New console games have a standard price point every generation. With the introduction of the 9th generation, will that price eventually go up? What does that mean in a world of DLC, special editions, and a practice of dropping to $20 or $30 a few weeks after release?

Sean and Vinnk discuss whether a raise to a $70 makes sense, or of games are already overpriced. Sean talks Riven: The Sequel to Myst in Future Retro, and Vinnk reviews a Cyan game from even before Myst.

    172: The Risible Cost of Retro

    1:27:27

    Vinnk and Sean talk about the insane auction prices of some not-very-rare (but sealed) physical retro games, and the value of remakes. In Future Retro, Sean shares his spoiler-free thoughts on The Last of Us Part II on PS4, and Vinnk reviews… a book? Oh, but it’s about the value of retro games!

    Two Boobs Watch the Tube Episode 1: See - Season 1 (2019)

    41:46

    Originally Broadcast 2021/10/22: Check out the first episode of our SECRET PODCAST! After a war that nearly wipes out humanity, anyone born with the curse of sight or access to written knowledge is killed by the Witchfinders of Queen Kane of the Payan Kingdom. Despite this, the Queen had designs on royal progeny who can see in order to gain an edge over her enemies. Her consort goes astray, however, and shares this gift with many, many women who are not the Queen. One such woman ends up in the village of Baba Voss, where she gives birth to twins, and marrying Baba who raises little Kofun and Haniwa as his own. When it is discovered they can see, they must do everything in their power to make sure the Queen never finds them. Vinnk and Sean review the first season of this bold series, set in beautiful, desolate locales ironically at odds with the show's title. How does such a story tread the line between nullifying one of the five main senses its audience may take for granted without denigrating the characters (and their very much sighted actors)? What do they think of this new-fangled Apple TV+ streaming service amongst a crowd of so many others? Starring: * Jason Momoa - Baba Voss * Alfre Woodard - Paris * Sylvia Hoeks - Queen Sibeth Kane * Hera Kilmar - Maghra * Archie Madekwe - Kofun * Nesta Cooper - Haniwa Available on Apple TV+.

    171: Digital Post-Apocalypse

    1:23:16

    The bad news keeps compounding for Sony. First came the announcement that the PS3, PSP, and Vita online stores would be shutting down this July. Then some intrepid investigators discovered that the death of the CMOS battery in PS3 and PS4 models means your digital libraries would be useless -- even if the batteries are replaced -- unless it can connect to online servers that will no longer be in service after this year. And lo and behold, this problem affects the PS5 as well! On this 10th anniversary episode of the DojoCast, Sean and Vinnk recall the first episode about the DLC Apocalypse, and how it's really been here all along. Sean talks about how Pile of Shame LIVE! turned his opinion around about Double Switch, and Vinnk is still playing Phoenix Wright after all these years -- this time on a region-free Switch cartridge collection of the first three games.

    170: Video Game Crunch

    1:44:51

    Most games are made with some kind of crunch to meet sales targets and match up with buying patterns, but sometimes the motives of publishers (and it's almost always the publishers) can be more nefarious. Why does crunch happen, and how can consumers stop it, if at all? Would you pay more for a game that was made ethically? Vinnk and Sean recount stories of developer woe, and ways to combat the scourge of "crunch". In Future Retro we go back to two second sequels: Myst III and Pikmin III. And we answer your questions with our "live" audience, from our Discord, and more!"One More Continue" and "RPG" theme songs by the Imari Tones: http://imaritones.net.

    169: Incredibly Disappointing Sequels

    1:18:50

    Video game sequels weren't like movie sequels. Technical improvements and customer feedback almost always mean better games, and more money to make them. But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. Sean and Vinnk try to one-up each other with progressively worse video game sequels, we take suggestions from live viewers, Vinnk's Future Retro is VERY retro, and Sean's Pile of Shame is inspired by his now-weekly live streams, but focuses on Night in the Woods."One More Continue" and "RPG" theme songs by the Imari Tones: http://imaritones.net.

    167: Genres That Won't Be Myst

    1:15:54

    Why do some video game genres endure, when others fizzle out? What happens when one of the genres that dies is one that you really happen to love? Graphic adventure games gave us a scare for a while, but text adventures are toast. Sean and Vinnk talk about Myst, its remake realMyst, its re-remake (also) Myst, and try to pin down its categorization. Is it a walking similuator, or is Myst its own genre now? We discuss other genres that are gone or have changed fundamentally so as to no longer be any fun. And we answer your questions in our latest Denshimail segment!

    166: More Different With Age

    1:37:10

    Gone are the days that shipping a game meant it was "done", and the development team would move on to a new project. In the 2020s, like other software, distributing games over the internet can mean spending more time and money creating a new experience than what lead up to the launch date. Games that were "finished" years ago can see updates that fundamentally change the experience. Sometimes this is by design. Sometimes it's because the game that was launched was a dud. Vinnk and Sean discuss whether this behavior is throwing good money after bad, or if it's a model that's here to stay... and whether that's a good thing, plus games we wish we could play as they used to be, but no longer can. In Pile of Shame, Sean describes getting back into No Man's Sky for the first time in nearly four years, and Vinnk shares his newfound love of Chess and 50 other worldwide classics with Clubhouse Games for Nintendo Switch.
