Gaming History 101

Know Your Roots

Podcast: Snatcher and Policenauts Game Club

with 2 comments


Hideo Kojima, best known for the quirky stealth series Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid has also delved into the world of visual novels and point-and-click adventure games.  If you aren’t aware of them, it’s probably because Snatcher released on the Sega CD only and didn’t clear 10,000 units sold in the US and Policenauts has never released outside of Japan.  Thanks to Fred’s lucky ownership of a super rare game and emulation/fan translations for all other instances, the GH101 crew delves deeply into a nearly 3 hour podcast on Kojima’s futuristic adventures with some of the worst shooting sequences in all of gaming.

  1. When I originally played Snatcher all those years ago I never once thought that the act I & II names were suggestive…. after all, Snatch and Junk refer to the character roles in the game (Snatcher and Junker).

    I would think only a person who constantly has sex on their mind all the time would think that way…. but then, if we’re going down this route, then act 4 of Policenauts (Organ) could be suggestive as hell too….

    • You’re not wrong. It’s become clear to me I need to go back and re-listen to these episodes again. The specific comments made in an episode I can no longer remember. I’m going to go back to the beginning.
