EXP Podcast #429: Digital Disappearances in the News

You can take my licensed music from my cold dead hands!
This week we take a break to read the video game news and learn of many mysterious disappearances.  Alan Wake has vanished, Red Dead Redemption 2 is no where to be found, and Destiny 2 is no where to be found on Steam, and Peter Parker is apparently hiding under the pseudonym "Nathan Drake."  Time to get to the bottom of all this.

EXP Podcast #428: The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild Debrief, Part 3

Urbosa is cooler than Link. Clearly.
The further adventure of Scott and Jorge in Hyrule continues! This week on the podcast, we take on cursed dragons, question the logic of putting children into seats of power, and discuss the social habits of the bad-ass Gerudo warriors.

If you're playing Breath of the Wild, you can play along with us! In Part 4, we'll be taking out the last two divine beats and readying ourselves for Calamity Ganon. Let's go!

EXP Podcast #427: What Remains of Edith Finch debrief

Again, stay safe and please follow all building codes.
You know, the most tragic thing about What Remains of Edith Finch is that all the tragedy could have been avoided with a competent architect and a proper building inspection.  Structural issues aside, there are still plenty of things to talk about in Giant Sparrow's latest narrative-driven game.  Strap in: it's one where we discuss the very nature of the medium itself.  Plus there's some Wendigo talk in there too.

"I'M GLAD YOU COULD MAKE IT!"
This week on the EXP Podcast, we journey to find the dark soul, deep in the Ringed City. It's the last time we delve into a Dark Souls game. What does this foray hold besides numerous deaths? Where will the adventure lead us? What will we do if it leads us to Midir?
