Bought Some, Found Some


Posted on 11/03/2022 at 08:28 PM | Filed Under Blogs

I remember the Tapwave Zodiac. Tried positioning itself as just as much a multimedia machine (PDA, video, music, etc) as much as a game console to carve a niche over the DS/PSP. Problem was they targeted it almost entirely to adults (I don't remember ever seeing one or it's games as a kid), but the form factor was made for smaller hands. Well that and it just didn't get much support for games. Doom 2, Tony Hawk, a port of Tomb Raider and that's about it.

Stuff to look forward to

Nice. I'm happy with Splatoon 3 right now and am excited for Bayonetta, Sonic, Mario+Rabbids, Callisto Protocol, and especially Pokemon to round out the year. Not sure what the release schedule is like next year but I'm stoked for Zelda and Starfield.

BaD #6: 5 PS5 games I want to play the most


Posted on 02/07/2022 at 05:25 PM | Filed Under Blogs

My favorite PS5 game right now is Ratchet and Clank, which is just more Ratchet but I love that series so it's good enough for me! Deathloop and Astro-Bot were pretty good too. This year I'm sure I'll pick up Horizon (though I refuse to spend more than $60 on it) and MLB The Show. I couldn't resist when I saw Ohtani's steel book cover

My top games of 2021

My GOTY is right now a tie between Halo Infinite and Metroid Dread. After that, Ratchet and Clank, Psychonauts 2, and Deathloop. Was a pretty good year for games with me too. Felt the indie scene could have been better though, some good games but nothing on par with Hades, Celeste or Dead Cells.

I still haven't played a Ys game. I hear they're good and look neat just looks like one giant rabbit hole to delve into and I barely have enough time for the games I'm playing.

Metroid Dread is my GOTY though Halo Infinite could pass it by the end of the year. Between the open world campaign and how much the MP is bringing back the glory days with my buddies I'm very happy with it. Honorable mentions would be Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart, Psychonauts 2, Deathloop, and yes, New Pokémon Snap.

 

I really need to get back to Ace Attorney.

Episode 212: The Coolest Buttons to Button


Posted on 11/19/2021 at 07:54 PM | Filed Under Feature

Stage Select:

3. Illium (Mass Effect)- I choose this one because it's the only planet that doesnt get completely screwed over in Mass Effect 3. Sure, corporate corruption is out of control but I do a good job of keeping my head low. I'm willing to accept that risk if it means I can live in that universe.

2. Pokémon- This universe has a lot of horrifying implications, from criminal organizations only stopped by a random twelve year old to a random animal draining my soul. But I've had a dog before. He was a little shit even though I loved him. So that I could capture a dog, he would immediately obey all my commands, AND can shoot fire, electricity, etc at my enemies makes me instantly want to live in this universe.

1. Persona 5- Look, we're all aware of the problems of our reality. NOTHING in all of fiction is more liberating than the idea that I can force all the people screwing over the universe to see the horrible things they're doing for what they are and understand the weight and guilt associated with them. 

Cage Match

Veronica would just slap the entire FFXV party until they did everything she says. DQXI wins.

Episode 209: Nerd Saturday Morning

Stage Select

3. Darth Sion (Kotor 2): It was one thing when I saw a shirtless Sith lord who looks he's made of charcoal hunting me down as I watch recordings of him stalking the crew of a Republic warship, murder them one by one. It was another when I discovered he can't die unless he chooses to. But the second I heard Sion speak solidified him as one of the freakiest villains ever.

2. The Joker (Batman Arkham Knight): The Joker is usually a scary villain when you think of the implications but Arkham Knight took him to the next level. He filled the entire game with dread, knowing that soon his blood will allow him to take control of Batman. Knowing that you'll be worse than dead, a prisoner in your own mind to the most dangerous person imaginable with all those tools and gadgets Batman knows for is as scary a thing I can imagine.

1. Mimikyu (Pokémon Sun/Moon): The hardest part of this list was putting entries besides Ghost type Pokémon. Between candles that light their flame by sucking souls out of people so slowly they don't even notice to a sarcophagus that grabs people, eats them and turns their remains into mummies. The one that freaks me out the most is Mimikyu, a ghost that wears a Pikachu costume because it wants to be loved like Pikachu. So much that no one has seen what it actually looks like and lived. I don't know if it's because it attacks them or what it looks like horrifies them. All I know is it has a super powerful attack called Let's Snuggle Forever where it grows super big, traps the other Pokémon under its costume, does a lot of damage and freaks me the fuck out.

Cage Match

As much as I love Resident Evil 4, Dead Space 2 wins this one. Leon Kennedy can go down from something as simple as an old villager shaking him. Isaac Clark only does when things literally tear off his limbs and head or blow him up into a million pieces. It's just not a fair fight.

Episode 208: We Sank Your Battleship

Stage Select

3. Crash Bandicoot- As we all know I love this character and would love to see him get into Looney Toons esque shenanigans each week. He's got enough friends and villains that a few seasons bare minimum can work with some fun slapstick.

2. Sly Cooper- My pick for a more serialized show, Sly 2-4 had a formula that would translate well where Sly and his gang would complete a series a missions before setting up a heist to rob a villain. I think doing each heist in 3-4 episode arcs would make for a really fun show.

1. Mass Effect- First off, I know this is M rated but an R rating never stopped Robocop and The Toxic Avenger from getting Saturday morning cartoons. Second, Mass Effect 2 has a pitch for a kids show/cartoon in the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC. The Shadow Broker has dossiers on all of your party members and Mordin's reveals that in addition to his STG work, he's the Salarian equivalent of Bill Nye with his own show where he teaches science to children. I would watch the hell out of The Very Model of a Scientist Salarian conduct crazy experiments and sing Gilbert and Sullivan to teach science.

Cage Match

Primal Rage comes out sweating, barely able to breathe with a giant beer belly. The crowd is immediately disappointed and worried for how it will fair against anyone, even Bloody Roar. But everyone is left waiting until reminded that Bloody Roar is owned by Konami who won't let it out to play. Primal Rage wins

Episode 207: This Episode Needs No Introduction

Stage Select

1. If you were a Mass Effect alien race, which one do you think you'd fit into the best and worst?

2. If you were to make a Muppet version of an R rated movie which would it be and which human actors would stay? 

3. What is your beer of choice?

Cage Match:

Tetris blocks start pouring down on Skyrim. It takes a very long time for them to do damage because of the enorm size of the region but towns and villages eventually start getting hit. Then the blocks stop and people look up in the sky and see that they're trapped by the glitches. The player then starts a new game and uninstalls the Tetris mod. Skyrim wins.
