Yesterday I finally got the chance to start playing Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. This game is phenomenal and hilarious, though half the '90s NBA jokes go straight over my head. But the best thing about it is that it's not just a half-assed joke. This is a legit SNES-era J-RPG-style game with a unique and fully thought out combat system (where among other things the status effects are not "poison" or "paralysis," but "glaucoma" and "diabetes"), puzzles, minigames, and secrets all over the place, and a complex, melodramatic, apocalyptic story played completely straight where the proper nouns and terminology just happen to all be references to "b-ball" and Space Jam.
It's available on Tales of Games's website for free, PC or Mac, so you should definitely check it out. Apparently the developers successfully ran a Kickstarter campaign to produce a sequel. I can't wait.
