Parry's Pickups! Episode 94 - Porky Pig, Puzzle & Dragons, Tetris and Sims 3

 

It's games from every format under the sun in this episode of Parry's Pickups! That's a whole 4 different formats, crazy!

We begin with Porky Pig's Haunted a Holiday, which is, dare I say it, a SNES 'Hidden Gem'!

We move onto Puzzle & Dragons for the 3DS, which is apparently pretty good, but Tom needs to play it more.

Then, yes, you guessed it, more Tetris! This time for the NES.

Lastly Tom is shocked by the Wii version of Sims 3, a game where you have direct control over your Sim, madness!

FIRE FLAMES AND FIGHTING GAMES (PS1 one-on-one Fighting games) - Music Video

Here's something entirely new for the channel, a Music Video!

This video was actually made a long time and has been available on YouTube before on another long deactivated channel, hopefully now the video will stay up rather than being taken down due to Copyright Claims.

Tom created this video to showcase his love of Fighting Games, specifically those available for Sony's Playstation console in the case of this video.

Music: Through the Fire and Flames

Artist: DragonForce

Parry's Pickups! Episode 93 - Lemmings Special!

 

It's been a long time coming, but it's finally time for our very first Lemmings Special! I've been a keen collector of Lemmings games for a few years now. I first fell in love with the game after being exposed to it on a friend's Atari ST.

It wasn't until I got a Philips CD-I though, that I got my own copy of the game. So join me as we talk a little about my most recent Lemmings pickups and compare and contrast the Game Boy and Game Gear versions of the game, and more besides!

Launch Boks 'The Last Warrior' Unboxing | The Last Launch Boks...

Join Mike and Tom as they delve into another Launch Boks! This time though, the excitement is tinged with sadness as we are led to believe that this is the very last Launch Boks we will ever receive...

There doesn't seem to be any way to sign up for this fantastic subscription box over at Launch Bok's website anymore but you can still pick up some great items from them directly, so if there's anything you've seen in this video or in the previous unboxings that we've done you may still be able to get hold of some stuff.

Tom Plays Windjammers (PS4)

It's hot out! Time for some Windjamming! Whatever that is..?

Turns out Windjammers is a sort of Tennis/Frisbee hybrid and it's really fun! The game was originally released in 1994 and appeared in arcades and on Neo Geo home systems, while it did have a release on the Wii's Virtual Console in Japan, the PS4 is certainly the most fully-featured version and the most accessible.

It's obvious to see how this game has influenced titles like Mario Tennis, It's extreme, fast-paced one on one fantasy sports action, let's jam!

 

 

Tom Plays Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (PS4)

Join Tom as he gets stuck into the Online side of the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. He's experienced some lag previously, so isn't holding out hope it'll be any better this time...although he's pleasantly surprised as it turns out, the Online aspect of Anniversary Collection is working a charm (mostly) and it's the next best thing to being at an Arcade, a new challenger awaits!

Tom Plays Golden Axe 1, 2 and 3 - Sega Mega Drive/Genesis Classics (PS4)

 

In this edition of Tom Plays Tom is joined by Claire to attempt a play-through of Golden Axe...then Golden Axe 2...and lastly Golden Axe 3.

Here's the thing, they keep failing and moving onto the next one.

However, you lucky viewers get to compare and contrast all 3 games in one video and see a relationship stretched to breaking point as Tom constantly and accidentally attacks Claire's character on screen...

STC25 - 25 Years of Sonic the Comic

On the 3rd of June 2018, Neil and Tom headed to Manchester to attend STC25, an event celebrating 25 years since the first issue of Sonic the Comic.

The British Sonic the Comic was quite different from others, often referred to as Fleetway Sonic, after the comic's publisher. It had it's own unique characters and stories built around the video games.

It's amassed a massive following since it was first published, a enthusiastic group of fans even created their own continuation of the Comic online, having recently released their 275 Issue to co-inside with the event.
