This month’s Coolsoge kicks off with a bang as the Mappers are joined by fellow David Cage veteran Destiny Sturdivant to talk a boatload of games and the very ridiculous task that we’re all going to undertake this fall. Also more than a little time is spent educating Jackson on just what Meatloaf wouldn’t do for love, because the boy has to learn somehow. The answer is potentially “collect multiple cows” or “descend into Rapture” or “select ninja dog.” But the smart money is on “keep his eyes dry when a certain flower girls eats it.” Will we ever learn the truth? Probably not on Disc 1, but if you stick around for the secret ending and you unlock the 4th level of the tie-in cell phone game, maybe the true answer will arise from the lifestream. Only time will tell.
The Coolsoge Backlog Slog begins with us starting to play Final Fantasy VII! We’ll cover up through disc 1 next month, and Matthew will be a nostalgic, mopey mess for this strangely maligned once-unassailable game.
You can find Destiny on Badland Girls, a cool junk culture podcast that we heartily endorse!
