40: Environmental Storytelling

December 2, 2017
00:0000:00

In this episode, Paul, Jimmy and Glen try to come up with their own definition of Environmental Storytelling. They prattle on about hypothetical game situations and also talk about environmental storytelling in specific games. Glen and Paul agree to disagree about the exact same thing. Jimmy uses an environmental storytelling technique to add depth to his Dungeons and Dragons campaign. They circle around a sort of definition of what environmental storytelling is and end up with a pretty solid understanding of it (we think). They also debate on how difficult it must be to create environmental storytelling in a 2D game as well as praise current and past developers for putting that challenge on themselves. Secret story unlocked!

39: Micro-transcations

November 18, 2017
00:0000:00

In this episode, Paul and Jimmy talk about micro-transactions; both within the current events unfolding around Star Wars Battlefront II, and about some other games that also have micro-transcations. No Glen this week, to quote him, "My mind is mush," so we can't have any mush minds on this podcast! Paul brings Jimmy up to speed about the seething hatred of Reddit versus EA/DICE's newest Star Wars game. Jimmy recalls a certain gametype in Halo 5 that possibly has a pay-to-win model implemented. They discuss the differences between pay-to-win microtranscations and the simpler aesthetic and quality-of-life microtransactions. The topic of microtranscations and post-release downloadable content is very broad and they end up branching off into different styles of games such as mobile games and Free to Play games such as Path of Exile, Dota 2, and League of Legends. Paul talks about Overwatch loot crates. Paul and Jimmy both yearn for times when games were complete at launch. Ultimately, the best case scenario is that the consumers get what they want without having to pay thousands of dollars or playing for hundreds of thousands of hours. Oh boy jumping puzzles!

October 28, 2017

In this episode, Paul, Jimmy and Glen revisit a horror game that still holds it's own. SPOILERS AHOY (If you've never played Amnesia, give it a go. It's a great game)! They discuss many aspects about the game from simple mechanics to overarching thematical elements. Paul is unphased by scary games and his gamer-instincts kick in to "beat the game." Glen gets fucked up from 5 minutes of Amnesia. Jimmy has to dig up old memories of playing Amnesia the first time. They end up a little off-topic at the end: talking about all things from clowns to Phoenix Wright. Happy Halloween!
