Number 68 - Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse, The End is Nigh, Pokémon FireRed

Number 68 - Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse, The End is Nigh, Pokémon FireRed

This week on Our Three Cents, the chaps tackle another eclectic tryptic of games in the form of a significantly-formative childhood gaming experience featuring a mouse; an expectation-subverting modern platformer featuring a tumour; and an abbreviation-smattered classic RPG remake featuring some running shoes!

Also on the docket for discussion are Chris’ veritable summer-holiday-gaming stampede of activity; Jonathan’s veritable summer-holiday-gaming descent into pure unadulterated wartime bleakness; and Minty’s veritable summer-holiday-gaming instigation of Chris’ robo-dino-phobic beliefs!

More hyphenations than you can shake a stickily-sticky stick at!

Deal with it.

Number 70 - Pokémon UltraSun, Pokémon X, Proteus

Number 70 - Pokémon UltraSun, Pokémon X, Proteus

P-p-pick up a podcast! In this 'p' filled episode the chums embark on a merry hike across seasons, portmanteau'd archipelagos and a facsimile of continental europe. An uncharacteristically raunchy episode, listener discretion is advised (unless you want to be cursed with thinking about a Charmander's naughty bits).

Bonus Level - Summer Special

Bonus Level - Summer Special

Take shelter from the UK's unseasonably warm start to the summer, by allowing the cool, soothing tones of three doofi (doofus; plural) talk sunny, bright weather and sunny, bright games.

Find a comfy spot in the garden, crack open a fizzy pop, then injure your neck as you twist to best utilise the sun's searing rays to illuminate your Gameboy's monochrome screen, sharing all the while in the summer gaming memories of three young men who could probably do with getting outside a bit more.

Football! Progressive rock! Balance boards! Family holidays! It's all here. As well as, of course, the usual nerdy discussion on games past, present and future that we assume you all harbour an insatiable taste for.

BLUE SKIES FOREVER

Bonus Level - E3 2019 Special

Bonus Level - E3 2019 Special

E3, or the Eideo Eames Eonference, has come and gone once again to delight and disappoint swathes of angry entitled nerds. We take a break from our regularly scheduled chat about three games to tackle the mammoth docket of Everything Nintendo Announced, and Whatever That Thing They Wheeled Out Keanu Reeves For was. We discuss each company's approach to showcasing their upcoming releases and, whilst Jonathan attempts to retain some PokéOptimism, Minty is jumping aboard the Pokémon Hate Steam Train (this is a joke that references the setting of the new games by way of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and Minty wishes he’d come up with it when we recorded), and Chris is ready to cross oceans to raise a riot in the Pokémon head office! Come and listen to how we somehow talk about 60 games in 45 minutes!!

Number 78 - Mass Effect, Rhythm Tengoku, Overcooked

This week on Our Three Cents, the birds are singing as we take another eclectic trip down memory lane!

Also featuring Dennis Hopper, and a gorilla covered in roast beef. Boomshakalaka!

Number 82 - Pokémon Snap, SteamWorld Heist, Dragon Quest

Number 82 - Pokémon Snap, SteamWorld Heist, Dragon 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.

Therefore, on this most holy (and importantly, four day) weekend, we offer to you a solemn and reflective Easter special episode, which we hope will help you fully comprehend not only the gravity, but also the jubilation of this observed holiday.

Number 88 - Worms Armageddon, Life is Strange, Pokémon Rumble World

In a jam-packed episode this week, we have our first repeat entry - the chaps are more riddled with Worms than ever before! In a surprising video game industry twist, Tetris is the suddenly the most revolutionary title on the market again - life really is strange! And whilst Minty plays with his suspiciously-designed pocket monsters, Jonathan explains why Blowfish Studio’s Minesweeper Genius is better than Red Dead Redemption 2! Discuss.

Number 97 - Pokémon Stadium, Sonic R, ToeJam and Earl in Panic on Funkatron

The chums converge on a recent release, which sends them off on a session of rampant nostalgia and unanswered questions. Why did Chris’ dad call his Blastoise ‘black cab?’ What did Minty do with a condom when he was ten? Can Jonathan keep this ship afloat? Find out as you listen to three people really hammer home just how thirty-something they all are.
