RadioRadar+ Podcast 41: Like the velvet velour of a Vincent Valentine costume

Games covered this week: Headlander, Persona Q, Kirby: Planet Robobot

After getting slightly derailed with a discussion about Anthony’s poor life decisions, the GamesRadar+ crew discuss the games they’re hyped for, maybe hyped for, and not hyped for in the coming months. Persona 5, yes; Watch Dogs 2, no.

The team then moves on to some games they’ve been playing recently, including 3DS dungeon crawler Persona Q, Nintendo sleeper hit Kirby: Planet Robobot, and Double Fine’s latest, Headlander. Finally, they take a break from all the games talk to dish on Stranger Things, Netflix’s latest TV series success.

RadioRadar+ Podcast 40: The NES Classic says, “What’s up, everybody?”

Games covered this week: Pokemon Go, NES Classic Edition, I Am Setsuna

Over the past two weeks, Nintendo’s taken the world by storm, once again proving that humanity’s thirst for tiny cartoon monsters and jumping plumbers remains insatiable. The GamesRadar+ crew deftly avoids walking into traffic to discuss the cultural phenomenon that is Pokemon Go, as well as the surprise announcement of the NES Classic Edition – a miniature version of the Nintendo’s first console with 30 games stored inside. David also takes a few minutes to discuss Square Enix’s latest JRPG, I Am Setsuna.

We then ask the community (and ourselves) what single game we’d bring with us if we had to live in an underground bunker for five years.

RadioRadar+ Podcast 39: Don’t call it a comeback

Games covered this week: Zero Time Dilemma, Grand Kingdom, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, Lego Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens

Holy crap, we’re freakin’ back. This week, the GamesRadar+ crew returns to the mics to talk about all sorts of Japanese games, like Zero Time Dilemma, Grand Kingdom, and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, as well as the disappointing bugginess of the otherwise fun Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

And in light of the tragedies over the past few weeks, we take some time to reflect on a few of the games which bring us joy and happiness; the games which help us find a little peace in this crazy world.

RadioRadar+ Podcast 38: Laser Fear

Games covered this week: Street Fighter 5, Layers of Fear, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13

The latest episode of RadioRadar+ weighs in on Street Fighter 5 and its launch package, which some critics have found profoundly lacking in punch. We also peel back the creepy techniques used in the new PT-like horror game, Layers of Fear, and revisit Lightning Returns for old times’ sake.

Also, here’s your spoiler warning for James Bond’s latest outing, Spectre. This episode may ruin the movie for you, though no more than its creators did already.

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.

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.
