Podcast Discussion / Episode 786: Monkey's Withdrawal
« on: August 28, 2022, 10:25:49 AM »

Turns out we do miss Jon when he's gone. Sort of.

Jon is out this week, doing whatever. It turns out we could have used the old scamp because we come out of the gate with a trio of emails. This week we: explore the emotional impact of shared experiences, take dangerous and untested memory drugs, and decide if we still want to cover SNK now that it's owned by a front for tyrannical dictator. If only we had Jon's impish glee. You can try to deposit some kind of positivity here.

After a break we dig into our New Business. Gui's review of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2 is up, so go give it a read. He's also worked through a few more chapters of Live A Live, and he's still really enjoying it. Lastly, both Greg and James are well into Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Greg is working through the rapidly opening open world, and James has finally finished off the game.

I'm not joking when I say the entire last third was constantly stuttering.

Ordering knives off TV is a way of life.

Jon is out this week so we run with a three-man show.

Gui starts New Business with Nobody Saves the World, an experimental RPG from the makers of Guacamelee. James is trying valiantly to come to grips (literally) with Crusader Kings 3 - on Xbox. Greg is exploring the newest additions to the Nintendo Switch Online classic games, including Kirby 64 and Umihara Kawase. He also has final thoughts on the remake of ActRaiser.

After a break we planned to do a couple emails, but inadvertently went long on just one: reboxing videos. You can erase your memories by sending us an email.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 771: OOPS! All Party Bois

Party email in the house tonight. Everybody just have a bad time. And we gon' make you lose your mind. Everybody just have a bad time

We opted to record a bit of a shorter episode this week, with Jon out, and a general lack of energy. We picked up three email to review: games for when you're just not up to gaming, concepts for Kirby to eliminate, and the future of Club Nintendo. You can fill the inbox here.

"A delayed game movie is eventually good, but a rushed game movie is forever bad."

-Probably Not Miyamoto

I assumed that the developers would always want you to pick the unlockable option, but I decided to ignore that and just go with my heart on each choice. A bit counter intuitive gameplay wise as you have to seek these unlockable options out in the world, but I like that there's seemingly no automatic win button.

This is something I just recently noticed as well. I stand by my statement, I'm the feudal lord, goddamn it.

Also, I'm not 100% on this, but I read that battles scale based on your army's level and maybe the difficulty. I was also wondering why I always like 1-2 levels behind the recommended level, but apparently it's designed that way. They give you a lot more exp when you're somewhat underleveled vs. being at or above the same level as enemies to make up for it. I felt like I had to grind more for money than exp just to get enough upgrade materials.

This could be true because I noticed I'm ALWAYS about 2 levels below the "Recommended" level for a mission regardless of how strong I am. I do appreciate that its VERY EASY to level up someone who is under-leveled.

If it feels right...

Sometimes, when I sit down to write this article, I realize I don't remember anything about the episode. I thankfully take production notes, but they're of dubious quality. I promise the content I advertise in the following text is that it feels like it was there. That's good enough. I just remembered Jon was out, so that's something!

Greg has some hands-on time with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC, and now that its cycling these stages into online he's able to report on them. He also got a discounted copy of Wonderful 101 on Switch. Guillaume is ever-so-close to the end of Final Fantasy XII and he has thoughts on this game's infamous status as the "Star Wars" Final Fantasy. James closes out New Business with an early look at Triangle Strategy. At the time of recording he had basically just seen the two demos again.

After a break we dig into the inbox. Two email this week ask us if organization is a "good" thing (it isn't) and to create a roleplay mod for a Nintendo Game. You can roleplay a podcast with an engaged listener base by sending us an email.

Get yourself an animal. They can often be very helpful...

I had a herding dog and a hound at the same time. It felt like a coordinated attack on my sanity.

In one sentence the game revealed 3 anime trope "plot twists."

In a single sentence.

Y'all, chill.

I tried to send an email but it was blocked as spam.

I'm sorry about it, our email client is being really weird all of a sudden. We had a lot of reports of this, and we're working on it.

In the meantime, the webform does work (we think). Please email with that and uh... let us know so I can confirm it does work.
