LoboCast Episode 4 Is Now Live!

For those of you who haven’t heard, LoboCast is a series of Podcasts created by the wonderful people from LeftHanded Games, who are currently responsible for the upcoming 3D platformer Lobodestroyo, which will be releasing on the Nintendo Wii U… as well as some other consoles including the Ouya and PC/Mac. Check out the first episode here!

Episode 4 features a special guest star, the holy overlord of the StartSelect Network [the site which hosts the LoboCast], Adam Jones, where we find out that maybe it really is about who you know! The gang also goes down nostalgia lane discussing some IPs which they think deserve an overdue reboot or sequel, such as F-Zero and Viewful Joe! Finally, the Better Know A Backer segment returns, last week their victim was your’s truly [ME!] where I was apparently a British George Takei, and this week they prey on the unsuspecting Photon, with a very inaccurate accent [unless he actually is a Snake Oil Salesman who thinks he is a Japanese schoolgirl]! Remember, this segment is all for fun, nothing serious… heck I nearly pissed myself this week!

LoboCast Episode 4: Vice President Croosh Boondicoot!

Like the last episode, the game is family friendly, the podcast… not so much! Enjoy!

Midora Hits Kickstarter Target, Will Come To Wii U and 3DS

Fans of retro inspired games rejoice, because there’s another adventure on its way to both Wii U and 3DS in the form of Midora! Described on its kickstarter page as a “90s inspired action-adventure” and “a love letter to the classic 2D action-adventure games, like The Legend of Zelda or Secret of Mana” this could be another great indie release to keep your eyes out for when it releases – the current target is January 2015.

At the time of writing it had achieved just over $67,500 of its initial $60,000 goal, and although Wii U and 3DS are listed as stretch goals, that target is only to accelerate the porting proccess. There’s still a few hours left to back the project too, so if you fancy it head on over to the project page and put down $10 for a copy of the game on the platform of your choice!
