Number 79 - Luigi's Mansion, Kirby's Dream Land, Braid

Number 79 - Luigi's Mansion, Kirby's Dream Land, Braid

This week the lads are all investing in their latest obsession in Konami Pixel Puzzle Collection, whilst Jonathan has been off shaking the Hand of Gilgamech in SteamWorld Quest and Chris has been gearing up for Borderlands 3! All the while, one of the Arsenal fans within the collective have been venting their frustrations in their team’s downward turn in New Star Manager! We also decide to throw around the very hottest of accessible potatoes where we discuss the recent discourse about notoriously difficult games and the potential inclusion of Easy modes.

Meanwhile in the rankings, Minty visits the spectral plain with a very spooky entry, Jonathan takes another adorable trip down memory lane and Chris gets his brain tied in a series of complex and metaphysical knots!

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!

Gathered in the Our Three Cents towers, the boys dissect some revolutionary first-person video games, Chris waves the pixellated flag of an indie game, Jonathan comes to terms with his harrowing freemium game addiction, and Minty goes on a trip down memory lane, a long time ago… far, far away… (insert better Star Wars reference here). This episode is so chock full of succulent detail and rich metaphysics that an art critic would deem it ‘satisfactory’.

Number 96 - Desert Golfing, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Bioshock Infinite

Now that the thrill of being united simply by the love of gaming has worn out, this episode sees us united by geography for the first time ever! With nothing but a table separating us, we have our first mobile game and noodle around the elitism shrouding the platform like a gamer fuel-induced fart, explore the layers of enjoyment of a inter-presenter gift, and gripe about the oft-referenced ‘golden’ age of When Video Games Were Hard. Includes a special appearance from a bumbling woodland friend in potential peril.
