The gang tries on some practical outerwear in The Division 2. Randy tries extra hard not to kill anyone in Deltarune. D.J. has had it with his coworkers Dragalia Lost. And you won’t believe the lengths we went to in order to acquire a PlayStation 2.
Randy voyages to the far-off land of Boston, Pennsylvania (?), to attend PAX East, play video games, eat cookies, and silently judge cosplayers. Erik Kubik (from The Gamer’s Lounge) and Zenprime (from The Internet) join in on the fun.
Please enjoy this episode full of PAX East hype that we recorded before they canceled the East Coast. Also: skateboarding in OlliOlli2, French lessons, an MMO memorial to Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek Online, Ironfall: Invasion puts the “gears” and “war” into Gears of War, the Final Fantasy XIV community loses its collective mind over a card game, and we try to uncover the origin of #MetroidMarch. (Spoiler: We invented it.)
It turns out we still have a few more games from PAX East to talk about, including Rats: Time Is Running Out and Chasm. Meanwhile, 119 million Gameboys still work after 25 years, Randy scoffs at the meager challenge of Super Mario Bros. 3, D.J. practices crashing planes in Strike Vector, and Paul hates the Steam controller.
Randy and D.J. are going to PAX East this year so Nintendo, Sony, and friends don’t have to, apparently. But why is that exactly? We also discuss Vlambeer’s indie guilt over Ridiculous Fishing, Batmanstlevania: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Final Fantasy, and, as always, baseball.
