EXP Podcast #417: The Valve Veil

Have we ever confirmed that this guy isn't huge mech?
You know that old abandoned house in your neighborhood? Well it's probably just a sad, empty echo of happier times that no one is particularly interested in revisiting. Then again, it might be an elaborate shell; an ornate elevator to a secret underground bunker where (at this very moment) Valve is hard at work designing the new...thing...that will consume all our lives. Erik Wolpaw's departure and the end of Steam Greenlight are simply signs that even more resources are needed for the wonderful, terrifying creation that has yet to be released.

Is Hyper Light Drifter a "Souls" game? I.e., is it hard, but fair? I.e., does it fall into the burgeoning
mini genre of "hardbutfair?" We hope you like pixels, cause this game has a whole mess of them!

EXP Podcast #416: Dark Souls and Genre Defining Games

"Have you met my sister Quelaag?"
This week we are inspired by a Waypoint article arguing that Nioh proves that Dark Souls has created a genre. If so, what does that genre include and what should we call it? Does it bring any value to games to classify genres like this? These are important questions, but not half as important as this one: What ever happened to the Bro-Shooter?

Thanks for listening and feel free to reach out with your genre defining games!
