PlayStation 2 review

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Okay with this episode there's two things one I tell you about a game that I am creating for you guys to play on the patreon and second I give you a review of PlayStation 2. That part alone is a little weird cuz I'm about 20 years too late but I find it really interesting and kind of regret not getting it when I had the chance.

Good morning everybody. I know, I know, I was going to take a little bit of time off, but I just couldn't stay away. This is tangents with toby. I am him. What is going on you guys? Today we are going to have a little bit of a jam pack show. Nothing to you know, extraordinary, like how I usually have it. There's two parts to this episode. First one is I'm almost done setting everything up for little game that we're going to be playing. So make sure you head over to my patreon account Collick the follow button. The reason why you collick the follow button is because if you have the PATREON APP on your phone, you will get an alert every time I send out a public post, or if you follow, you can actually get in an email alert as well...

...every time when I send a public post. So what the public post is is something when I don't get anybody, I say, if I send a post to the members, you won't get alert, but as soon as it's to public, that's when you guys would get the alert. What the Hell is this guy doing? It very simple, doesn't cost you anything and you still get updated with any times that I do have something to mention and keep you guys in touch. All right. Second at the start of the month, what I did is I got myself computer. Yes, I actually got a computer, like an actual computer computer. No, don't get high hoped about getting good sounding quality shows. Maybe a little bit ed it. That's...

...about it. Anyway. That's not why I wanted to talk to you about this. When I got the computer, I was more or less going to make it streaming for TJ myself faster, better, graphics, etcentric, etc. You know, fair enough. All said and done, had it up, had it going talk to myself. You know, let's see if I can get an xbox emulator. I tried, I seriously did. The worst part about it was I couldn't really find xbox one games there, the original xbox games. So I decided to download the playstation to emulator. So right now, when I come on my computer, I have playstation one emulator with...

...a bunch of games, playstation two with games. I'm not going to say a bunch, but I'm not going to say not a lot, just on them. So some of the Games that I got was like set sled storm to technically sled storm. What else? A NHL K five and NHL or NHL TO K ten him, Simpson's hit and run and a few other games. I'd got the simpsons for the kids because the girlfriend and I were talking and she thought it would be kind of a good game partner. Tell the truth, they love it. I got the hot teams for myself, especially with the K five, with that one being on top of my mount rushmore...

...favorite video games of all time. I did find quite a few things out when I was playing the whole playstation two emulator with k five. What I wanted to do was create my own team, everything like that, get it up, get it going how it was. But the unique intr staing part that I found with the emulator, and it actually goes true to the the original xbox. Not all the things on the playstation two was available like the original xbox. I mean, think of yourself, what it's the exact same basically the exact same system and stuff like that. The answers no. The more I dove into the Games that I played before, the more I realize...

...they were not the same. One thing. Do I regret not getting a playstation two? Yeah, yeah, I do. I actually do regret not getting a PSTWO. Some of the Games on it. Oh, my God, I downloaded crash nitral card. HMM, that's absolutely a beautiful game. Like even the graphics for a Pstwo is unbelievable compared to like, for example, slod store. That oh my God. Oh, I don't even know where to start on that. So that might actually be another episode. Let's go back. I'm starting to get into a tangent, starting to leave myself in a different direction. And the one thing that I did notice when it comes to the whole playstation versus xbox, I one part that I thought was...

...kind of weird is when I was make my team, I wanted to do the Melville Thunder and when terrence night we created her team together, it had a te across the chest represent thunder. You know, I could have picked something massively cheesy like the logo that they had for the thunder, which was clouds, Thunderbolt says thunder. It's like no, I want the tea, I want the originality. Well, it was so weird. I don't know how to explain it. They didn't have nearly as many logos as the original xbox. I don't know if it's because, okay, I'm just going to say playstation to an xbox. except. All right, I don't know if...

...it was. I don't know why that was true. I don't know if I have to go back into the game, go to the skybox and try and locking it. I'm pretty sure that with the tea you didn't have to unlock it on the Xbox, but I might have to do it to actually see if that's what you do. But even if you play Tom Clancy Rango three, it is mindboggling. I remember playing that at my old boss House because he loved first person shooters. So it's like all right, you know, think about it. With the Rainbow six, that was probably one of the top top five at least as well. So I remember being in one of the mansions and you have to go through and kill all the terrorists or...

...whatever on the overwork on the xbox. Yeah, I wasn't going to say original Xbox, but you go in on the Xbox, you go through a hallway. There's a room on the right, so you can go through the room on the right, clear them out and attack the hallway at a different angle. But on the PSTWO, with the actual disc itself, I remember those exact doorways were barricaded off, you couldn't access it. So it's like really, so you're trying to tell me that the xbox had way more things going on? Does that mean that the more memory or more storage on the disc? But the playstation had it just it was so weird that I'm so used to the original xbox that when I came to Pstwo, the things that...

I thought were possible weren't possible, were not there. It was mindboggling the difference between the two. And I want to play some of the other games that I did back in the day on the later to actually compare the two together, to actually see if how close it was or how far apart they why do this? I'll let you know a little bit more. All right. So sledstorm, sledstorm to whatever you want to call them, electronic art drop the ball like mass of hardcore. When it came to sledstorm on the PSTWO, on playstation one, it was fun, it was great, it...

...was enjoyable. But with the PSTWO, what they decided to do was they took the game, they brought it to the second console and they added a little bit of big, extreme awesome. Travis Puss Draana meets fantasy world. It was. I got to the first track and I was massively turned off. One of the reasons why it was so turned off by this sloodstorm is for probably three laps I technically should have wiped out so many more times, but I actually never. The guy never fell off. There was a lot more characters, it had awesome music. The idea is good. I just...

...to me it was a massive, massive failed. The graphics. They look choppy. They didn't seem like maybe long on that series. That's how bad it was. Like when you play it you cringe. Don't get me wrong, it would have been a good game if they took a little bit better time to figure out the physics of I know with the physics of the first one you can fall off at any time, you can get hit, you can do whatever. It's a part of life, it's a part of the game. When you hit a tree in the second one and don't fall off,...

...seriously, I think something is absolutely wrong with it. I even talked to Wyman and it's like, dude, so letstorm too was a massive fail, and he goes why? It's like it just wasn't what I was expecting and I don't think you would like it either. He goes, is it really that bad? It's like, Dude, trust me, it is really that bad. It was. That's like, yeah, I don't rather play Crash Nigral Card O. my God, the graphics on that. Yeah, Damn, so much better. And it's games like that that I wish that I got the pstwo because I know we would have had fun. All Right,...

I thought I do a show today. You know, it's just one of those days. I thought let's treat yourself. All right, if you have any questions, comments? Tangents with toldy at GMAILCOM Biodat, link forward, slash tangents. I lost my domains. I forgot to we knew it. FACEBOOK, instagram, twitter, tangents. told me. I don't use facebook. I don't. Kind of stop using instagram because me, but I'm mostly on twitter a little too much. I really got to cut that down. All right, we're just remember do a search for tangents with toby on Patreon and I think next episode I will send the link in the description. Today, I and from there we will talk to you later. Puts out...

...and just remember life short, right, hot.
