An evergreen topic approaches! And yet, it's also topical for the time.

 

Today we are talking about satisfying climaxes, and what makes them so!

Jul 2, 2020

Nobody likes it, we all have to face it. Just gotta get over it.

Does criticism have value? And if so, what? How do you address it? The last week has forced everyone in gaming to look one of the ugliest aspects of the industry right in it's eyes.

Jun 25, 2020

It's been an eclectic week - NGPX news, along with the announcement for a moba no one expected, and we discuss some thoughts on Last of Us 2.

Jun 18, 2020

We begin with a quarantine update on how we are surviving, or not. I might be losing my mind. But we jump into the real topic soon: Sony's ghosting its babygirl VR, right? No word about it, not real example of it surviving into next gen - that sh*@ is DED.

Jun 12, 2020

Sony for once has a pretty awesome presentation - we get to look at games, games, and more games! No hard release date, and no price point for the new console is a bit of a let down. But I am sure that once July roles around, we'll get both.

Jun 4, 2020

We start today's podcast with a brief statement of support for the protests currently sweeping the US and many other nations. We understand that for our listeners this podcast is an escape, however brief, from their daily lives. So, the rest of the episode is a normal episode all about choosing a director, and their filmography, to pick characters to populate a fighting game. Naturally there are tangents all about film, and culture. 

 

Enjoy! Be safe, be kind, walk tall and shine on!

May 28, 2020

Today's episode is a lighter discussion about game ideas we want to see so bad, we'd give the whole damn thing away. Maybe you have an idea for a game, and it's a good one, so you're holding it close in case you ever get to make it... But then you have that idea you want to see so bad you'd give it to anyone who'd make it! 

 

Here's a couple free ideas devs!

May 21, 2020

AI is being used more and more in games. More than I even knew. Games like Dark Souls use it for their bosses, so they learn the most common mistakes we make, and then they take advantage of it. It keeps the difficulty high, no matter how many times we play it. It's sort of genius. But what about for social games? What would it be like to haggle with Tom Nook if Tom figured out you're a shady dick, or a naive bumpkin? Would it be too real if that Fire Emblem Waifu turned out to be fickle, or vacuous and you've wasted your time because she got bored (that b***h, you're amazing!). That's what we talk about today!

May 14, 2020

What you see, isn't always what you get on a tech demo.

Today we talk the good, the bad, and the possibly meaningless of Unreal 5 tech demo.

May 8, 2020

Okay.

 

So it wasn't very game play oriented, but there were a few gems that pleasantly surprised us.

 

And we have a wholesome new way to gauge our interest in games.

Apr 30, 2020

Naughty Dog got raw dogged by a disgruntled employee.

 

While we don't talk specifics of the leaks themselves, we do get into the circumstances, and the different types of leaks - like controlled, uncontrolled, and market test leaks. Sometimes companies do this on purpose.

Apr 23, 2020

How to define a perfect game? Well, to steal from James Gunn (and modify slightly): A game that sings from start to finish with no obvious mistakes or flaws to their structure or gameplay.

 

What games fit that description? You might be surprised, but some games we don't even like are on there.

Apr 23, 2020

*SPOILERS*

 

Listen at your own risk - Matt and Max have an in depth, spoilery as hell conversation about FF7R.

 

Shine on!

Apr 16, 2020

Rumors big and small. We're stuck indoors and everyone is losing their sh*t - so naturally there's all sorts of rumors coming out.

Apr 9, 2020
RE3R is out, and with its release there's been a veritable flood of leaks about RE8, the freaky monsters we may see, and of course squeaks on the problems of RE3 R.
 
It's a longer one today. We hope you're all keeping safe during this weird as hell time. Shine on!
Apr 2, 2020

What is the sweet spot for game length? Does it differ by genre? Is there a sweet spot at all?

 

News about RE3R's playtime has some fans deciding to abandon ship. So, we get into it over game length pros and cons.

 
Mar 26, 2020

Remember back in the day when Box Art, and maybe the copy on the back was all there was to sell you on a game? Remember all those wonderful covers, and hype as hell descriptions of the game/story?

 

Remember how sometimes they'd turn out to be utterly full of crap? We remember.

 

Let's talk old school bamboozlin'!

Mar 19, 2020

Confirmed spec lists for both systems paint a picture of what we can expect this holiday season.

Mar 13, 2020

Today we went extra long to make up for the late upload.

 

We talk E3 cancellation, Corona Virus, and an update to our Resident Evil Main Line game rankings.

 

If you're self quarantined or stuck inside due to weather, let us keep you company!

Mar 5, 2020
Sometimes the first time you try something, it sucks. Like brussels sprouts or commitment. But then you go back to it, and it's actually pretty great.
 
Today we're talking all about that. Games we didn't like the first time we played them, and for what ever reason, tried again only to find we love them.
Feb 28, 2020

Corona Virus has possibly killed GDC - what events are next?

Feb 20, 2020

A tiny spark of controversy regarding a net code patch in SF5 pushes us into a conversation about cap com in general. Also: Next gen could cost (starting at) $500. We get into what would make us pony up the cash.

Feb 13, 2020

Today we talk about: How the health and fitness industry is targeting gamers. It's only going to get more prevalent but how the hell did it get this way?

Feb 6, 2020

Evo announced this year's line up and there's a few shocking choices.

Jan 23, 2020

It's a twofer! We talk about quality of life in gaming, and then get into how Disney Games could make a return.

 

Plus: I rile Matt up about LotR :P

 

Shine on!
