Beat the summer heat with some cool, red-hot game music, or something! We share our favorite Sega hits, favorite tropical Animal Crossing jams, and favorite… Antonio Vivaldi?
Tag: Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Join us as we answer 2017’s most burning questions: What is it like owning a dragon-cat-dog-bird-thing? How not-terrible is Watch Dogs 2? Is Paul stuck in an Animal Crossing time loop? What’s your social security number? Also, D.J. attends a stage play.
Have some semi-coherent rambling after staying up too late playing video games. And then… our Extra Life live show, ha ha!!
It’s tougher than ever to fit lengthy gaming experiences into our crowded schedules. We discuss what we do when faced with the 60-odd-hour JRPG, whether it’s the developers that should be more considerate, and what’s truly important for us to get out of our precious gaming time.
In the Hangover, Randy selflessly throws himself on top of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, D.J. saves the world many times in Half Minute Hero, and Paul… well, Paul’s still doing his Animal Crossing thing.
Also, we reveal the most shameful games in your backlogs in Viewer Mail!
Special thanks to listener DontJudgeMyADD for suggesting this week’s topic by way of his article, “Gamers need more choices to scale game experiences.”
We’re playing The Last of Us (still spoiler-free!) and wondering if sometimes games try too hard to be… game-y? We discuss finding a proper mix of gameplay and narrative as games become more cinematic. Also, Randy spends his summer vacation memory hacking and punching dudes in Remember Me‘s Neo Paris.
We’ve also got your comments on retro games, Illumiroom, and more Animal Crossing!
Are you a closet gamer? (It’s OK, you’re among friends.) In a special combo topic from listener Robop1g, we’re picking apart the concept of “gamer shame” and seeing how far we have to turn the clock back before games become unplayable. And—as long as we’re coming out of the closet—we go on a bit of a tangent and confess our biggest movie shames.
In the Hangover, we’re playing Mighty Switch Force! 2 on 3DS and experiencing different types of zombie survival in State of Decay and The Last of Us. (Don’t worry, no spoilers!) We’ve also got your reactions to Microsoft’s surprise Xbox 180!
We took a break from playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf long enough to record a show! We spend this week trying to pin down what makes Nintendo’s offbeat life simulator so popular, sharing stories from our Animal Crossing history, and discussing where the series could go in the future.
Also, we have your post-E3 reactions to Xbox One vs. PlayStation 4!
