The OZARIN Podcast: S1E24

Now we’ve all played Breath of the Wild

This week, we rant about Nintendo’s shady business practices, only to sing their praises later for Breath of the Wild. We go on a tangent about gaming memorabilia, specifically vinyl soundtracks. And of course, we share what else we’ve been playing in the last few weeks.

Notes for this Podcast

The podcast is back, and now the whole gang has played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

I’m back with Liam and Dave to talk about the latest gaming news. Reunited after 3 weeks, our discussion takes tangents as we dispense our gaming knowledge for all the world.

As always, we have a poorly remembered game quote for you to guess at home.

Silent Hill 2

We fondly remember Silent Hill, before I’m warned of the shortcomings of the HD Collection.

Mocap video

Original Silent Hill 2 footage shot behind the scenes on the magnetic motion capture stage in 1999 has been intercut with the saddest cutscene ever produced by Team Silent. Feel the rich emotions all over again as James reveals the dark truth. Spoiler Alert.

Silent Hill voice actor Guy Cihi maintains the fandom on his Facebook Page, sharing the above motion capture video.

Keiji Inafune’s DuckTales art

An unused DuckTales art piece by Capcom’s legendary Inafune-san, presented by @VGArtAndTidbits - a great account, worth following for occasional gems such as this.

Sonic 3 & Knuckles - MegaDrive vs PC (Windows)

Sonic 3 & Knuckles Comparison - Mega Drive/ Sega Genesis vs PC Windows.

Using headphones (or by shifting audio balance) you can compare the original BGM to the remastered version on PC.

Whilst I concede that both of these are vastly different, I believe that the Steam version of Sonic 3 & Knuckles uses the original audio! Which is definitely my preference in this case.

Which do you prefer?

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 100% speed run

I mentioned players who are trying to exploit the game mechanics, and in particular, speed runners are using these exploits to dash through the game.

Despite its huge scale, the current record stands at a little under 50 hours for a 100% complete run. Unbelievable, but it’ll no doubt be improved upon for years to come.
