Episode 174: We Regret Everything


Posted on 04/23/2020 at 07:23 PM | Filed Under Feature

Awesome podcast. Got to admit, I'm pretty stoked when I see 3+ hours for the episode. 

Last week I got really into acoustic versions of my favorite videogame music so this Stage Select comes at a perfect time. 

 

Stage Select: Happy Songs

Frogs Theme: Chrono Trigger 

This song is just epic nostalgic goodness. Instant classic and the reason I taught myself how to whistle. The song perfectly captures that heroic feeling and few characters are more deserving than Frog. Plus it takes me back to that moment he slices a damn mountain in half. This song always puts me in a good mood

 

Chrono Cross: Time's Scar 

There could be nothing else than this song for my number one. I still remember that opening poem perfectly. I remember all the feels I got watching that opening video. I still remember hearing this song during the commercial. Combine that with the awesome cutscenes they showed and I was in! I used my birthday money to buy it and didnt own a Playstation but was going to get a PS2 for Christmas. No other song from games stirs up my nostalgia and memory quite like this one.

 

Cage Match: TMNT obviously! I loved the Simpsons but a jump rope, vacuum cleaner, skateboard, and fists dont hold a candle to the Turtles weapons. Also this game came from Pizza Hut so that's another win.

Episode 173: Become Cow


Posted on 04/17/2020 at 02:21 PM | Filed Under Feature

Been so busy lately but wanted to get my comment in. You guys are doing a great job and I really appreciate you guys making this podcast. It really makes my day when I have a podcast to look forward to when I work. Same goes for Clickbait. 

Stage Select: 

3. Not getting an SNES: I was given a Sega when I was around 5. I never ventured into SNES but I wish I had. I have always taken good care of my stuff so still have all my Genesis games. I wish I had a collection of amazing SNES games in my collection also. That said I loved my Sega days and am glad I had one.

2. Over Buying: I'm extremely guilty of buying more games than I'll ever play. I have gotten better as I get older in that I dont buy as many games Day 1 unless I KNOW I will play them. The others I get I wait for sales on. But I've learned that if I don't buy it Day 1 then it probably means I dont really, really want to play it and it sits there for months, then years, then maybe I pop it in for 1 day and never again. It's nice having a decent collection but I need to stop buying things just because they are less than $10.

1. Not taking pictures in Minecraft: I'm not a photo mode person but I regret not taking pictures in Minecraft. I made an underground bunker after months of playing. I had never played Minecraft but was getting hooked. My tiny bed and workshop in a cave became a bonafide bunker that would make any crazy doom prepper satisfied. It isnt amazing compared to some of those Minecraft experts but I'm still extremely proud of what I accomplished. I wish I had catalogued the transition along the way so I could remember exactly where I started and look back at each step along the way. 

 

Cage Match: I've never played XCOM but its always seemed intriguing. I'm pretty sure that Aloy would have a hard time facing thousands of aliens. Then she's also fighting robot dinosaurs. Sure she has an awesome array of weapons but that don't impress them much since they got probably got nukes. Winner Captain of the XCOM force Shania Twain!

Episode 172: Wrestling with Covid-19

Awesome long episode. Many good laughs is what I need. Really interesting Stage Select this week. I think I have some good answers. 

I also thought of a perfect way for Animal Crossing to legit beat Doom guy. He charges head first everywhere. All the residents need to do is drop pitfalls everywhere. As he keeps falling, Nook can make his pitch to stay. Still cant believe that upset lol.

 

Stage Select: Top 3 Games I've Never Played

3. Skyrim: I still dont know how I've never played this. I think it's most likely due to the close release with Dark Souls which became one of my favorite games ever. Skyrim makes the list for epic dragon battles, awesome magic attacks and the insane exploration. I actually bought it recently but havent played it yet so I can still correct this mistake.

2. Final Fantasy 14: This game seems epic and everything I've heard makes me want to play it so much more. The story is supposed to be amazing and I've always been really intrigued to play an MMO but just never have. This makes the list for amazing music, story and being an MMO. Another title I currently own and will definitely play soon.

1. Zangeki No Reginleiv: If I'm correct this is loosely translated to Norse Defense Force. This was a game for the original Wii that only released in Japan. It was supposed to be a melee take on the Earth Defense Force gameplay where you swing swords, axes, and other melee weapons to take down giant enemies. I always wanted this to come stateside but it never did. Considering it was on Wii probably means it wouldn't hold up well and may have just outright sucked but I stand by my enthusiasm and proclaim I would love it like I do the EDF series. Unfortunately, I dont own this and probably never will.

 

Cage Match

Galaga and it's not even close. Centipedes are bugs, Galagas are... well I dont even know what is the Galaga. Is it the ship? The enemies race? The space army? Either way giant ships with guns beat bugs. Unless we are talking Starship Troopers because those bugs that shoot plasma out their ass took out space ships easy. But centipedes dont seem to shoot plasma out their ass so it has to go Galaga.

Episode 171: Leap Year Business

That was some good podcasting. I liked the videogame companies idea since it something I tend to forget all about. Nice tattoo Julian. I didnt know it was yours until you mentioned it. 

Glad that Stardew Valley is a hit. I still need to check it out. If Animal Crossing wasnt out so soon I would have tried it. I haven't tried the FF7 demo because I'm going to borrow the game from my friend when he's done. 

