gen_post

This week Fred, Jam, and Derrick from Dead Pixel Live are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Sega Genesis.  The first heavy hitter of the 16-bit generation started as a console for sports games and high quality arcade ports and later became known as the console for edge and violence.  They cover the creation, launch, and span of a console that in six short years gave us a coveted library of memories.

Podcast: Final Fantasy X, X-2, and…XII?

leave a comment »

ff_coll_postThis week we are an ensemble cast with Andy from 42 Level One and Agents of Shieldcast as well as Eli from Knuckleballer Radio joining to discuss the main PS2 iterations of the Final Fantasy Series: X, X-2, and XII.  As with all our FF eps, it’s a broad overview, but the discussion will help you understand what to expect from each iteration and what development changes were made.  With the recent HD remakes of the X titles, you may just be tempted to give these titles a second glance.

Between Mega Man games Inafune and a team from Capcom made a hybrid action/stealth title for the PS2 that re-created solving the murder of Julius Caesar.  It released in February 2005, just one month before God of War, and provided one of the funniest, craziest, and most challenging game clubs we’ve tackled to date.  Join Fred, Jam, and special guest Trees from EZMU as they conquer Shadow of Rome.

Podcast: Silent Evil 2: Resident Hill

with 3 comments

silent_evil_2

This week we are tackling quite possibly the two most popular titles of survival horror: Resident Evil 2 and Silent Hill 2.  Resident Evil 2 was scrapped only a few months before completion and completely redone, resulting in many of the staples that carried the franchise forward and stands as a fan favorite.  Meanwhile Silent Hill 2 waited until the Playstation 2 hit the market and with one of the creepiest atmospheres of all times redefined what horror gaming could be.  We openly discuss the notable aspects of both.

Podcast: GBA Forever

This week the boys are talking all about the Gameboy Advance.  Nintendo’s successor to the extremely popular Gameboy was touted by many as the SNES in your hands.  Well it was a lot more than that and we’re talking all about the crazy library of games that reminded us how fond we were of the 16 bit era.

This week we are talking about Capcom’s survival horror titles in a dinosaur-infested facility, Dino Crisis and Dino Crisis 2.  A testing ground for new survival horror mechanics, it’s interesting to see the decisions made in what is one of the more interesting two titles of the original Playstation’s late titles.

Podcast: Data Easy Meets West

leave a comment »

data_east_post

No it’s not a typo (just an inside joke), but we are actually talking about Data East and Data West.  This includes the games they developed, published, and even the pinball titles available.  It may not seem it, but Data East was a limited and significant developer of the mid-late 80s and just about all of the 90s.

Special thanks to Retronauts Episode 88 (1up Run), Brandon Sheffield (and his blog/podcast Insert Credit), as well as Topless Robot for your Data East and extensive Data West information.

Podcast: Unlicensed Cancellation

with one comment

mario128_post

This week we are talking about the world of games you didn’t play or weren’t supposed to.  A myriad of titles that either live in infamy through stories, developmental disasters, piracy, business decisions, and of course making games without permission from the console manufacturer.  Yup, it’s all about Unlicensed or Canceled games.
