Ah yes, it is that time of year again– time to start preparing and setting up our participation in Extra Life 2013! Last year we participated for the first time ever and managed to play video games for 24 hours straight while people watched us live over the internet. This year, it’s going to be the same deal only BIGGER, BADDER, and BETTER than ever! So, here’s the low-down:
What is Extra Life? What have you gotten yourselves into this time?
Extra Life is a charity organization that is most famous for setting up a global 24-hour gaming marathon that has gamers attempting to play any game– board game, video game, card game, etc– for 24 hours straight without stopping. Anyone can participate, and your fundraising goal can be any amount you want– don’t hesitate to sign up yourself if you think you can get a few friends or family members to pitch in a couple bucks.
100% of the money goes to the charity, and it’s used to purchase video games and consoles for kids who are chronically ill or otherwise have to stay in hospitals for extended periods. The games are meant to help take their minds off of what they may be going through, which I’m sure many of you who have spent time in a hospital can relate to!

Mega-Man/Mighty No. 9 creator Keiji Inafune says “if any creator has not played Mario, then they’re probably not a good creator”, shares fondness for the series

“I have total respect for Miyamoto, to the point where… It’s very strange that there are national cultural treasures – they’re traditionally sportsmen. I think it’s very strange that somebody as famous as Miyamoto hasn’t been designated one of those people. He’s talked about in all different countries. Lots of people know him. He’s pushed forward Japanese culture and interest in Japan all over the world. He’s somebody that deserves everyone’s ultimate respect, and a lot of that is due to being able to create Mario. And Super Mario Bros. 3, of course, within that, was a fantastic game.”
– Keiji Inafune
This quote comes as part of a large Super Mario related feature that IGN is putting together where many gaming-industry personalities– Greg Miller, Cliffy B, and Ted Price, for example. You can check that out here.

So strange. So fantastic.
If you enjoy EarthBound, this is the episode for you. Most of it was regular “Here’s a Podcast” nonsense, but the last 45 minutes were dedicated to discussing that esoteric and beloved 1994 game from designer Shigesato Itoi, and I think it was an extremely fitting tribute. WWP includes Kerbal Space Program, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, and Harvest Moon/Rune Factory 4; listener mail includes some stuff I cant’t remember.

[Video Feature] Eggbusters – Sonic Adventure 2: Battle
Posted on 9 years ago by Austin(@NE_Austin) in Eggbusters, Features, Videos | 1 Comment
This is perhaps the only third party game that has been as highly requested as several first party Nintendo titles, and now– courtesy of Jack– we can finally do it! Hopefully we didn’t screw up the one episode you really wanted to watch if you’re a Sonic Adventure 2: Battle fan.
[REVIEW] Rune Factory 4 (3DS)
Posted on 9 years ago by Austin(@NE_Austin) in 3DS, Features, Reviews | 1 Comment
System: Nintendo 3DS
Release Date: October 1st, 2013 (NE), Q1 2014 (EU)
Developer: Neverland Co.
Publisher: XSEED Games (NA), Marvelous AQL (EU)
There’s an implicit warning to the player the moment they start up Rune Factory 4, and it goes something like this:
“I really hope you like anime.”
Yes, the first thing you’ll lay eyes upon after clicking the game’s icon on the 3DS’ home menu is a fully animated music video where anime-styled characters are introduced and a Japanese woman sings a wonderfully cliché (in a good way, I might argue) tune in the background. If you had seen the video without any context, you may as well have assumed it was the theme song to a TV show or the title sequence of a film– and depending on who you are, that might be a joyous setting of stage for a game. Regardless, this opening is actually a very serviceable measuring stick for whether or not Rune Factory 4 will tickle your fancy.
Beyond that outer aesthetic layer, though, there’s a lot to Rune Factory 4: Players will be asked to tend crops, foster relationships (both romantic and platonic), tackle dungeons, learn to cook, forge items, take up chemistry– the list of activities, superficially, is extremely long. Quantity does not equate to quality though, and in the case of Rune Factory 4, the quality does prove somewhat unstable.
Oddworld Inhabitants speaks on the possibility of new Oddworld games, says there are “two different possibilities”

“Most of my time today is going into designing new product, but our bandwidth is stretched. So I’m designing a lot of things – two major things. Now I’m not sure which will get started first. If we have the success of New ‘n’ Tasty … let’s say if we can do a million units of New ‘n’ Tasty – I don’t know if that’s completely unrealistic or not because we don’t have advertising money, we don’t have a big publisher pushing it. I think Sony will help us expose it. I think it will be a quality game, but it’s not trying to be Destiny, right?
