Episode 861: Planet of the Apes - Kountry of the Kongs
« on: February 11, 2024, 04:35:59 PM »

Look forward to the first AAAAA Game, coming fourth quarter, 2020s.

This week, I'm rushing to write the article, so buckle-up!

James starts the show by not talking about Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure, or trying to at least. He then spends the majority of his time on Captain Toad, a port of a Wii U game that he has never played. Turns out its not a great game to marathon.

Greg has some early impressions of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, which is seemingly on sale already. He then gives thoughts on Yooka-Laylee, a 3D platformer from early in the Switch's life, featuring the work of a number of long-time Rare developers.

Gui and Jon opted to skip New Business, leaving time for LISTENER MAIL!

It goes here.

So with our extra time we managed a total of...two. Fix the Microsoft brand in Japan (Challenge impossible!) and make a licensed Nintendo game (note, from Nintendo not of Nintendo).

That's why every episode costs $19m USD.

Japan's bifurcated electrical system is due to Osaka and Tokyo choosing different suppliers in the late 19th Century, not due to the post-WW2 Occupation Authority.  Osaka bought from Europe causing Western Japan to build off of its 50 HZ, while Tokyo bought from America giving Eastern Japan 60 Hz.  It remains today due to the difficulty of changing electrical systems.

Tokyo is 50Hz, Osaka is 60Hz. I live in the greater Tokyo area, and was late for work when I first moved here because my American alarm clock was running wrong.
