EXP Podcast #604: 2020 Leftovers

We all could use a magical deer hug this year.
2020 is almost behind us, but before we go, it's time to take another look back at some of the games that didn't make it to the very top of our lists.  Unlike almost everything else that happened this year, video games were pretty good, which means that we have some very tasty leftovers to sample.  Throw on those sweatpants, plant yourself on the couch, and let's run the clock down on this year and look forward to the next.

EXP Podcast #602: The 2020 Gamey Awards

Whisk us away to Gamey-land, Flight Simulator.
Neither plague, nor fascism, nor new console scalpers could stop it: The Gameys have arrived.  This week it's time for our annual game awards.  Our yearly counter-programming/trolling of Geoff Keighley let's us blow off some steam while also recognizing the games and categories that truly matter.  We got gear grinders, waifus/husbandus, baffling Nintendo moves and more.  And of course we bestow the title of gamey-est game of the year to one special title.  Thank you for attending and please do not take the gift baskets home; they are for decorative purposes only.

EXP Podcast #601: The Pathless Debrief

Yes, you can pet the bird.
This week we played a game where you and a faithful animal side-kick traverse beautiful wind-swept valleys, navigate ancient ruins, and fight magnificent cursed beasts to free the spirits inside. But enough about Shadow of the Collosus! This week on the podcast we review The Pathless, the latest game from Giant Squid. This is a gorgeous game with an interesting lineage and well worth your attention.

If you give the game a shot and let us know what you think!

EXP Podcast #600: Demon's Souls Debrief

This is going to feel great.
This week we open we bridge a temporal rift and debrief on Demon's Souls.  With Jorge's knowledge of the 2020 incarnation and Scott's knowledge of the 2009 incarnation, we manage to assemble just enough knowledge to understand that some of Demon's Souls' mysteries will be forever shrouded in arcane lore and obscure flavor text.  But seriously, if anyone tells you they understand World Tendency they're lying to you.

EXP Podcast #599: Bugsnax Debrief

The horror. The horror!
Bugsnax is probably the weirdest game of 2020. Part children's game, part adult body-horror, this game takes the saying "you are what you eat" to frightening conclusion. Join as we eat our way through a strange meld of Pokemon and an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.
