Review: Snow Bros. Nick & Tom Special – A Tired Bubble Bobble-Alike That’s Finally Affordable

przez admin

Snow thank you.

Don’t you think a gaming hero should have a sort of heroic name? Rastan! Sparkster! Astyanax! Right? Yet here we are with the Snow Bros, Nick and Tom. Nicholas Snow and Thomas Snow. Not bad names – we can foresee a gritty murder mystery series starring one Thomas Snow coming to ITV in the near future – but not names that inspire enormous confidence in their capability. Nor should they, because the Snow Bros are a bit rubbish. The friendly local Twin Princesses get abducted, while Nick and Tom get turned into snowmen. And not even the flying kind who take you to see Santa then melt away while leaving behind a scarf in a skillfully produced allegory for grief. But we digress.

Toaplan’s Snow Bros. is basically a take on Bubble Bobble, really, but the difference is that Bub and Bob’s inaugural appearance is a masterpiece, and Snow Bros. is a weak imitation. The game surely has a cult following and prices on the secondhand market are sky-high, but it’s just not that fun to play. Movement and jumping feel floaty and weird. Everything is sort of grotesque-looking, but not in that Binding of Isaac gross-cute kind of way. You walk around freezing enemies. You collect various items for points. There’s very little to it and its appeal seems to extend only to its fans. A Snow Bros. fan, can you imagine?

The Electronic Wireless Show podcast episode 187: the funniest games special

przez admin

After some of the stuff we talked about in last week’s episode, I decided to take us further down the giggle chute to talk about funny games in general. What games are funny? Why, and how? Is it easier for games to be funny when they’re not trying to be? Should self-described funny games be avoided entirely?

Because of this, we end up talking about Blorko again. We also nearly come to war about the difference between randomly improvising funny stuff and deciding that saying 'egg’ a lot of is funny. There is a difference, but you know it when you see it. Matthew’s life is like a sitcom, and also we apologise to Henry Cavill for forgetting his birthday. Sorry Henry. Please come on the show.

przez admin

There are times when you’ll need to type a character that isn’t displayed on your keyboard, be it a letter with an accent, the degree symbol, or a currency symbol.
