Number 73 - Super Mario Galaxy, DJ Hero, Wario Land II

This week, two games from the Super Mario Extended Universe feature as Jonathan & Minty’s choices, in addition to a literal curveball (rotating disc) from Chris! 

Meanwhile, some things never change - like traffic congestion, pencils and the inevitability of death. Also not changing are our video gaming habits this week: Jonathan’s tackling a Metroidvania indie game, Chris is playing a retro classic and Minty is continuing his tactical adventure through Dead Cells. 

Also, a user question turns the table on another user question, and we discuss what the best movie video games are! Listen to find out if your favourite movie or indeed, your favourite game is mentioned!

This episode is absolutely jam packed with top class video game chat! Talc up, and dive in!

As we reach the quarter mark in our countdown, a phenomenal phenomenon occurs with the first tri-peat of the series with Minty also reflecting on his interesting fictional existence! Elsewhere in this pun-tastic episode, Chris enjoys plunging his way down memory lane with a legendary Disney adventure and Jonathan once again reverts to his dastardly thieving ways! Else-elsewhere we also discuss the cons of retro throwbacks in games, alternative Japanese video game titles, the little known MMEU (Mickey Mouse Extended Universe) and we gain a new mascot in the gloriously-named Granny Rags!

In the most punctuated episode of Our Three Cents yet, Chris becomes an accountant, Jonathan becomes an anarchist and Minty becomes an antagonist!

Also, slammed own on the Our Three Cents round table of discussion by a Twitter fan is the matter of video game movies. Coming hot on the heels of our thoughts on Detective Pikachu, we dive into a deep dissection of literally EVERY video game cinematic adaptation ever made and those to come! 

Number 77 - Fantasy Life, Super Hexagon, Paper Mario: Color Splash

Number 77 - Fantasy Life, Super Hexagon, Paper Mario: Color Splash

This week on Our Three Cents, Jonathan recalls how he lived out his best fantasy life in deepest Africa, Chris descends into a hypnotic claustrophobic nightmare to pass some time, and find out why Color Splash is the Titanic of the Paper Mario series.

Elsewhere, Jonathan has gone on an Indie Game spree tackling a series of games including a small, bespectacled scientist, a big ol’ face-rock and electrified tentacled atrocities. Chris had a few small weeps experiencing an Old Man’s Journey and Minty has been having a wonderfully idyllic time randomly naming a variety of chickens!

This week on Our Three Cents, Minty joins in the Dead Cells fun, just as Jonathan is moving on to playing, what seems like literally, all the other games - ping-ponging from the ludicrously unchallenging Yoshi’s Crafted World to the sadistically-designed Shakira: Hips Lie Twice, and covering a myriad of other recent releases in between! Meanwhile Chris is getting his retro on with some lovely electro-synth mobile pinball action! The chaps also discuss their 82nd favourite video games of all time featuring such classic video-game tropes as shallow tools, pickup trucks, strategic anxiety and the origins of grinding! Plus our dear old friend, nominative determinism rears their appropriately-named head - gender un-assumed.

This week on Our Three Cents, sickness (rotten colds) abound with Minty and Jonathan delivering the episode from their respective death beds (not actually dying). Thankfully, Chris is on hand to bring the energy and enthusiasm, divulging some deeply personal pudding-related predilections, revealing some fascinatingly pedantic trivial tidbits, and mourning the untamed spirit of Kurt Cobain. All the while in their paracetamol-induced hazes, the chaps concoct the concept for a Super Crash Bros racing compilation! Bon.

Number 86 - Angry Birds Trilogy, Dragon Age Origins, Counter Strike: Condition Zero

Number 86 - Angry Birds Trilogy, Dragon Age Origins, Counter Strike: Condition Zero

In a real trip down memory lane, this week the chaps recount all manner of recollections from hungover poolside birds, astrally-projected book clouds, and shouting incendiary warnings during vintage old-school threesomes! Plus Chris embarks on a new RPG to try and finish in the next 10 years, find out what’s hiding in Minty’s chest, and witness Jonathan suffering with a severe case of Dead Cells! It’s classic Our Three Cents.
