Barrel Roll #169 – “Panda Games Are Their Own Genre”

barrel-roll-169-pandas-are-their-own-genre

After a brief hiatus, the Barrel Roll podcast is back to their old tricks. Jesse, Jonah, Wes, and Adam Milecki return for an in depth discussion of the burgeoning panda genre and what it brings to the table.

Jonah finally dips into Tokyo Jungle to try out its panda-related DLC. Jesse fights pandas with increasingly elaborate costumes in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition. Adam shares his experience with Hotline Miami… which might have a panda mask in it or something (maybe). And Wes travels into peoples’ memories (which might have pandas in them) while playing To the Moon.

The crew also talks about the Wii U, Nintendo Land, Street Fighter X Mega Man, Far Cry 3, Hitman Absolution, Red Rogue, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown‘s multiplayer mode.

All this and more on episode #169 of the Barrel Roll Podcast, “Panda Games Are Their Own Genre”.

Listen to the Mega Man Network’s 25th Anniversary Podcast

0

megacast-25thThe Mega Man Network’s podcast has been a little infrequent as of late. I should know (I host it). But now that the 25th Anniversary celebration is well underway, getting the crew back together became a must.

We didn’t just get our old crew, though. We also invited Capcom’s Mega Man aficionados, Brett Elston and Greg Moore. We talk about the recently released Street Fighter X Mega Man and a slew of other random things that may include a Capcom FMV game on the original PlayStation.

Head over to the Mega Man Network to grab the episode.

Barrel Roll Episode 168 - Can you marry a cat?

After a brief hiatus, the Barrel Roll podcast is back! We’re here to ask the hard hitting questions about controversial games like Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Does it let you marry cats and koalas? You’ll have to listen to find out.

Jesse, Mike, and Adam Anania manage to set aside their animal related differences long enough to talk about all the latest video games… like a real ass pinball machine. Jesse and Mike discuss their time with Halo 4 and Smartglass. Adam tells us why Assassin’s Creed 3 makes him consider quitting the series entirely. And we talk all manner of other games including Code of Princess, Paper Mario Sticker Star, Mechwarrior Online, and Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion.

All this (and ramen discussion) on episode #168 of the Barrel Roll Podcast, “How Many Cats & Koalas Have You Married?”

Barrel Roll #167 - "Omega Tom Hanks"

Lock the doors, board up the windows, and hide your loved ones. Omega Tom Hanks is coming to town and he’s bringing his entire balance-destroying moveset with him.

Before the Hanksocalypse, Jesse Gregory, Adam Milecki, and Mike Bachmann huddled together to chat about video games for their last moments on Earth. Adam and Jesse obsess over XCOM: Enemy Unknown and spread a little more Tokyo Jungle love (this time with co-op!). Mike gives us the lowdown on EA Origin’s coupon debacle while telling us about Mugen, the open fighting engine that’s over a decade old.

All this and other random crap on Barrel Roll #167 – “Omega Tom Hanks”.

Barrel Roll #166 – “The Duke of Jerk”

Barrel Roll Podcast #166 - The Duke of Jerk

A calamity has struck. The human race as we know it seems to have disappeared. That is, except for three resourceful podcasters. How long can they survive before being consumed by swarms of wild pomeranians?

Jonah, Jesse, and Adam Anania pool their resources to survive this harsh future while also managing to talk about video games. Adam went to TGS to try out Earth Defense Force 4 and Rockman Xover before heading home with Monster Hunter 3G (soon to be 3 Ultimate), The Denpa Men, and the enhanced vita port of Earth Defense Force 2017. Jonah gets his loot on with Torchlight 2 and Borderlands 2. Jesse gets welcomed to the jungle with Tokyo Jungle and Rayman Jungle Run. And the brothers Gregory have a great time with Dead or Alive 5 while simultaneously swallowing the embarrassment induced by its characters.

All this along with nerd stalkers, Dragon’s Dogma anecdotes, and more on episode #166 of Barrel Roll: “The Duke of Jerk”.

