Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, John plows through Forager and is ready to get that cartridge back over to Kevin so he can finally dip his toes into the dungeons.  From there, Randall & John are living that island life in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  Kevin & Randall both check out The Watcher, the latest addition to the roster of playable characters in Slay the Spire.  Kevin wraps things up with one of his most anticipated sequel-of-sorts, Exit the Gungeon.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - 00:07:11

March 23, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  We're all over the map this week, with DJ & Kevin kicking things off by finally getting around to playing Mark of the Ninja: Remastered.  Randall throws in the towel on Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and goes back to his previous JRPG love, Dragon Quest XI.  John dusts off his GameCube and attempts to break Metroid Prime for the umpteenth time.  Randall & Kevin wrap things up with some retro talk, with Randall zigzagging back and forth across the field in Tecmo Bowl, and Kevin reminiscing about an old favorite, Super Mario World—both of which are available on Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo Switch Online service!

 

Discussed:

Mark of the Ninja: Remastered - 00:01:12

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - 00:18:28

Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - 00:26:13

Metroid Prime - 00:27:57

045 - Mario Didn’t Even Make That Game

March 16, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  We're all back this week and talking some video games—and doing our best to keep ourselves distracted.  Kevin is still hooked on Forager...to the point where he's pawned the cartridge off on John in order to move onto to something new next week.  John is in a similar boat, and gets into the minutia of Rune Factory 4: Special, which was recently re-released on Switch.  DJ gets into a couple of horror games, with SOMA & Resident Evil &: Biohazard—and Kevin invites John & DJ over to do some horror game streaming in the (hopefully near) future.  Randall closes us out with another, much needed, NBA2K20 fix, in lieu of the remainder of the 2020 season.

 

Discussed:

Forager - 00:06:08

Rune Factory 4: Special - 00:13:25

SOMA- 00:25:46

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - 00:34:48

NBA2K20 - 00:40:16

March 9, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, Randall's keeping the retro train rolling once again with the (somewhat) recent re-release of Disney Classic Games: Aladdin & The Lion King.  Kevin is completely obsessed with Forager, and has already dumped 12+ hours into making those numbers go up.  DJ & John test the limits of their rhythmic sensibilities with TERRORHYTHM (TRRT), a solid music-based brawler of sorts.  Kevin & John wrap things up with Lazy Galaxy: Rebel Story, a charming-as-heck bullethell shmup with loads of character and various difficulty settings for all types of players.

 

Discussed:

Disney Classic Games: Aladdin & The Lion King - 00:01:57

Forager - 00:17:24

TERRORHYTHM (TRRT) - 00:32:46

Lazy Galaxy: Rebel Story - 00:48:06

043 - The Cloud Seas of Scotland

March 2, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, we're back in JRPG mode, as Randall gets pretty deep into Xenoblade Chronicles 2, while Kevin plays a bit of catch up—also rekindling John's love for this game.  DJ is still chipping away at Baba is You, and is getting well into the meta late game—yes, he's seen the credits roll, but what does that even mean?  John dusts off his copy of Advance Wars: Dual Strike on Nintendo DS after our WarGroove conversation a couple of weeks back, and we talk a bit about the pros & cons of each game's approach.  Kevin wraps things up with some more Titanfall 2 and kicks DJ's initial game challenge back over to Randall (and the rest of the gang), who will be playing Minit in the (somewhat) near future.

 

Discussed:

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - 00:01:15

Baba is You - 00:28:15

Advance Wars: Dual Strike & WarGroove - 00:42:23

Titanfall 2 - 00:52:12
