We are all back this week – except for Stanley whose whereabouts are unknown. Byrdie is sitting in as host and apparently hosting gives him an NPR style voice that is very distracting for the rest of the group.
For the first time this season Malic takes us to the indie gaming world with Independent Pixel. We talk about two games that allow players to unleash their inner game designer: Sketch Nation Studio from Engineous Games and Code Hero from Primer Labs.
In News Conference we talk about an article from Kill Screen Magazine’s blog about what is means to complete video games. We discovered we have very different opinions about the necessity of actually finishing video games. We also bring up the controversial ending to Mass Effect 3 which makes us all sad.
Finally for Personal Choice we talk about games where we would rather play as the antagonist than the protagonist.
