VVG Show 15 – Operation Rainfall, Xenoblade Chronicles

We are back and it is 2016! We revive the final episode of our Operation Rainfall trilogy – first recorded in early 2016 – for your listening pleasure. Better late than never, right? Right…? Let’s hope so. In this episode, we discuss the epic Wii-exclusive Japanese RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles. First off, Adrian confronts Maya’s unhealthy fangirl obsession with the evils of the game’s romance plot. You too will learn what the Twilight series and Xenoblade Chronicles share in common. We go on to discuss (and imitate) the game’s English voice acting, and compare the various Operation Rainfall titles before returning once more to Shelia.

Please be warned that, while we don’t go deeply into Xenoblade’s plot proper, there are (romance-related) spoilers discussed. What a bunch of jokers!

VVG Show 14 – Operation Rainfall, Pandora’s Tower

Adrian and Maya return to the world of Operation Rainfall in this short episode. And yes, you can chalk the speedy discussion up to Maya, who takes a turn as host for the first time. This time around it’s Pandora’s Tower, a dungeon crawler for Wii sporting everyone’s favourites: anime protagonists, big chains, gross displays of flesh-eating, giant bosses, and dating sim elements! Interesting? That’s an understatement. Like our The Last Story episode, expect a few minor spoilers but nothing major.

Next episode is the conclusion of the Operation Rainfall series, with a special show dedicated entirely to Xenoblade Chronicles – as if we hadn’t done this game to death already! My predictions are heaps of praise, followed by impressions of the characters’ voices, lots of impressions. Right now you’re thinking, “man, what a bunch of jokers!“, but regardless, if we are really feeling it in that moment then there’ll be no choice other than to press on, and on, and on.

VVG Show 12 – Scientifically Verified Best Games of All-Time

We actually recorded this back during Halloween, not that it’s a particularly horror-themed show. This is our follow-up to last episode’s discussion of best ever gaming lists, as we dedicate 40 minutes to discussing our Best Games Ever of All-Time. Things get a bit confusing – is it a top 5? A top 10? How many lists are we doing? Are we combining them? – but somehow we fumble through to present our top 5 best games, followed by our top 5 favourite games. Which games will turn out on top?! All will be revealed… (Click “continue reading” to find our full lists for reference!)

VVG Show 11 – Listmania

In this podcast, the 11th episode of the Very Very Gaming Show, we dedicate 25 minutes to discussing the thinking behind All-Time Greatest Videogame Lists. What are they there for anyway? Are they a good idea? Do they work? All these and more questions will be pondered in this episode, inspired by a recent post on this topic by our blogging friend, Wizard Dojo. And just in case you were wondering whether the mere invocation of Four Swords Adventures on Gamecube could literally set alarm bells ringing, this episode says yes. Bonus: microphones that make you want to bone?!

Very Very Gaming Show – Episode 8

This episode we talk about one of our all-time favourite games, Project Zero (aka Fatal Frame) 3. If you’re a horror fan and you haven’t tried this series, it comes highly recommended – see here for a good intro/overview. For this episode, Maya asks the question: is Project Zero 3 the most feminist game ever? “Yes”, she says, even with a gratuitous shower scene…”still yes”. Minor spoilers.
