Good episode. I don't think I have played anything that could be considered a propaganda game.

I like this one, and it raises a concern I've had for a while about so many modern shooters focusing on killing as many Arabs as possible.

New episode: Call of Juarez: The Cartel

Very good one, the game on the other hand is a fucking disgrace.

I thought I might start this thread since I haven't seen it on GAF yet. It's sort of like Zero Punctuation except instead of game reviews it's more about games and the game industry.

Just to recap it first started out as a series of Youtube videos but has now found a fitting new home on The Escapist.

A new one should be popping up later today.

First time I encounter this thread. I'm really disappointed he didn't bring up The Witcher in that video you linked, it's everything the guy wanted. I guess he only plays console games?

The show got too preachy about games being art and less about game design. That's probably been toned down now but I don't feel like going back in. :P

The episode is not very spoilerific (not more than any of the reviews/trailers out there). You should be able to watch it if you are not in a complete de:hr media lockout mode.
It's more about the setting and overarching problems and less about the individual progression.
It mentions a part from the end briefly that isn't really a spoiler and will be disappointing regardless if you know what is coming or not.

New episode is up - Singularity (it's not about that game).

Kind of short and not really about games. To be honest, I'd prefer a "normal" one instead of this, although it was kind of interesting.

Worthwhile to watch if you want to get some background information about the team.

They also think about doing this on a regular basis with Alison and James probably next year.

If they are going to make a career of criticizing games, they should work on their own aesthetic and presentation qualities. The voice is grating, the art is terrible, the ideas that the drawings try to convey are awkward, and the timing is strange.

The core thoughts are good, though. I just think that if they had a bit of art direction and taste those thoughts would reach more people.

I don't mind the presentation of each video, but the voice filter/pitch is fucking annoying.

The art is just fine, but I do agree with the point about the voice. I watched the first bit of that SOPA video and the narrator's normal voice is just fine. He should just drop the filters. They're unnecessary.

Did the narrator show up in the SOPA video? I don't recall seeing him. Maybe you're mixing up the writer (who did show up) of the show with him?

Mailbag #3.

Some questions/answers were pretty interesting. I wonder if it's true that Australian game prices are this high because the Australian Dollar was way weaker in the past - sounds like a plausible explanation.

Also, after the credits they suggest watching the Sequelist.

He really should just use his regular voice in Extra Credits.
