@Th3solution Thank you. It was as if the quiz was written for me. I've played every game bar Brothers a tale of 2 sons.

What's really weird is when I used to organise the Rocket League tournaments. Stephen (Quintumply) told me about Brothers and advised me to play it one time, I was like sounds great, who are the Brothers (expecting a joke return like The Jonas Brothers for example) and he said Knee and Nay. I obviously burst out laughing and went on about the names for the next ten minutes.

A second point which is equally odd. I'm adament on my version of P4G that Chie was named Chia. I don't know when or why that has happened to my memory of the game.

Third point. Final Fantasy X is not my favourite FF ever invented. I would place 7, 8 and 15 ahead for multiple reasons. But it is my favourite story and conclusion to maybe any game or film. The twist to the game is you are led to believe that it's a tale of Time travel and Tidus due to the initial attack by Sin on Zanarkand and has gone x amount of years into the future. That's not actually the case. If you haven't finished the game please read a synopsis of what happens its such a brilliant concept and idea.

I'll have another go.

Possibly not quite the 'maximum effort' of my last one though 😂

@themcnoisy A well earned victory. We must be of a similar mind on games we’ve played and enjoyed (well, except for Detroit Become Human, apparently. Which I would recommend for sure. The abusive father segment shown in the trailers, although somewhat disturbing, seemed adequately handled in the context of the game and was a fairly brief encounter. It presents the father’s actions and attitude in a very antagonistic and unacceptable light, does not glorify it in any way, and gives you the options to respond accordingly. I’m typically sensitive to such things too and it didnt strikes me as gratuitous or inappropriately used, but I digress...). But yeah, the Brothers parents must have not been thinking clearly to name their sons Naiee and Naia. How would they ever keep them straight?! 😂
As for FFX - it has been a while since I played it and I remember the gameplay quite a bit. I spent way too much time playing blitzball, so I must have glazed over the actual plot twists. I sometimes have a hard time following storylines of JRPGs due to the wandering nature of the plot sometimes.

@KALofKRYPTON Awesome! I look forward to it. I will be traveling a little this upcoming weekend, but I will definitely drop in for the quiz!

@Th3solution Liza v Godzilla is a thrill ride for sure. Almost as good as Celine v Mothra. Play them!

@themcnoisy Final Fantasy X has such a great story. The bit where they find out their pilgrimage and the entire foundation of society is a lie is excellent.

Right then, quiz time.
This week's quiz is open until midday Tuesday (19/03/19) to give everyone a chance to have a go.
Tried to make this one a little more guesswork friendly, though it probably will be a little easier on those of you of a certain vintage, or those with some pretty arcane knowledge! 😂

ZX Spectrum (1 point)

NES (1 point)

Hannah Montana: Rock Out The Show (PSP)

Q3.

Q4.

Bonus points (1 per game, 9 games in total) if you can name the home and corresponding handled games that used the feature.

Q3.
While the powerhouse XBOX featured releases for both OutRun 2 and OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast, both of which ran like butter - the ever so slightly inferior PlayStation 2 release of OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast boasted 1 unique feature that the XBOX simply couldn’t provide. What was it?

@Th3solution thanks for your entry!

I can't take total credit. A lot of it was off the of my head, but I had to confirm a few things along the way and the bonus point games for the fourth question in the handheld round was just something I stumbled upon while verifying.

I'm sure I'll need Google if anyone else does the quiz to verify a few answers anyway 😀
