051 - Maybe You’re Smarter Than Us…

April 27, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  Our dreams have finally come true, as Nintendo has finally added in the ability to make your very own worlds in Super Mario Maker 2.  We finally get around to talking a little Minit after the challenge was issued to Randall a couple of months back. After that, we all talk some SteamWorld Dig 2—yeah, this game is awesome!  Kevin wraps us up with some games that he's been playing online with friends and family lately—20XX (a Pursuing Pixels favorite) and Kirby's Dream Land 3.

 

Discussed:

Super Mario Maker 2 (Update 3.0) - 00:01:44

Minit - 00:14:07

SteamWorld Dig 2 - 00:23:21

20XX - 00:39:20

Kirby's Dream Land 3 - 00:42:29

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, we're throwing some D's on that...actually, let's just all forget that song ever existed.  That said, the letter 'D' is the theme of the week, with Kevin & John virtually reconnecting with the rest of their bandmates for a little Diablo III online.  Randall keeps the temperature running hot, as we hang around in Hell for a little while longer with DOOM 64.  Then we all talk through the early stages of Day and Night, a block-matching puzzler with some solid mechanics, and some iffy aesthetic choices.  John closes us out with a nostalgia trip from the Nintendo Wii era, the seemingly everlasting de Blob.

 

Discussed:

Diablo III: Eternal Collection - 00:02:03

DOOM 64 - 00:10:17

Day and Night - 00:16:45

de Blob - 00:27:16

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  John & Randall are still chipping away at Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and go into more depth on the game's pros & cons.  Kevin polished off the rest of Wilmot's Warehouse & was also able to play through the entirety of Pikuniku, which was recently added to Xbox Game Pass.  John & Kevin also talk about their SNES Stream from a couple weeks back—we checked out Kirby's Dream Land 3 primarily, but also dipped our toes into Puyo Puyo 2 & Pop'n TwinBee, neither of which were released in America prior to their arrival on Nintendo Switch.  We close things out with a discussion about Okami HD, which evolves into a conversation about when it's time to throw in the towel.

 

Discussed:

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - 00:01:08

Wilmot's Warehouse - 00:17:53

Pikuniku - 00:22:38

Super Nintendo Streaming - 00:27:17

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  We're still locked down in quarantine mode and hope you're all staying healthy and safe.  Thankfully video games have been keeping us nice and distracted in these trying times—so distracted that we completely forgot to say the name of our first game of the week, Children of Morta, which we've got widely differing opinions on.  Kevin's also still chipping away at Caveblazers, and briefly talks about some of his recent runs and streams on our Twitch channel.  He also finally gets around to playing Wilmot's Warehouse, which John recommended a while back on the podcast.  We wrap things up with a sale discussion, kicked off by a brief chat about Conduct Together!, which we all picked up for the criminally low price of a penny on the Nintendo Switch eshop.

Discussed:

Children of Morta - 00:01:43

Wilmot's Warehouse - 00:27:19

-----> Brief discussion on MEGA sales - 00:40:51
