Vidjagame Apocalypse 212 – The Worst of Mike Myers

With Austin Powers recently turning 20, we undertake a fan suggestion this week and look at five awful, awful games based on Mike Myers movies… with the help of our old pal Dan Amrich, who won the internet this week by co-creating the stellar Star Wars/Beatles mashup album known as Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans. Then it’s time for a spirited discussion about Prey, Call of Duty: WWII, Darksiders III, the New Nintendo 2DS XL, and the series whose gameplay you’d mash together if you could.

Question of the Week
With the 3DS apparently on its way out, what’s your favorite experience playing a game in 3D?

  1. QOTW: With the 3DS apparently on its way out, what’s your favorite experience playing a game in 3D?

    I do have a Nintendo 3DS XL, which I have had since about the spring of 2015, but I have to say, I don’t really use the 3D. The one game that I have used the 3D enabled is I am Air Traffic Controller Airport Hero Narita. Over and over, through different scenarios I would pretend that I was an neurotic Jon Cusack, lining up aircraft like Rockettes coming in for a landing. Also, I have to give a huge shoutout to Dan Amarich, great job on the album! I can’t wait to drunk Karoke these songs, which I might have already done last night…which also might be why I am hungover today. Also, an interesting guest, because I don’t think that Dan and 3D get along together very well! But anyway, love you guys, and great job again Dan!!!

  2. I actually owned that Shrek xbox game. I got it when I first got my xbox in christmas 2001. I barely played it though as PGR, NFL Fever, Tony Hawk 2x, and Halo all stole my attention.

  3. QOTW: I’m guessing my fav moment with 3D is the same one most others had, which was farting around with it turned on in that kinda sad 3DS SF4 port for a match or 2, then turning it of forever.

    1. Also, the Love Guru PC game is actually just a licensed Slot Machine game. You can play it online at a bunch of those seedy online casinos, but I believe it also got a physical release at Staples/Office Depot as part of a slot collection SO I’M COUNTING IT!

  4. QOTW: My favorite experience with playing a game in 3D is when I fell in love with Pushmo on the 3DS. While game is perfectly playable without the 3D, I would argue that Pushmo’s gameplay is enhanced by the effect. The effect helped me better perceive the distance of certain platforms which was helpful with figuring out the game’s puzzles. Not only is Pushmo my favorite experience with 3D gaming, it is also the game that justified the 3DS as a system to me.

  5. Since Dan was on the show this week I was really hoping to get a Stick it to the Dan segment. Anyway really good show this week.

  6. I am a 22 year-old who simultaneously believes that the Beatles are the greatest band of all time and that Star Wars is one long skid mark on our world’s cultural underpants. These people exist, Christopher.

    This has been building in me for a while now, and I don’t why this is the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back, but I’m good. I’ve been listening for… Seven? Eight years now? But I’m kinda just good. I like most folks on the network, but I can no longer take the resentment that seeps its way into every episode of every show. I just don’t feel like being continually alienated by Chris’s Contra-esque spreadgun of frustration. The jokes are all put-downs. The hot takes are never supported by substantive reasoning. Everyone who disagrees is one of “them.” My issue is not in politics (I’m on the same side of the spectrum), it is in presentation. And it seems it’s becoming contagious– not just to the rest of the crew, but to me as well. That’s not the energy I’m seeking from my entertainment in 2017. I do wish y’all continued success as a network, but I’m just gonna tag out. Thank you for what probably amounts to over a year’s worth of real-time entertainment and company. It has helped me through some weird times in my life and I truly appreciate all the work you guys have put into it. I realize this farewell only matters to me, but it’s my way of making peace with what has been, but will now cease to be, a fairly substantial presence in my life. Thank you.
