Vidya Game News – September 20, 2018

PSclassic - 01It is the weekly news roundup you can’t do without! Vidya Game News!

  • Covered by pretty much every vidya game site this week, so why not us too? – The PlayStation Classic is coming out this December. It is billed as having 20 games, with the highlight being Final Fantasy VII, which we covered in Episode 124. The suggested retail price is $99.99.
  • In other Classic System news, Sega is delaying its device to 2019, per Polygon and other sites. It is to allow for simultaneous release in all markets, but also likely because the emulation track record from the hardware company isn’t great. (But hey, a 50-game Sega collection is coming to Switch!)
  • U.S. Gamer’s Jeremy Parish has an awesome long read about the development of Star Fox, indirectly, which had its roots in a 3D engine game… for the Game Boy. You can read it here. We covered the original and Star Fox 64 in Episode 7.
  • Seth Rogen shared a lil tip that most people still don’t know – In Duck Hunt, you can control the duck by plugging in a second controller. We covered the game, and World Class Track Meet, for Episode 45.
  • Nintendo Switch’s online classic games are now available… and they’ve already been hacked.
  • Brian Fargo, formerly of Interplay, wants to buy the company back if Bard’s Tale 4 is a big success.

ON THIS DAY (OR CLOSE TO IT!) IN VIDEO GAME HISTORY…

  • Mega Man 9, a retro revamp of the series, released 10 years ago. It was the first new game in the base series since the eighth installment came out in 1996, a gap of about 12 years. We covered the second installment with Friend of the Show Hawk in Episode 30. Also coming out 10 years ago – The Lego Batman series.

Video game history information comes from GameFAQs and Moby Games. When possible, we attempt to link to original sources for all reporting, and we don’t typically link to stupid multi-page galleries. And as always, if you’d like to support the show, do so via our Amazon link.
