EXP Podcast #540: More Like "Terry Bogus"

A man from a simpler time.
Another month, another Nintendo Direct full of the hottest, most delectable morsels a person could ask for.  Or at least that's the case for fans of Terry Bogard (you weirdos).  This week we offer our takes on all of the recent announcements as well as try our hand at some international cultural analysis by way of region-specific Smash character requests.  Apparently there's a huge diversity of opinion out there, except when it comes to Kingdom Hearts.

EXP Podcast #537: Selling Stadia

Cheesy, but effective?
Google held another big announcement recently revealing some pricing around their games streaming platform and an assortment of games that will appear on the platform when it soft-launches this year and becomes fully available sometime in 2020. Google has lofty ambitions, but does the messaging live up to the dream?

This week on the EXP Podcast, we help sell Stadia to all the boys and girls of the world!

EXP Podcast #536: Embrace your Dadstiny

Cargo shorts not pictured
Bust out your grill and put some sandals over those socks, Guardian: it's time to build the dad loadout.  This week, we discuss the phenomenon of the "dad build."  It's a concept that has arisen from players pursuing in-game equipment that is useful but also attainable in the hopes that they can stay competitive without having to neglect their real-world responsibilities.

Now, allow me to channel my inner dad and ask you all to just sit and listen to the show quietly.  Don't make me pull this podcast over.

EXP Podcast #535: Mixer Ninjutsu

The happy face of a rich man getting richer
Like his feudal warrior class namesake, Ninja - one of the biggest gaming streamers on the internet - has disappeared and reappeared on a different platform. It seems like a minor thing for a gaming culture celebrity to move from one service to another, but it could be a sign that Microsoft is setting the stage for retaking their place at the forefront of the gaming culture landscape.

 Or maybe Tyler "Ninja" Blevins is so damn he rich he can just do whatever he wants!
