EXP Podcast #455: Nier: Automata Debrief

Casual Friday
This week on the EXP Podcast, we review the much-lauded Nier: Automata, a game that hides far more in its rusty, goofy-looking robots than you might expect. Love it or hate it, this is a one-of-a-kind game, so this is a debrief I've been eager to release. Give it a listen! When you're done, definitely look up the soundtrack - it's pretty great.

EXP Podcast #453: Giving Thanks

Thanks Mario!
It's that time of the year where friends and families gather around an offensively large portion of food and give thanks. This time, Scott and I are joining the festivities by serving up some of the things we're thankful for in games. From esports money to in-game settings, here are some of the underappreciated life-changers we're glad to have in our gaming habitat.

Thanks, of course, to our listeners. We'll be back next week with more EXP Podcast. In the meantime, happy holidays!

EXP Podcast #451: News from Paris Games Week

Bask in the glory
Ah, Paris: city of Zombies, ninjas, and procedurally generated adventures.  This week, we talk about Sony's showing at Paris Games Week.  There was a surprising amount of brand new stuff, so we dig through the announcements and maybe even commit a bit of light blasphemy by comparing Spelunky to the bible.

EXP Podcast #450: Cuphead Debrief

The splitting image of the podcast hosts.
Scott and I have weaved our way through a barrage of bullets, over fields of violent vegetables, and through terrifying trainyards to bring you this week's EXP Podcast. At least, Cuphead is here and we've drunk down all (or most) of what the game has to offer. What makes this game so special? How difficult is Cuphead really? And did the conversation around its challenging nature tarnish our anticipation for this cartoon-era-inspired gem? All this and more down below!
