EXP Podcast #627: Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart Debrief

When God closes a door, he opens a rift
I have my issues with our particular dimension of reality and all its various...quirks...but games like Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart prove that there is definitely fun to be had.  We've finished the game, so this week we're doing a full debrief on both the mechanics and the plot.  Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to converting my sprinkler system into an anti-robot security network.

EXP Podcast #626: Nintendo Kickstand Hype

Look at that glorious kickstand
Nintendo is back at it again with a confounding, exciting(?), and curious update to their Nintendo Switch hardware lineup. Stand aside Switch Lite! Out of the way Nintendo Pro! Let's give an exciting applause for the Nintendo Switch OLED Model. That's right it's... *checks notes* slightly bigger!

Join us this week to have some jolly fun and discussing what we do find exciting about incremental upgrades.

EXP Podcast #625: Directors Cuts and Summer Scoops

The living embodiment of the director's cut.
Ghost of Tsushima, Sony goes on a buying spree, Magic loses its...magic?  The long, protracted summer of game announcements continues!  Who would have guessed that a severely altered and smaller E3 would actually succeed in scattering a bunch of game news spores across the entire month of June?  Far be it from us to look a gift horse in the mouth.  This week, we talk about everything from director's cuts to Internet conspiracy theories as we continue wade through the flood of announcements and rumors.

EXP Podcast #623: E3 2021 Debrief

Why not, I guess?
The multi-day fever dream that somewhat resembled E3 is over.  This week we survey some of the notable announcements.  These takes are so hot that you'd need the world's most powerful mini fridge to cool them down.  Lucky for you: your friends at Microsoft have just the solution.

EXP Podcast #622: Pokémon Snap and Chill

"I'm naked right now."
This week we hop onto the Pokémon Snap train... that slow, trudging train though a bizarro zoo, and report back with our findings. We also gush about some upcoming chill games that caught our interest ahead of the big E3 weekend!

EXP Podcast #621: SteamPal, Fantasy Souls, and E3 Identity Crisis

Chocobo, pictured here in Dark Souls attire
This week we take a breath between Returnal runs and before what is most definitely going to be a very weird E3 to talk about some news stories.  Lots of loose talk swirling around about everything from new Final Fantasy games to new Valve hardware, so join us in the rumor mill.  Just know that if anyone releases a semi-portable console with the form factor of a standard computer keyboard, they stole the idea from us.
