Anthony (alias MagusX1) and Alex enter the wayback machine this week to reflect on the games that made a big impact on their lives. What games did they pick? Meanwhile, our heroes grapple with a particularly greedy Stupid Elitist Fanboy of the Week. This perpetrator wrote not just a comment but a whole REVIEW filled with stupid elitist fanboyism… but is there more than meets the eye?
Have no fear — Alex and Anthony (aka Magus) are here! This week, our fearless cyber warriors discuss Microsoft and Sony’s upcoming motion-based controllers. Just how good of an idea is it to use your body as a controller? What will this new technology mean for current games? Is Milo destined to become NAMBLA’s new poster child? Tune in for all this plus a WoW-tastic Stupid Elitist Fanboy of the Week!
The Pixel and Polygon Protectors reach their twentieth episode this week! And what an action-packed episode it is! As if Alex comparing the ending of Batman: Arkham Asylum to a post-coital cigarette wasn’t exciting enough, Magus and Alex duke it out over this current generation of consoles. Are we headed towards a ten-year cycle? Are game companies taking fewer risks and producing fewer outstanding games? Or is this, in fact, the most interesting console generation in years? Tune in to hear their thoughts, and of course stick around for this week’s brief but hopelessly retro elitist fanboy!
Lance, a.k.a. Beltino, a.k.a. Lancelot, joins Magus and Alex this week for an extra helping of TPPPG awesomeness. So about this upcoming fall — is this the most varied holiday season yet? Our newly-augmented video warriors rant and rave about what gamers can expect over the next four months. Stick around for a stupid elitist “evil fanboy Magus,” and is that an Alex rant I heard this week as well…?
Magus and Alex, your friendly neighborhood pixel professors, answer questions from their mailbag this week, and raise a few questions of their own. How much is the PS3 like the Virtual Boy? Is the best character in Xenogears the naked girl at the beginning? Will Fable 3 be another “Project Ego?” And don’t miss out on Magus’s Stupid Elitist Fanboy of the Week, which features possibly one of the worst uses of a three year-old in the history of Xbox Live.
Rest easy, TPPPG fans — your favorite blast-processed pixel jockeys have returned! And Magus and Alex have noticed something lately: The new license-based games are actually sort of… fun! Are we back to the glory days of license games like the NES Batman? Well, I don’t think we’ll be seeing the return of a certain pizza bandit anytime soon, but tune in for thoughts on this plus a Stupid Elitist Fanboy of the Week Magus met in person!
And so it’s time again for the hi-def haberdashers Magus and Alex to talk games and take names! The rant this week? Casual versus hardcore games! How exactly do you define “casual game” anyway? How do you define “hardcore?” What do Xbox Live and Mike Swerski’s Superfans have in common? The answer is more complicated than you might think, so tune in and you just might learn something! Fancy a Stupid Elitist Fanboy of the Week? We have that too!
