Episode 42: Disease Explosion

Kaz gets a neat new mount in Legion, Kyle plays Gears of War 4 and thinks he might kind of enjoy NES Remix 2 maybe, and William continues working his way through Dustforce and Xenoblade Chronicles X. In news, we talk the possibility of Marvel vs. Capcom 4, the Game Awards, and the future of GameStop (…or was that Hot Topic?). Then in Save Point, we revisit the wonders of flash games with Kaz’s take on Burger Tycoon. Come pause with us!

Game awards are happening this week! http://thegameawards.com/

 No Man’s Sky is releasing its first content update, which includes the building blocks for base building and “a foundation for things to come.” Too little, too late? http://www.no-mans-sky.com/news/

 GameStop is struggling a bit, as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare underperforms. Pokemon Sun and Moon had huge preorder numbers, though, and are the most preordered games for the chain in the past 5 years. Does GameStop still have a big place in the industry, or is it on its way out? http://www.gamespot.com/articles/gamestop-sales-hurting-as-new-call-of-duty-underpe/1100-6445664/

One thought on “Episode 42: Disease Explosion

  1. I thought of a young girl protagonist: Lume from Lumino City. Granted, Lumino City isn’t that great of a game, but it has received a lot of well deserved recognition for being a beautiful game with impressive hand crafted scenes. It’s a point-and-click adventure game in which Lume needs to discover what happened to her grandfather by exploring the city. She’s portrayed as an ordinary little girl, yet a capable one who takes on a number of challenges around the city that most of the adults can’t seem to be bothered with.
    It’s on steam. Again, it’s not a GREAT game. Some of the story is kind of silly and the puzzles can be a little obtuse. But if you catch it on sale or in a bundle, it’s worth at least a few dollars.
