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 6

They say better late than never, and here’s the proof! We kick off this week’s episode with a brief chat about a new fandangled console known as the “Wii” – and how creepy it is to encounter the Miis of Owners Past. We then dissect one of the Wii’s cutest offerings at great length: Little King’s Story deserves every minute we spend cooing over its music, innovative gameplay and general weirdness.

The second half sees Black and White anger Maya, Earthbound titillate Adrian, and, finally, Harvest Moon: Magical Melody converting Adrian from derisive farming game critic to intrigued observer of virtual plant watering.

Very Very Gaming Show – Episode 2

We’re back in business – and this time it’s personal. Contra: Shattered Soldier is first on the menu this week, followed by Maya’s new addiction, Civilization II (the PS1 port!). The entire conversation pretty much goes as you’d expect: masochist loves sadistic game, perfectionist-completionist loves controlling the annals of time.

After the break we tackle some community business. We start with rage. Sony!!!! And the blog Why Didn’t I Complete It? is completely to blame for exposing Sony’s ruthless memory card pricing, which develops into a brief history of memory cards. Next on the menu: Japanese vocaloid all-round weirdness, courtesy of one of my favourite blogs, Reset Tears.

And last but not least – we deliver a retrospective of Kenji Eno’s career and and a detailed look at probably his best known title, D, described in Cultural Fragments’ review as ‘a must-play game that also happens to be terrible’. A 3DO, Saturn and PS1 release from 1995/6, D haunts us while making us laugh. In this segment we discuss everything from Eno’s career as a videogame industry bad-boy to the lack of a waist on Laura, D’s “digital actress” protagonist. And did I mention Laura is a cannibal?! Spoilers!

We’re looking for feedback on this episode, so if you have any comments or suggestions, please drop us a comment!
