Episode #1218 - Adam Wallace returns with a review of one of the most infamous games of all time. Could E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial have been salvaged? Find out when you read Adam's full review of E.T. on the Atari 2600.
Episode #56 - You are getting sleepy. Everything I say is making your drowsy. You can't fight it. Now tell me what you remember, because today we're playing a game that's all about the fragments of your dreams and memories. This is Rememoried, the newest installment in the popular walking simulator genre.
Episode #55 - This is Master Spy, the upcoming stealth platformer from Turbo Gun. It's hitting Steam on September 8 for $9.99, but I want to spend a few minutes going through the first mission and giving you a sneak peak of this action game. It has a cool throwback look that reminds me a lot of TurboGrafx-16 games. Maybe it's just the company name clouding my judgment. Anyway, we'll be posting a full review in a couple of weeks, but here's a small taste of Master Spy.
Episode #920 - With its noir style and shadowy 2D visuals, Calvino Noir is the kind of game that should appeal specifically to me. But the awful gameplay and bad pacing kills the momentum. While the story and setting is compelling, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. Calvino Noir is a huge letdown.
Episode #15 - The Wild West, bounty hunters and ... ninjas? Grab your six shooter and cowboy boots, because we're about to get dirty when we ask the all-important question: Should Capcom reboot Gun.Smoke?
Episode #918 - While not as flashy as Final Fantasy or as original as Skies of Arcadia, this updated re-release is a testament to how much fun a well-crafted turn-based role-playing game can be. Grandia II: Anniversary Edition improves the visuals, adds a new difficulty and offers Japanese voice acting, but fails to put the 15 year old role-playing game into context. Thankfully the writing is compelling enough to warrant playing through this Dreamcast masterpiece.
Episode #919 - A mix of Parodius and WarioWare, Shutshimi is an action-packed shoot-em-up where each level only lasts a few seconds. You never know what you'll see from one stage to the next. Sometimes you'll be upside down, while other times you'll wear a can of beans. While not the deepest shooter to come out in 2015, Shutshimi is bursting with personality and full of intriguing ideas.
Episode #917 - With its calm soundtrack and deliberate pace, RymdResa is not going to appeal to everybody. But I enjoyed the leisurely approach and got sucked into the light role-playing mechanics. It's an endearing adventure that is full of charming touches, and aspiring astronauts will get a kick out of exploring the far reach of the solar system. Just don't run out of resources.
Episode #14 - Albatross, Leila, and the fight against Geldra. Grab your jumping shoes and get ready to fight against international robot terrorism, because today we're asking the question: Should Namco reboot Rolling Thunder?
Episode #54 - Not to start this preview on a controversial note: But I'm not sure I've ever worn a poncho. I've seen them around, but they aren't real common in my Pacific Northwest bubble. I guess I'm more of a jacket kind of guy. My lack of fashion sense is not going to keep me from playing through the first bit of PONCHO, the brand new 2D platformer from Delve Interactive.
Episode #16 - Cyril Lachel returns with a brand new episode of YOLO, the show where you only live once. See how far he can get in Chariot Wars (Steam) without losing a single race.
Episode #15 - Welcome to another episode of YOLO, the show where I only live once. Today we're taking an early look at 20XX, the brand new Mega Man X-inspired action/platformer from indie newcomer Batterystaple Games. If you've been waiting for a Mega Man roguelike, then this may be for you. It's launching on Steam on September 15, but we're going to spend a few minutes playing through the first few randomly generated levels.
