Episode 213: Pocky and Rocky with Becky

Ever wonder what ancient tanuki got up to?  Apparently, the answer is "hang out with adorable priestesses and learn shinto demon banishing techniques".  Also, destroy a lot of paper in pursuit of those two hobbies.  Thankfully, this game is true enough to its cutesy aesthetic that things never get to rocky, so you could probably be nomming some pocky while you're playing.  Also, something about Becky.

Episode 209: Harvest Moon 64

Sometimes, you just need to kick back and let the turnips grow.  Specifically, when you have no other crops or animals, and have really exhausted all the stuff to do around town.  There's always the bar, though, not to mention a pile of fun townsfolk to hang out with.  Look into your heart... become the legendary philanderer farmer you were meant to be!

Episode 69: Robocowboys, Yeehaw! [Wild Guns]

Like every good sci-fi story that takes a look at colonizing other planets (especially dust ol' Mars), the first thing society does is revert back to Old West style land grabs, claim jumpers, and space-rail barons. When the rich decide to use their automated army and a horde of goons to oppress the poor spaceminers, though, it's up to two spacegunslinging space cowboys to take down the entire army armed with nothing but ion lassos and their inexplicably modular guns. Also, some cleavage doesn't hurt.

See you next time, Space Download.

(01:00) Last Time, your FTL podcast.

(03:00) Semi-spoiler: Zach's thoughts on SC2's story.

(04:10) Crusader Kings II is an awesome game for people who don't afraid of spies!  Also, it has a Game of Thrones mod.  I'm sad there are no Oberon/Oberyn mashups.

(09:30) Strike Vector: only vaguely similar to FreeSpace 2, and way harder.

(11:00) Not quite the shipping Geremy was talking about, but I will accept Sailor Venus fighting the Green Ranger to the death on a Street Fighter III stage.  This video is so oddly specific, I have no idea how it exists.  Thanks, M.U.G.E.N.!

(11:30) DEFCON is pretty great, if simple, though it might be Tyler's lack of skill at RTS speaking here.

(14:30) Pot jokes!

(15:00) Talkin' about our LCS league.

(17:30) A rundown of the basic mechanics of Wild Guns.  Points do stuff (100,000 is another life).  Annie loves hitting on the dudes.

(24:00) Apparently, this game is just Cowboy Bebop.  Obviously.

(32:00) Final thoughts: worth a play if it's ever on sale for under $5.

Next time on Last Time, Shock Troopers!

Suit up!,,,

(34:00) Feedback is really important, and this game lacks it a bit.

Episode 3: Farming Under the Light of a Harvest Moon [Harvest Moon]

You ever get the feeling you'd be better off growing potatoes and corn on you grandfather's abandoned farm to become a millionaire?  No?  Well, in case you have, you can live out that dream in Harvest Moon, everyone's favorite farming/dating/life simulator!  This seems to be a game that everyone has heard of, but few have actually played.  Is it worth trying?  Give us a listen and find out!
