Spoony Bard Episode 20: Save the Anime

After the problems with last weeks ‘cast Stark and I felt bad enough to get together and do one in person, and a little over an hour and a half.  This weeks game is the PS1 classic Ape Escape, a game that I knew nothing about and Stark knew only slightly more.  We complain a lot about how we wish that we had played this game when it first came out, and how the controls on it are super dated.  As we normally do we start talking about other things, including the challenge game for this week (Azure Dreams– which you can find article on on this very site!) as well as Hyper Dimension Neptunia.  We also bring up the subject of a test video cast of us playing a game, much like the old Broken Pixels podcast that 1up used to do or even a quick look that Giant Bomb currently does.  It turns out that recording video and audio after almost three hours of drinking isn’t advisable.  The important thing is that we all learned a lesson about making sure that video is being captured at more then 1 frame a second.

Melting faces off with a kind of awesome high rocking power that can only be described through Monster Trucks since 2003. Going through the continuing effort to create new, better, more interesting and joke-funnying content the entire time. I own the site. I know, hard to believe

    Hey, good to hear you talk about my suggestion, I have another one that you guys might have missed on the PS1. Tomba! and the sequel. Its a zanny platformer that seems to have not been very well known. It might be nostalgia coloring my memories but I remember it been pretty fucking sweet. It was also the first game I remember that featured the ability to change the game if you had a save file of the first. It was pretty primitive but it was still new to me at the time. So you better talk about it because you dont have the subscriber base to pissed off one listener. 😛

    • We are always looking for new games to play, so don’t worry about Tomba! we will get to it. We like to announce next weeks game on the off chance that someone wants to either leave a comment about their memories or email us them. Next week is Vagrant Story, but you can expect a Tomba one soon-ish.
