This week’s Game-Wisdom Live was a low key affair. James was unfortunately sick, which left all hosting duties to me. I have set up a discord server for the next live show and we’ll be hopefully testing it out then.
Today’s Critical Thought turns to Early Access and the disaster of Space Base DF-9. Space Base DF-9 was Double Fine’s attempt at Dwarf Fortress play, but issues with production and managing the project. Today’s video is a lesson on what not to do when on Early Access.
With the recent announcement of E3 opening up to the public, today’s Critical Thought is about the two major conferences of the Game Industry. I talked about the differences between E3 and GDC, and what it means for a consumer or member of the industry.
It’s Valentine’s Day today, so I wanted to do something different. For today’s Critical Thought, I talked about one of my favorite relationship/love story of a video game: Odin Sphere. There is spoilers of course, but I didn’t go into detail about the entire game’s plot. If you have a favorite relationship in a video game, let me know in the comments and happy Valentine’s Day, or just Tuesday for the rest of us dateless folks.
