Vidjagame Apocalypse 205 – Frog Friends

Blaster Master Zero’s recent arrival on Switch revived a classic tale of a boy and his frog, so this week we let nostalgia be our guide and put together a list of five of gaming’s greatest green amphibians. We then move on to Danganronpa 1-2 Reload, Switch sales, the upcoming Steven Universe RPG, and the sleeper games you’ve either recently discovered, or wish others would.

Question of the Week
With Mass Effect Andromeda on the horizon, which was your favorite Mass Effect character to romance? (If you didn’t play Mass Effect, make up an alien and describe how you’d romance it.)



Theme song by Matthew Joseph Payne. Break song is All Masters Rap from Parappa the Rapper. Haunting and beautiful New Releases Theme by David B. Cooper.

  1. I usually did Miranda cause I’m boring as fuck, although I’ve played every game in the series enough times that I’ve romanced everyone. Garrus is a big sweetheart too.

  2. F the haters, I love Slippy Toad. I had a green N64 controller when I first got my N64 and was a big fan of Slippy.

  3. Scooby Doo Mystery on Genesis is a very underrated game! It’s a Scooby Doo SCUMM game and it looks really cool.

  4. No shock Switch sells well. The Wii U sold well at launch. What will determine is in several months to a year when there is a game drought. The Switch’s lineup is piss poor and does not have near the appeal the Wii did. Switch has Zelda BOTW but I’m playing that on Wii U with no problems and it is the better experience.

    That and the accessories for this console are laughably overpriced.

    1. What I mean by better experience is I didn’t have to shell out 300 bucks for a new console. Didn’t mean to imply better technically.

  5. Just wanted to give a quick shoutout to Ribbit King, which features the most riveting made-up sport of the PS2 era — Frolf! As in “frog golf.” Never mind the fact that the word had already been used for years — including an episode of Seinfeld — for “Frisbee golf,” Frolf was pretty much golf, but you used a frog instead of a golf ball.
    A nice look at it here:

    To be honest, I never touched the game, but when I worked at the Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine, our reviewer Thierry Nguyen (whom we called “Scooter,” a name shared by Ribbit King’s protagonist) couldn’t get enough of it. We’d watch him play for hours.

  6. Question of the Week: Even though I romanced Tali, as soon as I finished the series I went back and started a FemShep story just so I can romance Garrus. With my first play through, I always had Garrus on my team and he’s by far the best teammate to have. It sucked that he wasn’t romance-able (definitely a word) as a male Shepard so I just had to go through the story again as FemShep just to do so.

  7. Don’t you dare fire Dave! He is my favourite and his tastes are the most similar to mine (as the love of Robot Alchemic Drive will attest!)

    Plus his puns are awesome.

    The biggest problem I have is the other guys are constantly cutting him off!

  8. sigh… Grimm reopened some old wounds when he brought up Shirow Masamune and his devolving into greasy banana boob porn. I love Appleseed so much. I love ALL his comics works. I just don’t understand why he went down this road. I’m sad now.

  9. I think I’m one of the few that think Mass Effect is way over rate. Mass Effect is one of the first games I started playing once I got back into gaming after a decade of not gaming at all. I was way into trophies and was pissed when my Male Shepard banged Jack, but I didn’t get the trophy for romancing her. As a young 20 something, I couldn’t understand that romancing and banging were two different things. So when the trophy didn’t pop I course corrected and started after my true love in the game, Tali.

  10. a brief comment about Chris’ comment on the Soundcloud account that uploads the music to Steven Universe. It’s Aivi & Surasshu and it’s an official account. Rebecca found them ON soundcloud and brought them on the show and lets them continue to upload music there. I’ve been following Aivi’s work on Bandcamp via Deviantart since just before she got put on SU. they’re great people.

  11. I’m disappointed that Big the Cat’s frog friend Froggy didn’t make the list. It ate a chaos emerald! As retribution here’s 10 minutes of Big saying Froggy.

    QOTW: Tali has my heart. Her charm and mystery was too alluring. Plus I gave her dick so good she got a cold.

  12. You could theoretically have looked up a Genesis game on GameFAQs while that generation was current. GameFAQs started in ’95, Genesis ran until ’97.

  13. Me2 is the only one worth playing and Tail is the only gal for me. Although Garrus was the only guy for me. If I could have a threesome it would be with Tail and Garrus. Though im not sure if either of them would be open to that idea.
