Amazing that this exact video exists
I don’t know why I recognized this so clearly, I’ve not played a klonoa for more than an hour maybe (and at that, it was mostly the wonderswan one). they’re cool! I’ve just never owned any of them (other than the wonderswan one… though now I have klonoa 1 and 2 by absorbing some other folks’ stuff)
exodus funny you should say that, I also somehow inherently knew this was Klonoa (and even watched that same exact oddly specific YouTube video to confirm it) despite never personally playing any of the games. Must have seen it in a video play through or something? Either that or the Klonoa/esper “wahoo” is just such a primordial force that we all recognize it implicitly on some level!
kory might just be osmosis through growing up in the 90s or something!
The panel getting crushed by k thor in the lightning round was very fun
i have fond memories of playing klonoa (I remember it being really easy and just kind of having a great afternoon with it around middle school) but it’s certainly not my favorite game or anything. i just really love the wahoo!! it’s one of those sound effects that really seared itself into my mind, so much so that I once told myself “if I ever make music or something i’m gonna sample that klonoa wahoo”
esper I immediately recognized this as well. Klonoa is a solid platformer and the language they speak is pretty great as well.
Editing and soundbites are always fun, thanks for putting your polish into the podcast, keep it up!
cheezopath came here to say this
dylanfills You’re way ahead of me here
I think there is a lot of contesting to be made in the decisions regarding Hollow Knight in this bracket. I would maybe say that Celeste Mountain should have taken the first round, but I’ve played all the C-sides of Celeste and gave up at the last boss of Hollow Knight, so maybe that’s saying something
do an all mountain bracket next time. The mountain they always have in zelda, an ssx mountain, etc
yeso I would like to nominate DK mountain, the mountain from Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy and Mt. Zugzwang from DQV
穴 Getting Over It Mountain is OP
re concept of which mountain would win in a fight: I’m sensing violence island may have untapped improv-zone like potential to confuse and torment
Where’s my dune.io game?
Human Players navigate through an asymmetric game against worms with different world visibility. Worm players must find food and resist being ridden by unskilled humans. Dead humans are reborn as baby worms and spend time gathering points to unlock human perks.
Frank knows 8-bit home computer games too well.
that’s not real come on
That lightning round was so good, please bring it back.
Also hollow knight would lose to a human adult because he’s just a lil bug and would easily be squashed. Also ‘the knight’ is the name of the player character from hollow knight, hollow knight is the name of the princess.
wouldn’t a volcano be the only type of mountain that could win a fight?
yeso what about a bigger mountain that can have a rockslide?
exodus maybe or would that just strengthen the other mountain…
