PB & Jason Issue 49: Featuring Mr. Destructoid

Gaming media mascot characters inside the games they review?!

This week's issue of PB & Jason brings lots of news and lots of opinion!

First up, there's some talk about GoldenEye: Reloaded, the upgraded port of the Wii game inspired by a N64 classic title, which was developed by Rare.

Following that, there's my long-winded perspective on Nintendo's choice to localize Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 rather than it's upgraded version, Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 Professional.

The news opinion segment of PB & Jason concludes with a little bit of talk about StarFox 64 3D and the newest Namco 3DS title, Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions.

In the second half of the podcast, I contrast Ms. 'Splosion Man and Bastion, and eventually move on to an unsettling reality: Ms. 'Splosion Man, a game Destructoid has given a 9.5 on a 10-point scale, features a cameo appearance by Destructoid's mascot, Mr. Destructoid.

Tune in next week, same PB & Jason time, same PB & Jason place!

Final Fantasy V Review Rewind

There are several similarities between Final Fantasy V and its younger sibling, Final Fantasy III. Chiefly of which, both games stayed exclusively in Japan well after the series moved on to the PlayStation in the mid-90s. For a time, Square Enix (formally SquareSoft) was uncertain if western audiences would grasp the deeper gameplay mechanics that drove character growth. But after the global success of Final Fantasy VII, they decided it was time to start bridging the gap in sequels in the US lineup. As a result, Final Fantasy V was the first to be released as part of the Final Fantasy Anthology compilation on the PlayStation in 1999.
