Our 50th episode! How freakin’ crazy is that?
Can a game be good without a strong narrative? Inspired by the effusive reviews that The Witcher 2 has been receiving, we’re dedicating this week’s discussion to the importance of story in video games.
In the Hangover, we’ve been playing Fez, Bit.Trip Saga, Driver: San Francisco, and more.
We wrap up the show with Last Call and talk of Record Store Day, the day before Record Store Day, and advice for indie game developers on how to graciously accept praise for their creations.
