I don’t normally review the Telltale games for a couple of reasons. First, they’re episodic, and I don’t usually get around to playing them until they are all wrapped up, or will play one episode right before the next comes out. Then wait to play that one. Secondly, with the story choices, I feel like my gaming experience is going to be different than yours. But after playing episode one of Telltale’s second season of Batman, I thought I’d give it a go, because you all should play this game. Mild spoilers ahead. (more…)
It’s just me on this week’s episode, so I am giving some thoughts I have regarding the Nintendo Switch, now that I’ve had a few months with it. Games discussed include Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (no spoilers), Puyo Puyo Tetris, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, and Snipperclips.
In this week’s episode, we’re focusing on book 5 of The Dark Tower series, Wolves of the Calla. But before that, we’re spending a little bit of time talking about some games that caught our attention at E3, and Maggott is featured in “Better Know an X-Man.”
In this week’s episode, we’re discussing Assassin’s Creed, games and movie. That also leads us to a discussion on why we think movie adaptations of video games are frequently not critically and/or financially successful. Revanche is featured in this week’s “Better Know an X-Man.”
In this week’s episode of Podicus Wrecks, we’re discussing Marvels, by Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross. Why would we discuss a 23 year-old mini-series, you ask? Well, because Anthony has never read it, and we felt strongly that this was a must-read series. It is just a fantastic look at the beginnings of the Marvel Universe through the eyes of a photographer. Also included in this episode, Jacob attempts to convince us to play Persona 5 and Changeling is featured in this week’s “Better Know an X-Man.”
Even though I really suck at multiplayer shooters, I bought Star Wars Battlefront because it was Star Wars. I had a little bit of fun with it for a couple months after release, but I haven’t played it at all since then. Hoping to finish somewhere in the middle of your team is only fun for so long. Also, I didn’t want to spend the extra money on all of the DLC maps, and quickly lost a desire to continue. I told myself that there was no way that I would entertain the notion of buying the inevitable sequel. And then this trailer was released.
The thought of a single player campaign that focuses on an Imperial special forces group after the Battle of Endor really intrigues me. I love side stories like that. I love opportunities to play as the villain. But again, I still have the knowledge that I still suck at multiplayer shooters. The big question for me is how big is the campaign? If it’s 5-6 hours, then for myself, it is not worth the $60 at launch, but we’ll see. Only time will tell if I have the strength and will power to resist getting this game come November, and am able to wait for a price drop so I can play the single player campaign. Or if I see it in a store and impulse buy it.
In this episode, we have a follow-up to how terrible Anthony and J.R.’s brackets have turned out, we discuss writers being duly credited for the stories they write (2:09), this week’s “Better Know an X-Man” features Husk (7:32), Jacob gives us a lesson on the convoluted history of Xorn (12:47), and we wrap out by talking about some video games we have been playing (43:28).
