Pixelated Radio 142: Destiny 2, Splatoon 2, Fortnite, Gigantic, Deadcore, The Golf Club 2, and More

Today's episode of Pixelated Radio sees the return of Rich (yay!) and the absence of Cory (until he randomly shows up later in the show) as the hosts with the most (inadequacies) talk about a smorgasbord of games, including Splatoon 2, Destiny 2, Fortnite, Gigantic (kind of...), The Golf Club 2, Deadcore, and more. After that, they talk about some books (and a movie based on one said book), including Ready Player One and the booby-filled, Monster Musume. Cheers and enjoy the show.

The Golf Club 2 Review (Xbox One)

My father found his way on the green in regulation, his confidence high despite being annoyed by his inability to hit the long ball even in a video game, so sure he’d be able to one-putt the green and land himself a birdie since his ball landed a mere 8 feet from the hole. He pulled back on his putter and swung forward. His putt went long, very long. He looked at me, confused, and then returned to the game, pulled back again and swung. This time he was short, very short. He looked at me again, his eyes defeated, silently asking me, “Why my dear son, why is this game treating me like golf does in the real world?” I had no reply and could only watch as it took my father five strokes before his ball finally landed in the cup. Upon seeing his triple bogey appear in his scorecard, my father promptly handed me the controller in a way that said without words, “I don’t ever want to play this game again.”

That was my father’s first and last experience with The Golf Club 2.

Now, I don’t think The Golf Club 2 is bad and it is unquestionably a significant improvement over the previous game, at least on Xbox One (where I played both); however, the biggest problem with the original game still exists with The Golf Club 2: it is, in no way, accessible for casual players. There is no easy difficultly and no assists of any kind for those who just want to relax with a round of digital golf every now and again. This, of course, won’t be an issue for the most extreme golf fans who love a challenge and want nothing more than to devote many hours to learning the nuances of how far back one needs to pull their putter in order to hit the ball exactly 57 feet, but for anyone else, anyone who enjoys golf games for the relaxing, beautiful simplicity they can be, The Golf Club 2 is not the game for them.

PSP #386: Summer 2017 Anime Preview (Part 3)

In today's show, Marc spends most of the time, once again (and this time, for the last time), previewing another good chunk of the new summer anime, four more series, including Welcome to the Ballroom (Ballroom e Youkoso), Gamers!, In Another World With My Smartphone (Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni), and Princess Principal, one of which is their early pick for anime of the season. Other than that, Marc talks a wee bit about games, including a sprinkling of Horizon: Zero Dawn and a taste of The Golf Club 2. Anyway, cheers and enjoy the anime-zing(ly dancy) show.

Anyway, that's it and that's all folks, and, if you're feeling extra generous, you can become a patron, donate a little something-something, or subscribe to show your support for the site, podcast(s), and all the ridiculous jazz we make over here at Pixelated Sausage.

The Pixelated Paranormal Podcast #34: Pygmies, Birdies and Bowies!

Join the fellas as they discuss a multitude of things that have no real relation to one another (as if they ever do) like the epic battle of pygmies vs. cranes, mummies in Peru, and David Bowie's super sexy pool parties! Cheers and enjoy the show (while wondering if there's life on mars; what an oddity of space that would be).

PSP #385: Where Marc Makes Orphans and Doesn't Protect 'Em

In today's show, Marc takes a break from all the summer anime to talk about some movies, many of which are old, including North by Northwest and Gone with the Wind. After that, Marc talks about Horizon: Zero Dawn and why, despite some usual open-world faults, it's one of their favorite games of the generation and quite possibly their favorite PlayStation 4 game. Anyway, cheers and enjoy the anime-zing(ly anime-free) show.
