New Super Mario Bros holds a particularly conflicted place for me in my memories of 2010. After the usual blanket TV ad campaign (that Nintendo subjects Japanese audiences to) interest was high. Continue reading DoFuss 2010 – New Super Mario Brother (or “no more plurals”).
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.

Darren is back just in time for a semi-festive show. We spend most of our time catching up on the last few months events and our respective holiday breaks but in the process we do touch on lots of games in-between our stories. As I said last show do not expect Dans wonderfully detailed show notes every week, and this week serves only to reaffirm that declaration. I can tell you that you can expect us to talk about all the games we played recently, Red Dwarf, bad commercials, me pissing myself, me being taunted by hordes of nerds, the … Continue reading The DoFuss Show – Craig Charles had far too much to do with it.
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?
Lots of Wii this week. It dominated mine and Darren’s gaming time. From Madworld to Bit Trip Beat and on to the Virtual Console (for Darren) it has been by far the most my Wii has been used for over … Continue reading The DoFuss Show – Heavy Wii
We don’t manage to discuss every thing on the menu despite talking for an hour and a half. It’s Wii parties for starters, Street Fighter 4 and recent XBLA games for the main course with a ‘games as art’ discussion for dessert. By then you should be full so be happy we decided leave the fighting games retrospective till next time. Click here to download Podcast 3 (58MB) Continue reading Podcast 3 – 22/08/2008
