This is pretty funny. I was in the next gen thread and there was a link to a fan-made PS5 UI concept (incredibly slick). The guy, it appears, is a Kinda Funny fan.


You need to scroll down to the Last of Us Part II Platinum Run section. It's a mock-up of what it could look like if Greg was streaming TLOU2. The comments are what are the funniest. There's one where Kevin's trolling Greg.

Hows the situation with the Gaming Side PS ILY, Kinda Funny Games I have been out of the loop and unsubscribed to them for a few months now and wondering if its better now.

I don't care for the iconic episodes but the new general direction of gamescast is good. Blessing has been good on kfgd

It's hard to tell if Gamescast has improved because the past episodes have all been focused on this one "iconic" gimmick. Once they run through these we'll get a better idea of where it's heading IMO.

Glad to see that Tim acknowledged how poor it was to put the Wii U stuff in the post-show last week. (Though now they should post it on YouTube as a separate video.)

Regarding the new Gamescast, they're definitely confused about the Donkey Kong games on Game Boy/Game Boy Color. There is a Donkey Kong Country port on Game Boy Color that came out at the end of the GBC's life so that might be what Blessing and Tim were thinking of.

But they skipped over the Donkey Kong Land series, which isn't incredible but they're all solid games. Land 2 and Land 3 take the level themes and music from Country 2 and Country 3 on SNES but the level layouts are brand new. (Though because it shares the themes and music, they look and sound inferior.)

The original Donkey Kong Land is almost completely original though, with unique level themes and its own soundtrack which has a lot of cool tracks.

The GBA conversation was strange. Part of that is because I don't think GBA has many "iconic" games. It's likely the "worst" Nintendo handheld for first party titles, without even getting an original Mario game.

They also left out some noteworthy third party titles like Mega Man Zero, Mega Man Battle Network and Sonic Advance in the discussion.

I don't know too much about Sam but he's sure got some takes.

"Star Fox Command was the only good Star Fox after the original." (wat)

"Mario Kart was a console series until it hit Switch." (Ridiculously wrong. DS is the second best selling game in the series behind Wii. MK7 on 3DS is the third best selling game in the series.)

"People don't think of Minish Cap because it released so close to the Oracle games." (They were 3 1/2 years apart.)

Edit: But he did throw out StreetPass games for the 3DS which is absolutely valid. Find Mii specifically is so much fun and iconic for the console. I miss that kind of stuff on Switch.

Gary Whitta is a treasure. I could easily see him killing it as a late-night talk show host or in a Daily Show type of role.

Tim is going to be disappointed if he thinks there's not going to be remasters.

Capcom not able to rerelease Resident Evil 4? Bethesda can't rerelease Skyrim?

The "yuck" was clearly referencing the idea of it being anywhere near the top 5 ICONIC DS games. You being shocked that I said yuck and then bringing up the quality of the game is bizarre and comes across as you not at all understanding what they were ranking the games based on.
It was the almost instant dismissal of games like Monster Hunter 4U and Bravely Default for 3DS that threw me off, especially the former. By the standards used to dismiss MH4U(that the series is associated on another platform) the Castlevania games should have been dismissed.

I think the handheld discussion was my least favourite of all of the ones they've done. My eyes damn near rolled out of my head when they started arguing that some of the consoles shouldn't have a Pokemon game in the top 5. Pokemon is Nintendo handheld gaming to most people around the world. Millions of people specifically buy these consoles and only play Pokemon games.

Yup, related to that when Imran was stanning for Black/White he should brought up the fact that N is one of the most popular & ICONIC Pokémon characters.

Yeah the handheld discussion wasn’t great... like the DS was so straightforward: Pokemon, NSMB, Mario Katy, Nintendo’s, Brain Training. Everything else is secondary on that system. And somehow they messed that up.

I guess that’s what happens when you have clear rules at the top of the show but then it slowly devolves into everyone just naming their favourite games (Castlevania on GBA? Really?)

Any of Black/White, HeartGold/SoulSilver, and Platinum are no-brainers for the DS list. Black and White is iconic for being the only Pokemon game with an actually good story and was extremely notable for only using new Pokemon. HeartGold and SoulSilver are still beloved for being some of the best remakes of all time, and Platinum is arguably the Pokemon game that is most circlejerked by the Pokemon community at this point in time.

... "Yuck" is a very strange word to use if you're not specifically referring to the quality of the game.

"Yuck" is not a word anyone would use to describe "a great game but it shouldn't be in the top 5" lol

What? "Yuck" is quite clearly referring to their very yuck opinion of having Elite Beat Agents as a TOP 5 MOST ICONIC DS GAME when there are so many games that should clearly be ahead of it. I'm not describing the game, dude. Why would I even be talking about the actual quality of the game? They clearly stated about 1000 times that actually being a good game is irrelevant to the list.
