Making Sense of Shenmue 3

How well Shenmue 3 is or is not doing depends on who you ask, what translation you’re reading, which numbers you look at, and what you think the word “production” means. Or something. Here’s an attempt to make sense of probably the most multi-faceted controversies going around these days.

Last week on the TOVG Podcast, we recount the Konami takedown experience, the lasting appeal of WoW, and the kickstarting appeal of Igivania: http://www.thatonevideogamer.com/category/podcasts/tovg-podcast/

Konami vs. The Internet: A Follow-Up

In sum: Konami couldn’t properly take down my video because they had provided no explanation why they would need to take down my video. YouTube stepped in for the very first time and said “dude, stop.” Polygon’s lawyer thinks I’m in the clear. There were Konami games here. They’re gone now.

This video uses the tracks “Twisted” and “Highlight Reel” from incompitech.org.

 

Last week on the podcast, we talked about Nintendo theme parks, Samus hugs, mod bans, and five nights four: http://www.thatonevideogamer.com/featured/the-tovg-podcast-48-nintendoland/

Review: Broken Age

Of course, I’m far too mature and sophisticated for this baby game. Humph.

Note: Version reviewed was PS4

Review: Crypt of the NecroDancer

New, new, neeeeeew! I demand new control schemes to satiate my ceaseless desire for innovation!

Crypt of the NecroDancer is on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/247080/

George and friends talk vomiting, last week’s delay, Deus Ex and your $25 class-action PS Vita reward on the TOVG podcast: http://www.thatonevideogamer.com/podcasts/the-tovg-podcast-45-dry-george/

Bloodborne and H.P. Lovecraft (Spoilers!)

Shoggoths, tentacles and sanity meters. Let’s see how much Lovecraft there is in Bloodborne!

Warning: this video spoils pretty much everything. Almost all the endings, optional bosses, monsters, item descriptions. Everything.

A free anthology of Lovecraft stories can be found here. I reccomend starting with Call of Cthulhu, then Innsmouth, then the Mountains of Madness: http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0600031h.html

Review: Axiom Verge

At the time of uploading, Axiom Verge is only available on the PS4 on the PSN Store here: https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/axiom-verge/cid=UP2149-CUSA01230_00-AXIOMVERGE001PS4

Due to indie game funding politics, it’ll be coming to PC and other platforms around “May”

Review: Pillars of Eternity

Disclaimer: One time at Dragon Con I had a soda with Chris Avellone and he said I was a cool dude for playing 250 hours of New Vegas.
