FGC Greatest Hits #5

Okay, I lied before. Turns out there will be an article on Friday. Yeah… that’s the ticket.

In the meanwhile, let’s talk about Let’s Plays!

Xenosaga Let’s Play
Somehow, I chose the entire Xenosaga trilogy as my first Let’s Play, and that only took a year or so of my life. Sometimes I wonder how I put up with that franchise for so long, but, if I’m being honest, it is a really great franchise to Let’s Play. Or at least for me to Let’s Play. It’s amazing how much of that franchise pretty much just requires riffing on random nonsense going on. And then there’s a dungeon every few hours. Might be terrible for gameplay, but it seems to work well for Let’s Play’ing.

Wild Arms 2 Let’s Play
Wild Arms 2 is my currently ongoing Let’s Play, and it’s been surprisingly difficult. There are long breaks in that story where it’s just, like, a videogame, and what am I supposed to do with that? A detailed explanation of how cartoon bombs work? Ugh. Can we get back to random talky talk nonsense? I’m pretty sure my next Let’s Play will just be a movie review (this is a complete lie).

FGC Greatest Hits #2

Mega!So one thing I love about this site is that I can approach games that are remarkably similar, and hit them with completely different approaches. Or… something. Screw it, let’s just talk about Mega Man.

Mega Man Legacy Collection
Do you like nursery rhymes about Mega Man? Because I sure do.

Mega Man X2
And speaking of things that could potentially rhyme, here’s a dramatically out of season Christmas Special.

Mega Man
But sometimes we have to get serious and consider that Mega Man (1) may or may not be that good.

Mega Man 6 & Mega Man 7
And then it’s back to playing around in a live stream featuring two moderately related Mega Man titles.

Mega Man’s Soccer
Finally, we have the sad tale of a doctor trying to build his own soccer team. He almost achieved his dream!
