The bros are back to the dismay of many. Odin Sphere is getting some play in the closet while Metroid Fusion is a fun blast from the past. Kevin’s stream in tribute of his father is a big hit and P1 spends the week in combats playing soldier.

Dark Cloud is an action role-playing video game developed by Level-5 and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 2. Originally intended as a launch title for the PlayStation 2, the game was released in Japan in December 2000, in North America in May 2001, and in Europe in September 2001. Combining action role-playing with elements of city-building games, the game tells the story of a group of adventurers who band together to fight against the evil Dark Genie, who has attacked and destroyed many villages. The protagonist is Toan, a boy who is given a magical stone called the "Atlamillia" by Simba, the Fairy King, which has the power to rebuild the destroyed lands.

Nintendo stirs the pot with a couple of tweets and a rumour. Do social media managers hold an important position among the game industry? If you sold your WiiU things are looking good for you as Nintendo brings over all the hits! P1 clearly has no idea what is considered a spoiler and what isn’t as he talks about Get Out.

One month after the events of Mass Effect, the SSV Normandy is patrolling for geth resistance when it is suddenly attacked by an unknown vessel, forcing the crew to abandon ship. After pushing Joker into the final escape pod, Shepard is blasted into space and dies via asphyxiation after a suit breach. His/her body is pulled into the orbit of a nearby planet and recovered by Cerberus, who begin the "Lazarus Project" with the sole purpose of bringing Shepard back to life. After two years, Shepard is revived on an operating table and escapes a research station under attack by its own security mechs alongside Cerberus operatives Jacob Taylor and Miranda Lawson.

EVIL LURKS IN THE DARKNESS...

In the small country of Transylvania there is a legend which says that every 100 years the forces of Good mysteriously become weak and the forces of Evil gain a foothold into our world. The evil manifests itself in the form of one of the most feared characters to roam the earth - the vampire Dracula!

Every 100 years Dracula is revived and grows stronger and stronger. His goal is to turn all humanity into creatures of darkness, to be ruled under his iron fist. He has appeared in this world many times, and there are many people who fear that in his next appearance, he may be unstoppable.

There is one group that has always been around to see that Dracula is defeated, the Belmont family. For generations the Belmonts have passed along the secrets and skills of vampire-hunting to the eldest child of the family. While many of the Belmonts have lived peaceful lives without encountering Dracula, they remain prepared. There are occasional skirmishes with lesser monsters, but the Belmont clan has always emerged victorious.

Now, 100 years have passed since the last battle between Dracula and the Belmonts. Transylvanians are reporting mysterious sightings of odd creatures appearing under the cover of darkness. As Spring approaches, the citizens prepare for a traditional celebration.

Unbeknownst to them, an evil group of people is holding a ceremony in the old destroyed abbey outside of town, attempting to revive the Prince of Darkness. As they carry out their ritual a dark cloud descends over the countryside. The sinister group stirs itself into a frenzy of mysterious chanting and pagan dancing, then lightning strikes the abbey. The ground bucks under their feet, and the abbey walls shudder. Once again, Dracula is revived!

It is time once again for Simon Belmont to call forth the powers of good to aid him in his battle. Armed with his mystical whip, his courage and the centuries-old knowledge of Belmont family training, he sets forth on his mission...

Xbox users upgrade to keyboard and mouse and Nintendo Switch games get installed after all. A Hat in Time gets glowing reviews from P2, or at least it would if he could buy a physical copy of it (looking at you Limited Run). Rockstar comes to Switch in the form of an L.A. Noire remake!

Mega Man dominates the Prime and Portable game of the month for September and the new website is up and running like an olympic athlete! 

In our topic we tackle the controversial subject of how to play games. One designer at Nintendo recently said that they have a mentality that they know best how to experience their games and as such they often give you less freedom.

Level 2

Discuss story of the game: 13:15

  • Journey's story is told wordlessly through gameplay and using cutscenes. The player's character begins on a sand dune in a seemingly endless desert. In the far distance looms a large, foreboding mountain with a glowing crevice that splits its peak. As the character approaches the mountain, they find remnants of a once-thriving civilization, eroded by sand over time. Scattered throughout the ruins at the end of each area are stones at which the traveler rests; these stones give the traveler the vision of meeting a larger, white-robed figure in a circular room, with art on the walls describing the rise and fall of the civilization mirroring the player's journey. The player must also contend with the ancient automatons left over from a war which ended the civilization, and which still roam the city looking for intruders.

After going out of Inkopolis to see her parents, Marie returns home to discover both Callie and the Great Zapfish have gone missing.

Welcome to a special MightyQBros podcast celebrating the 20th anniversary of 'Rick V. Day'!

 

On July 18 1997, Eric "MightyQDawg" and his brothers received a very special package in the mail containing a huge lot of SMS games. It was a very exciting day for us, and today, on the 20th anniversary of this momentous event, the MightyQBros get together to reminisce about our days growing up playing video games. Enjoy the podcast!

Gaming Strengths and Weaknesses

CCAnswers: 1:0237

  • @alatinolawyer - pick game franchises that Nintendo and either Sony or MS have to trade and take over (1 each way)
  • @jj19862004 - #TeamCake or #TeamIceCream
  • @MustyHobbit - How do you tackle new (to you) libraries?
  • @k_song - Do you binge listen to a band before seeing them live? After? Currently listening to #BobDylan in anticipation.
  • @FranticSociety - Do you think Nintendo will release a N64 classic next year & Gamecube Classic the year after? What games would you want on them?
  • @RetroPixil - What if any title have you tried with very low expectations of enjoying & ended up loving the entire play through?
  • @MightyQDawg - Given that someone in the CC committed a crime and served jail time, who was it and what was his or her crime?
  • @technodork437 - Is it weird that when I watched P1 blow into his 3DS to dry his waifu that I not only maintained eye contact but kind of liked it

Level 2 16:35

Discuss story of the game: 16:35

Cecil, a dark knight and airship captain from the Kingdom of Baron, begins to outwardly question his king’s order to slaughter a village full of wizards. He does this after slaughtering a village full of wizards. Baron’s king strips Cecil of his command and sends him out on yet another genocidal quest, which makes Cecil snap. After fighting his way through underground tunnels, zombie mountains, and antlion dens, Cecil renounces the way of dark knightdom and becomes a holy paladin.

Over the course of this journey, Cecil discovers that behind King Baron’s strange behavior is a dude named Golbez, who has a grand plan to collect all the world’s crystals and kill everyone. Golbez makes it really, really personal, so Cecil sets out to defeat him, assembling a lineup of quirky party members along the way. Cecil and his party thwart evil dancing dolls, giant walls, and wolves made of fire. Eventually they even go to the moon, because Final Fantasy has always been insane.
