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.

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (15.4.17) - Diablo III / Reaper of Souls

I got Diabo III for my birthday of 2014 on the PS4, and it was probably among the first 5 retail games I owned for the system. This was my first entry in the series, though I have played a few other loot heavy games, such as Borderlands and Dungeon Defenders. My main interest in asking for the game ...

Re: Gone Home - Cane and Rinse 263

Excellent show! As Sean and Josh (and maybe Jon?) said in their wrap-ups, its nice to have a purely human story in a game, not surrounded by fantastical elements, and I hope we keep seeing more like it in the future. For something in a similar non-fantasy vein, people should check out The Beginner's...

Re: Book Recommendations

Yeah, I've heard of John Dies At the End, it's written by one of the Cracked regulars isn't it? Yep! David Wong, their executive editor. I'm not sure if we're also allowed to recommend graphic novels here, but I recently read Lost At Sea by Bryan Lee O'Malley (the Scott Pilgrim creator), and I thou...

Re: Gone Home

Using all my graphic design education thus far, I made some info-graphics that sort of go with my post above, giving my thoughts on the structure of various walking simulators. I don't think any actually spoil anything (except maybe in the last one), but I've put them in spoiler thingys just in case...

Re: Gone Home

I had a similar experience to Luke in that I had heard a lot of praise for Gone Home, but didn't really know what it was about, and had either gotten it in a steam sale or bundle, where it sat for a while before finally playing. Gone Home is an excellent example of storytelling in video games. Thoug...

Re: Book Recommendations

Alex, you should look into John Dies at the End. Pretty quick comedy/horror book. I prefer the 2nd book, and they stand alone, so you wouldn't have to read the first, but it's still excellent.

Re: Sound of Play: 81

That opening track made me want to hug somebody. Unfortunately I was alone at home making a microwave burrito at 1 in the morning. I'll definitely be picking up the Planet Coaster soundtrack when I have the available funds. I don't think I have the same feel-good associations to many of the older tu...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

I'd like to gently place the Devolver-published visual novel Hatoful Boyfriend in the list, preferably next to a nice Traveller's Tales game, or a generic gritty crime drama with a cult following. In addition to this, I'll carelessly toss the holiday themed sequel to the aforementioned bird-dating s...

Haven't been keeping up too much with all the announcements, but Odyssey looks really cool; I'm happy seeing some new ideas there, especially since the city bits were giving me Sonic Adventure 2 vibes. An expanded Mario Kart 8 is welcome and will keep me busy for a while seeing as how I still haven'...

Re: Our next podcast recording (7.1.17): Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

A few days ago I started up Everybody's Gone to the Rapture to do a 2nd play-through to refresh before the podcast. I got about five minutes in and had to stop. Why? I'm not quite sure yet. The game is virtually nothing but story. A brilliantly told story, with rich characters whom all feel like rea...

Re: Star Wars

Rogue One may be my favorite Star Wars film. I just saw it, so it's a bit early to make any official declaration, but it's very close to Jedi for me, if not above it. I play a couple different Star Wars tabletop RPGs with my friends and brother, and the movie felt exactly like something we would do ...

Arts & Crafts

Thought I'd make a topic for people to share any craft type things they have made. I recently made a Mario ABC Book for class this semester.

I'll post some other things I've done when I get around to photographing and uploading them, but I'd love to see what others in the community have done!

Re: Sound of Play: 70

This was a fun special, I was hoping for the P4G intro song but fortunately have it on my iPod, so I listened to it right after the episode. Even though I only played through about half of P4G, I definitely felt nostalgic listening to a lot of the music from it. I just wish I could get past all the ...

Re: The Bittersweet Reality of Your Gaming Preferences

As for my own preferences: I sort of wish I could get into more RPGs, both action and Japanese. My problem with JRPGs is, as was debated earlier in this topic, the turned based combat. I really enjoy Paper Mario 1&2 because it adds in mini games to the combat that keep me involved in everything. I r...

Re: The Bittersweet Reality of Your Gaming Preferences

There needs to be more Action RPGs either in the form of Diablo or Borderlands. I only briefly played them, but Torchlight 1 & 2 were pretty good Diablo-likes, if you have a PC for them. There weren't too many stats to deal with, though it could get more complex later on. Similarly, Dungeon Defende...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

I'd like to toss Big Brain Academy for the DS onto the list, if it isn't already there. A fantastic little edutainment game that'd I love to hear analyzed some day. I know there is a Wii game as well, but I never played it and don't know how well it holds up or anything.
