Fuck, I'm past the 4th boss in this game so I thought I'd be safe from seeing anything I hadn't gotten to yet, but somehow I completely missed whatever area Ben's in.

The ways the paths in this game branch is so much harder to follow than the other games for me, I feel like I'm constantly having to go back and comb through each area for alternate routes because I'm not used to, y'know, being able to jump in these games.

I love how excited Ben gets when he learns there's no stamina meter as if that means you won't have to play at the pace FromSoft games expect from you anyway.

A big turning point for me in these games was realizing that, yes, the stamina meter is partly there to limit the number of actions you can take, but it's also meant to help teach you that you need to slow down and learn the attack patterns of enemies and not just spam attacks hoping you kill them before they take the next swing. And that definitely seems like the way you need to play this game too, even without a stamina bar.

I'm going to have to stop watching this series at work because I can barely keep myself from screaming at my computer monitor every time Vinny lets Dan get the power ups first.

Please, for the love of Zeus, stop the madness Vinny.

Thank you for your service, Anime Experts! I hope many more anime journeys await, but even if not, this has been my most looked forward to podcast the past year.

I really, really hope they do get around to watching some of those filler episodes. Jeff saying the six months later episode might be his favorite in the whole series made me sad they missed out on so much of the other extremely dumb and fun but ultimately pointless one-off episodes in the original.

Also really hope they at least watch the Dragon Ball Super movies, if only to get to Broly because it has some of the best character moments and almost certainly the best animated fights in all of Dragon Ball. Seriously, it's so good.

Sounds like an alternate review for this game could go something like...

Have you played:

  • Marvel's Spider-Man
  • Saint's Row 4 / Gat Outta Hell
  • Batman: Arkham City / Arkham Knight
  • LotR: Shadow of Mordor / Shadow of War
  • Infamous 1 / 2 / Second Son

Done with all those and still looking for more open world superhero action? Then maybe try out Crackdown 3.

And those are just the open world super powers games I could think of off the top of my head.

TEN YEARS AGO!

Also holy shit I just realized right at the end Jeff says "Okay let's play Street Fighter", meaning Street Fighter 4, which wasn't even out yet.

I love people complaining about Jeff and Dan talk about Fast & Furious for a few minutes as if y'all don't listen to them ramble about whatever they feel like for 3+ hours every week on other podcasts. C'mon people, have some self awareness. They're in what is easily the worst part of the show, let 'em enjoy themselves a bit.

I have absolutely no nostalgia for Flashback or any of the other games Vinny struggled to name at the start of the video, but this is one of those games that I will play for the styyyyyyle value alone. Hopefully they put it out on Switch/PS4 at some point.

Great start to the year for games!
