EXP Podcast #441: Considering a Comeback
3 days ago
Sometimes, you play a game once and then bounce off, never to return. Other times you see the potential, but are put off by a weird mechanic. And sometimes you're just too damn lazy to leave the house and interact with other human beings. This week, we discuss some games we're considering returning to. Some of them we've finished, others we originally gave up on. We also invent a new Pokemon Go mechanic that would be as dangerous as it would be entertaining.

I've been listening to the Experience Points podcast off and on for a few years, but have lately been listening nonstop, including exploring their back catalog. Hosts Jorge and Scott are the real thing, hardcore and old-school gamers from that apply analysis of tropes, themes, setting, story, artistic creativity, characters, and much more through the games they've been playing or encountered at events (Games for Change, E3, PAX, etc.). From Goat Simulator to Titanfall, games showcased can include indie games you've never heard of to impressions of hotly anticipated titles they have had hands on experience with. Yet they accomplish exploring these ideas in an amalgam of light-hearted conversation, jokes, anecdotes, and experiences. These are the kind of guys you want to drink a beer with, play some videogames, and have a good time. Their podcast evokes just that.
