008 - The Genre is Breakout

June 27, 2019

 Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, we start the morning out right with an intense action-arcade puzzler, #Breakforcist Battle.  Randall and DJ revisit a couple of games from last week—Randall polishes of Crocus and follows up on the remainder of his time with Blossom Tales, while DJ treads into the relentless waters of Bad North.  Kevin scratches beneath the surface of the procedurally-generated dungeons in Unexplored, finally has a little fun playing Splatoon 2, and chips in to save par with a nifty little card-based puzzler with some serious headscratchers, Golf Peaks

 

Games Discussed:

 

#Breakforcist Battle - 00:01:17

Splatoon 2 - 00:18:50

Bad North - 00:32:51

UnExplored - 00:45:28

007 - My Man Crocus Got a Raw Deal

...or did he?  Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week we talk the criminally-overlooked adventure game, Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King.  We inevitably get sidetracked into a little Legend of Zelda discussion as well, as the comparisons are impossible to deny (in a good way).  Kevin plays yet another roguelike this week with the minimalist-ish RTS game, Bad North.  DJ tries to stay awake with a solo play through of Cuphead.  And Randall shows off his competitive side with a double dose of competitive puzzlers, Puyo Puyo Champions & Super Puzzle Fighter II.  We also briefly follow up on The Swords of Ditto from last week.

 

Games Discussed:

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King - 00:01:15

---> The Legend of Zelda series - 00:23:55

The Swords of Ditto: Mormo's Curse - 00:31:04

Puyo Puyo Champions - 00:37:10

Cuphead - 00:47:15

Bad North - 01:03:45

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo: HD Remix - 01:17:21

Next Week's Game - 01:34:27

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week we have a few (too many?) drinks as we discuss the kinetic new release from Gabe Cuzillo, Bennet Foddy, Matt Boch, & indie publishing powerhouse Devolver Digital, Ape Out.  Kevin also follows up on last week's game with the spiritual successor to Sonic, Freedom Planet--just announced as a physical release from Limited Run Games.  Randall also goes old school and plays some Battle Circuit—previously unreleased outside of Japan—from the Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle.  DJ races into our hearts with the competitive multiplayer racer, Onrush.  Kevin & DJ also breeze through the beginning stages of The Swords of Ditto and Randy snags NBA 2K19 on the cheap and explores an old addiction.

 

Games Discussed:

 

Ape Out - 00:01:18

Onrush - 00:21:51

Freedom Planet - 00:33:41

Battle Circuit / Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle - 00:43:39