Barrel Roll #165 – “PAX Prime Roundup 2012″

2

On the much delayed one-hundred and sixty-fifth episode of Barrel Roll, Jesse and Jonah are joined by Adam to discuss all the stuff they played way back a few weeks ago at PAX Prime 2012. This includes such hot jams as Lost Planet 3Rayman Legends, and The Wonderful 101. There is also a lot of talk about the Wii U, because that is what all the hip kids are talking about these days.

In our second segment, Jonah brings FTL: Faster than Light to the table. It’s a roguelike on a space ship and he thought it was pretty good. Adam and Jesse finally get a chance to chat about their New Super Mario Bros. 2 impressions. Adam also brings a strange rhythm game to mix titled HarmoKnight.

All this plus lots more on Barrel Roll #165, “PAX Prime 2012 Roundup”.

Barrel Roll #164 – “PAX Prequel”

1

PAX happened last weekend. You’ve seen the epic conclusion of the long running series, but what happened before? What is the origin story? How did we get our super powers? The untold story is about to be told!

Actually, we just didn’t have time to edit our pre-PAX podcast before actually going to PAX. Jonah is finally back and joins Jesse to talk about the long awaited release of The Last Story. Jesse shares his thoughts on the unlikely fighter that happens to be an RPG sequel, Persona 4 Arena. Jonah finally plays the wonderful Gravity Rush. And Adam Anania may or may not show up (spoiler: he never does).

Barrel Roll #163 – “CORG-OUT!”

0

With Jonah still busy moving, it’s up to Jesse, Wes, and prodigal son Russ Walsh to carry on the Barrel Roll podcast spirit. Can they keep things on track? Or will they be doomed to derail each other with discussions of Blitzball and Archie Comics crossover fighters?

Actual video game discussions are (probably) had as Jesse tries to figure out whether or not he likes Deadlight and tells legends of the ultimate neck snap in Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Wes shares his thoughts on 10000000 and Wanderlust. And Russ takes us back in time with the original Bioshock, then further back in time with Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD. Also, Wizorb and the announcement of XCOM: Enemy Unknown multiplayer modes.

Barrel Roll #162 – “Am I the Skull to Your Bulk?”

0

This week on Barrel Roll, Jonah has gone missing and it’s up to Jesse, Adam Milecki, Mike Bachmann, and a mischievous dog named Scooby Doo to uncover the truth. Do these meddling kids have what it takes? Tune in to find out. They might just get some help from a familiar billionaire.

This episode is brought to you by the letter “R”. Adam Milecki flexes his obscurity muscle with discussion of Receiver and the PlayStation 2 strategy title, Ring of Red. Not to be one-upped, Jesse doubles up on rhythm games with Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure (starring Phantom R!) and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy (or is it Theathythm Thinal Thantathy?). Mike talks about Batman games (read: Batman comics) and takes advantage of crazy steam sales with Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.

Stay tuned after the end and you might just hear Mike demonstrate in excruciating detail that he knows way more about Power Rangers lore than the writers of the show. All this and more on episode #162 of Barrel Roll: “Am I the Skull to Your Bulk?”.

Barrel Roll #161 – “Card Battle”

1

After discussion of this year’s crazy Steam Summer Sale, the guys break into what they are really here to talk about… the Ouya? Maybe? I guess that’s a thing.

On the 3DS front, Jesse and Adam teamed up to play through the Diablo-esk Heroes of Ruin demo. Apparently some mean ghost is giving the other ghosts a hard time. They are just trying to go about their regular afterlives, but that jerk keeps on messing with their stuff. It’s up to your bemohawked lion-man hero to save the day.

Jesse finished Gravity Rush and Oniken, and even managed to find the start-to-prison ratio of Final Fantasy XIII-2. In other words, he’s been busy.

Adam got a care package from Jesse which included the 3DS puzzler Crush 3D, which he seems to have some mixed feelings on. Meanwhile Mike, who isn’t the one in Japan, started playing Phantasy Star Online 2, because he needed another addicting loot based game in his life. He also played through Dyad for review.

Jonah got a Vita and while it came with Uncharted: Golden Abyss, he forsook the playing of it after a brief stint to move on to Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable and Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention. Because taking on two 100+ hour RPGS at the same time seemed like a good idea.
