Published by 4Player Podcast on Aug. 17, 2020

With very little in the way of new releases to focus on in August, we have turned our eyes to the games that came out in the year 2000! All month long, we are playing and discussing nothing but games celebrating their 20th anniversary in the year of our lord, 2020. On this episode, we gush over Metal Gear: Ghost Babel, the original Deus Ex, and Perfect Dark! Brad hate-plays Shenmue and visits a classic entry in the Tales series, Tales of Eternia! There's also a healthy dose of Paper Mario in there for good measure.

This Week's Discussion Topics:

Metal Gear: Ghost Babel
Deus Ex
Tales of Eternia
Perfect Dark
Paper Mario
and more...

    Great episode as always! I'm really enjoying Y2K month so far and can't wait to watch you guys play more classics.

    I also want to say thank you to everyone at 4Player for continuing the podcast during this pandemic. It's one of the best podcasts out there and I look forward to every episode. Although I'm not very active in the community, I've been listening for about 10 years and loved every episode.

    I'll be happy to see you guys together on the couch again someday.

    Leaving a second comment because I thought of some more stuff I want to say!

    I totally understand Brad's dislike for PE2. The first game is way more unique. It has a better soundtrack, better atmosphere, and better characters. The first game is my favorite, but I adore both Parasite Eve games. That's right, both, all two of them.

    I've played through PE1 countless times, finished the Chrysler building, gotten a gun to 999 damage that kills pretty much everything in 1 shot. It's one of my favorite games ever and so is PE2. I'm currently working on getting the different endings in PE2.

    Interested to see how Nick's play through goes with Deus Ex. I love that game, but it definitely has a lot of Hank to it, especially at the beginning as you're learning how the mechanics behave.

    And Adam Jensen IS cool, Brad! Trench-coats can still be cool, but very few people can make it work. Your average joe that lies to wear them at anime conventions? Doesn't work. But Adam Jensen isn't letting the trench-coat wear him, it's the other way around.
