Kaiju-Sized Growth Spurts – Vidjagame Apocalypse 436

Being normal-sized is cool and all, but what if you could – just for a little bit – get really, enormously huge and just stomp all the monsters or whatever who thought they could push you around? Leif Johnson joins us for a look at five games that (temporarily!) grow their heroes to giant size, after which we’ll get into FIST: Forged in Shadow Torch, Sonic Colors Ultimate, Lake, chip-supply shortages, and your best camp stories.

Question of the Week: Which game character would you want to play as a kaiju-sized version of?

  1. QotW: I want to play as a giant version of Kirby in games outside of Smash. It would be fun to play as him fighting against whatever cosmic horror is in the newest game in Gurren Lagaan style fights where you suck in galaxies to shoot at them.

  2. QOTW: I would like to play a game with the giant version of Donkey Kong. Imagine running through the streets of New Donk City and destroying buildings in your way before finally coming head to head in a fight with King K. Rool. You could have Diddy Kong lift you into the sky before dropping down and destroying a section of the map. Or playing as Cranky Kong cane-jumping all over the place. Or maybe it could be like Donkey Kong 94 as a puzzle platformer but with Mario gigantic as well. Just make another version of Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee.

  3. QOTW: Kaiju Donkey Kong for a climactic battle, defending New Donk City from against Kaiju K. Rool.

  4. QOTW: Sunset overdrive! Maybe a few Herkers combine to make a gross fleshy voltron and you get big to fight it…Honestly I just want more Sunset overdrive.

    love the show! it makes my shitty day at work seem slightly less terrible .
