Posted under playthrough, community, james bond, image fight, shmup, February, 2022


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) turn hepcats as they discuss Super Giant's indie darling, Transistor, and create a list of recommended jazz albums in this month's ConcertCast segment. Shawn is admittedly not a big fan of SG's first title, Bastion, so how will returning to play another game by this developer fair? The guys breakdown all of the ins and outs of the game, including gameplay mechanics, graphics, and the game's lush soundtrack. Is Transistor a crumbling utopian, sci-fi adventure that you should add to your collection or download queue?  Stay tuned and fine out!
