    Episode 63 Is The First Top 50 Of The Nineties Entrant: Alien Storm

    03/02/2020 Duração: 05min

    To get more content in the feed, I have decided to break out out Top 50 of the Nineties list into separate episodes. The ones that are already done will begin going up soon with new ones to follow. Like the ones already done, these episodes will be pretty loose without much of a script, which is pretty fun. Our first game on the list is Alien Storm! Since my comments on Alien Storm were fairly brief, I didn't know I would be doing this eventually, I also threw in the mailbag portion from this episode, which discussed whether a Playstation Vita is worth buying. We have streamed Alien Storm a few years ago. Instead of a Patreon, consider donating to our Extra Life charity drive. We are raising money for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

    25/11/2019 Duração: 09min

    I was always warded away from Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, but while it is certainly not a great game it is definitely a solid beginner RPG and made sense for the American market when it came out in 1992.
