Tzvi and I talk about permadeath in games. How it’s implemented, whether it has a positive or negative effect on the games its part of, and how it reflects a different attitude towards gaming than we had in the past. Then we brooch a topic that we’ve been thinking about for a long time: the idea that friends are the family you choose, and the vastly different ways that both of us have found that idea to be faulty.
This is certainly one of my favorite episodes, I think.
Listen to Episode 18 – Permadeath & Friendship
Atlas Reactor is a new game that isn’t even out of alpha yet. Tzvi and I are both enjoying it immensely and we gush about it a little bit. Although I think we spend the whole episode erroneously calling it “Alpha Reactor.” We’re also both fans of the late great television program “House M.D.,” which we also gush about.
It’s a gushy episode. Wear a raincoat.
Listen to Episode 17 – Atlas Reactor & House M.D.
Maybe come play Atlas Reactor with us?
