Happy Birthday Matt!! Oh, and the show is at the following link.

How many times do you replay a game? Practically never, for myself. I think of maybe one or two times I’ve replayed a game. Also, this doesn’t count the whole New Game Plus thing you sometimes find in games. After Arkham Origins, I replayed Arkham Asylum and Arkham City on PC to get both of those at 100%, but I haven’t gone back to any game I can think of to do a replay. Oh, the other exception is when beating it once unlocks a harder or different difficulty. When there’s no change from when you played the game before, do you play it again? And I get the movie comparison or book comparison – going back through something you’ve already experienced allows you to notice other details you might have missed the first time. But man, as much as I’ve revisited things in other mediums, I rarely EVER do it for video games.

What about you?

 

We’ll apparently just let anyone on this show at the following link.

We’ve complained before about grouping up game releases. Usually it’s over the span of a month or a few weeks. It’s not really a complaint we mind having, but it’s still an issue since we usually can’t buy everything we want when it releases much less have the time to enjoy it all either. Then there’s the 27th of October. Nevermind that Shadow Of War releases this week along with The Evil Within 2. Nevermind that South Park releases the week after that. Nevermind that Call Of Duty and Battlefront 2 release just mere weeks after the 27th of October. No, on that day we see the release of Wolfenstein 2, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Destiny 2 on PC, and Super Mario Odyssey. Oh, and by the way, the 27th is also the release of Stranger Things Season 2.

So yeah, I’m going to be busy but it won’t be because I’m buying all those games. I’ll stick to one or MAYBE two of them, but not all. I can’t afford it with either money or time. There’s also the personal rule I have of buying ANYTHING so close to the Black Friday sales week. Just don’t do it, folks. You can be sure Nintendo won’t drop in price on that Mario game, but all the rest are even odds we see them fall at least to $30 within a few weeks and at least for a day.

 

We’re making Matt do all the work at the following link.

We don’t normally play games during the show and there’s a very good reason for that. The best example I can give you is the last hour of this show when we broke out the SNES Classic and Matt played it for the entire hour. Meanwhile, I pretty much just gave commentary or let the folks on the phone speak while I watched and gave snarky comments to Matt while he got his bearings playing StarFox so he could unlock StarFox 2 for me.

This past week saw the release of Cuphead along with a few other high profile titles and October (especially near the end) has a ton as well. And here I am, mostly likely not going to play even half of them. Most of these releases will see price cuts not long after the release with Black Friday and the holidays on the horizon. I’ll be there for Destiny 2 and Mario Odyssey. They both release on the same day so it’ll be interesting to see which one I stick with more (I’m guessing Mario).

Nintendo doesn’t really do deals and price cuts like we see with games like Assassin’s Creed and Shadow Of War/Mordor. And Destiny 2 for PC is something I want to be with on the ground floor if only to get more game time in with my PC friends who might be experiencing the game for the first time. Plus, that 1440p, unlocked framerate, and mouse/keyboard shooting is eye opening compared to how many years I’ve been playing this game on consoles.

Hopefully that keeps me busy for a few months since I don’t see ANYTHING coming after October 27th…for me, anyway.
