EXP Podcast #518: Ape Out Debrief

Wanted: An enraged, jazzy gorilla
Despite all my rage, I am still just an massive silverback gorilla in a cage.  What's this?  A single weakened bar?  Well this should get interesting.

This week, we debrief on Ape Out.  Do yourself a favor: support your fellow primates and play this game.

EXP Podcast #517: Detective Reggie

Puppet Reggie will now act
as interim President
This week on the EXP Podcast, we say goodbye to Reggie, who will now spend all of his retirement getting good at Smash Bros. Ultimate, hitting the competitive circuit, and making children cry when they dunked on by Isabelle.

Also, the Detective Pikachu movie is coming out and it raises more questions than answers.

EXP Podcast #516: Direct from the Battle Royale

Introducing the next Smash character: a Tetris block!
Behold the modern battlefield: a dusty techno-future teeming with mercenaries and killer robots.  And then, from the heavens falls a mighty obelisk.  As it slots perfectly into place, the plateau you've been standing on evaporates.  The remnants rain down mercilessly on your opponents and you think to yourself: "Maybe I should go make some Mario levels instead."

This week we do a check in Apex Legends, Tetris 99, and some highlights from the latest Nintendo Direct.

EXP Podcast #515: Re-Re-Remix

"YOU GUYS WANT TO HANG OUT?"
Time is a flat circle and in this timeline, we're playing Resident Evil 2... again. As of today, we'll also be playing Final Fantasy 9 again, which is great because it gives us a JRPG to play while we wait for Final Fantasy 7 - the game that came out before FF9 but whose remake will come out first and may or may not be a significant departure from what the game actually was ORIGINALLY!

Phew... But will Final Fantasy be around in 100 years? You tell us!

EXP Podcast #513: Gris Debrief

"Wall-worthy artwork."
This week on the EXP Podcast, we debrief the artfully crafted Gris, one of our top contenders for prettiest game of 2018. The first game from Nomada Studios, Gris brings a ton of inspiration from Journey, drawing not just themes, but almost entire sequences - so you can imagine why Scott and I would be so interested in this game.

Check out the podcast, then try out the game and let us know what you think!

EXP Podcast #510: 2018 Leftovers

2018 as represented by food prepared by cats.
2018 is over but before it's out of site we're going to take a quick look in the rear view mirror.  As always, there were some great games that didn't make it into our GOTY-cast.  This week, we give them their due and ponder another important question: should we call this show "The Leftoveys" or have I truly snapped?
