Corn Log, Stardate 2.1.16. Another episode of the Portable Power Podcast appears. Marc starts with a review of I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream. Does he find the gameplay as torturous as the subject matter? Emrys discovers sometimes the treatment is worse than the affliction in Amateur Surgeon 3 for Android. Finally, Marc travels through time via worm hole (or corn hole?) to review Metroid Zero Mission, a port for the Wii U of the Gameboy Advance game that was itself an updated port of the NES classic Metroid. Is all of the updating and porting enough to rend a hole in the fabric of space and time? The answer (and a lot of gross burping noises) await you.
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.
Nieces and nephews the world over, gather ’round for another episode of the Portable Power Podcast! Emrys plants his seed in Waking Mars on Android devices. Marc puts his effort points into downloading Warhammer 40k: Space Wolf (and wishes it truly was only 40k) for iOS. To close out the episode, Marc and Kevin tell Emrys stories of their blissful lives in Reveria in Fantasy Life for 3DS. Make sure to listen all the way to the end of this episode!
This episode, Emrys kicks off the review train and solves the world’s (math) problems in Calculords for Android. Marc behaves poorly and takes a trip to bullet hell in Gemini Strike for iOS. Lightning may be unable to strike twice, but Mighty Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt both strike Kevin out of the blue. Finally, Emrys finishes out the episode with fond reminiscences of medical malpractice in Trauma Center: Under the Knife.
Welcome to the episode you’ve all been waiting for. Maybe it’s the heat and ball-sweat of the dog days of summer, or perhaps it’s the quality of the games they reviewed for this episode, but the curmudgeonly tendencies of your hosts are out in full force this episode. After delivering Marc a special message, Kevin races through ruins in Relic Rush on iOS. Emrys simulates citizens and cites stains in City Island for Android. Next, Marc is bade to review Blade Lords for iOS. Just as your heroes are about to give in to despair, the heroes in a halfshell make their appearance in the Game Boy game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan and all is made right in the world once more.