I cant believe I didn't think of Umbrella either. Great choice. This Stage Select should be interesting. 

 

Stage Select: I'd go for a nice mix of the old arcade one where moves were over the top but with the controls of the golden era N64 games like No Mercy. Imagine piledrivers where they can fly high like when someone in NBA Jam is on Fire. 

Definitely need a solid create a character mode. There must be a way to go into the back rooms by going up the ramp. Tons of crazy ass weapons. Wrestlers from all eras and companies would be fun. Also throw in some crazy off the wall ones kind of like how WCW/NWO Revenge did. 

All the match types you can think of also including ones that have been lost to time like Coffin Matches, Fire Matches, and such. They also need to add that water arena that WCW would use every so often. 

 

Cage Match: Doom guy blows the head off a demon and is on his way back to Earth. He is ready to tear up some demons but finds himself in a quaint little village on some island. Here he is greeted by a nice raccoon and friendly dog. 

The raccoon offers a home with no interest to worry about. He could theoretically never make a single payment and keep his tiny quaint home if he wanted. Doom guy is overwhelmed by his generosity and cries. The kind yellow dog hugs him and tells him that whatever worries he had before cant hurt him anymore. He enjoys a nice serenade from the dog playing guitar and eats a piece of fruit that is freshly plucked from the tree. Doom guy is happy and will live a quiet life with new friends. 

Winner: Both!!!

Episode 170: Decades in the Sun


Posted on 02/27/2020 at 10:57 AM | Filed Under Feature

It's awesome that Megan made a theme song for NWP, excellent job. I really enjoyed the anime talk especially because I'm on season 3 of MHA right now. It's been really good. Definitely keep us updated on anime when you do give them a shot. I'll have to check out the Max Defense anime, I saw that too and was wondering what the hell it was. 

I cant believe Justin finishes games at that pace. Its insane! He replayed the whole Witcher and did the DLC! I cant even imagine doing that alone in less than 3 months. He can definitely finish a souls game in no time. 

Cool Stage Select idea, I had a bit of a difficult time thinking of more than my favorite but I think I got some good ones. 

 

Stage Select:

3. Warioware Inc.: How could you not love the company behind all those crazy minigames. Then Wario as a boss probably means that you could be completely incompetent and still have a job. It's almost like my job now! He seems like he runs a crazy but altogether fun company.

2. The Carrington Institute: This is company responsible for the laptop gun in Perfect Dark. That alone deserves a great spot on here. Its basically the videogame version of James Bonds MI6. So tons of crazy fun gadgets and a license to kill. Seems like a solid place to work.

1. Aperture Science: Ok so while this is definitely my favorite company in videogames, its probably the absolute last place I'd want to work. Let's just say that Cave Johnson isnt shy about doing human trials on whoever he finds himself around.

Episode 169: Coffee Talkin' About Robot Dinos


Posted on 02/19/2020 at 01:49 PM | Filed Under Feature

So glad hiatus is over and were back for Stage Select! Top of the decade is tough but I'll give it a shot. 

 

Stage Select:

3. Mass Effect 2: This was an amazing sequel to an amazing game. It delivered in pretty much all ways I wanted. I did miss some of the RPG mechanics of the original but outside of that I feel this one was near perfection  Most notably is I finally got to confess my love for Tali, who may be my favorite videogame character ever. Sure I didn't get the beloved Fem Shep voice actor but it was worth it to finish the game with Tali romantically by my side.

2. Divinity Original Sin 2: Damn was this sequel another amazing leap past the original. Although I liked the first one, it didn't grab me. This one pulled me in deep and I'm constantly thinking about this game. The RPG battle mechanics is like D&D come to life. The many ways to play and handle each situation is so interesting. If I'm correct you can kill everyone in this game and it'll find a way to continue on. 

1. Dark Souls 2: I know this may be blasphemy to Souls fans since many look down on this sequel but I absolutely loved it. I cant necessarily say it's better than the original but I just love it more. I've replayed it more times than the others and always had a blast. When it finally rereleased on this gen, it mixed things up a bit and felt like the first time I played Ocarina of Time: Master Quest. It took a favorite game I was intimately familiar with and made it feel a bit new. That was the cherry on top for replaying my favorite game of this decade.

My favorite game I played this year is Spider-Man for sure but keeping it in 2019 I'll have to go Control.

Great show guys. So glad to have Angelo jump back for a show but everyone did great. I recall the few who actually did play Hob really enjoying it. One of the podcasts I listen to raved about it but I just never went out to buy it. Should definitely check it out. 

Thanks for the heads up on Horrified John. I've been really trying to get my daughter into more advanced boardgames and she LOVES coop games. Definitely checking it out.

Really enjoying the spoiler cast sp far. Didnt even come close to finishing yet but I'm interested in what you both have to say. Got to say that Rule 34 doesnt care about whether or not someone's into anything...

Episode 164: Creationists


Posted on 11/13/2019 at 02:02 AM | Filed Under Feature

I'm with you,  theres plenty of game I like way more than most but games that are mostly hated is hard to find. I typically play games that are critically acclaimed due to all my podcasts breaking them down so I know what I'm getting into.
