Number 69 - Street Racer, Rocket Knight Adventures, Sonic 3D Blast

Number 69 - Street Racer, Rocket Knight Adventures, Sonic 3D Blast

Three more games. 
And good ones at that!

Punch your mates (or your AI mates if you find yourself riding solo) in an early competitor to Super Mario Kart with Minty, zip around as an Opossum who finds itself adorned recklessly with a rocket propulsion system atop its back with Chris, and look quizzical at Sonic's roughshod attempt at an isometric adventure game with Jonathan.

Additionally, enjoy a discussion on veritable hot potatoes: videogame violence, uncouth youth, and digital literacy; some extremely late to the party views on Playdead's Inside; the perils of Kickstarter funded independent games; and technobabble that fuelled the 16-bit console wars!

And all of that within a spritely 32 minutes?! YES!

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.
