Have you ever forgotten your own birthday? We sure did. Happy belated anniversary to us! Last week was our one-year anniversary and we missed it from all the excitement talking about playing old games. Can you blame us? And this week we’re back with even more. We’ve all been chipping away at our most recent roulette game, Borderlands 2, and really enjoying it. But that’s not all!

Josh has been playing the popular ROM hack that randomizes Super Metroid and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and combines them into a single game. It’s called the Super Metroid and A Link to the Past Crossover Item Randomizer. It’s ridiculously absurd and Josh is obsessed. He’s also put some time into the GBA game Fire Emblem. It’s his first foray into the series and he’s excited.

Elliot played the MMORPG Final Fantasy XI almost compulsively for the last week. I think we’ve found his weakness. He jumped onto a free login campaign that started in late May and never looked back. He’d been active in the game for a few years back when it first launched, but hadn’t played in a while and it’s changed a lot. It’s like riding a bike though, right?

Stevo’s kickstarted game, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, will be out later this year and the developers have released the spinoff game, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, for free to backers. And he’s been going to town on it and loving it. He’s also got a glowing review of the somewhat little-known Vita game, Severed. Lastly, he’s still chipping away at Final Fantasy X. He’s not having the best time yet, but Josh and Elliot leave him with some words of encouragement.

And to round us out we have another letter from beloved listener, Spider. It’s a great one, thanks again Spider! Keep them coming. We close out with a couple of Roulettes! It’s been two weeks since we rolled Borderlands 2 so it’s time for a new one. What will it be? Then Josh decides to let the sacred RNG decide what game he’s going to play on his own for the next two weeks. In the meantime, come join in on the discussion! Leave a comment, tweet us at @rbpcast, or shoot us an email at [email protected] and we’ll talk about it on the next episode. You can also check out our Twitch stream at twitch.tv/ratherbeplaying or send us some nice anniversary flowers. See you all in two weeks!
