Pixelated Radio 79: Child of Light, Hearthstone, FFXIV, Game of Thrones, and much more

This week's episode is a poorer show than usual because Rich wasn't able to make it for a very good (and obvious reason): He's the only one married to a mother; speaking of mothers, Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there and, if you are a mother, I hope you practice responsible parenting and never play this show when your kids are around. What do we talk about on the show? Well, the full list can be found below, but the highlights are Child of Light, (more) Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Hearthstone, Neighbors, and Game of Thrones.

So, now that you have a general idea of what's on today's show, please go listen and, if you haven't already, rate/review and subscribe to the show on iTunes (and tell your friends too). Anyway, I do hope you enjoy the show and, won't you do us a kindness and be our favorite neighbor by rating us on iTunes? (Please do.) And if you're feeling extra generous, donate a little money or subscribe to show your support for the site and show(s), it's not free to host the site, the show; to make and record videos, and everything in between. You can also support the site by shopping at Amazon. Thanks regardless and have a lovely rest of the day, what's left of it, at least. (And check out FRONTBURNR!)

Xbox LIVE 'Deal of the Week' for 05/06 - 05/12/14

This week's Xbox LIVE 'Deals with Gold' is an improvement over the last few week's worth of deals, but still doesn't come close to the deals found on PSN recently, especially those found in their flash sales. That said, the highlights this week are all on the XBLA side of the marketplace--I like Fable Anniversary, but I think it will be $19.99 sooner than later--and, of all the XBLA games on sale, I recommend Pool Nation most of all. Sure, Fez is probably the best game of the bunch, but people already know all about Fez, while Pool Nation--which is a very good pool game--will likely be overlooked when it shouldn't be; unless you absolutely hate pool, buy Pool Nation while it's only $1.99. (And if you're into Killer Instinct, the Combo Breaker Pack is 25% off.)

Xbox LIVE 'Games with Gold' free game for 05/01 - 05/15/14: Dust: An Elysian Tail

The newest free game as part of Xbox LIVE's 'Games with Gold' promotion, Dust: An Elysian Tail, is one of the best freebies to date and one of the best XBLA games of all time. If you don't remember Dust: AET, well, it's a game mostly crafted by one person, Dean Dodrill, and originally an Xbox LIVE Indie Game, created with the now-dead XNA Game Studio; however, after winning Dream.Build.Play 2009, the game received a contract that would get it published on Xbox LIVE Arcade and the rest is history. (When looking at the XBLIG marketplace, especially now, it's hard to imagine Dust: AET was, at one point, just another XBLIG.)

As far as the game goes, Dust: AET is an absolutely gorgeous metroidvania-esque game with fantastic gameplay and a surprisingly great story that is rather adult and filled with great voice acting throughout. I remember, when the game first came out, a lot of people were giving it the cold shoulder because it's a "furry" game; if you don't play Dust: AET because it's populated by furries and not humans, well, I just feel sorry for you; actually, I feel nothing for you because only you are preventing yourself from enjoying one of the best games of the last few years for an incredibly stupid reason. Quick question: do you like Disney's Robin Hood? (Of course you do!) Well, um, that's a furry movie (as are many Disney movies if you think about it)!

Xbox LIVE 'Deal of the Week' for 04/29 - 05/05/14

This week's Xbox LIVE 'Deals with Gold' includes a little bit of LEGO and Star Wars, with a smidgen of LEGO Star Wars to make it all come together; and, if you're into music or dance games, Just Dance 2014 and Rocksmith 2014 Edition are both having small sales for all members, not just Gold members. Anyway, there's nothing too exciting this week, but, if you haven't played any of the LEGO games on sale, they're all worth checking out, especially The Complete Saga; and, while they're not great, both The Force Unleashed games are dumb fun--using the Force to fling storm troopers and ewoks never gets old.

PSP #169: Board Gaming with Ticket to Ride and Learning to Hate Sleeving Cards

In today's episode, I update y'all on the goings-on of the site and whatnot before officially selecting Heavenly Sword for Game Club #5--y'all have to play through chapter 2 by next Tuesday if you want to participate. After that, I talk about board gaming with Ticket to Ride for the first time--I only ever played the mobile version previously--my newfound hatred for sleeving cards, and a bit of Kickstarter-y goodness. Anyway, if you want to be extra cool, you should seriously check out Frontburnr, register, and join our lovely little party. And, if you're feeling extra generous, donate a little money or subscribe to show your support for the site and show(s), it's not free to host the site, the show; to make and record videos, and everything in between. You can also support the site by shopping at Amazon. Cheers, and have a lovely rest of the day.
