Posted under playthrough, June, 2016, Illusion of Gaia, playcast


For our June Community Playthrough, we will be playing the often overlooked hidden gem for the Super NES, Illusion of Gaia!  This title (known in PAL regions as Illusion of Time) is an action RPG whose gameplay can most likely be compared to such other SNES classics as Secret of Mana and Secret of Evermore, and has also drawn comparisons to the classic Legend of Zelda games.  However, this game features a unique leveling system that eschews experience points in favor of a permanent stat bonus every time you clear an area of enemies.

In Illusion of Gaia, you play as Will, a young boy from a small seaside town.  He accompanies his father on an expedition to uncover the secrets of the Tower of Babel, but the explorers instead met with a mysterious disaster.  Will, the only known survivor of this expedition, manages to make it back to his hometown, although he does not remember how.  Now, a year later, a mysterious being known as Gaia tells him that he must leave his home to save the world from a coming evil.  Perhaps you may also finally discover the truth behind the ill-fated expedition along the way?

Illusion of Gaia will take you on an epic journey across many real-world, historical locations, including ancient Incan ruins and the Great Wall of China.  Armed with only a flute, you will have to defeat many enemies and epic bosses, solve puzzles, and harness the powers that Will gains along the way.   Will you be able to save the world from its impending doom? Join us this June for what will be a playthrough of epic proportions and give it a shot!

Join RFGeneration Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81), Floyd (Fleach), Steven (Disposed Hero), and special guest, the bright-eyed and fun-loving, YouTube sensation, JRock the GameRocker, as we discuss our March playthrough of Life is Strange.  In this episode, we discuss the story, gameplay mechanics, and soundtrack, and do a chapter-by-chapter analysis of the game and talk about the decisions we made and how they ultimately impacted our experiences. If you played Life is Strange with us last month, or have played it before, I think this podcast should be a must listen. As always, we are always happy to hear your thoughts on the game and our podcast on our discussion page (linked below) and are always happy to respond and discuss the game more. So, how did all five of us like the game?  Which Blackwell Academy ladies were some of us crushing on?  And, which one of us clearly despises Yoko Ono? You can get the answers to these questions and many more by tuning into our podcast this month! 

We hope you enjoy our show, and please join our discussion on the thread linked below.  Also, be sure to rate and write a review of the show on iTunes to help us increase our listenership. Thanks for the listen!

Posted under playthrough, May, 2016, Bully, playcast


We have seen a nice increase in the number of participants in our monthly playthroughs and the forums have been buzzing with activity lately.  We hope that all of you who participated in March enjoyed Life is Strange and those of you who are joining us now are having a good time with the classic RPGs Ys: Books I & II.  The past year has been a lot of fun for the hosts and we would all like to thank you for your continued support and dedication to the playthroughs.

Next month, we are tackling a title that falls on both sides of the spectrum as it is a multiple award winner and best-seller, but also a game that was controversial for its time.  The publisher Rockstar Games (creators of the Grand Theft Auto series, is no stranger to controversy.  However, with Bully, Rockstar took the fight off of the streets and into the classroom.

Posted under Playcast, Happy Holidays, Episode 0, Zero, Modern, Retro, Parasite Eve, Kingdom Hearts


As some of you may be aware, the first episode that we recorded for our podcast wasn't "Episode #1 - Phantasy Star & The Last of Us," but was instead, a pilot episode for February 2014's playthroughs of Parasite Eve and Kingdom Hearts. After coming up with the idea to do a podcast, we approached the "powers that be" about the idea and were asked to give them a sample of our proposed show. Since then, only the site administrators, a few friends who we got feedback from, and those of you who donated over $20 during the last fundraiser, have gotten to listen to the show.  As a gift to all of our members here and listeners out there, we have decided to release this "Episode Zero" in full, with a new intro recorded by our very own GrayGhost81. I think you'll find it fun to go back and listen to how raw and inexperienced we were, and how much we have improved the show since our beginnings. I think you'll also enjoy the games discussion and maybe even decide to add one or both of them to your collection. Myself, Grayghost81, Fleach, and Disposed Hero would like to wish all of our members here at RF Generation a safe and happy holiday season! Thanks for listening and we hope you'll stick around for what promises to be an exciting 2016 of gaming.

Posted under playthrough, announcement, games, October, retro, modern, Playcast, Bloodlines, Resident Evil


What October would be complete without horror themed playthroughs on the retro and modern side?  Over the years, we've played some fun and exciting titles including Alan Wake and Fragile Dreams on the modern side and two installments of the Castlevania series on the retro side, Simon's Quest and Symphony of the Night. Next month on the modern playthrough, we delve into another popular franchise with Resident Evil, which for content purposes, the GC/Wii versions will be played by the hosts.  Those wishing to play the original on the PSX are still encouraged to play along, but please note that you may miss out on parts of the discussion and may not be able to abide by the same checkpoints.  On the retro side, we return to the Castlevania series once again with our playthrough of Castlvania: Bloodlines. This game is an oddity in that it was the only Castlevania game produced solely for a Sega console.  Does it hold up to the rest of the series? Let's find out together!

If you thought July was action-packed, wait until you see what we have in store for you in August. Get ready for another great month of community adventure as the RF Generation Playthrough Group takes you to Slumberland and Dubai, two once peaceful areas that are now stricken with unrest. Join us as Fleach moves over to the retro side and hosts a very unique, action-platformer on the NES, Little Nemo: The Dream Master. This title was voted on by the community and we hope that you will join us in playing this classic.  Disposed Hero hops over to the modern side this upcoming month to host Spec Ops: The Line, a 3rd person shooter with an emphasis on squad tactics and cover. While the game is little talked about, it has an extremely compelling story and won several industry awards, including Best Narrative at Machinima's Inside Gaming Awards.
