In this weeks episode, Dan, Greg, and Heath discuss the history and the importance of the 2D side scroller. Heath goes retro, and plays one of his all time favorite games, Super Mario World, on the original Super Nintendo. Heath also continues deeper into Artorias of the Abyss, literally, and gets to experience a huge chunk of it. Dan Jumps into Assassins Creed, instantly jumps out and jumps into Assassins Creed 2. Dan also finally finishes Last Story, so every body should send him a big congratulations. Greg starts to explore the world of Assassins Creed 3, but gets distracted by one of his favorite games series, Uncharted (3).
Our discussion of 2D side scrollers takes all of us on a trip down memory lane, and gives us hope for the future of gaming. We finish up with our Triple Barrel Shotgun question of the week, which is ; What is your 3 favorite side scrolling characters? Please let us know, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
