The NES was really the first gaming system I encountered, and also the one that hooked me hard.

I hope he comes back to it. I really liked Fez.
But man, even if some of the stuff he says invites all the hate, man there's a lot of it. I was really surprised to see that basically all the comments on the Polytron page announcing the cancellation of Fez II were along the lines of "Good. Fez sucks/Phil Fish is a [insert whatever insult here]."
If you don't have the mindset to deal with all that then I can really see how damaging that must be. I mean, I probably wouldn't come back.
I come in to post another bombcast that it's not, and I find this.
You are a goddamn hero, and you were right, my memory was just totally off. That's not at all where I would have been looking around. Thanks Duder.
@cannonballbam Just to confirm, this is absolutely a 21 and up event right? This doesn't effect me or my guest, but I'd hate for people to come all the way out and get turned away.
Most of these recommendations are for PS2. I don't know what that says about the state of robot games.
Robot Alchemic Drive definitely nails the large, hulking mech feel. Sandlot's prior game, Remote Control Dandy, for the original Playstation, is also pretty awesome and in-depth. I don't know if that came out in the US. The EDF games are awesome (at least the first two, which were the Sandlot developed games), but you'll be fighting the giant, lumbering mechs, you don't get to control them.
MS Gundam: Federation vs Zeon, the first game in the Gundam Vs Gundam series and still the best one, got an English release and shouldn't be too hard to find.
As long as we're talking imports, any games in the A.C.E. series should fulfill that itch. They also should be relatively cheap and easy to come by.
I'd recommend ZOE 2 over anything else, even if you haven't played 1 (or even if you've played 1...)
Haha, thanks. I still think the 90's was like, a decade ago at most.
I have a feeling that the episode was after that post, because I remember thinking when I heard it that they had touched on the issue a couple times in the past, but this specific question asked them to spell it out clearly. It's totally possible that that mental timeline is completely off though.
I appreciate everyone's help in the matter. I feel like it was in close proximity to a bombcast where they were also talking about old retro games in general, but that might be completely my imagination. At any rate, right now I'm listening to the October 2012 bombcast that has the picture of the pile of famicom games (the Raid episode).
In the meantime, I guess I'll keep updating with which podcast it isn't. I don't have the heart to skip around; once I start up a bombcast I'm compelled to listen to the whole thing.
The 7-17-12 podcast, in which CPS2 boards and hummingbird masks are discussed, is not the episode I am looking for.
Listen to a recent bombcast recently? Did they not talk about Neo Geo games? Feel free to let me know about that too. It'll make looking a little easier.
