EXP Podcast #441: Considering a Comeback

Come back!  This guy's been missing you.
Sometimes, you play a game once and then bounce off, never to return.  Other times you see the potential, but are put off by a weird mechanic.  And sometimes you're just too damn lazy to leave the house and interact with other human beings.  This week, we discuss some games we're considering returning to.  Some of them we've finished, others we originally gave up on.  We also invent a new Pokemon Go mechanic that would be as dangerous as it would be entertaining.

EXP Podcast #439: Nothin' but a PUBG Thang

Looks like the Resident Evil 4 dlc is live
Summertime means relaxing on an island.  After murdering the 99 other people on that island of course.  This week we dive out of a plane and into Player Unknown's Battlegrounds.  Along the way we learn about abbreviations, Twitch drama, and that there's a high correlation between a game having someone's name in the title and its quality.

Captain Malcolm Reynolds
This week on the EXP Podcast, we put on our space helmets and meet up in the Tower to discuss the Destiny 2 beta. How do the new classes feel? Is this a significant departure from the first Destiny? Tune in to find out.

How money hours will we spend farming motes of light and dying to BS raid bosses when the game actually comes? Who knows!?

EXP Podcast #437 - Star Wars LARPing

True Star Wars immersion technology.
Strap on your bowcaster and fire up your T-16s folks: it's time to get immersed in the world of Star Wars.  Disney is looking to bring a "100 percent immersive" Star Wars experience to us Earthlings, so Jorge and I decided it would be a good idea to brainstorm what the future has in store for us.  Video games have dealt with the challenging concept of immersion for a long time, so we discuss some of the potential benefits and challenges of trying to stage an entire Star Wars live-action experience.

EXP Podcast #436: Persona 5 Debrief

"But I'm not sleepy!"
The last few months have been a whirlwind of good times with my Tokyo buds. I've laughed, I've cried, I've told my cat to shut up. Now, at long last, I've finally finished Persona 5. While it'll be awhile before Scott graduates Shujin Academy, it's time we dive into the hotly anticipated entry in the long-running Persona franchise.

How do the characters stand out compared to Persona 4? Is this game more approachable? Which confident should you romance? All this and more in another EXP Podcast!
