Re: 406: Shadow of the Colossus (2018)

If you leave “The Wanderer” untouched in this version of Shadow of the Colossus, he will pick up his foot and examine his shoe in a gesture familiar to anyone who’s walked through a park frequented by careless dog owners. It made me wonder if Bluepoint developers felt a bit like they too had “steppe...

Re: Super Mario Maker 2 - **1st Page For Community Level Codes**

I've given 2 thirty or so minute goes on the prickly stage Suits and I'm not quite there. Died in the final funnel a few times, but I still can't consistently get through the second choke point where that Toad comment is. Having fun with the challenge though and it's making me think about design, in...

Re: 402: God of War (2018) *recording the week ending 19th Jan.*

As time passes it is normal to compare the people in our lives now to the versions of themselves we knew from the past. We hope they get better, and I can say that for me, this version of Kratos is a lot more enjoyable to spend time with than the throbbing slab of pixels and pain I remember from the...

Re: Games Completed 2019

If 2019 proved anything it is that games have always been great, but they just keep getting better. From their construction to the communities around them (like this one), things just keep improving. Here’s to 2020 keeping up the push forward, and to a safe and happy holiday season for us all. If yo...

Re: Super Mario Maker 2 - **1st Page For Community Level Codes**

I put a new one together too. Finished five days before my fake little deadline I was having so much fun with the new Link stuff. Here's the code.

Re: Super Mario Maker 2 - **1st Page For Community Level Codes**

This update is pretty cool, but making a Link based level seems pretty time consuming. I'm going to try to build a good one for the twentieth. Anybody else interested in an arbitrary deadline for swapping level codes to get the juices flowing?

Re: 389: Donkey Kong Country trilogy

I don’t know how we did it. I just remember that during 3 consecutive Christmas holidays my little brother, his best friend, and I sat on our landing and beat these games in Co-Op mode deploying some sort of elaborate controller passing system. It couldn’t have been easy, what with the odd man out a...

Re: Our next podcast recording (24.8.19) - 384: SUPERHOT

I just finished playing Super Hot on Switch. I played it completely in handheld mode, because we are moving, and I’m in a gamer free house. I’ve got some intermittent joy con drift issues happening, which aren’t great for this game, but managed anyways. I’d never played Super Hot before, so I can’t ...

Re: Super Mario Maker 2 - **1st Page For Community Level Codes**

Here's the best thing I can say about the C and R levels. I've got maybe a dozen Nintendo made levels in the story mode to mop up, and I never got to any of them last night because I got wrapped up playing our community ones. Keep them coming team C and R.

I hope they either include this, or at least a playlist system. How cool would it be to ostensibly have a Cane and Rinse community made Mario game.

Re: 378: INSIDE

I started Inside with all the best intentions. It was a short game, with an art style I liked,so I swore that even when stuck on a puzzle, there was no need to cut corners. Sure my string-bean, boy-child avatar got unceremoniously strangled by thugs early on, but that was just because I didn’t know ...

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

Back in the year 2000 when princesses wanted kidnapping and monkey-tailed space homunculi wore cuffs but no sleeves, Final Fantasy IX had to be quite a game. Those lush backgrounds, that universe of music, those “the future is now” CGI cutscenes, must have made it seem like Square Enix bent time and...

Everybody's favorite GBA titles

I've never played a GBA game, but Switch has me loving portable systems and it sounds like I missed out on some true classics. A couple questions I figured forum members could help me out on. GBA SP or DS Lite? I imagine just because it's newer and I love my New 2DS the DS Lite is the way to go, but...

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

The team making The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild must have been familiar with that old Picasso line that goes something like, “Good artists copy.
