  1. A PC adaptation of a Wii on-rails shooter that shifted the shooting mechanic into a typing mechanic in homage to a surreal 90s Dreamcast title doesn't sound like something that would turn out well. However, Typing of the Dead: Overkill inexplicably works. The quirky game asks players to improve their typing skills while also playing through a grindhouse schlock-fest of gore and f-bombs. Despite the educational nature of its mechanics, kids should definitely not play Typing of the Dead: Overkill. We can't stress that enough. But adults? You make your own choices and decide whether this C-tier romp through zombies and low-budget film cliches might just secretly be one of the best games of all-time. Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: Undertale 'Gaster's Legacy' by DS (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03761) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is available, as well! If you want to have your opinion heard on air, share your opinion in the comments, follow the show on Twitter, and participate in the weekly polls: @BestGamesPeriod New episodes of The Best Games Period will be released every Monday Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  3. Two games concluded the run of Capcom's golden age of IP development with their semi-independent Clover Studio: God Hand and Okami. There are few games with the pedigree of Okami; directed by Hideki Kamiya (the creator of Viewtiful Joe, Devil May Cry, and future creator of Bayonetta) and produced by Atsushi Inaba (one of the most successful game producers of all time). Released in 2006 for the PlayStation 2, Okami holds the world record as being one of the least commercially successful game to garner multiple game of the year awards. Does it stand as one of the best games period a decade later? We also touch on the mystery of how the iconic ring sound effect from Sonic the Hedgehog made its way onto gas station cash registers across North America. If you've heard that sound at a local gas station, let us know in the comments!

  5. The second most sold game of all time, Wii Sports dominated gaming culture and beyond when it released on the Wii back in 2006. Bundled with the Wii and sold on the promise of bringing gamers and non-gamers together, Wii Sports made waves for being the harbinger of a new wave of motion controlled games that would change the landscape of gaming forever. While the promise of what the Wii could deliver ultimately fell shorter than what many had hoped, Wii Sports remains as a fond memory for many. Is it one of the best games period? We ran into some technical difficulties with Daniel's audio this week. Apologies if the somewhat garbled sound detracts from what is otherwise a very fun episode!

  7. The latest Skylanders installment introduces new characters, toys, and a whole new portal for capturing the bad guys. Skylanders Trap Team expands on the previous Skylander entries by introducing powerful new enemies known as Traps. These are the most villainous baddies around, but once they are defeated and trapped using the new Traptanium Portal, they can be called upon in-game as new playable characters. Also, once trapped, these villains will lend their voices to the toy in which they have been captured. Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing said in an announcement that, “with Skylanders Trap Team, we’re no longer just letting kids bring their toys to life inside the game anymore. This time, we’re letting them pull their toys out of the game as well." Trap Team can be pre-ordered from now until its release on October 2 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. There will also be an entirely different adventure available on 3DS.
