Number 72 - Metroid Fusion, Mario Golf, Kirby's Epic Yarn

Number 72 - Metroid Fusion, Mario Golf, Kirby's Epic Yarn

Congratulations on arriving at the start of another week! Whether or not you have much time for games yourself, listen to the boys recommend the best way to stuff 30 minute windows of stolen gaming time, wax lyrical over the pedagogical approach Nintendo have taken with Super Mario Maker 2’s story mode, before settling in for another esoteric trio of video games linked only by their matching places on three distinct numerical lists.

Jonathan extols the virtue of doing a lot with a little on the Gameboy Advance’s diminutive screen; Chris details the outfit that saw him sneered at when attempting to master the Happy Gilmore swing at a local driving range; and Minty gets all tangled in pastel coloured yarn.

Also: an 'I Love You' present, an abrasive impression of a British children's TV institution, and at least one word that only Minty can comfortably wield in day to day life.

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!

This week, in a total car crash of an episode, Chris burns out, Minty pokes a small boy with a dream and Jonathan takes a thoroughly leisurely stroll down memory lane - a lane lined with cows, turnips and Christmas disappointment! Elsewhere, we all get our Picross on thanks to Konami’s new mobile game, Minty tries his hand at Cuphead, and Jonathan sees Image & Form knock yet another genre out of the park first time in their new RPG, SteamWorld Quest!

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.
