Procedurally generated content is not my favorite solution to level design. But when dealing with concepts that extend well beyond the usual scope, it’s unavoidable. No Man Sky is a good example, which essentially promises the infinite universe as a playground. Strange Telephone doesn’t attempt anything so extreme, though asks a similarly ambitious question – What if dialing a phone number would transport you to another world?
This week I talk about the recently announced Valkyria Chronicles 4 and The Seven Deadly Sins Knights of Britannia . I also attempt to talk about The Closers and fail.
This week I talk about Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation as well as using the DMM Games service.
Yoshi has had it rough. Most will point to Yoshi’s Island as the pinnacle of the series. But even with excluding the puzzle games, there’s one other game I think every fan should spend at least some time with.

This week I talk about Your Four Knight Princess Training Story, Destiny Child and a little bit of Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet.
Note: I’m the opposite of an exercising expert. Don’t be a dumbass like me and say “This is fine and OK until I get hurt.” Probably actually ask someone who knows what they’re talking about.

Exercising is hard. It takes a lot of time and dedication. Without the right mindset, it can be almost impossible to keep up with. The same can be said of some older RPGs. While they have their time and place in video game history, a straight forward turn-based combat system can feel like a slog. There’s often limited story telling and more of a focus on wandering aimlessly in a world while grinding.
I am far from the first person, but in recent years I made a commitment to tackle these kind of games and exercising at the same time.
This week I talk about the publisher provided game coverage as well as some general Final Fantasy XI mobile chatter.

Over the course of my 27 years, I’ve put a lot of time into competitive shooters with probably over 200 hours each in Quake 2, Tribes, Battlefield 1942, the original Call of Duty, S4 League, Splatoon and Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds. Whenever I stumble across something that feels new and fresh is generally when I’ll invest at least a couple of months of time into it.
So I am a little disappointed that it seems like even if I wanted to dump loads of time into Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, it seems the playerbase won’t be around long enough to do so. It’s a game that surprisingly has great mechanics and pacing that I haven’t seen in other shooters, but, even a month after launch, it can be difficult to find a match.
