This week Liore, Ellyndrial, and Arolaide talk about retro games through the Awesome Games Done Quick event, Aro’s new Raspberry Pi emulator, and the Internet Archive stash of DOS games. Also, MMOs are back on our playlist with Destiny and Final Fantasy XIV making a return.
Liore watched a lot of AGDQ last week, and she’s all excited about retro games. We talk about our favorite moments from the event, and how difficult it would really be to play something blindfolded. Meanwhile Aro has been playing a ton of old SNES games — including some you’ve probably never heard of — on her new Raspberry Pi emulator and boy are her thumbs tired. Elly is excited to get his hands on the new DOS game collection at the Internet Archive because Lemmings is still great.
Meanwhile in more modern news, Aro updates us on her mission to romance everyone in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Elly has returned to Destiny for a bit, but seems somewhat subdued about the game’s future. Liore finally got back to playing MMOs, in this case Final Fantasy XIV, and she wants everyone to know about the hats.
Also, Aro dreams of seeing Adult Simba one day! Elly is still totally dazed by sudden parenthood! Liore played something called.. Corpse Party? Huh.
