Deathloop is out this week, and we're excited to talk about it - but first, let's ease in with some a look at five other top-tier time-loop games that came along since we last covered the topic in episode 250. Then it's on to Deathloop, The Artful Escape, WarioWare: Get It Together, last week's PlayStation Showcase, and the game characters you'd wa…
 
Being normal-sized is cool and all, but what if you could - just for a little bit - get really, enormously huge and just stomp all the monsters or whatever who thought they could push you around? This week, Leif Johnson joins us for a look at five games that (temporarily!) grow their heroes to giant size, after which we'll get into FIST: Forged in …
 
With another summer more or less over, this week's show takes a look at five games that used summer camp - a place alternately associated with freedom, fun, or terror, depending on the context - as a backdrop for adventure (or muuuurder)! Then we'll dig into No More Heroes III, Maneater: Truth Quest, Yakuza's creator reportedly leaving Sega, and th…
 
This week marks 30 years(!) since the North American launch of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System - by our measure, one of the best consoles ever. To celebrate, we invited Tony Wilson of Framework back on to talk about five of our favorite characters that debuted on Nintendo's 16-bit monster, after which we shift to Psychonauts 2, Twelve Minut…
 
When it comes to crucibles that test the bonds of friendship or family, few burn hotter than the one where you lock yourselves into a moving vehicle for hours and hours and hours. As summer winds down, we've invited Tony Wilson of Framework for a look at some of the best games built around long road trips, letting us experience the fun and camarade…
 
This week has seen an unusual surge in rodent-related media, with star turns for rat swarms in both The Suicide Squad and Assassin's Creed Valhalla. So this week, PNB's TL Foster joins us for a look at five games that featured unstoppable gnawing rat hordes, after which we'll jump into Axiom Verge 2, AC Valhalla's rat-infested The Siege of Paris ex…
 
Only a few big-name game developers are generally seen as "auteurs" — creators with authorial control over (and who get most of the credit for) the games they make. Every so often, one of them strikes out on their own with a bold new project that gets a lot of people excited... and then falls flat on launch. This week, Steve Guntli of Ultra 64 and …
 
Neo: The World Ends With You is out this week, giving us the first completely new TWEWY since the DS original, as well as an excuse to revisit Shibuya, one of Tokyo's coolest neighborhoods. Let's celebrate with a look at five other games that let us explore the streets around the Scramble Crossing, after which we'll dig into Death's Door, The Great…
 
With Steam Deck and the OLED Switch vying for preorders last week, now seems like an opportune time to grab Greg Moore for a look back at five handhelds that tried and failed to take on Nintendo, but made us love them just the same. Then we get swept away by Cris Tales, Cotton Reboot, and Death's Door; muse about Netflix entering the game industry;…
 
Donkey Kong, just like the plumber who debuted alongside him in 1981, has expanded far beyond his arcade roots to appear in everything from racers to rhythm games over the years. To celebrate Kong's 40th anniversary, let's take a look at five different genres covered by the ape's impressive oeuvre of games, after which we'll get into Chris' impress…
 
Wise old men who lurk in caves to dispense advice and magical weapons are a trope as old as time – but as far as games go, their heyday was firmly in the ’80s. So this week, three cave-dwelling old men named Mikel, Chris, and Matt impart the wisdom of bearded 8-bit hermits to young hero Robert Beach, on loan from PNB. Once that’s over, we’ll dive i…
 
We've passed the midpoint of the year, so with help from Alex Faciane of Chilluminati and Super Beard Bros, it's time to look back at five games that did the most to light up our first six months of 2021. Then we'll dig into Scarlet Nexus, Cruelty Squad, some interesting Sony rumors and acquisitions, and the long-neglected EA properties you hope to…
 
Any fictional feud that goes on long enough is bound, sooner or later, to be put on hold for an episode where the hero and villain team up to survive or fight a greater enemy. And this week, PNB's TL Foster joins us for a look at five games where long-established archnemeses (briefly) put aside their differences and worked together. Then we'll dive…
 
E3 came back! Holy crap! And don't worry, we'll get deep in the weeds about it on this week's show, but first we welcome PNB's Brendan Hesse and take a look at our favorite episodes of Conan O'Brien's Clueless Gamer, which recently took its last gasp. Then it's on to Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, a MASSIVE spate …
 
We've always been great fans of so-called trash pandas at VGA, so when this week's release of Backbone cast one as a down-on-his-luck detective, we indulged our love of raccoons with a Top 5 about games that let you play as them. Then it's on to Chivalry II, the resurfacing of Playdate, Yuji Naka leaving Square Enix, and the most valuable games in …
 
This week, we stumbled onto PriceCharting.com - a huge database of videogame resale values - and thought it'd be fun to invite retro specialists Steve Guntli and Woody Ciskowski (of Wii Universe) to talk about which (non-sports, non-game show) games PriceCharting thinks are worth the least on various platforms. Then we'll shift to Wonder Boy: Asha …
