This week there won’t be any Spoiler Warning. But! You get a longer-than-usual Diecast, and if we’re all really good maybe Josh will upload last week’s hangout to YouTube.
This month is likely to be spotty, in terms of podcasts and videos. It’s hard enough to get all five of us together at the same time on a normal week, and now it’s the silly season. Everyone has a party to go to. Or get ready for. Or recover from. So I don’t know what we’ll be getting, content-wise.
00:01:00 Star Wars Battlefront
00:20:40 Far Cry Primal
Having watched the trailer, I gotta say this looks a lot more interesting to me than anything previously appearing under the Far Cry label. My only misgiving is that it’s an Ubisoft game, which means tedious repetition. And also Uplay. Ew.
00:33:33 Psychonauts 2 and fig
Huh. The re-release of Psychonauts sold double the copies of the original run? Where are the idiots who couldn’t be bothered to give permission to re-release No One Lives Forever? They need to see this. Jerks.
00::54:12 MAILTIME – Screen resolution.
How important is screen resolution for games, in terms of how things look versus the performance costs? Are we going to hit a point where resolutions stop increasing, or it’s not worth designing games to work well with higher resolutions any time soon?
01:04:46 Spooky Games
Today I was talking to Horror Games and her cousin Spooky Games at lunch ingestion period, and she mentioned that some of you people are good at dealing with being around them. Personally I can’t be around Horror or even Spooky for more than a short while before my nerves give out. I really like them, and want to freak out less when we spend time together. What’s the secret(s)?
