It’s all about The International 5 this week! Well, not all, but Kody and Taryn sure have a lot to say about Valve’s annual tournament and James and Kody have a lot to say about the new Fallout Shelter Android release. The topic this week focuses on a video game company that is searching for FDA approval to prescribe their game to sufferers of ADHD.
This week’s podcast features the first one with a fully integrated Interview, this one with a local game store manager. Besides that is the normal watcha been playing and news where we talk about MLB The Show 2015 and the death of Satoru Iwata. Finally after the break we talk for a bit about what the ideal length for a game is.
There’s been a bit of a break in between podcasts for personal reasons but that just gave the gang time to play some VIDEO GAMES! Like Taryn and Kody playing a lot of Splatoon (Kody bought a WiiU) and James playing Darkest Dungeon. Taryn also played some Ori and the Blind Forest. The news is laser focused on E3 because there was a lot to talk about! Unless… you’re a Nintendo Fan.
This ones a bit of a shorty because we all played the same stuff except Taryn who rocked out to Hyperdimension Neptunia. Her opinion will SHOCK YOU! (she likes it, there I saved you a click). Kody continued to play Pillars of Eternity and James continued to play Bloodborne. The news is where it’s AT though because there was a new Deus Ex announced, a LEGO toys to life game, and THE BUTTON!!!!
It’s another podcast! This week Taryn talks about how the honeymoon period with Hyrule Warriors is super short but Child of Light is still good. James died a lot in Bloodborne. And Kody played more Pillars of Eternity and talks about Final Fantasy: Record Keeper. The news filled with more Nintendo talk but there’s also talk of the new Expansion for Hearthstone and a quick diversion on how good World of Warcraft used to be.
It’s a big week for news but that didn’t stop the quirky gang from playing Video Games! Kody played Dark Cloud 2 and Cities Skylines, Taryn played The Walking Dead Season 1 and World of Warcraft, and James played Infinite Crisis and Dark Souls. You came for the news though and boy howdy did they talk about it in very stern terms starting with Kojima leaving Konami, Nintendo going mobile, and Iwata ruining Taryn’s dreams of a Zelda TV show.
We’re back and we have the same special guest as last week which kind of makes it not so special but whatever. Taryn is here and she talks about Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Brother 4 (the Wii U) and other Wii U stuff. Kody played Pokemon Shuffle and Ace Attorney. James didn’t have too much gaming time but it was spent with Insurgency and Blackguards. The news opens with Net Neutrality and closes with nothing anywhere close to as important as Net Neutrality!
