Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (6.1.19) - Issue 352: Virginia

Is it fair to judge one walking simulator against another, when they all strive to do such differing things with the medium? Perhaps not. Am I going to in the interest of making numbered lists? Yes, absolutely. Virginia would be fairly low on that list, but as with many of its kin, it is a short eno...

Re: Our next podcast recording (23.9.18) - 338: Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

While I enjoyed the story and gameplay overall, I didn't connect with it to the degree that others have, so I won't go into those aspects. Instead what excites me most about Hellblade is the potential that it shows within this medium, and what we can hopefully see more of going forward. Hellblade fe...

Re: Comic Book Chatter

I've been reading a bunch of non-superhero stuff lately, which I may go into more some other time, but last week I picked up the first two hardcover volumes of Spider-Gwen, and finished the first. I really enjoyed it, it has enough of the familiar beats of Spiderman stories, but feels fresh and exci...

Re: Books completed (2018)

This year has been pretty good for me for reading. I've never been a huge reader, but definitely fell off the past couple years, and this year I've made a point to seek out and read more stuff. I don't remember the exact order that I read these in, but I'll try to keep it somewhat chronological: Kil...

If it is available, I'd take Tacoma

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

I loved Bioshock Infinite, certainly more than what I've played of the other two Bioshocks, but not quite enough to make it into the top 50.

Re: Our next podcast recording (18.3.18) - 311: Actual Sunlight

I played Actual Sunlight on August 14, 2015.

August of 2015 would have been the start of my second and last ye...

Re: BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite (SPOILERS)

Probably too late for this to make the recording time, but I'll toss in my thoughts on the game anyway: I just played the game for the first time about a month ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The combat felt visceral and fast paced for the majority of the time. I think there were maybe two or three t...

Re: Our next podcast recording (12.8.17): Super Mario Kart

Super is up there with DS for my favorite feeling Mario Kart, but only when played well. As soon as any mistakes are made and you end up in the grass or water, you may as well reset the SNES. I'd like to see Nintendo revisit the more arcade-y style of this entry, where skill is more rewarded than lu...

Re: Our next podcast recording (5.8.17): Super Hexagon

I put Super Hexagon right next to Tetris. Maybe just a little below. If Tetris were a wise old wizard that could help you defeat the dragon through patience and careful planning, Super Hexagon is that wizard's hip younger nephew-in-law (who is also a wizard). He'll die to the dragon, taking you all ...

Re: Annoying Gaming Lexicon

I used to call the square button on Playstation controllers 'box'. I've never heard it called that outside my family, so its pretty well beaten out of my vocabulary by now, but occasionally if I'm just playing games with my brother I'll still refer to it as box.

Re: Our next podcast recording (29.7.17): Until Dawn

What sticks out most to me about Until Dawn is the connection between the mechanics and characters. Upon starting the game with my brother and friends, we quickly singled out who we most wanted to save, and who we would probably get killed. While I certainly still had my favorites by the end, I trie...

Re: Life Is Strange - Cane and Rinse 277

This was one of my favorite issues covering one of my favorite games.

I loved this issue because, aside from it being immen...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (8.7.17): Life Is Strange

I played through Life Is Strange at probably the perfect time in my life.

I connected with the characters and the setting almost immediately. I can re...

Re: Papo & Yo - Cane and Rinse 124

I just played through Papo & Yo tonight. I went in knowing almost nothing, other than thinking it was a fairly serious/emotional game, a la Brothers. I'm going to give this issue a listen, and then will probably give some more of my own thoughts on it.

Re: An interview with Mattia Traverso

Really enjoyed this one! The game's history was fascinating, and I'm interested in how games handle accessibility, so it was cool that that got touched on.

If I had an Xbox One I'd certainly be interested in trying it out.
