In February, get ready for the return of RF Generation's community playthrough and another great title presented by the Shoot the Corecast!

FEBRUARY 2022 COMMUNITY PLAYTHROUGH

After a few month hiatus, the Playcast boys are back with a different kind of James Bond adventure than you might be used to.  In February, join the community playthrough as we make our way through one of the limited RPG titles offered on the original Game Boy, James Bond 007. Released a year after the smash hit Goldeneye on the N64, James Bond on the Game Boy is an action/adventure RPG where you play as the famed Agent 007.  While most games in this franchise were 1st and 3rd person shooters, this rarely discussed Game Boy title bunked the typical format and created a fresh narrative outside of the film series. However, fans of the movies won't be disappointed as they can expect some welcome fan service via appearances from a few favorite Bond villains!  The overhead view and mechanics are reminiscent of the original Legend of Zelda and similarly, your inventory can be assigned to your A & B buttons. Was James Bond 007's lack of popularity due to its late release on the Gameboy, or is this game best left CONFIDENTIAL?  Join us in February and find out!

James Bond 007 is available on the original Game Boy. We are very excited about February's pick, so be sure to obtain your copy as soon as possible and join us.

Also, be sure to join our forum HERE to discuss the game with fellow site members.

FEBRUARY 2022 SHMUP PLAYTHROUGH


Sometimes, a game developer comes up with a winner, a real hit. When that happens, and they follow that up with something different, the results aren't always as successful. That lack of success may be creative in nature, or purely financial. Or sometimes, the enormity of the initial success simply uses up all the oxygen in the room, so that subsequent attempts to replicate that success never quite get the same traction. It could be said that Irem's initial success of R-Type was a detriment to some of their subsequent games, because it's difficult to capture lightning in a bottle in the same manner. Such could be said about their vertical shooting game follow-up, Image Fight. While it was far from a failure, it certainly didn't replicate the success of its predecessor, both in terms of broad appeal, and overall success. Even so, the game was a popular arcade title, and saw conversions on a number of platforms, such as the PC Engine, Famicom and NES, Sharp X68000, and the FM Towns computer. More recently, the arcade version has been made available on PS4 and Switch, thanks to Hamster's Arcade Archives line.

On a fateful day in 20XX, the Earth's moon exploded into four large fragments and a multitude of meteors. Aliens from afar had succeeded in destroying the West's moon base. One after another, mankind's other military industrial space complexes were being lost. What mankind dreaded had come to pass. Scores of unidentified fighters were in the area. In addition, the moon's main computer, still intact after the explosion, had a strange vegetation coiled around it. Their trademark evil exploits being a dead giveaway, invaders from the Boondoggle Galaxy had arrived to take over the Earth. To counter these evil forces, leading scientists from all over the globe created the "OF-1" Fightership. Combat pilots depart the Earth to fend off the invaders and earn everlasting glory. Join the RF Generation Shmup Club in February 2022 as we take on the "vertical R-Type" known as Image Fight!

In this month's episode of the Playcast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) kick it back to the days of the NES and the magic of Disney, as they discuss a handful of Capcom titles they played in February: DuckTales, Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers, and The Little Mermaid.  In the ConcertCast, the guys reminisce about the best 5 shows that they've attended, and even take a little time to mention their worst.  If you're a fan of bidets or are on the fence about buying one, then this is definitely the show for you. What Disney franchises do the guys and their listeners think would make for good video games? And, how do these Disney Capcom titles rank amongst each other? Tune in and find out!

Are the Playcast boys two for two in picking great titles this year?  Find out by listening to our discussion of our February 2018 playthrough,  Vandal Hearts, a tactical RPG on the original Sony Playstation.  In this month's Playcast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) spend time discussing the intricate gameplay that makes Vandal Hearts so special. The guys also attempt to hash out the game's complex story, and chew over the game's graphics and sounds. Is this "cult classic" worthy of making its home in your PS1 library? Did Rich possibly purchase his greatest score of all time? And what the H, E, double hockey sticks is a "waifu?" You won't want to miss this episode of the RF Generation Playcast! 

