ARGcast #21: No Man’s Sky Refunds and Deep Cuts with Andre Tipton
Does No Man’s Sky developer Hello Games owe gamers refunds and an apology? Are today’s gamers simply too entitled? These are the questions we answer and more over this latest bit of industry shenanigans.
We bring the primary focus back to what we know best (retro gaming!) with one hit wonders by the Big N. Do these Nintendo deep cuts deserve followups? Which ones could have been successful given the proper marketing?
We have TWO physical copies of Worms WMD for you lucky ARGonauts out there! Just let us know your favorite one hit wonder along with your console of choice (PS4 or Xbox One) on Twitter or Facebook for a chance to win. Winners announced on September 9th. The show wraps up with a quick discussion over how Sega used their own custom made machines to create some of their most beloved classics. Don’t miss this if you are a fan of history and how games were made back in the 80s and 90s!
The Stage of History this week includes the near Tarzan knockoff Jungle Hunt, the RTS that put the genre on the map Command & Conquer, and “a Hideo Kojima game” Metal Gear Solid. Along with our big giveaway mentioned earlier, we also have game codes sprinkled throughout the show, so be sure to pick those up!
