Episode 145: The Best of the Longest Year Ever

Posted on 02/02/2019 at 03:47 PM | Filed Under Feature

Great return guys. Glad to have NWP back. It was there for me on those record breaking winter nights at work. Honestly helped pass the time out there. 

Stage Select: Retro Indie

I'm going to keep it within reason. I would love a retro remake of Gain Ground. I would definitely add more characters and weapons. I also would go rogue like with it and randomize the levels after you finish the initial campaign. There would also be randomized heroes to find, bigger and better bosses. Up to 4 player coop also.

Its definitely a game you want to play when you have a solid amount of time. Maybe before the November rush.

I bought this on PS2 when it first released. I remember being a Babbages employee and buying it on a whim. I also bought a dozen other games between my PS2/GC/XB so I never got around to even popping it in. I'm glad I got a chance to retry it with a nice graphical update.

Thanks, it's my first review. I was hoping it would turn out ok. Huge thanks to Julian for helping me get there. 

Special: Music That Makes You Go Hmmm

Posted on 01/23/2019 at 09:48 AM | Filed Under Feature

Haha, dont sweat it. Its actually strange to hear stuff normal speed now. I had on Beastcast a day after listening to your podcast and that opening jingle was so damn strange. I was like, "Why did they slow down their intro?" Then I remembered I didnt put the speed back up. I normally listen at 1.4-1.5x but I'll hit 1.8x when I'm behind after a vacation or something. 

Honestly I sometimes wish some of my mid-tier podcasts would change up hosts or just end so I can go back to normal speed. One podcast I really enjoyed lost its main host to cancer. His wife replaced him but I just dont care for her. Nothing against her personally but I dont think she fits. Especially since her husband was so different personality wise. I kind of want to drop it but I really enjoy the other 2 hosts a lot. If the main one I like of those 2 leaves or begins having a 2nd podcast, I'm out. 

Geekbox is another I'm hoping gets back to its golden days. If I didnt like both Ryan's so much I'd be done. I started when they had 4 hosts regularly and Alice Liang occasionally. I really miss Adam Finch and hope hes doing ok after his brothers passing. Even when they still had Justin Haywald it was great. I'm sure some will return next episode for the big 500.

Cant wait to dive into Witcher 3 some day. Despite finishing Divinity Original Sin 2, my friend and I jumped back in. I really love that game. I'm eagerly anticipating a 3rd one if it comes. Maybe let them make the next KOTOR.

Great episode guys. Love your guys music stuff. I even drop the playback speed to normal. 

Damn is Angelo one hell of an audiophile. He got so technical and had so much VG music knowledge that I was extremely impressed. I knew he was the music man but I didn't know the true depths. 

The Witcher picks had me really close to starting it up this weekend. I gave my nephew the original PS4 one I bought years ago and upgraded to the Xbox One X digital GOTY version. I had never even opened that PS4 copy so I'm excited to try it on my X since I finally finished Divinity: Original Sin 2. Coop with my friends was a blast. We're eagerly anticipating a 3rd one if it's coming. 

Overall great episode and so glad to have Angelo back for a bit. (We forgive you for Culdcept Saga Angelo, come back). Also thanks for making me go hunting for a Portrait of Ruin game. Like I need any more backlog...

Episode 143: Accomplished Nerds

Great show guys. Really helped pass the time at work. I thought you all had some great achievements. I can definitely empathize with your love for working at a game store Julian. Babbages was my first job at 16 and it was awesome. I absolutely loved it. I was just working for the holiday season but it was so damn fun. The people were all great and I enjoyed helping customers find games that would interest them or their children.

They wanted to keep me part-time but it was a 25 minute drive and I didnt have a car to get there. My mom took me since it would be temporary but I didnt want to put it on her permanently. I still miss that job. 

I'll second SuperStep and say that the hoarseness wasn't very noticeable as the show continued. Thank you guys for soldiering through it. 

Patrick, I'd love to hear your thoughts on Dark Souls one day. I think all your time on Bloodborne and Nioh especially will help. God of War is no slouch either. I also played the 2nd hardest difficulty. I thought it was normal but I was wrong. It kicked my ass for the first few hours but eventually you get the hang of it. 

I'll be back with my State of the Generation later.

Episode 142: NWP AMA

Posted on 11/28/2018 at 12:00 AM | Filed Under Feature

Very fun episode of NWP. Cant wait for the AMA to return. TyroneSwift was a great addition. I couldn't wait for him to dive into The Quiet Man. I watched the whole Giantbomb playthrough and damn was that rough. The only way its playable is if you get a group to play it for the laughs. I couldn't imagine this game solo. I think I'd take the cash if I had to play Quiet Man on the toilet though... 

I was personally ecstatic for the Giant Nerd Cast. I'll always welcome 4 hours of my favorite podcasts. Also cant wait for GOTY Deliberations. I feel much more invested this time since I started actually watching their series and know them much better. 


Stage Select: Top 3 Gaming Achievements

3. Beating The Souls Series Shieldless: I'm no pro but the fact that I was able to beat the souls series without a shield is one thing I'm proud of. It really helped me actually get good at this game because it forced me to learn how to anticipate attacks and roll. I also didnt rely on parrying at all which is another reason why I'm so proud of this. 

2. Getting the Untouchable Medal in Halo 3: Halo was one series I was great at. It was something I feel like I could have played professionally if I was the type to play 1 game for years.

My favorite moment is also bittersweet. I was jumping back into it after weeks of not playing. I hit a Lone Wolves ranked match (which is everyone for themselves) and completely dominated. I was 5 kills away from winning the match/getting the medal when someone quit and the game had to find a new host. The game continued but it stopped registering my streak. I got the last 5 kills and went 25-0 but didnt get the satisfying announcer to say, "Untouchable." Despite that I knew what I had accomplished and felt invincible.

1. Beating The Witness: The Witness isn't the hardest game I've ever played but it's definitely the most satisfying I've ever completed. Many have compared it to learning a new language and that isn't far off. Taking pen, paper, graph paper, tetris shaped cutouts, pictures, and combining them to solve puzzles was unlike anything I've ever played. I would take puzzles to work and try to solve them for when I'd play next. I'd look around the real world and see puzzles that needed to be solved (The Witness Effect?). I was actually a bit sad to have finished The Witness because I knew I'd never have that experience again. This game isn't for everyone but for those it is for, you will have an unforgettable experience unlike any other in gaming.
