042 - You Always Speak in Hyperbole

042 - You Always Speak in Hyperbole

February 24, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  The whole gang is here again and we're going back to our roots, squeezing in a little chaos mode (aka 4v4) in Rocket League before recording today's episode.  John also talks a bunch about the newly released console edition of Kentucky Route Zero—we also get into a bit of a lengthy chat about story-driven games in general, each of us coming at the genre from a pretty diverse set of angles.  Kevin gripes a bit about Rogue Singularity, but is having a pretty good time with it overall, in spite of its considerable levels of jank.  And everyone but Randall is still playing Wizard of Legend...and it's still getting the best of us (even DJ?!?).

 

Discussed:

Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition - 00:01:39

Rogue Singularity - 00:28:06

Wizard of Legend - 00:34:58

Rocket League - 00:42:21

041 - Don’t Put the Blame on Me

February 17, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, Kevin finally puts his money where his mouth is and heads over to the Krytpon VR Lounge with DJ & John, per DJ's suggestion.  We play a little Super Hot, Beat Saber, Spider-Man, and a few other various virtual reality experiences.  From there, it's back to the strategical battlefield—Kevin, Randall, & John are heading into the trenches with WarGroove, while DJ is hunkering down at his desk with the newly remastered Warcraft III: Reforged.

 

Discussed:

Virtual Reality - 00:01:23

-----> (Beat Saber, Super Hot, Spider-Man, etc.)

WarGroove - 00:25:17

Warcraft III: Reforged - 00:47:24

040 - Kirby Gets Tired, Unless You Give Him Some Cash

February 10, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  We're missing Randall once again, but we'll be back to full-strength next week!  In the meantime, John (and his wife Lauren) are getting into shape with Ring Fit Adventure—and we get a second wholehearted endorsement for Nintendo's exercise-JRPG hybrid.  DJ's hitting the rails with some sort of two-wheeled unicycle (also known as a bike?) in FutureGrind.  Kevin keeps the retro train rolling in Randall's absence once again, this time going with Kirby Super Star.  We talk a little more about everyone's favorite pink puffball after that, as DJ & John resist digging into their wallets while playing through Super Kirby Clash, a free-to-play incarnation of the franchise on Nintendo Switch.  We wrap things up with Super Time Force Ultra, which incorporates the concept of time travel into gameplay in some incredibly clever (and insane) ways.

 

Discussed:

Ring Fit Adventure - 00:01:15

FutureGrind - 00:13:46

Kirby Super Star - 00:23:55

Super Kirby Clash - 00:32:24

Super Time Force Ultra - 00:40:34

039 - It is Difficult, I Just Don’t Understand Why

039 - It is Difficult, I Just Don’t Understand Why

February 3, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  We're rolling without Randall for a couple of weeks while he prepares for finals, but Kevin is keeping the retro torch lit in his stead, following up on our Metroidvania discussion from a few weeks ago with a little Super Metroid.  DJ kicks us off with a recap of his time on Chris Jericho's Rock 'N' Wrestling Rager at Sea, a wrestling-themed cruise (as the name would imply), and even finds himself roped into a small poker tournament.  John is still playing Risk of Rain 2, and there are a bunch of new updates since the last time we talked about it!  We also check out the new, free Thundering Keep DLC for Wizard of Legend, yet another roguelike action game.  Kevin & John also dip their toes into Titanfall 2, taking DJ up on his challenge from a few weeks back—we'll definitely be getting more to this game in the near(-ish) future.

 

Discussed:

Chris Jericho's Rock 'N' Wrestling Rager at Sea - 00:01:23

----> (DJ discusses his recent voyage at sea, including AEW Wrestling, his time at the casino, and a poker tournament that he got himself roped into...)

Risk of Rain 2 - 00:15:53

Wizard of Legend (Thundering Keep Update) - 00:23:15

Super Metroid - 00:32:40

Titanfall 2 (tease) - 00:45:35
