Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  Last episode with the slight change in the audio set up here, but we'll be back to normal next week.  This week, we all take advantage of Qubic Games' loyalty program of sorts, and pick up Mana Spark for a buck on the Nintendo Switch—we're a little more mixed than usual on this one.  After that, John look for some big air in Snowboarding: The Next Phase, and then takes us all on a little trip down memory lane with Tony Hawk Pro Skater franchise thanks to a recent thrift store snag.  DJ tackles another tough-as-nails platformer with simplistic (and maybe confusing?) controls, Standby.  And we wrap things up with an indie classic from Studio Pixel, Cave Story, which should need no introduction.

 

Discussed:

Mana Spark - 00:00:55

Snowboarding: The Next Phase - 00:19:03

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 (& series) - 00:24:58

Standby - 00:36:47

Cave Story+ - 00:45:15

*GOTM - 00:56:34

 

*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!

028 - It Looks Like There’s Gonna Be Some Aliens

November 17, 2019

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  We've got the whole gang back, this time with a new video setup so Kevin, DJ, & John can look Randall in the eyes—unfortunately, there's a slight dip in audio quality thanks to the new & untested setup, but we'll have things back to normal in a couple of weeks.  That said, there's nothing that will keep us from our weekly videogame gabbing, and we kick things off this week with the re-release of sorts, New Super Lucky's Tale, which we all checked out the demo for.  From there, Kevin keeps the 3D platformer revival going with another new Switch release, A Hat in Time.  Randall's on the retro beat again, looking at another great re-imagining of a forgotten classic, The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors.  DJ looks at a little 'reboot' of his own, with the surprisingly difficult puzzle platformer, Seeders: Puzzle Reboot.  We close things out with Randall & John talking a little more Dragon Quest XI S, now that the two of them are both well on their way towards victory.

New Super Lucky's Tale - 00:01:03

A Hat in Time - 00:10:47

The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors - 00:20:28

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  John is on an impromptu honeymoon, so we're back to the original trio for this week.  Randall is on the Nintendo beat per usual, and gets in the Halloween spirit with their newest release, Luigi's Mansion 3.  Kevin is bent on his usual tough-as-nails platformers and digs into a couple of small-ish indie titles, Kuso & Atomik RunGunJumpGun.  DJ & Kevin are still chasing down the horizon in Race the Sun, which is quite the seductive autorunner experience—we've still gotta get our hands on a VR rig at some point!  We also check out the demo for an unassuming 2.5D platformer that none of us had ever heard of, Jet Kave Adventure.  DJ also has a short segment on Linelight, an attempt to reduce gameplay down to its most basic form.

 

Discussed:

Luigi's Mansion 3 - 00:01:20

Kuso - 00:13:07

Linelight - 00:21:13

Atomik RunGunJumpGun - 00:26:28

Race the Sun - 00:33:01

Jet Kave Adventure - 00:39:19

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  Kevin finishes another game, believe it or not, and digs into Anodyne with John, who is just getting into its early stages.  Randall journeys back to an Elusive Age and somehow remembers the full title for Dragon Quest XI on Switch.  John sticks in the realm of JRPGs and gets into the many quality of life improvements offered up in the new Remasters of the Final Fantasy series.  DJ's still hanging around and hacking away in the Darkest Dungeon.  And, to no one's surprise at all, Kevin's playing another indie platformer, Bomb Chicken.

 

Discussed:

Anodyne - 00:01:09

Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - 00:16:50

Final Fantasy (Remasters) - 00:29:06

Darkest Dungeon - 00:39:31

Bomb Chicken - 00:50:22
