Power Button - Episode 351: Thirty Hours With Sonic Frontiers

Power ButtonThere's lots to do in the open zones of the Starfall Islands in Sonic Frontiers, and since I spent thirty hours last week seeing it all and earning the platinum trophy, it seems only right to spend this episode of the podcast discussing the game.  Before we get into that though, Blake Grundman regales us with tales of his recent European tour and we take a suggestion from the audience and give The Pinball Wizard for PC, iOS, and Nintendo Switch a spin. Download this week's episode directly from PTB, listen with the player below, find us on Stitcher, subscribe via iTunes, Amazon Music Podcasts, and Google Podcasts, toss this RSS feed into your podcast aggregation software of choice, and be sure to catch up on past episodes if you're joining us late.

Prepare For Trouble And Make It Triple

Sonic Triple TroubleSega's classic Sonic the Hedgehog games for the Genesis are still held up as the best in the series, but the handheld Game Gear titles deserve a little spotlight of their own.  The last of those games, Sonic Triple Trouble, was the companion game for Sonic 3 and Knuckles featuring Knuckles as an enemy tricked by Dr. Robotnik once again and a new rival in the form of Nack the Weasel who is running his own plan to collect Chaos Emeralds.  Now Triple Trouble is back as a fan-created game developed by Noah Copeland for Windows and Android that converts the game into a Genesis title and expands on it with new experiences including adding Knuckles and Nack as playable characters, real-time character switching between Sonic and Tails, new level gimmicks, and much more.  Best of all, as a fan game, it's completely free!

Power Button - Episode 331: Days Spent With Days Gone

Power ButtonBend Studio's Days Gone for the Sony PlayStation 4 landed with somewhat of a thud when it released two years ago, but multiple patches, being free for PlayStation 5 owners, and a recent PC port have revitalized the zombie apocolypse title, giving it a second wind and a new admiration that it didn't have before.  On this week's podcast, I explain to Blake Grundman why more people need to play this game by spoiling the hell out of it, so if you want to know the main story beats before deciding to invest thirty hours or more into the game, come on in and let me explain everything you need to know.

Power Button - Episode 330: Our VR Helmets Awaken For Star Wars Pinball VR

Power ButtonA long time ago when I lived in a different house far, far away I bought a PlayStation VR unit, but have not used it very often after the original wow factor wore off.  Zen Studios has encouraged me to dust it off thanks to the new Star Wars Pinball VR, and of course Blake Grundman is flying high with his various Oculus headsets to try it too.  We have an hour of discussion about the game, the new tables based on The Mandalorian and classic collectibles, the career mode, the decorative fan cave, and much more, plus Blake went the extra mile and broke free of VR to buy his own actual real Star Wars pinball table, so you know we have to talk about that.  Settle in for stories the Jedi won't tell you.
