I think its fair to say that few years live up to the calibre of 2013. From the very beginning of the year with DMC, Dead Space, and Tomb Raider, it felt like developers had developed a mastery in both … Continue reading DoFuss’s Games of 2013
We are back for the almost-last DoFuss Show. December will see the last DoFuss Show with my return from Japan to the UK. As I won’t be in the ‘land of the rising sun’ any more, the opening lyrics claim that I am ‘the number one gaijin, the man in Japan who can’ will become hopelessly inaccurate so (as we can’t be bothered to rewrite the theme tune) we decided to cancel the show.

It has been a long week, in no way helped by the fact that we had to record this show twice thanks to technical problems. Fortunately the dry run meant that even with my general exhaustion we were able to keep the show mostly on track, and when we didn’t it was at least funny. Continue reading The DoFuss Show – 29 out of 100.
Okay, I have finally taken over the reigns of editing, which is why the latest podcast is a tad late. Think I have it all down though, so here’s hoping you won’t notice much of a difference. During the course of this show we manage to talk about institutionalization… and drugs… and sandwiches, all without diverging from the usual format of news and features. Frakesy, Darren’s old games and the song challenge are back as always and are joined this week by discussion of game prices. A few extra notes. Every time I say Acclaim I mean Activision. It is … Continue reading The DoFuss Show – I Want a Sandwich.
More information on Home Improvement for the Super Nintendo (from Wikipedia)… The player guides Tim “The Toolman” Taylor in a quest to find some Binford power tools that have gone missing from the set of Tool Time. The game is broken down into 4 worlds of 4 levels, each world containing a boss level. It is also worth noting that the game had no manual; its splash screen explained, “Real men don’t need instructions.” Ultimately, the game has received quite negative reviews despite the show’s popularity. This is most likely because of the strange aspect of Tim Taylor trying to … Continue reading The DoFuss Show – “Real men don’t need instructions.”
What have you been playing, news and features make up the show this week. Though the last few weeks have been uneventful in terms of new releases we keep playing games and stuff is still happening in the industry. Fallout 3 – New Vegas, Bioshock 2, Assassins Creed 2 and Dantes Inferno are all games we do not talk about. Instead we focus our attention on Final Fantasy XIII, Wii Motion Plus and a plethora of other juicy topics that sprung to mind. All this before we have a little chat about the direction of the handheld market, and why … Continue reading The DoFuss Show – Where is the Gumbo?
I don’t like what Mirrors Edge does to me. It captures my most obsessive side. The part of me that is determined to take every jump perfectly. My problem is that I don’t seem to be good enough at it. I am unable or unwilling to spend the time to commit every minutia of every course to memory to enable me to actually be good at it. Perversely, I don’t care. Plowing on, repeating sections, furious at my own ineptitude but enjoying it none the less. The reasons all of the irritations never detract from the games appeal for me … Continue reading Mirror’s Edge (360, PS3, PC)
