EXP Podcast #448: Too Cool To Be True

"I listen to the podcast with a glass of rosé."
This week on the EXP Podcast, we have reports from Destiny 2's first raid, our thoughts on the upcoming slate of Nintendo games as well as the company's bizarre approach to streaming, and a conversation about Red Dead Redemption 2. Will "Juan" Marston make an appearance? I sure hope so. All this and more, so give it a listen!

EXP Podcast #447: Epic PUBG Drama

This is  business casual, right?
Forget about the carnage taking place within the slowly shrinking blue circle; this week we're talking about a vicious battle taking place outside of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.  Ok, maybe it's actually more of a slap fight, but even so it's still entertaining.  Epic has decided to release its own Battle Royale mode in their game Fortnite, but Blue Hole (publishers of PUBG) don't like the fact that their engine vendor seems to be directly lifting their playbook.  I think the only way to resolve this is to drop them both onto and island and let them battle for supremacy.

EXP Podcast #446: Players Behaving Badly

"Nerf Toxic D.Va Skin. Bliz Plz."
This week on the EXP Podcast, we wrestle with the dark underbelly of online gaming - its own players. With toxicity causing trouble in Overwatch, Steam's failure to address racist community groups, Campo Santo striking back against PewDiePie, the topic is on our mind. Even Bungie is reeling from a piece of armor that looks uncomfortably similar to a white supremacist logo. How should developers and publishers police their own communities? Should they?

This is a touchy subject this week folks. We're sending our positive thoughts your way. Keep up the good fight!

EXP Podcast #443: Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Debrief

Maybe she's born with it...
This week we take a journey to the north and debrief on Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.  This game was flying beneath our radar, but we couldn't be happier that we made the time to play it.  Do yourself a favor: grab some headphones, carve out a few hours, and thank your lucky stars that you don't live under the constant threat of being stalked by Fenrir.

EXP Podcast #442: Titanfall 2 and Mecha Boredom

"I'm cool, right?"
This week on the EXP Podcast, we pay a visit to Titanfall 2 and wonder where everyone went. Was it the dull brown of the landscape that cleared the room? Would this game be more popular if it had brighter colors, cooler names, or banana rockets? The answer is clearly yes.

Everything is better with banana rockets.
