EXP Podcast #681: Hello Mario and Goodbye Stadia

Mario needs a cough drop
Google decided to shut down Stadia, so unfortunately all those games you may have bought are evaporating in what you might call a cloud-like manner. Don't worry though: something has appeared to fill the spiritual void: it's Mario's new voice. This week we talk about the artistic and moral tightrope that is the Super Mario Bros. Movie as well as the postmortem view of Stadia.

EXP Podcast #680: Chess Cheating & Fishy Business

Hans translating morse?
This week on the EXP Podcast, cheating is everywhere! From a chess story that includes major upsets, multiple cheating accusations, and rumors of butt-plug involvement to a fishing scandal that almost riled up a violent mob. Could it be that digital competitions are more authentic than real world events?

EXP Podcast #679: The Immortal Cult of Kirby

Exploit those i-frames, Kirby.
It's officially Fall, which means we have precious few weeks to wrap up some of the other games we've been playing before the end of year release bounty arrives.  This week we come with a pretty wide selection, both thematically and mechanically.  We explore the goofier side of cult-life with Cult of the Lamb.  We have a snack at the end of the world with Kirby and the Forgotten Land.  And we get side eye from our significant others as we painstakingly scrub through full-frontal sex scenes in Immortality.

Oh hi. It's me again!

EXP Podcast #677: Gamescom 2022 Grab Bag

I would love if it was a live call in show.

We couldn't move past Gamescom without taking a look at some of the announcements that got our attention.  But really, we should all acknowledge the elephant in the room Hideo Kojima's new podcast.  We implore you: find room in your heart for two podcasts.  But if you can't, we get it: morbid curiosity alone is enough to check out Kojima's new show.  Just know that, after it's revealed that his podcast was just an elaborate way to get all your Internet-connected devices trapped in a massive botnet dedicated to forming a strand-based compute cluster for optimizing egg recipes while listening to mp3s of Bauhaus vinyl records, we will welcome you back with open arms.
