DESCRIPTION
Become symphonic in Narita Boy! A radical action-adventure as a legendary pixel hero trapped as a mere echo within the Digital Kingdom. Discover the mysteries behind the Techno-sword, lock swords with the corrupt and tainted Stallions. Save the world!
EXPERIENCE
Some amazing neo-retro stylings wrapped around a hack and slash platformer with plenty of backtracking woven together with the suffering of the digital world creator told through collectible memories throughout.

Outstanding music that drives the emotion and action and almost becomes part of the story but not quite. These Stallions sent forth by HIM ain’t the Wild Stallions I think of during the 80s. But I did enjoy my ride on my mech enabled Stag (my spirit animal)…well…up until I didn’t enjoy it…and then I was like. F this
Art: a unique neo-retro style that employs a crt effect.
Animation: Really great! Fun to look at for sure
Music/Effects: punching above its weight class.
V/O: pretty nonsense but fitting
World Building: pretty good fantasy. Could use less techno babble
Currency: good will and floppies
Gameplay/Loop: metroidvania a little lackluster
AI/NPCs: dumb as dirt and on rails
Controls: mostly works when the task is not improbable
Interface: not that great. Health disappears when not in battle?
Replay/Endgame: like any metroidvania…long waits between visits
Score: 7 Wild Stallions out of 10 Cyber Stags

Quigley Down Under (1990) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi,

Dear Family, just an update on my job search so far. As you know it is difficult to find a job for us Aboriginals in British occupied Australia during the 1800s so you can imagine I had high hopes when I came across Mr. Marston’s newspaper ad for a manservant on his ranch. However, since taking the job, I have had to adjust my expectations to match the reality of manservant.

Anywho, A Yank showed up today to shoot dingoes with his sharp-shooting gun and he has the biggest mustache you have ever seen. You wouldn’t believe this thing! You could hide a couple of Baby Eating Dingoes and a Wallaby up in there….. and if that wasn’t enough facial hair for your Cheeto-Shaped-Grub Acid Trip Nightmares, then the fact that he has 2 more mustaches on his face surely will, one above each eye. It’s enough to make you want to go cliff diving with no water! Oh, that reminds me. How’s the baby? Too soon?

Well I have to go. It is time to serve Mr. Marston and the Yank their dinner. I hope they choke. Mr. Marston beats me and the Yank is giving me eyes that are saying “Before you make love to me. You have to say two words” How about No. There I only needed one.

Ok, Love you, and as always Didgeridoo and Kangaroo Poo.

No animals were harmed in the making of this intro. I mean…why would I even say that! We totally harmed the animals. Randy.

IS THERE ANY DEALS
$13.39 (Humble Bundle) usually 19.99
https://isthereanydeal.com/game/chickenpolice/info/
DESCRIPTION
A wild tale of love, death, chickens, and redemption! Chicken Police is a buddy-cop noir adventure, with a carefully crafted world, a gritty story, and lots of absurd humor. The game mixes elements of classic adventure games with visual novel-style storytelling
EXPERIENCE
What happens when Frank Miller’s Sin City walks into a Buddy Cop movie about a couple of anthropomorphic Chickens in a town full of animals, murder, class warfare and racism? Well you get this clucking thing.

Heading on down to Clawville! Mesmerizing. Bwock bwock
Art: Clucking cool style that takes a minute to get used to. Noir live action anamorphic characters in a steamy city. Animal heads on human bodies. This game gets my costuming award for indie games of 2020
Animation: Pose to Pose pivot point movement that works in the context of this game.
Music/Effects: The music pulls (mostly jazz noir) really pulls you into the moment.
V/O: Very competent voice over. I would listen to this as an audiobook anyday.
World Building: Built on a lot of tropes but in a good way. A variation on theme that allows exploration into some serious topics like race relations, social classes and relevant issues of today and yesterday.
Currency: Good Will
Gameplay/Loop: Explore, Investigate, Question and some simple puzzle solving.
AI/NPCs: The NPCs are on rails. We are revealing a story and have a small amount of control over relationships.
Controls: Mouse clicks. Clicky Clicky.
Interface: Minimal. Very polished and appropriate to the style and theme of the game.
Replay/Endgame: Some replay value inline. No manual save system so you go from start to finish and then you would have to start all over again. Probably a one time play through and then wait a while and forget everything. I didn’t reach the endgame. But I think I know where it is going.
Score: 9 Dames out of 10 Walking in and out of my Clucking life

The Towering Inferno (1974) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi,

Oh man, you guys won’t believe all the vintage crap I found at an estate sale over the weekend after the little old lady down the street passed away. Let’s see. I got pack of Virginia Slims, $140 dollars worth of vulgar underwear, One of them old school corded phones with 9 foot of curly cord and my best find; a case of Newman’s Own salad dressing from 1989. Oh man that was good year for Salad Dressing…. and vulgar underwear!

Anywho, I’m exhausted after all that shopping so I’m still in bed this morning. Right now I’m in my vulgar underwear smoking Virginia Slims and guzzling down Newman’s Own salad dressing. Sacrifices were made on the old grocery shopping this week. Corners were cut! Also, good thing this is an audio only podcast or you guys might see some Dunaway Thigh. hahaha

ahh, crap…spilt my Newman’s Own…no worries… I will just clean up with these old rags I have lying around and toss them into that pile of oily rags on the floor. Better get rid of this cigarette too. Toss.

Alright, so…This week on Filmsack we take the scenic elevator all the way up to the Promenade Room to sack the classic….(sniff sniff) hey do you guys smell something? It smells like smoke. Probably nothing. Where was I…oh yeah…we take the scenic elevator all the way…(sniff sniff) that is definitely smoke. OH NO! My rag pile!

Randy, Randy, fetch me my 9 foot “cor-ded phone so I can call Paul New-mon! Save meeeee! or call Steve McQueen to save me! Oh no the 89! Randy
