Episode 126: I Only Play Games From Japan

Pause Screen is here! This time Kyle tells us about Ys VII, Castlevania 4, and his collecting addiction while William talks about Tales of Vesperia, Touhou 6, and Fate/Grand Order. For the Hype Train, we get hype about Sekiro coming out, Cuphead on Switch, and more! For discussion topics, we tackle Microsoft extending Xbox Live to iOS and Android (plus the Switch), Google’s Stadia, and the Badland Games/Publishing mess with Axiom Verge. To finish up, Kyle tells us about one more game he’s played: the weird postmodern Travis Strikes Again. Come pause with us!

HYPE TRAIN *toot toot*

  • SEKIROOOOOO
  • Octopath Traveler mobile prequel (sad train)
  • Cuphead on Switch
  • Cadence of Hyrule
  • Katana Zero looks nice too
  • The Happy Hob just beat all 5 soulsborne games in a row without taking a hit (apart from a required one in Dark Souls 1)

Discussion:

Microsoft just launched an Xbox Live SDK for iOS and Android.

That’s right, achievements, friend lists, and more on mobile. They’re definitely trying to be everywhere. https://www.theverge.com/2019/3/14/18265214/microsoft-xbox-live-ios-android-games-support-features
