We have very different thoughts on the MS series, my friend, but I do agree that there aren't really bad ones... Aside from 7. 7 just makes me sad.

I hope this video isn't too... well, dry. F&L isn't supposed to be the kind of silliness of Video World, I wanted to make it something that could genuinely be useful or interesting, but I think 33 minutes was pushing my luck. I don't script the F&L shows in advance, everything's just done off the cuff.

Wow, I actually thought it was scripted with a few verbal missteps. Well done!

Ah yes. You're British, so I suspected Michelangelo wouldn't be depicted with nunchaku.

Video World 9 will now probably not be This Week, more likely to be out Tuesday the 30th as I have some last-minute VA I can only work on at the weekend.

It's still August so it counts.

Okay. Can confirm. Video World 9 Wednesday the 31st. Sorry for the slight delay.

I'm at a point now where the episode could be considered "done", but I'm going to use my extra time to add polish and some additional segments.

I watched and liked it. I agree re aesthetics. I think that a bad game can be good if it's got like a good sprite in it or whatever.

Time to play Maniac Miner.

"I will too succeed!"

Nice one. These are always over before I know it, and this one was no different despite the added length.

Speaking of consistency in elements of game design, it's good to know Mutant Nightmare's gameplay is as poor as its graphics. It looks like they reused the sprites from Battle Nexus and threw some chunky black outlines around them.

You make a strong case for Yoshi's New Island. How do you feel about the gyro-control vehicle sections?

SHIT. I totally forgot to mention the motion controls, because they're the best I've ever experienced on the handheld. I actually turned off traditional egg aiming in favour of the gyro throw because it's so smooth and intuitive.

I enjoyed New Island when it first dropped. It was good times, if a little too conservative to the YI mold (prob a good thing after... all the other sequels). I should give it another go. I feel like I need something fun and platformy before DQ7 hits in a couple weeks.

That music though really. I know you said but dang.

I keep putting off replaying Yoshis New Island, but I shouldn't, because it's swell! Downright delectable at times.

I was wondering where the History of Frogs music came from. Thanks!

Good episode. Great to see the History of Frogs come full circle.

You make an interesting case for Gitaroo Man, I've never played it, but that dub does it no favors.

My favorite thing about Gitaroo Man's slapdash localization is that the hero's name is Yuichi, which is stylized as "U-1," since 1 is "ichi" in Japanese. But whoever localized it just took it at face value, so everyone refers to the main character as "Yu-one." The game's narrative can be perplexing as it is, and stuff like that doesn't help.

The game itself is ace, though. If you've played Ouendan or Elite Beat Agents, it's those guys.
