Notes for this Podcast

Like a red wine stain on your white carpet, we’re never going away.

I’m back with Liam and Dave to talk about the latest gaming news, get a bit nostalgic over Konami’s classic Kojima titles, and talk about what we’ve been playing this week.

There are also listener messages, and of course we have another poorly remembered game quote.

Pre-order Destiny 2 to get early Beta access: https://www.destinythegame.com/buy From the makers of the acclaimed hit game Destiny, comes the much-anticipated sequel. An action shooter that takes you on an epic journey across the solar system.

He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.

The theatrical teasers for Destiny 2 feature the voice talent of Nathan Fillion, Lance Reddick and Gina Torres as the Vanguard leaders.

Because I don’t play Destiny, I didn’t realise there were three core factions - so didn’t pick up on the fact that Gina Torres was a main character from her brief appearance in the second trailer!

April fools’ day

Bandai’s Tekken Eddy controller

The perfect gift for the button masher in your life.

8-bit Bayonetta

Sega released a scrolling shooter, which is available for free on Steam. It’s a fairly simple tribute, but teases something more to follow…

Policenauts and Snatcher

Before Hideo Kojima became a household name with Metal Gear Solid, he produced these gems for Konami. As a result of their scarcity, and limited release, many fans have imported and modified their consoles in order to play the different versions.

We talk a little about these and how their content has appeared in or influenced later Kojima games.

There’s a lot of information on fan sites also. In particular, Hardcore Gaming 101 offers a lot of background on both Snatcher and Policenauts.

If you’ve played Metal Gear Solid, you’ll probably recognise the main riff of the Policenauts theme from the intro credits screens. Dave has a try at singing it later in the ep.

This is the main theme of Policenauts. A game from Hideo Kojima, that was released only in japan. If you play Metal Gear Solid, then you maybe remember to this track.
