And here is the last Diecast of 2014.
1:30 Chris is Playing Tales from The Borderlands
We also speculate about the upcoming Minecraft game from Telltale.
10:00 Josh is watching Cowboy Bebop.
14:00 Jacob has been playing Risk of Rain.
20:00 Shamus got a new mouse.
Here is the mouse in question:
And this is the always-on-top download window.
29:00 Lizard Squad stole Christmas.
Spoiler: This is the subject of my column tomorrow, so I don’t want to add too much now.
40:00 Josh will be doing a New Year’s Eve stream.
I’ll have a post and links up when the time comes.
Dear diecast/spoiler warning crew,
Have you ever considered doing riff tracks of movies or tv shows?
And here is the full question that we trimmed down:
Hi, I’m Daniel (JackTheStripper on your website) and I wanted to ask the Diecast what they think of the current state of educational games.
I grew up playing games like Math Blaster Episode I: In Search of Spot, Math Blaster Mystery: The Great Brain Robbery, Where in The World (and Where in the USA) is Carmen San Diego, and even more classic games like Number Munchers. The fact that they were educational games never bothered me, and the challenge was there. I don’t think I ever beat any of those games on the harder difficulties.
Anyway, games like those are practically non-existent today, and with lots of indie devs bringing games of their childhood back, how is nobody trying to bring back educational games?
Hopefully there’ll be a Diecast in the coming days but I’ll understand if there isn’t with the holidays and all. Big fan of you guys though.
Always ludonarratively dissonant,
