Best Intro Ever?

Does this game intro still give you goosebumps today?  It does to me.  There have been many new games to have come out since PSO, but the emotions this game conjures up is second to none.  We did get a PSO game for the DS, that while decent, wasn’t quite as memorable as its predecessor.  I would really love to see an upgraded port of this come to the 3DS.  It would be perfect on the 3DS.  Make it happen, Sega.  Do it for the people that want to experience it again.  And especially do it for the people that never quite got that chance.

Episode 024 – Falling For 3DS

Well, it’s been almost 2 months but we’ve finally posted a new episode. I feel like I’m writing these apology posts once a month but so be it. Sorry to all our listeners for the sporadic release schedule. Were doing our best and as always thanks for sticking with us. This episode, while being a short one, is still full of awesome Nintendo goodness. So download HERE and enjoy! By the way, Adam and I have been brainstorming like crazy and have a bunch of episode ideas in the pipeline so stay tuned… Or subscribed. Whatever.

Editorial: The Future of Video Gaming

I’m a huge fanboy of video games.  I play them and I think a lot about them.  In fact I’m always thinking about games from the past.  I’m always thinking about games in the present.  And I’m especially thinking about what gaming will be like 20, 30, or 50 years from now.

I speculate that, ultimately, video game creation will reach the peak of its craft before the end of my lifetime.  Let me elaborate.  Games nowadays for example have reached a point of graphical fidelity that is getting very close to photo realism.  We are probably a couple of console generations from reaching complete photo realism on a TV screen.  Sure we can keep adding more detail, more resolution, more frames per second, but ultimately we are limited by our own eyesight, what our eyes are capable of seeing.  Also, from a game revenue standpoint, diminishing graphical gains will seem unreasonable to the increasing price of manpower when you get to a certain level of graphics.  The same could be said of sound, but we are already there for digital sound and have been for some time.  All that’s left is innovations in user interface, and there are a lot of opportunities and potential to improve there.

The Forgotten Tower

All this recent talk about Adam’s Zelda-ish rogue-like game, ‘The Infinite Cave,’ has given me an itch to go back and play an old retro dungeon crawler.  The first game to pop up in my head was of course ‘The Tower of Druaga.’  It shares many of the same traits of a rogue-like, but is not a rogue-like in the truest sense.  It has a very hardcore cult following, and for good reason.  It’s probably one of the hardest dungeon crawlers ever created by man.  Between the extreme intricate know how of what is required to be done at each level, and the lightning quick reflexes required to navigate through the mazes unharmed, its no wonder so many give up before getting in far enough to truly appreciate this game.   If that sounds like your cup of tea, and you’re a glutton for punishment, you could be in for a real retro treat.   Continue reading

Ni No Kuni TVCM

This commercial is so adorable.

To a lesser extent this as well.

This one has a cat and the girl is wearing a cute hair pin.

The more I think about Ni No Kuni, the more I am wanting to import it. I can’t find it cheap anywhere so I will wait until I have some expendable income.
