Carlos and Dave discuss issues of consent when it comes to being asked to give everything to protect your home, and how dishonesty through omission fudges that.

e084: The Stopping Power of Soft Foam Darts

e084: The Stopping Power of Soft Foam Darts



A smattering of topics today. Notable timestamps:

0:00:00 - SSX Tricky talk, introductions, Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator demo talk, a whole bunch of School Live anime/manga mind scarring, random rambling.

0:09:51 - Carlos revisits his old eBook opinions on pricing and whatnot. Boy was he wrong!

0:18:00 - We revisit another old topic: Slender. We made an entire episode of this podcast dedicated to how garbage a mythology and game series Slender is. Have our opinions changed? Spoiler alert: no, they haven't! We also compare Slender to Five Nights at Freddy's.

0:21:44 - Dave brings up that it's awesome that Steam is seeing games that were formerly portable/console exclusive, like Code of Princess.

0:22:50 - Carlos says shit to piss Dave off, so Dave starts firing Nerf guns at Carlos. Did we mention this is an audio podcast?

0:25:26 - Where the fuck is Mighty No. 9? Also Kickstarter, tactical RPGs, and lots of Final Fantasy talk.

0:42:16 - Critical questions about the new Star Ocean game.

0:51:47 - There are a shocking amount of free creative/dev tools being released, from high end 3D game engines to animation software used by professional studios worldwide to enterprise-level art tools. We talk about both those and paid tools.

Chris Weston writes fantasy novels/novellas and they're cool sauce! Check them out:
