The DS sees plenty of love this week, as we explore and evaluate it’s software library thus far. Also, Mike magically goes from mildly hating Final Fantasy VIII to liking it quite a bit. Plus all of the week’s gaming news and the upcoming game releases.
This week, we chastise Sony a bit (don’t worry, Mike picks on Microsoft too). Mike picks up a side quest in his adventures in Final Fantasy, Ajguy gets sucked back into Oblivion, and for some reason we discuss the best Sonic game ever. This will be the last show produced with Ajguy is Los Angeles, so this is sure to become a collector’s item. Get it while it’s hot!
This week we celebrate an embarrassment of riches as the Orange Box is released. Ajguy discusses one of the sleeper hits of the year, Puzzle Quest, now available on XBLA and PC. Mike beats yet another Final Fantasy. Also, the Saturn is remembered for no particular reason.
This week, we talk about the long await Phantom Hourglass. Mike’s time with Mega Man Powered Up prompts a discussion of the best Mega Man ever! Plus Bungie’s leaving Microsoft, Rockstar has a bug up their ass, and David Hayter gives us some good news.
This week, we discuss hardware pricing rumors, the return of Samba de Amigo, and Ajguy learns that Phantom Hourglass comes out next week! To celebrate, we discuss which is the best Zelda ever. Oh, and we talk about Halo 3.
This week, Ajguy is enjoying the sweet, sweet candy that is Team Fortress 2. Mike gets his hands on Lair and Warhawk having bested yet another Final Fantasy. You like controllers? Well find out which one is the best ever.
This week we remember the Sega Dreamcast, Ajguy meets Castlevania head honcho Koji Igarashi, and Mike is chugging through Final Fantasy VI. Do you like news? We’ve got everything from studio closures to Rez on XBLA!
