A fair warning: Antuan gets on a pretty serious 20 minute rant about his Destiny addiction and the shortcomings of the current generation of gaming, but there are plenty of NerdyCool things discussed this week to balance out the NerdyComplaints. The guys start out with the new Disney/Marvel collaboration, Big Hero 6, before rolling into what games they’ve…
The sci-fi psuedo-MMORPG shooter, Destiny, has the world scratching its collective head and has the nerds thinking that, for better or worse, this isn’t the game we thought we were buying into. Have a listen and find out what we mean.
Fighting is simple science for we Warlocks. It may look like magic, but it’s actually just physics, simple mathematics, and tactics. Even so, I’m felling pretty pumped from all of the energy I’ve drained from the grunts — feeling like a goddamn Voidwalking Space Wizard — but I’m also quickly getting overwhelmed. Looks like it’s “exo’s gotta do what an exo’s gotta do” time again.
The double entendres fly this week as the boys sit down to chat about fart jokes, RPGs, and South Park: the Stick of Truth. After a few laughs, they dig into complex themes of Valiant Hearts: The Great War and the joys of mindless button-mashing in Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition. Intro for this week’s episode comes from RoccoW via…
Valiant Hearts is a brilliant side-scrolling puzzle game set in World War I. Players take control of soldiers, a medic and even a rescue dog to help fight for their countries.
We question the nature of open world gaming, ask how much in-game distraction is too much, and in the middle of talking about how Watch_Dogs tackles themes of online privacy, one of us learns a valuable lesson about oversharing on Xbox Live.
On this week’s episode, the guys chat about Broforce (Steam), Super Time Force (Xbox One), and Mercenary Kings (Steam/PS4) — three very different takes on the retro action platformer.
Watch_Dogs’ Aiden Pearce is possibly the first truly 21st century hero. What makes him interesting is that he champions the attributes that we (and I hate to describe myself this way) millenials think are cool. He’s tech savvy; he’s nimble rather than strong; and most interestingly, he’s an expert multitasker.
I don’t mind a tough game now and then. I’ve played action games on Hard and sworn at the screen after some mob of “goddamn fuckers fucked me again, FUCK.” I’ve tried to win difficult races and wailed like a heartbroken tween at missing the mark by just a few milliseconds. I still go back now and…
This week, Antuan, Brian, and Clay sit down to discuss JRPGs, Western RPGs, and the newly released ‘Child of Light.’ The recently reviewed Pixel Dungeon finds its way into the discussion and Clayton shares his love for a highly stylized, swashbuckling Steam game.
