In this episode we take a trip backwards to nostalgia land and remember how we came into gaming, and what games stood out enough to be a permanent part of our lives. Games like Tetris, Roller Coaster Tycoon, early Blizzard titles, and Pokemon.
From Dead Space to Amnesia, we talk about how atmosphere is everything when it comes to the horror genre.
Pokemon is coming to Switch, and I (Jake) am nervous about what it will be. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved the Game Freak Pokemon titles, and I’m worried that the game won’t be properly adapted into the new era. Nate offers some great insight with his Zelda comparisons and we all agreed that if Pokemon could leap forward like Breath of the Wild did, the fans would be happy. I’m not predicting that to happen, however.
Oh, and it’s not cool to hit your friends in the nuts.
Welcome to episode one of The Dpad Press Show! A thought-provoking video game talk show released every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. On it, three friends bring a topic to the table and discuss it until the mana runs dry. We all have different, personal experiences within the gaming industry that have translated into an intimate, funny, and often times divisive relationship with each other. Watch out for Gamebraham, he’ll be creating the divide.
