025 - Now I Gotta Do a Real Run

October 28, 2019

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  Randall's back this week just in time for October's GOTM, Caveblazers.  He's also back to give us some early impressions of Nintendo's latest exercise-centric endeavor, Ring Fit Adventure—though it is certainly not the ideal game when you're under the weather.  Kevin introduces DJ & John (and himself) to Race the Sun, a mighty thrilling, minimalistic auto-runner (flier?) experience.  (Is Kevin ever gonna get the VR setup he keeps talking about?)  John & Kevin get into a bit of a predicament with the visual novel/puzzle battler hybrid, The World Next Door.  We also take some time to talk some more DOOM, as DJ inspired John to play through the entire game all over again, and we get some thoughts from Randall's end, as well.

 

Discussed:

October's GOTM: Caveblazers - 00:01:47

Ring Fit Adventure - 00:31:11

Race the Sun - 00:42:16

The World Next Door - 00:52:26

DOOM (2016) - 01:02:29

*GOTM - 01:11:40

 

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

024 - Happy to Have it Back in My Life

024 - Happy to Have it Back in My Life

October 21, 2019

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  We're bent on utter destruction with a bunch of combat-heavy games to talk about this week.  John is on the crew full-time, but we're still missing Randall for this one.  Kevin gets things started with a new release of an early indie classic from Vlambeer, Super Crate Box.  DJ finally gets around to trying his hand at 20XX—he beats it on hard mode and unlocks new characters that we didn't even know existed, to no one's surprise at all.  John straps into his mech and turns his brain off (is that safe?) with the slightly under the radar, Nintendo-published Daemon X Machina.  DJ takes us down to the gruesomely pixelated depths of the underworld with Slain: Back From Hell.  We hang out a little while longer in the netherworld as John & DJ get into DOOM (2016) in anticipation of the upcoming (and slightly delayed) DOOM Eternal.

 

Discussed:

Super Crate Box - 00:01:10

20XX - 00:08:39

Daemon X Machina - 00:12:13

Slain: Back From Hell - 00:25:50

DOOM (2016) - 00:32:09

*GOTM - 00:45:03

 

*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.  This week, John fills in for Randall, and also joins the podcast full-time!  (Or, at least whenever he can.)  He's also a man of his word and is back to share some brief thoughts on a PP favorite, Chasm.  Apart from that, we dance over to Cadence of Hyrule thank to a little nudge from Link's Awakening last week.  John and Kevin each dip into new puzzle games out on the Switch—Cyber Protocol puts Kevin into a trance with it's neon-cyberpunk aesthetic & John introduces the rest of us to Crossniq+, a competitive puzzler with serious Y2K-era aesthetics.  Kevin & DJ also blast their way through Omega Strike...a wish list game.

 

Discussed:

Cadence of Hyrule - 00:01:15

Chasm - 00:12:13

Omega Strike - 00:17:24

Crossniq+ - 00:26:30

Cyber Protocol - 00:34:12

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, Randall and Kevin take a trip to Koholint Island in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.  Kevin and DJ can't resist the call to the throne, this time taking a look at a 'sequel of sorts,' Kingdom: Two Crowns.  Randall finishes off Chasm completionist-style, and shares some closing thoughts on one of our favorite indies in recent memory.  DJ closes us out (and makes up for lost time) with a couple of brutal titles—Serial Cleaner, a stylish, jazzy little stealth game, and Darkest Dungeon, which needs no introduction...

 

Discussed:

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening - 00:02:17

Kingdom: Two Crowns - 00:19:18

Chasm - 00:37:40

Serial Cleaner - 00:44:11
