I dunno... Laura Croft raids some tombs? I'm very tired, please just listen to the episode.
Life is strange. One day you’re just a normal kid, going to school, and the next, you’re the chosen one using your psychic powers to defeat an unknowable Lovecraftian being with friends you never met while your annoying neighbor kid is stealing your helicopter. And before you know it, you’re a robot fighting bionic krakens just to get a cool baseball bat. And then you’re listening to a podcast about Earthbound.
Devils Never Cry! That’s what we learned at the end of Devil May Cry 1, but apparently, between that game and this one, Dante also decided that Devils should never emote. No sarcasm, no quips, no nothing. Also, if you’re a Devil, combat should be super easy and boring and your upgrade tree should be simple and number based. Thank God Devil May Cry 3 is a prequel.
Riddle me this Podcast Listener! What is the game that Geremy has been least looking forward to adding to the LTOVG game list since he first introduced the idea 160 episodes ago? Tune in this week to find out! (It’s Tetris) Also, a puzzle game a day keeps the doctor away.
We go back to where it all began. Before we had to construct additional pylons, we had to build more farms. Before we had to mine more minerals, more gold was required. Before we could make a good RTS, we had to make Warcraft: Orcs and Humans.
Before there was Call of Duty every year, there was Mega Man every year, the shooter of the late 80s/early 90s. What new, exciting Mans will the Blue Bomber face this time? What face will Zach make when he hears about the weakness chart? And who could possibly be behind the wave of robot related crime this year? Listen to find out!
Did you ever went fast? Did you ever went so fast that you created a kind of bad game with awful level design that doesn’t actually let you go fast at all? Did you ever went so fast you met an echidna who was kind of a jerk and you felt should really be a playable character for some reason? Did you ever went so fast you started to realize maybe Sonic was never good at all and Sonic 2 was just a huge fluke? In this weeks episode, we went fast.
Finally, after what feels like far too long, we’re at the good part! One of the best fight scenes of the series so far, Athrun and Kira acting like they calmly know the future, and the first of many deaths, the series takes a major turn here.
This week, we just need to relax a little. And what could be more relaxing than waking up at the crack of dawn, choosing your lure, going out on the boat, and casting your line, waiting, just waiting, for that FISH!!!!!!!!!? It’s Sega Bass Fishing.
What’s your favorite ninja weapon? The classic sword? The deadly sai? The banned in England nunchucks? Or perhaps the bow staff with its incredible reach? All of these pail in comparison to the ninja answer to the Belmont’s whip: The Kunai with Chain. Learn all about it in this episode!
A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away… is a phrase that might get us in trouble with Disney. And since we don’t want to mess with the mouse, this game takes place in the future. Where arcades are popular, and controls are confusing, and no one can find the button to fire the missiles. Who will survive? Listen to find out.
It was a dark, rainy night, the dim glow of the street lamp the only bit of white pushing back against the black outside my office. That’s when this game walked in. With bullet time as far as the eye could see and comic book cut scenes for days. We played it, then recorded this podcast.
In what I think is one of our best episodes ever, we talk about that weird time that Square and Disney thought a crossover between Final Fantasy and…. all of Disney made sense. Cloud vs Hercules. Squal vs Peter Pan. Moogles vs. Pooh. None of these will be answered.
Hello everyone, Kevin recently asked about anyone having watched Gen:lock the new show from the guys over at Rooster Teeth and I figured it would be fun to write up a full review of the first episode. I'm not planning on doing this for the rest of the series like our Gundam podcast or any other shows at the moment. If there is a demand I may consider doing more reviews like this one.
Want to find out all about the Adventures of Lolo? Maybe listen to some other video game podcast. Want to learn about the intricacies of Greek myth while three people try desperately to talk about anything else? This episode is just for you!
Do you know those people who get grumpy if they don’t get their coffee in the morning? Well, some nations get grumpy if they don’t have all the magical stones that keep the realm in balance in the morning. What can you do to protect your home from such invading neighbors after they mysteriously lose all sense of reason, promote a bunch of jerks to hunt after you, and engage in a guerilla war with your brother? The only way to find out is to listen!
It's our shortest episode so far, but we're just saving our budget for when the show picks up next week! This week, we get to find out the answers to a number of questions, like what cool video games the Earth Forces play, and how many haros you should bring to a date, so don't miss it!
Here’s a sentence that only makes sense in the year 2002. “Wouldn’t it be better if the NSA had highly trained stealth operatives they could dispatch with little oversight”? If they did, only the best aging military veterans would be selected. They’d have to climb on pipes, and no when they’re in light, and have thigh muscles so strong they could support their entire body weight with them. If you think you have what it takes, give this episode a listen.
War. War never changes. You’re always just flying around in your single aircraft, you against an entire invading enemy force. Maybe they’re aliens? They’re probably aliens. Your only allies are two little drones by your side. Not even an imperiled frog or cocky falcon to get your back. Its just you against all of space, in Super Earth Defense Force.
When you have a dirty job, you can’t just use your real name like some shmuck. You need a code name! Like Batman, or Summer, or 007… or 47. Now you might think those last two are numbers, but what about when you spell them out? Find out in our latest episode, which may or may not actually have anything to do with codenames or numbers.
