Episode 32: Let's Do Nothing!

All this talking about storytelling and narratives has gotten exhausting, and who has the energy for that in this summer heat? Instead, let’s take it easy, and not talk about story at all. In fact, let’s talk about some games with a very pointed lack of story, and see if we can riddle out how those work! Doesn’t that sound refreshing? Also included: TIME TO KILL, Funky Kong ASMR, Slimy Wilson, and Football-Sonas.

Episode 22: Movie Games BAD!!! (Baby's First Clickbait)

We got you! You clicked! Our clever ruse is a success! This week, we talk for a while about why it’s so rare to see a licensed game for a film property turn out to be actually fun, but then transition into talking about a lot of licensed movie games we actually really liked. It’s a roller coaster! Oh, plus, at one point we talk for a long time about a game cutscene that you can watch HERE. Also included: Tax Prison Podcasting, The Nightmare Before May Cry, an Ear Crime, and the Bumble Good-Bye.

Episode 21: What's All This, Then!?

This week, we get wet and wild, by which I mean we were recording before either of us had fully absorbed our morning coffees. With that weird energy at our disposal, we talk about how stories change when the audience is forced to take on a different point-of-view, and how games create opportunities for this by swapping around main characters and making perspective switches. Also included: Horny for Osmosis, Nolan Nurth, Chris the Segue Boy, and an Actual Spoiler Warning

Episode 19.5: Live from Beat Kitchen in Chicago, IL

No pre-recorded episode this week, due to travel and work, but enjoy a quick treat! Our first ever live show, recorded at the Chicago Podcasters Unite C2E2 show on March 16th, 2019! The crowd was great, and we take our slot to talk how games sell immersion. Also included: Chris Forgets his Shakespeare, ThE tHeAtRe Of ThE eYe, and Sega Stole My Wallet!
