Here is an hour of four people talking about videogames. I don’t know why you like this sort of thing, but it’s not my place to judge.
01:00 E3 Wrap-up.
We say we don’t have anything left to say about E3, but then we talk about it for ten minutes. And since we brought up both Anthony Burch and panels, that gives me an excuse to link to Dying is Funny, Comedy is Easy, a presentation by Burch on why more games should embrace comedy.
10:00 Watch_Dogs is a tone-deaf narrative with hackneyed characters.
Chis and I talk about the game at length. Spoiler: It’s not our Game of the Year.
19:00 Let’s talk about something else.
Like the terrible Watch_Dogs gameplay.
38:00 Somewhere along the line we lose the plot and talk about Ubisoft and Elder Scrolls.
We didn’t even plan to discuss Elder Scrolls this week. It just happened.
50:00 Steam Summer Sale!
Actually, while we were going to talk about the sale for this segment, we just wound up talking about what we’re playing. Go figure.
I’m playing Risk of Rain. Also Revenge of the Titans from Puppygames. In this segment I said I had all the titles from Puppygames. Not so! They now have Droid Assault, which is part of the Steam sale at the moment. So NOW I have all the Puppygames.
Mass Effect Retrospective
A novel-sized analysis of the Mass Effect series that explains where it all went wrong. Spoiler: It was long before the ending.
Denuvo and the "Death" of Piracy
Denuvo videogame DRM didn't actually kill piracy, but it did stop it for several months. Here's what we learned from that.
Steam Summer Blues
This mess of dross, confusion, and terrible UI design is the storefront the big publishers couldn't beat? Amazing.
A Lack of Vision and Leadership
People fault EA for being greedy, but their real sin is just how terrible they are at it.
The Mistakes DOOM Didn't Make
How did this game avoid all the usual stupidity that ruins remakes of classic titles?
