dunceCast Episode 15 – Sense of Place

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , on January 28, 2013 by Matthew VanDevander

Today, on the dunceCast: a new episode of Assman and Outhouse Boy stumbles out the door. A short IMDB rabbit hole. We talk about games we’ve been playing, including Sonic Generations and Far Cry 3. We argue about the merits of sitting around doing nothing all day, and then talk about the best atmospheres and worlds we’ve discovered in games.

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , on January 21, 2013 by Matthew VanDevander

This dunceCast, we premiere the first episode of Assman and Outhouse Boy. We share some Fergie Facts, and somehow discover the Seven Degrees of Jeff Goldblum. We compare some entries in the Metroid series. Davie realizes he don’t care it’s good. We tell a tale of two Far Cries, while David gets too drunk to podcast. Matthew declares Metal Gear Solid 3 is the best MGS, and discovers Alien 3 isn’t shit. NJoy!

dunceCast Episode 13 – If It’s Any Console-ation

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , on January 14, 2013 by Matthew VanDevander

This week the dunceCast is horribly off the rails right from the beginning, but we still find time to talk half-heartedly about CES and the deluge of so-called “consoles” announced there. Don’t despair though, for we have assembled a short list of things to look forward to in 2013. (Or at least what Matthew is looking forward to.) There is a wistful discussion of the perils and wonders of Dungeons and Dragons, and how it differs from video games. We read our first email live on the air, and we crash and burn shortly after.

dunceCast Episode 12 – Unchecked Predictions 2013

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , on January 7, 2013 by Matthew VanDevander

This week’s dunceCast is louder than they have been, so adjust your volume accordingly. We barely planned anything for the show so we discuss what we’ve been playing and watching like one of those Internet radio shows. But we also make some bold predictions for the game industry in 2013!

Show notes take a lot of work, so unless someone starts complaining, I’m not doing them anymore. The general show description will have to do.
