RadioRadar+ Podcast 37: New Game Minus

Games covered this week: Firewatch, Unravel, Quantum Break, Final Fantasy … 12?

This week the podcast crew examines the impending hiatus of Assassin’s Creed, the Quantum Break backlash, the burning desire to play Firewatch and what happens when you get a bit wrapped up in the cute little Limbo-like, Unravel.

Anthony also conveys what it’s like to play Final Fantasy 12, years later, as a big ol’ cheater.

Hosts: Ludwig Kietzmann, Sophia Tong, Susan Arendt, Anthony John Agnello

RadioRadar+ Podcast 36: Hyrule HD

Games covered this week: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, XCOM 2, Rusty Lake Hotel, Oxenfree, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The RadioRadar+ crew reports back on Twilight Princess HD – and whether it deserved all that love … or all that hate, depending on who you talk to. Meanwhile, Susan’s still on her cannibal trip (following Tharsis) with a creepy new adventure game, while Anthony finally succumbs to one of the year’s coolest, most enigmatic games: Oxenfree. Maxwell also stops by with some stories about XCOM 2 and some theories on why there’s no console version of it in sight.

Hosts: Ludwig Kietzmann, Susan Arendt, Maxwell McGee, Anthony John Agnello

RadioRadar+ Podcast 35: The Long Division Episode

Games covered this week: The Division, The Witness, Marvel’s Lego Avengers, Resident Evil Zero HD, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

The RadioRadar Crew spends an episode unpacking The Division’s dense New York plague-ground, the wobbly construction of Marvel’s Lego Avengers and whether one of Resident Evil’s oddest games holds up in an HD treatment.  Ludwig finally talks about the ending of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain (don’t worry, there’s a spoiler warning) and Anthony convinces Susan to both watch and never watch Terminator: Genisys.

Hosts: Ludwig Kietzmann, Susan Arendt, Anthony John Agnello

RadioRadar+ Podcast 34: Quiet on Pony Island

It’s Weird Game Week on the RadioRadar+ show, with thorough looks at delightfully off-kilter games like Oxenfree (a teen-infused mystery), Undertale (you’ve probably heard about it by now) and the insidious self-hacking game, Pony Island. The crew also discusses whether self-aware games can go too far, and whether story-focused developers need to take it down a notch in how they communicate with players.

Don’t worry, we lower the Pretension Level by talking about pooping horses too.

Hosts: Ludwig Kietzmann, Ashley Reed, Anthony John Agnello

RadioRadar+ Podcast 33: The MUD Bucket

This week’s episode of RadioRadar+ ponders the agelessness of video game characters. Should they live forever? Should they be allowed to retire with dignity? Should they flaunt Luis Vuitton goods? (Yes, also yes, and … absolutely.)

After that, stay a while and hear about Sophia Tong’s epic history as a former MUD overlord – that’s Multi-User Dungeon, kids.

Hosts: Ludwig Kietzmann, Sophia Tong, David Roberts

RadioRadar+ Podcast 32: When Things Are Big That Should Be Small

The RadioRadar+ show is back after a holiday break, ready to ponder the price of the Oculus Rift and what it could mean for PlayStation VR.

After that: let the spoilers flow through you as we talk about that thing that happened in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, get psyched for the promise of Psychonauts 2, and raise an eyebrow when the discussion inevitably turns to Super Duper Sonic.

RadioRadar+ Podcast 31: Return of the MGS Guy

After a disastrous (but spoiler-free) attempt to review Star Wars: The Force Awakens – without having seen it – the RadioRadar+ crew delve into games that, like Star Wars, have made a triumphant comeback after a tarnished turn or two.

The show also covers what it means for Hideo Kojima to be free, and whether his name might be enough to win over VR skeptics and console fence-sitters.

Hosts: Ludwig Kietzmann, Maxwell McGee, Anthony John Agnello, Lucas Sullivan
