Re: Games Completed 2021

January 30: Celeste February 12: Katamari Damacy Rerolled February 28: Panzer Dragoon Remake Just blasted through this in roughly an hour today. Never played the Saturn original (in fact, never played the Saturn in my life!) so it was good experiencing this. I enjoyed it a lot and can see myself go...

Re: 499 - Another World

I remember trying this out on a Mega Drive emulator ages ago. I was impressed with the graphics especially for 1991. But repeatedly dying due to the very stiff controls was very aggravating for me. I kept dying at or just after the little worm creature from the very beginning. I admit it may be that...

Re: 465 - Mario Kart Wii

This was big in my social circle when it hit. Double Dash just did not do it for me so this was a nice return to the long nights of four player races which were punctuated with laughing, swearing and shouts of disbelief. Though there are those who disliked the element of Mario Kart where more skille...

Re: 470 - Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy

This was the game that made me stand up and take notice of the PS2. The creators of Crash Bandicoot making a new open world 3D platformer? Sign me up! I remember renting a PS2 with this game and had to play long sessions due to not having a memory card at the time. I got as far as the water temple t...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I have been on a bit of a remake streak lately as I am currently playing Panzer Dragoon for PS4. I never played the Saturn and I was always interested in this series. Got to Level 6 in over an hour but it gets pretty intense so got a game over and was shocked that I had to actually start from the be...

Re: Duke Nukem 3D

Shite is quite mild in the grand scheme of things, still was a bit of a shock to hear it on the podcast though! Considering the subject matter in this episode, you can afford to be a bit more risque I guess.

Re: Duke Nukem 3D

My first and only experience of Duke was that awful demo of Duke Nukem Forever which I can't even remember why but I just remember hating it. But despite that dodgy record with the character I still really liked this episode. The discussion on the outdated humour reminded me of this great video wher...

Re: January 2021

Thanks for reading my (in hindsight) overly long comment! Just writing to say that the series that I was referring to was Sonic as Jay was suggesting that the podcast not focus too hard on the series because of its admittedly quite mixed record and it would put listeners off. I completely disagree a...

Re: Games Completed 2021

January 30: Celeste February 12: Katamari Damacy Rerolled It was nice to play the original Katamari for the first time. Music, visuals and the satisfaction of making your katamari bigger all added up to a really fun experience. It does a nice job of progressing from small to big as the game progres...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Being European, I never got to play the original Katamari Damacy so seeing that the remake of this first game, Katamari Damacy REROLL was available on PS4 made me want to check it out. Done 6 levels so far and the hardest one by far was to make a katamari of 1m in 10 mins, takes ages to get it big a...

Re: 473 - Sonic the Hedgehog

I did play Sonic before this on my cousin’s Master system but seeing him in his original form on the Mega Drive was what really made me fall in love with the character. Green Hill zone is without a doubt the most iconic first level in video game history. The level design allowing the player to zip a...

Re: Our next Console Special podcast recording (3.4.21) - Nintendo 64

Yeah sorry, this one was very hard to stay brief on. This is as good as I could do to sum up my feelings on this legend of a console. This console is very important to me on multiple levels. This was the first console I ever properly owned, the last console we owned being the Commodore 64 which real...

Re: 456 - Pokémon (gens 1 and 2)

Gen 1 of Pokemon marked a very special gaming milestone for me as it was my first JRPG that I have ever played. It was from this that I got introduced to turn based battling, party management, item hoarding and the importance of character stats. And what an introduction! I was always a sucker for co...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Has anyone suggested the Rocket Knight/Sparkster series yet? The 16 bit era was full of generic to rubbish me too Sonic ripoff platforming mascots but these games really stood out as been some of the true highlights of the genre for that era. Really fun titles with cute character designs and a lot o...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Been hopping between cabaret club management in Yakuza Kiwami 2 and B sides in Celeste . Both very different but satisfyingly addictive at the same time. Will crack onto the main story in Yakuza once I have all my platinum hostesses at max level, so glad this minigame is back. Less enjoyable was the...

Re: Games Completed 2021

January 30: Celeste

Reached the summit today so it is technically finished but still not fully done with this. Going to try and conquer the B sides which are kicking my arse at the moment but I am slowly making progress. Really nice start to the year with this one, hard as nails but fair.

Celeste

I was only semi-aware of Celeste but paid it no real attention since its release. I mean indie 2D platformers are common as muck these days and the general aesthetic was not enough to grab my attention. But when I heard the podcast was covering it and it being a short little indie game I decided why...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I have played lots of good stuff over Christmas, definitely made up for the bad/mediocre Sonic stuff I was trying out before. One thing I have really been enjoying is that a lot of demos now allow you to save your progress so that you can just continue from where you left off if you buy the full gam...
