EXP Podcast #494: Swinging into the Donut Breach

Man, I could really go for a donut.
It's September, which means it's back to school and back to games!  This week to do a check in on three current games we've been playing: Marvel's Spiderman, Donut County, and Into the Breach.  Now that I look at it, I find the variety between those games extremely cool.  Hopefully I can use this bounty to redirect my urge to binge on donuts into an urge to binge on games.  My waistline will thank me.

EXP Podcast #493: Hard Pass

"Exactly Ryuji. Exactly."
Fishing? Who needs it. Crafting? No thanks. Alchemy? That's someone else's job.

This week on the EXP Podcast, we're discussing all the wonderfully crafted game systems we just never seem to care about. From skinning animals to make larger wallets to harvesting herbs to brew all kinds of potions. With so much to do, how could we possibly do all of it?

Have you got a game system you always ignore? Shoot us an email and let us know!

EXP Podcast #492: Dead Cells Debrief

My wallet is somewhere on that island.
I used to be worried about gene splicing, but then Motion Twin synthesized a hybrid of Dark Souls, Spelunky, Castlevania, along with a generous helping of their own secret sauce.  Now I'm fully onboard with our wonderful future of procedural, rogue-like, side-scrolling combat exploration games.  This week, we talk about Dead Cells!

EXP Podcast #491: Everyone Hates Luigi

"It's-a-me... weegee."
Admit it. You hate Luigi.

Even if you don't, we can all agree the younger Mario brother is the "green sheep" in the family. Inspired by Polygon's recent history of Luigi's unfortunate status in gaming, we discuss our feelings towards loser characters - from Luigi to Link.

Do you have a game character you love to hate? Let us know in the comments or toss us an email!

EXP Podcast #490: Technophilia

"Oh my god.
I can't see a thing with these on!"
The future is here! Again. For at least the third time this year. It's like the future doesn't want to leave us alone. This week on the EXP Podcast, we discuss the MagicLeap, a new pair of Alternate Reality goggles that promise to change the way we see the world - and the way we play in it. You can own this particular technological wonder for $2,395. Ouch!

Is it time we stop being so excited about the future?

EXP Podcast #489: Nintendo by the Numbers

This guy will help crunch the numbers.
We've always suspected that Nintendo has sold millions of hardware and software units, but what if I told you they made mii-lions?  Well now you can check for yourself!  Nintendo has taken their investor relations site to the next level and opened the books on all (well, almost all; RIP Virtual Boy) their console platforms.  This week we dive in and compare the golden geese with the goose eggs!
