Episode 122: Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross excoriate Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.

This episode isn't for the faint of heart... What started out as a well-intentioned desire to talk about a beloved action-adventure game turned into a hit piece against an entire era and genre of games. But we cite our sources, and go to great pains to remind you: Just because we don't like this game doesn't mean we don't like you.


Episode 120: Mega Man Legends

Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross respectfully disagree about Mega Man Legends.

It's the first fully 3D Mega Man game, but it doesn't take a lot of cues from the series that preceded it. You spend most of your time dungeon crawling, but the interesting stuff happens when you're just kickin' it in the city. It rests firmly in the "awkward teenage years" of the PSX. It's Mega Man Legends.


Episode 46: Mario Golf / Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2

Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross chip into a kickflip to talk about both Mario Golf and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2.

We were originally going to talk about Mario Golf 64, but it wasn't robust enough. So, in a first for the show, we expanded our discussion to the entire series. Our conclusion is that it isn't Mario enough, and it isn't golf enough.

Boy do we hope you like music, because the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater discussion is littered with it. There's little to dislike about this awesome entry in a mostly bad series. Bring the noise.

Episode 42: Resident Evil 2

Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross experience an outbreak of positive opionions toward Resident Evil 2.

Thousands have died, but don't worry... they're back again. Raccoon City is overrun with zombies and the ultimate bioweapon is on the loose. We join a biker girl and a rookie cop as they uncover a massive conspiracy, in what is one of the best games we've played for the show so far.

Episode 41: Final Fantasy Tactics (Part 2)

Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross summon up the courage to talk about the last half of Final Fantasy Tactics.

Ramza is a heretic, and the political intrigue we once knew is being replaced slowly by demon possession. FFT is still an amazing game that we would recommend, but its back nine is decidedly inferior to the front.
