I’m too sad to know the episode number.
It’s Xbox Game Pass season on RFN. James begins the show with a duo of games on Xbox Game Pass: Project Wingman and Star Wars: Fallen Order. Project Wingman is what happens when fans of Ace Combat try to make their own game, and Star Wars: Fallen Order is what happens when the developer of the best shooter of a generation gets Star Wars. He and Jon are then revved up for Forza Horizon 5. A vehicle Olympics in Mexico hides a dark “pay to win” secret. James, a martyr, stood up to oppose such plans. Jon, a natural devotee, happily gave Bill Gates his money. Jon also played Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, also in Game Pass. It’s not a Wonder Boy and Gui can finally explain to us how all these series are related. Guillaume brings us back to the Switch, with Ys Origin and WarioWare: Get It Together! Ys Origin is a prequel to the Ys series and it returns to more traditional gameplay rather than the 3D world of VIII and IX. Greg wraps up new business with a look at the 3DS port of Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Kirby’s extra Epic yarn. It’s one of the many Wii and Game Cube games that have made their way to 3DS, and he has thoughts about his place in this pantheon.
After a pause, we dive into a couple of listener mail. First we suggest some Joy-Con alternatives for the discerning (and cheap) consumer, then we talk a little about IGN’s review of
persona Shin Megami Tensei V. You can ask us to criticize other people by sending an email.
