Fallout 4 Podcast: “Special” With Dots Between the Letters

By Heath | January 14, 2016 at 9:51 am

If you want an MP3 download to take the podcast on the road, here you go.

We dive headfirst into one of the best RPGs of 2015, Fallout 4. Impressions here are based on about 35 hours of play at the time of recording, and we’ll be revisiting this one again in the near future. Contents:

00:00 – Intro and graphics
04:05 – Fallout 4’s art direction or “Why are the 50’s terrifying?”
10:23 – The mark of a good open-world game
13:16 – Thoughts on the story (so far), spoiler free
14:58 – Interface and settlements
16:40 – Tales of power armor, turrets, swords, and raiders
18:44 – Depth, Combat, cameras, and hitting the bottom
29:18 – Back to that interface…
33:57 – Quality vs. Quantity
35:50 – RPGs and “you are the story”
38:00 – Survival horror wishes it could do this
42:25 – Why I murdered Wolverine
47:11 – What up, Dog?
49:11 – The Music

Next week, Nell will rejoin the show and we’ll kick 2016 off with some Fallout 4 or Final Fantasy VII Remake podcasts. Both are coming, not sure in what order they’ll be on the site here. Fallout kinda seems more the “in” thing right now, so probably that. The FF7 episode is already available for Patreon supporters though!

Thanks for helping us get off the ground with this new podcast in 2015. We hope next year is even better. Cheers!

7 Stupid Mistakes the Game Industry Still Made in 2015 – Best Video Game Podcast

By Heath | December 30, 2015 at 1:35 am

If you’d like an MP3 download, we can provide that. Download and listen wherever. Enjoy.

We technically missed Dec. 23, the actual day of Festivus, but, well, here we are. Contents:

00:00 – A Festivus Miracle!
01:20 – The Airing of Grievances. Consoles becoming computers: good and bad.
05:00 – It seems like every time I want to show people my PS4, shit goes wrong.
07:57 – Don’t make me fight someone for the chance to give you money. Seriously, WTF.
13:13 – How the fuck is region locking still a thing?
16:19 – Mixed, contradictory messages from PR people.
18:37 – The biggest grievance isn’t lack of B/C, it’s the mixed message.
24:18 – Stop judging other people based on video game preferences, you jackass.
26:20 – Konami.
35:20 – One last grievance….

The next episode will feature Editor in Chief Nick Tan talking about his trip to Tokyo for Jump Festa and a Bandai Namco event. The Final Fantasy VII Remake episode will kick off 2016 (but went live Christmas Day for Patreon supporters).

If YouTube isn’t your preferred stream, then Maybe MixCloud is more your speed?

Man, Fuck Episodic FF7 Bullshit. On the up side, Ni no Kuni 2! (Podcast)

By Heath | December 13, 2015 at 1:30 pm

Here’s the MP3 download for anyone wanting to go the traditional route.

Final Fantasy VII and Ni no Kuni are pretty big fucking deals to both of us. In the future, we’re confirmed to be getting more of both. This obviously has our attention, especially with the revelation that the FFVII Remake is going to be… multiple… parts?

00:30 – Coming soon: a full (useless) FF7 Remake Wish List Episode
02:55 – FF7 Remake won’t be complete when it first launches
04:47 – Why SE didn’t reveal this info earlier
05:51 – Bullshit justifications
15:54 – What we never imagined
17:39 – The worst part of all this
20:32 – Yakuza 0! In English soon!
21:51 – Ni no Kuni 2
23:45 – Evidence of changing status quo
31:10 – A surprisingly lond look at a very minor observation
36:40 – The setting is almost a character itself

If you want to stream, but not with YouTube, we also do the MixCloud thing:
