EXP Podcast #477: Blockchains and Buybacks

It's a me: the blockchain!
Quick: tell me everything you know about cryptocurrency and the buying and selling of video games!  Joke's on you: while you've been struggling to put together an explanation that is simultaneously cogent without making you sound like a snake oil salesman, I've mined all those precious digital coins you covet so much.  I'm off to buy all the sweetest games.  Maybe if you're lucky, I'll sell them to you.  Yes; this week we're talking about a trifecta of topics we have only a vague grasp on: blockchain, cryptocurrency, and the used games market.  Join us in trying to figure out this exhausting new world!

EXP Podcast #476: Nintendo Switch Online Inspection

Now I can start training for the Balloon Fight esports league.
Well they finally did it: Nintendo has blocked the doorway to online play with a guy in a Waluigi hat stationed in front to collect your hard earned money.  Buying your way in isn't outrageously expensive (especially compared to club Sony and the Microsoft discotheque), but will it be worth it?  This week, we dive in to the announcement and dissect what we'll see once we get past the velvet rope.

EXP Podcast #475: Rules of Parley

Do I start the parley or do you?
I declare Parley! Which I think means you have to stop what you're doing and listen to this episode. This week on the EXP Podcast, we discuss the unspoken rule of Parley in Sea of Thieves that is making the waters a little more sailor-friendly.

But we don't end on those salty shores. What other forms of unspoken rules have you experienced in games? And was that born from the community or did developers encourage that behavior? Reach out and parley with us, won't you?
