Makes with the working

  • Monitor times out.
  • This is annoying when you are halfway across the studio conked out on the wub sofa.

Shiny / Sounds

V-CHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

  • Ever play Ocarina of Time on a N64 emulator?
  • Yeah, it’s less jarring than this critter.
  • By default you get wicked hi-res menus (and art) mixed with some melted pixel graphics.
  • However, if you disable the pixel filter things start looking legit.
  • I’m not saying it prevents the characters from clashing with the 2006 3D background but it helps.
  • The English voice “acting” killed my houseplant.
  • The Dooood screaming penguins salted the earth it was planted in.
  • The background music is passable but it’s on a short loop.

J-CHAIRCHAIR

  • This is a PS2 game. It came out many moons ago
  • HD remake this is not. Those sprites look bad
  • They could really use with some variety on the background music. 5 hours in and I’ve just sort of learned how to tune it out
  • The voice acting is pure unadulterated fromage and I kind of like it for that reason, even if the main dude with the girl’s name sounds like a whiny bitch half the time

P-CHAIRCHAIR

  • I was a bit disappointed here.
  • The character sprites were just up scaled and they don’t look good when you’re playing at 1080p.
  • The background music starts to grate after a while and the voice acting, I get that were going for purposefully camp voice-acting.
  • But being campy on purpose is still being campy.

Control

V-CHAIRCHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

  • Worked OOTB with the Xclone conrolla and you can rebind all the things.

J-CHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

  • My only nitpick is that the camera and square selection can eat a gigantic bag of dicks
