The Backlog Attack kicks off with Randy cheerfully slicing and dicing robots in Kirby: Planet Robobot. Meanwhile, D.J. struggles to make sense of the Flashback…
Tag: Final Fantasy XIV
We’re beating the summer heat in the frozen mountains of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, and the… air-conditioned spectral movie theater of Persona Q2, I guess?…
Randy is somehow tricked into playing New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (and Bowsette has nothing to do with it). Also, Pokémon Battle Trozei, and D.J. sees blue in the latest Final Fantasy XIV update.
Eight quick songs for your listening enjoyment.
Paul causes all kinds of gruesome dismemberment in Mortal Kombat XL and Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise. D.J. experiences the five stages of grief during the latest Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival. And, finally, Randy plays Spyro.
It’s most ambitious crossover event in VGH history: We played both sides of the Monster Hunter World x Final Fantasy XIV collaboration. Also, Randy discovers new things in Night in the Woods, D.J. plays the original Far Cry, and Paul tries a new Yakuza.
Paul starts traveling down the long and mysterious Octopath. D.J. makes things more difficult than necessary in Homesick. Also, an extreme throwback to BBS RPGs, and unexpected fun climbing a tower.
It’s E3 week and we can’t wait to hear all about the new Animal Crossing game!
Randy unveils his plan for Word Domination. D.J. navigates the treacherous staircases of Runner 3. Paul plays the same old same old. And someone, somewhere is excited for E3. Also: How realistic of a tennis game is Mario Tennis Aces?
What is Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon? A miserable pile of dated graphics and clunky controls. (Depending who you ask.) Also: Burly Men at Sea, the further adventures of wizards, and the first five prime numbers.
We find ourselves unmistakably inside the video game realm as Randy encounters Xbox Live pirates on the Sea of Thieves. Meanwhile, Paul plots a prison break in A Way Out, although he’d rather escape from Yakuza 5. D.J. doesn’t like a Final Fantasy thing.
Randy shoots up space-terrorists in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare before uncovering Radiant Historia‘s dark underbelly of anti-anime DLC. D.J. gives an update on the state of fashion in Final Fantasy XIV. And Paul continues hunting monsters, somewhere.
Randy plays his new favorite Uncharted game, besides that other one. Paul gets lost in the mysterious Super Nintendo dark web. D.J. attempts to drive a vehicle and gets caught in a land war. Meanwhile, golf continues.
Randy definitely still likes Metroid: Samus Returns but still takes a detour into Steamworld Dig 2. After an evening at the opera, D.J. gets parenting advice from an unexpected source. Paul plays that racing game he’s always playing, apparently.
Q: Why did the villagers in Ever Oasis build a juice bar? A: They needed something to drink with all the sand which is there!!!!!! Also: finally playing Horizon: Zero Dawn, finally logging into Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, finally releasing Star Fox 2.
E3 is a distant memory so we had to play games again. Games like Ever Oasis, Spellspire, Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood, and everyone’s favorite, Pubg.
Randy gets trapped in a spooky house in only a raincoat. D.J. learns the high cost of expressing himself. And you won’t believe what Paul’s been playing.
We take a break (mostly) from Zelda to tread very carefully around Nier: Automata spoilers, slither through Snake Pass, and tumble in a typical horse-like fashion across the world in Everything.
Randy pulls rank to get his hands on that new Zelda game (give or take 13 years). Paul and D.J. continue chasing orbs in Fire Emblem Heroes, although they wonder why everyone’s clothes keep falling off. Also, swords: Are they guns?
