Agents of S.N.E.S. – Vidjagame Apocalypse 434

This week marks 30 years(!) since the North American launch of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System – by our measure, one of the best consoles ever. To celebrate, we invited Tony Wilson of Framework back on to talk about five of our favorite characters that debuted on Nintendo’s 16-bit monster, after which we shift to Psychonauts 2, Twelve Minutes, Gamescom news, and the game worlds you’d love to take a road trip through.

Question of the Week: What games would you want to see get a Director’s Cut with extended scenes, more story, etc?

  1. Give me a Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Director’s Cut. As one of my favorite games of 2019, I would love a reason to go back to it and interact with BD-1 and Cal Kestis again. They could go into some of the stuff Cal goes through during the Jedi Purge at the end of Revenge of the Sith. Or maybe have Cere and Greeze in their own playable backstory levels. Just give me more of that Dark Souls Metroidvania goodness.

  2. QotW: The game that I would like to see a Director’s Cut version of is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. While there were several post-launch updates and next-gen optimizations, we never got any more story content. It would be super interesting to see more of the Star Wars universe in the post-Order 66 time period and I’m sure they could drop in some cameos from Rebels or Clone Wars. Additionally, I don’t think the game ever got a proper “New Game +” mode (the mode exists but it resets your skill tree and only allows you to keep cosmetics) so I think it would be cool to have more of a reason to replay the campaign especially since reflecting blaster shots back at storm troopers was super satisfying and the light saber duels were some of the best in any Star Wars videogame to date.

  3. Qotw: It almost seems to easy to say MGS:V but I cant think of anything more deserving of a directors cut. Back in 2018, I was getting close to the end of TPP, and I wanted to play through MGS 3 and Peace Walker before I saw the ending. After dozens of hours of sneaking, and rage quitting Peace Walker, I returned to MGS:V, only to learn that I had already beaten the game. All that was left was replaying a couple missions on a higher difficulty. TPP remains one of my favorite games of the generation, but it is undeniably unfinished, and I
    would have loved to see Kojima’s complete vision. In the same vain, It would be interesting to play MGS4 with the rumored, original emdong that had Snake and Otacon being tried and executed as terrorists.
