Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels—and welcome back to DJ!  He's back with us this week for a discussion on September's GOTM, Katana Zero.  Apart from that, we've all (for once) been playing through some new releases lately.  Randall and Kevin give some early impressions on Untitled Goose Game.  Randall also checks out one of the most intriguing games in the Apple Arcade lineup (though he's playing it on Switch), Sayonara Wild Hearts.  DJ closes us out with the surprisingly lengthy (and difficult) final chapter of Celeste.

 

Discussed:

September's GOTM: Katana Zero - 00:01:09

Untitled Goose Game - 00:24:12

Sayonara Wild Hearts - 00:35:38

Celeste (Chapter 9 DLC) - 00:46:36

*GOTM - 00:56:19

 

*For the month of October, we'll be playing Caveblazers.  Feel free to play along with us and join in on the discussion at the end of the month!

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  John is officially paying Kevin rent, as he joins us for yet another week of gaming chatter, filling in for DJ.  He's also the only one playing anything shiny and new, with the delightfully charming Wilmot's Warehouse.  Kevin finally gets around to checking out NieR: Automata, crossing his fingers that his PS4 doesn't take flight.  From there, Randall and John hack and slash their way through a longtime staple, Diablo III and follow that up with some more NBA 2K19 and general basketball talk. John's also takes a trip down (recent) memory lane, recapping his decade-and-a-half long experience with Kingdom of Loathing.

 

Discussed:

Wilmot's Warehouse - 00:01:19

NieR: Automata - 00:16:01

Diablo III - 00:28:59

Kingdom of Loathing - 00:40:08

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  John is back once again, filling in for DJ this week.  Randall and Kevin descend beneath the surface and look to set the record straight on Chasm.  20 SNES games have finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch—we have a quick round table highlighting what we've been playing since they arrived, including Stunt Race FX, F-Zero, Breath of Fire, & more.  Kevin gives a quick update on his time with No Man's Sky, and continues his space travels with Astroneer & Void Bastards (both available on XBox Game Pass).  John and Kevin wrap things up with some early impressions of Risk of Rain 2, and they can't wait to play more!

Welcome back to Pursing Pixels.  John joins us once again this week, doing his best to keep us relevant with Fire Emblem: Three Houses.  Kevin and DJ build a couple empires of their own in Kingdom: New Lands.  Kevin and Randall follow that up with a look at the quickly-forgotten action-puzzler on the Switch/3DS, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido.  We wrap things up with a little more Nintendo talk, discussing the two most recent additions to the Switch's NES Online offerings.  Randall takes a stroll down memory lane with Kung Fu Heroes, while Kevin takes a look at an overlooked gem, Vice: Project Doom.

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels—and welcome back to our good buddy John Heinze, who joins us once again for another Game of the Month episode.  For the month of August, we the fight the battle of Mechs vs. Veks in Into the Breach, another roguelike (chess-like?) strategy game.  Kevin finally gets around to grabbing (and playing) Super Hot after it was surprisingly released during the Nintendo Indie World showcase.  John continues convincing the rest of us to play Dragon Quest Builders 2, digging into some of the new Season Pass DLC.  We also rekindle our love for the wonderful (and super cheap) cooperative card game, Hanabi, after playing it again at John's 'bachelor party' over the weekend.

 

Discussed:

August's GOTM: Into the Breach - 00:01:00

Super Hot - 00:26:27

Dragon Quest Builders 2 (Season Pass/DLC) - 00:41:49
