More Setsuna Screens

Another quick post as I’m busy watching the NALCS semi-final matches for today, and I don’t want to miss anything! I’ve been trying to wrap up I Am Setsuna, and have made further progress into the game since the last time I posted about it. I’d guess I’m nearing the end, but that isn’t for certain. I can’t be assed to actually see how much further I have to go, but I’ve been enjoying the game. It’s certainly not a challenging title, and is perfect for playing while lying in bed prior to crashing out. I’ve enjoyed the story so far, and though it’s no Chrono Trigger (or classic JRPG for that matter — I still believe the classics are better titles) it still captures just enough of that era’s magic to keep me playing it. I know once I’ve finished it will be uninstalled and I’ll no longer care about it, but I still feel like it was a worthy investment, even at $40.

The following gallery is likely to contain some spoilers, I’ve basically just shared moments from the playthrough here, without commentary. I think the game looks great given their aims, and it’s been a fun diversion from other more serious titles I’ve been playing as of late. I highly recommend it to JRPG fans, just don’t try to put it on a pedestal before you try it out.

Couch Podtatoes Episode 98: Exploration

CP4

Welcome back to the show everyone! This week, Izzy’s been playing the hell out of No Man’s Sky, and Eri has been knee deep in Starbound, both of which are exploration focused games. We dive into what makes up a game that is exploration focused, what the strengths and weakness are, and how they might improve in the future. As usual we touch on many different titles, systems and mechanics and weave in our signature potty-mouthed humor. Come on a journey with us!

Sick of No Man’s Sky?

Are you sick of hearing about No Man’s Sky yet?

That’s too bad, because I’ve got more to share! I’ve put some more time into the game, as I mentioned I’ve been doing some streaming as well. I posted a full, un-cut stream onto my YouTube channel, and thought I’d copy/paste that here for those of you who missed it.

It’s been a blast exploring this procedurally generated universe, and now that the PC version is out, it seems that this game is the talk of the community. It’s not like we thought it would be any different, many of us have been hyped for the game for a couple of years now since we first learned about it. Eventually we’ll move on to new games, but this is the new hotness now, and there’s so much to share! I’ve got a few more cool screens for y’all to gawk at as well, but that’s all I really have for you guys today. We’re going to be recording a new episode of Couch Podtatoes in a few hours, and yeah, we’re going to be talking about this game and more about exploration concepts.  So keep an eye out for that, and happy exploring to those of you who are currently playing this awesome title!

No Man’s Sky Screens (So Far)

Just a quickie post. I wanted to throw some screens of this gorgeous game out there for the masses. Also, I’m streaming No Man’s Sky here and there on my Twitch channel. You should throw me a follow so you know when!

Couch Podtatoes Episode 97: Relegation

CP4

Hey guys and gals! Sorry I’m late pushing this episode out, real life (and No Man’s Sky) have been kicking my ass lately when it comes to having any free time! Eri and I have super conflicting schedules lately so I apologize for that. We’re getting together in a couple days to put together another episode though, so no harm no foul right?

So this week I go it alone, and I’m talking about a recent esports scandal, the way League of Legends’ relegation system works, and how that could be applied to other professional sports. So yeah, if you aren’t into those types of things, you probably won’t be really interested in this discussion, but it’s only 20 minutes, so maybe you’ll be surprised. I don’t know. Either way, I thought it was a thought provoking topic and would love some feedback on it!
