Dimensions recaptures enough of Geometry Wars' thrills to stand as the best new dual-joystick shooter in quite a while.
The little mushroom man finally gets his name on the marquee, and the result is a charming, unique, and puzzle-heavy adventure.
Nintendo's all-stars assemble once again, resulting in one of the best reasons to own a Wii U (and eight GameCube controllers).
Yoshi's New Island, South Park, Titanfall, and a lil' Dark Souls II round out a discussion of the week's news.
Enjoying this show!
Fantastic another nice and prompt upload of the podcast. Wonderful.
Patrick, buy a ControllerMAX. I've been using a PS4 controller on my PS3, 360, and PC. IT'S WONDERFUL. No lag. Programmable if you want to move the buttons around.
I would love to listen to these, but the volume changes seem to be all over the place basically all the time.
I would really appreciate some proper audio leveling in the future.
By the way I'm one of the people who still likes Yoshi Story and I must say I have replayed it recently and had fun doing so. That said I've done the same with Glover which is awful so I dunno.
I do think there's a lot of merit to what Yoshi's Story does. Where Yoshi's Island is just a mediocre platformer with a poorly implemented collectathon on top of it Yoshi's Story is an amazing hybrid of a mediocre platformer and a collectathon where the two disparate parts actually complement each other. You have open non linear levels put into a branching campaign structure. You can also try to collect melons for higher scores. Or replay the two Tower levels 1-4 and 3-2 over and over again because they're the best levels.
I don't think you can go back to it and even then it was more of a novelty, one of the less good games you played between Rare releases that you knew wasn't as good as Rare's work but was worth playing regardless. I think that makes it better than Yoshi's Island though which is a mediocre game with no merits.
I assume Patrick's exploits with Lord Gamblor are basically what This Is Vegas would've been like.
Came here specifically to hear the musical intro.
You can find the woodland critters in the lost forest. There's an invitation to a blood orgy on the floor of Stan's room that includes directions through the forest. Then you can friend them all on Facebook, of course.
I listen to this in the shower!
I think what I like about this show is how small and focussed it is without being rigid. I love the Bombcast, but the two guys chatting about games is a more relaxing listen sometimes. Keep it up.
