TVG: 2.28 – Genesis and Gaming Chat

Sometimes we here at the Vagabond Gamecast make a concerted effort to have a topic planned ahead of time for discussion so that we can try to spark a conversation with a direction and ensure quality bonding time for you, our audience. Sometimes despite having a topic planned ahead of time, we just let our attention spans run wild like they’ve never ran before. Well, kiddos, here’s one of those times!

Turns out Matt actually had played a video game this time around, so we couldn’t help but spend our whole session (minus the parts where we talk about our beloved home towns in Nova Scotia) nattering about those little electronic gizmos we love so much.  Games we discuss, include: 

  • * Sim City (SNES) 01:15
  • * Ristar (Genesis) 03:00 (We circle around to Ristar several times throughout the episode, it was kind of the inspiration of all digressions)
  • * While discussing Ristar, we discuss in general the Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection on PS3
  • * Shining Force I and II (Genesis) 05:50
  • * We discuss the Genesis in general here too… audio and controllers
  • * Sonic (Genesis) 11:30
  • * Twin Bee (Famicom) 15:00
  • * Blast Processing
  • * Contra Hard Corps (Genesis) 22:00
  • * Rare (The Company) 23:00
  • * Isometric games (Snake Rattle N Roll, Final Fantasy Tactics) 25:00
  • * Free games from Epic 27:00
  • * Hitman vs Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes 28:10
  • * Cyber Shadow vs Link to The Past vs Metroidvanias (Super Metroid vs Metroid Dread vs Samus Returns vs Fusion) 34:30
  • * Xenogears (PS1) 39:50 (As a small digression before returning to the Metroids)
  • * Zelda Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword 46:09
  • * Zelda Tutorial Length
  • * We definitely didn’t discuss Final Fantasy VIII
  • * Shenmue (Dreamcast) 51:20
