038 - Split Those Joy-Cons Up, Baby!

January 27, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, Randall is back on the retro train, taking full advantage of the SNES games available via the Nintendo Switch Online service—this time, he's discovered a newfound fondness for Super Punch-Out!!, primarily having experience with the NES original.  He follows that up with another title from the immaculately-preserved Sega Ages lineup, Virtua Racing.  We kick things off with a follow-up from John on Ashen, discussing some more of the dungeon mechanics—and he's getting awfully close to the end of the game.  Kevin talks a bit about Gris, an absolutely stunning work of art, that happens to have a clever little puzzle-platformer attached to it.  DJ wraps things up with an old favorite pastime of ours, Catan, though this time he's playing on the Nintendo Switch and we discuss the (mostly) pros & (a few small) cons of digital board games.

Discussed:

Ashen - 00:01:35

Gris - 00:11:56

Super Punch-Out!! - 00:18:15

Sega Ages: Virtua Racing - 00:27:54

Catan - 00:31:50
