Because we can’t get enough of video games, let’s talk about them more. In this episode, Mr Toffee and Darth Shafique examine the PS4 exclusive Gravity Rush 2 and Mr Toffee finally finishes the Xbox One version of Final Fantasy XV. Oh, and there’s some Nintendo Switch and Oscars talk too in-between.
As someone who appreciates Dark Souls methodical approach to combat and Street Fighter V’s love for footsies and zoning, I dig Ubisoft’s latest title For Honor. For those not in the know, For Honor is an action multiplayer title where knights, vikings, and samurais fight each other in some alternate earth where this sort of thing happens.
It’s enough to give most history buffs a boner, at least those who are fans of medieval and ancient weaponry and chivalry battle-type stuff.
Lots of people say that its single-player campaign is just an extended tutorial for the multiplayer. That’s kinda true, though Ubisoft took great pains to make us give a damn about daimyos, pillaging vikings, and wardens questioning their morals. Point is, multiplayer kicks lots of ass, and will appeal to a LOT of fighting game guys and gals.
My reasons are twofold.
Do you love to thrown people down from the sky to the ground? Do you relish in picking up fools and tossing them down and let gravity sort out their bones and skulls?
If you answered “no” to both questions, what’s wrong with you?
Fine, there are safer ways to dispose of the competition: fireballs, guns, the occasional bowling ball. But there’s a lot more reward in blazing through the opposition, scooping them up, and then tossing them down in style and with full force like the ragdolls they are.
In our very first Last King Decree feature -where we royally state cool awesome things which are totally facts – we present thee with THE definitive top 20 grapples and throw moves in video game history.
Sentai heroes fighting monsters in a movie universe! A divine dog with a paintbrush that draws bombs! A stripper/librarian who summons Monty Python style demon fists using her hair! This can only mean one thing: Mr Toffee and Shafique are serving up some “Platinum Games” love (as well as Studio Clover) in this hardcore game-centric episode!
In this slightly more personal episode, the guys reflect on the passing of those we celebrate in 2016. From the loss of our favourite princess to other royalties such as Prince and the Thin White Duke. We try to keep things light-hearted and avoid dwelling too much, instead recalling all the magical moments and memories that we hold dear. And paying tribute to those who left an indelible mark on us and pop culture forever.
