Modern Warfare 9!? We love our gaming sequels… or do we? Some are good, some… not so much. In this week’s episode the VGH crew talk about what they think makes a great sequel. In our Hangover Segment, D.J. impresses with his encyclopedic knowledge of the Godfather films. We also dive into a discussion on some of our personal favourite and not so favourite gaming sequels.
In this episode’s installment of Video Game Community Theatre, we try our hand at Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. The results? Well, listen for yourself! In the second part of our show, we play “The Sequel Game” which we blatantly stole from Kotaku. Thanks Kotaku! Also, one lucky listener wins the AWARD OF THE WEEK!
We’d love to get your reviews on iTunes and the Zune Marketplace. We’d love it even more if those reviews were positive! If you’ve enjoyed the show please take a moment to follow the links and say something nice about us. Perhaps, in an upcoming episode, we’ll take a little time to say something nice about you in return?

All this sequel talk you guys had made me remember I game I wished would get remade/rebooted… If I could have a sequel of any game next year, it would be a 3D remake of ActRaiser! 😀 The game would cover the stories of both Act1 & Act2. ‘The Master’ would fight in both worlds, would earn his wings when He reaches Act2 world. In addition to that, BOTH worlds (including Act2!) would have the simulation parts with the angel! It would have the original symphonic suite, and brand new compositions by Yuzo Koshiro. And finally, the game with have the old-school Act1 and Act2 as secret unlockable games, in either HD (SSF2THDR style) or Original… and Square-Enix includes the REAL ActRaiser 2, with the simulation parts with the angel intact! >_>
You guys had no idea how disappointed I was that ActRaiser 2 did away with the simulation parts with the angel. I’ve never felt so burned buying a game, ever.
As for any game coming out tomorrow… Starhawk, ’nuff said. XD
And finally, I guess I should watch the Godfather sometime. In fact, I’ve never actually seen ANY of the Godfather films. >_>
Dude, an ActRaiser sequel/remake… I’ll preorder that right now! I’ve pretty much blocked ActRaiser 2 from my memory because they took out the sim sections. That game deserves a do over.
Actraiser is unfortunately one of my gamer shames, so I can’t comment on that. But I’d definitely be interested in a re-release based on how highly people speak of it!
As for Starhawk… definitely yes! I missed out on Warhawk and it looks like precisely the kind multiplayer game I’d be into. I love 3rd person shooters with loosey goosey game play and vehicles. I can’t wait for Starhawk, I think it will be amazing.
Watch the Godfather films.
Find a way to play the first ActRaiser, Paul. I promise you WON’T be disappointed… The music in that game is one of best in gaming, and the game is pretty short too.
You just… have to experience that game.
D.J. told me it was on Virtual Console on the Wii, so I am gonna get it pretty damn soon! Can’t wait!
How exciting! It would be cool if we could hear your impressions of the game in a future episode! 😉
