EXP Podcast #610: Casting Call!

He's been training for this his whole life.
Please excuse all the cigar chomping noises on this week's show: we've become Hollywood producers and were told that cigars were a requirement.  Video game movies and casting choices collide this week, as we cover quirky robots, furry animals, and fantasy directors' cuts.  Just be glad that we didn't release the Snyder cut of this episode; it's 7 hours long.

EXP Podcast #609: Digital Restorations

"I'm not that odd."
Like digital Robin-hoods, internet sleuths and criminals have patched together two pieces of video game history. The first is the unforgettable GoldenEye 007 which is alive again with some buttery-smooth frame rates. The second is the audio tracks for Super Mario World. This week on the podcast, we chat about salvaging history by means of unethical behavior.

Oh, and E3 is back too. Sort of...

EXP Podcast #608: A Night at the Video Game Museum

Everyone's favorite museum curator
Jorge and I have apparently planned out our retirement: we're going to find a museum, set up shop with a little "artifacts you can touch" cart, and lure people in to talk about video games.  We still have a ways to go before living that docent life, but we can at least imagine it.  Thanks to Nicole Carpenter's recent article about the links between video games and museums, we had the chance to go through some of our favorite virtual exhibits.

EXP Podcast #607: Into the Monsterverse

This week on the EXP Podcast, we go big - and I mean really big! Today we cover the latest trailer for Godzilla vs Kong, a new film in the "Monsterverse" film franchise and why we're so fascinated by massive beasts and the disasters they bring. We also identify some games that achieve an enormous sense of scale, or at least more enormous than most games.

 

Got a favorite Godzilla game or movie? Toss us an email and let us know!

EXP Podcast #606: Screentime Scamps

Might as well be a real picture of me and my son.
Won't somebody please think of the children?  This week, we heed Helen Lovejoy's plea and step into the fraught environment of parenting choices and children's' screen time.  Inspired by the continuing pandemic as well as a New York Times article on the subject, we dissect the increased screen time kids (along with everyone else) is getting.  I suppose this is a good time to pat ourselves on the pack for making an audio show; no screens necessary!
