This is a topic about video games. There are also spoilers for the Fast & Furious series. As if there could be spoilers for that series.
Mark and Chris sperg out about Arrested Development. And then we talk about bringing back an old game. What needs to change to reinvigorate you? Will your players care? Will anyone care? Is anybody listening?
Let’s talk about myth and religions in games. Which ones are well represented? Which do interesting things with belief? Which ones are terrible? For some reason, this episode cuts off at the end. It is a mystery.
It’s a short episode for a short movie, which we unilaterally hated. That might be a first.
We talk about our favorite fluff from RPGs, the worst fluff, and the dated fluff. And we’re missing Dale, so there’s relatively few arguments. Is that a good thing? There’s also a ten minute discussion of Iron Man 3, if you want to skip ahead a bit.
If you were going to a desert island with some roleplaying books (We’d suggest you bring food and shelter first, but whatever), what three supplements for that game should you also bring? We discuss our faves as well as what they offer.
This movie drove us mad - with how bad it is. We debate the finer instances of accents, tentacles, and bad pop fiction.
Books, that’s what. Bookie book book. We get all pretentious up in this one.
We discuss lines of dialogue and scenes that utterly killed any investment we had in a property. Also, dumb song lyrics because those are dumb too.
When does a game overstay its welcome? When do you need an expansion to revitalize it? Who knows?
