Rather Be Playing 30: Octo Travels

Rather Be Playing Episode 30 Octo Travels - Octopath Traveler, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mega Man X Legacy Collection, NES Classic, Hollow Knight, Nioh

Something special is in the air! Is it a blue moon? A shooting star? Mars at perigee? Even rarer! All three of us were spotted in the same room at the same time! So naturally we decided to play a ton of Rocket League and Towerfall. We may also have recorded our dirty thirty-eth episode. After many long travels, Josh and Elliot found themselves in the vicinity of a wild Stevo for a few brief hours. Have a listen to see what was borne from the historic reunion.

Okay, how about a hint? Josh is wrapping up his 100% playthrough of Octopath Traveler. Square Enix’s old-school-flavored JRPG has hit a soft spot in Josh’s heart and he has a lot to say about it. But not just that, Josh ALSO got in on the Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker action. Apparently visiting family nets some people tons of Nintendo eshop cards. As if two games weren’t enough for the man, Josh continued on and played Mega Man X Legacy Collection. The guy is a beast and doesn’t know how to not play games on his Switch.

Stevo has also been busy these last couple weeks, having finished off Hollow Knight. He still has a bit to go for 100% but the main job his done. His focus, however, was square on Nioh, Team Ninja’s take on the Dark Souls formula. How did he like it? Only one way to find out!

And finally Elliot hit up some classic games this week when he came into possession of a NES Classic! Does this violate #NoNewGames2018? It’s too close to call, but we’ll give the tie to the runner. He’s started up with the original Castlevania and loving the nostalgia trip.

That’ll do for this week. Next week will be our breakdown of last week’s roulette roll, Tacoma. In the meantime, come join in on the discussion!
