The plan this week was to talk about the canceled Blizzard MMO and a few other current topics. Instead we talked about a sixteen-year-old hack-n-slash. I don’t know. That’s how this show goes sometimes.
And yes, I’m still fiddling with the theme music. Based on the feedback last week, most people would prefer if I just went back to the original theme that we used for 70 episodes. I might. But allow me this little vanity for now. It’s short and I’m having fun with it.
2:00 Shamus is playing Diablo 2.
Here is the video I mentioned: Ideas about a new programming language for games.
19:00 Josh is playing Final Fantasy 13.
Warning: I’m pretty sure Josh spoils the plot of the game in this segment. I can’t tell for sure because I had slammed my hands over my ears, groaning uncontrollably after the first hour of his description.
35:00 Jarenth is playing Concursion and Crypt of the NecroDancer.
But somehow we end up talking about leaderboad games. This is the game I was talking about. I like it a bunch. Just remember: Don’t tell Chris.
45:00 Rutskarn is playing Payday 2 and Far Cry 2.
But instead of talking about those he tells us some tabletop gaming stories, which are a lot more interesting.
