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:

Quick Update - April 2, 2016

Greetings folks, Carlos here. A quick update.

Been busy working on my novel, the book version of season 1 of my narrative podcast, Tales From The Orbis Aetherum (shameless plug). Struggled to get it to a beta readable state for a small group of awesome beta readers, so I neglected Anime Raves a bit. Look for more soon.

Added playlists to our YouTube channel, organizing our Anime Raves and podcasts accordingly. The sidebar link to our YouTube page will go directly to said playlists.

That's it. Stay cool, y'all.
