Yeah, they didn't like metroid prime, sacrifice, metroid fusion, legacy of kain or EBA, though they always give legitimate reasons for doing so and give them an honest try.

>Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross grind Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee to a pulp.

>Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee is a puzzle platformer that was revered in its time for its beautiful graphics, excellent sound, and abundant character. Unfortunately, its trial-and-error nature hasn’t aged well. This is possibly the most negative we’ve ever gotten about a game.

Ugh I don't think so. For starters: puzzle platformer? How clueless do you need to be to call it that? Trial-and-error gameplay hasn't aged well? I'm going to venture a guess that listening to them will be a massive waste of time.

Retronauts recently celebrated their 10th anniversary last month I think.

>> No.3672309


I recently played through both 2d Oddworld games. There were no puzzles. You never try to figure out what to do, because it's always readily apparent. The gameplay is about trying to execute a certain sequence of movements until the next checkpoint. There is no difficulty in figuring out this sequence, only in making it happen. Calling Oddworld a "puzzle platformer" is like calling Another World or Prince of Persia a "puzzle platformer".

When it comes to gameplay, you may like it or not, but the remark about it "not having aged well" is dumb. The only times some element of the game can be sensibly called "outdated" is when some other, later games have improved upon it. Interface can be outdated, graphics can be outdated, control schemes can be outdated, but the whole idea behing gameplay cannot be outdated, it's nonsensical to say so.

frankly just getting the genre name "cinematic platformer" wrong lends the podcast no favors.

I think the problem is they did it in the same episode as rhythm heaven, neither have played EBA before and expected rhythm heaven. They loved the aesthetic, but they got their asses kicked when they realised they couldn't win purely by listening to the beat, and need some hand eye coordination. They barely scratched through easy mode, and apparently only liked 3 of the missions. Oh, and they hated 90% of the song choice.

I know it sounds kinda shitty, but I really do encourage listening to the episode, as someone who loved EBA in his teens, I do sorta have a nostalgia for it, and hearing a different perspective was neat

The two biggest factors were 1. Rhythm heaven is more beat based while EBA requires Hand eye coordination (inb4 they had to git gud).

The best gaming podcast I ever heard was Video Games Newspaper, which was a truly objective video game review show. Unfortunately it's no longer with us, but when I think of objective game reviews, reviews without bias, I think of VG Newspaper. It was a cut above at a time when the industry was being bogged down by bias and personal interest. I needed that in my life.

>No such thing as objective reviews without bias

That's why I only listen to robot reviewers that detach themselves from emotions.

>> No.3710541

That's exactly right, there is no review without personal bias.

The problem is when reviewers blatantly ignore their biases and let it effect the review.

I've always said you should find a reviewer that you can sync up with and have similar tastes too. That way if they say they like X game from a genre that neither of you are huge fans of, it may be worth checking out.

The problem is most reviewers these days are:
>Bad at what they do
>Unprofessional, and have either no standards or think they have good standards but their content is actually garbage
>Let their shitty useless opinions and thin skin ruin their content
Look at TotalBiscuit for a shining example of this. He's a reviewer, but he claims his reviews are "first looks" as a shield to actually not have to have correct opinions. When you make a video responding to fans criticisms and dismissing valid criticisms using that as a defense it's disgusting.
>Focus less on informative reviews, and more bad comedy
AngryJoe and ProJared are really, really bad offenders of this. AngryJoe has absolutely atrocious comedic timing.

>Focus too much on in depth reviews that include heavy spoilers or essentially make the game not even worth playing
Even the smaller guys like Joseph Anderson are guilty of this. His SOMA review is good, but now I have no need to play it since I got the entire jist of the game in that video.

I couldn't even tell you who the reviewers are at IGN, Gamespot, and the other big review sites since they've seemed to just dissipate and it's a new guy every review. I used to know the guys doing the reviews on the big sites and could assert if their opinions were valid or not.

A good podcast generally does have a loose format and bulletpoints, but as a listener if you have cognitively aware of that workflow they aren't doing a very good job.

Comedy Bang Bang is a great example of this, the show is segmented and obviously has a level of pre planning but flows really well and has great improvisational comedy, as well as having amazing chemistry between the comedians on the show.

If you want an example of a podcast that doesn't work go listen to blow hard on the smodcast network, awful chemistry and just doesn't flow properly, they often grind to a halt to keep the show on track, just really doesn't work.

Maybe I'm just not as sensitive to it, but i listened to the WoFF episode, the recent ones on Never Winter Nights 2 and they weren't that political at all. In fact the most recent episode went on a pretty tame tangent on why its shitty to TOLD YA SO people. The game in question is one that deals with morality on a micro and marco scale so the conversations on politics and ethics aren't so out of place like they might be on an episode of Kirby or Mario etc.

If you had listened to video game Newspaper, you would have seen the light. It was truly objective. All these Polygon kiddos saying that gaming news always has bias and is always political, they need to enlighten themselves with Video Game Newspaper.

Actual recording shouldn't be more than an hour or so if you have people who can stay on topic.

Sure, if you're doing it "right" it should take more than an hour, most podcasts don't bother.

What you need to make a good podcast
>Establish topic beforehand
>List of talking points about the topic, distribute it to member so they know
>Record, if people go off topic you need someone to moderate and bring it back
>Edit out the garbage, the pauses where no ones talking or fact checking, any coughing or things of that nature.

Helps to take notes during the recording for time stamps just so it makes editing faster.

It should take -maybe- 4 hours total to do a 1 hour podcast, and that's absolutely long, especially considering that includes listening to the whole recording a second time.

I'm honestly inclined to believe this. The hardest part of a podcast is finding competent people to do it with. The actual content of the podcast is easy if you have a theme or structure and you have people who aren't autistic.

I'm sorry for being confrontational about it. It's kind of a sore topic for me.

You're right on the money about your estimate - though when I was on a show, ours ran long, so it would be anywhere between 2 and 3 hours for a 90 minute podcast. The biggest issue was that everyone lived in a different part of the world, so that was a bitch coordinating. That, and one of the things that led me to quit was that there was one person who was always late, and a lot of the time we'd end up having to reschedule.

I have some people that I would love to record with but they don't want to do it. What I'm currently running into is that I'm trying to do a solo one, and to be honest I'm so burned out every day from work that I end up putting it off. There's a lot of little things I took for granted that other people did/took care of as well, like the hosting shit. Not a big deal, but little annoying things.

In the case of my former show, me and the guy that started the podcast had jobs, everyone else was either in college or living off their parents.

There are many retro game podcasts out there but I only like WOFF and sometimes retronauts because most of the time retro game podcasts (or rather anything related to retro gaming) have this saccharine air to them that I don't like. They're too reverent to classic games (a few Three Moves Ahead hosts have this problem, but not the main ones). This is one of the reasons why I don't visit many threads on /vr/ except for those that allow discussion on modern titles, like the romhack thread and the Doom thread.

While most retrospective media looks back at old games and reminisce, WOFF analyzes old games through modern lenses. It inspires intelligent observation.
