Ep. 34: The Urgency of Repentance

The grudge is very much alive as Josh and Emily continue to disagree about how to navigate the ethics of cooperative games. But if there is anything that can bring them back together it's great tunes, nostalgic testimonials, and M.C. Hammer in a viking hat.

  1. I always get giddy when you play one of my recommendation submissions. I totally agree with Emily that the Lost Vikings is much much easier as a solo endeavor...

    1. I forgot to say it in the episode, but I absolutely loved your comment about attempting a level for the 100th time. I laughed out loud the first time I read it. SO. TRUE.

  2. Just to avoid any misunderstanding, when I said the only difference between the Game Gear and the Master System was the GG's ability to play stereo, I was referring specifically to the sound chip. The Master System and Game Gear(and Genesis) used the Texas Instruments SN76489A chip(actually it was a clone of that chip so it could be integrated into their display processors as a space and cost saving measure).

    It's the same chip, but the GG has an option to pan voices left or right.

    Regarding Resident Evil: Code Veronica, that has got to be one of the most depressing games ever made. I love the graphics on it, but that game just bleeds despair. Even the safe room music just feels hopeless. I played about halfway through, and I had to quit. It wasn't scary so much as it made me want to dig a deep hole and throw myself into it.

    Oh my gosh, that Gungrave track was the bees' knees! It totally reminded me of "Another Way to Die", by Jack Black and Alicia Keys, written as the intro track to Quantum of Solace. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RudiraIFhU Check it out, and let me know if you agree.

    1. Geez......I did it again. I meant Jack WHITE, not jack black.

  3. I just wanted to issue a small correction regarding a joke Josh made in the episode. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who's members are commonly referred to as Mormons stopped the practice of polygamy in 1890 after it became illegal in the United States. Though some splinter groups maintain the practice, members of the LDS Church who enter into the practice are excommunicated.
