Thanks so much to special guest George Weidman of SuperBunnyHop for joining in. He’s also going to be part of Spoiler Warning this week. If you’re going to check out his channel (which you should totally do) I highly recommend his video on Quiet Time in games, and if you’re obsessed with VR like I am then you’ll want to see his fairly thorough VR report from GDC.
1:00 Chris is playing Trials Fusion.
7:00 Chris is also playing Infamous: Second Son.
12:00 Talking about morality systems, and George brings up the Witcher.
19:30 Let’s Talk about HOT MEN.
What follows is nearly fifteen minutes where four straight men and a straight woman try to figure out which dudes are hot. Spoiler: The Straight Men aren’t very good at this.
32:00 Who is Dennis Hopper?
We often feign outrage for comedic effect, but I was actually stunned silent when the guys described DENNIS HOPPER as “the guy who played King Koopa”. Someday someone fifteen years younger than you will describe Liam Neeson as “the guy from Nut Job” and you will know my pain.
38:00 Mumbles is reading comics.
As Mumbles explained, digital comics are a thing. At Marvel Unlimited you can pay $10 a month and read all the comics. New ones, old ones, everything. I’m seriously thinking about getting this for a month. Anyone use this service? I’d love to hear more about it.
46:00 Rutskarn shows up, and then Shamus and Mumbles talk about Wildstar.
Thanks again to George for joining in.
