Emrys harvests precious ores to build shelter against things that go bump in the night in Terraria. In Our Portable Past, Kevin squeezes every bit of fun out of the underrated Game Boy Advance game Drill Dozer. Also, stick around until the end of the episode to take our “Are You a Sociopath?” test. Our diagnosis is based on no relevant medical information, but you should still respect it as you would a mental health professional’s.
What better way to ring in a new year than by talking about the best games of the previous one? In this episode Emrys, Marc, and Kevin talk about the noteworthy portable games of the last year. What was named the cream of the crop? What was dubbed the biggest turd? What was dubbed that should have been subbed? Did a certain free-to-play sub game win any awards? Listen to find out… but no, Steel Diver did not win anything.
After your hosts share reminiscences of favorite RPG memories, Kevin begins reviews and finds Mimpi fetching. Marc bounces over boundless barrels in the Game Boy classic Donkey Kong. Then Emrys gives his take on the reworked third generation gems, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
