EXP Podcast #644: Arcane Debrief

"Who you calling crazy?"
From the beautiful vistas of Piltover to the decrepit alleys of Zaun, there is a lot to explore in the latest video game adaptation to grace our television and the front page of Netflix. This week on the EXP Podcast, we join our good friends Jinx, Vi, Jayce, and a few other characters from League of Legends as we review Arcane, a new animated series of Riot Games.

Is this the new pillar of video game adaptations?

EXP Podcast #643: Eastward to Jurassic World Evolution 2

I'm definitely buying a season pass.
If there are two things Jorge and I are comforted by, it's dinosaurs and pixel art.  This week, we get to partake in both as we share some initial impressions on Jurassic World Evolution 2 and Eastward.  The seem different on the surface, but I'd argue that if both of them put us in the same happy frame of mind, then there must be some shared DNA.  Dino DNA as Mr. DNA might say.

EXP Podcast #642: Metroid Dread Debrief

That Portal 2 robot got jacked.

Samus Aran is back... but in a dreadful state! This week on the EXP Podcast, we hop into Metroid Dread and empty our salvo of missiles into the latest blend of side-scrolling horror-stealth.... uh.... Metroidvania-style thing. It's a mixed bag this one, but at least it has robots!

EXP Podcast #641: Demakes, Suspect Expansion Packs, and Nathan Drake Goes to Hollywood

That quicktime event prompt was right there!
Bloodborne as an alternate reality PlayStation 1 release?  Nintendo does its classics dirty?  Uncharted and the snake that ate its own tail?  Alright I guess that's why Sony didn't ask for my advice in naming the movie.  This week we catch up on some fall headlines as we start to gear up for the end of the year.

EXP Podcast #639: Four on the Floor

With four buddies, I like these odds!
We're almost always a two-person show around these parts, but when it comes to games, it seems like four is the magic number.  Inspired by a recent Polygon article about why so many multiplayer games anchor around a four-player concept, this week is all about quad squads.  Is it technology or society that has us hooked on four as a sweet spot?  Look into the four chambers of your heart and decide.

EXP Podcast #638: Mute All

"GGEZ"
The Forever-War against online toxicity continues and the latest victim may be All Chat. Riot Games recently announced they will be testing out a  new policy in which players can no longer text chat with the opposing team, calling it a "vehicle for toxicity." This week on the podcast, we jump right into that vehicle and drive around for a while to see how it feels with and without a direct line to the enemy team.
