Intro/outro music: JACKS - Runaway Fashion & an old modem
In this episode we discuss the emerging trend of adding massively multiplayer features to games that otherwise might be single player. Is this something we want to see more? Or is it just a way of extracting more 'value' from gamers?
Happy New Year everyone! In this episode we are joined again by Antonia, who last joined us to talk about Stardew Valley. This time, the three of us discuss some of the video games we're most looking forward to in 2018.
Sefran: Far Cry 5, Into the breach, and Wargroove.
Antonia: Monster Hunter World, Ni No Kuni 2, Kingdom Hearts III, and Bayonetta 3.
Jalada: Sea of Thieves, Last of Us Part 2, and Age of Empires 4.
In this episode we return to the topic of platformers. All the things we love, some of the things we hate.
Not much in the way of notes for this episode; we really just sit back and have a bit of a chat. Enjoy!
