    Rad Rodgers: Radical Edition Review

    I love 2D side scrollers. I love silly, cheesy throw backs to my earlier years. So, you would think I would enjoy a 2D side scrolling shooter that is full to the brim with cheesy throwbacks to what I thought cool meant in my youth, and you would be right. Bring on Rad Rodgers Radical Edition! Rad Rodgers found plenty of success on PC. Then the success continued over onto other consoles thanks to the way the game played and tweaked the nostalgic bug in many of us. Now it has landed on the Switch called Rad Rodgers Radical Edition with a few bonuses including co-op, new levels, enemies, and mini games, also released as a free upgrade for anyone who owns the game elsewhere. Rad Rodgers tells the story of Rad who is a boy living the life of many children. One of these children like playing video games but is a slave to his enforced bed time. One night Rad is sucked into his console where he meets Dusty, a version of his console with two arms and a grumpy old action hero persona. This relationship is the game’s biggest hook, for better and worse. Rad is the kid many of us nerds thought we wanted to be as a kid, a bad ass with a gun, and Dusty is a walking cliché. One-liners, swearing, and a sweeping generalization of 80s action heroes all bound up into one, makes for a funny gimmick for a while, but eventually it does get tired. Fortunately, the gameplay is excellent, so the game’s quirkiness isn’t the whole thing stringing you along. The gameplay consists of a classic left to right 2D platforming shooter, where the platforming and shooting has all been crafted to perfection. A lot of throwbacks like this don’t quite get the gameplay right as they spend too much time on the jokes, but Rad Rodgers consistently felt form start to finish like a polished game. Levels are all colourful and beautiful to look at thanks to its bold colours with crisp environmental design. Each stage is filled with collectables and enemies to kill, while naturally in the throwback to old times, giving you high scores to achieve. Another throwback, if you choose to play it that way, is limited lives. Losing all your lives throws you back to the start of the level, which isn’t too punishing, but boy is it frustrating. Rad Rodgers does what it aims to do, well. It is a fun, silly throwback in every way, but with 2019 quality graphics, that is so damn fun to play. Simple gun upgrades and minigames like a pinball table mix things up a bit, but the game does get a little tired by the end. It is easy to recommend for anyone looking to platform and shoot themselves way through an adolescent dream.

    Any console gamers in Auckland?

    Hey everyone! First of all I apologise if this is the wrong forum for my post, I just thought this forum would be the perfect place for me to start. I've been an owner of many consoles, from PS1, GB advance (although I mostly used emulators for fast forwarding), and N64 all the way to PS4 and Switch. I owned a lot of games but I also sold a lot of them to be able to afford new ones. And during this time, I've had a lot of frustration with the buy/sell process. Especially the second hand ones. I always thought that there must be a better way to do this, and I think the 17 yo me came up with something that could work. I never became the comedian that I aspired to be but I eventually grew up to become a software developer. And when I look around, nothing similar to my idea has hit the market yet. I now want to know if my idea is just total garbage that no one bothered to make or whether it's something that actually has potential. In order to confirm this, I've been talking to a couple of my friends that are gamers. However, I can't help but feel that they're too nice on me. I need some cold hard truth and criticism before I decide to sink months of my time in this project. Therefore I'm looking for some console gamers that I can conduct an interview on. If you're a console gamer in Auckland and you'd be interested in helping out, please pm me and I'll get in touch with you ASAP. It doesn't matter if you've never had trouble with buying or selling second hand gaming goods, I'd be interested to know why. Thanks for reading my post and apologies again for a potential spam. If I'm breaking any rules here, please let me know.

    Google's Stadia has been announced

    Google has announced it's anticipated gaming platform, and it's not a console. Stadia is a streaming platform that uses a browser and very little local processing power to have games looking great. Little is known how the service will work, or what it will cost, but it sounds intriguing and the controller looks nice. The questions that will need to be answered after launch is how will it run on varying qualities of internet.
