PixlTalk Episode 71: Back To Games

We move away from E3 and talk about what we've been playing.

E3 has come and gone and it’s time to focus on what’s really important, the games. This week we have a casual discussion covering what we’ve been playing and what we hope to play in the near future. We also delve off to discuss how 2013 is shaping up to be one of the craziest years ever for game releases, and the ludicrous notion that unfinished games receive awards at E3.

As always we hope you enjoy and let us know what you think in the comments below.

I love the first two Alien movies. J-Bone, did you ever play the Alien's game Alien Trilogy on PS1? I had that game and played it when I was a kid, and I never beat it. It scared the shit out of me because it was really darkly lit, it was hard for me to tell where doors were, and there were face suckers and warrior form zenomorphs tearing me apart the entire way through a level. Scary game, that's for true. The sound of the zenos was terrifying too. The sound clips that played when they attacked were offputting and even the sound when they died was weird. Freaky-deaky. I've never talked with anybody about that game ever since lol, and I've never heard people reference it in gaming communities either. Was I the only kid playing it? It was like Doom with xenomorphs, I imagine people would want to check it out.

My favorite Alien game is actually Alien 3 on SNES. No, not the Genesis version. The SNES version had an awesome Metroid-style layout and some amazing graphics. But I agree with 117...Alien Trilogy was a helluva scary FPS.

My favorite Alien game is...nothing because I've never really played one. I tried the demo for the Aliens vs Predator game that came out a couple years ago but that's it. But I'll reiterate: Isn't it strange how many Alien games have been made? I mean for better or worse, they're a bonafide video game franchise.

Yeah, the Aliens arcade game was pretty awesome, too. It was basically a Final Fight-style beat-'em-up with guns.

Nerds Without Pants Episode 181: Memories are the Greatest Gift

This episode of Nerds Without Pants is coming in late, and I don’t have the energy to do a clever show post or time stamps. I’m sorry; I’ll do better next time. In this episode we talk about some of our favorite memories of game related gifts. We go heavy on Ghost of Tsushima, and we squash the PixlBit beef over Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze.
