Here we are for the week of May 6th. There is actually quite a good chunk of news this week, which is a good thing. The past few have felt pretty light, even though we get through it all pretty fast in this episode. E3 is also just around the corner, so I’m sure we’ll have plenty to deal with come then.
Isli is out this week but you can tune in to catch MissXya and I discuss the past week in news, as well as have a short chat about Iron Man 3 at the end of the podcast. Don’t worry I let you know when to skip ahead when we talk about spoilers.
We’re getting closer and closer to our 100th episode. I can’t believe it’s been this long. Hope you’ve all been enjoying it so far!
Guacamelee! is a Metroid-vania style action-platformer set in a magical Mexican inspired world.
The game draws its inspiration from traditional Mexican culture and folklore, and features many interesting and unique characters. Guacamelee builds upon the classic open-world Metroid-vania style of games, by adding a strong melee combat component, a new dimension switching mechanic, and cooperative same-screen multiplayer for the entire story. The game also blurs the boundaries between combat and platforming by making many of the moves useful and necessary for both of these.
