This episode cuts the fat and serves up all the meat. We talk 100% games we’ve been playing this week. Not even any news stories make it in to the discussion. Speaking of those games, remember our roulette from two weeks ago? Uncharted: The Lost Legacy? That’s right, we all finished it in time so we get to do our deep dive and break it down to its nuts and bolts. And best of all, it’s a spoiler-free chat baked right into the main episode. No “stick around until after” business. It’s all there for everyone. So no excuses!
But that’s not all we played! Elliot polished off his Super Mario Run campaign. It’s a pretty short game, but it sparks a pretty big discussion about mobile games, how valid they are in this medium, and what “infinite runner” means. You’ll learn a lot. Stevo has started playing Gaming’s latest sweetheart, Celeste, and he’s got a lot of glowing things to say about it. And Josh has started to die repeatedly on Dark Souls 3, so help him out when he’s streaming on twitch.tv/ratherbeplaying and give him some tips.
We’ve also got a short talk on streaming games! There’s many ways to do it, and many people to tell you how they’re all wrong. But we think there’s no wrong way to do it, and we’re going to be shaking up our formula going forward. The good news is this should mean more streaming! So keep checking for us on that Twitch channel!
And lastly, it’s time for a new Backlog Roulette! We choose a new game to take Uncharted’s place, and then roll for a new game to play! We’ll be playing this one over the next episode and then talking about it on the one after! Don’t be shy and join the discussion! Leave a comment or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll talk about it on the next episode. See you in two weeks!
