EXP Podcast #460: A Genre is Born

I was born this way.
It's not every day when you see a new genre emerge.  Kart racing, fighting games, and now perhaps battle royal?  This week we start off with a visit to our favorite vaguely post-apocalyptic eastern-European island and eventually travel to the limits of how we categorize some of our favorite types of games.

We have... uh... this to look forward to?
It's time to put the old behind us! 2017 was a great year for games, but who's to say 2018 won't be even better. With God of War, Wattam, and maybe even Red Dead Redemption around the corner, there are a ton of games to look forward to. This week, we count down our most anticipated games of the new year.

EXP Podcast #457: 2017 Games of the Year

Our Gamey Winner loved 2017!
One of the best years in gaming is coming to a close. Seriously. Throw a dart at a pile of 2017 games and you're likely to hit an absolute classic. Polygon even called 2017 "the best year in games since 2007," and that brought us The Orange Box, BioShock, Super Mario Galaxy, Rockband, and Mass Effect - and it's true. In other words, it was really difficult to cull down our favorite games to just three each.

Enjoy this week's podcast (we sure did). And hey. Let us know your 2017 GOTY, won't you? You can reach us by email, in the comments, or you can find us on Twitter. Be sure to come back next week for 2017 leftovers.

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.
