Episode 163: Send Hornys

Just like our country, we’re young, scrappy, and hungry on this week’s core panel episode! First, we give some air time to Rolling Stone’s coverage of co-host Alexandra Lucas’ GDC talk on the blue-skinned space babe trope, then we try to predict Facebook’s next move now that we can no longer pretend that they’re not […]

Episode 127: Fire Arrows

We’re chatting about the weird amount of Microsoft news recently as well as the act of remembering how to play games simply for fun. We also make mention of the new non-profit initiative to preserve and record video game materials and their history. For the Lightning Round we discuss Marvel games bucking MCU canon and […]

Episode 114: Pootatoes

We’ve got a game development focused episode this week. We discuss how player imagination is just important to the game as intentionally designed narrative and mechanics, the connections between Westworld and video games, and what game devs actually do at all of those crazy conferences. Get your fresh pootatoes and we’ll see you on Mars! We’re on Patreon! Be […]

Episode 9: GDC Round Up 2014

Episode 8: Getting Made Fun Of By Alexander Bruce

We had the opportunity to shoot the shit with Alexander Bruce (not to be confused with the Earl of Carrick). Some of you may already know him as the indie dev behind the batshit crazy puzzle game, Antichamber. For those of you that don’t though, he’s a pretty cool dude with some very interesting stuff to […]

Episode 7: Spring Broke!

We just got off break, and we had a more intimate session while some of the crew were at GDC. This week we hash out some mostly non-GDC related stuff like the new South Park game. We debate about Narrative vs Mechanics in games which evolves into a Metal Gear Solid discussion.  Lastly we toss around […]

Episode 6: Pre GDC 2014

In this episode, we do a pre-GDC rundown of possible (and probable) reveals and we reminisce about previous expos. Did you know Shaquille O’Neal is making a successor to Shaq-Fu? You do now. How about Glenn Beck’s Tesla vs Edison movie? This topic hit’s a pretty close to home for us, especially after spending a […]
