Vidjagame Apocalypse 31 – Disowned


Everyone’s back from another successful PAX, and yet this week’s episode was recorded just before PAX. It’s not outdated — it’s a time capsule! A time capsule that focuses on five games disavowed by their own creators (or the creators of whatever franchise spawned them), as well as a little Rayman and a little Killer Is Dead, plus your favorite indie games of 2013.

Question of the Week

If you could call any game character and ask them one question, who and what would it be?



*NOTE* We’ve been getting some AMAZING donations lately but hardly anyone is attaching a name and the intended recipient of said donations. Please try to make note of which podcast the donation is going to so maybe we can get some new equipment and thank the right people for all their support. Seriously, the laptop we edit this show on is one choking breath away from combustion.

  1. I’m glad to see Rayman Legends reviewing well. I haven’t grabbed it yet but Origins was one of the most fun and all around happiest games I have played in the last few years.

  2. I would ask Mecha Hitler from Wolfenstein if he wanted to help me replace my cars quarter panel. RIP in peace Mecha Hitler xoxo.

  3. QOTW: I would ask Duke Nukem what his relationship with his mother was like. A Freudian goldmine I’m betting.

  4. QOTW: I’d ask Luigi how he feels about being a second stringer all the time/ what it’s like to live in his brother’s shadow.

  5. QOTW:-
    I would like to meet Kratos and ask him: “u mad bro?”
    In all seriosuness, I would like to meet Ezio and ask: “hey, wanna hang out?”.

    1. Glad someone finally said it. Henry is so disgustingly racist. I have been to KKK rallies that treated black people nicer.

      1. Dammit, I should have known all along that Henry was a clan leader!
        I thought it was a tad bit strange that one time he called me the n-word.

        1. You got off easy. Henry lynched my closest friend and forced me to watch…. then he made me follow him on twitter.

          1. My god Batman!
            You may have just stumbled upon the greatest conspiracy these United States of America have ever known!

  6. QOTW: I’d call my old childhood friend Crash Bandicoot and ask when he wants to finally come home (from the crack den)

  7. I would call Ryo Hazuki from Shenmue and ask him where he managed to buy a Saturn in 1986. I’d also ask whether everyone thought it’s 3D was a little bit wank back then too.

  8. Spec Ops the Line felt like something I deserved to play after playing so many gung ho shooters and games about killing. No other game has really committed to making you feel the impact of war, and making you really notice that you’re killing people for very grey and undetermined reasons.

    I still like Halo games and the occasional CoD campaign, but I just feel like it was important to play a game that’s more honest about what it’s presenting.

  9. I would call Genghis Khan in Civ V to stop being a dick and burning down all my colonies. Seriously, that guy is always a dick, every single game! Just once I would like him to not be warlike.

  10. Mmmm, Spec Ops is in my backlog haha, along with a bunch of other games still in its shrink wrap. Yeah it’s nice to have a cache of games to lay low on for a bit.

    QOTW: I’d call up Conkers and ask him the meaning of life since his response would most likely be hilarious.

  11. I wanna ask Regina from Dino Crisis something. Hun, you’re wearing a one-piece swimsuit over a full bodysuit, whatcha do when you gotta go pee? You get totally naked? Not to mention you also have on huge boots and 3 belts over all that. The entire undressing process would take 10 minutes. YOU GOT DINOSAURS TO WORRY BOUT.

  12. I’d call up Cortana and ask if she wouldn’t mind doing a semester’s worth of coding homework for me. I’d imagine that has to be easy enough for an advanced artificial intelligence from hundreds of years in the future….and then i’d ask if we could cyber.

  13. I would tell Simon Belmont not to eat random meats that he may encounter in abandoned castles. And try to explain to him that he is not cursed, he just has food poisoning.

  14. The Total War games have been very cinematic for a long time, Shogun and Rome II took it to a whole new level, but the series has always been one of the best RTS/Turn-based strategies.

  15. QOTW: being a longtime fan of the Metroid franchise, I’d call Samus Aran, and NOT ask “Why Metroid no crawl?” but, instead ask “How was it like growing up around Chozo?”
