We’ve taken a few weeks off since our epic E3 2010 podcast so that Nick and I could finish slaying the titan known as Web Zeroes. But now we’re back, despite the current drought of gaming related news, and we still manage to talk for a ludicrously long time.
That’s partly because in this episode, we go off on a wild series of awesome nerdy tangents, which includes a great discussion on old school Saturday morning cartoons and how they are full of both nostalgia and win. Also, why mono is God’s gift to gamers.
Anyway, give it a listen, rate it on iTunes if you want, and feel free to continue the conversation we had here down in the comments. Enjoy!
Here are this week’s topics:
What Are You Playing?
Bayonetta, video game rentals and the perfect gaming difficulty
Transformers and Saturday morning cartoons
Sacred 2 and Diablo-style games
Bad Company 2
Red Dead Redemption and falling action in video games
Co-Op against Versus?
Our biggest gaming binge?
Roget Ebert and the Games as Art debate
All of that doesn’t even come close to representing everything discussed here, so hopefully there are lots of great moments for you to listen to. I really love the back and forth we’re starting to establish, particularly as we talk about the Games as Art issue.
