is being ported to consoles.

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (23.2.20) - 408: Tales from the Borderlands

Full confession - I do not enjoy Borderlands as a series. I played the first game co-op with a friend of mine and literally fell asleep as we played. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this game and I would love to see a Fallout/Obsidian style RPG in this world because there's genuine merit in it...

Re: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore

I'm still infuriated at the fact we've had this, Catherine AND a P5 spin-off announced and released all AFTER SMT V was announced and we've had ZERO information on it. It's bloody infuriating.

Re: Psikyo Shooting Stars

I picked up the Asian releases for these in Hong Kong - they are three separate volumes with four games on each cartridge. I prefer this format of six games per cart, but don't have the money to double dip right now, sadly. Zero Gunner 2 is a lot of fun, as is Gunbarich. I had never really played an...

Re: Planescape: Torment - Cane and Rinse 398

I was listening to the show on this game today and it was interesting to hear that someone (can't remember who) had to start over because of the combat. I played the game late last year and did exactly what they did - points in charisma and wisdom, wanting to be a magic user. Got into the main town ...

Re: 449: Super Mario Odyssey

I've played multiple Mario games, but this is the first one I've actually finished. I'm not very good at platformers, but I'd heard so much positive buzz about the game that I had to grab it when I purchased my Switch. And that buzz was correct! There is so much variety in this game that I was alway...
