054 - That’s a Huge Digression

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, we kick the ball around for a bit before we get into the bulk of the episode.  John gives some first impressions on Lonely Mountains: Downhill, as Kevin is having a tough time putting it down.  Randall & John are still living the island life, keeping up their daily routines in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  Randall also dips his toe into the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy.

Kevin checks out yet another Xbox Game Pass title, Creature in the Well, a pinball-dungeon-crawler hybrid.  John imports a European copy of Luigi's Mansion 3 for himself as a personal birthday treat, and Randall polishes off another floor of the hotel.  Kevin also dusts off his Wii U and finally gets around to Yoshi's Woolly World, unearthing a multitude of Yoshi feelings we never knew we had.

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  Randall finally signs up for Xbox Game Pass, as he just couldn't wait for his physical copy of Streets of Rage 4 to arrive.  He & Kevin blazed through some levels online and—yeah, this is how you modernize a retro franchise/genre!  Kevin also checks out Lonely Mountains: Downhill after seeing nothing but rave reviews.  He's in the same boat, and is borderline obsessed.  John sings the praises of Keita Takahashi after picking up Katamari Damacy: Reroll on Nintendo Switch.  Kevin & Randall also both polished off SteamWorld Dig 2 and still highly recommend checking it out, if you somehow managed to miss this one (like we did).

 

Discussed:

Street of Rage 4 - 00:02:16

Lonely Mountains: Downhill - 00:17:06  &  00:32:06

Katamari Damacy: Reroll - 00:24:54

SteamWorld Dig 2 - 00:34:21

Episode Number Anniversary Edition - 2020

May 11, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, we're celebrating our first year of the podcast with a few drinks, and a few of our favorite games that (somehow) we have yet to discuss.  Kevin kicks things off with Downwell, a nearly perfect arcade action game wrapped up in a slick, criminally cheap, roguelike package.  Randall let's us know where how far back his obsession with sports games goes, and throws it all the back to NHL '94 on Sega CD—because, where else would Randall be playing it?  John reminisces about another retro game that filled a much-needed JRPG void for Nintendo fans in the GameCube era, with Tales of Symphonia.

We wrap things up by looking back at our first year of the show, and also looking forward to what the future holds for both ourselves, and for the podcast.

 

Discussed:

Downwell - 00:02:41

NHL '94 - 00:13:48

Tales of Symphonia - 00:24:42

-----> Wrap up discussion - 00:32:23

----------> Star Wars  (w/ a little Trek) chatter - 00:43:49

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  We're merely a duo this week, but we've got a bunch of games to gab about!  Randall kicks us off with his daily quarantine routine, as he's still plugging away at Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  Kevin is still taking advantage of his Game Pass subscription, moving along to Journey from the Savage Planet, which was on his radar thanks to John.  The two of us bust out the gushers after that, and heap some more praise on top of Sayonara Wild Hearts & Ape Out.  We tease a little Risk of Rain 2 for the next time that John is able to join us, before wrapping things up by taking one small step for man, and one giant step for...this podcast? 

That's right!  We're entering the future (aka the present) and have a brand new Discord channel all set up and ready to go!  Come hang & chat about what you're playing with us as we wrap up our first your of podcasting and move into the next!

 

Thanks for listening <3
