Finally, we can watch television on our televisions.
In this edition of Push Start to Continue the boys don’t spend any time at all talking about the newly announced Xbox One and Microsoft’s “One Device to Rule Them All!” market strategy…wait, that’s actually the opposite of what happens here.
SELECT YOUR CHARACTER!
So, you’ve picked your game and are ready to jump in the ring, but you don’t know where to start. Thankfully, this problem can be solved with the simplest of concepts – favoritism. It’s something that we as people naturally do when it comes to anything we enjoy, and fighting games are no different. When it comes to selecting a game to play, the biggest draw is usually something that you personally find interesting. This also goes for the characters you select to play as. In most cases the character you elect to dedicate most of your time into directly ties into your overall enjoyment of the game. So naturally it’s best to go with what you like.
Not only is pizza better with Kinect, it renders all other ordering methods obsolete.
In this edition of Push Start to Continue Jesse talks a bit about the PixlBrew experiment and just a few impressions of his experience with BioShock: Infinite thus far. And many games are discussed, like Star Fox 64 and its rumble pack, Soul Hackers, Professor Layton, Luigi’s Mansion and more! And, of course, we couldn’t help but discuss how pizza delivery is better with Kinect.
Ever wanted to learn how to get good at fighting games? Well here are some tips!
Fighting games can be some of the most intimidating games out there. Whether it was back in the arcades where every victory relied on your hard earned money, or today where playing online unprepared can lead to some embarrassing losses. Though a tough nut to crack, fighting games can also be extremely rewarding.
Wait, what did you say?
This week’s episode of Push Start to Continue is all over the place. Mike finally finishes a bunch of games over the weekend, Jesse succumbs and upgrades to the 3DS XL, they both share thoughts on the next Xbox, SquareEnix’s sales forecast folly, and that new Batman game. Plus Mike gets all lovey on BioShock: Infinite (in a spoiler free fashion) and Jesse reveals his game of the generation.
You might want to keep your eyes on this one...
When it came to Injustice: Gods Among Us, my initial reaction was a resounding “meh”. Don’t get me wrong – I’m actually a huge fan of DC Comics, and fighting games for that matter. A few weeks ago, Injustice was a game that I couldn't care less about. I didn’t like the character designs. I wasn’t sure I wanted to learn a new fighting game. And I definitely thought the stage interactions were extremely gimmicky. However, now as I type this, I couldn’t be more pumped to get my hands on the game and explore its intricacies. So you might ask, “What changed your mind JD?” In a nutshell the answer is this – good marketing.
No, seriously, we're raging over here.
They boys are back this week, and they mean business. Jesse ruffles some feathers early by declaring Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch overhyped (but still good), before professing his undying love for all things Fire Emblem. Then things get a bit ugly, as the boys prognosticate on the future of gaming, which may lead to some small amount of rage and depression.
Putting Square-Enix in their place has never felt so good
On this latest installment of Push Start to Continue, Mike and Jesse discuss Nintendo's latest Nintendo Direct, the ultimate fate of THQ and take a moment to unleash hell on Square-Enix. All that, plus Jesse reveals his recent addiction to Pokemon. It's an episode filled with equal parts joy and wrath, which is fun! Right?
One second, they give out actual awards at the VGAs?!?
We may be a day late, but this episode of Push Start to Continue is certainly not lacking in the dollars and cents. Join Mike and Jesse as they completely ignore the awards given at this year's 10th annual Spike TV Video Game Awards, and talk about the only thing that really matters: the trailers and game announcements. Also discussed is the allure of the Demon's/Dark Souls series, the THQ Bundle, and much, much more.
