Re: Our next podcast recording (14.7.19) - 378: INSIDE

Limbo is one of my favorite games so my expectations for Inside were through the roof. I completed Inside in a single sitting the day I bought it, and I thought it was fantastic. It retains the intense atmosphere that was present in Limbo, but presents it in a different way. Everything in Inside has...

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

So much good stuff in Chrono Cross! If you’re interested in a little curio, have a listen to the music from the Japan only midquel Radical Dreamers. It’s a visual novel that would later form the basis of the first act of Chrono Cross. heres a playlist Thanks for the playlist link! I think I may lik...

Re: 374: Furi

The only real criticism I can think of is that the game doesn’t do a very good job of explaining all the details of the combats. I recently watched a Let’s Play of the tutorial fight, and I didn’t notice any prompts stating that you could deflect projectiles back at enemies, charge your sword for e...

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

Chrono Cross has my all time favorite soundtrack. I think all of us have that one game that we put on and let sit idle so we can listen to the music. This one is mine. All of the music in this game is amazing. If I could request the entire soundtrack, I would. Since I can’t, I had the impossibly har...

Re: 374: Furi

Prior to receiving Furi for free through Playstation Plus, I had never heard of it. It turned into my surprise favorite game of 2016. I gave it a shot after seeing the artwork’s resemblance to Afro Samurai. I’m glad I did. Furi’s frenetic combat was just the kick in the pants I needed to get me out ...

Re: Our next Final Fantasy podcast recording (8.6.19) - 373: Final Fantasy X

I wasn’t able to pick up Final Fantasy X at launch, as I didn’t have a Playstation 2 when it released, but when I finally got one, it was the second game I bought.. Metal Gear Solid 2 was the first. Once I got my hands on a copy, I blew through it in no time. I remember being impressed with how gorg...

Re: 367: DOOM (2016)

I’m not really sure I can contribute much else to this discussion as everyone else has pretty much covered my feelings about the game, but I’ll give it a shot. DOOM brings all that was good about old school shooters and smashes it into a modern day shooter. It’s gorgeous to watch, the levels are mas...

Re: Our next Final Fantasy podcast recording (13.4.19) - 365: Final Fantasy IX

Final Fantasy 9 is a pretty special game to me. Being a fan of the previous games, I had every intention of diving into this one as soon as possible. On a three day weekend, shortly after it released, I went over to a friend's house for the weekend and saw that he had just started Final Fantasy 9. I...

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

Since Can and Rinse just covered the latest Zelda release, I figured I would drop this little gem here. When I first came across this song, it was through an early file sharing application. LimeWire I think it was called. It was labeled System of a Down covers Zelda. Of course later on I learned thi...

Re: Our next podcast recording (16.3.19) - 361: Dark Souls III

One day while trying to gather some vertebra shackles for the Mound Makers covenant, I placed my summon sign down in Irithyll on a small ledge outside the door after the Pontiff Sulyvahn boss fight. I was summoned quickly and I ran back to the ledge at the beginning of the area to find the person wh...

Re: 360: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I have been a fan of the Zelda series for as long as I can remember. While I have enjoyed playing through the games as they have evolved over the years, the original that was released on the NES remains my personal favorite. I think it’s because, somewhere along the way, the Zelda games became less ...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

A game I would really like to see covered is Valkyrie Profile. This is a gem of an RPG that came out near the end of the PlayStation's lifecycle.

Re: 347: The Last Guardian

I have mixed feelings on this game. It’s a gorgeous thing to see in motion, the music is a joy to hear, and the story is wonderful. Unfortunately, this was almost completely ruined for me by the poor controls and some other sloppy design choices. It’s frustrating because this game should have been m...

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

So for this pick I bring you Nonuo Uematsu’s magnum opus, “Dancing Mad” from Final Fantasy 6, as performed by Uematsu’s own rock band, The Black Mages. One listen and it becomes obvious that this is how the song was meant to be heard. This is a monster of a track at just over 12 minutes long, and it...

Re: 350: Final Fantasy VII

Final Fantasy 7 rests firmly at number one on my list of favorite games. There is so much that I love about this game. I know this feeling isn’t universal, many feel it’s overrated, and it probably is. 20 years after its release it can be difficult to see why the game is so revered. The English tran...

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

tLq9DnkZHfU My selection is from Silent Hill 2. Forest is played when we first meet Angela. It starts with this very light, almost erratic piano sounding instrument, accompanied by some strings, that never quite settles into a uniform melody. And beneath that is this low, slow moving drone. It soun...

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

So this is a first time post for me. I thought for a while about what song I wanted to suggest. I went back and forth between a couple of old nostalgia trips and ultimately settled for this epic bubble bobble remix by 7bithero. I first came across this on OCremix a few years back and I instantly fel...
