This is a podcast, there are many like it, but this one is yours. Wugga seems to think that I was in a bad mood for this one, I disagree and think he should shut up.
It’s that time of the week, and by that I mean the time, that I finally work up the gumption to edit and post the pod. This week we talk a fair bit about Aliens vs Predator and how GaR has been playing some Army of Two 40th Day.
Another handheld Zelda, I was half interested, half apprehensive when I realised that Ahmad was too deep undercover on a ButtonMasher sponsored initiative to conquer Asia to send him the game. My main point of concern was something that might not faze the enamoured Zelda/Nintendo fan, but to me it was off putting, a locomotion powered dungeon crawl.
Sometimes when your fellow castinites don’t want to come record their monotonous voices onto a solid state drive you need to revert back to the old school way of doing things. This weeks podcast is powered by wooden wheels and a steam engine, that’s right, Wugga and I ate some Mango Chicken Curry and a Limoncello Creme Brulee and we done recorded ourselves a duet. Such a sweet sweet harmony you haven’t heard in many a pod.
There is also a competition with in. The spoils are copies of games, the challenge will evoke the child within, so get out your crayons and Etch A Sketch, no skill required, artists need not apply.
Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story is the latest handheld iteration to the successful “Mario RPG” franchise. It is the second game to appear on the DS and follows Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time which had a mixed reception after the popular Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga for GameBoy Advance. While Bowser’s Inside Story is unlikely to win over gamers that dislike the battle system and format used in the series, fans that were less than impressed with Partners in Time should not snub this latest episode.
Contrary to the title, Starfy is not legendary, in fact this is his first game to be released outside of Japan. He is a little star shaped character that lives in a palace in the clouds and happens to be a prince. At first I thought that Starfy was a Star, because after all he does live in the clouds, but then I started thinking he was a Starfish, like Patrick Star (SpongeBob’s friend), because he swims like a real pro and has a spin attack, it turns out he might not be either. Not knowing what he is doesn’t mean I can’t play with him though, even though he isn’t one of them that’s the whole premise of the entire Pokemon franchise, right?
