GHX Ep. 9 Addendum: That Dragon, Cancer

• May 23rd, 2017

After the comments shared on Gaming History X Episode 9, particularly in regards to the That Dragon, Cancer discussion, Eric felt more needed to be said especially from a different perspective.  We feel that all perspectives should be given equal opportunity to speak up, so Fred and Eric delve into the criticisms leveled at the game, it's religious content, and the developer's response to its sales.  The conversation goes a bit longer than necessary, but we felt it was worthwhile to keep unedited.  Note: Unlike most episodes, this show does not contain adult language.

The Mystery of Wonder Boy

• May 3rd, 2017

Wonder Boy is one of those franchises that is probably better known in Europe than anywhere else.  It's odd to think that a Japanese-developed game that was given wide distribution find a home there of all places.  Fred and Jam delve into the development, crazy naming conventions, and evolution of one of the most versatile franchises ever.

One of the latest Sega Genesis/Mega Drive releases is a top down action RPG and brawler from Ancient, the team also responsible for Streets of Rage 2.  It was known as Beyond Oasis in North America and The Story of Thor in all other regions, and it tells the tale of Prince Ali as he recruits elementals to assist him in defeating an ancient evil.  Jam and Fred delve deep into the development, gameplay elements, and main campaign of this late, but great, 16-bit Sega game.
