011 - You Gotta Watch Out for LBJ

July 19, 2019

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  Ahhh...that's more like it.  We're back to our more typical habits this week, and polishing off games that we've talked about in previous episodes.  Uncle Randall is back on his bullshit, trying to rebuild the Pistons from scratch around Blake Griffin in NBA 2K19.  But can he get past LeBron?  He also plays Miles & Kilo along with Kevin, who actually finishes a game for once.  Kevin & DJ also check out the demo for a brand new, local/online multiplayer game, Lethal League Blaze—a fighting game, baseball hybrid?!  Kevin rounds out his week with a couple more platformers—one, an action-puzzler, MagiCat, and the other...you guessed it...a roguelite, just released this week, Eagle Island.  Randall highlights a personal favorite of his on the Switch, Marble it Up!, a Super Monkey Ball/Marble Madness spiritual successor of sorts.  DJ beats the The Messenger twice and proceeds to turning his brain off to revisit an old past time of competitive online gaming.  He's back on Uncharted & Rocket League this week, and he won't stop until he wins a game, goddammit!
