Here is an hour and a half of five people talking about videogames. We got together and realized that one of the big problems in the world is that people don’t spend enough time talking about videogames. So we went beyond the call of duty and gave you an extra half an hour.
02:00 What’s the Happy-haps?
Josh is playing Papers, Please. And as a reminder, later today he’ll be playing Rome II, Complete and Absolute War.
Mumbles left Guild Wars 2 for the Old Republic. She’s also playing Quest for Epic Loot, but it’s in closed beta and she can’t talk about it.
Shamus has been playing Papers, Please and Saints Row IV. During this segment Chris mentioned I get this call Every Day.
Rutskarn is playing Gone Home.
00:37:00 A talk about game duration vs. the pricetag of the game.
Shamus tells a long rambling story about how game prices relate to the airplane ride he took as a kid.
41:00 Rustkarn talks about Crusader Kings II
45:00 Sim City Online has troubled launch on Macs.
It really is amazing how this game can continue to find new ways to fail.
51:00 Mumbles talks about Dragon Age 3.
1:00:00 Somewhere around this point we segue into talking about focus testing and the way it (should) shape games.
We compare the changes made to Overstrike to the changes made in Portal 2.
