EXP Podcast #124: Now in HD!

There are so many great games from the past, but do they look terrible on your huge HD television? Are those blocky polygons jarring and atrocious? Maybe we should convert them to high resolution remakes. Or maybe not. Sometimes, as Michael Abbot states, "better isn't better." This week on the EXP Podcast, Scott and I discuss the risks and rewards of HD remakes, touching upon designer intent, history lesson box-sets, contextual play, and more. As always, you can find Michael's original article in the show notes. We also encourage you to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

  3. Thanks y'all! Should be fixed now.

  4. Just found the show randomly searching the radio stations on my home up here in Queensbury. I really enjoy the show and respect the way you guys speak about video game culture. As someone who is about to launch a video game theme web site in May, I really enjoy the inspiration and entertainment you guys provided.
