For years I have found myself moving away from the mainstream gaming press, and even reaching the point of outright ignoring it. I could not mention the last time I went to any of the mainstream gaming press sites just to browse and see what news is coming out. The only time I end up there is seemingly by accident, browsing a forum, board, or group dedicated to an individual game or series that then links to a news release pertaining to the topic. Upon reflection of my own browsing habits and years of history I found that this relative ignorance of what the mainstream gaming press is actually saying pre-dates plenty of the recent major controversies. I was already years deep into this willful ignorance when Gamer Gate started to blow up. The exact reasons I started these habits are long forgotten, but with some time passing and new developments of the day, as well as the effect it had on everybody’s browsing habits, then there might be more reasons than ever to justify the abandonment of the mainstream critic.

During the last episode, I once again suffered a humiliating defeat at the endcap of my enemy, the Budget Game Wall. You know that thing, right? No? Well, this endcap (who is a complete jerk, mind you) used to sit on the end of the video game isle at my local toy store, displaying the unloved and unlovable from the NES, both old and new, at an attractive $20 price point. But I wasn’t there on that fated day for game shopping, no. My task was much simpler: get a functioning NES controller, one I ideally wouldn’t have to share with my siblings. And since I still had another six months (at least) before my SNES came out of layaway, I needed something help me play Final Fantasy and the string of rentals and loans that would follow. But I had no idea how much a controller would cost, having misplaced my most current Toys ‘R Us circular, so I brought all $40 of my lawn-mowing money. My mom gave me a knowing look at this act, but said nothing to stop my action. It was fine, though: This was a utility trip, not an excuse to look at games, okay mom?. There was no reason I was going to need all that cash, right?

Our fourth game of 2018, was the true definition of a "cult classic." In this month’s Playcast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) discuss that notoriously bawdy, foul-mouthed, platforming, red squirrel as they breakdown Conker’s Bad Fur Day. Known more in collector circles for its high price, adult content, potty humor, and movie references, the guys ultimately put its gameplay to the test. Is this early 3-D platformer satisfying, or does it ignite controller chucking frustrations in the boys? Which version of the game (N64, Xbox [Live & Reloaded], or Xbox One [Rare Replay Collection]) do the guys recommend most? And does the price of this game justify picking up a copy or throwing your current copy up for sale while the market is high? The answer to these questions and may more in this @#$%& episode of the RF Generation Playcast. Don’t miss it!
