This week Fred sits down with Ali of 42 Level One to discuss the more popular 32-bit generation of CD-ROM consoles. What started as a disaster with the 3DO Interactive Player gave way to the big releases of the Sega Saturn and the Sony Playstation. While the Saturn may seem dead in the water for the West, it was a strong presence in the East. Finally everything wraps up with the beloved console that lacked sales: the Sega Dreamcast.
Sony came out of the gates swinging with a barrage of new games, sequels, trailers, and plenty of hints at what VR will be like with Playstation this October. While it was a dazzling display, the obvious fact that it was very impersonable struck a cord with some of our commentators. The All Games team assembles again to give its mixed take on the future of Playstation.
Not the most popular console among the GH101 community, but thanks to a handful of people we have a short, but delightful list of games beloved on Sony’s first portable. Be sure to give it a listen and find out what’s coming up for our July Top 10. We didn’t write out the top 10 because the podcast is so short (10 minutes) and it would spoil the fun. Go listen!
This week Fred and Jam are joined by Andy from 42 Level One to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Sony Playstation. This CD based console is responsible for so much ushering into the next iteration of game development, hardware, media, and game libraries. It touched each host in his own way and deserves to be celebrated on its second decade of existence.
This week we celebrate Jam (@Jamalais) coming on board as a permanent co-host, a slew of retro news, and onto the more modern topic of contemporary consoles. Now that the gang’s all here, we dissect the current state, conditions, and factors of the previously called “next gen” and loosely discuss the upcoming future.
This week Fred is joined by 42 Level One host Andy (@damien14273) and Video Game Outsiders own Matt (@MattoMcFly) to remenisce on the Playstation 3 including the launch, early titles, and myriad of ups and downs that Sony struggled with on its third console.
