I just realized I haven’t done one of my “Hey you should be reading this other stuff I did” posts lately. Well then.
This week’s Retronauts episode consists of audio from the panel we hosted at Seattle Retro Gaming Expo last month. I didn’t really expect people to like this, because it’s just a bunch of anecdotes and personal memories, but surprisingly a ton of people have come forward to express their enjoyment of it. Further proof that I have no idea what other people enjoy.
I spoke with one of the producers on Call of Duty: Ghosts about the addition of female characters and dogs to the roster. Not surprisingly, there’s already an angry comment that we would have the audacity to write about the addition of female characters.
A slightly meandering piece on Metal Gear Solid V and how giving up its own heritage is actually part of Metal Gear‘s heritage. If that makes any sense.
SteamWorld Dig is really cool. You should play it.
Speaking of SteamWorld Dig, I’ve made my first foray onto the new Talking Time server by recreating the old metroidvania page as a proper Metroidvania.com. It still has a long way to go, but I’ve been meaning to do this for years. Now that I have a handle on the new host’s CMS, I intend to relocate Talking Time itself to the forums. And it’ll be getting its own URL: talking-time.net. Bookmark that page for the future! And… expect some service outages this weekend.
