A podcast about videogames

Episode 15: You’ve Got Walkthroughs

Celebrate the production of another mp3 format digital file with us! We’ve been playing Danganronpa 2, Grow Home and Wolfenstein: The New Order. We’ve been prodding our DSs to make sure we ruin a much-loved classical tune for everyone, for all time. And it turns out Matthew has been stalking random strangers in order to complete late-’90s point-and-click adventures. We suspected as much. Plus: SPACE ARK.

  1. Thanks for the torment. It’s not the first time a peripheral has stunted my enjoyment of a fighting game. Tackling Capcom vs. SNK on the Dreamcast with a steering wheel is another, and endless hours on the Gamecube bongos, seeing if it benefited games of Smash Bros.

    It didn’t.

    My nomination for the Space Ark this week is Hitman 2, which I played with the Eyetoy. Just kidding. For some reason, I couldn’t get on with Blood Money or Contracts, but Hitman 2 has some genuinely iconic levels that will stay in the memory forever. The elaborate villa, the famous gun-shed, and the snowy sewer level that felt like an extension of Goldeneye’s Streets. It didn’t feel as tight as Splinter Cell or as scripted as Metal Gear Solid, meaning that once you mastered the game you could have a lot of fun manipulating the enemies.

  2. Are you still doing a capella game tunes if they come your way? Nothing about them in the contact bumf.
    Also, I knew that those peculiar phonecalls were from one of you lot.
