Giant Bombcast 02/17/2015

After a weekend honoring our founding fathers, we're back with the straight dope on Evolve, Tekken vs. Soul Calibur, sidewalk-poop-as-entertainment, the game of the (last) generation, 40 years of SNL, the trials and tribulations of Peter Molyneux, and our best pitches for the Gex reboot.

The Giant Bombcast is the world's most beloved video game podcast, and now it's available in video form.

Tekken and Soul Calibur are just so different in my opinion. I prefer Soul Calibur for the technical aspects, and Tekken for just good ol' fashioned brawling.

I loved Gex 64 more than any person really should when I was a kid.

It's strange to think that in 2015 Cracked is more relevant than Mad

I bought Gex for PS1 a few months ago, after having the demo for PC since I was, like, six.

Had I waited 30 minutes before starting my homework I could have listened to the bombcast while doing it.

Good news Jeff, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax (coming to the US) has Akira as an unlockable character. This will be the last time you ever get to play as a Virtua Fighter character in a fighting game.

I find that Bot matches are the best way to unlock characters in Evolve. You can focus on what you need to do without fucking over your online team.

I think there really needs to be a voice to call out Jeff's hate/bullshit again.

Soul Calibur was good because it was good. I agree that each sequel gets weaker. But don't then proceed to try to suggest it's perceived as better than it actually is by linking it to the party game / dorm / bro factor. I like Soul Calibur just as any other fighting game; there was no dorm room GoldenEye bro-ness that colored my opinion.

There really have been some painfully bad examples of bad mastering.

PSA: Phantom Dust has gone to MS Limbo. The studio that was working on it, no longer is working on it.

Somebody nixed the project as it was, but the people at MS say they're still working on it.

Tl;dr MS is pulling a Last Guardian on the Phantom Dust.
