Fighting games and DLC, co-op gaming and more! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #12)

This week on the DDNet podcast, we chat about DLC and fighting games - with it looking more and more like the genre is heading towards F2P and expanding rosters via DLC, what are our tolerance thresholds for these things.

Then we chat about that old chestnut - violence and game addiction, and in particular how the media portrays these things.

Finally, and to finish things off on a happier note, we chat about the resurgence in co-op gaming.

Come chat with us on Twitter if you'd like, and thanks for tuning in!

The games of April! Also Okami in-depth and more! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #11)

Amazingly enough, after one very busy February and March, April is shaping up to be something of a relief from the endless big releases. Still, there's a few gems in there, so we help highlight the titles you should be keeping an eye out for.

We also get a bit nostalgic in looking back at the games that convinced us to get really into video games in the first place. To write about games and spend a lot of time doing things like podcasts it needs to be more than a hobby to us, so we thought we'd have a chat about what really drove us to take our passion for games that far.

Finally, we have a great chat about Okami and why that game is not a "Zelda-clone" for a reason.

Tomb Raider! Yakuza! Rhythm games! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #10)

This week's podcast was an eclectic mix!

First up, we talked about Tomb Raider; the games, the movie, and the IP in general. It's been a busy couple of weeks for Lara and her adventures.

Then we talked about rhythm games, in light of DJ Max turning us a bit batty, and then Yakuza 0, as the world gears up to get stuck right in to Yakuza 6. What a game that was.

Thanks for tuning in! As always, catch us on Twitter if you'd like to chat!

Awesome bad games, Nintendo Direct, and Life Is Strange! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #9)

Last week brought us a new Nintendo Direct, so of course we had to have a good chat about that. We also took a look at games that are "bad", in that they don't play well by conventional standards, but we love them anyway.

And for our in-depth look at a game, we have a chat about the original Life Is Strange, which remains one of the very best examples of storytelling in games that you can find.

Thanks as always for tuning in, and grab us on Twitter if you'd like!

Nintendo Switch turns one, Square Enix remakes and Bayonetta! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #8)

The Nintendo Switch has been in our lives for one year now, so we take a look back at that year, and just amaze ourselves with just how good that console is.

We also have a chat about Square Enix's recent efforts to dip into its back catalogue - the new release of Chrono Trigger and the remaster of Secret of Mana, and try and figure out what's going so wrong there.

Finally, for our in-depth look at a game this week we have a chat about how much we love Bayonetta.

Catch us on Twitter, and thanks for tuning in!

The games of March, Danganronpa, and do games make you violent? (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #7)

Well, last week was a dramatic one in the games industry, what with Donald Trump suggesting that games cause the massacres over in the US (and not, you know, the guns).

So we have a chat about that, and the broader implications on how we should be talking about this kind of material in games. We also look at the (many) game releases that we're looking forward to in March, and take a close look at Danganronpa, as a masterpiece of visual novel design.

Enjoy! And chat with us on Twitter:

Is 2018 the year of fighting games? Also realism in games and The Caligula Effect (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #6)

It has already been an incredible year for fighting games, what with that Dragon Ball one, Dissidia, and niche stuff like Under Night and Slice, Dice & Rice. And Soul Calibur VI is just on the horizon! So we talk about that this week.

We also chat about realism in games and how it's probably not a good idea for developers to promise "realism" when that's impossible to deliver.

Finally, we take a close look at The Caligula Effect this week; a PlayStation Vita exclusive originally that was announced for a PlayStation 4 remaster last year. We do hope the game gets a second look this time around (if it gets localised at all).
