Episode 146: The Great Game Giveaway

Posted on 02/15/2019 at 05:01 PM | Filed Under Feature

Ah, ok. Was afraid my app was getting too old. I wish Sarah Conner went longer, I really enjoyed it. Fringe was amazing, I miss it. It actually went 5 seasons but you probably blocked out those memories...

Episode 146: The Great Game Giveaway

Posted on 02/14/2019 at 04:51 AM | Filed Under Feature

Glad to have you with me on another work night. Not sure what happened but this one didnt pop up on my Doggcatcher App. Hope that was just a small glitch. 

Anyways I hope this new giveaway helps boost numbers. I love this podcast and was genuinely sad when you said you almost called it quits after Angelo left. It is irreplaceable compared to my other podcasts. Keep up the good fight!

I wasn't confused by the Stage Select topic last week. I may have came off wrong but I was trying to say the type of game I'd make. I dont know what type of game Gain Ground fits into but it's hard to describe unlike RPG or Adventure.

The game isnt so much about trying to fight for land. You start with 3 characters and have to try to get each to the, "finish line" at the top of the screen while avoiding/killing enemies. If you get hit you go unconscious, but then you can use the other characters to retrieve them and if you escape they dont die. Alternatively you can just kill all the enemies on screen to finish the level. Along the way each map, if I remember correctly, has a new character to rescue and they will join your team. So you can have 20+ characters with different weapons. I think it's worth a try if you have a Genesis collection laying around somewhere. I can easily see a great sequel be pretty cool with a tad of RPG elements.

You should definitely check out Apex Legends. It's really good and would be my first recommendation for a BR.

You mentioned the Terminator show but you're off. It was called the Sarah Conner Chronicles and I wish it hit 5 seasons. It only had 2 and left on an interesting cliff hanger. Damn you Fox!!!

While not every game has a built in timer, I think you can check the time played on your Xbox Achievements page. It takes a bit of digging but you should find it just fine. I could have sworn PS4 has something similar but I could be wrong. Speaking of that...


Stage Select: Next Gen Features

I think next gen should let us use our old controllers and be completely backwards compatible with this current gen. I'd like more mod support like PC. I know Xbox dabbled in this with Fallout 4 but I don't know if anything else has.

I personally wouldn't mind some kind of upgrade kits. Make it very simple so those who want to avoid PC type maintenance can get by with practically no issue. It should be as easy as changing tapes in a VCR like the N64 Expansion Pack.

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.

This Gen, This Month, Another Year: January 2019

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.

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...
