Sonic the Hedgehog had a great weekend… the same can’t be said for anybody watching his 25th anniversary livestream. We talked about that fun little circus.
Also discussed this week – Gavin’s mangled music, We Happy Few, the Sega Genesis, and loads of other bollocks.
Discussing emulation as a games pundit can be risky business – it’s a taboo subject, and you can’t be seen to endorse it even slightly.
However, the existence of emulation ought to be treated more importantly and taken seriously, especially when you consider how devalued a lot of older games can become.
Also this week – highlights from Sonic’s 25th anniversary shitshow, and some amusing #FucKonami News.
On paper, Earth Defense Force is everything I should love about a videogame.
Regularly compared to Dynasty Warriors, which just so happens to be my favorite series, Earth Defense Force is a series of unapologetically camp games in which you mindlessly shoot at hundreds of giant insects over and over again.
There’s nothing deep about it, nothing complex. There’s certainly nothing pretentious about it.
It’s a big stupid videogame about shooting massive ants until there are no more massive ants to shoot. It fits squarely into the “so bad its good” category, comparable to Deadly Premonition, another game I absolutely adore and to which EDF could be compared in several pertinent ways.
On paper, Earth Defense Force is everything I should love about a videogame… but I can’t stand the series.

Your Movie Boys take their first trip to the Town That Takes, discussing the sexiness of Pyramid Head, the stupidity of our protagonist, and the problems with casting an uncreepy child as a creepy child.
Pokemon Go is a mundane game and a poorly made, unfinished app. It may very well be the best Pokemon game ever made, too.
Kind of. Sort of. A bit.
Either way, I can’t get over my fascination with the thing’s bizarre creative success.
