We're joined by Ashley to discuss Pokémon Sun and Moon. Also, why difficult games like Dark Souls are worth the effort, and we get nostalgic for Xbox.

Notes for this Podcast

Dave sits this one out, and instead I’m joined by Ash and Liam.

We talk about the Pokémon Sun/Moon hype following their recent release, discussing a few of the new game mechanics as I try desperately to stay relevant (having not touched the series since Pokémon Gold). We also talk a little about the Pokémon Uranium fan project.

I manage to swing the conversation towards Dark Souls (because of course) and we talk about the rewards of perseverance in tough games.

Liam talks about his retro game collection and in particular, his original XBOX console. He passionately talks about games such as The Suffering, Knights of the Old Republic and checks in with his old Halo clan; which was surprisingly still active!

Pokémon Uranium

Pokemon Uranium is a fan-made Pokemon RPG that has been in development for over 9 years. Set in the tropical Tandor region, the player will encounter more than 150 all-new species of Pokemon in their quest to collect all 8 Gym Badges and triumph over the Tandor League. Along the way, the player must battle against a sinister threat that's causing Nuclear Meltdowns, and will encounter an all-new type of Pokemon: the Nuclear type. Site: http://pokemonuranium.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/PokemonUranium Forums: http://pokemonuranium.com/forum/ Tumblr: http://pokemon-uranium.tumblr.com/ Wiki: http://pokemon-uranium.wikia.com/ Pokemon Uranium is developed by ​~JV~​, Involuntary-Twitch and the Uranium Team. This is a free fan-made project that is not affiliated with The Pokemon Company, Game Freak or Nintendo in any way. Follow the creators at: @JVuranium and @voluntarytwitch

Pokémon Uranium is a cancelled fan project created in RPGmaker XP. Whilst ambitious, the creators were hit with a cease and desist by Nintendo. However, development has since been taken over by the community and you can read about the project on the Pokemon Uranium wikia page.
