Is there joy in Fort Joy?
We would rather Switch than fight.
A divisive game divides us against ourselves.
Surely the only podcast on this game that delves into Shigeru Miyamoto’s reflections after the Sandy Hook massacre.
Someone liked this game. Someone else didn’t. Someone gets angry. Someone else says, “But it’s ‘Uncharted’!”
Steve Gaynor, the designer and writer of “Gone Home” and 2017’s “Tacoma,” talks about why “Tacoma” was so hard to make, what he learned by working with Ken Levine on “BioShock Infinite,” and whether he sees his work as part of a video-game movement.
Chris and JJ agree, more or less, about Ninja Theory’s “Hellblade” and then disagree, vehemently, about Fullbright’s “Tacoma.”
Chris Suellentrop and guest critic Laura Hudson–a contributor to Wired, Slate, The New York Times, and more–talk about “Dream Daddy,” the dad-dating sim that hit No. 1 on Steam.
Chris Suellentrop and guest critic Chris Plante–now the culture editor of The Verge, soon to be executive editor of Polygon–talk about “Tacoma,” Fullbright’s follow-up to “Gone Home.” No spoilers! We’ll save those for when JJ returns next week.
Two divine beasts down, two more to go. Could we play this game forever? Also, some E3 ranting.
