I never played the original, so I'll borrow Matthew's Tony Hawk argument about falling in love with the one you play first for the reasoning behind suggesing MPT.

In the absence of a Matthew-post, I'll say that the third TRP episode has gone up.  A lot of dull non-Nintendo stuff, by the sounds of things. Sleep

Downloading as we speak. Yesterday I found how to put Auto Correct back on my phone, so I have this Predict-O-Name suggestion (the previous ones were made on a website offering a predictive text service Meh ):

Hugh Huff Hogs: it's a tower defence game, where you blow into the microphone of your Nintendo device to stop hordes of rampaging pigs from attacking Hugh's castle.

NOT THE MICROPHONE. No

Halfway through now. My post above was mostly joking, but following Matthew's defection and the list of "games we've been playing", I was worried that we'd genuinely see a move away from Nintendo materials. Aww! Fortunately you lot then moved back on to Rocket, that Narnia game, and HW, so that's all right. Grin

Also, as a discussion topic arising from the podcast, what are people's opinions on free-to-play games? (Apologies if we've had this discussion before.) I know that there are some parts of the Internet that think they're the spawn of the devil, but even I would rather have the entire game unlocked for a down payment from the get-go.

Another cracking podcast. My only annoyance was Matthew pronouncing Saron like the X-Men character not the Lord of the Rings

Best part of the 'cast? Confirmation that Masofdas can't criticise me for calling Smash Bros. and its ilk "beat-em-ups" any more, because I'm not a Yank. Dance

Also, an attempt to revive the dead on board the Space Ark sounds like the premise of either a really bad, or really good, zombie film. "Oh no, it's undead Shigeru Miyamoto! Will he play the ukelele - or eat your brains?"

I think the fact that they pronounced Sauron wrong also makes that point moot Wink Need 2 different names for 2 VERY different genres dammit

But they did continue calling 2D side-scrolling beat-em ups, I guess when they do FIGHTERS like it's called at EVO they will call it one on one beat-em ups which is just silly as SMASH unless your playing at a high-level your most likely playing 4 player so doesn't fit the whole one on one criteria.

I've always called Street of Rage etc Beat-Em Ups and this from way back in 1993 when you didn't know what the sates called them as unlike today you didn't have the internet etc just magazines & games shops whom would say the genre. Same with Street Fighter was always called a fighter.

Plus there's a tag mode in almost all fighters so 1 vs 1 makes even less sense Razz

Exactly but it's normally one on one on the screen with maybe assist button to bring another character in to do something or to tag out but with SMASH there's up to 4 characters on screen at once.

I pretty well stick Smash Bros into a genre of its own.

It is kinda but at pro level it's played like a proper FIGHTER and I would think that's where it would go if it goes into the Ark unless they think you and have a weird other week which SMASH goes into.

I get my definition from magazines too - N64 was using "beat-em-up" to refer to Killer Instinct on the 64 since day one. For me, Double Dragon and the like are brawlers. Not that I ever talk about them much anyway.

Anyway, I'm not saying that your definition is wrong, Mas - just that you can't say that mine is either.

Mega Drive (Actually it was Games Master I used to read) was before the N64 Dance

I don't mind the the term brawler for beat-em ups but I do and will always will see Beat-Em Up as Double Dragon not Street Fighter, so if you said I played this great beat-em up last night Street Fighter wouldn't even come to mind.

We will see what they say the genre is when they come to add likes of Street Fighter in but would gather they go Fighter or One on One Beat-Em Ups

What about when smash bros has scrolling stages to fight on? Wink

---

Anyhow, another great episode and I have to admit I got a bit nervy listening to their thoughts on Alien Isolation at first but glad to hear they are enjoying it & I totally get what Greener meant by how it's like you are playing fetch with a giant dog. Laughing

Speaking of Greener, does anyone else find that him and Alan sound the same? I'm sure I'll adjust but it's a been a bit confusing for these first few eps......oh I also loved when The Castle mistakenly said space Mark instead of space ark.

I did start off thinking that, but I've acclimatised to their different voices over the course of the podcast. Mark sounds lower and more chilled.

There are moments but Greener sounds a bit west country (or at least more west country) than Alan so wasn't a problem for me.

In my spreadsheet of games (YES), Super Smash Bros. is listed as a 'Beat-'em-up' (I've been thinking about losing the hyphens, but, tradition) but Viewtiful Joe is listed as 'Scrolling beat-'em-up'. For the record, there are no games listed as either 'Action' or 'Adventure'. No

I've always called typical fighting games like Street Fighter and Soul Calibur as fighters and then your Streets of Rages and Final Fights as beat-em-ups.

100% True Facts was an amazing segment. The lego brick fact had me unashamedly laughing to myself in the street.

What do you stick Zelda under, if you don't mind my asking? I always use adventure.

Episode 4 is now up! Go Go Go!

Another very entertaining episode. I'm not normally a Podcast guy, but I really look forward to each episode of TRP.