Our 50th episode is on the horizon and we want YOU to send us an audio roast! We'll take some congrats and well wishes, but hilarity and cheap shots are always more than welcome. Audio should be limited to under 2 minutes, so if you're interested, please contact singlebanana about this project.

Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81), and returning guest, Pam (host of Cannot Be Tamed and Media Mavens) as they discuss a lesser known title from a well-known developer.  This month's Playcast plunges into Febrauray's site playthrough of Murdered: Soul Suspect, which was developed by Square Enix.  Opinions of this game typically range from both ends of the spectrum, so how will our cast of gamers fall on it?  Is it worth the few bucks a used copy commands, or are you better off leaving it on the shelf?  Did Rich enjoy the overall narrative?  Did Pam take issue with the combat?  And did Shawn enjoy making little cat sounds?  Be sure to tune in to this episode of the RF Generation Playcast to find out!

Posted under fundraiser, RFG Thanks, Thank You, 2016, February, submitters, approvers


**image from whak.com**

I know that everyone is excited to know the results of our RF Generation 2016 Fund Drive. I am very happy to announce that not only did we make our goal of $1000......... WE CRUSHED IT! Over the month of February, we raised a total of $1423.24!!  The staff and I are extremely pleased with these results and are excited about another great upcoming year on the site. Our members truly drive this site and we can't thank all of you who donated enough for your generosity.  Personally, I was overwhelmed by all of the awesome private messages from people telling me how much they enjoyed the site and how invaluable of a tool it was. There were several "lurkers" who donated generous amounts who I got to meet, and I heard from many of our old members who though they have been quiet for some time, made sure to come "home" to donate. Thank you, thank you, one and all!

At this time, the staff at RF Generation would like to take a moment to thank the rest of our members who donated since the last update and helped push us over the $1000 threshold:

Ze_ro   
Sauza12   
Crabmaster2000 
senseiman   
Razor Knuckles   
ericeskapade   
mightyqdawg   
josulli3   
Duke.Togo   
Boshamp   
BuriedOnMars
Tynstar
Deadman
ryanflucas


Prior to the release of this post, I will be sending out PMs to every donor who donated at least $10 to verify your donation amount and the number of tickets that will be placed into the raffle for you. PLEASE reply to this PM and let me know if your donation amount is correct (if you haven't already done so).  If you donated to the fund drive this month and have not received, a PM from me, as of this post, PLEASE send me a PM so that we can confirm your donation amount and get you the appropriate number of tickets for the raffle.  The quicker I can get donation amounts verified, the quicker I can conduct the raffle. If you have questions regarding the raffle, you can find more details here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=16247.0.

GRAND TOTAL: $1423.24

Posted under playthrough, February, 2016, Folklore, PS3


This February, we are taking a step away from classic platforming to bring you a beautiful and haunting action role-playing game. Folklore, which was developed by the now defunct, independent Game Republic, Inc. and released in 2007, is an RPG that is deeply rooted in the Celtic Otherworld of Irish Mythology. The game centers on two characters, a young lady named Ellen and a journalist named Keats, which are both playable in the game and have different intertwining plots. These two characters also differ in play style; Ellen uses a variety of powers for strategy and favors a defensive stance, while Keats attacks with more brute force and can release built up energy to perform stronger attacks for a period of time.  Together, the two of you work to unravel the mystery that the quaint village of Doolin hides. To do this, you must seek out the memories of the dead in the dangerous, Folk-ridden Netherworld.  Participants will not only battle the inhabitants of the Netherworld, but also go back and forth between there and Doolin village to solve puzzle-esque quests and advance the story.

While in the Netherwold, participants will utilize attacks called "folk," which are powers absorbed by defeating the various creatures there.  You absorb these powers by locking onto the creatures spirit and performing shaking and yanking motions with the Sixaxis motion control, rather than using a conventional button interface. While you can absorb the powers of nearly all of the inhabitants of the Neatherworld that you encounter, you can only map four at a time to the controller's action buttons. This adds an interesting dynamic to the game, since different kinds of "folk" are better suited to certain situations.
