EXP Podcast #432: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Debrief, Part 5

A hungry Link gazes upon Hyrule and plans his next meal.
We finally did it!  Ganon is banished, Hyrule is peaceful(ish), and we can go back to pursuing our true passion: equine science.  Or maybe we'll finally open up our hearty durian farm.  Then again, our shield surfing skills could use some work if we hope to make the olympics this year.  In any case, we've finally finished Breath of the Wild and it's time to talk about the big picture.

EXP Podcast #431: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Debrief, Part 4

Who wouldn't want to hang out with this guy?
Our march through Hyrule continues.  In this penultimate debrief, we find some mysterious glowing animals, play a round of golf, and visit the Rito and and Gorons.  Jorge laments the cruel blood moon and Scott pours one out for Andre, the giant horse.  Next up: Calamity Ganon and beyond!

EXP Podcast #430: Overwatch Anniversary Party

"Happy birthday!"
Overwatch is officially a year old this month. Help us celebrate by discussing the state of the game today, how much I personally kick ass as Junkrat, and what the future holds for Blizzard's heavy-hitter. Also, let's take some time to think about the other one-year-old games that none of us can remember.

EXP Podcast #429: Digital Disappearances in the News

You can take my licensed music from my cold dead hands!
This week we take a break to read the video game news and learn of many mysterious disappearances.  Alan Wake has vanished, Red Dead Redemption 2 is no where to be found, and Destiny 2 is no where to be found on Steam, and Peter Parker is apparently hiding under the pseudonym "Nathan Drake."  Time to get to the bottom of all this.

EXP Podcast #428: The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild Debrief, Part 3

Urbosa is cooler than Link. Clearly.
The further adventure of Scott and Jorge in Hyrule continues! This week on the podcast, we take on cursed dragons, question the logic of putting children into seats of power, and discuss the social habits of the bad-ass Gerudo warriors.

If you're playing Breath of the Wild, you can play along with us! In Part 4, we'll be taking out the last two divine beats and readying ourselves for Calamity Ganon. Let's go!

EXP Podcast #427: What Remains of Edith Finch debrief

Again, stay safe and please follow all building codes.
You know, the most tragic thing about What Remains of Edith Finch is that all the tragedy could have been avoided with a competent architect and a proper building inspection.  Structural issues aside, there are still plenty of things to talk about in Giant Sparrow's latest narrative-driven game.  Strap in: it's one where we discuss the very nature of the medium itself.  Plus there's some Wendigo talk in there too.
